Talking about colorism or skin color politics is still taboo in the United States, but if you want to have a real conversation about identity politics you have to understand how colorism, not racism, is part of the picture. Same Family, Different Colors examines the concept of colorism in the African American, Latino, Asian American and Mixed Race communities. The New York Times said Same Family, Different Colors was a thoughtful, honest, historically textured and valuable book.
