Beyonce knowles and TI

Rap mogul Clifford "T.I." Harris weighed in on the controversy surrounding Beyonce Knowles's 'Black Panther' publicity stunt at the Super Bowl.

Protesters plan to hang Beyonce in effigy at a rally outside NFL headquarters in NYC on Tuesday, Feb. 16.

According to Us Weekly, the protesters will demonstrate loudly against Beyonce's un-apologetic tribute to the sometimes violent Black Panther activist group that peaked in the 1960s.

An airport hustler for gossip tabloid TMZ caught up with T.I. and asked him for his thoughts on the planned anti-Beyonce protest.

"Rudy Giuliani said [Beyonce's performance] was an attack on cops," said the hustler.

"It's an attack on cops that attack our people," T.I. replied, while raising his fist in a black power salute.

"I don't think that Beyonce was being malicious in any way in her demonstration," said the father of 7. "And I feel that anything that is done to demonstrate against her pure demonstration is gonna lose in the end."

The rapper tied the online activist group Black Lives Matter to Beyonce's stunt, saying "Everything that we're doing as far as the Black Lives Matter movement, it is to speak out or fight against unnecessary, unlawful deaths of our people by people who supposed to be put in a position of authority to protect and serve our people."

The hip hop tycoon added, "So if you are against that, then to me, that is un-American.

Beyonce and her black-clad dancers paid homage to the Black Panthers while performing her song "Formation," which some of her fans mistook as empowering black people.

Many are suspicious that Beyonce waited until she was 35 to suddenly reveal her activism, while at the same time promoting her upcoming "Formation" Tour.

    Fawk you Rudy Giuliani. How many Black men and women were killed by police while you served as Mayor of NYC??? How many Black men and women were beaten by police while you served as Mayor of NYC??? Out of all of the cases where men and women were killed and beaten by police, how many of those police were actually charged and convicted for their actions and crimes??? Don't worry, I'll wait.....

    So with that being said, can we say that your performance as Mayor was an attack on Black people???

    Black people need to move on and stop talking about it. It's just... if people want to have a discussion about things automatically they are crazy and bringing up the past.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Sure did happen while he was in office. He was in office from 94 - 01. Abner Louima was assaulted in 97.

    Remember Amadou Diallo? He was shot and killed in 99. 4 plain clothed cops fired 41 shots, he was hit 19 times, and all 4 were aquitted.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Why are black people taking Beyonce's side? Is it simply because Beyonce wants to claim the black race now? Beyonce is anything but black and proud. Have fans taken a close look at this supposed proud to be black woman? She bleaches her skin, gets nose jobs, and has altered her looks via wigs and make up to appear more Caucasian. Besides the lyrics to this song have nothing at all to do with the visuals. There is nothing remotely black and proud about Beyonce, IMO.

  • imright

    hopefully the skrimps r bigger!!!

  • SameoleJ

    Plus the fact that she retired herself, went and found a wonderful man and is happy.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    What's beautiful about it is alot of people of all colors are willing to pay the 500 because they recognize when wrong is wrong. Only fools would think otherwise. Let me go enjoy my stay in NC.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    And the city should pay it since they hired the idiotic ass cop that shot him.

  • Yoni

    They failed. Would you pay for shotty (no pun) work?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I already regret this comment...

    I'm assuming the all black, berets, and afros are supposed to be reminiscent of the Black Panthers. I get it, I suppose. For me personally, the Black Panthers (men and women) represented strength, dignity, awareness, and consciousness. Everything that Beyonce does is hyper-sexual to me. Does that make sense? To me, her dancers look "natural"...and darker than usual. That is all. The same skin tight, barely there clothing....this time they just have afros and deeper pigmentation. Not knocking it...she's a performer. But I don't see it. Everything about this "Formation" phenom is over my head.

  • Butter CreamFactory

    But we all know she doesnt need any propmtion or free marketing... remember hwe last album..lets not forget!!!

