Alicia Keys made a very ignorant and conceited comment on the 2008 BET awards. Alicia Keys said, "Black is beautiful, everybody wants to be like us". What in the world does she think she is? What in the world does she mean by "everybody wants to be like us" In what sense though??????
Race, color, talent, What!!!!
All races; White, Latino, Asian, Indian, etc. I am sure are all proud of who they are and their cultures.
Keys, needs to wake up and smell the coffe and look around her fellow celebreties all over the U.S. and the world and she will be stunned with the talents she would find.
A good example of great talent so she can get a little taste are: Fergie (raps and sings different genres), Shakira (sings,dances and of course sings in two languages), Selena (sang in 2 languages)the list goes on and on.....
If she means soulful voices, the previously mentioned got it, but if she wants a closer example then she wouldn't fill Mary J. Blidge's shoes nor Tony Braxtons and most recently; Keisha Cole.
Alicia,
Stop being so ignorant. Again, wake up and smell the coffee.

ms.keyes is not a racist.she loves her mother and mentions her mother whenever she gives an interview.i feel that she is just more comfortable around blacks,and is more in touch with her "black side".she was raised around all kinds of people growing up,as her mom lived in a racially mixed neighborhood.maybe most of her friends were black....who knows.point is,she was just stating the facts.the reason why she made such a point to mention all the beautiful black people was to get a sense of love and unity among blacks,seeing how this is our time.outside those doors where the awards were held,lay the mean streets of reality.she was just basking in the peace,love,and togetherness of that special night.that's all.no need to take offense. ms.keyes loves her white side and her black side.there's no need to get ugly.

Alicia Keyes is not racist-she is half itallian.SHe knows though, that she is half black and will be seen as black and she tightly embraces her blackness, and the fact that black is beautiful.She knows what the hate from non-blacks is all about.I think that is what she is referring to.Many People are obsessed with black folks, because they are fascinated by us, fear us, and are disgusted and intrigued by us.That's why they be hating. Most people are happy with who they are, but she is probably referring to the haters.Alicia keys is VERY intelligent, and she knows whats up-thats my girl.She is the best singer out there, in my opinion.

I love people who will not admit her statements were inappropriate. It is such a double standard if she (or someone who was completely white) said during the grammies about how white is beautiful and everyone wants to be like us there would have been an uproar. To the black posters can you please think how you would feel if the situation was reversed? I'm am so sick of everyone who is not white getting a pass, if we want equality lets have it.

P.S
I am so proud to be white, we are responsible for "almost" every upward surge in mankind since the beginning, other races want to be like us because we are the best. We own "almost" all the wealth in the world, we control the world.

My statements are correct, but I am sure many of you found them inappropriate, oh well, I didn't set the precedent.
Just being proud like Alicia

True and I never implied only non blacks hate.Many blacks do too, its a hateful world. I was only adressing this particular situation and Alicia's comment.That two white crows character is a perfect example of a non black hater. He is always in the AA forum talking junk, yet he can't stay away from us.

Well, I said she isnt racist.She should have chosen her words more carefull because if it was reversed, I have no problem admitting there would be an uproar.
Now, your other statements were NOT correct. Enough with the backpatting, lol.There are many contrubutions such as:
Air conditioning unit
lawn mower
establishment of blood plasma bags and blood banks around the world
automatica gear shift
refrigerators
elevators
cellular phones
clothes dryer
potato chips
many uses for peanuts(not just peanut butter), many uses for the sweet potato and pecans
traffic lights
fire escapes
fire estinguisher
gas masks
mailboxes
horseshoes
lawn sprinklers
spark plugs
stethescopes
and much much much much more things blacks contributed. I am tired of typing right now and even more tired of the holier than thou/pat ourselves on the back people who are always trying to understate the black man's worth and competency, in the name of overstating their own value and competency.
SICKENING.
I know it feels good to acredit progress in america to mainly the white man.This nation was built and progressed largely from slave labor.Sitting down barking orders and commands while slaves do all the work does not equal contributing to me!!!!!!!!!!
Some people are predisposed to holier than thou syndrome
and have a deep rooted paranoia that makes them aim to be better than and preach that they are better than the next man.

Well other races of people do imitate black's culture. Not just hip hop, it goes way back. Even today you see way more white kids into hip hop then rock or anything else. Its not racist to say whites and others want and try to be like blacks, its a fact particularly for the youth. If keys indentifies herself as being black, it makes me like her more verses biracials wanting to be white.

Fergie hasn't been talented since 1994!?

You know what, the first time I heard her in "wild orchid" I thought she was a black woman.

I don't think Alicia Keys is racist. I thought she simply stated her opinion. Although, as a celebrity with her status, Keys, should be alittle more careful because she is loved by all nationalities and ethinicities.

I understand where she is coming from because most pop singers try to imitate rhythm and blues singers,jazz singers and blues singers. Alot of these pop singers are white. Maybe Keys was suggesting musically, other races and ethinicities try to imitate black culture?

Here are a list of recent pop singers who have a r&b,jazz and bluesy sound:

Adele
Amy Winhouse
Sarah Bareilles
Brooke Hogan
Kate Nash
Stacey Ferguson aka Fergie
Justin Timberlake
Robin Thicke
Christina Aguilera
Britney Spears
most of those british "pop" singers period!
etc
