I'm tired of it!!!!
They are everywhere! In our music videos! In our movies! In our ads/commercials!

Everytime a black man is in some form of entertainment you never see them with a sistah, and if its a sistah she's half near white.

I have nothing against them but yhou would think with the diversity we have they would switch up.

I just finished looking at a new Mario music video on 106 and park and he had nothing but latinas in his video. A DAM/N SHAME! You don't see Latin men and white men or Indian men with sistahs in their videos!!!!! I don't get it. I'M MAD.

Then black women should start only casting latino men in their videos and just say forget about black men.

You know what Queen, Black male media is also one reason why
non-black latinas, asians and other races of women feel superior to us as black females.

ok, I checked out two of those links. The second video looks ridiculous. The guys in it are unnattractive. I have never liked grown looking men with the cap on backwards. It looks stupid. Many BM want White women or white looking latinas.

I don't know what to say. I am a black woman and I think that it is okay if they have those women in it. What can we do about it? It is out of our control. How do you know there aren't any black women casting these women? Relax it's only the media. When you look at the media more than what it should be then it will stress you out. Women of other races have always been in videos where the artists was black, so shouldn't we be used to it now? Just turn the blind eye and ignore it. We don't need the media, or any celebrity for that matter, for validation of our beauty.

Rhiana had white men in her video. Ciara and Justin Timberlake were in a video together. Ciara was even in a video with Enrique Iglesias. Beyonce had a white man in her video.

If we keep complaining it really won't change anything or it will give them more motivation to cast women of other races ONLY. Then we really won't be seen in any of our media. I guess black people just want to show more diversity.

If black female artists want to cast more non-black men in their videos just as much as black men do then they can do that in a heart beat. I'm sure it won't even be a problem for them.

Let's not make this an issue for us, because then people will only continue to think that we are inferior(not that it should matter what others think). What I am trying to say is we don't need the media to validate our beauty, they didn't give birth to us or create us so they have no say.

Please lets just drop this issue and leave it alone, because they will continue to cast non-black women in their videos. Life shouldn't revolve aorund the media, and it's shouldn't control your life or emotions either.

Famous African-Americans cater to other race while others don't. When was the last time you saw some famous white women, Latina with a black man in her video.

meh....anyways, I can understand why she's mad.

I remembered back in the day.......we were complaining, that it was less black women......and to many white women........until, Hip Hip came along. Now.......we have black women....little darskin women.......a lot of lightskin women, and maybe, brownskin sistas.........with a lot of latina women.......for me. I don't really have an issue with latina.....and asian women. But i would like to see more of us........because it's a part of black culture.

But what's even crazy. We are the ones who are buying the brothas........cds. They say it's mostly white.........maybe......but it's also.....a lot of black women who are also consumers. Especially, with R & B music.

Like one of the posters said above. There's definitely, is not enough pride. And that is sad.

I think when pride is lacking......there is no way you feel good about who you are........just to please.......people have more respect for you when you take pride in who you are.........

BW are stupid. As long as you accept this behavior from BM they will not change. Stop supporting them. Demand BW to cast only Latino & non black men in their video, demand Bw mags. to show non black male models or you will refuse to support them. BM have no problems catering to non bw, we need to cater to non black men or stfu and take what BM dish out. Just stop complaining only {without any actions}!

funny i didn't hear you complain when justin timberlake was pimpin ciara, janet jackson, or rihanna in their videos. i guess it's cool for a white man to embraces beauty outside of his races and objectify black women, but a black man has no such luxury. you ladies sound so insecure with this stuff. if you hate black men just come out and say it. we are big boys we can take it. funny how a group of people who have made it the norm to have hair that resembles another group, complain when their men are attraced to that other group. black women love to say they straighten their hair and wear weaves because thats what black men like. they say black men don't celebrate natural hair styles. so my question is why do you do it to your daughters????? is it because thats what black boys like? are you altering your daughters hair (and her self image) to please young black boys, our your inner hatered of the hair it's self. you see black women love to say bm are conditioned by the eurocentric standard of beauty. if thats the case wouldn't you want to catch the boys before they are "conditioned" and present them with an alternative beauty image.

i don't know ONE black girl who got their first perm or weave on their OWN choice........it was their BLACK MOTHER!

to sum up my rant....ladies you put they self hate in these kids long before the media gets a hold of them!

Yeah thats nothing new. When you look black music videos you see black women and nonblack women but when you look at white artists, they don't have a bunch of black women in their videos. Stupid reality shows are the same way, look at real chance of love, many nonblack women but look at say rock of love, no black women accept for one token black and we all know she is not winning. Sadly it really is nothing we can do about it other than no support the music. Some people making these shows and putting these nonblack people in them are black people themselves sometimes sadly. I heard of a black woman herself that would put only lightskin or nonblack women in things because she felt regular black women wouldn't reach their target market. Strangly, her target market were AA's.

Dropping the issue sounds like a straight up cop out. If it ever got to a point where they didn't cast black women in the media, what would be the point of black people supporting it? We would have to be really dumb to continue so they should make a huge issue out of it until things changes. It seems like thats the only way things every change, by making an issue of it not by forgeting about it. If that was the case, we probably be still sitting at the back of the bus with that kind of thinking.
