Should Beyoncé be Held Accountable for Doing Black face?

Recommended Posts

Pictures have resurfaced of Beyoncé in full b lackface. The majority of the comments are critical of a light skinned/half white woman painting herself several shades darker to channel the late Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.

This raises a valid question — is it acceptable for a black woman to do black face? Some say no because of the racial tensions and inequality that exists within the black community between light skinned and dark skinned black women. Others say this is art and the rules don’t apply to Beyoncé since she is half black. Thoughts?

I’ve spoken my peace about it and she should 100% be held accountable because even during slavery, light skinned folks were picked to be house servants because they were lighter skinned. They used to run all sorts of tests. Even black people discriminated against darker skinned folks and painted doors of churches to see who was light enough to enter. Like others said in their tweets- they could’ve just hired darker skinned models to convey the same message Beyonce was trying. 

Usually I would’ve stayed quiet on topics like these, but again, I’m tired of the hypocrisy. People are so quick to discriminate and talk **** about Latinas like JLO and Camila, but look the other way when a black woman like Beyonce does something problematic. 

And yes, where are the brave ones that scream cancel culture all over the other threads? Interested in having a discussion :mattafact:

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again—Black face is black face. It is never okay. :holduplisten:

She should be held accountable.

It's like every community has a discrimination in their own community even if they are different but still the same.

Even in my country dark skinned brown people are discriminated by a little less brown people.

In gay community, there it bottom shaming then there is top shaming. Then there's the whole LGBT hating each other's letter community. God i can't wait for the time when the whole gay top/bottom shaming becomes a movement and see the look on the faces of people who are supporting the prejudice against black people meanwhile being hypocritical. That time, the amount of receipts i'll see will be something else.

Never ever ever, why? Because she is Beyoncé and the GP and her nasty fan base will forget this even happened in a quick sec:mattafact:
. After all... they are the same people who worship her and think she is the goddess of music and is the female Michael Jackson :mattafact:

And Beyonce is half black?!  :gloriascary: Since when? :gloriascary:

Whenever it’s convenient for her.

Or when she stands to profit off the black community.

No. Industry plants rarely have to answer for anything they do.

Look at them side stepping this thread.

Watch them eventually come here with short "unbothered" replies or maybe just downvote our posts and then proceed to type long 4ss novels on why another artist is problematic or just be a pot stirrer. :tiffdrink:

Beyoncé is above everything. She could steal the sun, take the credits of Macarena, release an album full of silence, vote for Trump, whatever. She is #uncancellable.

can i have some clarifications? black face is discriminatory because was a way to make fun of black people but in this case she is celebrating her black ancestories (4 was an album inspired by Fela Kuti, an african singer), so why these thinks are judge on the same way?
