When I found out that Lupita won People magazines cover title, I was excited and I was even more excited to read the supportive comments. But I was let down. Every fucking thing that’s wrong with America’s beauty standards is proved correctly in the atrocious comments people had on Lupita. They argued that this was done only as a political statement, as if there’s no way in hell, that a dark skinned woman could be named most beautiful, without it just being as way to make a political  point.

Both white and black men argued that she is not a beautiful black woman, that Halle Berry or Beyonce deserved her place and I find it absolutely no coincidence that these african american women happen to be lighter skinned, thinner lipped, button nosed beauties. For fucks sakes, Beyonce might as well be a blonde white woman with a very dark tan.

You can try and tell me to relax, that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but thats not the fucking case here. Both whites and blacks have been brainwashed into thinking that white features are the only valid beautiful standards. Every single black celebrity woman that has been accepted as beautiful has Caucasian features. Tyra banks, Zoe Saldana etc etc. 

Black girls are told to straighten their hair with chemical relaxers or cover it up with weave. Then are ridiculed for it and deemed “fake.”

Black girls with lighter complexions feel higher of themselves because they are told to by society. Darker skinned girls are made fun, looked down upon and if she’s seen as beautiful she will have to get used to the “your pretty…for a black girl..” comments.

Black girls are told by their black male peers to watch out, that white girls asses are getting nice and plump, as if they are nothing without their curvy hour glass figures. 

Black men love white women because they’ve been told to. They see bringing home a white woman to meet their family as an accomplishment, as a way to make up for whatever it is they lack. When he walks pass his black friends with his white woman on his arm, he feels superior and noble. 

Black girls are asked why they have special articles and magazines called “Black is Beautiful” or “Be proud of your black skin”. They are told that its racists or exclusive and immoral, as if they asked to live in such a close minded society. Well you know what, cry me a river. You wanna see “White is beautiful” or “Be proud of your White skin”? Turn to every fucking tv channel or magazine page. 

Beautiful does not mean long hair. Beautiful does not mean thin nose. Beauty isn’t race. There are beautiful white women, black women, asian women, hispanic women, indian women, just like there are some of every race that isn’t exactly attractive. Get over it. Let Lupita and every other black girl and woman be the beautiful person she is without bringing her down.
