BRAVO Television's Real Housewives of Atlanta (aka RHOA) SEASON 7 cast member, Claudia Jordan's offensive COLORIST and RACIST remarks about African Americans -- in particular, DARK SKINNED African Americans, has been documented online since 2009.
Her comments have been long known in the radio and comedy circuits within the African American community. She is particularly known for making remarks against DARK SKINNED African Americans, calling them 'orangutans', 'monkeys', and 'beasts'. Additionally, she has had an infamous feud with Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle-Harris - a mother, singer, talk show host, tv producer, as well as the wife of well known, multi-platinum selling, Hip-Hop artist/record label owner, T.I. Claudia Jordan on a notorious radio show segment several years ago, spewed a 10+ minute monologue disparaging Mrs. Cottle-Harris' physical appearance, most notably calling her a 'Waste of Light Skin'.
She has most recently been known to attack cast member NeNe Leakes, specifically attacking her hair texture, the spelling and pronunciation of her name -- Lennethia Leakes (insinuating that it is of a 'low-class') and referring to her as a 'Beast' and a host of other simian animals.
We firmly believe that if these comments were made with regard to other ethnic, religious or gender orientation minorities, such as the Jewish or LGBT communities, this would NOT be tolerated.
It is important to note that Claudia Jordan is biracial (African American and Caucasian) and was raised by her Caucasian mother. Racism and colorism are extremely prevalent in this type of familial environment, and any attempts by her to deflect by calling herself a 'Black Woman' should be taken with a grain of salt, and an attempt to save her employment on RHOA, as well as her career in entertainment.
Therefore, in light of Claudia Jordan's recklessly politically incorrect remarks with regard to race and colorism, we demand that she be removed as a cast member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, for SEASON 8; this includes, her being cast as a 'Friend of the Housewives'.
If this request is not met, we commit to cease watching the program, as well as spreading the word online and offline, for others to do so.
We also plan to take this petition to various media outlets if her return on Season 8 of RHOA is made possible.
