(The Black Hat) From Hair Weaves to Colored Contacts, Black Women Have Been Appropriating White Culture For Decades Disclaimer: The views, opinions and positions expressed by the author of the following article and those providing comments are theirs alone, and do not necessarily reflect the views, opinions, positions of EURweb or any employee thereof. Nicki Minaj has publicly referred to herself as a  “Barbie Doll.” She calls her legions of fans “Barbies” Is this not a form of cultural appropriation ? Minaj has experimented with blonde wigs, colored contacts, and skin-lighting makeup. How is this different than Iggy Azalea adopting a southern Black accent and injecting silicone in her buttocks? Anyone who condones Minaj’s actions, but criticizes Azalea, is a downright hypocrite. *Hey, sisters: How does it feel to be hypocrites? I have another question: How can you justify accusing Kylie Jenner and Miley Cyrus of appropriating black culture? Have you smacked your nappy little heads on the pavement and forgotten that for decades, you’ve done everything in your power to look like Marsha Brady? Have you forgotten that Madam CJ Walker amassed a multi-million dollar fortune by creating specialized hair-care products for black women to have long, flowing locks like Jane Fonda? I often resist the urge to scream when I hear black women complain about others borrowing their “traditions.” In a day and age where Latinos are hired to fry eggrolls at Panda Express, it seems fair to assume that there is no longer a clear line separating one race’s customs from another. I could use this premise to write some long, drawn out opinion piece about how America is a melting pot that blends cultures from around the world. I could rip into the backwards logic of those who disagree with Kylie Jenner’s decision to enhance the size of her lips and rear-end.  I could probably come up with 100 reasons why she isn’t guilty of appropriating black culture. Or instead, I could turn the argument around and accuse black women of appropriating white culture. It would be easy: all I would have to do is compile a list of common practices that black women use to make themselves look more European. The list would include pictures and probably look something like this: 1. Chemical Relaxer/ Hair Weave Instead of rocking the nappy roots God gave you, many black women subject their hair and scalp to a chemical substance strong enough to penetrate metal (over the course of time). If sisters weren’t unhappy with their natural appearance, they would sport Afros, Dreadlocks and all that other nappy shit. Instead, many of you choose to get your hair straightened. Seems like cultural appropriation to me. cosplay wigs2. Colored Contacts Sisters, let me give you a word of advice: When you go shopping for contacts, choose a color that doesn’t scream, “I wanna be a white girl!” 3. Skin Bleaching Do I really have to explain this one? Tami Roman (photo above), you know better. Skin bleaching is becoming a common practice among women of color (wait…I guess the word “color” no longer applies to this group). There’s no greater example of cultural appropriation. 4. Body Transformation As if skin bleaching wasn’t enough, now black women are getting rid of their natural curves in order to achieve the coveted “thigh gap.” This trend is spreading like wildfire throughout the entertainment industry. Examples include Beyonce, Rihanna, and Teyana Taylor. 5. European Clothing and Accessories Sisters, many of you spend thousands of dollars on high-end clothing brands created by European fashion designers. But here’s something they don’t tell you: these clothes aren’t made for black people. If you want to avoid being accused of appropriating white culture, I suggest rearranging your wardrobe. Maybe you’ll consider buying a dashiki or Kente cloth (it’ll only cost you $7). 6. Dating White Men *If dating a white guy isn’t an example of cultural appropriation, what is? Sisters, there’s nothing wrong with getting your swirl on every now and then. But remember: dating a white guy won’t change the color of your skin (that’s what bleaching cream is for).

