Actor, singer and chronic personal PR nightmare-on-Twitter Tyrese has once again found himself getting bad press via the 140-charactr social network. While he usually gets roasted for his bad grammar and worse advice for the ladies, Jody got himself in hot water this time around after posting a new video of his which was almost  completely devoid of Black women (I peeped one in a corner). When his largely Black female follower-base took him to task, he informed them that its not his fault that the “best” women who came out weren’t Black.

How do I say this without snarking the women in this video…some of those women are only gonna be afforded “best” status by men who seem to have a fetish for the ‘exotic’.  Not that they weren’t pretty, but I doubt a White guy would have been so excited by the White women cast. And even if these were the most gorgeous non-Black women in the world, it takes a real asshole to say “Here’s a video from a Black artist with a largely Black female fan base. What kind of woman should we cast?” and comes up with that.

Anyway, forget Jody and this wack video. It wouldn’t matter if he cast Alek Wek or your cousin Keisha, this fool made a song with the Pied Pedophile of R&B AND Tyga. The girls were just the mayonnaise on the fail sandwich.

    Co-Sign Erin. You know we’ve discussed this before and I am totally over fighting for brown skin girls to be equally objectified. Being in a video is not the only standard of beauty these days. So the brown skinned girls weren’t the best at lip licking and booty shaking this time. Okay. Am I supposed to feel like I lost? Because I don’t.

    Tyrese’s logic is not always on target anyway, so his standards don’t really have any relevance in my life.

    Peace,

    I was one that had a comment & a brief sigh of disappointment. However, I did keep the comment brief because it was a double edged sword. Yes I want to see a reflection of myself as a Black Woman in Black Mens videos, however, not baby oiled down playing naked 3-way twister like I’m at Hedonism II.

    Tyrese saying “I’m Black as shit” like that’s a free pass for not representing your reflection in the mirror, is to making a racist statement about a Black person, then saying, “But my best friend is Black.”

    When I want to see definite reflections from my brother of me and the entire 16 shades of Black, I tune in to “Black Coffee”, “Round Da Way Girl”, ect.

    No other race/culture of men do videos with a predominate or all different race of women in the videos but Black men, unless their trying to cross over to us because were their target audience.

    OFF TYRESE!
    It isn’t about representation it’s about where your support lies. If even one %100 black women isn’t part of the best (even though most of his fans are black women) then neither is he. Not supporting him!
