Former ‘Top Model’ Winner Adrian Curry To Boycott BET…

This is the hottest mess of the week. The winner of the first season of America’s Next Top Model, Adrienne Curry (also of the VH1 reality show My Fair Brady) decided she is going to do her part to end racism…by boycotting BET. And Black History Month.

Ummm…yeah.

I wish this were a joke. But she blogged on her myspace page a long and drawn out piece about how we need to get over separating the races and whatnot…

This is gonna be hard guys. I LOVE the comedians on BET. I also LOVE the fact that they play my favorite show of all time, In Living Color. However, I do not believe in seperating ANY RACE in America. WE ARE AMERICANS! How dare we have Black History Month! In my eyes, the Native Americans deserve it MUCH more, seeing how we destroyed their ENTIRE SOCIETY. There are hardly any of them left! They also have been proven to have the WORST living conditions on their reservations. I want AN AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH. One where we learn about EVERY race, ALL OF OUR LEADERS, EVERYONE! I think by having a month dedicated to one race, and not one for any other, is RACIST. Every fund set up to only help people of one race is SICK and RACIST.

Yes, I get it. Black people were slaves here once. You know what? That does suck some major balls, however, it is time to move the fuck on. Do we hear the Jews crying that they were made slaves for thousands of years? Do we hear them whine that they should OWN the pyramids in Egypt because THEY broke their backs making them? Do we hear them bitch and moan about Hitler, etc? (my hubby is a Jew)Nope, we dont. It’s time for us to UNITE AS ONE. I do not think that singling out one race, giving one race opportunities to go to college (I know a TON of poor white.asian, indian, american indian, etc etc that could use that too!), giving one race the EXCUSE to blame things on others for being whatever nationality they are, is a good way at making sure we NEVER kill racism.

I am over this shit. WE ALL CAME FROM ONE BLACK WOMAN FROM AFRICA, THAT is our EVE! It has been proven by science, and I stand by it. If any other race had a chanel dedicated to just them, we would think it was racist. If any other race demanded a month be set aside for ONLY them, they would be considered racist. I am NOT living by this double standard any longer.

Think I am racist? I am not. I know what racism is. I dated a guy named “Justin” in Junior high. Nothing serious, but I really liked him. He was the blackest of black…BEAUTIFUL skin, kinda like Alex Wek’s. He was handsome, and athletic, etc. I was called a nigger lover. But you know what? I was called that by a whole 2 people out of a school with HUNDREDS of students. THAT is why I am NOT buying this racist shit anymore. Let us teach or children that there is NO DIFFERENCE! We are all human. I hope one day aliens land and try to kill us. Maybe THEN we would finally realize that WE are ONE.

Now, I can think of many reasons to boycott BET (as I write this I am watching Hell Date. That’s reason to start the Civil Rights Movement all over, let alone anything else) but because black people are being racist? REALLY?

Now with the Jena 6 case and Megan Williams being beaten and raped in WV, she can’t think of any other racial cause to champion other than boycotting BET and Black History Month? Chile, please!

  1. “Do we hear them bitch and moan about Hitler, etc? ”

    Um… Adrian? Actually? Me, I’m Jewish, and i hear my fellow Hebes “bitch and moan” A LOT about “Hitler, etc.” The difference being that Jews GOT reparations, museums, movies, and accurate representations in history textbooks. And we don’t have to go to schools or use money adorned with the names and faces of Holocaust war criminals.

    I’m not even going to touch any of the other fucked-up components of your statement.

    All of this from the woman who is such an embarrassment to Tyra Banks that in the opening credits of America’s Next Top Model, when they show clips of all the past winners, they don’t have a single frame of Adrian.

  2. You know, Adrian acted kind of crazy on those TV shows anyways..always sobbing and boohooing over something. I know white supremacy makes us white folk act nuts but she’s got it bad.

  3. Tyrone –

    Are you the same person who posted a comment about the lack of blackLGBT specific issues on my blog? Let me get you together real quick.

    First, I knew several of those folks murdered in Newark were probably gay a DAY OR SO after it happened. I was called by a friend who knew one of them.

    I emailed and made personal calls to all the LGBT/POC community organizing projects that I knew needed to know: Audre Lorde Project, Queers for Economic Justice, Critical Resistance, FIERCE!, Anti-Violence Project, The LGBT Center (NYC), Human Rights Watch, and the Liberation in Truth Church in Newark NJ. I even tipped off a New York Time reporter to pursue that angle, though he blew me off as if I didn’t know what the hell I was talking about.

    So I am glad that the story eventually got out, but i didn’t feel the need to blog about it, because others did. Keith and Rod have bigger readerships than I do, and there is some overlap so I didn’t feel the need to do so, nor was I interested in taking credit–which is why I showed some restraint in writing my original piece “A Cry for Newark” about it.

    So please don’t leave messages or comments as if to suggest I didn’t do anything, or didn’t give a shit. You don’t know the half of it, obviously. Despite what I am understanding that some people take me to be a spotlight hog, there are lots of things I do that I don’t put on blast and take credit for.

    If you seem so concerned about my lack of covering issues you feel are important, start your own blog. It’s really that simple.

  4. OH My!! The world is having bigger issues right now, not going to far US is having mayor issues right now, every day thousand of people are losing their jobs, children are killing each other, mothers killing their kids, a HORRIBLE WAR that it’s killing OUR PEOPLE…BLACK, White, every race and the “MISSY ADRIAN CURRY” thinks that we need to focus on Black History Month because it’s racist?? PLEASE!! I think she a racist and feel sorry for the black person that she saw working as a waiter or waitress and maybe treat it really bad and now because she is “famous” she wants to repair it!! GET A LIFE!!
