Don Bleek Supports Beyonce Blackface Images, Plus Shares His Perspective

A lot of people are very upset over the images of Beyoncé painted in a blackface for a French Magazine, which circulated online and caused a lot of controversy from sites such as The Huffington Post and MSNBC. According to the publication, the fashion shoot was to honor Nigerian musician and human rights activist Fela Kuti. Just like some critics are not buying it, I’m not buying the critics harsh and hateful comments. Read what I had to say below:

Again, every time a Black celebrity does something that mainstream America does not approve, it’s the worse thing in the f**king world. The images of Beyoncé in a Black face in a French Magazine was to honor Nigerian Musician and Human Rights Activist Fela Kuti. Why is there so much controversy surrounding this story?

Let’s not forgot about the controversial billboard that focuses on African-American abortions. Let’s not forget about the number of U.S. hate groups on the rise, report says. Why is mainstream America trying to conceal those stories?

I don’t see anything wrong with the images. Also, I think designers and the fashion world can take Beyoncé blackface images as a message to put more dark-skinned/African-American models on the cover and inside of magazines. For years, the fashion world has been playing the race card. Beside Naomi Campbell, I can’t think of a successful dark-skinned super model.-Don Bleek
