Tales of Buffoonery: Episode 24(Gilbert Arenas)

Gilbert Arenas....

Here we go again.  More buffoonery and coonery.  Former NBA player Gilbert Arenas is known more for  putting his foot in his mouth than his basketball skills as of late. This buffoon has said some outlandish things in the past.  But this time he’s taken his self-hating buffoonery to new heights!  Arenas said that actress Lupita Nyongo was not cute.  No big deal right?  All men don’t have to think the same women are attractive.  He could’ve said he thought actress Gabrielle Union or Tika Sumpter were prettier.  That’s fine…I could respect that.  But it’s what he said after that.  He got into a debate with a pro-black Instagram user.

Here’s what he said:

“How black are we talking??? Not to be funny can u name a beautiful black women on the outside … not brown skin … like tyrese black,” he responsed, “top 50 most beautiful women off [sic] all time … the darkest women they have is (Keshia Knight Pulliam aka Rudy) (Gabrielle Union) (Taral Hicks) (Serena Williams).”

Gilbert continued to broadcast his ignorance and targeted Lupita next. “When u say African features black then u have (#1 Lupita Nyong’o) and she’s cute when the lights are off second is (Ajuma Nasenyana),” he wrote, adding that dark skin disgusts him. “Sorry but ewww so the black beautiful women u try to boost up is technically light skinned or brown skinned.”

Then, when he realized that he misunderstood ProBlkThought, he gave a the sorriest half-apology for what he said.

“I never say sorry for the sh*t I say but it’s my fault I read this wrong and got into my feelings,” he admitted. “I thought it was saying,if ur mixed ur not considered black and beautiful and my kids are mixed and dark skinned so I perceived it how I wanted to.”

Gloria Govan.....

So basically he doesn’t think dark skinned women are attractive.  What a big surprise coming from a self hating coon!  But since is ex-wife is funny looking half black/Mexican Laura Govan this type of mentality should be expected.  Gilbert Arenas is a certified coon.  End of story!

Singer/actor Tyrese Gibson marries his “black queen”

It seems there’s a big uproar over R&B singer/actor Tyrese Gibson.  Apparently he recently announced that last month he secretly got married.  No big deal right??  Well in his Instagram post he said he had found his “black queen”.  But the picture of his wife proves otherwise.  His wife is Samantha Lee Schwalenberg. She doesn’t look very black to me. This is not a light-skinned black woman. Where are the African features?  The less African features you have makes you less black.  That’s why every racial group has race classifications to tell themselves apart from others. In 2014, Lee got a certification from the Professional Bartending School of Atlanta. Her certification is in mixology and bartendering.The newly married Mrs. Gibson attended the University of Georgia, and once even competed in the Miss Latin UGA pageant in 2011. Which is fitting since she looks more Latin than African.On her Facebook page, Lee regularly posts long, thoughtful posts about the role of religion and God in her life. In August 2015, Lee wrote about life and death saying, “I think the Devil does a pretty good job of convincing us that there’s nothing after death…that this life, that’s it. I am writing you all to tell you that I know that it doesn’t stop there. We should not fear death, just like we should not fear birth.”Lee is from Dayton, New Jersey, and according to her Facebook page, she now lives in Athens, Georgia. People magazine had reported that Tyrese and Lee were first seen out together at the 33rd Annual UNCF Mayors Masked Ball at Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta in December 2016.

I could really care less who Tyrese married.  The problem is he called her his black queen. According to Tyrese her racial makeup is Ecuadorian,Jamaican and African-American. Tyrese forgot to mention she is also part white.  So he should’ve said his “mixed queen”.  Or at least his biracial queen.  But to call her black is insulting to black women and black people in general.

This is a picture of Lee with her father.  He looks pretty white to me.  She looks like an Arab or a Hispanic woman.

This is a picture of her mother and brother on the far right.  Supposedly the mother is Hispanic. So I guess the mother is an Afro-Latina with some Jamaican ancestry.  The truth of the matter is she is a biracial woman that could easily pass for a Mexican,Cuban or Arab.  This is the problem with the silly one-drop rule. This is another example of whitewashing the African image.  Tyrese knows he’s wrong for this.  And I’m glad that black men and women are calling him out on it.  This was some ignorant self-hating coonish behavior on the part of Tyrese.  But this is what happens when you make being black all inclusive. Am I wrong?  Has this biracial stuff gone too far? Is Tyrese delusional?  I’d love to hear  your thoughts.

Angell Conwell

Angell Conwell was born August 2,1983. Born in the tiny town of Orangeburg, South Carolina, Angell Conwell began her journey at a very young age. After winning countless awards locally, she signed with Wilhelmina’s Kids Division in New York at the age of 10. Always one to challenge herself. She begged for her parents permission to audition for August Wilson’s highly acclaimed, “Fences”. After landing the role she realized, pursuing an career in entertainment was exactly what she would set out to do.

At age 11, Angell and her mother, with only enough funds to stretch a couple months, temporarily relocated to Los Angeles for pilot season. It was quite a eye opener for her. After a very trying season, on the exact day she was scheduled to move back to Carolina, she booked the CBS pilot “On our Own”. Although, the pilot wasn’t picked up to series, the network noticed this vibrant young actress and soon called her back to Hollywood to audition and eventually star as Meshach Taylor’s daughter on the CBS show “Dave’s World”.

Over the years, Conwell has guest starred and recurred on dozens of hit shows, NYPD Blue, City Guys, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Moesha and 3rd Rock from the Sun,Family Time to name a few.

At 17, John Singleton cast Angell in her first silver screen role as Kim in “Baby Boy” sharing the screen with Tyrese, Taraji P. Hensen & Omar Gooding. Immediately after, she began filming the Lions Gate comedic remake “The Wash”, and MGM’s highly controversial but wildly popular “Soul Plane” alongside Kevin Hart, Sofia Vergara, & Monique.

Next up for release is National Lampoons Sex Tax: A Comedy Based on a True Story about the first government owned brothel; written and produced by Hollywood vet David Landsberg.
