For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
Black women forget that exotic women are partially some kind of trophy. It's not personal it's a history thing. Try reading the Willie Lynch Letter then you'll get some kind of clue. That includes dark skinned vs light skinned and explains the i

this s*** is sad. that response was right on the money though.
I want to first say I understand where everyone is coming from and your opinions have a lot of validity to them because of the obvious constant struggle in this society.
Now my opinion is that this is a damn music video promoting sex and promiscuity. Is that how you want black women featured? People are mad b/c the woman who is featured in this explicit song is not black and yet if she was, how would this uplift the community? What would it teach our sons and daughters? That she got $500 to be all over this man, hey sweetie, when you get 18, you can do that too??? If these songs weren't so damn explicit and sexually suggestive, then I can understand, but since a majority of them are about sex, drugs, money, and violence on BET, how is that uplifting the community?
When I have a child, my son/daughter will not be watching BET, will not be watching MTV, they will be watching CNN, BBC, HIstory Channel, Nova, Discovery Channel. and when the commercials come on, they will see commercials with women and men of all shades (b/c ad agencies are getting it right now a days), news broadcasters of all shades and a president, because he will be our president for 8 years, of just the right shade that everyone can identify with.
Forget RACE, look at the people, and as an adult, I love Jeremih's song but it is not an example for my (future) kids, its an adult song and adults should censor what their children watch, so that they help them grow. But if you can't forget race, pick your battles. Being a latina, I can't stand any music videos that show women of all shades being exploited for their butts and curves, but I'm not going to fight the music video industry b/c the songs out do not represent what i feel is the example I want set forth. I would fight the ad agencies, the toy makers, and news reporters, b/c thats what a majority of television is and in those I want equality and equal representation.
