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 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)
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.
The Problkthought IG account responded, backing up their previous comments about black being beautiful.
