Whoever it was that said that

Whoever it was that said that Beyonce, or "Beyaki" as they called her, can't sing is a liar for real. Commercialized? Yes. Back-stabbing? Maybe. But not being able to sing? That is definitely NOT what it is. Why do we have to put down one artist in order to lift another artist up? Erykah is talented. Very talented. But it's like people feel they have to prove how "real" they are by putting down the commercial music in favor of the Erykahs and the Lauryns. As for the race issue, I don't know if it's still this way now, but in the past, in the US, for purposes of the census if you even had like 5% black in you, then you were considered black. So it's not as though the media just concocted this plan to deny black women their due. It's just the way this country is and has been. I think that Halle Berry is beautiful, but I don't feel that she is the epitome of black beauty. I don't think there should be an epitome of beauty in any race. This is why people have eating disorders and have plastic surgery. They're trying to keep up with someone who is the epitome of beauty for their particular race. I agree with the person who said that we are all the epitome of black beauty. If there were a darker person with ethnic features that we considered the "epitome" of beauty, then there would be all these women out there trying to see how they could be darker, how they could have a bigger nose and fuller lips. Everything would just shift from trying to be light-skinned to trying to be dark-skinned. We should all just try to be the most beautiful people inside and out that we can be.

I agree with a lot of what

I agree with a lot of what Ldn callin is saying. Young black girls have always endured this problem, except that it used to really be only white women on the covers of magazines. Even the powerful Oprah Winfrey mentioned wanting a smaller nose as a girl becaue of the images of the white standard of beauty that she was constantly bombarded with. Why are ethnic features always something that has to be repressed or beaten back? Why must black hair be straightened or dyed some strange shade of blonde? Why can't the dark girl be the love interest in the music video (she's usually cut off at the waist and reduced to shaking her *ss). The worst part is that black media is using its platform to perpetuate these images of whiteness, instead of shattering or challenging this out-of-date beauty standard. It's like some kind of self-hatred.

[quote comment="11821"]This

[quote comment="11821"]This is actually to the previous Nelly post: Actually, Natasaha, I feel Nelly and he doesn’t need to stop (well, maybe stop the ignorant stuff all together). I read your site. I like it a lot. I told all my sisters about it. They like it too. But, I actually feel Nelly. Not just Halle, but many of the people that grace the cover of Essence do some pretty disgraceful things. It’s just a shame that we’re pit against one another like that, as to where it’s okay from Halle or Beyonce, but not for Nelly or Ludacris, then we’re forced to recognize it and fight over it. And on the Halle tip…she’s gorgeous, she’s got style; we glorify her. But why is the epitome of Black beauty a half-white woman? Please respond (anyone), I’m interested in the answer to that last question.[/quote] I am from England, but also very concerned as to how the media portrays black women. I do believe that people with parents from two different races should be considered black is incorrect. The media has created this notion, to please themselves, however we should remember that by glorifying women such as Halle as black, this further alienates true black women from being recognised for whom we truly are. Once mixed race people become black, then what do 'black women' become?? Society is leaning towards the notion that it is ok to be of mixed appearance, such as your Beyonce's, Amerie's etc and labelled as black because at the most basic levels they do not want pure black women to succeed. Whats even more worrying is the black man's role in this very damaging trend, which has the potential to really create problems for the self esteem of our young black sisters. All responses will be appreciated.

iliot, Halle Berry is a

iliot, Halle Berry is a beautiful woman but she is not the epitome of black beauty. For me anyway. I've always thought Lauryn Hill ( I know Miss Lauryn is going through some ish right now but she's strong) is the epitome of black beauty with that dark skin, those thick lips and the nappy hair. I've always respected her decision not to straighten/relax or hair or wear a weave. I would hold her up as the epitome. But thats just me. Each to their own. On another note, Jigga's swagger is ridiculous!

Fez I agree we have been taught white is right forever. But Halle nor do any mixed race children ask to be here. We can't change the world or anyone's view of us. So love you in all your blackness and move on sweetie and enjoy life.

Raheem is truly illustrating

Raheem is truly illustrating how black women should be represented in videos. Those women are strong, beautiful and sexy, all without being "objectified." That's how to represent for women and how to be real women!

I saw Raheem's new video this weekend. I was already in love with the song, now I love it even more. The video is done really tasteful and it is a welcome change to see and hear a song that uplifts sistahs instead of degrading them.

She was wack on “Girlfriends” BTW." I have some choice words for you Ms. Harlem Chic: First, Erykah may dress and act out of sorts to you, but that's her style and choice just like I'm sure that you have your own style. We do have choices in America and maybe she doesn't want to look, sound and act like everyone else....that's her freedom of choice! That's why she is unique. Furthermore, she has tremendous talent. You can't knock her live performances...she may not have the warddrobe or lighting that Beyaki and them have but her show is all the way live and when you leave you feel good!!!! For that fact alone, Ms. Badu should be celebrated! Stop hating on Ms. Badu!!!! She is way better than some of these commercialized, non-singing, back-stabbing Beyaki's of today!!!!

[quote comment="11862"]I'm so

[quote comment="11862"]I'm so tired of this talk about Halle Berry.Halle is not black she is BIRACIAL.as much as she has black blood in her,she also has white.its pure ignorance to say that woman is black when she has 50% of white blood in her. I've read some interviews with that woman and she has claimed she's black,biracial,tanned whatever.growing up biracial isnt easy,I know I'm biracial too,but at the end of the day that woman is B-I-R-A-C-I-A-L.[/quote] whats biracial??? i mean i was born black mother white father and i never refer to myself as biracial bcuz i know i am black white people don't reconized us as any other race we are black so forget somewhere in the middle we BLACK and proud of it too and i guess so is halle.

[quote comment="11849"]When I'm in a room full of black people, all I can think is how beautiful we are. I don't care what shade they are, due to circumstances in our past we are all mixed w/something no matter how far back it is. That is why we come in so many shades. Hummingbird you are so right about this page, I'm back on because my show is on commercial. Is that sad or what?[/quote] Sunshine We are beautiful, however, they are mixed with us, not the other way around. We are the originals! Why get a copy, when you have the original, because the copy hates the original.

Maybe I'm always around here hoping to score with one of you ladies, as you say, "hanging out", in that case it looks like you win the prize Sunshine..

there is no past history of a

there is no past history of a 40 year old rapper, so what should he be dressing like? he's not trying to peak the interest of the 40-50 year old crowd. he is still trying to get the attention of the 106 & park / trl crowd, so in that case he is dressed appropriately. he isn't at a business meeting he is rapping. what do u think he should be rapping in khakis?? come on, he's a MC, he's dressing like an MC. has anyone seen the way ll cool j been dressing lately and they are about the same age.
