Pigmentocratic

adjective; derivation Affixation
To describe the usage of colour of skin tone in applying them to things like regimes or policies.
 
“Rooting our racial theory on the historical experiences of the oldest racial regimes in the world might help us understand things such as the importance of intermediate racial categories, the rationality of pigmentocractic regimes, the disappearance of race in discourse but not in practice, the seemingly nonconscious way in which race works in most of the world, and how color-blind racism, which is dominant in the Western nations of the world-system (Bonilla-Silva 2000), is but an off- shoot of the racial democracy myth. “
Etymology : Affixation of “-o-“ and “cratic” to “pigment” to form “pigmentocratic”
