I like her music and have seen her in concert twice, but feel she’s dealt with a lot of internalized racism

I blame both of Beyonce's parents. Matthew already admitted in past interviews that he sought a relationship AND marriage to Tina because she was light-skinned and pass the BTB [Brown Paper Bag] test. And as for Tina, that woman has been high maintanence thoughout her adult life and her ego has gotten worse since she re-married to someone else. So imagine the fact that there were plenty of bad habits AND wrong lessons for Beyonce to pick up on.

Seems to be coming from primarily direct Africans. Seems their tired of being generalized and homogenized for profit.

Do good, then throw it into the sea.

Also I wish she left her face alone, I can tell she’s done a lot of procedures cause since the beginning of the 4 album era, she never looked the same again

I can't see the twitter but how is this even a thing?

Beyoncé is black. Black folks don't call it blackface; just face.

Did she wear dark makeup or something? IDK? Oh, well...

Black privilege. Deal with it. nana

It's some Black folks who were saying that Beyonce was wrong for wearing black face. I saw the pics before they were wiped and deleted, but she had on very dark makeup on her face, but the rest of her body was shown in her normal light skinned color. There was a stark contrast between light and dark that you definitely noticed, so that's why I think people reacted.
