In a recent interview, Tina Knowles, mother of singer Beyoncé, shared a memory of an encounter with a white woman who questioned her decision to let her daughter marry rapper JAY-Z. The incident occurred at a Los Angeles restaurant, where Knowles and her husband, actor Richard Lawson, were having dinner with their daughter and JAY-Z. This incident dates back to over a decade ago when Beyoncé and JAY-Z were still dating.

Knowles explained that the woman approached her table and asked: "Why would you let your daughter marry a drug dealer?" This incident left Knowles both shocked and hurt. She responded to the woman, saying that she did not appreciate her comment and that JAY-Z was not a drug dealer, but a businessman.

She pointed out that the incident occurred while Beyoncé was not yet widely recognized as the superstar she is today, suggesting that the woman's comment was influenced by racial stereotypes rather than actual knowledge.

Knowles discussed the importance of fighting against these biases and stereotypes while promoting unity and understanding among people of different backgrounds.
