Based on the girl on the cover, his wife, Va$htie he likes them exotic looking. Who else has Pharell dated? I bet Va$htie Kola is the darkest woman Pharell has dated.

I am surprised he didn't pull out  "Lanisha Cole was heavily featured in one of my videos. Some of my favorite video vixens have been dark-skinned" card.

what's weird to me, is that black people all know other blacks (in this country) that look like his wife and the woman on his album covers. But the thing is, they are all very conspicuous, like they stand out as being so different from what black looks like they they are almost legends in the community. it's not something any black person i know would shrug off and say, yes, that's a typical black person IMO. 
in his statement he can't believe the audacity of being accused of colorism when he's surrounded by all these black women in his life.

BTW, this fuller promo would have made me want to watch more then the short version that was in rotation:



The girl in the back isn't black it is the girl in the middle that Pharrell said is black.

Actually, if you listen to his interview with the Breakfast club he states that he came up to Lupita and told her how "beautiful her skin was." This brotha literally pulled the 'my best friend is Black card :s

It's better to have the privilege of pretending that your love for something 'other' is not your hatred for something the 'same'


Oh my goodness Alias. My husband commented about this. (He teases me for coming on BHM, but I don't care!!!)

Anyway, he said that the black men that he knows who prefer white women are really twisted. He used 50Cent as an example.
Remember when 50 tried to kiss the white reporter? Can't recall her name. Anyway, she turned her head to avoid 50's kiss. My husband said some brothers at the gym were really going a little nuts about it and called the white girl a racist.

He said he noticed it was the brothers who were married to white women, or who only dated white women, who were making noise about what happened.

He said they were irrational and kept going on and on about white racism. He said they're really nuts because these same brothers wouldn't give a black woman the time of day.

The twist, according to my husband, is that they want whites to extend courtesies to black men, that they as black men won't extend to black women or other blacks. He thinks they're so full of self hate that they need the white woman to validate them even when the white woman has nothing to do with their real lives.
Weird. I never actually thought of this situation this way. Maybe it's a guy thing.
