This has been a question I have had on my mind for a while now.
So far I have named a few pics and had it as my tag name but the comments that roll in are serious.
I usually say that I am bringing Chocolate back and most people reply that it hasn’t left.
The only problem is, your right it never left because it never made it to the industry.
If you look at all the videos, movies, models that are poppin right now there are very few chocolate models out there doing the damn thing.
Its like you go to these castings and the HNIC doesn’t want to pick you for that magazine, promo, video, etc but they are ready to wife you up in a heart beat. What kind of shit is that?
If you are a sexy individual , with the drive and dedication that a model is supposed to have but you happen to be chocolate you get no shine and will probably not get the gig. It sucks because as a chocolate sista you hear every excuse in the book about why you didnt get the gig instead of hearing the truth.
Why is that? Why is it that chocolate sistas dont get to much play in the industry when most fellas want to see a great/sexy/educated/multi talented chocolate female in these mags, videos, etc?
This is a question that I have posted on various sites and here is what some people had to say:
Noir: HEY GIRL! YOU KNOW I HADE TO COME THRU AN COMMENT ABOUT THIS SHIT. WELL I FINALY GOT IT. THE REASON WHY IS THAT, THE MEDIA HAS THE INDUSTRY PROGRAMED TO THINK THAT THE ONLY THING THAT IS EXCEPTABLE AN PRETTY IN THE INDUSTRY IS THE FARE SKIN ALMOST WHITE MIXED TYPE OF WOMEN WHITCH THEY AREY PRETTY TO. WE JUST HAVENT HAD THAT ONE PERSON TO SAY OK CHOCOLATE IS IN AN WE ARE GOING TO GIVE THEM A TRY. BUT THEY ARE JUST SCARED TO PUT US IN THE THE SPOTLITE BESAUSE THEY THINK THAT THEY WONT MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS THEY DO. WHITCH IN REALAITY. THATS WHAT PEOPLE WANT TO SEE. AN THEY WOULD MAKE BOOKOO MONEY… BUT WE ARE ON THE RISE BABY TRUST ME, I GOT SOME GREAT THING GOING ON FOR ME SO I WILL PUT AN END TO IT FOR YOU….. BUT U NEED TO HELP ME THO. TAKE CARE AN CALL ME SOON! 1 LUV!!!!! AN ANOTHER THING U DAMN RITE ! WHY THE HELL WE CANT GET THE WORK OH BUT IM YOUR IDEAL WOMEN! SHADY!!!LOL
Phil: I think it boils down to this, alot of times people might be intimidated and thinking they maybe over-shadowed by someone else.Especially someone like yourself with the drive/determination. If it happens, then apparently the person running things isn’t as good as they think they are or as someone else told them they were. Hence the wife issue… trying to keep them tied down so to speak. Not mention hoping to get the hottest girls at their sides,etc.
I myself would much prefer to see more chocolate sistas more in the mainstream than the few rare outlets
