Kash Doll Doesn't Believe In Colorism Because She Hasn't Experienced It Yet

Kash Doll has a major difference in opinion from some other women rappers.

To most rap fans with eyes and ears, sexism is an ongoing issue within the rap community. It's been well documented both on wax and in headlines. But is colorism? Detroit-bred rapper Kash Doll doesn't necessarily think so, at least not within the world of women in hip-hop.

Over the weekend, during which several femcees were putting on for hip-hop at Rolling Loud Festival in Oakland, the discussion of discrimination against dark-skinned women in rap. While rappers like Bianca Bonnie and Sukihana felt that women of darker hues have to work twice as hard, the likes of Stunna Girl, Kold Killa and Kash Doll disagreed.

Kash Doll's view was that in her mind, colorism doesn't exist because she hasn't experienced it firsthand, and would rather not put any energy into manifesting it in real life. “I don’t believe in colorism I’m sorry…or maybe I haven’t ran into that problem yet,” she wrote on Instagram. “Slavery been going on forever…we not new to that…but sitting around speaking it only gonna make it worse! I totally don’t even wanna speak it in the universe.”

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
