It wasn’t long before Candiace replied and wrote in the comments: “Because she is fair skinned. There. I said it. Let’s see how quickly word gets around. ‘
But that was not all! She later used her Twitter account to share her own experiences as a dark-skinned woman working on reality TV.
“Let me point out that there was a time about 3 1/2 years ago (when I was just stepping onto my most public stage) when I made the same comments and brought up very similar conversations about race and colorism – because it and it was always part of my everyday life as a brown-skinned woman of color – and I’ve received incredible hatred from the public. Expressions of discomfort – even anger that I talked about race. ‘
Thankfully, it looks like such discussions are much more welcome these days and the star expressed relief at this positive change.
She added, “The experience was just very enlightening and I wanted to document how much vitriol I got from talking about being a black woman or talking about colorism and all the privileges that those with lighter ones have Skin to be granted. “
