Today on Powertalk with Lorraine Jacques White, our daily discussion was on Black Beauty in America. Our guests were Ronda Pinrice from The Grio and Carey a Human Resources manager who refuses to hire people with an Afro-centric appearance. Also Carey, whom is African-American says she’s comfortable with her blond hair and blue eyes, and only dates white men. Callers were very combative with Carey as they voiced their displeasure on her opinion on black beauty.

Listen to Lorraine Jacques White and our special guests as they discuss the standard of black beauty in America.

    “When people show you who they are, believe them the first time- Oprah Winfrey

    Today, I hope the faithful listeners of Power Talk saw Dr. White for who and what she is. Dr. White had a Black woman on her show who said that she does not hire Black people if they looked to “Black.” What did Dr. White say? Did she condemn the woman for her discriminatory practices? No. Dr. White did not say anything. She said that we can disagree without being disagreeable. Can you imagine if a White Republican said those things? To me, this shows that Dr. White is only concerned if someone says negative things about President Obama, then she goes off.

    Wake up Black folk, this woman cares nothing about you. She is only concerned about ratings.

    Listen to the audio clips for yourself. Do you hear Dr. White calling out the lady’s hiring practices?

    Wake up people!!!

      Maya Angelou actually said that Falcon. Oprah said she learned this from Maya.

    This is so disturbing to me, I am like the male caller, where are they getting these people from. Maybe it does make for good ratings, but I find these shows getting more and more ridiculous by the day.

This wanna be pink-ah-zoid says she doesn’t see anything wrong with the blue eyes and blonde hair coz she is rep’n who she is, Sad thing, she doesn’t know who the heck she is, this is why she is experimenting outside her skin and not searching within……..smh
