Vibe Magazine Feb 2001 Destiny’s Child
Do we still need to say Destiny’s Child is on the cover? Or can we just say Beyonce is on the cover? So here’s a interesting comment in the reader’s opinion section talking about last months issue. Caren Rubin-Brown (Grundy, VA) writes: I’d like to voice my opinion on a statment in the article on Shyne: “He is caramel-colored, nothing like the big black nasty-looking motherfucker you expect him to be.” What the hell is wrong with this picture? I’ll tell you. Black people are constantly subjected to bullshit comments that associate words like “nasty,” “sorrow,” “death,” “evil,” and ‘diabolical” with “black.” Let me remind you that black is beautiful. Also let me remind you that Shyne is black. So what in God’s name is that statement supposed to mean? Come on! White people give us enough of this shit, and we have made it this far, but to hear it from your own people really pisses me off. Remember, Lola Ogunnaike, attitudes that keep us divided along color lines are just as detrimental to black unity as white racism.
Marshall Faulk was on the cover of Playstation 2’s NFL Gameday, was there a Gameday curse? Someone look into that.
