So You Think You Can Dance: Where are the Black Women!!!
WHERE ARE THE BLACK WOMEN!!!!
I am mad!!! There has been 5 total seasons of So you think you can dance, that's a total of 100 dancers in the top 20, I love this show, however I can count on 1 hand the number of black women that have made it to the top 20, throughout all five seasons!!! That is an outrage!!! Season 1 Destiny, Season 2 Donyell and Martha, Season 3 no one, Season 4 Comfort and Chealsea Traille, Season 5 no one!!! What the hell is going on here? Oh I know you are saying... well what about Sabra (Season 3 winner) and Snadra (Season 1) well sorry to say, but they don't count, they are a mixture of everything, barley passing for African American.... beautiful and talented women, however they were not black. I'm not pulling the race card, I enjoy all the dancers and different cultures, and styles, but if you're good, then you're good. For one, during audition week, and Vegas week, they rarley show any african americans, wether male or female, all of a sudden you have some black males make it to the top 20 and you're like "where did he come from?" That's because they don't show us!!! Are african Americans not interesting enough? Do we not have talent? PLEASE!!! We invented dance!!! I Love the show, auditioned twice and will audition again season 7, Season 6 auditions are this month. African American Females have to work extra hard to make it in this industry, and it’s not that we are not good, they just overlook us and Ostracize us for no apparent reason!!! If they don’t start putting more black females through to the top 20 then I am going to stop watching the show all together, sorry, I love it, but I can’t continue to support them, if they don’t support us!!!! Pictures of four of the black women on the show below, Sorry but I could not find a picture of Destiny, as they brushed poor Season 1 under the rug, which happens to be one of my favorite Seasons!!! Picture of Sabra (Season 3 Winner) at the very bottom.
