Beyonce - Creole
CLICK HERE to download Beyonce's Creole.
They are going to HATE her for this one.
This isn't a great track, but it's ok. I really don't want to go here, but I must. In all fairness, I would be highly pissed off if a dark skinned sista made a song about "black bones". I'd feel left out, and I'd be offended at the skin color reference. I'd send a scathing letter to her record label.
I don't mind Beyonce singing about her Creole heritage, but I don't like the "red bone" and "yellow bone" references. I don't like what it insinuates, and I don't appreciate that the song throws us back 20 years. Granted, she does mention "brown bones", but those references are clearly thrown in just to avoid an uproar. It's obvious that Beyonce comes from that old "paper bag" group of Louisiana coon asses; she doesn't even realize how offensive the song can be. I LOVE Beyonce, but I don't want her to make songs like this.
