It's supposed to mean "I'm high-key being racist but sugarcoating it to make it seem like I have good intentions"
                              This is why my faith in humanity is so dead

I resent this. People who say this seriously need to fall off the face of the earth

A girl told me once that I would be very pretty as a white girl
even i have to face racism because of my skin color.
                              Indian are so obsessed with fair skin.

What does this mean indeed and why don't we ever hear "she's pretty for a light skin? " Pretty is pretty, no colour needed.

You see, in my home country even dark skinned people are given labels...the light skinned are known as yellows..the ones who are full of melanin are known as blues or greens...white people are known as reds... Just thought I'd let you know that your reference here is of meaning back in my country
