Gilbert Arenas Says There Aren’t Many Beautiful Dark Women

Gilbert Arenas is coming under fire for his recent comments made about dark skinned women. The NBA baller’s comments were made in a response to a post by ProBlkThought. The post read,

Dear Black Girl: You don’t have to be mixed to be beautiful.

Gilbert Arenas Says There Aren't Many Beautiful Dark Skinned Women: Lupita's only cute with the light's off!

Gilbert responded to the post, stating that there are very few black women, with dark complexions, that are beautiful. He writes:

How black are we talking??? Not to be funny can u name a beautiful black women on the outside … not brown skin … like tyrese black … top 50 most beautiful women off [sic] all time … the darkest women they have is (Keshia Knight Pulliam aka Rudy) (gab)) union) (taral hicks) (Serena Williams)

Arenas added,

When u say African features black then u have (#1 lupita nyong’o) and she’s cute when the lights are off second is (Ajuma nasenyana) sorry but ewww so the black beautiful women u try to boost up is technically light skinned or brown skinned.

    He hate his dark skinned mother, for the life she chose. She didn’t finish HS. Had a baby boy who’s father was a drug dealer. He was gunned down, died in her arms. She moved to Florida had 7 more kids 4 different father’s. She had aliases and drugs involved. She was a promising track and basketball star, but she chose the fast life.

      He doesn’t have to think Lupita is cute but he does not have the right to publicly insult her? Maybe he ought to help his team win a championship…Oh wait…

      I always remind black men who like to group black women in a box, that they are also talking about their mothers. If he thinks that darker skinned black women are unattractive, then he must also feel that way about himself, and his mother if she is dark. I don’t know why these men consider themselves apart from the black community, and they get to label us. Perhaps it’s the new money, the international traveling or the opportunity to date women from other cultures. Unfortunately, if black women were to generalize about them with all of the statistics and comments that society makes about dark skinned black men i.e womanizers, addicts, thieves, sexual deviants, ignorant, abusers, liars, con men, etc., they wouldn’t be fit to stand on the same side of the street as us, and the only women who would want them are undercover prostitutes, gold diggers, other sexual deviants or women with low self esteem. However, as soon as racism hits, where do they run? This is another fool who has become a legend in his own mind. Black women have been through too much to end up with this in their house. I ‘d rather have a broke or middle class man that appreciates me than a rich one that thinks he is doing me a favor.

    The only comment I have for his is…He’s an idiot.

  • Melissa Slade Randle

    Poor guy. He has a slave Jim Crow mentality. He’s thinking like a brainwashed slave. If he hasn’t seen any beautiful dark skinned black women all he had to do was google it to make sure he was correct before he made such an ignorant public sstatement. And who is this guy anyway? A paid puppet for TV?

    Why is it that it is always black men who publicly downgrade our women! I never see Jewish men, European men, Hispanic men, Asian men, Indian men, Arab men denigrate the beauty of their women. It’s always the ignorant self hating black man! It really angers me! We have millions of beautiful women, Lupita is one of those million, for this ignorant fool, who is of similar complexion to say she is only beautiful in the dark is the epitome of ignorance! Let’s see who thinks he’s handsome when his dumbass is broke and those white or light women are taking all his money for child support! How many times have we seen this story play out folks!!

      Thank you Mr. Fleming. It’s hard for me to understand that too. No other race does that to their women.

    • Arwen Aragon

      Say it Mr. Fleming! What a shame that we get more love from non MoC. Smh. It’s only a few like this fool that turns us off.

  • Brix

    Color struck, empty headed fool. Smh. He has no respect for himself.

  • Inga Lewis

    What do he think about his dark skin….self hate is not the answer…….pray for him they get money and try to erase history….you are black and no money can change that..im proud i come from strong people who did what they had to so they could survive and keep the rythm or life going so we can be hear i love my dark skinned…

    In my opinion darker skinned women are the most beautiful women in the world. Some are so stunning to me. It mesmerizes me.
