Mathew Knowles Only Pursued Tina Because He Thought She Was White!

mathew tina knowles colorism white

Mathew Knowles, Beyonce’s daddy, sat down with Ebony to discuss his new book, colorism, and how he initially thought his ex-wife Tina was a white woman!


How have you and your family experienced colorism?

“When I was growing up, my mother used to say, ‘Don’t ever bring no nappy-head Black girl to my house.’ In the deep South in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, the shade of your Blackness was considered important. So I, unfortunately, grew up hearing that message. I have a chapter in the book that talks about eroticized rage. I talk about going to therapy and sharing – one day I had a breakthrough – that I used to date mainly White women or very high-complexion Black women that looked White. I actually thought when I met Tina, my former wife, that she was white. Later I found out that she wasn’t, and she was actually very much in-tune with her Blackness. I had been conditioned from childhood. Within eroticized rage, there was actual rage in me as a Black man, and I saw the White female as a way, subconsciously, of getting even or getting back. There are a lot of Black men of my era that are not aware of this thing.”


After the intense dragging Mathew and the publication received, Ebony pulled the article from their website.


      • He absolutely is, Quincy Jones spoke of similar things in his GQ interview if you read its entirety. That era of men really thought like this

  1. My ex husband is a Louisiana Creole. Before he met me he wouldn’t date brown skin women. He was very light skinned and aware of his blackness but had a preference for light skin but had no interest in white women. My skin is brown and he became attracted to me.. He remarried another brown skinned woman. Whatever your conditioning, you can change it unless you’re a coon. There is no hope for the coon.

  2. Yall need to read the entire interview. He made a lot of valid points. This subject is still veey taboo in the blk community, but colorism is alive and well on 2018.

    • Ha! So true. I just said the very same thing, didn’t know you wrote this until I posted my comment.

  3. Piss yellow ass demons hate truth. Gtfo the black community you mutt breed agents and infiltrators. Let us grow stop blocking our growth you demons.

  4. The reason why colorism is alive is because of idiots like him that fan the embers to get a fire going. There are no more house and field negroes these days, as everyone has a chance to live up to their full potential. Why talk publicly about what happened to you years ago when it makes you look stupid? Anybody that looks at Tina once can tell she’s black. With his wack logic, he probably bypassed a good dark skinned woman that would’ve been a perfect match.

  5. I wonder if his mother ever told him about don’t bring a witch home did she tell about that?

  6. He just exposed the entire Interracial Agenda in the Sports Arena… “Eroticized Rage” = Nuccas with mental illnesses trying to use neanderthal cooch as a cure.

  7. Tina Knowles IS white… Her complexion might be toasted and she may be too dark to be considered a Melungeon, but she hails from a French family with the last name Beyincé (which is where I’m guessing Beyonce gets her name).
    *Seed of the father / apple seeds make apple trees.

  8. And I can only imagine what his family looks like probably black as tar talking bout some don’t bring a black woman home. It’s sad how other cultures actually want to keep their bloodline only within their race and you got some of these dumb ass coons that want to breed outside of their race. I have nothing against interracial couples but when u talk down on your race that’s a issue

    • @anonymous 10:34 – An indigenous gene code is supposed to produce people BLACK AS TAR! Let’s cancel deceptions and set the record straight. The PRIME BASE DNA on this planet is NOT recessive-coded.

      You have been lied to ALL of your life. Those of you whose DNA has been fractionalized with APE HYBRID degenerative Type A/B/AB Caucasoid DNA demonstrate your unfortunate genetic incompetence in your expressions of contempt toward non-recessive, AUTOCHTHON, Type O Blacks. DNA and blood types don’t lie. AfRAkan FACTS will prevail!

  9. Colorism has been perpetuated within the black and latino communities since Colonialism. The “black is taboo” mentality we have inherited from our slave masters. And it’s VERY bad and extreme in the latin community. Just as Amare La Negra. Spanish fathers and mothers say the same nonsense to their daughters and sons, don’t bring no “Moreno” or “morena” to my house. It instills self hatred and subconsciously has us wanting to emulate the white, more fair skinned race. This is all part of the brainwashing.

      • @anonymous 13:52 – The preference of depigmentation over pigmentation is a matter of gene coding and social conditioning. It makes sense that straight-haired recessive-gene Caucasoids in India and throughout Asia would prefer RECESSIVE GENETIC TRAITS (ie. depigmentation).

  10. He knew good and dam well she was a BW. As soon as she opened her mouth to speak, he heard what came out. We don’t need this book. The subject has been explored with other books from the 60s. Mr. Destiny please tell everyone if your book will divulge family secrets – that’s all we are really interested in – not your racial truth for the YT public’s curiosity.

  11. Lightskin people are not pure they are agents in the community to keep up back. Kick them out! They are agents! They are white skinned fake black people. Get these maggots out!


  13. I’m glad I never had that problem.I like dark, brown, and light skin girls

  14. Lots of light skinned men and women stand and have stood for black power/unity and justice so it’s not about them being agents. Babies who grow into adults have NO control over how they got/get here!

  15. I feel Highly Melanated men are not allowed to talk about their issues for fear being “dragged”. Where is it safe for a Melanated Man to say he just wants to (in Non Sexual way) lay his head on the Bosom (The Milk) he missed out on and be held or hugged or just wants to cryout on the Internet. Mr Knowles lives in a world now runned by People with Albinism and one of their many mental illnesses is Projection. They Envy Dark Skin and get you to hate it. While they not so secretly intentionally burn their skin to get Darker Skin. He made a baby with a Brown Skinned lady (though I do not condone they way he went about it)can now go after what he really is attracted to. He may have punished his ex wife subconsciously by betraying her because he was “forced” to choose her over his real attraction. A
    Deep Brown Skinned guy I knew did like Brown Skinned women but chose to be with a Caucasian Albino girl with yellow hair and clear colored eyes because 1) his mother tortured him and his sister so she didn’t remind him of that trauma 2) he said they were less complicated . I understood his fear to be with a women who looks like him. There are plenty more reason why this happens.
    Can we listen to Men and their many different problems too.. (Suicides ..Feelings of Powerlessness.. Fear of showing Emotions..Police Targeted.. cetera ) the way we want them to listen us.

      When I read the full excerpt, I thought the same thing.

      • Hi Candice. Thank you for your reply. Is there a link to the full interview? I haven’t been able to find it..

  16. A country Coon born to a mama coonette… don’t get any more tragic than that!

  17. To white people, you’re either black or you’re not. There’s no in-between. However, we are the ones who rag on someone for being too black or too light. The brown bag test is alive and well in “black” America.

  18. This dude is fishing for daps. Is he trying to make another Destiny’s Child?

    This discussion isn’t productive. Certain things are obvious. These are different times.

    And this discussion should not be in mass media.

  19. For the record, I don’t discriminate. I date high yellow (chinese), caramel (chinese), brown (Samoan and Tongan), and dark skin (Fijian and PNG). What…? ctfu
