loving famous black women is cool, but loving average black women in everyday life and not making them into instagram memes is also cool

BLACK Actress | Episode 2 [x]

Disappointing…  black folks are still doing these kind of jokes… and it’s always Beyonce because we’re going to pretend there isn’t a Colorism issue there…

This is progress?  These are our enlightened cosmopolitan modern negroes?  Just let Tyler Perry keep cooning for us all.  We don’t need more of this…

#CycleofFailure  #Cycleof SelfHate #ThisisNOTProgress #TheyShouldBeAshamedofThemselves

Please shut the fuck up.

coreydrake ….^^^ when trash speaks… lol.  Oh Corey… keep fighting for your right to be a coon.  The world laughs at you.

See this is why I told your dumbass to shut up. You don’t know what the hell you’re even talking about. It’s embarrassing and negative. Please list 5 shows/series with “this kind of joke” and while you’re at it, please elaborate on the Beyoncè/colorism issue and how it pertains to Black Actress since you so haphazardly threw it out there. If anyone is a joke it’s you bitch. Passing judgement on a great web series that was written, directed, produced and starred a black woman over one fucking gifset? And said woman always promotes self love and progress?? Again, shut the fuck up.

Well that’s what is so disappointing about it.  I don’t care WHO wrote it (of course I knew it a female)… they’re supposed to be better than that idiocy in that gifset.  It is a fucking slippery slope with black women’s images and they’re supposed to know the fuck better.

… and “No”… I don’t know of 5 web series or shows that have made that joke as that joke is usually found in the gutters of self-hating negro troll facebook/twitter land… usually of out some hideous black male’s mouth, the irony.  The new bitchy black male: obsessed with shaming black women whenever given the opportunity… actually they make their own opportunities at this point… that’s how punkbitches work when they want to deflect from how they fail as men.

You’re right… Beyonce and Colorism have nothing to do with each other, let alone the use of a dark-skinned woman with a short natural to say that line. O_o… C’mon now… If you are a Beyonce stan, sometimes those blinders have to be taken off to see how your idol is being used inappropriately. 

The lighter-skinned young lady could have easily delivered the same line as she looks nothing like Beyonce either… the complexion game/crutch, was NOT necessary and as benign as you think that is… that trope is insidious.

… and do you really think I don’t know about this series?  I’m well aware of it which is why this type of writing should not have even been in their writing lexicon, coreydrake

That line is NOT empowering for a specific set of young ladies and only invokes shame.  No matter who is doing the writing… THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN.  ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU, A BLACK WOMAN, HAVE CREATIVE CONTROL.  VERY disappointing…

… and coreydrake , telling a random person who is making an observation/critique, who is not insulting you personally, to “STFU” is trashy and the definition of a punk bitch.  So you can project your low brow, bitchy attitude onto other people, but it will always, clearly, be you with the bitch behavior.  Not worth any more of my time. 

So you can fight the good fight for Colorism and misogynoir jokes, over there, while I not put up with it, over here… k?

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part IV)

And now for the side show… the STL County Council/police fail at being empathetic, and tone deaf white people are tone deaf (and white). #staywoke #farfromover
