India’s unfair obsession with lighter skin

This article in the The Guardian on India’s obsession with lighter skin is the same problem. I am always angered by the fact that South Asians try to be lighter. Even those who are as dark or even darker than African and African Americans try to distance themselves. It is the fact that South Asians try to distant themselves from African and African Americans so that they are not at the bottom of the racial hierarchy.
