Rapper Wale tried to show his love for black women with this controversial Instagram post apologizing for black men’s role in persuading black women to get super-sized behinds.
Image Source: There may have been a rumor that Tyson Beckford doesn’t like black women, but Beckford says “that is absolutely not true.”“I love black women and do date them. If you can’t really love your own, how can you really love others?
That rumor has followed me to this day, and black women have always been upset with me for that.”“That’s ridiculous, I got a strong Black woman: my mother, my sister. I love my people.“It’s unreal how quick people can try to flip on you and try to strip you down and make you into something that you’re not based off of a misquote or somebody’s words—or somebody else’s tweet.”“I just feel like, as Black men, we do have to be aware that, yo, every time we step out with some woman it’s setting an example for our daughters and it’s also representing something for our mothers.
She also opened up about the frustration she feels about other Black women criticizing her openness about her past with Elba and Me Mp Hi Tz.
“Yes, and I didn’t go into details about it out of respect for him,” Michelle said after being asked if “Maybe I Should Call” was about Elba.
And, it’s crazy — because when I told about my abuse, Black women attacked me. And then when the reports came out, [they’d say] ’oh, I always believed you! When I sang about what it was — it was Black women.
’ That doesn’t heal that scar that you called me a liar for two years and I’m trying to be a role model.” She added about Elba, “So, when it got to Idris, I’m once again [getting attacked]. They were @-ing him, and were like ‘Ew, she’s not good enough for you.’ It was bad, they’d [say things] like ‘Ew, he would never,’ or ‘Ew, why are you dating someone like that? Well, that’s not all that Michelle had to say about her relationship with Elba.
So yea, I may take a second look when someone dark and handsome walks past, but boy I was not ready for ‘Pound my yams: Emily Writes gets the horn for Idris Elba’.
Emily Writes, editor of Spinoff Parents, wrote this post on her personal blog in response to this slightly strange video featuring the Black British actor Idris Elba (born to parents from Sierra Leone and Ghana).
“I thought it was disgusting, the backlash that I got from Black women. You determine if it’s good, you determine if it’s bad.’” Michelle explained that she was hurt that people bashed her for dating Elba and said that she wasn’t good enough for him.
My whole career, the women that I fight for have been the women that attack me. “We parted on mutual terms, so I never bashed him and I never will.
In the thirst trap, Elba is playing up his sexuality, suavely dressed and drinking champagne, soliciting competition entries to win a potential date with himself.
