According to reports Stevie Wonder is shocked after learning that he had lived his entire life not knowing he was black.
Stevland Hardaway Judkins, known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.
When asked by reporter: “How does it feel to be black and knowing there is still racism alive, but not being able to see it, only hear about it?”
Stevie Wonder responded with “I’m black?” At that point, Stevie Wonder’s manager Keith Harris approached Stevie and had an inaudible private talk with Stevie. It is apparent that Keith was letting Stevie Wonder know that he was, in fact, black, as Stevie Wonder came back and sat back down on the interview chair with a puzzled look on his face.
Stevie Wonder was born six weeks premature, which, along with the oxygen-rich atmosphere in the hospital incubator, resulted in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), a condition in which the growth of the eyes is aborted and causes the retinas to detach; so he became blind. Stevie has no memory of how anything in this world looks, as he was too young to remember any of it.
“We thought he knew” said Keith Harris, “I mean, how could he not know, He’s 65 years old man this is crazy, Did he think he was a white man this whole time?
After this shocking discovery, ” Stevie Wonder, left the interview and went back-stage alone without any help“. Many believe that he is not 100% blind, and can actually see.
