Most of it is rooted in slavery. The lighter-skinned slaves or "mulattoes" were the offspring of the slave master and were subject to preferential treatment (education, less laborious tasks) and got to live on the plantation as house slaves. As a result, it created rivalry between the darker field slaves and the lighter house slaves. Many of the lighter skinned slaves thought more highly of themselves because of them being partly white and not facing the same degree of life's hardships as the darker field slaves. Unfortunately, to this day, this line of thinking still exists within the black community as a remnant.

The media. If I was an alien and came to this planet and heard about this I'll be like "WTF!!". It's unbelievable how people still think this way. It's so stupid.
