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

Entertainment

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.”
