Did Y’all See? Black Women Criticize Sistas For Wearing Red Lipstick
“Did Y’all See?” is a new MadameNoire video series featuring commentary from MN’s editors on the biggest news of the week, including all the drama that goes down on the hottest shows on television.
In this week’s episode of “Did Y’all See?” MN editors discuss the drama that erupted on Essence.com’s Facebook page this week when they posted photos of three Houston naturalistas. Instead of focusing on the ladies’ hair, some of the readers began to criticize one of the women for wearing red lipstick, remarking that it was ugly and unbecoming because of the size of her lips and the color of her skin. MN’s editors ask why Black women keep doing this to one another while steadily becoming irate over white people who do the same thing.
In this segment we also discuss Jennifer Hudson’s criticism of sex in music today and ask, should she really be opening her mouth at all? Watch and join in.
