And Susan Taylor Wept- mESSENCE magazine Taps Hyper-Violent Belligerent, Evelyn Lozada for a Wedding Shoot
BWAHA! Because some things just write themselves- I wanted to point out the latest example in cognitive dissonance from the ESSENCE magazine brain trust. ESSENCE.com is promoting a "bridal" photo shoot of Evelyn Lozada.
File this in the category with the Kim Porter -Sean Combs - Reggie Bush "Black Love" covers. Ms. Lozada is a character on the show, Basketball Wives. Her current storyline is that she is engaged to Chad "OchoCinco" Johnson. To say Ms. Lozada is a hyperviolent, Black woman hating, foul mouthed scourge would not quite capture her true essence. Add to that, the man she's engaged to has publically stated that he has a preference for non-Black women, then you see the logic in highlighting Ms. Lozada on a website whose tag line is "Where Black women come first." Makes total sense!
Never mind that the entire wedding is a fiction concocted by Ms Lozada and her publicity hungry fiance. Never mind that this woman is just a VILE human being - but she was the only woman of color getting married? And let's not forget Ocho Cinco publically stating he wasn't interested in dating any women who subscribe to ESSENCE magazine?
Yes, all of his "Baby Mamas" are Black- He'll impregnante you, but he ain't putting a ring on it.
Many of you will not know who Evelyn Lozada is because you don't watch sewer entertainment. Here is some video of Ms Lozada on her TV show.
Yes, young Black girls, you too can aspire to be on national television screaming about punching people in their $#(*%#&)* face. Yes you too can aspire to throw wine bottles at people! Yes, this woman hopped across a table to "fight."
So those of you who were wondering if Constance White was going to take ESSENCE in a new direction, the answer is YES!
This is like a diabetes magazine doing a photo shoot of Krispey Kreme donuts. As one commenter on the WAOD Facebook Page pointed out:
Next thing you know Drita from MobWives will be on the cover...
I am unfamiliar with this Drita person. Does Drita refer to Black people as N#^&$%? Evelyn does. Does Drita attack Black women's physical appearance? Evelyn does. Is Drita "engaged" to a Black man that has no problem impregnating Black women, but won't date or marry them? Evelyn is. Does Drita repeatedly physically assault Black women? Evelyn does. This Drita person might be an improvement over Evelyn.
I guess Kim Porter was busy.
