Amber Rose Claps Back At Kodak Black’s Horrible Comments About “Dark-Skinned Black Women"
Kodak Black recently caused a firestorm on social media after his comments on black women.

The Florida rapper brought the controversy to himself after first saying that he doesn’t date black women, then later reaffirming by stating that it’s only “dark skinned women” that he doesn’t date. 

After initial backlash on social media, Kodak Black first tried to explain his statement during an interview at fellow rapper Master P’s charity basketball game. “I just said I don’t like women with my complexion.” said the 20-year old rapper. 

“I like light-skinned women. I want you to be lighter than me. I love African American women, but I don’t like my skin complexion. We too gutter…my complexion, we too gutter. Light-skinned women, they more sensitive.” 

As you can imagine, his explanation failed miserably, with even more people rebuking the rapper’s thoughts on social media.

Recently, model and actress Amber Rose has taken to social media to give her own two cents about the situation. Rose took to Instagram to discuss not only the words of Kodak Black, but her own experiences with colorism.

“This really makes me sad.” Said Rose in an Instagram post. “Being a “Yellowbone”, mixed, light-skinned woman, I unfortunately know that modeling jobs, boys and opportunities came to me easier, but did not realize that until I got older.” 
In her post, Amber Rose touched on different aspects of her experiences with colorism, including seeing colorism during her acting career and even during her career as a dancer. “Even when I was a stripper, maybe there were 1 or 2 brown-skinned girls that would get hired because they didn’t want the club to be ‘too black’.”

Rose ended the post by calling for all women to come together against colorism. “We are all smart and capable of being great!” said the model. “No matter where we come from or what complexion we are! If no one tells you you’re beautiful I’m here to tell you that you are! Let’s change the stigma, I love you all!”

The post was full of comments from women who all loved and appreciated the message from Amber Rose.

Smh this really makes me so sad. Being a "yellowbone" 🙄 mixed light-skinned woman I know unfortunately that Modeling jobs, boys and opportunities came to me easier but did not realize that until I got older. Growing up in Philly I went to an all black school. I was the "white girl" The one that the boys DIDN'T like, The girl that wasn't as cool as the brown skinned girls. Black was the thing to be! 😍 But for me my mom was my only black parent, my dad was as white as snow and I came out just as light as him. I would lay out in the sun and try to get as dark as I could. I would look at all of the beautiful dark skinned girls in my class and wish that I could wear bright color shirts like they did but it never quite looked as good on my complexion...... but the Brown skinned girls would pick on me, pull my hair and want to fight me for no reason? Why tho?! I loved them! I wanted to be them! Little did I know at such a young age society was teaching them to hate me. Society was telling these girls that they weren't as beautiful as me because of their complexion. They were too strong and too outspoken. It was OK for men to have sex with them behind closed doors but not OK to have them on their arm. As if light skinned girls were some type of trophy for a man, it was a social status smh. Insinuating that he had money or he just had a "bad [expletive]". I wanted to be them and they wanted to be me. Getting older I found myself always battling racism and feminism, asking directors why isn't there any dark skinned girls in the music videos I was featured in? Even when I was Stripper maybe there were 1 or 2 brown skinned girls that would get hired because they didn't want the club to be too "Black" 😔 I can't help that I was born with light skin but I am a woman before anything else! We need to stick together as women and educate society, educate men like this with black mothers! Not let men/people dictate what type of woman is in style or more beautiful. We are all smart and capable of being great! No matter where we come from or what complexion we are! If no one tells you you're beautiful I'm here to tell you that you are! 😍 let's change the stigma I love you all - Muva
