            The problem is you all don’t see the problem in glorying loose behavior. This was promoted to devalue the black woman shows like a different world and girlfriends get canceled bc they show smart and successful black women

                                I hate to be the one to break it to y'all but the video vixens we're not getting paid Like Rappers. Name me video vixen that retired rich off of being a video vixen. Don't worry I'll wait also, name me one video vixen in the history of the Ford top 100 that made that list. Oh you can name me some rappers. Bonet me a video vixen. They might have been making money couple of hundred dollars maybe $1,000. But I promise you they were not making money. They had to do other things to make additional money. But to just be a video vixen yeah, no you weren't getting paid Like Rappers.

I was embarrassed by how oversexualized they were. They made me feel ashamed of my body because boys thought they could touch it without my permission.

                                                                                      Making black and brown girls feel that they're beautiful? There was a very narrow definition even within the video world. Light skinned and thick. Most women do not fit into that mold.

                                                                                      • Hockey Girl

                                                                                        I think these people are fooling themselves if they think that these videos do not objectify women. They clearly do. Grown folks can do with they want to do. But I do not buy that women and little black girls watching these videos feel like they have been empowered by some woman’s butt getting spanked or twerking. Please let’s not pretend y’all.
