When I saw this commercial I instantly knew it would spark hatred, unfortunately from my brothas and sistahs. And like clockwork it did cause a stink. Beyonce Knowles can never get a break from criticism. On her latest Loreal campaign Beyonce explains how her skin is a mixture of African American, Native American, and French so she needs a foundation that will blend all of her hues and make her skin look flawless. However a lot of black people feel this is an attempt to water down her blackness; instead of putting the other two cultures she should have just listed African American; my question is why?
Sometimes I believe black people are reaching for anything to bitch about. Why should this sistah deny the other parts of her heritage just so a hand picked few black people can feel comfortable? So what if it was the other way around? What if a white person or better yet what if Kimora Lee puts down just African American and disregards her Asian descent? See what I’m saying? It’s ridiculous! Let this woman embrace ALL of her gumbo of cultures. I think it is refreshing that a woman is 100% comfortable in her skin, inside and out. The majority of the black women that have problems with this commercial go about their business every day wearing ultra bright blonde weaves, sport arctic blue contacts, put on mile long acryllic nails, and put on gobs of skin lighting cream or insert their asses with toxic fluid to make them bigger! Isn’t that technically denying your african american side? You are trying way too hard to be something other than yourself. There is one thing to enhance your beauty but to go over board, well that’s just false advertising to me. So I ask this to all who have a problem with that simple commercial – are you comfortable in your own skin?
Peace and luv!
