DO BLACK FEMALE ENTERTAINERS HAVE TO BE NAKED TO SELL RECORDS?


Just a moment ago, while I was scrolling down my Facebook timeline, I came across a very enlightening post that was shared by one of my friends; Holly Hardin. The post was originally posted December 26, by a guy named Keith Jenkins on Facebook. The post is about the overly sexualized Black female entertainers who seem to think that they have to get naked to sell records. I agree with his opinion. He used Adele as an example. Adele whose single was released a few weeks back has broken all the music records there is to be broken, with the release of her single "Hello," and her album sings and performs with all of her clothes on. Adele does not over-sexualize herself to get noticed or get naked for her craft to be appreciated. She is the kind of star you want your children to emulate. Here is the original post from Facebook and the pictures that were included:


"Look at these COONS!!! Yet, ‪#‎ADELE‬ can wear all of her clothes and sell 5,000,000 records, NOT POISONING ANY YOUNG PEOPLE IN HER COMMUNITY WITH A FOWL MESSAGE!! Yet slaves, coons, and sellouts like WHO YOU SEE IN THE PHOTOS BELOW ADELE HAS DESTROYED THE EYES AND MINDS OF MILLIONS OF YOUNG BLACK PEOPLE WITH THE FILTHINESS OF WHAT THEY REPRESENT. THERE ARE NO WORDS TO EXPRESS MY ACTUAL THOUGHT ON THIS SITUATION. #Adele has broken every record it is to break in music business including Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson records, and that's WITH HER CLOTHES ON!!!! Face it, WHAT CAN BLACK ARTISTS WRITE AND SELL WITH OUT TALKING ABOUT SEX, PROSTITUTION, AND DRUGS TO SELL A MILLION RECORDS? IF BLACK LIVES MATTER, BLACK PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE MORE RESPONSIBILITY IN CARING ABOUT MISGUIDING MESSAGES AND IMAGES THAT'S DESTROYING THE MINDS OF BLACK CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS."
Adele; keeps her clothes on and break album and single sales records.