  • JerseyMom

    We real community activists have been 'in formation' a long time ago. Since at least 2007, Attorney Gina McCauley, who I met through the comment section of Sandra Rose website and who helped me start blogging, has been at the forefront with using social media to bring about social change. Remember BET's Hot Ghetto Mess show boycott. Please check out whataboutourdaughters dot come website archive. We were checking everyone on their foolishness on her podcast.

    Sigh, I miss those days tho. Perhaps we can do a special reunion episode, but I have not spoken to Gina in years.

    Black women doing anything other than being quiet
    Unwed mothers- yes, even Monica has to be included; her 1st two count
    KK- Yes, Kanye, I am talking about your wife

    Any time Anyone BLACK speaks out on racial injustice YT people get upset, they just dont get it!! racial injustice is still strong today as it was 100 years ago, so we have to keep talking about it .. They mad at her " performance" because she paid Homage to the Black Panter Party , she was just saying happy 50th anniversary to the panther party! Thanks Bey and Jay for donating 1.5 million to the "Black lives matter foundation" last week! Oh, and for the water wells in Africa!

  • nucynu25

    Right, i get your point . No luv lost

  • SameoleJ

    That was rude.....I mean yeah you are typically a bit of an ass, but that was not necessary.

  • Sucker Free

    White people are mad because Beyonce got more press than the Superbowl, Peyton Manning, and Coldplay COMBINED

    plus B and her crew was getting it you know pink toes cant dance and have no flava they were outraged with jealousy and envy they all ran to get tanned and to take some dance classes afterwards. The killer was they wear black to work everyday they were so mad she wore their favorite color and looked so much better life is not fair but these pink toes will deal

    More words from the Tip Logic Handbook. I can't wait! Let m go read. ??????

  • sweetpeach0711

    You are absolutely correct! The song has nothing to do with either movements. The song is ratchet and raunchy. The song is about materialist things she owns, how much money she has, how much money she makes, calling women tricks and bitches while telling them to get in formation because SHE slays oh and how to have sex with a man, take him to red lobster and put him on the radio....what cause is this song supporting? I'll wait. People are ignorant and blinded by Beyoncé and honestly feel that nobody took the time to actually listen to the lyrics. They are embarrassing and should not be affiliated with any type of movement. She capitalized from the demographic that would be most beneficial to her financially.....black folk. It is not a coincidence that she announced her tour in the midst of this chaos and the ticket prices are through the roof. People can't see the smoke through the fire. They are being manipulated by the visuals but the actual song and artist lack substance.

    The child was carrying a pellet gun.

    When a hospital bill is generated, it is sent to the insurance carrier or the guarantor; which in this case, was the decedent's parent. If the city wants to pick up the tap, they need to contact the hospital and the ambulance company. Otherwise, the bill goes to his mother.

    Don't get me wrong. I'm a fan and if she's selling out shows, that's great, but she took a hit after her Super Bowl stunt.

  • SameoleJ

    He was carrying it in an open carry state, please consider that. Even if they thought he was an adult and it was real, he was carrying in a state that allowed it and they did not check to see if it was registered before shooting. Let me go eat lunch

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Actually and I might get attacked for saying this. But I kind of blame us as well. We are and have been so focused on what Beyonce did, that nobody even took the time out to complain about it. Again like I said a few folks said something about it but not a lot.

  • Yoni

    Trump says what he wants. Nobody blinks.
    A whole community is forced to drink poisioned water. Nobody blinks.
    Snyder refuses to answer questions about this genocide. Nobody blinks.
    Beyonce sends a silent message about HER HURT (New Orleans connection), her PRIDE (she likes her baby's hair in an AFRO, she likes cornbread and collard greens, bitch) and HER preference in her man (she wants her man with Michaels ORIGINAL nose - wide to breathe in DEEP) and now all of a sudden whites (and blacks alike) are PLUS-SIZED mad!

    She didn't come to play with you hoes! LISTEN! Like the verizon man use to say..... "Can you hear me now??? Good!"

