When it comes to being accused of being a colorist, Eva Marcille has had about enough.
She’s already denied that her remark about Shamea was rooted in colorism.
The RHOA newbie even called out Kandi Burruss for making the accusation on social media.
Now Eva has more to say in a recent interview.
This is what she told Mara, The Hip-Hop Socialite, when asked about it:
That was recklessly irresponsible, recklessly irresponsible. To make an indictment like that that’s so sweeping to say that I have an issue with color is a huge problem. Furthermore, not to clarify it, but even if you had that notion, which I gave you no reason to have that notion, but if you have some type of past issues growing up in the south and being a beautiful, darker complexion black woman and that’s your hang-up – you know what I’m saying – then I appreciate that, but that’s not my issue. I never had that issue, and I definitely know it exists. It’s a huge problem in communities of color, and not just African Americans, but in the brown community, in the Middle Eastern community, you know, and so to make an accusation like that, I think it is very irresponsible for someone who does not like false accusations said about her. I think it’s disingenuous because she knew what she was doing, and even if she didn’t say the exact words ‘she doesn’t like dark skinned girls’, to make that assertion of maybe she was saying – I made no assertion that way at all. Unless she said something, no one would’ve thought that – “black with a q”, are you serious? I don’t know, but I’m definitely a black woman with black parents, and I never associated “black with a q” to mean anything about dark versus light, so I think it was extremely irresponsible.
