Amara La Negra argues with Charlamagne over colorism in Black America (video)

It is Charlamagne tha God’s job to be a provacateur and instigator in order to draw out authentic responses from his interview subjects and also create talking points.

Sometimes the dude’s schtick is tiring and his deliberate attempt at playing devil’s advocate goes radically wrong.

That’s what went wrong when “Love and Hip Hop Miami” breakout star Amara La Negra visited Charlamagne, Envy and the rest of “The Breakfast Club” morning radio show on Monday.

Charlamagne’s very first question was a blunt and uncouth “What are you?” to the Afro-Latina whose parents were born in the Dominican Republican. And it began an elongated conversation about her ethnic origins instead of her music or even the show she is the big star on, LHHMIA.
