sweetie denies participating in colorism after an old conversation she had Shortage resurfaced – pointing out that… yes, she controlled him and defended black women.
This IG Live convo between the two rappers went off sometime last year, and for whatever reason… it resurfaced on social media this weekend, with people criticizing both her and the Bay Area legend for many who were seen as biracial black people against those who are 100% black.
In the clip, you can hear Short say that he likes biracial women… and that he never fell in love with a woman who wasn’t mixed. Saweetie — at that point in the convo — just took it in, without any real pushback in the moment…
TS goes on to say that biracial babies are also the most beautiful, at least for him, and no biracial baby can be ugly. While he didn’t necessarily say this… the assumption is that other babies of one race or ethnicity might not be so cute in his eyes.
It’s worth noting… the reason they started talking about this is because Saweetie is half black/half Filipino herself — and she’s also from NorCal, which they say is quite diverse, especially among the Asian community.
Despite that context, some felt Saweetie’s response here — at this particular moment — was less than supportive of black women, and many even call it anti-black…which she apparently perpetuated by not speaking out against Short. But she did… only later.
Saweetie posted another clip from that same IG chat, and sure enough…she notes to Too Short that black women are beautiful babies and indeed make beautiful babies too.
She also posted a Q&A she once did with fans where someone asked her if she thought dark-skinned women can be beautiful… and she replied: They know they are.
