“Love And Hip Hop Miami” stars discussed colorism on the latest episode. Sukihana decided to throw an event and she invited PreMadonna, Amara La Negra, Miami Tip, Hood Brat, and Kamillion to participate in the discussion. Each woman opened up about their own experiences.

Some people were offended by what Miami Tip had to say. So they took to social media to call her out.

After Tip saw some of the backlash, she decided to respond. And she apologized to the black women she offended.

        After living n Cali amongst a large community of interracial people I get 2 realize she’s telling the truth. They do have a hard time fitting in with those who aren’t interracial. She’s not lying

          Please stop. Not being able to fit in is not colorism. She’ll never have to hear anyone tell her she’s pretty for a light skinned girl. Women with her complexion are more likely to get hired, married, and even serve lighter sentences in prison. People with her complexion are assumed to be smarter. People with her complexion are paid more than dark skinned people in Corporate America. Women with her skin tone aren’t seen as undesirable. I can go on and on. Y’all really need to stop trying to make it seem like biracial people don’t have privileges. Right now Tip is on IG saying she went through so much because she had “pretty hair.” She’s an idiot. Colorism is the mistreatment of dark skinned people in the black community. Stop highjacking the conversation with this nonsense.

            Not just the black community though, h-ll colorism happens in every ethic group. Dark skinned people are just looked down on. And light is right. It’s messed up.

          That’s not colorism. What part of that do you all not understand?

    I hate when light skinned women make colorism about themselves. That’s all I have to say.

      Um. I’m mixed. More pale. Got the kinkiest of hair with colored eyes. And color is I’m applies to anyone. So you can stfu with ya ignorant a-s replies. Just cuz you’re dark it only applies to you? Nah, cuz i went through racism from the darkest of Mrs, to the lighters and i still get a lot of hate from who?… Wow. Mostly black people but i refuse to believe all around shameful..so before you say imply something along the lines of “lightskins make colorism all about themselves” Actually reread wtf you just stated cuz colorism applies to many and ANYONE. She as a child FELT THAT WAY too. She is describing from her child point of view and i face the SAME THOUGHTS. I use to purposely stay out in 110° sun cuz ppl said i didnt look like my mom, mg cousin didnt make me feel included. I know what she felt. So you sing ur a-s down cuz people like you are why the world is so stupid and shallow minded.

        Few typos but I am hoping you are at least a highschool graduate to comprehend a message from someone who faced hate from all sides.

        I don’t care about your lifelong sob story. First, I am a light-skinned woman. You’re trying to question my intelligence but you don’t even know what colorism means.

        Colorism, as defined by the Oxford Dictionary, is the following:

        *Prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.

        Light skinned people can never be victims of colorism. The fact that you nor Tip understand this is due to your lack of reading and understanding. And you definitely don’t want me to pull out the statistics that show light-skinned people receive all kinds of privileges dark-skinned people do not. You need to take your anger to the proper person, a therapist, not me. As I correctly stated, I can’t stand when light-skinned women make colorism about themselves. Tip should have sat this one out. She will always be more privileged than darker-skinned people. Thank goodness not all of us light-skinned people are against reading and understanding when an issue isn’t about us.

        Yes, thank you for being the typical mixed person to tell us that it’s mixed people who are the real victims of colorism. Smdh.

        You’re the one who’s ignorant. Colorism is about the prejudices that dark skinned people face in their communities. You don’t get to take a term and make it what you want it to be because you’re still hurting from your childhood. Dark skinned people don’t have to worry about just not fitting in as a kid. Their struggles will last for a lifetime. Biracial, multiracial, and light skinned people get to become adults and see that the world prefers them over dark skinned people. Don’t get on here and play stupid. Well, I do hope you’re playing.

    She didn’t make colorism about herself, she shared her experience, and what’s ignorant is to think that because someone is light skinned they don’t experience colorism as well

    • Liz

      March 19, 2020 at 8:06 pm

      I see you also don’t know what colorism means. As the Oxford Dictionary states:

      *Prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.

      Light skinned people do not experience colorism. We will always have more privileges than dark skinned people. Statistics back this up all across the board.

    • Shannon

      Oh she absolutely made colorism about herself because she has never experienced colorism. Colorism is about the prejudices that dark skinned people face in their communities. Her experiences were not colorism. So her talking about being light skinned and wanting her hair to be nappy and fitting in with her dark skinned cousins isn’t relevant to the topic of actual colorism. It was two minutes of ignorance that no one needed. She should have spared all of us.

    Tip sounds ignorant here and she sounded ignorant in the clip. And I see her apology isn’t genuine because she’s all up and down the comments calling dark skinned women nappy headed and cursing them out for telling her that she’s still not getting it. Colorism is not about light skinned or mixed people feeling left out. Like stop it. Colorism is about the prejudices that darker skinned people face in their own community.

    I think it’s safe to say a lot of people don’t know what colorism is.

    • Shannon

      March 21, 2020 at 1:42 pm

      Oh they know. They just pretend to not know because they need to make it about themselves.

    As long as you love yourself as a person that’s all that matter. Who cares what other people think?

