    Well, like my Akata friends say, “everyone wants to be black, until it’s time to be black” hahaha. Fact is tomorrow when they start killing young blacks all of them, including miley cyrus’ stanking chicken legged twerking ass will go to their exclusive mansions in thier white dominated neighborhoods and chill becausee, afterall, they are not black.

      I find this so irritating. She is silvery purple and has black and pink hair. HOW is this black face? It’s like black people/stupid white people are just waiting for the slightest chance to make noise about nothing. Black face was used by white actors to bortray mammy characters and uneducated black comedic characters in the most racist way . The other time they said BEYONCE did black face. I mean c’mon guys. Black people are not purple. Get over yourselves!

      That’s not entirely true as some of the characters are intelligent they just didn’t want black people having those jobs.

      She soooo jeggered the situation biko! The pics don’t even look like the typical “black-face” makeup, they jazzed it up for her with purple hair and what not. Peeps need to chill the F out, playing the racism card at every turning point will kill the true struggles of racism!

      My people perish for lack of jegamycine!

    Black people think “ART” before u think racism, I’m sure Kylie meant no harm, most of y’all need to stop making everything in the world about black and white, the real racist cases are not even reported sef or are swept under the carpet when they are.

      It’s sad that we have so many different colors and culture yet black peoples and white people act like they are the only ones. Anyway I think she looks like a fairy I absolutely love how mystical it comes off ass.

    They should let her be. I see nothing wrong in it. In fact the hate on others in this world is too much. I pray for all you all.

    Can the real white people pls stand up! Where were y’ll when snoop dogg painted his face white? Or when Michael Jackson actually turned white without any form of trickery. This goes to show how idle blacks can be, shouldn’t painting her face black be some sort of flattery? Art or no art…I didn’t see the real blondes go haywire over beyonce/kim’s fake blonde hair. Live and let live.

    No need to get mad at Kylie; she is not trying to be black at all. As a girl with no real purpose in life and too much time on her hands, she is desperately seeking attention anywhere she can find it. So don’t rebuke, simply ignore this naughty little flea and it will go away.

    That is a very mean thing to say. And I’m sure you are a girl. Typical. It’s your type that will get on ig and be posting about women supporting women.

    I don’t think the photos portrays her has having a black face. Either way she isn’t a naturally pretty girl. In her case plastic surgery did wonders for her.

    But can’t black people just ignore these things…
    And must you always assume she’s doing “black face”, what if avatar was the inspiration.
    Chill y’all

    please people should let this girl be.
    i dont see anything wrong with what she did. Rihanna did a similar thing in her video clip ”UMBRELLA”
    its as if blacks are just becoming so petty, all is due to some kind of inferiority complex.
    we just have to believe and have pride in ourselves no matter what. the noise must stop.

    She’s trying too hard to be black. Media calling her lips “the Kylie Jenner lips”, um I’m pretty sure black people own this feature, but it ain’t special unless its some white girl. Not a black face? Hmm that’s very interesting because last time I checked she makes excuses that’s she’s not racist. She didn’t take the critisism she was getting for this photoshoot very well and chose to address it ignorantly. Shes just a white girl trying to live her life? Shit that’s what black girls are trying to do without being killed because of racism. All of you saying black people have privileges, I bet your flat asses that you’r white. WHAT PRIVILEGE DO BLACK PEOPLE HAVE EXACTLY? Nothing. White people steal everything from black people and make it a joke. Big Lips, Big Ass, Dark Skin, Cornrows, Rap, The N word, “trashy clothes”. Degrading black people to be feared because why? Because white slave masters don’t own black people anymore? When did Black people become lazy? When they stop working for free for white people? Kylie Jenner is a racist little girl dating some pedophile…smh stop acting like she ain’t trying to be black. She’s some 17 white girl acting like she has a black woman’s full lips, pffft she was “blessed” with some small ass lips don’t even exist.

    I don’t see a black girl when looking at these photos. I will however admit I have no idea who this girl is and the skin tone didn’t even make me think black girl. Personally I’m black and kinda exspect something darker in tone? I’ll admit my sister is light skin but this isn’t close to what she would look like. Those lips aren’t just black people that’s a silly American racism.

    Then again if I’m correct she is famous. People do feel famous people are their property…

    I don’t know I guess I assumed she was darker because the entire picture is dark. Very good and artistic I love it. Good job with the glitter as it really opens her up not sure how else to explain it. With no prior knowledge of the girl I can’t see black face when looking at it so…

    I think she’s a rather beautiful girl but I also realize it’s fun for our American culture to attack women. America just loves it be it this women or another famous women. Looking at ourselves and being just as harsh is hard no?

    Sorry if I had typos it’s hard to type on this thing and I only notice my mistakes later. ?

    P.s. What is black anyway? I’ve been told I act white and talk white…

    Milky skin?! I think you want to say orange skin right? I don’t want to make fun of the girl honestly she’s beautiful but she’s far from milky. Besides not to be racist but the closes I have seen in beautiful milky skin would be Asian women. White people are more pink cause the lack of pigment lets the blood show easy. This is just too funny to me.
