Mathew Knowles Clarifies Comments On Colorism/ New Book ‘Destiny’s Child: The Untold Story’ On The Way.

Questions…

A week ago, Mathew Knowles made headlines because of his recent Ebony Magazine interview.

Mathew Knowles  talked about colorism in the Black community and how he thought ex-wife Tina Knowles was white when they first met….

How have you and your family experienced colorism?

When I was growing up, my mother used to say, “Don’t ever bring no nappy-head Black girl to my house.” In the deep South in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, the shade of your Blackness was considered important. So I, unfortunately, grew up hearing that message.

I have a chapter in the book that talks about eroticized rage. I talk about going to therapy and sharing–one day I had a breakthrough–that I used to date mainly White women or very high-complexion Black women that looked White. I actually thought when I met Tina, my former wife, that she was White. Later I found out that she wasn’t, and she was actually very much in-tune with her Blackness.

I had been conditioned from childhood. With eroticized rage, there was actual rage in me as a Black man, and I saw the White female as a way, subconsciously, of getting even or getting back. There are a lot of Black men of my era that are not aware of this thing.

I’m sure you noticed similar patterns of colorism once you joined the music industry.

Oh, of course!  I challenge my students at Texas Southern to think about this.  When it comes to Black females, who are the people who get their music played on pop radio? Mariah Carey, Rihanna, the female rapper Nicki Minaj, my kids [Beyonce and Solange], and what do they all have in common?

They’re all lighter skinned.

Do you think that’s an accident?

Of course not!

So you get it!

In a new interview Page Six, Mathew clarifies his recent statement about colorism.

During an interview Mathew Knowles expanded upon his forthcoming book, “Racism From the Eyes of a Child,” by stating that the passages stem from his point of view and shouldn’t be pinned to his daughters, Beyonce and Solange Knowles.

“My life is based on this book of getting a broad range of people to begin dialogue about racism,” Knowles said. “My daughters are mentioned once in this book. This book is not about my daughters. This book is about how I feel and the road that I’m sharing with the audience of racism and how it affected me.”

He added he never had a “discussion about colorism” with his daughters or other members of Destiny’s Child because he felt “that’s not a conversation that I thought they needed to be a part of.” In an interview with Ebony magazine that sparked this conversation, Knowles said his mother used to tell him to not bring a “nappy-head black girl” home and experienced the “brown paper bag test” when he was a student at Fisk University in the early 70s.

“I have a chapter in the book that talks about eroticized rage,” Knowles said. “I talk about going to therapy and sharing-one day I had a breakthrough-that I used to date mainly white women or very high-complexion black women that looked white. I actually thought when I met Tina [Knowles-Lawson], my former wife, that she was white. Later I found out that she wasn’t, and she was actually very much in-tune with her blackness.”

Also… Mathew Knowles also shared that he’s working on his next book that’ll focus on untold stories behind the award-winning group, Destiny’s Child. He remained tight-lipped on whether or not the passage will feature interviews from all its members.

 

Steve Harvey Fires Back At Charity Lawsuit

 

The end of last year, Steve Harvey is being sued by a guy who claims he was hired by the TV mogul to raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie Foundation as well as other ventures and got royally stiffed. Click Here if you missed that.

Steve Harvey responds in the latest court documents obtained by TMZ.

According to reports, Harvey just filed legal docs firing back at Vincent Dimmock, who claimed in his lawsuit he struck a deal with Harvey back in April to raise $20 million, and in return he was promised 12.5% of everything he raked in. He says he got a bunch of A-listers on board and even a former President … with pledges totaling $20 mil.

Harvey is calling BS, saying Dimmock originally reached out to him to promote an energy drink, and when that went nowhere Harvey says Dimmock pivoted and falsely told him he had a billionaire in his pocket who would invest big in Harvey’s charity….

Harvey says the entire charade was part of a scheme for Dimmock to meet him.
