There are biases within a race. We black folks not only endure racism from the outside, but must struggle with bias within our own race. For example, in terms of favoring one skin tone over the other, sayings such as "the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice" (meaning the darker the skin, the better) are often used. Other phrases accuse a black person of acting white, being saditty or uppity. If we call someone a sellout, that person is turning their back on their blackness and catering to white people. An Uncle Tom is a man who is obedient to white people. A black person who thinks and acts above their status is known as bougie. An oreo is a person who is black on the outside and white on the inside - a wannabe. Light-skinned women are referred to as redbones or high-yellow. Black women either have good or bad hair. All of these labels have been used for decades and whether we'd admit it or not, are forms of bias against our own.
