Excuse me, Tyra

I watch the Tyra Banks show. Actually like it most of the time. Recently she's been doing multiple shows focusing on race and racism topics. She has done 2 or 3 shows about where have all the good black men gone and why can't black women find good black men and things like that. I don't understand. Tyra makes it seem like black men should only date black women. That if they should prefer another race, they're wrong and shouldn't think like that. She also says that black women can't find the right black men to marry. Do black women HAVE to only be with black men? In case you haven't seen Kevin, he's black. In case you haven't seen me, I'm white. Are we wrong because a black man is with me and I'm white? Are we not supposed to be together because some black women can't find a black man to be with? Tyra? Can you answer me these questions? She talks about doing shows to break race barriers, I think shows like this promote them. Am I going to get shit from people who think I stole a good black man from deserving black women? I'm confused, Tyra.

It does sound like that from what you've said. Maybe some more research is in order...

Tyra is a huge ball of hypocrisy. It's like she has all these episodes about how she is sooooo confident about her body, blah blah blah, then whenever a razzi takes a bad picture of her she's on the show in tears bitching about how bad it makes her feel. Shut the fuck up bitch, you are a supermodel.

She recently had a show about breastfeeding and told her guests it would be a positive show. I know the woman who was on it.. she said she was bombarded as if she was a fruitcake and Tyra just exploited her like mad. She was more concerned about how the woman's husband felt about "not being able to touch her breasts" (what the fuck?) than giving her child the nutrition it needed.

It was some serious bullshit. I can't stand her.

I have some serious issues with reverse racism. I've noticed it with Oprah as well. It's not about all the good white men or the good black men or all the good hispanic men ... it's about all the good men being taken by good women ;)
