In this episode of The Research Report Show (Season 1, Episode 1), Tinashe chats with Slindile Mbatha about her research titled “Understanding skin colour: Exploring colourism and its articulation among black and coloured students”. Slindile defines Colourism as “prejudicial treatment of individuals based on varying degrees of skin colour” and goes on to explain that this has significant implications for people of colour, who are often targets of racism, but also perpetrators of skin tone discrimination among their own racial group.