  • No, you get over it

    I guess we won't see any posts on this website on the 16th cause Sandra Rose is gonna be at the NFL protests, right alongside the extremist right winged nuts who are labeling Beyonce of all people, as an anti-cop terrorist, lol. Her 15-second tribute has really got white America shook, when I didn't even think they'd get it. Meanwhile, the black folk haters are accusing her of fraud. Nothing new there.

    I still say that none of this over exaggerated backlash is actually about her performance. This is all in retribution for Paula Deen, George Zimmerman, Hulk Hogan, Donald Sterling, Darren Wilson, and any other white person who has been held accountable for racism. Oh and they are really trying to send a message to 0 bama and the BLM movement. Because whites feel that if not for O being in office, black people would have simply stayed in their place.

    But why the 21 questions?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Its about 5-6 different Confederate flags used through the years. That one that is shown is I think, part of the Missip. state flag. The only state to still have a flag of the Confederacy on their own state flag. They voted to keep it.

    1. Rice was too young to legally carry or possess a handgun.

    2. Open carry means your firearm is in a holster or on your person, not in your hand, pointed at civilians.

    3. The responding officer was told Rice was pulling a gun on civilians, which in any reasonable person's mind, is an act of aggression.

    4. When an officer confronts you and you reach for a weapon, the results are usually deadly.

    5. If you want to be angry with someone, be angry with Rice's mother.

    "Beyonce and her black-clad dancers paid homage to the Black Panthers while performing her song “Formation,” which some of her fans mistook as empowering black people." ? How DARE she empower Black people! SMH.

    I don't think Beyonce waited until 35 to "suddenly reveal her activism;" I just think she finally had the courage to do so. I'm sure she's been and still is, to some extent, controlled by her "handlers." Whether it's now or later, she did it, and for that, I'm proud of her.

  • SameoleJ

    I find it kind of (but not a lot) funny that people think that Beyonce gives two flying fukks about how they feel about what she did. She has been in the public eye for how long now? When you look at her whole body of work, she has never fully conformed to being squeaky, clean and white appropriate, she has always retained her "hood" side. She married the last person people thought she would marry and the last person that white america wanted her to marry. Perhaps she has always been ready to speak her mind just found her own voice to say what she feels. as opposed to words written on a prompter. Could the lyrics have been better? Yeah, but if you pay close attention she is poking fun at all of the things that have been said about her and her family from her husband being ugly, her daughter's hair and even her sexual prowess with her hubby. I am glad that she shocked and shook the masses and told them, "Don't ever forget I am a BLACK WOMAN first and foremost!!" But that is just my opinion...that and $1.49 will get you 10 nuggets at Burger King.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Exactly. Why are we so focused on counting other people pennies? I don't get it.

    There’s no such thing as “black-on-black” crime. Yes, from 1976 to 2005, 94 percent of black victims were killed by black offenders, but that racial exclusivity was also true
    for white victims of violent crime—86 percent were killed by white
    offenders. Indeed, for the large majority of crimes, you’ll find that
    victims and offenders share a racial identity, or have some prior
    relationship to each other.

    Yep. That is the industrialization I spoke of. Maybe I should have said DE-industrialization. They lost A LOT of those tobacco factories and NC as a whole lost a lot of manufacturing jobs. I remma when Cannon Mills closed in 2003 it almost bankrupted that entire city of Kannapolis. Whole nice sized city almost went under.

  • sweetpeach0711

    Has anyone even taken the time to listen to the lyrics? They are extremely vulgar and in poor taste. The song is about her making money, her spending money, materialist things she owns, telling tricks and b@tch@s to get in formation oh and having s@x and taking a man to Red Lobster. Years from now when our children are being taught African American history, is this how we want to be represented? Is this the movement message we wish to convey? I would be embarrassed to attempt to explain to my grandkids after listening to this song what it was supposedly representing. This thing that she did is all about greed and targeting the lower income minorities with plights she knew would grasp attention. All the while announcing her new world tour. Forty shows with full proceeds going straight into her own pocket. Meanwhile it is under the guise of donating to the Flint water cause when in actuality she is in "talks" of creating a fund in the future with United Way. But as usual we are so blinded with the smoke and mirrors that we can't see what is in plain sight. She is a capitalist doing whatever it takes to target a market that in turn will increase HER net worth. PERIOD.

