My popular source is about how people of color, focusing on African Americans, are more likely to get or obtain jobs in the workforce if they have more distinct Eurocentric features, and a lighter skin tone. People of color with a darker skin tone are less likely to get jobs and move up in the workforce. The author also emphasizes the implications that colorism has on society and possible ways to fix this issue through systematic changes, and encourages further research into this topic to bring more light to the subject.
