Recently a young and upcoming rapper named Kodak Black got on Instagram and said he didn’t like Black women.  His comments was in response to someone asking him if he like actress/singer KeKe Palmer. “Keke Palmer, she straight. I’d bag her, but I don’t really like black girls like that, sorta, kinda,” he said.  Initially, people thought he was talking about all Black women and that he preferred dating outside his race. However he clarified his comments and said he was just talking about dark skinned Black women.  “I love black African-American women; it’s just not my forte to deal with a dark-skin woman. I prefer them to have a lighter complexion than me.” Kodak said in a separate post. He hashtag it with “my preference” and “fuck you.”
