Yesterday afternoon on the rooftop of the L'Hermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, plenty of YBF chicks hit up the Nike Fuel Band Rooftop Yoga Sculpt Workout for the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.  With the help of celeb trainer Jeanette Jenkins, all of the women received a NikeFuel Band as they enjoyed a Yoga Sculpt class...topped off with spa treatments and breakfast.  Nice!

What about you go back to

What about you go back to Europe, and let's see what you can do without us. Whites are the biggest criminals, liars, selfish, heartless people that should be ashamed of themselves. It's part of your stupid propaganda, by saying go back to Africa. You guys went to Africa, ripped the continent apart, ran away, while some are still lurking around to see what else to benefit from. And now, you guys want to point to Africa like see what you have done, when you guys are the MAIN cause Africa is the way it is today. It's so much damage that has been done to the black race but we will eventually get there one day. You guys did nothing for us except created more problems. But, you guys want to walk around like you are doing us a favor. Are you kidding me? Quit been so full of yourself. You are so insecure which is the norm with whites when they see us doing opposite of what they want us to do. Go get a life, because from the looks of things, you sound like a loser.

Beautiful, beautiful women!

Beautiful, beautiful women! Yes, they have make-up on, just minimal. They know there's gonna be photos, and they're celebrities, of course they're gonna do that: "I look like I have no make-up on, but it took an hour to get this natural look!" Tee hee.

If you're so pressed for

If you're so pressed for "white bitches" go on over to TMZ, my friend. You'll LOVE the comments they make about your kind over there.

saying "my friend" is VERY

saying "my friend" is VERY condescending -----> for YOUR sake, i hope you never say that to people face-to-face or over the phone (they'll think you are a Phony Bitch)
Al Sharpton's picture

You should be glad this

You should be glad this person was polite enough to ONLY condescendingly say "my friend" when addressing your asinine remarks because quite frankly your comment was rather insulting. I hope YOU never say that to people face-to-face, over the phone, or within an earshot of the wrong group of people. (They'll think you need a bitch slap - I know I sure think you deserve one!)
Anonymous's picture

How dare you say anything is

How dare you say anything is condescending when you just called those black women "horses" You fool, you just got dished with the same amount of respect you gave out, dumbass! Worry about your own sake with yourself, you need it more than any of us on this site. Insecure-need to find the black in me-lookin ass!
