right? LOL

Can you really be surprised by the Nigerian artist with those watered down lyrics.

It's clear who gets show cased as beauty & the luxury of having once a lavish life style is attained.I don't really watch music videos anymore.One video that I recall bothering me was Jereimiah's birthday sex video.How are you going to have a line like "Them chocolate lips got me wanting Hersey kisses," in the song & use a non-black woman in the video?Confused

This

Because it is still being left behind. Doesn't matter if it's music videos, movies etc, it's still very much a valid point. 

Great topic Uppity but it's such an exhausting conversation, a lot of black women have been silenced on the matter. Kinda just accepted it. Sucks. 

Don't think other races haven't clocked that 'our' men won't feature us in their vanity projects (bazztardsLOL

Good point zsazsa. Besides it's not just the videos, but the lyrics too.

Honestly there's nothing that can be done.

Exactly.  Who puts women who look like him in his videos.  He actually finds women who share his features and skin color to be attractive.

This is sooo not the point.
 
Whether its an R&B song, a ballad, or a degrading rap song, the bottom line is that if the artist isn't black, the women in the video will resemble him, if the artist is black the women will mostly likely be anything but black.
 
Further, disrespect of women and misogny are a completely different topic entirely.  Whether or not the artist is backwards in his view of women, the fact remains that the women in those music videos represent the ideal beauty of the black men making the videos.  So even if the words of the music were different, and the women were depicted better, we would still be having this discussion.
