Pardon Me 25 days ago
As a foreign white person living in America, the whole racial tensio thing has been getting out of hand. I hate white people and black people throwing their complexes on to me. Both black and white people are hoping I'm a racist, which I'm not even ready for. I don't know either party enough to be able to pick a side lol. But I'm leaning towards really disliking Americans in general. I vote them the most annoying nationality ever. For sure. Anyways, it's really annoying seeing every black woman becoming famous and all the comments are like wow, she has really great akin! So radiant! Yes, a lot of black people have nicer skin than white people. This is an observable fact. But does she need your ass-kissing? Most certainly not. Just say My ancestors messed up, but I'm okay, at least I'll try to be, and move on!

Stunning. She's become so not awkward or insecure that I wonder what season three of Insecure might be like (if there is a season three. I hope so!) Also: if you're a fan of Insecure & haven't watched Awkward Black Girl on YouTube, or if you don't get HBO so you can't see Insecure, go now and watch ABG. It's like a book you can't put down. Go Issa!

When asked who she is rooting for at the Emmy's, she responded: 'anyone black' Imagine if a white actor had responded 'anyone White' ? Therein lies the hypocrisy. She is a *RACIST* and will *NEVER* be called on it, in fact she will be lauded for being anti-White by the (((media))).
Dark Witch 25 days ago
Omniscient 1- Now, here is the part where you try to hate on her success like that pathetic creature that you are, I find that laughable. I find it laughable how jealous you are, triggered and angry you are. Stay mad, bitch. There goes that REAL reason that you are so pissed at her, and jot that fake ass accusation of her being 'racist'. Thank you for exposing your self and people lie you on the world wide web. She build her own empire, started from humble beginnings making youtube skits, discovered by Shona Rhyms and then HBO. What the fuck did you do today, but bitch and whine.about her? and is respected for that. Nothing you can do will take that away. You just made me like her even more! You are just a bitter racist no-body with no power or voice that anyone gives a shit about. I do did not even bother reading the rest of your retarded post. This is why people like you get ignored LOL.
Dark Witch 25 days ago
Omniscient 1- First of all, her show is still fairly new and there are plenty of good shows that have yet to win a damn Emmy, just like there are plenty of movies that a great and have yet to win an Oscar! Not to mention both the Oscars and Emmy's where struggling for rating and respect. I don't I've a shit about the Emmy;s and her show is still good with good ratings, so she has plenty of time to win a damn Emmy. And what the fuck does any of that have to do with shit your first post was about or my response. how does this even tie in? So, now you wan't to deflect form your bullshit statement and fake rage? Stop pulling the race card you fucking cry baby LOL God, you must be dumb white trash. Where is this compelling argument that serves that she is racist? Or did you just feel like bitching and whining for no reason? If the host did not bring up race, SHE would not have had to even address it. Your dumb ass knows nothing. She is very very popular and extremely relevant right now, especially among people 30 and younger, has been on damn near every talk talk, has gotten all kind of media coverage which is why her show staring off a hit-idiot. What the fuck are you even babbling on about? Are you.venting? God, you sound like your having a heart attack, filled with so much hate LOL. She is far form 'C' list, you bitter simpleton. It is losers like you, who motivate winners.

Omniscient 1 I love her show, sorry to burst your bubble but you don't set the standards. I can't watch most of your stupid ass white shows which don't even have black passerbys. She is a racist? How many people did she mow down in her car? Jews will not replace us.
Omniscient 1 28 days ago
Dark Witch Your argument is ridiculous. Her series was rightly *IGNORED* at the Emmys because it is garbage, I actually tried to watch it and couldn't make it past the 10 minute mark. She is just another race baiting, anti-white, zero talent, C list celebrity whose entire career was built on racial animus. Your claim that she isn't racist is laughable, following is additional evidence. Here is what she said about how Hollywood is reacting to her racist diatribes, and I quote: I'm happy to report that we're making progress. People are dying (laughter) “Roger Ailes just died. He needed to go! That's great that he died! As time goes on… unfortunately we won't be able to take advantage of it like the younger generation, but it's happening and I feel like there are people in positions of power who wouldn't have had an opportunity in the past that have opportunities now and who have, a firm vision and are intent on hiring the people who haven't been hired in the past (read exclusively black people) I'm very optimistic on that. White People die every day, so it's great.” Set and match, quit living in denial.

So she's actually African and not black then? damn I thought she was an american black person. To the haters, yea recent african immigrants aren't different from any other immigrants, they got way more resources than the decesndants of slaves in u.s. they don't even consider us equal. They even have youtube videos sterotyping us like white people do. My uni hardly has any blacks that aren't from recent immigrants, naijas, haitians, habeshas, Ghanaians, s. Africans, Sudanese, Kenyans like damn Africa is developed because they're educated af. They live in nice areas. The slave descendants still marred in poverty. This is in Cali Edit: yep she's senegalese and her mom from Louisiana probably creole.
Beamers Beamer 25 days ago
Jane Does yes they buy into the 24/7 anti black propaganda
Dark Witch 1 month ago
Actually, I know quite a bit about it! Anyways, I already stated not all immigrants are the same AND I stated not all Africans immigrants are the same, can you read?? AGAIN, just because her mom is from Louisiana, doesn't' make her creole! Especially when the majority who live there ARE NOT EVEN CREOLE! Being 'Africa' (you generalized all Africans) is not one big country, nor is being african or creole, a race. Creoles are also 'slave descendants' as well, if we are talking about black creoles and mullato creoles! There are also white creoles too. What do you not get? And what does her mom, possibly being creole, have to do with anything?? What weight does that hold in regard to anything? Where is your family from?
Jane Does 1 month ago
Dark Witch her mother is from Louisiana likely Creole, her dad Senegalese. It ain't the same and you know nothing about it. Immigrants from Mex come from different states and face different issues. And not all Latino are mexican. Nor are all of them poor. Costa Rica is very wealthy and there are disparities within each country. Bottom line she's not a slave descendants nor had she experienced half of what slave descendants have been through. Girl bye

Dark Witch can you read. I literally put ghanian, habasha, etc so clearly you don't understand any of the countries in Africa or their cultures
Dark Witch 1 month ago
Africans are not like any other immigrant, Africans don't all come from the same countries and tribes, or nationalities. Certain african groups are doing better then others, not all. Africa is a continent, Mexico, for example is a country. See the difference. 1% out of hundreds and thousands, of Africans coming to America doing 'ok' done't equate to being wealthy nor reflect the majority of or Africans of that particular group or the whole continent. Lastly, not everyone form Louisiana is 'creole' and 'creole' is also not a race. I should know. Not all blacks are descendants have slave ancestors(and many who do, are still wealthy), just like not all african are con cured peasant of Europeans and Arabs, coming from their colonies in Africa.

Mr. J - So, you are on yet ANOTHER post hating on this women? You sound like some jealous he-bitch. Why are you so obsessed with hating this women. This is the second post I have seen you troll under, ESPECIALLY, when someone says how beautiful she is, and for some reason-this triggers you. I already know what gender and race you are, because you pathetic sector of males can literally be found all over youtube hating on black women-specifically. Again, pathetic. I ask you the same question, are you a grown man or a child?

Again, you don't speak for all men. The show this woman produces is evidence of your inaccuracy; all the lead female characters are dark-skinned beautiful black women. There are plenty of beautiful dark-skinned women in pop culture, you're just clearly too racist to see them. I'm done commenting, feel free to be done as well.
