On Thursday, the hashtag #WhatIsPretty trended on Twitter, inspiring men and women across the globe to share photos of what they consider beautiful. And on Thursday, the covers of two of the world’s largest magazines, TIME and People had a resounding answer: black women.

"On Thursday, the hashtag #WhatIsPretty trended on Twitter, the covers of two of the world’s largest magazines, TIME and People had a resounding answer: black women."

This is racist because they left out Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez because we all know they are the most beautiful. If you don't believe they are, please report to the spinny thing from that Star Trek episode:

Or, if that doesn't work, report to one of the disintergration booths, also from Star Trek, because hey, I like Star Trek:

Speaking of beauty and Star Trek, she was hot when I was like, 5:

Is that last picture from the old star trek?

If so, pretty racy for its time.

Lupita, maybe...she has a radiance about her. But I must be missing something. If I had to choose between Michelle Obama and Beyonce, I’d choose Michelle as more beautiful. Really, I just don’t get it.

Beyonce is ugly. With out without makeup, she is just ugly.

I dreamed I was on the cover of Time magazine—in my underwear. What a nightmare.

I glanced at a Time magazine last week at the doctor and it was about ten pages total.

You’d never see Mooshelle dressed like that, unless the image was heavily photoshopped.

I kinda miss writing my footnotes in the margins of the TIME rags while I waited

"They keep peddling what ain't nobody buying."

Rich black men often pick white women, too.

Whatever it takes to advance the Aryan - excuse me I meant to say Negro - race. (To do otherwise would be racist, you know).

There are beautiful black women, but these magazines have passed them up in exchange for...bleah. The Time cover does not show a beautiful woman, or even noticably above average.

I have no idea who Lupita is. But she does have quite a few African features. And really bad teeth for a model.

So much for beauty being in the eye of the beholder. Your beholding had better be politically correct or you are no doubt a racist.

Lupita has a natural beauty and a wonderful smile. Beyonce looks over produced, and just plain fake. Kinda looks like Jay-Z in a wig.

“I dreamed I was on the cover of Time magazine.. in my underwear”.

It could have been worse.. you could have not been wearing ANY underwear! :)

If Beyoncé wants to be an example of women who should be respected, why is she posing in her underwear-again-on magazine covers? Apparently, the woman doesn’t own any outer clothes-she reminds me of one of the models in those I dreamed-I-did-something-totally-ridiculous-in my Maidenform bra ads from my teen years...

I have to agree with the 60’s and 70’s feminist movement when it comes to objectifying women by dressing/posing like that...

We get a free subscription that we didn’t ask for, so every week when it comes, it goes right in the garbage.

I’ll never forgive them for having two covers a few months ago: one in Europe criticizing the idiot living in our White House, and one for the stooges in America about should athletes be paid. I’ll never for give them for that . . . it’s a garbage POS.

The Lupita chick was in “12 Years A Slave”. Therefore she is not only Most Beautiful, but Most Intelligent, Most Compassionate, and All-Around Most Wonderful Female in the Universe.

If you venture the opinion that plenty of women are as attractive or more so, you are a racist. If any of those women happen to be white, you deserve hanging.

I’d take Lupita Nyong’o any day over Beyonce.

Lupita really is beautiful, but I admit to having a strong preference for, shall we say, women of a duskier variety.

Beyoncé is ugly and if I saw the other one in the grocery store I wouldn’t even take notice of her.
Their agenda is showing again.

Nobody poses them like that. They pose themselves like that.

” by dressing/posing like that...”

I didn’t say anyone “posed them” like that then or now-what I said is that women objectify women by doing that-if the Beyonces of the world don’t want to be the very objects they reject, then they might consider wearing something besides underwear in their cover photos...

Honestly, the first time I saw a photo of Lupita Nyongo I thought she was a man (really). Now I think she looks like a man in drag...come to think of it, so does Beyonce.

Just sayin’...
