Thanks! I tried to keep it from being too American or US centric, but I'm American and am therefore limited to what I know. I think it could use more international commentary. Also, given that this could be a potentially hot button article for trolls, adding more links to outside sources would be great. I wrote mostly from what I've learned and studied in school / read about over the years (which could use a fact check anyways).
By the way, we may need to summarize and cut some paragraphs because the page became overly long.
really? I've DEFINITELY seen longer useful notes pages. Is there a specific word limit we have to keep it under?
So, do we have any idea on what to do with the main But Not Too Black page?
I started a "mixed race people are attractive" draft from some Mixed Ancestry examples, since that is being detroped. (The description links to But Not Too Black in the meantime.) Might help here.

Don't think there's a word limit for these things but generally speaking they don't need to be that long.
Well, how about we redefine it to characters experiencing discrimination because they are dark skinned and then rename it as discussed at the beginning?
I would typically agree if I thought there was info redundancy. Wordiness, sure, edit away. But information-wise, I don't think there's anything I would recommend outright removing. For comparison, here's the useful notes page for Existentialism, which is almost 1400 words. The current But Not Too Black draft is just under 1200. Similarly, the page for Dyslexia is also around 1200.
Typically, I've found that useful notes pages that explain sociological concepts or historical events / time periods are on the longer end since there's a certain amount of historical context needed
Bumping since it's been a month.
While was my preferred "redefinition", I think it needs a few more s since the crowner option for redefinition was quite vague.

How well does it match the trope?
