in today’s GTFOHWTBS news…
Naomi Campbell…really? Sit yo’ swirling ass down somewhere.
Naomi is crying racism and has demanded the chocolatiers, owned by Kraft Foods, remove the ad wherever it is displayed throughout Europe. “I am shocked.” the model says. “It’s upsetting to be described as chocolate, not just for me, but for all Black women and Black people. I do not find any humor in this. It is insulting and hurtful.”
Supporters of Naomi, particularly Operation Black Vote, is asking for Black people to stop buying the chocolate altogether. There is a mobilization to make Kraft apologize for the insensitive advertisement in America. Activists are calling on American Black “leaders” to take up the cause as well.
I hate to tell you this…maybe you didn’t get the memo Naomi, especially since you haven’t hung out with Black folk since 1973, but we often compare ourselves to chocolate. The first thing out of a brother’s mouth when he sees a fine ass sister with beautiful skin is “Damn I love me a chocolate sista.” It has NEVA been derogatory.
Every REAL Black woman compares herself to a flavor, some of us are caramel, some chocolate, some are butter pecan. But I got your card Naomi…is it because you have a chip on your shoulder? Trying so hard to fit in with the whites, you cringe at any reference to your true color? Bitch, you chocolate…deal with it. They paid you a compliment.
You SHOULD be Mad at that damn receding hairline you got. I don’t see you suing the makers of Yaki for fucking up your sidepiece.
You are a beautiful, chocolatey Black woman. Deal with it.