*Flushing, New York – Venus Williams stand over 6ft tall, but she had a tall task in front of her for her third round match Friday afternoon inside Arthur Ashe Stadium. She was up against a feisty teen, one of only two women who recently beat Serena Williams, Belinda Bencic of Switzerland. Bencic bested Serena in a recent Toronto semifinal and went on to win the Rogers Cup title. Venus, seeded 23, had a winning record against the 18-year-old Suisse going into the match, 3-0, but when they played those matches the U.S. Open 12 seed was a different player; she hadn’t won a title and she certainly hadn’t beaten a draw full of top 20 players in doing so.But as far as weapons go, the match was always on Venus’ racquet, because on her good days she can almost match those of her little sister. That said, being the oldest woman in the draw, 35, she needed to employ them all; Bencic came into the tournament surging and she had the young legs to possibly wear the veteran down. Once the match was underway, Venus had chances early in the first set to break, but she didn’t play with the urgency to take advantage of them. The two hung even with no breaks of serve until 4-3, with Venus leading, but that’s when the 7-time Slam champion turned up the heat, broke Bencic to love, then held for the set. The experienced champion was steady on her feet and never even really looked troubled in the match. At the start of the second, Venus immediately forced triple breakpoints on the Suisse, but wasn’t able to capitalize and instead spurred a momentum change, finding Bencic snatching her first break point and going up 4-1. That party didn’t last long, however; Venus remained calm and broke back to get back on serve at 3-4. The next couple of games went Venus’ way, giving her the opportunity to serve for the match. But she had been very shaky on closing lately, so it wasn’t foregone that the deal was done. But, Bencic’s body language had turned to that of sinking defeat and Venus smelling that fresh blood confidently closed the match out, 6-3, 6-4. 18 years after first making it to the finals – and winning the title twice, Venus now finds herself in the third round of the U.S. Open: “I love the game, I love the U.S. Open and I love how everyone got behind me when I was down,” she said after the win. Venus got it done early in the day in straights and gave her little sister a tough act to follow later that evening on Ashe … and she seemed up to the task starting out. Serena Williams, aka the one to watch, came out on court with fire in her eyes against compatriot and occasional hitting partner, Bethany Mattek-Sands … but the rest of her body didn’t get the memo. She dropped her first service game after failing to break Mattek-Sands, allowing the tricky fashionista to go up 3-0 before she ever got on the board.  At 3-1, that signature passion began to rear its head , however, and she put enough pressure on her quirky opponent’s serve to earn the break back for 2-3. But the threat still wasn’t averted; she got broken right back. Bethany serving at 4-2 was taken to deuce, but she managed to hold with a variety of shots that had Serena off completely off-kilter. The defending champion held next, giving Mattek-Sands the opportunity to serve for the set. That game went to deuce a few times, and after two close-but-no-cigar bullets, the 101 ranked American took the first set, 6-3. We’ve been here before, though, right? lace front wigsSerena came out of the gates in the second set with an easy hold … And she looked eerily calm. She earned more break points on the Mattek-Sands serve but was unable to convert. In fact, she’d held somewhere around nine breakpoints but went for too much each time … the scoreline was 1 – all at that point. Bethany got back on serve and same scenario: Serena earns multiple breakpoints, but the doubles specialist miraculously digs out. It was then tied at 2-all. Inspired play from both took the score to 4-3, with Serena still leading, but the Calendar Slam hopeful was still needing to notch up the pressure as it got to the business end of the set. With that, she finally converted a break point and screamed with relief. 5-3, Serena and she’s on serve. The crowd sensed it was her time and got behind her with cheers, but the nerves were just to strong and she dropped the break of serve she’d just earned. But as champions do, she regrouped and waited for her next opportunity to break … and she did, taking the second set, 7-5. With a little wind now beneath her famous derrière, she bolted out to a five games to love lead in the deciding set. All cylinders were firing, the Serena train was on the track full steam ahead and she closed it out with a ferocious blow of her proverbial whistle by not allowing Mattek-Sands another game.  What began as an alarm sounding performance for her fans turned out as an emphatically ended match with a scoreline of 3-6, 7-5, 6-0. She got it done under the bright Ashe light, and in front of a few luminaries from the entertainment world: Dougie Fresh, Tiger Woods, Kelly Rowland, Wendell Pierce, Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton), Carla Hall (The Chew) Teyonna Parris (Mad Men, Dear White People and Survivor’s Remorse). Serena’s next opponent is American Madison Keys, who – for the first time in 5 tries – took out the crafty 15 seed, Agnieszka Radwanska from Poland, 6-3, 6-2 on Grandstand court. Rewinding a little, on Thursday, a rejuvenated Donald Young advanced to the 3rd round in a Glam Slam for the first time since the 2014 French Open. Riding on the glory of coming back from 2 sets down to win his previous match against Frenchman Giles Simon, he didn’t lose heart when he dropped the first set against his lower ranked but sturdy opponent, Aljaz Bedene. The Brit was cranking out huge serves and powerful groundstrokes, giving Young just about all he could handle, but the American stayed the course and waited for the wheels to fall off his opponent’s game, going on to win the match, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2. The Brit’s collapse could partly be attributed to Young’s resolve – buoyed by the home crowd support, but also the sweltering on-court conditions, which Young was well prepared for: “I felt pretty good … But i’m from Atlanta so it gets quite hot, he said. “It’s actually hotter than this.” They don’t call it “Hotlanta” for nothing. As for the home crowd support: “When you can look over and see support from familiar faces and people that care about you no matter what, it always gives you extra motivation,” he said. This year’s US Open has experienced a record number of withdrawals due to the smothering heat. Young will next face Serbian Viktor Troicki, but under cooler New York conditions.

