Tanya hates on Tyra

More on the Tyra Banks show about self-hatred:

RED CLOUT:  Talk show reveals particular racismTyra Banks had Tanya evaluate three other Natives: one male and two females who, at the time, did not know who was saying these words.

Tanya called one of the women a “typical reservation lady” and assumed she was a “trashy thief” who drank at night. She said the man was “scary,” and she feared he would rape her. She then called the other woman “the first beautiful Indian woman I’ve seen,” then added that she looked like she harmed people and took advantage of men.

When Tanya was finally revealed to the three other Natives, they looked shocked and one quickly asked who raised her.