Then somebody pointed out that the video was probably not even HER vision. Oh well. I and others do wish she woulda left most of that craziness out as it detracts from some of the good she was actually trying to say. However, one more time, I aint a fan nor will I ever be.

    Why would I mute the song? She performed it but obviously she did not intend for it to be muted. She is a hypocrite. She is standing in front of a formation of beautiful black women with fist pumps and Afros while she displays a long blonde lace front wig, bleached skin and nose job. Why couldn't she represent with them? She says she loves her baby's Afro but where is hers? She says she loves her husband's Jackson 5 nostrils but clearly that is not her original nose. I find it difficult to jump on this bandwagon especially since it correlated with her upcoming world tour which has sky rocket ticket prices. She is a walking contradiction and that song is an embarrassment to both causes.

  • sweetpeach0711

    I didn't skip past anything. She did. She has NEVER been vocal about any African American cause to include now. Why only a visual? Why not sing about injustice as well? A million dollars to her is like one dollar to us. It is also a tax write off at the end of the year. My opinion is my opinion. I won't follow someone just because they are black. Lately her music has lacked substance and been down right ratchet. She was smart enough to pull this stunt and announce a world tour right around income tax time. I can see the fire through the smoke. She is no Saviour and definitely no activist.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    I suggested you mute the sound because clearly you aren't able to distinguish messages that run concurrent. When you show me the receipts and I mean the ones from the plastic surgeon to support your claims of a nose job then and only then will I even address that. Also everybody can't grow and afro. I know some women been natural 10 years and they still can't quite get that Thelma Evans texture. She could have bought one but then your argument then would be her mocking natural sisters while faking hers... Damned if you do damned if you don't..... But what Superbowl did you perform at?

    Did you ever think that she regrets that nose job and it was something she at her young age was encouraged to do? Her hair is naturally limp and stringy, like my mothers, and my mother did all she could to get an afro growing up, even teasing her hair into tangles. Her wig was teased to make it a bit afroish. But, everyone will see what they want to see and take from it what they want to take from it, either way it has people talking and the young folks listening.

  • sweetpeach0711

    Nope not me. I am active duty military and have been for almost 17 years. I have deployed five times. I am active in my local community and I mentor young adults so miss me with that.

  • LibraGirlonly

    It's the principle behind it not the lyrics.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    The fact is Blacks can multitask. This is not a diversion. Racist are very upset.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Perhaps you should mute it because you don't like Beyonce... You have some very cogent points. I don't suggest anyone jump on anybody's bandwagon either. I'm not a big fan but her music bumps during a workout.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Uhm Dubb, you been in this post. A whole lot of people do.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I said this yesterday and the other days too. Other Roses did too. I been changing the station everytime a song of hern comes on. Will continue to do so. I am not a fan at all. And it pisses me off too folks try to get the non Bey fans to conform.

    So... Wont you join me? Wont you just change the station?

  • Renee26

    Exactly...it is a well known fact that crimes are committed by those who live in the same communities and who interact with each other on a regular basis. Nobody says anything about white on white crime, Asian on Asian crime, Muslim on Muslim crime etc...it's just another way to say that BLACK is what's wrong with society.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    It is a good post. @sandrarose

  • hi-liter

    I think yt folk just detest the sheer blackness of the song. How she spoke about being a black Bill Gates, etc....they hate that shat.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    WE can be whoever we want to be on the internet. But if it's actually factual that you are in the military, I appreciate your service and sacrifice. I grew up in a military town and have several family members active or veterans.

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Absolutely.

  • Yoni

    And her dropping her tour whenever and where ever, doesn't mean folks have to participate. IF people choose to spend their money when, where and HOW they feel, then why are YOU so mad? Like seriously. And now that she is "vocal"/caused controversy/"spoke out" (let them tell it) now YOU mad about it? So tell me, what do YOU suggest, manager?

