What is the meaning of blacker the berry?

Asked by Jon Richardson

“The Blacker the Berry” is a grimmer take on the same idea. The narrator of the song wants to show off black pride as fiercely as he can, and yet the memory of his past actions are getting in the way. … The Lamar of “The Blacker the Berry” may not be a hypocrite, but the world has made him to feel like one.
