Beyonce’s “Formation” Isn’t About Beyonce…It’s About Being Unapologetically Black


*Pumps my black power fist in the air* Ladies and gentlemen, Beyoncé has arrived and she’s letting ya’ll know that she’s a proud black woman. If you are unaware, Beyoncé dropped a single on Saturday afternoon for her new song “Formation“. The song basically shuts down all those crazy ass rumors about the Illuminati that ya’ll so love to spew. She addresses that her daughter will continue to rock her baby fro and you can stay mad for the rest of your lives.  The beat goes hard as f*ck and of course I love it. Bey talks about getting where she has gotten by working her black ass off and she will continue to slay. 

The main attention that has everyone talking is the actual “Formation” video. The video is the blackest f*cking video I have ever seen and I am here for all of it. ALL OF IT. The video shows every powerful black images of New Orleans and her creole roots. The video pays homage and shows gripping symbolism of the Black Lives Matter movement, Hurricane Katrina, The Nation of Islam, 19th century black New Orleans society and Moor influences. Mama took it there and didn’t give a damn who the hell felt pressed. You thought, she was done but oh the shit got better. On Sunday the creole queen performed at the Superbowl halftime show and sang her new single. Bey paying homage to Michael Jackson in her all black and gold attire and her dancers dressed as Black Panthers which is also paying tribute to the Black Panther parties 50th year in existence. Bey proclaimed that she was a negro woman in front of the nations and millions of angry  racists white people.

This is the dumbest pile of shit I have ever heard in my life. There are black men walking around hating black women because we want them to be the best they can be. They stereotype all sistas to be “neck snapping, gum chewing weave wearing hoes” that only want to dominate a man and bring him down. I got news for you angry black men NOT ALL BLACK WOMEN WANT TO DRAIN YOUR BLACK ASS.
