Franchell "Frenchie" Davis sparked debate on social media with a Facebook post calling out our obsession with colorism.
"Ya'll would never exalt and celebrate black women with dark skin and wide noses for being loud and opinionated and obnoxious, as needed," she wrote. "Not the way y'all exalt the Angela Rye's and Amanda Seales' of the world."
"They get to be loud and outspoken and angry without being called bitter. And in these present times, I need the actual black women of lighter hue, who are beneficiaries of this f**k sh*t to do a better job at speaking out on and actively combatting it because I'm side eyeing everybody now."
Frenchie, 41, is best known as a popular contestant on the singing competition show American Idol in 2003.
She went on to perform in Rent on Broadway for 4 years and she was a contestant on the first season of The Voice.

A debate is raging on social media among Trump supporters who swear a White House reporter called White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany a "lying b---h."
Your auntie heard the press conference live on Tuesday, and I heard the tense exchange between McEnany and Al Jazeera English correspondent Kimberly Halkett.
Hhalkett asked McEnany about President Trump's plans to stop Russian interfere in the elections in November.
McEnany read a list of the Trump administration's plans - some already in effect - to fight back against foreign interference. Halkett interrupted McEnany several times as she read the list.
McEnany ended by citing a Wall Street Journal op-ed that questioned "mass mail-out voting."
Apparently not satisfied with McEnany's answers, Halkett pressed her with more questions. At that point McEnany decided to move on to another reporter.
"You've gotten two questions which is more than some of your colleagues," McEnany told Halkett.
When listening live, it sounded like Halkett said, "Okay, you don't want to engage."
But after the debate erupted on Twitter.com, a second listen to the audio sounds like she says, "you're a lying b---h."
You decide. Listen to the audio with unbiased ears. What do you hear?
Alyssa Milano came under fire for wearing an impractical crochet face mask after urging her followers to wear masks to protect themselves from the coronavirus.
The actress took to Twitter on Saturday to share an image of herself alongside husband Dave Bugliari and their two children on Instagram.
"Show me your masks! Masks keep people safe and healthy. Show me yours! Ready? Go!" she tweeted.
Users on the social media site were quick to criticize the knit mask, leading Milano to defend her mask, claiming there was a filter inside her mask.
"A-holes, mask has a carbon filter in it. So, yes, it might be crochet but totally safe," Milano wrote. "Mask has a filter in it for f-k's sake (sic). A carbon one. My mom makes them. #WearAMask".
The former "Charmed" star also shared a screenshot of the pack of 100 filters she had purchased.
But fans pointed out they could see her skin through the holes in the mask. Which means she was likely not wearing a filter.
A political war over masks is raging in America as millions take sides in the debate over whether to wear a face mask or go mask-free.
Social media videos show grocery shoppers attacking one woman who chose to go mask-free. Other videos show people fighting over the right not to wear a face mask.
In some states, face masks are mandatory, but Georgia is still mask-free.
Mask advocates say wearing a mask slows the spread of the virus. But experts say masks provide no real protection because the masks are not fitted tightly to the face like N95 respirators.
The virus can easily escape or enter through the holes around the nose and wrinkles in masks and face coverings.
The safest way to protect against spreading the virus is washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, avoiding sick people, and covering your mouth with your sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
