Natalie Cole Explains Her Mother’s Complex Against Dark Skin

July 11, 2014

Note From Fightingmisogynoir: One of my reader/followers sent me this link to share with you all. She noted how this ties into the conversation about how many light/bi-racial/white and non-black women love (or lust) after dark skin black men, but hate dark-skin black women.


Natalie’s mother married a dark skinned man, Nat King Cole. You may have heard of him – the silky smooth voice of “Unforgettable,” “Nature Boy,” “Smile,” “Too Young,” “The Christmas Song” (Chestnut Roasting On An Open Fire), “Mona Lisa” and “Ramblin’ Rose” – and, in 1956, became the first Black ever to host his own network TV show, NBC’s The Nat King Cole Show. Yeah, that guy. So why would Maria Cole’s family have such a dislike for dark skin Black people? 

Natalie also claimed her mother’s family felt that her father, was too Black for them.

“For a dark-skinned man such as my father to acquire a light-skinned woman such as my mother was a real important prize.”Your status moved up. That doesn’t mean that her family was all that happy about her marrying my father. He was too Black for them.”

Her Grandmother was very socially conscious, and according to Natalie:

“She [Natalie’s Grandmother] didn’t want my mother to get involved with anyone with too many Black characteristics, because then your children would look funny. It wasn’t just my mother, it’s the way many Black people were raised.” 

Well there you have it folks. Reading this makes me wonder if Natalie Cole grew up with skin complexion issues, being that she was a brown girl being raised with a few family members who viewed her complexion as something to not be fully proud of, although I don’t doubt for one second that they loved her.

This subject has been deeply rooted in our community all the way back to slavery when the darker slaves worked outside in the fields and the lighter slaves oftentimes worked in the house. We all know the story- the lighter skinned slaves were closer to the owner’s complexion, and therefore tolerable enough to be within close proximity to his family. Unfortunately, in a lot of African American circles, we also know that this psychological stigma still exists and many Black people throughout the centuries have had feelings of never being good enough and/or accepted. Clearly, Natalie Cole’s family was also affected by this.


(Scene from School Daze)

Spike Lee’s School Daze tackled the modern day version of this topic well. Growing up, many of us probably recall hearing certain kids get ridiculed with jokes calling them “darkie,” “blackie” and others. Just as some of us also heard people tease light skinned kids and call them names like “high yellow” and such. I remember my friend’s Grandmother would say that it was okay for the boyfriends, husbands, or the men in the family to be dark, but not the women…..that’s a subject for another day though. But this is the kind of thing Natalie Cole dealt with in her own family.

Back to the Spike Lee joint which was based on Spike’s experiences at Morehouse College, you had the jigaboos and wannabees. I know for a fact that across the street at the sister school – Spelman College, there was once a time when young high school senior girls applied, they had to send in photos to pass the ‘brown paper bag’ test unless their mother was an alum, or they were from a powerful family.

(Natalie Cole’s mother, Maria Cole)

So it definitely doesn’t make it right, but at least this helps us to understand a little bit more about how much Mrs. Maria Cole and her family were inflicted by these universal light skin/ dark skin misconceptions, being that it was such a huge ‘thing’ in our community, and to a large degree, it’s still a ‘thing’ today. For example, have you seen any of today’s music videos lately? Finding a brown or dark skin woman in one of them is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but that too, is a story for another day.Sadly, Mrs. Cole passed away just a few years ago and this is what Natalie Cole and her siblings, Timolin and Casey Cole (twins) had to say about their Mother, Maria Cole:

“Our mom was in a class all by herself. She epitomized class, elegance, and truly defined what it is to be a real lady.” 

Maria and Nat King Cole were married from 1948 until his death from lung cancer in 1965, shortly after he finished filming the comedy Western Cat Ballou, with Lee Marvin and Jane Fonda. May Mr. and Mrs. Cole continue to restll.

*preferably non-religious, although I do think O, Holy Night is really pretty

Christmas things I [a Jew] very much DO NOT appreciate:

  • Being wished a ‘Merry Christmas’ because it doesn’t occur to people that not everybody they meet celebrates it
  • People asking me why I don’t have a Christmas tree
  • People insisting that I should celebrate Christmas because it’s ‘secular’
  • People feeling sorry for me because I don’t celebrate Christmas
  • People believing that Christmas is better and more important than any other religious group’s holidays
  • People being personally offended when some people of minority faiths need space from Christmas festivities
  • People not being inclusive of individuals of minority faiths in their celebrations
  • People not recognizing that other religious groups have holidays year round and that the December holiday season is not everyone’s holiday season
  • Candy Canes (too sticky and I always end up licking the plastic at some point by accident)
  • That Feliz Navidad song
  • Those inflatable lawn decorations (I’m look at you, too, Halloween)
  • Reindeer antlers/Rudolph noses on cars (no, stop)
  • Nativity scenes on government property
  • People expecting me to tone down my Jewishness during the Christmas season
  • People interpreting my requests for sensitivity towards individuals of minority faiths as ‘hating Christmas’

I think it’s pretty clear that I DO NOT HATE CHRISTMAS. I enjoy the Christmas season quite a bit, actually. By and large, I find it rather lovely. It’s people’s attitudes and reactions towards me as somebody who doesn’t actually celebrate Christmas that I can’t stand.

If you’re mindful of others in your Christmas cheer, and inclusive where it counts during the Christmas holiday season and beyond, then I have no problems with you or your holiday.

Instead of getting defensive of Christmas when people of minority faiths ask you to be more thoughtful this time of year, maybe consider that it’s not your holiday they have a problem with: It’s just you.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire ➝ James and Lily [Christmas 1978]

It was hard for James Potter to believe that this was he and Lily’s second Christmas together, and it was their first Christmas married.  He wanted her to have a special Christmas.  Things had been a little quieter with the war recently and he wasn’t sure if that was a good thing, but they had taken that opportunity to sneak out of their cottage to see her parents. They both knew it was a risk, but it had been one that they were willing to take, if it meant seeing family, their family for Christmas.  That’s what mattered most anyway.  It had been a difficult time after what happened on James mission with Marlene and he wanted normal with his wife.  They would always remember their first Christmas they were married.

They had both hugged her parents tight, and had a good Christmas Eve dinner. Now they were sat on the couch, both contemplating when would be the best time for them to head back. Conversation was still pleasant and James absently had his arms around Lily’s shoulders as he watched her talk.  Her father was nice to them both, and had only given James the shifty eyes once. This felt like home and he hoped the rest of Christmas would be like this. He glanced over at Lily.  "I’m glad we came here tonight.“  Her mother asked when they would have to go and James told her they still had a little bit. "Do you all have any family traditions, Lily?"