    Tip is just using a serious topic like colorism to humblebrag and that’s what a lot of tone-deaf light-skinned and biracial women do. To sit on TV and say you wished you were dark-skinned and had dry, nappy, hair so you could fit in with your cousins…Girl what? And then she gets on IG and says oh they wanted to beat me up because I have pretty hair. So I had to beat them up. Girl again, WHAT? She really has no idea what colorism is. And she also believes in the most ignorant stereotypes about black women while claiming to be one. Yeah, eww. Colorism is about how DARK SKINNED people are looked at as inferior in the black community. It wasn’t a light-skinned doll that little black girl called ugly and violent in that colorism study they did years ago. It was a DARK SKINNED DOLL. Stop playing like y’all don’t know what this is about. It’s annoying. And this ain’t even an apology. She stood firm on her ignorance.

    Miami Tip is cringe and tryna gaslight what colorism is. She is saying when she was younger she thought what it took to be black was to have “nappy” hair and blah blah and she always to be like her darker skinned cousins 🙄. I’m rolling my eyes so hard at that comment, yet here she is, wearing straight a-s blonde wigs, talking about on IG she can be any race she wants 😭 which is to be white. She’s such a dumb b-tch lol, and for anyone who really agrees with this, your also an idiot.

    I’m Mexican and Unfortunately, I know about colorism to well! It exists among all ethnicities/races! I’m not even that dark, But I’m not light either. Mexicans have alot of Spaniard blood in them, So alot of them have colored eyes with fair hair and fair skin. This is the case amongst My mom’s family. I have always been treated differently by my own family because I’m a few shades darker. Growing up, my mom would say that my skin tone made me look dirty, I was always told how ugly i was because I was a darker shade of brown, They called me prieta which means dark girl. Colorism is a b-tch and I was offended by what TIP said. If you are light, Youve got it made according to most & You are automatically attractive. It sucks to be constantly judged based on the shade of your skin tone, Especially when you’re darker. I can’t help it if the sun loves me more than most and Can’t stop kissing me 🌞☀️

      Excellent comment. I was just telling someone on here that colorism happens in every ethic group. Lighter is always seen as better and it’s so messed up.

    Years ago colorism was about what dark people went through, this is a different time and many nationalities go through all types of colorism. Light skins just as much as dark skins or should I say mixed people go through alot because they don’t know where they fit in. The definition of colorism needs to be updated because not only dark people experience it. It depends on who you’re around, where you live, etc..etc. To say someone doesn’t experience colorism because they’re light skin is dumb. You can’t blame the light skin person because other people would rather pick them than a dark skin person. You never know what light skin people have to go through just because you think they have it better than dark skin people. It’s sad this is 2020 and colorism is still a thing. With all the mixed nationalities why are we still seeing that as a problem. I know a lady that has mixed children and her daughter and one of her son’s has real thick hair and the other son has soft curly hair…..2 are more dark skin tone and one is fair skin, I’m sure they go through things as kids because of this. It’s people like some of you that want to believe that only dark colored people go through things. Once you can see that many people go through colorism, the better it can become to get a handle on. And it’s not the lighter skin people that makes it hard for dark skin women, it’s the people that y’all want to work for or want to be around. Everyone isn’t the same when it comes to dark skin woman, look at Hollywood. I see many dark skin woman doing big things so get out your feelings and stop with the light verses dark plight and pull your sisters up and place that crown atop her head and keep pushing.

      Your comment is trash. I’m multiracial and I’m grateful that I don’t think like this. The definition of colorism does not need to be changed and it never will be because there are no stats that show light skinned, biracial, and multiracial people go through as much colorism as dark skinned people. People like yourself think so little of dark skinned people that you won’t let them have anything by themselves. Then you don’t realize that this is what they are talking about. Why do light skinned people need to take over a term that was created to highlight what dark skinned people go through? What’s next? White people should become the face of oppression in the US because some black people were mean to them?

      And your comment here:

      “You can’t blame the light skin person because other people would rather pick them than a dark skin person.”

      Umm, really? So you know that people with lighter skin have privileges like this but you still think they go through just as much as dark skinned people?

      It’s absurd that you think a couple of dark skinned women finally getting a couple of lead roles in Hollywood means colorism is over and dark skinned people need to “get out of their feelings.” You actually sound like a colorist. The superficial things light skinned, biracial, and multiracial people go through will never compare to the actual colorism dark skinned people deal with in every ethnicity. Thank God I’m the kind of person who doesn’t have to make everything about me.

      You’re delusional. The definition of colorism is not changing for you. People with lighter skin tones will always have privileges dark skinned people will never have. The fact that you tried to use Hollywood as some symbol of progression is laughable. Meanwhile, dark skinned actresses are still losing major roles overwhelmingly to biracial actresses. And biracial women have overtaken the natural hair movement because companies think they have the better “look” to market their products. Stop playing on here.

    I believe everyone just wants to be mad at something. Although she is a grown woman she is speaking from HER CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES. How can anyone tell her she is wrong for feeling that way. We all know chlidr n can be cruel to other kids, especially if they were different n any way. Y’all need TO STOP BASHING HER FOR HER FEELINGS!!! NOT UR EXPERIENCE THEN GREAT!!!

    • Shannon

      Tip is rightfully getting called out. No one has to sit up here and watch her complain about wishing she had nappy hair, could act more ghetto, and be loved even though she has “curly, pretty hair.” Those of us with working brains know she’s just humble bragging. And she needs to stop. She should just stick to wanting to become an honorary member of the Kardashian family and let the rest of us handle the conversation of actual colorism.
