Tyra Banks is Fat?

Y'all been hurting Tyra's feelings calling her fat--mine, too. 'Cause if Tyra's fat (in the negative, Eurocentric sense of the word) then what am I? ...Never mind.

Truth of the matter is, for the first time in her life Tyra is fine (in the positive Afrocentric sense of the word.) The child got herself some hips! And boobs--lets not forget the boobs.
Tyra has always been beautiful, and when she's 80 or 90 it's likely she'll still be beautiful. But "beautiful" is a word we black folk don't use to describe that rare woman who is a combination of striking good looks, womanly curves, a little brown sugar, and dab of butter.
The word we use is fine.
Rock on, Tyra!

I got Tyra's back, she looks better than ever and is showing her smarts, if I could spell, I would say intellect, on her talk show. Speaking of hips, did you see Serena distroy the Russian slim and thin blond beauty, The white girl was very gracious in defeat.JD,

I would have to agree to disagree. Tyra is phat!, just not in the Eurocentric sense of the word.

But, I would have to agree with you that she is fine, and she's got it goin on. I ain't mad at her!

I'm leaving this comment just in case you were wondering where the previous one came from.
