The politics of ‘Blackness’

The terms are used by ruling classes around the globe as an indicator of who is to be favored and who is to be used or discarded. In Thailand, those who work in the fields are by consequence, darker than those who work inside buildings. Those who are genetically of fairer skin are selected for office work while the dark people are relegated to the fields.
