Beyonce’s dad reckons her music career has been boosted by her being a light skinned black woman.
He said this in an interview where he discussed his book Racism: From the Eyes of a Child.
He talks about his experiences of race growing up in the deep South and admits he thought his former wife and mum to Beyonce Tina Knowles Lawson was white when he first met her.
Mathew, who managed Beyonce’s career until 2011, was asked how colourism affects aspiring artists when they are looking for mainstream acceptance.
