Do you find it normal for Beyonce to be on the cover?

saying its to "ghetto" is a mention of race
Exactly :applause: :applause: .

"They should make up their minds," wrote one angry poster on a sports-related board. "Either it's the Swimsuit Issue or the Rap Issue. SI can cancel my subscription!"
If that's not an offense,than what is it?

Wake up ,racism is still well alive.

Just read some come of the comments on this site and you will understand that people didn't like beyoncÚ making the cover

smh @ this being in the news.


the fact that this was posted in a sketchy, biased gossip page should already set off some red flags... not to mention the ORIGINAL source on the website DOESN'T EXIST.

there's enough controversy in the world to keep us busy...definitely don't need any fake sh*t to incite a furor.

TYRA BANKS >>> Beyonce.

I wonder how Beyonce would feel if Tyra Banks somehow won a Grammy for best song...
Beyonce has no business on the cover of a Professional MODELing magazine.. Just as Tyra Banks has no business winning a grammy for songs.
wtf

if tyra was good at singing or w/e, maybe she'd have a chance to win the award

beyonce is on the cover because they want a bi*ch that looks good to look good on the cover...and she look pretty good to me...

Its funny people saying beyonce didnt deserve the cover and what if tyra blah blah. It was a money making decision that im sure sports illustrated came to her about. No matter if she is a model or not they asked her to do it. I could go on all day about the racist thing but its not even worth talking about cause my post isnt gonna stop it.

Miss the point much??? Exactly. ""IF" Tyra was good at singing, maybe she'd have a chance to win the award." Well... TYRA isn't a Singer... Are we seeing the point, or should I go further in detail?. ..

Further in detail.... Okay.. BEYONCE = Singer/Not supermodel.. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Magazine is for High-Quality supermodels, and the one who gets the cover is suppose to experience a boost in their career. Beyonce on other magazines would be fine.. But this one was a special kind of magazine meant for supermodels.. That is what a lot of people are upset with. She has no business being in that position. Thats all.

Also.. as far as the word "Ghetto" being used in the article... Some people might take that to mean "Black," but then again, it doesn't actually mean "black." A lot of other races live in ghetto's. Maybe, that person just feels Beyonce sings for ghetto inhabitants? Or they think she is from the ghetto and doesn't support that. Who knows. They did not, however, come out and say "Black." "Reading between the lines" confuses reality from speculation. It's not a good practice in these cases.

As far as "Reading between the lines" goes... It's an article made to upset people.. When such an article is presented, in order to make an accurate argument, you have to be literally correct in everything. Accurate, written support helps give credit to your opinion. Without it, your just some mad man running around calling people racist.

exactly so how can any1 say its racist, there have been asian and hispanic women also
cause that was 10 years ago when Tyra was on the cover & people asking why people bringing up why people saying it's racism like racism don't exist against African Americans still, America needs to get rid of the ignorance because alot of people identify with Beyonce more than alot of the models they have where you can't even pronounce they name & controversy sells

That site isn't really a legit site. It's mostly all opinionated comments/articles. People shouldn't take this article too seriously because it's just someone's opinion to say that this SI Swimsuit Edition is "too ghetto."

Honestly, it's a good look for SI because not only are they being diverse, but they're also showing a superstar female that is more than "model quality." There's absolutely nothing wrong with putting an African-American on the cover of the SI Swimsuit Edition and there's nothing wrong with putting Beyonce Knowles on there neither. People are just too ignorant and disrespectful to know that.

i am kinda tired of her. go ahead and hate...but i think her looks have been overrated for years. and also, 'ghetto' and 'rap' are not racist terms the last i heard?

some people may not like rap music..but other people besides black people live in the ghetto, or act ghetto, and black people surely make other music besides rap music.

but as far as catching feelings over whos on the cover...who gives a fu*k. does it really affect you that much?
