Yep I'm from India here dark skin people are considered ugly even though they're in good shape but people who're overweight but light skin are considered average or decent looking than dark skin people. But that's the case in my country I want to if it universal or people in my country are extremely racist.
Where are you getting that from? Some of the most racist people I've ever met are Arabs. I know this because I married into an Arab family. Literally faced racism from them directly and faced it when I travelled across Arab countries.
@Wraith_Cemetery There is a caste system in India, I'm sure you know or heard about. They judge by skin color, and unfortunately the darker the skin, the less chances you have in succeeding at anything there. However--- we have the same problem in America, it seems.
@Amy10223 I'm aware of the racism within a caste system. The anonymous person said there isn't as much racism in Arab and Asian countries. But there is lots of it. Even slavery still exists in some parts.
@Wraith_Cemetery You misunderstood my opinion. I never said thatWhat i meant was Arabs and Asians are more open about their view that only light skin is beautiful and dark skin is ugly. You won't find such open remarks and criticisms about your skin colour in Western countries
@Asker Oh ok, that makes sense. Sorry the misunderstanding. I agree with that definitely. They' were very open about the racism towards me. They'd say it right to my face. Westerners have racist beliefs hidden beneath the service and it would only come out in certain situations.
Isn’t that a kind of prejudice? Thinking that light skin is more beautiful than dark skin? I find that to be the same. Even if they are open about it, it seems like racial intolerance.
