Viola Davis is my girl and she slays as an actress, now she has a hit show on ABC, which was written and produced by Shonda Rhimes called “How to Get Away With Murder”. The New York Times had some not so nice things to say about her, comparing her skin complexion and acting skills to Kerry Washington and Halle Berry.
Viola was described as an “older, darker-skinned and less classically beautiful than [Kerry] Washington, or for that matter Halle Berry,” by a New York Times writer. After reading what they said, she Slayed them with one tweet keeping it classy and cute:
They praise Lupita for portraying a slave.. but can’t handle when a darkskinned woman is playing an authoritative figure. They cannot STAND when we are portrayed in a strong authoritative light. No shade to Lupita, but you see the contrast here?
I think that Viola is beautiful and I love her full lips, she’s also very talented and classy. Viola is a better actress than Halle and Kerry put together so why does it matter if she’s dark skin and older?
White people are still projecting that light skin vs dark skin battle that they’ve been doing for the longest and it has spilled over to black people. Black women are a force to be reckoned with. If only we could work together to unleash our TRUE power on this world and get over our insecurities. what a sight to see. Get it Ms. Davis.
