So a lightskin black woman doesnt count as black? That mentality is ridiculous. I agree with Pharrell.

Had no idea that the woman he is married to considers herself "Black"

She's like Kevin Hart's woman, very Asian/mixed-Asian looking


Even if he was married to Black-looking Black woman, does that somehow grant him of the ability to perpetuate colorism?

He doesn't get any points for marrying black though?

Where did you hear this?…lol

Perpetuate colorism .. oh geese … I don't feel like touching that one.
I guess you just have to go by their track record.

OoDles O,

What exactly is it that you have a problem with? In terms of my criticism?

Is he not perpetuating colorism?





He is a Black man... he made it a point to be surrounded by women who are not his complexion... on an album, titled G I R L, paying homage to women. He literally excluded women who mirror his image on his album in favor for 3 that don't Stern Smile


ok Oodles, this has nothing to do with colorism. Nothing at all

I heard the interview this morning on my way to the gym, he had that I just want 'people" to love my music, 'I'm a artist" , music has no colors vibe going. 

All the artist he names working with were all white, Bieber, Lourdes, Thicke, when he kept saying how soulful Robin Thicke was and kept comparing him to Marvin Gaye I turned the station to Rickey Smiley.

light skinned black people are still black but everyone knows light skinned black women are used as the token because they're more palatable to the general public so why keep perpetuating that when you have a huge platform?
