Do you feel dark skinned women should get Academy Awards for playing maids?



    Why can't you just be happy for Lupita Nyong’o? Finally a dark skinned woman with NATURAL HAIR wins an Oscar and gets recognized as beauty. Why do you have a problem with that?

    There is no pleasing some a onoo You weren't happy with any of the black Miss Worlds or Miss Universes because they had weaves. I detest weaves but they would not have been selected without the weaves. Even the White women have weaves in those pageants. Do I support it? Of course not but that is what it takes to win. Criticize the pageant organizers and judges not the women.

    How come you never said anything when Halle Berry got an academy award for playing a whore and then got selected as most beautiful woman....




    ...or Beyonce with her blonde self got it for basically parading around in skimpy clothing and shaking her batty. Grant you she can act a little.



    For once we have a BLACK woman and not some light skinned chick get recognition and onoo still not happy. Do you feel only white and light skinned women should get praise.

    Whether you like it or not, what the mainstream deems to be attractive does have an impact on young people. It has an impact on the self-esteem of Black girls and young ladies and it definitely has an impact on who men perceive as "datable" and marriage material. So this is a good thing.
