about beyonce

Think about how much people hate Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick, or any other black celebrity who spoke out against racial injustice. They didn’t assault any police officers. They didn’t loot any businesses. They didn’t threaten to kill all white people. They didn’t do anything violent at all. They just did something that white people couldn’t ignore. And look at how much they’re hated, despite following racists’ demand to “protest peacefully”. They’ve even received death threats.

Taylor Swift and Adele can both be successful at the same time. 

Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato can both be successful at the same time. 

Beyonce and Rihanna can both be successful at the same time. 

MORE. THAN. ONE. FEMALE. ARTIST. CAN. BE. SUCCESSFUL. AT. THE. SAME. TIME. WITHOUT. BEING. PITTED. AGAINST. EACH. OTHER.

IT’S NOT A COMPETITION.

Beyonce uses her performances as a platform to send a message on important social issues.

My niece, Destiny, is pregnant with her first child.

“I need to start thinking about names.”

“How bout Michelle?”

“That’s cute for a girl, but what if it’s a boy?”

“What about Kelly? That can be either a boy’s or girl’s name.”

“I don’t know if I would name a boy Kelly, but I like the name.”

“What about Beyonce?”

Sudden realization of what I had been doing, “I hate you.”
