Tameka Raymond: Pretty For A Dark-Skinned Girl?

Tameka Raymond is taking to the Huffington Post to write an essay called "She's Pretty For A Dark-Skinned Girl..." about the treatment of dark skinned women and her personal issues with the standard of beauty. Check out this snippet:
I am a dark-skinned African American woman with features that reflect my ancestry. Debates regarding Light vs. Dark and other biases have plagued our race for years and continues to impact millions of Black women. The deeply rooted intra-racial contempt that lies beneath this inane "compliment" is the reason I've chosen to spark dialogue surrounding the topic of self-hatred in our culture. It saturates every aspect of our lives, dominating the perspectives of our generation as a whole. We culturally are so influential, at times inadvertently, that we affect all with the words we utter and the images we portray. It lends to the theory of systemic racism. I'm authoring this piece because I'm miffed by this reality and would like to share my views on these subjects. It is a fact that many African-Americans are often mixed with an array of other ethnicities (as am I), which allows for the spectrum of our features to be as distinctive and special as we are diverse. Why is it felt that the more diluted our traditionally African features become the more aesthetically acceptable we are considered? It was said in the 1960s and the sentiment seems to be forgotten, "Black is Beautiful." Wow, nearly 50 years later and is that now only meant for a specific shade? Nonetheless, I believe the beauty of our people and splendor of every individual is reflected in our varying features and hues. Often dark-skinned women are considered mean, domineering and standoffish and it was these very labels that followed Michelle Obama during the campaign for her husband's presidency and which she has had to work tirelessly to combat. I was appalled when I heard a Black woman refer to Michelle Obama as unattractive. The conversation turned into why President Obama picked her as his mate. No one in the witch-hunt made reference to the possibility that Michelle Obama was smart, funny, caring, a good person, highly accomplished or brilliant. Nor did they mention that she previously was President Obama's supervisor. If she were fair skinned, petite with long straight or wavy hair, would the same opinions be linked to her? I seriously doubt it. It is believed that for the dark skinned, dreams are less obtainable.

TV FAB: Sanaa Talks To YBF About "The Clevelands"+Gabby's New Producing Jobs

YBF caught up with fab chick Sanaa Lathan at Fox's TCA09 event last week. Sanaa is starring in the upcoming animated sitcom "The Clevelands"--the standout new addition to the Sunday line up and a spin off of the popular "Family Guy" series. We asked Sanaa what turned her on about the show: “I never really watched "Family Guy." I don't really watch much TV at all. But what drew me to the show is it was just simply funny…” She later when on to say, "It's great do a show where I can come in and not worry about my hair and my make up and just work.  It also still gives me time to do theater and my movies as well so it's a real treat.” Sanaa is the voice of Donna--the wife of Cleveland.  Despite not having much experience with animation, as opposed to movies, Ms. Lathan did a fabulous job during the reading of an episode we had the privilege of watching.  And we'll be watching the show as well....
