An Eye Opening Conversation About Colorism With Evrod Cassimy

When I grew up, I had lots of bouts with colorism, from the kid that smeared lotion all over my clothing because I was light-skinned, to a former employer telling me I got the job not because I was qualified, but because I filled two quotas for them… a woman, and black (but not that black). So, when WDIV’s Evrod Cassimy called me to tell me about this feature he is doing tonight… I had to share.


Colorism is still alive, and after talking with students at Renaissance High School in Detroit, Evrod and I have decided it’s time to open that discussion for you as well.

An Eye Opening Conversation About Colorism With Evrod Cassimy


I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
