Usually when you hear about the ever fertile KeKe Wyatt it’s generally because she’s popping out yet another child, but this time, she’s making headlines for her mouth, and it ain’t for singing.
Keke Wyatt is making headlines for some comments she made on Bigo while have a heated discussion with former ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Milan Christopher. She told Milan that biracial people have been oppressed by both Black and white people. In clips from the chaotic conversation, Wyatt made her feelings known, loud and clear. The clip began with Milan mentioning how Black people have been “segregated, persecuted, hunted down, killed, stolen from, and humiliated.” Wyatt, who didn’t seem to be taking the man’s words seriously, interrupted him to let him know that those experiences weren’t exclusive to the Black community.
“– and so have Mexican, and so have other people honey” the singer interjected. “Black people are not the only ones that have gone through that.” Things escalated further when in another portion of the clip, Wyatt is heard yelling at the screen, “You have to understand Black people are not the only people that have been oppressed. They are not the only ones, my n*gga. Jewish people have been oppressed, okay. I can keep going. I’m biracial d*ammit! We f*ckin oppressed.”
“Black people done made us feel like sh*t, white people done made us feel like sh*t,” she continued. “You don’t know that life. You don’t know that. So if you want me to be a ignorant a*s n*gga, I will tonight. I don’t want to go there. I think you need to understand sugar, there’s more to life than just being Black, baby.”
She added, “I’m a very nice person but when you bring the n*gga out of me honey it come out. But I come out as Shaquita, okay.”
Even though she’s not wrong in saying biracial people can and have experienced oppression, from what I saw of the conversation, Milan wasn’t saying biracial people hadn’t or that anyone else for that matter had not been ill-treated. While it’s confusing why Wyatt felt she needed to go in the way that she did, no matter what her reasoning was, she didn’t have to take away from the experiences mentioned that Black people have faced just to say biracial people have experienced oppression too. The way it came across, it felt like she was downplaying the burdensome things Black people have gone through, just because other marginalized groups have experienced them as well. Peep the clip as well as some of the social media response below and let us know what you think?
Did Keke Wyatt really get online & insinuated that Black ppl have oppressed her bc she’s Bi-racial??
Last time I checked you needed power to oppress, and with her being a lightskin biracial woman, the power of colorism is definitely in her favor.

Oh wow, Not Keke Wyatt the bi racial colorist yet again embarrassing herself on Bigo! There’s no negating that other groups of people have been oppressed but Black people have been oppressed way more & still are systematically at higher level than most. So why try to argue that? pic.twitter.com/7NKlMBFSct

I’m good on keke Wyatt. She was a Fav of mine but I swear ppl hate to see black ppl stand up for black ppl. It’s so sad. Like don’t compare black ppl to any other race because it’s not the same AT ALL. I need to get more educated because that shit grinds my gears.
