A lot of fans of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta don’t know that one of its alum, Peter Thomas, actually has a child from a previous relationship. The woman’s name is Nancy Fernandez, and you can see her likeness in the post below.
Not a lot of people know of Fernandez, but she managed to generate some attention and publicity for herself in a social media post where she questioned Thomas’ son for his racial identity.
In the video, Nancy claims Peter’s boy isn’t really black because his mother isn’t black. Even though no one is exactly sure of Fernandez’s ethnicity, most believe that if the father is black, then the son must be.
In the Instagram upload underneath the text, Fernandez and Peter’s boy are hanging out together, and the kid jokes that his dad is as dark-skinned as dark-skinned can be.
Nancy jokes she made her son “all on her own,” and because of that fact, her son isn’t really of African-descent.
Baby Mother to Ex RHOA Star, Peter Thomas, Tells Their Son He’s “NOT Black”—blogged by @lovelikejhoney ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Peter Thomas’ baby mother, Nancy Fernandez, is under fire after posting a video with their son doubting his acknowledgment as her Black child. The mother’s race is unknown, however, the son explains that by having a Black father, he is Black. Followers are disappointed that not only racial shaming (light-skin versus dark-skin) remains an issue in 2018, but also disappointed that ill-minded separation is still being taught to the children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “What do I have?” “A white daughter and Black son.” “You’re not Black, you’re brown.” “My dad is the color of a newly paved street.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The mother and son both laughed, but he stood by his argument stating “I’m Black,” just before the video ended. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Peter Thomas reposted the video with the caption: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “@kvnng.bt (my son stated, my dad is black like a newly paved street) ???? I AM BLACK @itsnancyhernandez BUT I AM ALSO BEAUTIFUL..”
The kid joked, “my dad is the color of a newly paved street.” Both parties laughed at the comment. And while some people, especially reporters over at BET.com, are extremely upset, most on social media think their comments were merely a joke between themselves.
Either way, one has to wonder for exactly what purpose was the video made? Sources close to Nancy explained to us “that it was just supposed to be a harmless post. She wasn’t expecting it to generate so much attention.” Black or not black, Peter has sparked the ire of many recently.
As it was previously reported, Thomas started dating Shay Johnson. The entrepreneur and Shay recently took to social media to express their admiration for each other. Underneath the relevant Instagram post, Peter said Shay’s freckles are “beautiful with absolutely no makeup.”
