Amber Rose recently shared in an interview for the documentary “Light Girls,” which premieres tonight on OWN at 9 p.m. est — that some of her family did not attend her 2013 wedding to Wiz Khalifa because he is African-American.
Rose, 31, who is half Italian, half Cape Verdean, revealed that some of her relatives missed seeing her big day because they felt like their race [Creole] was “more superior or better” than African-Americans.
She also suggested that some of her family members think African-Americans lack “culture” — which is a common uneducated opinion and misconception other races/ethnicities/backgrounds use when discussing African-Americans and culture.
“With my family, they feel like they’re more superior or better than an African-American because we’re Creole and we have culture and that’s something I battle with most of my life.” It’s more of the older people in my family.
“It’s such a sensitive subject that it’s hard to explain yourself without sounding mean or bitter or angry, but I am,” she shared. “I’m angry that my family is like that and they want to pass so bad that they raise my mom and my uncles and my aunts to not fully know their culture.”
“Our younger generation, we’ve embraced it so much and I feel like that’s why my father is white.”
