Normani has revealed that she sometimes had a hard time being the only black member of Fifth Harmony. "It was a subconscious thing," she tells Billboard. "You think, 'Why am I the least followed in the group?' Even if you don’t recognize that you’re paying close attention to it, it takes a toll on your confidence. You worry--is it me? Is it because I’m black? Or am I just not talented?" The 22-year-old singer goes on to say that her bandmates tried to support her, but couldn't relate to the racial slurs and death threats that internet trolls sent her. "I don’t think they had the tools that they needed, because it’s not their experience," she explains. I can give them credit for trying to be there for me, but at the same time... The girls don’t experience things the way I did."