Staff Sgt. Michael Maroney and 3-year-old LeShay Brown *It was the bear hug felt around the world. An Air Force pararescue jumper descended upon the cold flood waters of Katrina to save a 3-year-old girl and her family in 2005. The child, so happy to see the man, unabashedly showed her happiness by wrapping her arms around his neck and giving him the biggest bear hug along with a smile that went ear-to-ear. To no one’s surprise, that picture was soon everywhere. It popped up on Burger King place mats, AT&T phone cards, a magazine cover. perruques cheveuxThe photo touched the heart of the rescuer, Staff Sgt. Michael Maroney, himself a father, because of what he says it represented. “I was a single father trying to raise two boys. I had just gotten back from Afghanistan, and New Orleans was under water,” Maroney, told The Washington Post. “When she hugged me, everything went away. There were no problems in that moment. That meant everything to me.” “It had been such a rough week; when she wrapped me up in that hug, I was in la-la land,”he said earlier this year. “Nothing else existed.” Mahoney, now 40, always wondered about the little girl whose name he never got. And he never stopped hoping that he would find her. And now he has. Read more at EURThisNthat.

*EUR was on the scene in Los Angeles for the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, on the black carpet where Kool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, and Melle Mel talk being called the Godfathers of Hip Hop. And Vic Mensa, T-Pain, Silento, and Kel Mitchell reveal what music videos they binge watch. EUR: What other artists inspire you? Vic Mensa: Right now I would say Kurt Cobain. Some of my favorite songs from Nirvana are “Come As You Are” and “Lithium.” I grew up on that music, it’s like my 5th grade music. Silento: I loved Justin Bieber when I was younger, Usher, and Future. Mainly all the artists that were on BET and MTV. Linkin Park, Gorillaz; I listened to everybody. Vic Mensa at 2015 MTV VMAs Silento at 2015 MTV VMAs Kool Moe Dee: I like a lot of new stuff now. I know it sounds cliché because he is the go to guy but Drake is an incredible artist. We have MC, rappers and we have artist. A lot of these guys are not necessarily great MCs or great rappers, according to the old heads, but they are incredible artist. The artistry is where you make your bones, especially if you are going to have longevity in this industry. remy hair extensionsKool Moe Dee, Grandmaster Caz, and Melle Mel w/ Macklemore EUR: Did you ever believe you would have such a huge impact on music and Hip Hop? Kool Moe Dee: From the very beginning, the generation that proceeded us said it was noise. All of our parents said, ‘turn that music down, what the heck are you doing, you’re not singing, and no one is going to pay to see anybody get on stage without a band.’ And then 25, 35 years later Jay Z’s a millionaire. Grandmaster Caz: We come from apart of Hip Hop, when Hip Hop was in the streets, before the music industry. Hip Hop was six years old before it made a first record. We’ve been a part of the culture from the beginning. Kool Moe Dee, Melle Mel & Grandmaster Caz EUR: Aside from your own, what music videos can you binge watch? T-Pain: I’ve been in a lot of videos…Does it have to be a music video or a YouTube video because I got plenty of those!

*This right here is the definition of “hot mess.” Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens married a woman named Rachel Snider early last year and some say he did so to secure a lavish house he wanted but didn’t have the money or credit to obtain it on his own. Cue Rachel who was more than eager to become Mrs. Owens and use her good credit and name to help purchase a $2 million home in Sherman Oaks, California. The couple married inside the home. It was T.O.’s first marriage and the bliss would last only three days before Snider filed for divorce. She alleged Owens used her to qualify for the mortgage. Property records show both names listed on the deed transfer. They would eventually list the home for sell for $2.35 million. Shortly after their break-up, Rachel was rushed to the hospital for allegedly attempting to commit suicide.  Now Terrell’s estranged wife is livid that he publicly bashed her on social media after she called him out for appearing on “Celebrity Wife Swap.” Rachel is trying to figure out why he’s on the show when they are officially still married, and why are he and his “TV wife” filming inside her home? pre bonded hairWhen Snider got word that T.O. was appearing on “Celebrity Wife Swap” with another woman and family … she took to Twitter to address the mess, posting: “No I don’t know who that woman is , and no I do t know how @usacelebritywif has my estranged husband on there with this woman,” Snider wrote. Owens fired back, telling Rachel, “U’re nothing to me. U just want attention.” At one point, professional counselor Chad Steele interjected to advise the former couple not to air their drama for all to read on social media. Terrell and Rachel were having none of that. Clearly loving the attention, they continued to spar, with Rachel threatening to release damaging and embarrassing information about her soon-to-be ex husband. Their entire exchange was beautifully chronicled HERE.
