The article talks a lot about her successes and explains that if Beyonce and other artist can emerge from their circumstances that regular black people can too. That i do agree with yet at the same time they've gotten where they've gotten but they didn't get there easily. The professor needs to understand that people are chasing the money of these artist, not them.
Either way black artist have always been on top of their game in music. They were just over looked! Beyonce is no different and outside of her hard work, she has to work even harder to not be the "expected" Black woman. Music can bring all colors lines together but if it was going to end racism, it would have done it with Michael Jackson. To me this is just another example of how white people will never understand racism.

I love this song! I listen to it on repeat a couple times a day. It damn near brings tears to my eyes each time. It really hits a spot for me. The video is just as good.

I really want to understand why Whoopi is defending Mel Gibson? I understand he is your friend, but you don't know how people are in relationships or be hide close doors. People are different around different people. Your loyalty as a friend is great, but this isn't your fight. Just support your friend in need. Your upset because Radar online is the messenger of all these tapes but are you upset that your friend isn't who you thought he was? Clearly it is his voice, that cant be denied. Your passing judgement on the wife's character but are you being sympathetic to someone who is SUPPOSEDLY being abused? Just like everyone else you don't know the story of whats going on, So calm down. There is always three sides to a story His story, Her story and the Truth! It'll all come out in due time! Just calm down! Geesh..
"When it comes down to it, i let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what i do, them I'm already better than them anyways." ~Marilyn Monroe
I don't think its a problem but actually Ive realized it is! But only on Mondays and for certain types of personalities or character traits. Not to toot my own horn but I don't know anyone who knows me that doesn't like me. (Toot). Ive never fooled anyone into believing i was something or someone that I'm not. I haven't ever felt i needed to be in competition with anyone because Ive always been my own person. Yet at the same time, I'm made to feel as if i need to be someone else to make them comfortable. There have been many cases where i attempted to make people comfortable with who i was but i don't act very well! Faking just isn't my cup of tea. With that said Ive also noticed that the same 'people' who are uncomfortable with me also mimic me in various ways. I don't know if they realize I've noticed... Awkward moment.
"People had a habit of looking at me as if i were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn't see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one." ~Marilyn Monroe
One thing I'm NOT or will EVER be is ashamed of who i am or apologetic about it. (I don't mind admitting when I'm in the wrong. Which is something different!) The argument however reminded me of one of inspirations; Marilyn Monroe. I've always been inspired by her because we have a lot in common and our thought processes are a bit similar, in ways. I remember one of her quotes and at that moment i realized that 'What the hell' is usually the best answer to questions. And for me the answer has been PEOPLE! Which is probably why I'm never shocked, moved, or overwhelmed by them. Which is both good and bad. With that blame it on being a Christian!
I didn't interrupt their argument, but to those two friends here's words of wisdom; "I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so eventually you learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."~Marilyn Monroe
