In this clip, Nick Cannon spoke about the crippling effects colorism has had on the Black community. He and DJ Vlad discussed the issue from a music industry/entertainment perspective and noticed how many of the chart-topping acts are all light, to fair-skinned women. Despite running off a few anomalous artists, the overwhelming majority of women that are considered beautiful are not of darker complexion. Nick even said that he has to explicitly ask for dark-skinned women to be represented on Wild 'N Out, otherwise the whole cast of Wild 'N Out girls would be "beige."
