Blanqueamiento - Cultural Colonialism, Internalized Racism, blanqueamiento, adelantar la familia

The concept of blanqueamiento refers to ethnic, cultural, and racial “whitening.” Blanqueamiento, an ideology as well as a social practice, is a major form of racism in the United States. It is a racist way of thinking that places value on white Anglo culture while implicitly devaluing nonwhite cultures. In turn, blanqueamiento works to recreate a social hierarchy based on race and to perpetuate white supremacy. Yet, because such racist beliefs are so pervasive in society and its institutions, they often remain invisible or are ignored.
