Some Jamaican women were fuming mad at dancehall artist Popcaan over the weekend. Popcaan posted a photo of him and his white girlfriend and that did not sit well with many Jamaican ladies. The reaction was similar to what Usain Bolt got when he had a white girlfriend.
It is strange that Jamaican women got angry at Popcaan considering the fact that Jamaica has the most skin bleaching per capita in the world. Not only is there a high rate of skin bleaching, but the wearing of European looking weaves and wigs is also extremely high. So even if Popcaan had chosen a Jamaican woman, she would probably look more European than African anyway. He could have done what Jay Z did and get a fake white woman like Beyonce but instead he chose to go with the real thing.
The actions of Usain Bolt and Popcaan should be a lesson to Black women to start being themselves, stop bleaching their skin and wearing hair weaves to like what they are not. When Black women try to look European there is no way they can compete with real Europeans. If on the other hand, they should embrace their beautiful blackness, their chocolate skin that was kissed by the sun, their full lips that drank from the river Nile, their sexy hips that can be as wide as the river Nile, then they will realize their true beauty. The Black man will then have no reason for even looking at women of other races, as he will be too busy fighting off men of other races who are drooling and craving for his woman.
The Black women bleaching and wearing Europeans looking weaves should not let the Black man off the hook for turning their backs on Black women, however. A lot of Black men know that without the money and fame these white women would not even be looking at them. Yet as soon as they make some doe, they want to put a white girl on their elbows. It is funny, but you will always hear a Black person say, “When I make some money am moving out the ghetto.” Yet, you seldom hear a Black person say, “when I make some money, am going to make the ghetto a better place to live”.
Still, at the end of the day love is love and no one has the right to tell any man or woman who they should love. So to the Jamaican ladies who are angry, it is understandable where you are coming from, but if Popcaan is happy with his woman, just be happy for him. Happiness is the key.
