Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

BOOTS feat. Beyoncé | ‘Dreams’
Earlier today, the producer known as BOOTS (i.e. Jordy Asher), released two new tracks from his debut mixtape, WinterSpringSummerFall. One of those tracks just happens to be the Beyoncé assisted jam ‘Dreams’, which serves as the closing track off of the mixtape. Beyonce’s sweet high notes and Boots’ smooth crooning sound like a match made in heaven, though it makes sense considering BOOTS was the producer/songwriter behind Beyoncé’s sneaky self-titled album that was released late last year.
BOOT’s has released the song with the intention of benefiting the charity Day One, an NYC organization devoted to stopping teen dating violence.
