Amber Rose Gets Shockingly Real About Race

"With me, I was never black enough, I was never white enough."

Amber Rose is one public figure whose race has been constantly debated. Just in case you're still wondering, Muva Rose is Black, Portuguese, Irish, and, Italian; she cleared everything up last year to put an end to all the speculation, but now she's opening up about what it was like growing up biracial, Radio.com reports.

"With me, I was never black enough, I was never white enough," Rose said during a recent episode of her podcast, Loveline With Amber Rose. "I would be around white friends in Philly and they would say black jokes or be like 'Yo, we're going to f*k them n-words up around the corner' and I'm like 'What?' They didn't know because I'm so light like my dad."

"It's crazy and I've seen it from both sides actually growing up although I always felt like black people were more accepting to everyone even though America's history probably taught them not to be," she continued. "Every black person that I grew up with was very accepting, even the bars I used to go to that would have white guys that would come in and do karaoke but if you see a black guy going to an Irish bar, it's a f*cking problem. It's crazy."
