Roommates, a few weeks ago, the Internet collectively dragged Keke Wyatt for her comments stating that “Black people are not the only ones who’ve been oppressed”—fast forward and she has changed her tuned a bit. Keke recently issued an apology for her comments that most felt were highly insensitive, during a recent interview.
During an appearance on the FOX Soul talk show, “Cocktails with Queens,” Keke Wyatt teared up when she apologized for her previous comments. “I just want to start out by saying that I am truly sorry for the way I spoke and what I said. I feel like it could have come off way better. At the end of the day, I am a Black woman. Period,” said Wyatt. “I am proud to be a Black woman. Period.”
Keke continued, adding that she felt she was baited by the hosts who interviewed her into making her controversial comments:
“At that point, I felt attacked, but of course, everything isn’t always shown like it should be, but that’s okay. At the end of the day, I represented myself, my people, my culture, my God, my family in a horrible manner. I know better.
I love who I am as a woman. I don’t feel like I should have to explain myself. I’m doing my best. I just want to learn more about everything. There has never been a role that has been clear for biracial people. It’s like you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t. But at the same time, I know who I am as a woman and I identify myself as a Black woman.”
She ended her apology, stating “I want my sisters to know that I love them. And I am sorry down to my damn bone marrow if I hurt. I did not mean to diminish our culture at all.”
