Color Prejudice in India
India’s obsession with fair skin is well known and deep rooted. Color prejudice is widespread and practised openly across the country. Indian society believes skin color determines a person’s worth. The Advertising Standards Council of India attempted to address skin-based discrimination in 2014 by banning ads that depict people with darker skin as inferior. This was a step in the right direction, but it failed to change much. Four years later, India’s media and advertisement industries are still promoting the idea that women with dark complexions should aspire to be fairer. India stands on the verge of being one of the color prejudiced countries whose color, case, gender and status of person are the parameters to judge people.
