Amber Rose (a.k.a “MuvaRose”) was the hot topic last night on the Internet when, without warning and no note to toll her reasoning, she posted pics to her social media site in a string bikini-showing her backside while overlooking the balcony from some high rise.
Considering the fact she was just added to the OWN special “Light Girls” (airing Monday), we’re hoping she’s ready for the backlash and different kind of Internet attention should it be found that her backstory (as given in the previews) was such that being of mixed heritage (with includes a mix of African American), her family was not at all pleased with her decision to marry (black/AA) rapper Wiz Khalifa—because he is black.
[In the previews of the clip for the show airing Monday] Amber expressed this as her story entry’s backstory]:
“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. 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,”
You know aside from the love, the World Snide Web is always available (and on the lookout) for a kink in your armor, to knock you off your square, to kick the pep in your step, or to shish on your grind and shine. And they are already geared up for her and all we can say at this point is, we’re hoping she can explain this.
You see, the tweets were twatching, and have turned states evidence tweets evidence in as discovered from back in February 2012 when Amber proudly tweeted:
“Found out my Ancestors on my Moms side are all from Ayshire, Scotland 9 Generations! This is so freakin Cool #ImScottishBitch :-)”
In the personal interview for the upcoming documentary, Rose shares her hurt and personal stories of colorism by her family which ultimately affected her wedding day as, although they were invited, they did not share her special day with her.
For the record.
Here are some pics of Amber with her mother (who could indeed “pass” [for] / be “Creole”):
…and well, here are her aunties and cousins (who CLEARLY look “African American”). Guess we’ll have to see how that divide is making them too, eh?
