Black People Need To Stop Claiming Evelyn Lozada
Evelyn Lozada was featured in Vibe Magazine’s “New Role Model” Cover this week and i’m almost certain it sent black people back 100 years.
The coincidental part of it all was the fact that I was about to get a subscription to Vibe Magazine a couple of weeks before this cover, but my sister made me change my mind because it’s “black trash”.
Unfortunately, they lived up to my sister’s comments. Putting Evelyn Lozada on the cover, labelling her a “New Role Model” made me feel queasy at first. Particularly because Vibe magazine is centred around African American Culture and Evelyn Lozada is way too ratchet to be putting her in a positive light. After getting over the initial shock of seeing Evelyn centre fold, I was able to shift my eyes to the right saw Chrissy Lampkin and her awful leg scribbles in some fish nets. Then there was just a feeling of disappointment. FYI Vibe, these are not role models
Last time I checked Evelyn was Puerto Rican, and while I love my Puertoricanas, Evelyn’s recent jumping over tables; throwing bottles; throwing glasses, throwing purses; calling her once upon a time best friend all kinds of bitch, isn’t really putting her and other Boricuas in a good light. Unfortunately we (yes i’m black) have Tami so there’s a lose lose situation, but the less ratchet and embarassing folks we claim the better.
Do we really need to be claiming this woman just because she was Antoine Walker’s side chick? Really Vibe? You just dissolved the little morals you have left with this drain cleaning broad?
According to thyblackman
Given that Vibe Magazine is now in the profitable business of exploiting modern day minstrel shows to destroy yet another generation of black children, perhaps they will consider a few other prominent African Americans to add to their role models list…Flava Flav, OJ, Karrine Steffans, The man who got 30 kids with 11 women…”
I’m not taking away anything from Kandi and Tamar because I really think they deserve to be on the cover. Chrissy…I have no words, but Evelyn WE’RE NOT CLAIMING YOU.
