After establishing the definition of colorism, Candiace Dillard Bassett spoke on how she, as a Black woman with a deeper skin tone, is quick to be slammed as the “first one to be emotional” when she pops off while Robyn Dixon has been able to get away with similarly-reactive behaviors.

In response, Gizelle hops into the conversation and expresses her confusion at Candace’s point.

“How are you connecting the two?…What does you being emotional have to do with skin color?”

She swiftly adds, “I just want to understand.”

Karen Huger then breaks down how Candiace feels as though “she’s judged more harshly” on account of “the pigmentation of her skin.”

Ashley Darby and Mia Thornton then proceed to express their sentiments, with the former acknowledging how the light-skinned cast members “get preferential treatment.”

“Inherently, for me, Gizelle, Robyn, Mia, we get preferential treatment. I understand that—I acknowledge the privilege as a light-skinned woman.”

After the discussion, Gizelle remarked, “We went high, now let’s get to low.”

Carlos King Slams Gizelle: ‘How Disrespectful Was That To Your Ancestors?’

Once the episode aired, viewers took to Twitter and expressed that they felt as though self-proclaimed “Green-Eyed Bandit” was a bit too apathetic during the colorism segment.

Carlos King also shared his critiques in a YouTube video, and the former The Real Housewives of Atlanta producer didn’t hold back!

In a clip shared to social media, Carlos said he was “very angry” and “disappointed” over how brief the colorism segment was.

“What I saw on display on that stage tonight is bulls**t. How dare you sit up here and give a topic of colorism 2 minutes to a cast full of Black women.”

Later during his video, he honed in on Gizelle’s decorum during the conversation.

“I was so disgusted, disappointed, and Gizelle, how dare you say, ‘Okay, finally, we can move on.’ You are the [daughter] of a civil rights activist.”

He then went on to ask, “How disrespectful, Gizelle, was that to your ancestors?”
