Amandla, Teen Titan, vs. Kylie, Teen THOT

 

 

Unknown

 

Amandla Stenberg, one of the co-stars of the first Hunger Games films, is at it again, this time issuing a verbal slap to teen THOT of the moment, Kylie Jenner. Amandla just recently called out Kimmy K’s doppelgaenger for her penchant for appropriating black culture with her latest faux pas: cornrows. Amandla went in for the THOTlette, claiming she was “appropriat(ing) black features and culture but fail(ing) to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism.”

Kylie, never one to back down from controversy (and more headlines) had this to say in response to all her detractors…

 

“Mad if I do…mad if I don’t. Go hang w Jaden [Smith, a mutual friend] or something.”

Stenberg went on, writing…

 

“Black features are beautiful. Black women are not. Whit women are paragons of virtue and desire . Black women are objects of fetishism and brutality…This, at least, seems to be the mentality surrounding black femininity and beauty in a society built upon Eurocentric beauty standards. While white women are praised for altering their bodies, plumping their limps and tanning their skin, black women are shammed although the same features exist on them naturally.”

She went on to address “this double standard [which] is one string in the netting that surrounds black female sexuality—a web that entraps black women when they claim sexual agency. Deeply ingrained into culture is the notion that black female bodies, at the intersect of oppression, are less than human and therefore unattractive…Often when they are sexualized it is from a place of racial fetishism. When the media is not ignoring black women altogether, they are disparaging,” wrote Amandla. “As culture shifts and racial tensions are tested through the vehicle of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, it is important to question: Do female black lives matter too?”

 

Proving to be wise beyond her 16 years, the question of the hour is whether or not Amandla is ready to go toe to toe with the ho. Who will win?

 

Stay tuned…
