Actress and Cocktails with Queens co-host LisaRaye McCoy explained her comments that she made last week in which she appeared to support the colorist comments made by a New York radio host. McCoy says she believed Rob Lederman was just sharing “an opinion” when he compared Black women to levels of toasted bread on his radio show. The opinion got him suspended from his job.
“You don’t got a preference?” McCoy asked her co-hosts Claudia Jordan and Syleena Johnson. “How [do] you say it? ‘I like mocha chocolate opposed to cappuccino?’”
“I was commenting on his preference to Black women, that’s what I was talking about,” McCoy said. “You know, my grandbaby is brown-skinned, so by no means would I want my grandbaby to think her grandmother is a colorist. I know what my preference is. And I can’t stand by someone that doesn’t — that’s a racist — and I don’t know that about them. I can’t even comment on that, I don’t even know.”
