I've dated my fair share of black women and one of the struggles I've sometimes had is that the world compares them negatively against their European counterparts that there is a missing connection in healthy self esteem. Because women are judged so much more by their physical beauty, this seems to really make it difficult for some black women to feel extremely beautiful and not just "beautiful for a black girl." There can be no compromises or caveats with true self esteem--either you think no one is a threat or on some level you fear others around you have a one-up. Sure, one can give up on being hot all together and be fine on simply thinking there beautiful even if no one else does but the key to being extremely sexy to others is not actually being extremely sexy but naturally assuming you are and that everyone can see it.
Teyana Taylor helps this by leading women, on some level all women, towards attaining a body which is very attainable for a black women and redefining female fitness by it.
Tinashe has no musical talent and a really terrible personality. But I like Tinashe. Not because I'm attracted to her, but because I recognize she's a spoiled brat and actually see it as a good thing. She breaks the myth of the hard-cold black women who's singularly ambitious as well as rather emasculating in her pursuit for respect in the female community. Tinashe is none of these things. She's spoiled. She uses sex to sell herself and then complains that she's not taken seriously. I know a lot of real life girls like Tinashe and they're very entertaining to listen to talk and complain. Yes, some black girls are just as bratty air headed and entitled as your favorite blond girls.
Impossible not to mention even though it's too obvious. Yet, what's most interesting to me about Beyonce is that she's always been so well loved by the mainstream even though none of her values and views are mainstream. She's always discussed heavy feminist concepts that border on militant and no one seems to care. She's appealing to a vast majority of white women even though her latest album discusses heavy racial concepts that if any other black person said them would create fury and boycott.
Beyonce created a mysterious version of black female sexuality. A made up light complexioned women who invites you to worship her and her beauty from afar while she smiles cutely from a distance. Again, it creates a more complex portrait of a black woman than the uncomfortably pissed version mostly associated with the demographic. NOTE: I'm equally if not more attracted to dark complexioned black women as light complexioned so i didn't mean to offend by favoring light complexioned black women in this Take.
