Not only did I not find one hairstyle that remotely resembled braids, locs, an Afro, short-natural, Nicole Carson Wild Style, etc...

Almost EVERY SINGLE one of the Sistaz had LONG BONE STRAIGHT SHIT..

Can't answer that one for ya' but I can take a guess: The way I see it, I figure that for the Brothaz to whom that sh@t applies have reasoned that since most of the black women they see are just some [b]piss-poor [/b]imitations of [b]Becky [/b]they might as well go and get themselves the real thing...

Their financial status guarantees success if this happens to be the case....

but you know us Black women are held to a whole nuther standard Rolling Eyes[/quote]

by WHO??? y'all don't give a fuck what we think for the most part...sistas you do that mess to your damn selves and you only have YOU to blame...I would tell ya to go look in a mirror but you know you wouldn't like what you saw there ANYWAY...[/quote]

I'm cool with what I see in the mirror. I long ago got over what men think, but that's one of the benefits of getting older.

Anywho, OHB, I was talking about the media and those who make the decisions about which images of Black women are acceptable. It's not Black people deciding which Black women they'd like to see as NFL cheerleaders. The powers that be don't want any images of Black women that are too ethnic. We are held to a whole nuther standard. Can't be too dark or too nappy or too bootilicious or too whatever. We must be as close to the white standard of beauty as possible in order to have general acceptance. Black men don't have to attempt to look white.[/quote]

my point is, why do we even care what THEY think if the brothas got love for you here? I think we all spend too much time worried about what THEY are thinking about and less time trying to hear what WE have to say...

[quote]
But getting back to your comment, I do think a lot of Black women do try to conform themselves to what the majority of Black men will think is attractive, and most Black men still don't like Black women with nappy heads.[/quote]

don't know what brothas you dealing with, sounds like the battle cry of the young and stupid brotha IMO, but if the sista got a nice body or SOMETHING on her that catches the brotha attention, then her head can be on FIRE and the brotha will put on some oven mitts and keep on keeping on with ol' girl...

There used to be a "unpermed" Raiderette.

And I wonder how many "natural" sistas are trying out for these squads. I watched a special on some cheerleading crew, and not one natural sista tried out. If they don't try out, I'd have to say the chances of getting on are next to none.

so one should change who they are to fit what someone else sees as beautiful? If we say something like this to our children, we are rightfully called mentally abusive, why is it any different because it is being said to an adult? Why would you want to be associated with an organization who didn't accept you as you were? They would need me long before I needed them, that's for damn sure...I say FUCK THEM. Life is too short for that bullshit thinking....I wish a motherfucka would say something like that to one of my kids...

the majority or the majority of the ones that most sistas think matter? There are MANY brothas out there who would be more than accepting of many sistas but if they ain't looking a certain way or getting paid, providing stability in the way that a sista sees fit or any other thing that takes away from him being idea, then he is more invisible than the brotha that Ralph Ellison wrote about...

Dymo those statistics give the impression that the Brothas in the NFL have the ability to choose the cheerleading squad...

Caucasian females who have an established standard of beauty which very closely if not “exactly” resemble themselves are the judges with the final say most likely.

So therefore I approached the poll as though it were a hypothetical question... And looking at things from the hypothetical perspective... I would vote the same way, fair to good... Which is truly sad, when we think that black males would still more than likely choose the permed head black woman, the dame near, I can't tell from her appearance if she is black or white AA... or the pure uncut Caucasian female...

Woo...check this out also..

A lot of those NFL sites give the "credentials" of the squad on their site by their pics...

Guess what trend I peeped...A glaringly higher percentage of the sprinkling of Sistaz who do make the cut have post-secondary degrees and are successfully employed...

Take for instance the Rams cheerleading Squad...4 Sisters...3 with BS' one with a BA...One Director...one Senior Accountant...One Financial Representative...and One Social worker

Most of them Blond Becky's "resume" read sum'in like this...

"Full-time Student"
"Student at So-and-So"
"So-and-so Major"
A lot didn't have jobs...
some didn't have degrees and apparently any post-secondary education

Whatcha think 'bout that?
