"Do Light-Skinned Blacks Have It Easier?"
Tyra spends the hour discussing a race issue still dividing the black community -- the varying shades of skin. Tensions are high when a panel of people with different skin tones takes the stage. Meet a light-skinned woman who believes her skin color makes her more attractive, a man who thinks light-skinned women are snobby and a mother who said she does not want her young son to ever date a dark-skinned girl. The audience is filled with African-American women who are divided into groups according to how they see themselves. Then, Whitney, Eugena, Felicia and Noelle from "America's Next Top Model" are on hand to discuss how their skin color affected their jobs in the fashion industry.
