Colorism in the Latinx Community

Light-skin, dark-skin, curly hair, and straight hair these are stereotypes of colorism. It just doesn't happen in the African American community; it also occurs in the Latinx community. Francesca Rodriguez-Williams of Yo!Checka TV joins the table to explore the conundrum of the skin complexion in the Latinx community.
