A magazine can put whoever they wish on the cover. Calling anybody the most beautiful woman is risky and very naive. She is very beautiful for a black woman but I doubt she is the most beautiful black woman out there.
It has nothing to do with political correctness. It’s just a magazine being silly. Not an award.
I dislike her beyond words but not everything she does is bad. As of late she is just a mindless, characterless puppet to the media.
"Beautiful for a black woman"….says the girl who looks like last weeks lasagna.
I wish I had time to unpackage all that that is involved with “For A Black Woman”, but I’m gonna walk that one off. I just hope that OP gets her life together. Tearing down Lupita… did that do anything for you? Lupita’s representation in a magazine… does that oppress you? SOMEONE THINKING SHE’S BEAUTIFUL… how does that impact your day? White people still “set the standard” of beauty in these parts. Calling this magazine’s decision “silly” and “nothing but political correctness” is MUCH MORE DAMAGING than I think you could wrap your mind around. But like I said, I’m gonna walk this one off.. because folks on Tumblr are going to drag you around enough. I’m not going to call you ugly. I’m not going to make fun of you. I am going hope you see the light that, just because your bigoted mind can’t see beauty where beauty is ABUNDANTLY prevelant, you don’t write off your impending dragging as “SJWs on the Attack”.
Oh… and mindless? She’s a MFA graduate from Yale. Get your shit together.
Fucking……. “for a black woman.” I feel sorry for you
Taking time out to address the fact that so many white folks got in their feelings when I called they asses out about the fact that they dislike Lupita, and think that she shouldn’t have won an Oscar because she’s Black and think she is inherently inferior and didn’t have to work that hard. This is a testament to that truth. That white people, will forever think hard work and blackness are exclusive of one another. White people truly believe that they are only ones who suffer, who struggle who work hard for anything, when in actuality it’s quite the opposite. Historically it’s quite the opposite, socially it’s the opposite. Calling Lupita the most beautiful woman in the world is “risky” and “naive” because she is a Darkskin Black Woman, this wouldn’t have been said if it was Angelina Jolie. Lupita being politically correct, wouldn’t have been used if it was Anne Hathaway. The fear, and anger they possess because they can’t be a inch of what we are is deeper than a black hole.
