Black and White in ‘Shades of Grey

'On the alter of prejudice we crucify our own, yet- The blood of all children is the color of God'
…..????????John William Jr.

Culture, language, religion and region play important roles in an individual being favored or discriminated against, // but the mother of all reasons is, the person’s skin color.

Recently, the voyeuristic world reeled under the impact of the venom spewed on Shilpa Shetty by fellow contestants on UK’s reality show, ‘Celebrity Big Brother’. The participants, who were drawn from various sections of the western society, were living in social isolation, as the rules of the game demanded. Sharing space with people who were dissimilar, invoked the smoldering demons of pride, prejudice, discrimination and racial intolerance, resulting in the reality show getting too ‘real’ for comfort.

What is the basis of this unsavory loathe, exclusive to the Homo sapiens? It has been widely propounded that the origin of prejudice, based on color, can be traced to biblical times, when Ham, the son of Noah, came to be portrayed as ‘black’ after he was ‘blessed’ with a curse from his father. What actually transpired can be best left to the father –son duo, but the curse of the father transformed his son into a ‘black’ being-someone accursed. This prototype, sadly, holds sway even today in several regions of the globe, with blackness being equated to backwardness and servitude, and has been used to justify slavery in various parts of the world.

It is imperative that we analyze the scientific basis that paved way for society’s color- coded stratification. In humans, melanin is a pigment that imparts color to the skin, hair, pigmented epithelium of the retina, zona recticularis of the adrenal gland, stria vascularis of the inner ear and some areas of the brain. Melanin molecules are composed of aggregates of smaller molecules of polyacetylene,
