Supermodel Amber Rose has revealed that majority of
her family wasn't in attendance at her wedding to rapper Wiz Khalifa
because of their views on African Americans.
In a personal new interview for the Oprah Winfrey Network, the
supermodel shared personal stories of colorism by her family that

"I'm angry that my family is like that and they want to pass so
