Claudia Jordan From RHOA Disses Dark Skin People? I guess a Housewife isn’t a housewife unless there is some sort of controversy. Well at least that is the case for ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’cast. New member Claudia Jordan is just following the rules.The new house wife is another housewife without a husband( Kenya Moore doesn’t have a husband either) and she is stirring the pot and creating conflict already. She dished in her first episode about being biracial and how it is/was difficult for her. Her mother is Italian and she never quite fit in with either side. She never was “black enough” and “black girls didn’t like her because of the whole dark skinned light skinned thing” However She is in the news for allegedly dissing dark skinned people. Is the a case of the pot calling the kettle black? Were her comments really hurtful or was it just an innocent joke? Let me know in the comments. Find out what she said below

“In the clip she says she can only see “the beige people” at the all black party and starts naming a bunch of fair-skinned people. She says “Everybody else, I can only see teeth and eyes.”Colorism is a huge issue in the world and especially in black communities. It can be traced all the way back to slavery. Many African and Caribbean countries spend a lot of dollars on skin bleaching products. Viola Davis was told recently that she wasn’t a classic beauty by the New York Times because of her dark skin. Oprah created a special in 2013 dedicated to ‘Dark Girls’

“Dark Girls” is a fascinating and controversial documentary film that goes underneath the surface to explore the prejudices that dark-skinned women face throughout the world.It explores the roots of classism, racism and the lack of self-esteem within a segment of cultures that span from America to the most remote corners of the globe. Oprah is also doing a Special that tells the other side of the story called “Light Girls” The documentary, will look at how lighter-skinned women are impacted by the rigors of colorism.