  • hi-liter

    I don't dislike her I am just not a follower and I can see past bafoonery. I admit that at least it has stirred the pot of awareness and has people actually discussing these topics in which both I am very passionate about.

  • nucynu25

    Yesss

  • SameoleJ

    I have never heard her say she is a Saviour and there are plenty of activists who are very silent with what they do. I am no Bey fan, but if she is trying to become more vocal and use her platform to draw attention to what has been swept under the rug..............go ahead and give me my BEYHIVE packet!!

  • SameoleJ

    That would be too easy!!

  • SameoleJ

    I think they said it was going to be a lacefront afro.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I repeat...that shyt she makes is GREAT for a workout. A bangin' hood beat and lyrics you don't have to think about will make that time on the stair mill and that 4th set of shoulder presses bearable. Black Skinhead is also great for cardio...I'm all in the gym sweating, struggling, and mouthing that "I would have been blacked out on that azz."

  • iWasteTime

    We've discussed how the lyrics aren't very deep but what they did was give us the opportunity to reclaim ourselves. I have a cousin who truly won't buy Watermelon at the supermarket, for fear of how she is perceived, won't order chicken out with coworkers or in certain restaurants (not parm, cutlet or franchise) etc etc because of the stigma.She told us about what Beyonce and the Carters like and do and a group of people identify with what she said. How can that be bad, to love your nose, hair (with or with out the protective style) go ahead and house that watermelon at the salad bar, order your chicken at the business dinner etc etc

  • LibraGirlonly

    So what's the problem then why bash the person who spoke out ? I don't care what color her wigs are.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    So... Wont you join me? Wont you just change the station?

  • sweetpeach0711

    Why would I have to perform at a Super Bowl? I am not s performer however I do serve my country proudly. So what if she can't grow an Afro. I'm sure she does have natural hair. A wig is fine but at that moment she should have represented along with her sisters. I have been natural since 2002 and I can't grow an Afro either. I mostly wear braids. Stans cannot force me into submission with my opinion because it is just that...,mine.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    A respectful dialogue about these issues is a good thing, especially if it enlightens even one person or encourages even one person to get out and do something positive.

  • Renee26

    Low income neighborhoods are obviously affected by crime. Public schools fail the poor youth because they are extremely under funded. Without education and resources many people turn to lives of crime to support their families. With criminal activity there will be death. Many of the statistics in other areas are under-reported or unreported but bet money if you look at the murders of other races they were committed by people of that same race and or social class.

I will not post my duty station on a public forum but I have been deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and also Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am an intelligent, honest, hardworking African American woman who just happens to be passionate about the causes that affect my people. I am embarrassed that this song has become some type of anthem for my people when in actuality the song has absolutely NOTHING to do with BPP or BLM.

    I do however have an issue with our people wanting to tear actions of our people down because it doesn't fit the expectations of theirs. So you say a wig fine.... To who you? What about the others that would have had something to say about that. WE can't come together to do anything cause we are too busy breaking down minute shyt like lyrics and hair while Trump is leading in the damn polls. P.S. you wouldn't have to perform at the Super Bowl but since she did and she used that HUGE platform to bring awareness, is enough for me to give her a slow hand clap!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Let me go on record to say I HATE the notion that if I'm not agreeing with you I have to be against you. Like I said earlier being Pro Black doesn't make me Anti White. Neither does it make me a STAN or BEEHIVE member cause I appreciate the fact the heifa is creating conversations that make some very uncomfortable. I'm a grown up for real. I stan for Jesus, MrKhaki, Khaki14, Khaki11 and Khakialmost2.. #fuqoutofhere #youcan'tmakemebesomethingiaint

  • SameoleJ

    But she hasn't been very respectful calling people followers and stans. Name calling changes the tone.

  • sweetpeach0711

    How am I mad? Because I have an opposing opinion? This makes no sense at all. To correct you she has yet to "speak out".....yes she provided visuals and I do give credit for that because look how many people are discussing important issues now. I still disagree with the song as a representation and I still feel she is a walking contradiction. I guess people get attacked on social media if they are not a Bwyonce Stan. Doesn't matter to me because guess what.....I am still who I am and I still feel what I feel.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I applaud you for serving your country but in the meantime while you are serving a country that don't care about you are your race there are people doing the work in this country for justice for all not some.

