Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles in an interview with Ebony said Beyonce will not have been as popular as she is now if she were dark skinned.
While speaking on his book “Racism From The Eyes Of A Child,” Matthew talked about race and how black women were still not given the same platform as other saying;
“When it comes to Black females, who are the people who get their music played on pop radio? Mariah Carey, Rihanna, the female rapper Nicki Minaj. my kids.”
He also admitted he even thought Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles was white when they first met.
