Author Ayesha Curry is being applauded and raising eyebrows once more by sharing her truths with the world via a lengthy interview with Mother magazine.

The chef recently caused a ton of drama

by saying she wished other men gave her attention while s*lamming the countless groupies lurking around her husband, Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry.

This time around, Ayesha confessed that her young daughters — Riley and Ryan — told her that they are not black and she had to explain the following: “Everyone was from a place other than Canada, and that’s how you identified yourself, not black or white. I identified as Jamaican because that’s where my mom came from. In the States, I’m simply ‘black.'”

She continued: “They’re fair in complexion, and they’ve said: ‘I’m not black; look at my skin.’ And I said: ‘No, no, no. You’re a black woman. You have melanin. It’s part of who you are. Our descendants are from Africa. This is what that means.’ It’s been a journey teaching them that, and that black comes in many different shades.”

She added: “My own community needs to embrace everyone better. Sometimes I feel like I’m too black for the white community, but I’m not black enough for my own community. That’s a hard thing to carry. That’s why my partnership with CoverGirl was special for me because I felt like I didn’t fit the mold [of a CoverGirl],” Ayesha added, “I’m not in the entertainment industry, in the traditional sense.

I’m not thin; I’m 170 pounds on a good day. It’s been a journey for me, and that’s why I want my girls to understand who they are—and to love it.”

One critic replied: “You’re not black you’re mixed. It’s not a bad thing. That’s like a pink crayon saying it’s 🖍our family is gorgeous. You inspire so many, thank you for being great role models for a strong black successful family.❤️Thank you for being honest and transparent about your life. 👏🏾”.

A supporter wrote: “Agreed. Even though I was born in the US, my Jamaican parents/family made sure we knew that too! I didn’t know anything about racial division until I went to undergrad. Not sure how you manage everything you do and still manage to be a great mom and wife. What a role model you and your husband have been, not because of what you do but because of who you are. Happy, good sports and have faith.”

This Instagram user shared: “Ok, I apologize but dang Queen. Sit the heck down. Are You trying to out due Steph? You have already with 3 babies. Be like LJ’s wife. Smart, Rich, and off social media so much. It’s like we know Your special, DO YOU?”

This third person stated: “All her friends be here defending her and talking about rising above while she in the comments arguing 🙄😂😂 Baby girl you ain’t slick.

Did you talk about the balance between keeping it real and getting plastic surgery?🧐”

Note that Ayesha was born in Canada to a Jamaican and Chinese mother and a Black and Polish father and her family moved to North Carolina when she was 14 years old — this is where she met Steph.
