  1. First of all, there are sooo many beautiful African American women that you would have to say the top 5 most beautiful African American women “This Week” are? Second of all out of all that there are how is it that you have a Caucasian woman. There wasn’t a woman of darker skin color that could make that list. I think the world makes it hard enough for us and our children to see that having darker skin that has not been tanned is beautiful. Then we do it to our selves. I very much know that when there is an advertisement for the most beautiful “women” that if they had a tan that was to dark they wouldn’t make the list! I don’t understand how we as African Americans contradict our own progress when we want other races to treat us like we matter
    But when we have the opportunity we don’t show to the world or each other that we matter. Also I did not know that Charlize Theron was African American, could you please explain to me how? Thank You.


    • Hello Daphne, thanks for visiting our blog. You are right that I probably should have a weekly or perhaps monthly “Top 5” list. I will take that into future consideration.

      However, in regards to having Charlize Theron on my list, one thing you failed to notice which is very crucial to your argument is the fact that the title of this post was not ‘Top 5 Most Beautiful and Talented African-American Actresses” but “Top 5 Most Beautiful and Talented African Actresses”. And since she’s a talented South African actress, I think she does deserve to be on the list regardless of her color.
      Again, I do agree that for future reference, I should use this platform as an empowerment tool for the many beautiful talented black women out there. It’s only right I do so as a black woman myself.

      Anyways, thanks again for the constructive criticism and feel free to let me know if you have further questions in relation to this blog post or any other.
