    Re: Beyonce In Blackface: Racist or Art?

    I guess what bothers me is that like in one pic did you notice that only her face and neck were made "black". She is already a black woman so why the need to make her darker? Why not just put tribal markings on her face? Why the need to have her painted blacker than her own skin color? Why is her shade not lovely enough to paint or do up as is it is?

    I am not ready to say it is racist but can see how some folks find it offensive, regressive and yes even racist.

    But isn't she black? How could it be racist?
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Some celebrities make money because of their managers and handlers.. not because they are smart

    Beyonce is not black anymore than Halle Berry is.

    This is black:


    This is not:


    Until I see someone of Kenyan descent winning an Academy Award, I'm not really shedding tears of pride. Beyonce representing black people is a joke. She is fair skinned, spoiled, and rich. Nothing about her represents the underprivileged demographic she is trying to portray.

    Hey, you have a Kenyan president.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