  • Yoni

    So white folks (and some black folks alike) feel that she should have paid homage to the vets, police, and military for keeping her safe. But instead she chose to pay homage to the "radical" (of course they had to put that stigma out there) Black Panthers at the Superbowl...............during Black History Month.

  • Hot Caddy Girl

  • SameoleJ

  • Saywhatnow?

    Beyonce is not fighting for our equality, why is she getting credit for this? So many artists speak truth through music and they didn't crossover to make money to do it. They sacrificed all of that. She is not a hero.

  • Yoni

    No. I asked what do you suggest that she does? If every move she makes is wrong, then show us some "right" alternatives. Lead the people. Sharing is caring.

  • Milani

    I'm a Vet, and I'm sure the people who know me in real life are sick and tired of me and my pride from being a Vet...I don't need Bey to pay homage to the military or to the Vets. If she has to do it, then all the other entertainers have to do it as well and it's not needed. I served because I wanted to, not to get accolades from celebrities and such. I'm not mad at her.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Point to the place that I (eye) called her a hero and then we can converse... Until then everything you said means nothing to me. I said I fight for equality.. I ain't say ish about Beyoncé. Don't put words in my mouth.

  • SameoleJ

    There's so many ways that you can care,
    So many ways that you can be there
    For someone, somebody in need.
    You can share a treat, or share a toy,
    Share a little kindness and joy,

    It's easy to make a difference indeed!
    Sharing is caring, And it isn't hard to do;
    When you share what you have with someone else,
    It all comes back to you!

    You can share a smile, a friendly word,
    Give someone a chance to be heard
    Who's lonely And who needs a friend.
    You can make the world a better place,
    Put a smile on face after face
    Start a circle of love that never ends!

    Sharing is caring, And it isn't hard to do;
    When you share what you have with someone else,
    It all comes back to you!

    Sharing is caring, And it isn't hard to do;
    When you share what you have with someone else,
    Love comes back To you!

  • sweetpeach0711

    Do you really feel she has evolved as an artist? Her music now is immature and ratchet. Aside from the curse words a kindergartener could write them. Her songs lack substance. She lacks substance. I listen to lyrics....that's the reason I love Mary J. , Erikah Badu, Jill Scott...,artists of that stature. Their songs have meaning. They are not affiliating Black Lives Matter with having s@x with a man and taking him to red lobster nor are they calling Black QUEENS tricks and b@tches.

  • Genia Gouch

    exactly...interesting the masses supported her being drunk in love...and that fact she was feelin herself...YAY BEY!!...(eye-roll)..she finally pushes out lyrics that make sense to folks to old to twerk...and the world looses their G-DAYUM Mind

  • Yoni

    I don't know if you're referring to ME as a stan (because I'm not). I enjoy entertainment in every form. And my "spoke out" was a way of saying "did she really", because as YOU stated, there was no message (in her lyrics). So I'm not understanding why the uproar from everybody.

  • sweetpeach0711

    I totally agree.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Hey Beyonce or the person she hired to read the blogs for her. I have a suggestion. Next time you perform the song dress yourself and the dancers like the Tuskegee Airmen. That will REALLY get the people going. You're welcome. #Helpful

    Implying that people who do not agree are stans and repeated saying you are not a follower, implies that you feel others are. I think we are all just a group of people who gather on this blog to pass time away at work and sometimes at home. We don't always agree and there are tense moments,, but as adults we get past those moments (for the most part) and keep moving forward. Bey is always a hot topic, some people can take her; some people leave her, either way it doesn't make them a stan or follower. This topic is a good one and even though she may not have created a message that touched everyone, she got the masses talking and more importantly drew her line in the sand on where she stood on an array of topics. Whether you like her or her song/music she has opened the dialogue even more, now we all must continue it and never let it die.

