Discrimination of people THE SAME RACE? How do I deal?

I did go to a mostly black school but now I am in a school that mostly has whites in it. They where really nice to me. Back at my old school it was dark skinned blacks -vs- light skinned blacks I am "yellow" and the dark skinned ones called us things from "cornbread kids to "light bright almost white". Why do some of them hate us so much?

Update:

This still goes on in my neighborhood to. When people ask me what race I am and I say "black" some them say I'm lying.

Update 2:

-shrugs- I don't know either. At least I go to a school now that welcomes blacks light and dark.

    That's sad. This is evidential that your own race is their own worst enemy.

    I haven't a clue what the obssession with skin colors is in your race.
