Have you seen the cover of “Girl” by Pharrell? There are no dark skinned ladies on the cover. The question is why readers? Was this planned by Pharrell or what. People are wondering what is really going on.
It seems their are problems with brothers and dark skinned females. I am wondering what is the reason. Yes Oscar winner Lupita is dark skinned and folks just look around on TV and in the movies out of Hollywood and look at gossip magazines and gossip programs like “The Insider” and “Access Hollywood” and “Extra” etc. Do you see stories on dark skinned African American ladies or just dark skinned females?
The answer sorry to say is no. Does Hollywood have a problem with dark skinned females? Do guys like Pharrell and Kanye West and director Steve McQueen and many others have a problem with dark skinned ladies?
I don’t give a damn what excuse Pharrell says in his response to the exclusion of dark skinned ladies on this album cover for “Girls” The bottom is DARK SKINNED LADIES ARE LEFT OFF THE COVER!! PERIOD!!
The question is why? Are guys afraid to be seen with dark skinned ladies or what readers? Do cats think they will be treated better by lighter skinned ladies? What is the problem? I am trying to figure this out.
So yes I love Pharrell’s music etc BUT I am having a problem with his album cover where a dark skinned female is nowhere in sight. The question readers is why is this going on? Gordon Curvey