    I plan to stay passionate and I may have repeated myself a few times because numerous people are replying to my comment and from what I see are trying to chastise me because I don't feel she made some great outstanding revelation for black people. She did exactly what she intended to do, utilized her platform to exploit important African American causes to target the minority demographic and make a return profit. She will be millions richer, BLM And BPP will be in her rear view mirror and many many people will be $300-1800 shorter in their bank accounts. Perfect plan. At least though it has us all talking.

I am I great health and shape so I can however I choose not to do so....I would rather save my energy for my children, my family, my career, my community, my education and my health.

    Stevie J alluded to sleeping with Cannon’s ex-wife and the mother of his children Mariah Carey not once but twice during the show’s taping. Cannon responded, telling the reality star he should be more concerned with Hernandez sleeping with rap star Rick Ross, and at one point allegedly told Stevie J that he won’t ever work in Hollywood again. The sources eyewitnesses who say the two nearly began fighting on stage before the show’s producers intervened.

Every artist that you named, my music catolouge is made up of THEM. Not Bey. So I said all of that to say, people CAN and do change. Not when WE want them to.

I think she should prove her newfound black pride by revealing her own hair at least once. I feel that ethnicity only applies to others such as her daughter and her husband but she is afraid to take that plunge. Support some black media. Do guest appearances on black shows. Support black award shows. With the influence she has she could do so much more and right about now it would be greatly appreciated. I feel the visuals were a step in the right direction but that's all....a step. If she SPEAKS out imagine all the other people who will also speak out as well.

    Why must I focus my energy elsewhere? Because I disagree? Why shouldn't you focus your own energy somewhere else? We both have the same rights and freedom of speech. Once again I am merely stating my opinion. I am proud that we share the same music catalogue. As far as change, I cannot tell anyone when to change. Not my call. Only she can determine that timing all I am saying is that I hope it is genuine because the causes she has chosen to "represent" definitely are genuine and detrimental to our people. True words/lyrics cast spells so maybe people should really contemplate why they go so hard for her especially over a song that is down right garbage. At least admit that. The song is meaningless, terrible, simple and embarrassing. So be my guest to rechannel your own energy away from me and I will do so on my own time just as Beyoncé did.....in which you didn't seem to have a problem with her lateness so please don't have a problem with my procrastination.

    I love Sandra Rose and I have been "ghost stalking" for awhile awaiting an opportunity to be a part of the rose garden. I admire a healthy debate and trust I can hold my own but what I will not do is be bombarded/attacked/chastised due to a difference of opinion. This is a free country and every American has the right to freedom of speech last I checked. I find it extremely immature to try to "Beyoncé" someone into submission. I won't fold. Everyone is not required to admire, worship, like or Stan for her. Let this sink in......some people are just not into her. It is ok. Life goes on. Y'all are going head to head and to to toe with me, meanwhile she isn't even aware of our existence. That speaks volume. As I stated I am passionate about BPP as well as BLM but never will I be extremely passionate about a recording artist who puts her leotards on one leg at a time like the rest of us. Now with that being said, I stand 100% firm on my beliefs. I am not replying to anymore comments unless they are of my same intellect and can articulate respectfully. Until then I digress....I have a country to serve so all of us can utilize these forums to express our rights to freedom of speech. .....peace.

  • Smith Jane

    how can you give her credit for the Super Bowl visual but not for her lack of songwriting skills? So we should all be proud that she dresses in black panther attire and not the fact that she couldn't create a better product to represent us?

  • Smith Jane

    Say it! *fist pump*
    And if I recall, these same posters were refusing to get in formation for Jada on the #whiteoscars cause her or Will ain't ever did nothing for blacks - ain't never hired blacks blah blah - it didn't matter to them that Jada was speaking the truth and that her actions would ultimately widen our opportunity in cinema and television. But oh, Beyoncé dresses in black panther gear and suddenly that's revolutionary?! The bar is set so low amongst black people. Our desire to be accepted and viewed as human beings is so low that we will accept any crumb that yts or famous blacks (who previously never gave a f*ck) acknowledged us.

