week 8

“First was the Anglo Saxon belief that the color white represented things that were pure, clean, good, and reflective of the spiritual light. The color black , on the other hand, represented impurity, filth, evil, and spiritual darkness. Both concepts persist today. (Wilson II, Gutierrez, Chao, 2013, pg. 58)” #Rihanna#whitening #blackbeauty #twitter#controversial #race #media#popularculture #Baca

When I first came across this image, I was shocked and confused. I see many people already talk about how beautiful Rihanna already is, but to claim that should would be “more” beautiful if white, just shows that these concepts still do exist today. I did go through as much of the likes (1,252 as of today) and did see some people not white like this tweet but majority white audience. I just don’t believe we need to think someone who is of colored to be only beautiful if they were white, and maybe she would be but that doesn’t justify the reason so believe she is “much more” than she already is. Rihanna is “beautiful” no matter what color she is. I just think this claim is a little ridiculous..
