In a recent interview with KMEL in the Bay, one-time groupie to the stars, Karrine Steffans brought up some interesting points on how to please your man and how to be a good woman. The thing that struck as the most interesting thing she said in the interview was that she doesn’t see herself as African-American and that she doesn’t raise her 15-year old son to think so either.

Her logic is based around the fact that her family is actually from St. Thomas.

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.

That wasn’t ass she spoke about. Check out her full interview with the radio station here

Sidenote: In the UK, the word “Super head” means someone who is really, really, smart.
