Represent for us real black women. Tired of being "represented" by trash like Beyonce, and ratchet ass black women on reality shows. That isnt us.

So, started watching Devious Maids and The Bridge on FX and they both spoke on the EXCELLENT point that white people suck.
Devious Maids had a mexican maid die but she was on page 42 of the paper, and the maids were like had she been a white women it would be page one. Then on The Bridge, ONE white female judge is murdered and 250 mexican girls are murdered but the task force comes out to solve the white women's murder and the 250 mexican girls are just ignored, no investigating and they had a mystery man asking why does one white women get so much attention.

Could it be, has white people's selfish time finally come to an end. Is the media finally going to shine a light on their cruel selfishness vs. making stupid movie like The Help and Blind Side where they are fake "heroes."

WRONG....Gabby a home wrecking HOE. Fuck her and her momma slut!

Go Kerry!!

@1:16pm - I doubt it. Hollywood is still EXTREMELY WHITE, and as long as they're calling the shots, you'll always have movies involving negroes happily starring in roles subservient to whites. Speaking of heroes, you'll also always have movies with white men conquering far away lands (like Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai), planets, and even zombie life (like Brad Pitt in World War Z)

Kerry is a good actress unlike Gabby. Halle is average but I still like her, even though her personal life has always been a mess. Gabby and Halle are in different leagues, why people keep trying to stick, 'I act like a retarted white teenager' Gabby break a union in the mix? When it comes to talent, Gabby belongs in the same categorie as Beyonce Knowles, all hype no substsnce.

I just started watching Scandal and I'm hooked. The writing is superb and Kerry was made for that role. This should be a no brainer because Kerry's got this in the bag. As for Gabrielle Union- no diss at all, but there is no way she turned down this role. She was passed up for the better actress.

^^^^Every last word!

@2:06 Gabby said out her own mouth that she was not chosen for the part...she didn't turn it down. Watch that Oprah special again. She states that all the black women in Hollywood within a certain age group read for the part.

They chose Kerry and not because Gabby turned it down.

Congratulations Kerry! You are a role model for the future negro bed wenches!
Halle Berry got an Oscar for letting Billy Bob "make her feel good" before her husband was executed. Maids, butlers,slaves and negro bed wenches. Thanks Hollywood! ;-)

Blind Item #6

This A list celebrity/singer made a deal with her husband. She says that she was really wanting to be with another person again and they agreed that she could see women as long as she was not caught. No men this time though.

Yeah buddy!!! Congrats Kerry

Anyone noticed this black woman played a slave who was raped in a movie for Quentin Tarentino and now she has a tv show????!!!!!! Just like Halle getting an Oscar for a sex scene in a movie where she played the wife who Fuchs the white man who executed her husband???!!!!

Is that the pay-off, black folks?????

Sacrificing your dignity for a trophy????
Wake up!!!!!!!
