I am sorry you saw it as condescending. I was simply asking a question and making a point at the same time.

Drew M, I am trying to understand your objection to the topic and illustrations provided in my original post.

The video would expresses black's concerns about fitting in or glass ceilings but clearly the examples I posted are not women that need to be concerned with either. They have celebrity power that makes those point invalid.

In addition, early in their lives, they wore their hair more natural which means quite the opposite. At a time in their careers when perception was most critical, they were more natural.

Help me understand without meaningless gifs, what your perspective is. Oh, and try it without name calling.

I'm guessing you don't know that of the three pics you posted two of them regularly wear their hair naturally.

That fact doesn't make for good thread fodder.

Now knock that shit off. We had a good 'blacks wants to be white' thread going here.

I don't know about "regularly" looking at the ratio of the pictures and Beyoncé certainly isn't a blonde.

Kudos to Prince for changing his hair by the way.

Not when it's straight, fine and short enough to want to stick out in all directions. Don't ask me now I know.

Whoa whoa, I can see this is getting messy.

I hear all the time that tolerance comes from learning about the other perspective. I did not ask this as an antagonist. I asked it because it seems contrary to me. I was looking for an answer, or possibly a shared confusion.

I see it the same as I would a skin head dressed like RUN or a Mexican blasting Michael Buble music from his garage.

Both are big proponents of their race (hence Lulac, NAACP, La Raza, BET) and it would seem that if they are coming from a position of preservation, support, and promotion, they would not emulate the perceived oppressor.

Obviously I ruffled feathers. I don't think blacks want to be white, but I wonder if they would prefer to be less black? It seems hypocritical to me. We no longer live in a time where blacks should feel they have to "pass" in order to get treated better...or do we?

I would ask the same question of a pro-white spokesperson with an 8-ball jacket.


EDIT: If it will help, I'll ask to have the thread removed.
