She looks dumb as hellit’s more embarrassing that they’re still together
why do they look so happy to be there? they standing out in the mall with big ass grins on their faces like “haha aren’t we a cute couple? this is the third time my boyfriend fucked another girl so i had to get creative with the punishments.” she’s dating a dude who not only cheated on her but has the worst taste in shoes of any human being to ever live
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
No, you know what? I’m tired of this. I’m a pasty ass white girl. Bout as white as it gets. And I’m so tired of seeing this crap! I don’t hate magazines that empower black women and make them seem beautiful. I have never once, ONCE, understood the true difference between a light skinned black person and a dark skinned black person, or for that matter, a white girl and a black girl. Each have skin, fingers, eyes. Each have personalities. And I have never nor will I ever understand or buy into the claim that lighter skin equals higher beauty. That makes no god damn sense.
That being said, posts like this piss me off. “White women don’t like black empowerment because it detracts from their own beauty.” Like that’s a fact. I can accept that there are white women who are racist and think that dark skin is less beautiful. But is it not racist to say just because a person is light skinned they feel superior to those who are dark skinned? Is it not racist to take the comments of several white/light skinned people and use them as the faces of all light skinned people? The door to racism swings both ways and I don’t want to be made out as racist or that I feel superior just because of my skin color. I don’t. She deserves to have the title she was given. Can it ever just be “hey these people made racist comments.. They suck.” Instead of “hey these people made racist comments.. White people suck.” I’m not taking part in the racism so if the shaming could stop being directed at light skinned people as a whole, that’d be great…
