Black Female Activist Calls for Kendrick Lamar Boycott Because His Fianceé is Light Skinned

Avatar • Apr 9, 2015

After a successful album release, rapper Kendrick Lamar announced the engagement to his long term girlfriend and high school sweetheart Whitney Alford. All should’ve been well and good with this news but one woman in particular was not pleased. Activist Rashida Marie Strober who is also manager of the “Dark Skin is Beautiful” campaign called for a boycott of Lamar’s music after learning of his engagement.

 

well, well, well would you looky here! ANOTHER FAKE CONSCIOUS MUTHER FUKER EXPOSED. I will never support him nor his music with one dime of my money and encourage all dark skinned women not to either!

Posted by The Dark Skin Activist Rashida Strober on Friday, April 3, 2015

 

Strober called for the boycott based solely on the color of Alford’s skin, as if to say anything progressive Lamar has done up to this point was now deemed null and void. Welp. There’s one less Waterford crystal purchased off the wedding registry. But we don’t think Strober’s presence would be missed had she been invited to witness the nuptials of the happy couple.

The interesting thing is that Kendrick has been with Whitney since high school, long long before he was famous. MediaTakeout.com located this old pic of the couple. He’s now 27, so it’s been a decade.

13917822098faec349c9907

And in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, Kendrick discussed Whitney’s long term presence in his life.

Yeah, yeah [we definitely got engaged]. I’m loyal to the soil. At the end of the day, you wanna always have real people around you, period. Whether it’s male or female. And everybody that’s been around me, they’ve been around me since day one, and I can’t change that. I don’t change for nobody. I can’t run from that. I always show respect when respect’s been given, and people that’s been by your side, you’re suppose to honor that. And that’s how you stand up. Running around it and not acknowledging it is trivial.

What are your thoughts?

Maybe she’s just doing this to get her name out there more or maybe she’s truly troubled. Either way, bless her heart.

Kudos to the newly engaged couple for making it work through the transition to adulthood and into fame.

I don’t see an issue with him marrying who he wants to marry especially his high school sweetheart. I understand where the woman is coming from and how she was treated growing and the negativity she may still face today but coming after Kendrick Lamar won’t change anything. If he had left his high school sweetheart and decided to marry someone else then someone would’ve had something to say about that. You can’t please everybody and we shouldn’t try to. Yes there are Black men who purposely choose to date outside of their race because of their negative feelings towards Black… Read more »

I checked out her ‘Facebook’ page. Girlie is on some serious ish. She’s actually asking for donations to help ‘equalize’ the beauty of dark skinned women world wide. What’s she going to do with the money? Invest in a bunch of tanning booths? She sounds like those white supremists who live in Idaho or Wyoming, drop out of school and then blame Blacks, Latinos, Jews and everybody else for them not being able to find a job.

This “dark skinned activist” is nuts. However the issue is not Kendrick and his wife. Many are taking note of the fact that Kendrick put himself out that there as a big advocate for dark skinned women. But his real life does not exemplify this by being with a woman that can easily pass for racially ambiguous. Should he leave her? No. Is there anything wrong with her? No. But the question that many ask is: did he cater to the black dark skinned audience just to sell records? Think of a man who speaks on behalf of big girls,… Read more »

Great point. The entertainment industries sell images. An image which elevates dark skinned women is as a commodified image just like any other. If KL makes a concerted effort to showcase darker skinned women in his videos (and I believe Trey Songz claims to do the same) it doesn’t really mean that he would be willing to date a dark skinned woman himself or has a genuine appreciation for a dark skinned woman’s beauty. He’s selling a product just like Beyonce, Justin Beiber, or any other pop star. This is his business and as I understand it, his image is… Read more »

This has nothing to do with policing anybody.

Use us to further your personal agenda then kick us to the curb when mission is accomplished. Again I’m not saying this applies specifically to Kendrick. But to deny that this goes on would make one dishonest. At least the gays and the feminists (the white ones anyway) have tangible things to show for their supportive non-participants.

As a very light-skinned woman, I must say that I am extremely surprised at the lack of support for the issue this woman is trying to bring to the attention of the masses. While I understand that no one has a right to police anyone else’s bedroom, the reality is that there is an overwhelming number of black actors and athletes who chose light skinned black women, white women and women from other races over dark-skinned women, Why is this reality being denied?

I think the point is to silence divergent view points and dissension among the ranks with this whole “at the end of the day, we’re all black” diatribe. That way, colorism never gets addressed in any substantive way. I think the most psychologically healthy thing that a woman can do is realize that outer beauty in this world is largely constructed in the image on the powerful and is therefore a load of… inner beauty and leading a healthy life (mind body soul) is way more valuable.

