#IOBSports #GilbertArenas has found himself under fire for his comments about dark-skinned women on Instagram in which he claimed that very few dark-skinned women are beautiful. The athlete even slammed actress #LupitaNyong’o as not “cute.” In response to an Instagram post from ProBlkThought that read, “Dear Black Girl: You don’t have to be mixed to be beautiful,” Arenas went on a rant: 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),” he wrote before adding, “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 Instagram page responded by posting a collage of pictures of beautiful black women. Arenas later posted an apology after the backlash became too great to withstand, claiming that he read the original post wrong and therefore misinterpreted what the message was about. However, he refused to apologize for suggesting that Lupita Nyongo “ain’t cute.” “I never say sorry for the shit I say but it’s my fault I read this wrong and got into my feelings…I thought it was saying,if ur mixed ur not considered black and beautiful and my kids are mixed and dark skinned so I perceived it how I wanted to,” he wrote on Instagram. “I fucked this up so I deserved the hatred that comes….I was trying to defend all shades of black but that’s what the post was also doing…I ended up pulling a COON moment…sorry all shades of black women no need to forgive me Im pretty sure I’ll say some fucked up shit probably in two weeks (I know pussy prices about to double up on my ass from black women ) and as for lupita she ain’t cute to me sorry…just like I’m not cute to 95% of u…”

Part 4 #CrystalsBlackBook “You can’t be with married men Leidy!” I exclaimed. “Girl shut up, you’ll learn” Leidy replied as she sipped on her minute maid.”Now hush i’m watching PASSIONS” she added. I walked over to the other couch and sat there until i dozed off. “Crissy” i woke up to my little 4 yr old cousin waking me up. “A man is on the phone for you” he smiled and i looked over to see my Aunt holding the phone. “He say’s its about a job, yay!” My aunt whispered all excited. She stood there listening as i grabbed the phone. “Um hello” i stuttered. “Crystal? It’s me Eric from earlier i was just seeing if you really wanted to babysit” Eric said. “Uh yeah sure, how much is it paying?” I replied. I looked over at my Aunt who was standing there whispering for me to ask when can i start. I laughed and shooed her away! “go go!” “$15 a hour and just 3 days, Monday-Wednesday- and Friday, 3hours each day” he explained. “Oh cool! Yeah i can do it! When can I start?” I asked. “Tomorrow!” he yelled all excited. SNAAAATCH* My aunt grabbed the phone. “Hello, so when will she home? I need to know the address and i need to speak to someone else to verify the legitimacy.” She exclaimed. “This is my neice she’s 14 so i have to protect her, tu sabes?”. My aunt nodded her head to signify she understood and took out a pencil and jotted something down. “Ok OK ill tell her…… ok ok thank you” she hung up! “Congratulations Crissy! You got the job. I have the address for you, he wants you there at 7:30 at night”. She handed me the paper and walked away. I went back over to the couch and went back to sleep until i was woken up by cups breaking and commotion in the kitchen. I ran into the kitchen and saw my Uncle holding my aunt’s head to the counter squishing it. I grabbed a rolling pin and held it up! “Get off my tia!!! uncle Roger” i yelled. “Stay out of it!” He demanded. The baby started crying in the other room and so he let her go. I watched as my aunt sobbed on the kitchen flood. Uncle Roger ran out the house and me, Leidy and my Aunt sat around still in shock. “I don’t know if he’s coming back girls, i caught him cheating on me” Auntie cried. (*40 comments for more)
