Can you imagine how we look to them, still battling colorism within our own community? It’s really sad and unfortunate that this is still an issue.Apparently this is also still an issue across the board even outside of our community.And it’s not the first time that Matthew Knowles has said this either.Beyoncé’s father, and former manager, spoke about the study of colorism in the music industry that he conducted.He said that if his daughter were of a dark toned skin, it would have affected her success.Here’s what else he had to say.
