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

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.

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.

Maybe she's part Irish-Cherokee-Italian-Scottish-Scandinavian-Dominican and lastly African. I thought that mixture was common.

Geezus Alias.
Before you try to slander my user name amongst the BHM constituents while I shop for home decor...
[ long unneccessary rant] keep in mind our main dialogue was about Pharrells wife "whether she considers herself Black" (as you put it) and her racial "ambiguity".

Meet me in another thread for my big write up on creativity in the future that I'm sure you won't agree with ...

Lastly...I never disagreed with or agreed with the actions of Pharrell... (if you actually read my post)
but lets be honest, I'm pretty sure if he was married to a white or Asian woman he would lose a whole hell of a lot of points just on that alone...
 
but you know what your right.... that was a f*ck-up on Pharrells part .. Does he deserve to be vanquished to a state of purgatory and forever be branded as ANOTHER sh*tty black male ...and another example for you to use to speak about black males with a broad brush?... I dunno.. "whats his track record?" was my only question.

So yes...there needs to be a more notable and better positive, representation of Dark Skin women in main stream American media... among other avenues ... Lupita, Ol girl fighting Vampires, Gabby, Tika, Kandi, Janelle Monae , Joy Reid ect are solid reps to help continue to build self esteem in young black girls. Young dark skin black girls. The momentum is trending... abet slowly ... but trending ... imo

I personally think some issues are Wedge issues thats why I try to approach with an open hand ... Notice how my first response was a question and not an attack.

So where we have disagreements because I don't lean hard enough does not mean I'm not leaning in the same direction at all ... I'm just trying to keep my balance. [/ long unnecessary rant complete]
