Americans (and Latinos) as more intelligent, competent, trustworthy and
reliable than their darker-skinned peers. A 2006 study found that
dark-skinned black men with MBAs were less likely to be hired than
lighter-skinned black men who only possessed bachelor’s degrees. A 2010

University study found that, 'African American and Latino respondents with
the lightest skin are several times more likely to be seen by whites as

House"). Das right, bro: Jigs judge each other by skin color first, not by
any "content of character"...
