Wooow they said how many of these black guys saying Lupita is beautiful would actually want to date her or have sex with her...I don't think that's fair. I think she'd do well with black men, especially light skinned men.

yes.  I had made that argument I think earlier in this thread.  I think for the majority of folks black, white and otherwise her background makes her "better".  I mean...why is Mexico trying so hard to claim her? but i'll not belabor the point.
 
for me also...I don't care what her background is and where's she's from but at the same time her background makes her who she is.  It has produced the things that we "love" about her.  She's everything folks wish AA's would be in general...i'm going off again.  Nevermind me.

I don't have a fetish for dark skin. I appreciate all black beauty beauty. But I do see dark skin on like some affirmative action shyt. So I can appreciate it for that reason.

a post from tumblr

Black people couldn’t wait to jump up and find something negative about lupita nyong’o being the ‘it’ girl.

Already.

She won just 3 days ago.

And y’all already got essays about the fetishization of lupita nyong’o
Knowing damn well you’d write a “racism at the Oscars” essay if she didn’t win.

While I agree...I was talking about out of character.  Gabourey has said some touching things etc but she get's shaded to death no matter what she says just based on her size. Even tho her colouring is just as gorgeous as Lupita's.  This conversation didn't spark when Gabby hit the scene because it was generally thought that she is not pretty therefore she need not be reppin' for dark girls.  Dark girls already got the rep for being fat and sloppy. It was said that Gabourey's background wasn't spoken of like Lupita's.  Of course not...she's american.  NY born.  Nothing special or exotical there.
