Mulatto has been rising up the ranks of the hip hop world. She was always seen as a talent on Jermaine Dupri’s reality television show when she was a teenager. The rap name she chose of “Mulatto” has been controversial for years now.
The year 2020 has been a sensitive one in terms of racial issues and Mulatto has landed in some heat for where she stands on this. She was asked a few years ago about how she would like to be identified and told everyone that “like identifying with anything specific” but if she has to, she would say she’s “bi-racial, mulatto, I don’t like saying I’m white or Black.”
Mulatto being recently attacked for stealing wigs before her current fame has fans digging up her past.
Does she know how ignorant that sounds….?

The history of America and the 1 percent drop rule saw anyone with any black in them was considered to be black regardless of any other race they were also apart of. Mulatto has been taken to task for her “blackness”.
One person in particular said, “I never liked this bitch she wanna black so bad, hoe HUSHHHHHHH” about the rapper and, in response, Latto said: “I am black dumb ass bitch. Who gone ‘hush’ me???
I am black dumb ass bitch. Who gone “hush” me???

What About Tracee Ellis Ross? She identifies as a black woman as do all of her siblings Or what about Rihanna and Beyonce? They Too Are not genetically or culturally black and yet they still consider themselves black women. Does that count to

She explained a whole lot of nothing. A bunch of unintelligible gibberish that definitely doesn't make this ignorance justifiable. Thanks for taking time to share that mess, tho😏

She took back the name same way black people made the “n” word a term of endearment… what’s the real problem cause this shouldn’t be and it’s her name just one of the many named she goes buy when she didn’t have to conform and do that

Well she was 16 on that show and her first time on camera she may have been nervous. Smh we don’t know how mixed kids feel and she is very light I’m sure she was confused growing up.

It’s dangerous to call mixtures anything then what it truly is especially when the race war, in all honesty, is about eugenics.

The shade is tho most of us have European ancestry. We don’t summon them at the altar thooo 🤷🏾♂️😂.

That doesn’t make you white. Being white means having white skin, and if she is white she can stop saying the n word and speaking in Ebonics.

The touchy topic has moved some fans to even create videos on youtube about Mulatto’s latest social media statement. Do you agree with her backlash or is this more division among the black nation in the United States?
