Sigh...Are Negroes still on that good hair, light eyes BS in 2009

I suppose You Tube thought I would enjoy this video, because it features the always-fun B. Scott. Well, as happy as I am to see this online star get a bit of the big time, I am decidedly NOT happy about TV One a) breaking women (and men) down to spare parts to make an uber-Hollywood Frankenstein's monster, and b) seeming to traffic in old guidelines about what is beautiful. (Note the hair and eyes segments.)

Also, note to TV One, IMHO, LL Cool J's lip licking is gross. Guys who do that give me the willies.

Oh, and, as long as we're being shallow, any list of beautiful people that does not include Idris Elba? No list at all. Humph!

It must be my age that is feeding my comment, but I found that video to be the tackiest bit of trash I've seen in a long time. While watching the video, I asked myself, "Why did we (Black Folk) go there." Are we that shallow? My answere, "Hell, Yeah!"

Give me the whole man every time. Tami, you are right. Where was Idris Alba? Who has sexier eyes? Certainly, not Terence. Where was Denzel? Who can can make your heart skip a beat when he walks across that big screen as Denzel does.

I don't know B Scott, and I don't find B to BE any fun. B appeared to be "color-struck" with her choices. Sad, very sad.

Again, "TV-One, why did we go there?"

Tami,Agree with you on Idris Elba.

Black people go there because we still harbor those "white is right" misconceptions. It won't go away until we actively stop promoting those ideas in our own communities.

What a pathetic commentary on humanity. I just can't imagine thinking anything like this about women in general. What a superficial world we live in, just horrifying to watch. Straight people scary!

Yes, unfortunately, we are still stuck on this crap in 2009. I was yelling at the video, "Yo, Rick Fox is balding!!! Is that sexy???" Sigh.

Helloooo. I'm glad someone finally said it: LL Cool J's lip licking is gross.

I was beginning to think I was the only woman who felt this way...
