It is true. Even in India people who are fair, think they are superior to those who are dark.
Because of this attitude, in many countries, after the British/Portuguese left, Indians were disliked.

Indians immediately feel Superior to dark skinned people here in India itself. Forget about Africa!
Primarily Dark skinned or black is associated with lower castes, especially the h*a*rijan*s. This, all Indians carry in their minds when they face an African. Hence the racist treatment. On the other hand Indians cry Racism! when whites of Western world call them 'blackies' or 'darkies' (even though they may be fair complexioned).

People in general have bodily concept only. As Gita says, this body is like shirt and changed when next birth takes place. If we realize that "Paramatma dwels in every living and non-living things, we overcome bodily concepts. Zulu's feeling is genuine.

Because it take a lot of time and generations,
to overcome deep rooted prejudices.
Even in S. Africa, inter racial marriages were not allowed
during the White regime.
