Once in a while they choose 'authentic' as opposed to 'exotic'. I guess it depends what mood their in that day.  IDK, it's a debate/conversation we will have forever :)

Yeah I don't get it, black girls aren't in demand any more? Damn, the booty shots aren't even enough to get us on anymore? Well I guess I'll cancel my appointment lol
Why would any woman let alone a black woman want to be in their video's all they call you is b****** and hoes or tell you to make your booty clap for them. Not all but 99% do.
Let's just say it's somebody else's turn.  Black women have been objectified and degraded in these videos for years.  I have no hard feelings about it being the next hoe's time to "shine"........good for her
Great point! and that's how I see if...however, this is a public announcement as to what "we" think is attractive....unfortunately, lots of young people watch this and these images soak into their brains.....unless your parents have shown you otherwise, you may start to believe this is what "pretty" is

I'm with you on that, I'm glad that we're not represented. I get tired of "us" only getting camera time when they want to showcase a phat ass, let them exotic hoes be their video hoes.

I noticed that when it is a 'love interest' or just a 'pretty face' it is an 'exotic' chick. When the woman is objectified it is a black female. Also, I see the bigger the video budget the fewer black models. This is not by chance...

When Black women were video models they were usually "official" as in they don't work for free, you need to contact someone else (an agent of sorts) to get in contact with them etc... Why would a cheap ass rapper want to go through all of that when he can call Maria or Yasmin to show up, spend hours, look pretty FOR FREE and directly through twitter?? Lol and we all know if there's no Black women in the video, there won't be any "booty shots" because well, who wants to see pancakes? *shrug*

I feel when such entertainers go the way of non representation of own if more of a political move, appeal to majority or mainstream and get "all" the money. If one is too radical then may become controversial anybody who wants to be popular will always bend to win. So I'm go wit it's strictly business....
