Karrine “Superhead” Steffans Says She’s Not An African American
Superhead recently gave some insight on her Caribbean background on KMEL Radio and explains why she doesn’t consider herself African American.
The attention slore says she raises her 15-year-old son the same way, because she doesn’t have any slavery in her family lineage.
And I think people forget, I’m an islander. I’m not African American. I don’t have like African American struggles. I just don’t. I don’t have the same history. So, and I’m not even tryna be facetious…There’s a serious mind state that comes with being black in America. And being a black American. And the history that comes with that. And all things that are passed down from generation to generation…Shame. Shame sexually. Sexually shaming. Shame on the female gender. Shame just all kinds of shame. And abuse. And belittling and all those things that come from post-slavery
I don’t have slavery in my family so and a lot of islanders don’t, so our mind state is different. We see things different and we’re not ashamed of our bodies. We have Carnival for Christ’s sake….That’s how we live our lives. We go to the beach; we swim naked. It’s just different. Island girls just do it better and that’s just a fact.
What do you think about Superhead’s comments?
