Lupita's beauty is uncontroversial in a sense that most people can see it. The shock and amazement surrounding her looks are borderline offensive. People are practically saying... "I can't believe someone as dark as she is is as beautiful as she!"


Marc Lamont is exactly right when he says that non-Black people are excited to find her genuinely attractive so they can use her as their token... their card to pull when they're told they're racist or colorist

She is just another example of how Black people must be "exceptional" in order to be embraced as normal or embraced in general

But I still love the girl

i thought it was interesting how we talk for dayyys and pages about gabby and how she can never get it right.. 

but she finally got it right this most recent award show and there was very little commentary about it…

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.
there would have been racism essays if 12 years period ain't get no kind of awards let alone Lupita. *shrugs*  to speak on the possible fetishism...I don't see that as a negative thing if there's some truth to it.

We are BLACK and we live in a society that does not genuinely love us so of course it's not so cut and dry when they selectively choose to embrace one of us (or not)

It's always important to discuss the psychology behind their actions as it pertains to our lives
