Alfonso Ribeiro Says He Does Not Fit Into The Black Community Due To His Interracial Marriage: I’m In My Own Little World With Support From Almost No One

Alfonso Ribeiro has opened up about feeling like an outsider with the Black community.

Atlanta Black Star recently published an interview they conducted with Alfonso Ribeiro, who’s most known for playing Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In his interview, the actor spoke on how he feels judged by and ousted from the Black community because he is married to a white woman, Angela Ribeiro. Alfonso Ribeiro stated:

“I am in a mixed relationship. And I get things and looks and comments constantly. And I find it very interesting because you see a lot of things on social media where people say things and people have positions and perspectives. And it’s not easy to make that choice, because you’re not at home in any home. I’m never going to be white and I’m never going to be fully supported in the Black house. So I’m in my own little world with support from almost no one, to be in love with someone I’ve fallen in love with. How does that make sense? It doesn’t.”

Alfonso Ribeiro continued, stating that everyone should have the right to live in the world they deem appropriate.

“I will support any person that wants to live in a world that they want to live in. I’ll support a racist person to live in a world that they want to live in. They don’t have to be around me. But if that’s the world that they want to live in, they should have a right to live in that world. I live in a mixed world. I love in a mixed world. I live in a Black world, and I love in that world. I feel everyone should be supported.”

Additionally, he proceeded to explain that he had to actually purchase tickets to attend the BET Awards despite “[being] in the game forever.” In the context of his interview, it appears as though Alfonso Ribeiro was speculating he wasn’t given free tickets because of his image in the Black community. He said:

“I laugh at the fact that I am a mainstream television host, been in the game forever and I could purchase tickets to go to the BET Awards.”

“So it is what it is. I’m not going to purchase the ticket, but I’m also not going to … I guess I’m doing it now by putting them on front street. But at the end of the day, if that’s the view they take, then that’s the view they take. I can’t change their mind. All I can do is live my life and be me and be the best version of me. And continue to love everybody equally, and let it fall where it falls.”

Chris Brown Accused of Colorism Again By Woman in Viral Tik Tok

Chris Brown is in the hot seat again. The 32-year-old singer has been accused of colorism before, most notably when Love & Hip Hop star, Tokyo Vanity confronted him about colorist lyrics and not allowing dark skin women in his section at an LA club.

This time a Tik Tok user who goes by @ashlyepic posted a Tik Tok where she writes on the video, 

“When Bhris Breezy told Me I was too dark to get Into his party” 

Tik tok:

@ashlyepicIdk why I still like him ? I must like abuse ????? #fyp? #SHEINcares #PerfectMarcJacobs #foryou #foryoupage? Use – .

 Chris Brown has had some questionable lyrics in his songs like his 2019 track, Need A Stack. The singer said,

“Only wanna f*** the black b****es with the nice hair” 

*YOUTUBE VIDEO OF SONG*

That was the lyric that started the short-lived social media beef between him and Tokyo Vanity. 

Some Tik Tok commentators don’t believe the Tik Tok creator, Ashley, is telling the truth because they don’t think she’s dark skin or because they think she’s lying for clout. But there are some users that do believe her and she thanked them for supporting her. 

 

 


She denied all the lying allegations and said that posting the video was a part of her coping mechanism. She pinned a comment at the top of the video saying,

“Guys I’m a real victim, my caption is basically my coping mechanism.”

Chris Brown has not responded or released a statement addressing the video as of now.

What do you think about the accusations of Chris Brown? Let us know down below.

Devine also spoke about her experience working with the late Gregory Hines, who was singer, dancer, and actor. As co-stars she said,

“Gregory was so wonderful in so many ways. He was my leading man in Waiting To Exhale and he was the only man smart enough on my first day of shooting to have roses everywhere for me, and I always brag on him because nobody else did that.” 

She continued saying,

“I remember him telling me, ‘Now as soon as this movie is over you have to lose all the weight to move into the next category.’ I don’t know category that was because I never lost the weight like he talked about.” 

The Family Reunion star said that Waiting To Exhale changed her life after the movie’s release. She said,

“All of a sudden we were like the most popular people around. I mean people would just grab you. I’ve never been so scared to go outside.”
