Rihanna Sparks Controversy With Black Girls Rock Honor


(AllHipHop News) It should be cause for celebration, but Rihanna’s gratitude towards Black Girl Rock has caused an uproar.

The singer revealed that she would receive the “Rock Star Award” at the coveted show that honors the accomplishments of women and girls of color.

“Thank you @BlackGirlsRock for this years’ Rock Star Award!! #BlackGirlsRockBET,” Rihanna said.
The announcement has sparked a now-antiquated discussion that falls along racial lines.

Some of the opposing views said comments like “All girls rock!”

One commenter took people to task about it.

On Instagram, on person said, “why are white people getting so offended by this? I’m white and I think that this is a great message saying “black girls rock” . This isn’t racist at all because it didn’t put down another race, it just lifted one up. 😉 Lol I swear y’all need to chill.”

    this would be fine if this wasnt the BET AWARDS. ITS CATERING TO BLACK PEOPLE ONLY. FOH with that

    • ZUBU

      Not catering to black people only, other ethnic groups can win awards. You could say the Country Music awards are for southern white people only, yet there are a few token blacks like many years ago Charlie Pride…. Currently Cowboy Troy, and others…

      • The Legendary Troll

        country music is catering to COUNTRY ARTISTS. BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION is catering to BLACK ARTISTS. come on son

      • ZUBU

        Country artists essentially represent southern whites. Not northern whites, not west coast surfer boy whites, not blacks, but southern whites primarily. Country music is catering to southern white people! The BET network is white owned if you missed the memo, and the award shows have been inclusive whites, latins have won awards….
        ————————
        Many whites complain about a black television network, a black college, a black history month, etc. If there was total inclusion there would be no need for the aforementioned…

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        riri not black though so im confused by this promtion.

      • ZUBU

        She is not Black American, but she is Black all day… Where do you think West Indians came from? Most Cubans; Dominicans, Ricans, Brazilians, etc. Where do you think most of them come from? During the African slave trade more Africans were taken to Brazil than to America. Slaves were dropped off throughout the entire region…

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        clearly mixed with other ethnicities but if you call that black then…

      • ZUBU

        Well the way White America defined Black/White/Indian/Asian etc. If you had a speck of anything else you were not White, and you were deemed and treated as non-white. I’m Black American yet I have American Indian in me, Irish, French… Something I learned in college: The African American population group is the most genetically diverse population group on the planet.. So yes she has other ethnicities in her, most of us do. Years ago in the military I had a Rican friend darker than me tell me he was not Black but Puerto Rican… I had to put him up on history and let him know that you are an Afro-Latino… If was born in France of course I would be French, but I still would be a Black French man…

      • In Black America Radio

        since its so clear, how bout listing these “other” ethnic groups

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        didn’t say it was clear which ethnicities they were…

      • Myleage

        if you are 1/8th black, you are black. that law was made in America to help whites gain more property. (funny how if you are 1/8 white and 7/8 native american they will consider you white so that way you have no claim to the land)

        The truth is, whatever is the most obvious phenotype characteristic you portray is what you are. there are mixed ppl who look white and thus they can be considered white and there are mixed people who look all black so they are considered black. I dont personally fall into these racial categories humans use to separate each other. im just trying to explain it

      • killacali909

        That ain’t right. My homies 7/8 white & 1/8 indian. He still gets all the Indian benefits. If you have less then 1/16th Indian in you is when you can’t receive their benefits

      • killacali909

        In cali that’s how it works. Don’t know about your state

      • Myleage

        im talking about past laws. im sure it changed over the years.

      • Tanman01

        Shes black. Have you ever seen her parents? Grandparents? Case closed.

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Yup Brazil had way more slaves than America ever had. My grand mother Is Jamaican and never liked being called black etc. the island thing I guess.

      • A.P. Millz-CT

        Don’t listen to these “nothings” Rhianna is a black women! People should know there are black people all over the world NOT just black Americans! Rhianna has said on multiple occasions SHE IS A BLACK WOMAN.

      • Opposite Of Everyone

        no one on the planet is black or white. Using tones which are opposite extremes to define humans was never the cleverest idea..

    • In Black America Radio

      BET is owned by Viacom. Take your issue to them.

    • IDNTGIVAFUCKBOUTNOTHING

      So what its for Black people to recognize other Black people’s accomplishments, and its aired on a Black Network. Kinda clear what the Purpose of the ceremony is. People like you always have a Gripe about something.

    • Myleage

      if your skin and facial structure passes the threshold for the black stereotype then you are black. period. Rih is black

    • asante-man613

      You can be a white West Indian, a Chinese West Indian, or black West Indian. Or my favourite, East Indian West Indian. Hey, they call themselves that, I didn’t invent it.

      Chances are though, if someone says they are West Indian they are black. From light skinned Dominican looking folks to straight out of the Congo black.

    • TruthTalk

      I see you fell for the distraction… She’s black, she is of African decent… All of these different cultural tittles were created just to divide the African people of the world.

  • edeck7

    The powers that be want to keep Black people on edge and not with the feeling of being and feeling free. The average White man and woman are being deceived by the some wicked that has deceived my people for nearly four hundred years. 2019 will mark 400 years of oppression in some fashion or form under Americanism. It’s time for my GREAT America to give my native born Black Americans reparation so we as a people can get on with the business of finally rebuilding our neighborhoods. #WeWantReparations

  • DrakeDoesn’tWrite

    Because, there aren’t tons of studies that show it’s technically harder to be a Black Woman than anything else. It’s amazing how people that are born with a clear advantage can be so petty. White Women should be more concerned about these Asian broads taking their spots…in the boardroom and bedroom…lol

  • Mo Cash

    i understand her point generally speaking yes the ULTIMATE GOAL is to be unified as one entity with all ethnic groups relinquishing that identity which creates divide & separation. but the reality is we still live in a world that is (especially in america) WHITE DOMINATED, so before you say this is wrong ask yourself is it wrong that in 99.9% of all commercials, movies,award shows & all forms of media & elsewhere feature predominately white people at the forefront if not exclusively? it’s silly to complain about this when you should be complaining about the reason there’s a need for it to begin with, nobody would need to say black,asia, mexican or any other etc.. race rocks if there was realistic diversity abroad. when white people open there mouth about shit like this without using there brain you seem like a racist buffoon c’mon you can’t be that ignorant ;)>

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      wrong – whites have their own genre , which is child porn , the government even made up their own laws for themselves , making their heinous culture the only crimes committed that is filmed and posted for all to see , and government made it against the law to look at them , arresting anyone who looks , while whites get away

      • Mo Cash

        child porn? wtf are you talking about? dude sit down with that silly shit please ;)>

  • D.M.

    They try to take what they can’t have lol oh and she’s black…The only difference between her and us was the slave ships dumped off slaves there 1st