Kendrick may very well love him some dark skinned women, as he states in his lyrics. But the woman he loves and gave his heart to has a fairer skin complexion. So what? He proposed to the woman who has been rocking with him since the very beginning- light skin, dark skin, purple skin… who the hell cares?

And if there was not an unrelenting attack against dark skinned women, often perpetuated by light skinned women and their dark skinned male supporters, would she be “just another dark girl with serious complex issues”?

It’s sad that people actually believe things like that when the fact of the matter is if two people walked into a racist environment against blacks, one of darker complexion, and the other being lighter, they will both be treated terrible, one may say two completely different things to either one but that does not mean that one… Read more »

Basically, OP is saying skin color SHOULDN’T matter and, once the slave mentality is abandoned, it won’t.

You cannot be racist towards your own. Racism was created by Europeans who devised a system of oppression in order to elevate themselves, their race, whilst robbing the oppressed of economics, identity and culture. I do agree that Rashida is ignorant and discriminating against a black female who has a different complexion as she does, this happens a lot. All she is doing is playing in the hands of the original oppressors who set about to divide us in the first place.

You very much can be racist with your own. Racism is the ideal that one particular race is superior to the other. While both are Black, there are carrying subtypes in that race. Much like those of varying White coloration.

This lady is a blatant bigot, however funny thing is had it been anyone of any other color there would be national headlines…

This has to be by far the dumbest boycott I have read this year. Black is beautiful, so that means we have to discriminate against those who are lighter than us? So that means because I love being Black that I shouldn’t love my very fair skin children? Some people really need to hone in on their critical thinking skills. This “activist” needs therapy, Jesus/Zeus/Allah, and a reality check.

In this case it’s racism because she’s hating against Lamar’s fiance for having non-black (probably white) blood in her, reflected by her lighter skin tone. It would be the same as some Neo-Nazi scumbag hating against a mixed white/black person. It would be racism in that case too.

Silly “controversy” (although it seems this lady is mostly alone in her outrage). He’s a hip hop artist who’s been committed to one person since they were teenagers and before he was famous. That’s a good thing isn’t it? I don’t really see how dating a woman who doesn’t have dark skin makes him a bad person. The foul language and irrational reaction make me think we should actually just leave this “activist” (a title which is INCREDIBLY overused these days) to herself and move along.

Can we all collectively agree to stop wasting our time by giving these people attention? It’s one person, one woman (i’m side-eyeing the use of the term “female) with an opinion. Not all opinions are worthy of one’s attention.

Yes! Unfortunately these types of articles are click and comment bait…the business side of things. I’m glad the general consensus in these comments is that we as black women of all hues are sick of the colorism b.s.

This is frigging RIDICULOUS. She’s trying to push off her own insecurities and low self esteem onto him! Girl, have SEVERAL seats. Making something out of nothing. They’ve been together since before he became famous. Is he supposed to drop a woman that was with him while he accomplished his dreams bc of her skin tone? Chile bye

I disagree with Rashida and I feel she’s being racist herself. Who’s to say he HAS to date dark skinned girl. Andy why stop supporting his music? How does his music affect his relationship? You can date who you want and still be “conscious”. People and their judgement kill me. Rashida, you seem unhappy girl.

I’ll repeat here what I said to one of my male friends about this Rashida chick: If we were having real productive conversations on how to deal with the ever present issues surrounding colorism, this Rashida girl’s negative message would be effectively drowned out. Yet, we only really talk about colorism when there’s some half-done documentary out. We have got to find new ways to make the issue relevant so that future generations don’t see dark skin or light skin as an issue.

This completely ridiculous. This woman needs to gather her life. Its not her fault that she wasn’t with dark skin. Neither is it his fault that he has fallen in love with her. She’s being completely IGNORANT!

Proof that black people are more racist than any other race… and this coming from a black man.

An idiot and a racist. It’s beautiful to see he values her love the same way he did before he achieved success. It’s not a story we often hear. I wish them all the best and I find their relationship admirable and romantic as hell.

Well damn, this is very disappointing. Granted the girl is “mixed” but who cares. She is not Rachel Dolezal! She actually still is a sistah. This looney needs to listen to track # 12 Complexion. Not to mention this been his girl for the past 10 years! She had first dibs & she is consistent, mo props. This is not a act of activism. My husband is very dark skin darken than Kendrick and I am what some would call light I call it “caramel” I am black on both sides. Nothing but love from our peers. I wish Kendrick… Read more »
