Mathew Knowles Writing New Book
Towards maybe the end of this year or the first of next year.
Fans can expect,
A lot of interviews. It won’t just be me talking.
The Destiny’s Child book will be his fourth. Earlier this month, he made headlines for some of the comments he made in his latest book, “Racism: From the Eyes of a Child”. In the book, he claimed that mainstream radio discriminates against black pop stars that have darker complexions.
In the memoir, he also said growing up, he struggled with his own color issues. He wrote that when he first met his now ex-wife, Tina Lawson, he thought that she was white.
I have a chapter in the book that talks about eroticized rage. I talk about going to therapy and sharing – one day I had a breakthrough – that I used to date mainly White women or very high-complexion Black women that looked White. I actually thought when I met Tina, my former wife, that she was white. Later I found out that she wasn’t, and she was actually very much in-tune with her Blackness.
I had been conditioned from childhood. Within eroticized rage, there was actual rage in me as a Black man, and I saw the White female as a way, subconsciously, of getting even or getting back. There are a lot of Black men of my era that are not aware of this thing.
No additional details about Mathew’s Destiny’s Child book have been released.
