Re: SNL Holds Secret Audition to Fill Black Lady Gap - http://www.sinuousmag.com/2013...
"No worries. I think the issue is that "minorities" are still clamoring, begging to be included as if there aren't other options or ways to create those options if they aren't available. In 2014 I'd like to see us putting less attention on fighting to be included in the mainstream and more attention supporting our projects that live outside that stream and often catch mainstream attention anyways." - theComplex

Re: Shit We Don’t Need: Your Good Intentions & Racist African-Themed Parties - http://www.sinuousmag.com/2013...
"1) Dressing up as prominent figures of a country is not the same as throwing on some clothing you THINK is associated with that country. In this case, no one cared about the people, countries or cultures being misappropriated from because... PARTY! Who, from any African country, was the girl in the dirt brown makeup and American Indian headdress emulating? How about the guys in Flinestone outfits and brown makeup? Who the fuck are they emulating from Africa? 2) The Klan is an American terrorist group who has not limited itself disdain for people of the Negroid racial description. The fact someone thought this costume would be entertaining at a party which was allegedly to celebrate Africa is beyond me. Also beyond me is why the host wouldn't think to ask this person to leave. And furthermore, why she wouldn't she, for her own good, omit the pictures of them at this party? Because she didn't care. She thought it was funny, as apparently everyone else did, and because her little..." - theComplex

Re: African Beauty: Hollywood classics get photographic remake - http://www.cnn.com/2013...
"You can name plenty but haven't named one, instead you listed a bunch of Black pop artists and leaders -- which are not movie characters. Furthermore, you completely ignore that the outrage you speak of from the reverse would stem from centuries of continuously being stolen from while, at the same time, being disregarded and laughed at. It would also come from being constantly under-represented and misrepresented in media. With that said, there are Black women who saw Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's and wanted not necessarily to be HER, but to be in that role and wear those fabulous costumes. Tell me, which role starring a Black actress have White women gravitated toward wanting to emulate? I'm sure so many really connected with Jada Pinkett Smith's character in Set It Off... not. Also, the photographer made it clear that this project is a look at how these iconic moments would be portrayed if made in Africa, NOT replacing White bodies with Black ones. It's simple. Lastly, an..." - theComplex