  • Smith Jane

    I agree. It's like she's always teetering the line. Afraid to be considered "too black" but wants our support. Always screaming about feminism but has less than 3 songs with other women - outside of DC - and especially women of color. She never puts her money where her mouth is. And we never know what she's truly passionate about - unlike other artists like David Bowie or Alucia Keys - you just never see that type of passion or enthusiasm for anything, when it comes to Beyoncé. That's why people say she's robotic.

  • Smith Jane

    What plight is that? To love ourselves and be proud of our noses? We were, and hopefully still are, doing those things long before Beyoncé or formation. This song does NOTHING for our "cause", because it is not creating economic wealth or growing businesses in our community. Why are blacks people so concerned with famous blacks uplifting our beauty or some other superficial nonsense? How exactly does this progress our "cause"? Beyoncé is still a millionaire and majority of blacks are still poor, unemployed, and destitute. Yet you and other posters are only concerned about Beyoncr saying she loves an Afro and big nose? Do you people not realize how pathetic and desperate you sound?

    Yoni, you're too emotional to have a rational discussion. Your thoughts on this issue are all over the map and completely illogical.

    1. A pellet gun IS a gun and it's lethal.

    2. THE 911 CALLER SAID Rice was POINTING a GUN at people in park.

    3. When an officer arrives at the scene of a person with a gun call, he has to make a split second judgement call. Rice was carrying a gun, dispatch said he was pointing it at civilians, when the officer arrived, instead of putting his hands up, Rice reached for his weapon, prompting the officer to discharge his firearm.

    Like it or not, those are the facts.

    This has clearly flown over your head because of your disdain for Beyonce, as to why black people are defending her and rightfully so, and this is coming from a white guy. moreover I won't even bother explaining it, because your hate for her won't allow you to see otherwise. Also, how has Beyonce bleached her skin, when she has been light skinned from the time her mother brought her into this world.

    http://www.mtv.com/news/wp-content/uploads/buzz/2014/01/tumblr_n08d1b4mby1rqgjz2o1_1280.jpg

    Also to her altering her wigs to look white, that has got to be one of the most ignorant things I have heard in a long time, please do better. In conclusion, I hope you get the concept to what's going on here, and look past your hate for Beyonce and stand up to what's right.

  • barbeez

    That wasn't her halftime show. She was a guest and just had to elbow her way in once again. The whities love Cold Play. They just wanted to rock out, drink beer and watch the game. And here comes Beyoncé with that black power mess. Just chill. All that wasn't necessary. It was a football game. People just wanted to forget about their problems and have fun. Wrong place and wrong time for her make believe black activism while still rocking a blonde weave.

The lyrics have nothing to do with Black empowerment. This is coming from a person with a multi cultural background. You are entitled to your opinion though, as I am to mine.

    Past or not, she's making a clear stand now, either way, its never to late, and that's inspiring. Nonetheless, open your ears, your eyes, and your mind, and you will see what white America is trying to tell blacks. They're basically saying, stay in your place, and I as a white man, i'm telling white America to go blank themselves. In conclusion, you're entitled to your opinion, but hopefully you'll look deeper into what's going on.

They think if they scream loud enough, we'll forget all about 400 years of history and focus on them and their faux outrage. Someone needs to tell them that burning Beyonce in effigy will bring back visions of their ancestors hanging Black Americans from trees and setting them on fire.

    A shrewd business move on her part. I don't understand or care for that type of music. Don't see where she did anything wrong. We enjoy a first amendment and a second amendment. So where's the rub otherwise? Honest black folk are allowed the same rights as everyone else. Oh wait, I think I see where the black panthers might garner such a reaction. The polling place incident intimidation with clubs and foul language which they were given a pass on by Eric Holder and never brought to justice for. That might be a legitimate reason to be up set. Ok, I get it.

  • eagle keeper

    Regardless of the skin tone of the people who are and were responsible for the abnormally high lead content in the drinking water in Flint, this is a tragedy. Those responsible should be brought to justice no matter where the blame falls. We need to be in prayer for that community and the residents of Flint. Zero excuse for this to be happening.
