To the person who posted about having a "black" only magazine.  Essence was founded when blacks were "not allowed" on the cover of any magazines.  Yes times have changed.  But i dare you look at magazine covers and see how many blacks are on the front page.  Don't hate- Celebrate!

I think Beyonce is a beautiful and talented woman.  I also think she is overexposed in the media.  She is becomming more and more like Kim Kardashian.  Really tired of seeing either of them on every magazine, website or tv show.  Give us a little break please.

another Racist event.."Black Only." Tell me how any event, magazine, awards, colleges that are based on the color of the skin exclusivly is not racist? It is the "pure definition" of racism. I want equality and since Obama like to ban and take away our Constitutional about shutting all racist businesses and institutions down for Discrimination.
