In the 21st Century, a grim vestige of this tradition lives on in African-American culture, as women with dark complexion often find themselves looked down upon by their peers, considered less attractive, less intelligent and less refined than women with a lighter skin tone.

"""Minstrel shows affected perceptions by turning people into caricatures that dehumanized many black Americans to the point where a lot of the stuff they made up still affect us today. It introduced stock characters like Jim Crow and Zip Coon. This is why blackface is considered offensive, though for some reason many get offended that it's considered offensive (the arguments vary, and very few are even worth sociological consideration). There are ways of satirizing the concept of blackface and giving social commentary without dehumanizing people. Black culture continued to thrive in the twentieth century, but the legacy of minstrelsy still lingered and does so today. Some defend the concept by citing the fact that there were black minstrel performers who appealed to black audiences, but there are varying reasons as to why this is. Wikipedia has some good quotes on it: > The minstrel show played a powerful role in shaping assumptions about blacks. However, unlike vehemently anti-black propaganda from the time, minstrelsy made this attitude palatable to a wide audience by couching it in the guise of well intentioned paternalism. Blacks were in turn expected to uphold these stereotypes or else risk white retaliation. > Popular entertainment perpetuated the racist stereotype of the uneducated, ever-cheerful, and highly musical black well into the 1950s. Even as the minstrel show was dying out in all but amateur theater, blackface performers became common acts on vaudeville stages and in legitimate drama. These entertainers kept the familiar songs, dances, and pseudo-black dialect, often in nostalgic looks back at the old minstrel show. The most famous of these performers is probably Al Jolson, who took blackface to the big screen in the 1920s in films such as The Jazz Singer (1927)."""
