1) A term used by African Americans to describe a person who partakes in colorism, which is racism within one's own race.
2) Color struck people subconsciously practice racism within their own race. Most of the time, they are unaware that they practice it and are in denial.
2) A color struck person praises and prefers lighter skin over darker skin. As a result, lighter skinned blacks will benefit from light skin privilege.
3) A color struck person also praises and prefers loose curly hair over kinky hair.
4) Color struck people have the audacity to complain about racism, but practice racism within their own race. Hypocrites.
