I'm still at the beginning and they're talking about exoticism and fetishism. I don't get it.

Just from listening, all of what they are saying is true but it's a shame people are so caught up in color. If she was light this wouldn't be so rare and shocking or as big a deal as it is. We are higher beings. We
are not supposed to be this shallow.

@newdiva oh you meant that "She ain't like the resta y'all niccas comment...true, true...but I'd probably like her more if she had come from a regular family and was just a regular girl. But I guess they're saying Hollywood doesn't see it that way. I could care less where she's from.

the Gabourey point was interesting.  of course body image matters also. that's another reason Lupita is celebrated.  Her body along with her features and colouring make up the whole gorgeousness package.

Of course people were offended by Gabourey. I was offended by Gabourey. Can't we have a positive image on TV once in a while? Why do we always have to be a caricature?

agreed.  I do think that there is some....some fetishism amongst black folks with Lupita.  As far as Keisha with dark skin from 7mile...will she be celebrated like Lupita as far as beauty?  Folks can be hopeful but I really doubt it.

See what I mean? The girl said her darker skinned friends have been told to gain weight so they could play a more comedic character. Like a nicca can't be in junior's sizes or something.
