act da fool
I remember when I used to behave like a "Black Girl". Now hold your horses and put down your pitch forks, because I don't believe in that type of labelling and in this day and age when where all finally treated as equals, it being colour, religion(or well not Tom Cruise and his band of brothers) and Sex. Still there remains that token element where a display of an ethnic group becomes some sort of of artistic geniuasity(no this word will not be found in a dictionary).
Now im not going to get into my typical black girl days cuz that would just be listing things down in a stereotypical manner and back then I just looked to fitting in rather than just being me....(im still black no matter how much certain people would like to disagree and am dam lucky to)
I mean to be honest I loved the film....but if it where a bunch of Caucasian girls would I still have loved it? and with the overall reception be as colourful. I loved the Prouenza Schouler collection so im not judging the cloths, there's just that annoying show pony vibe reeking of this video and I dont appreciate such an "old fashion" perception continuously being exploited.
And if you want to pull the originality card try something that hasent been done to death.
I mean why not put the same girls up in a more posh upper east side setting being pampered in their lavish penthouse.
I mean would that be so strange?
watch it here
