Torrei Hart Slams 50 Cent: Have Something To Talk About Other Than Your Beautiful, Black Queens! [WATCH]
Rapper and television producer, 50 Cent’s comments were met with mixed reactions after a video clip was posted of a controversial conversation he had on Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio. 50 Cent stated,
“[Black women] get mad. They get angry. You see a lot of sisters they go ‘you f*** with this kind of girl and that king of girl?’ That s*** is exotic! That s*** look a lot different than the s*** you see in the neighborhood all of the time. That s*** look like it came off a boat. …It feels like something you can’t just get. In some kind of ways it’s interesting. But they get angry. ‘How did you end up with this mother****?”
ATTENTION BLACK MEN ACROSS THE WORLD ESPECIALLY THE ONES WITH A PLATFORM
It’s Time to stand up!!! @50cent
“I’m okay with black men dating outside their race, like, I really could give a d*mn if you date outside your race. I’ve dated outside my race several times. And as y’all like to call it, they were exotic men. The difference is, is that me dating these exotic men didn’t make me put down my brothers, because I still love my black men too.”
Torrei Hart’s continued,
“And just because these man were of a different stature, different color, different background, different hair texture, different whatever, it didn’t make them any better than my black brothers or make me wanna go on air and say ‘yeah, you know. I dated this and this ’cause they, he look exotic. You know, sorry if I don’t want you no more black brother.'”
The “Time to Tell My Side” comedian and mother of two kids, shared with comedian Kevin Hart, continued to dismantle the narrative that black women are angry and bitter. She said,
“No, just ’cause you have a preference don’t mean you have to down your lineage and down where you come from. That is the issue. I am so sick and tired of people trying to say that black women are angry, black women are bitter. Ain’t nothing bitter about me. I’m sitting in a $110,000 car and that’s material stuff, so I don’t even wanna bring that into play. I live in a beautiful home, okay. I feel like I’m set for life and don’t have a worry in the world. I have no reason at all to be bitter.”
As Torrei’s continued her message,
“But I do have a problem with when we stand up for black men, black women, we stand up for black men and are so loyal to y’all, so good to y’all…and we break our backs for y’all, and y’all don’t have the same respect for us. Like what you like, but come on, have our backs, the way we have y’alls. Show us the respect, the love, the appreciation, the praise that we deserve. Because it’s getting tired, especially in these times. It’s real tired, and it’s done and it’s dead. Have something else to talk about other than your beautiful black queens.”

“I’m black ! I’m beautiful ! I’m enough ! I’m exotic ! I’m amazing ! I’m one of a mf kind !!!! Now where my black beautiful Queens at?”
