I am proud to once again be part of such a wonderful night celebrating the beauty, the talents and accomplishments of black women – it will be a show to remember!”

Regina King added, “It’s wonderful to be back co-hosting ‘BLACK GIRLS ROCK! with my dear friend Tracee and working alongside all my friends at BET and BGR.

    Yay! I love this hosting duo. They have great chemistry.

    I am going to be “Debbie Downer” for a minute.
    I hope that the “Black Girls Rock” ceremony continues with this formula: honoring Black women. Because I am sure there are some people out there that will start crying about how exclusive this organization is acting.

      Oh last year, twitter started responding with various white girls and black men tweeting why Black women DIDN’T rock and I believe they did #whitegirlsrock instead. It’s like seeing a pic of students holding a banner that said black Lives Matter and reading all the butthurt comments about Black folk killing each other, how White lives matter and just general asshattery. It’s ridiculous.

    • Michelle

      I remember.
      What I was talking about was the pressure that could land on Beverly Bond’s shoulders, from BET execs, to promote more “diversity” by including non-Black women (white, female philanthropists).

      Michelle, it’s funny because White folk honor themselves all the time, but when Black do it, they whine and cry about being exclusive. I guess it’s OK for THEM to be, but not everyone else because they don’t like being ignored.

      I hope that if there is pressure on Beverly, that she’ll stand her ground and continue the BGR brand anyway.

    • Michelle

      I hope Beverly would dig her heels deeper into the earth, if she does start to feel pressure. I think Black people, as a whole, need televised ceremonies like this one. We need to see what our philanthropists look like. I, personally, am digging the fact that BGR shows honor to philanthropists that doesn’t come from the same walk of life. Not every giver comes from the church.

    • Shazza

      Ahh, I get it. You may have a point there. I hope they don’t try to lean on her about that.

  • Melissa

    I love these two. I think they are the perfect hosts.
