When the media uses people of colour in ads, magazines, etc. and lightens their skin in an effort to be more "marketable" read: white and "appealing" read: white to a larger white audience.

This process lightens the skin so much that the person in question bears little resemblance to a real person of colour and is obviously fake.

"Why do Venus and Serena Williams look about 4 shades lighter than normal in the new iPhone commercial?"
