Colourism - The Book

This is a book on my thoughts on Colourism and I suppose this is my own foreword to my own book. It isn't a book yet, but I intend to organize it better. I have been thinking of the issue of colourism for quite a while, and I feel that I won't be at peace until I compose my thoughts about it properly. What has bothered me most is the feeling that it is not being tackled the right way, that most of the people discussing are not proceeding from the viewpoint of reforming society.

Which leads me to add one Remark: That the Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth. I could wish their Numbers were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, Scouring our Planet, by clearing America of Woods, and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of Inhabitants in Mars or Venus, why should we in the Sight of Superior Beings, darken its People? why increase the Sons of Africa, by Planting them in America, where we have so fair an Opportunity, by excluding all Blacks and Tawneys, of increasing the lovely White and Red? But perhaps I am partial to the Complexion of my Country, for such Kind of Partiality is natural to Mankind.

You are African. Why do you focus on India so much?

In summary it is down to the fact of the features of colourism in India manifesting in the American setting, and then creeping into Africa.

Let us consider the nature of colourism in three different parts of the world, Europe, Africa and Asia. In Asia. In the case of Africa I am referring to Sub-Saharan Africa and with Asia I am referring to Indian subcontinent in particular.

I focus on these three regions in particular on account of ther racial and ethnic homogeneity, although in India an allowance has to be made for caste differences.

This is where every page will be listed, hopefully. It may be somewhat disorganised at the start, but may get better with the passage of time, hopefully. It will definitely get rearranged as the natural structure of the topics become more obvious

Organization

Submitted by Carlos Quinto on Tue, 26/03/2019 - 21:28

The topics will be organized as a book, with each page having links to the previous, next, and parent pages. I will be updating a master page with the newer pages as I write them and that will be the page regular views should visit to see new pages and updated ones.

Views on Approaches to Tackling Colourism

Submitted by Carlos Quinto on Tue, 26/03/2019 - 21:26

Over the years I viewed a number of discussions and approaches to colourism and none of them has sat well with me. It is a multifaceted issue and none of them have really tackled the various parts of the problem properly. It is one of tribal values, maturity of young men, pre-marital sex, easy divorce, media influences, social engineering, generational differences and a whole lot of other things besides. Each feature is not tackled properly and separately to give the young people a deeper understanding of themselves.
