I love the content of Bossip.com
To me it is a great black entertainment blog just as Concrete Loop, and Young, Black and Fabulous...as a matter of fact, I utilize their content often.
Today, I remembered why I stopped posting at Bossip and other black entertainment blogs...sigh...drama.
Drama that only my people can stir up. lol
When I first viewed this image at
my thought was hmmm, ok that's cool. I like the "opposite" element that's going on here:
aggression of athletics/softness of modeling
(not including drug use, bulimia, anorexia, backstabbing etc lol)
you get the picture.
As a matter of fact...to me the cover was boring-
that's why I didn't include it at Bria's Own Words along with the other covers featuring black celebrities
Well chile let me tell you...all hell has broken loose at Bossip...there are so many theories flying around in the comment section, you'd have enough material to write a dissertation for a doctorate's degree.
It became so ridiculous, I got a headache and decided to post this pic and see if any of you
see Lebron as
- King Kong
- A Slave
And for those (myself) who don't see the racist intent of the photo, they (me) too have been hoodwinked.
So I'm asking you all...when you view the image above (please note the title of the issue), remember the issue is about the bodies of athletes and super models. Vogue has chosen the athlete and super model who is at the top of the game, What comes to mind?
Is this a subtle racist cover?
Please clue me in.
