Rapper Wale Apologizes to Black Women for Black Men’s Role in Excessive Butt Enhancements

• Nov 20, 2015

Rapper Wale found himself in hot water on Instagram this week after he posted and commented on a meme that’s been circulating on social media for a few weeks now. The meme features a black woman with what appears to be a surgically enhanced behind being held up by a chain. Wale has since deleted the original post from his Instagram account, but we were able to grab a screen shot from The Shade Room.

Wale may have thought that he was doing black women a favor by apologizing to black women for making them feel as if they needed to ruin their bodies to please black men. Most responded positively, applauding him for speaking up and acknowledging that black women don’t need to manipulate their bodies in order to feel accepted. However, some of his followers weren’t here for Wale’s “Dear Black Women” speech. Apparently, some of his followers are upset that he only geared his message to black women, when there are a slew of non‐black women plumping up every thing they can.

Butt enhancements used to be the elephant in the room, more and more women are speaking about and even against them. Most recently, and quite surprisingly, songtress K Michelle spoke about removing her butt enhancements to return to her “normal shape.”

Ladies, what are your thoughts?

i dont see the problem with what he said. when you see these video vixens they all have ridiculously big butts. wale has said that he prefers and appreciates the black woman, so that is why he directed this particular message towards black women. rappers and the media have put black women at the bottom of the scale, and even more so have pressured them into believing they need to have light skin long straight hair and a fat ass to even be able to compete with other races of women. wale is just stepping up and saying that the… Read more »

I’m sorry but I must agree with him to an extent. U get injections in your behind to look “beautiful” “desirable” or sexy to yourself? ?? I’m not buying that. Miss me with those lies and self justifications. I believe most cosmetic surgery or procedures are done to mold others perception of you. Whether you do it for monetary gain or self esteem boosting at the end of the day it’s done to please others in return for thier desire or approval of you and your “enhanced features”

I applaud Wale for stepping up and saying something. I don’t see a problem with what he said and hate that he felt he had to delete it because of backlash. What I don’t like is that since something was directed at specifically black women, that people had a problem with it. It’s becoming the norm that people are backtracking on saying the black women are beautiful because it doesn’t include everyone else. Well we, as black women, are beautiful, in and of ourselves, without needing to mention other groups of people!

I have to agree with Wale on this one. If these women were getting injections for their own personal standards, then why so big? Yes women of African descent are known for having curves, but on average you don’t see such exaggerations as Miss Miami (the model featured). Why is having a butt that big even necessary? I can only imagine was physical discomforts it must cause. The thing is, these people who responded negatively are deep in their feelings. Wale is addressing the Black Community because his own community is what he is concerned with. I by no means… Read more »

I just saw an old 90s shabba ranks vid. Actually safaree samuels usurped his vid and used it himself. The dancers and hot girls were very slim with tiny bottoms. A bit more shapely than white women but these giant balloon animal butts are extremely rare. Black women are NOT shaped like these video vixens and these real housewives. Injections are running rampant.

Maybe he is gearing it towards black women because he’s black and would like black women to stop objectifying themselves and be themselves. Maybe he sees it mainly on black women because it’s common in atlanta and miami where the strip clubs are filled with black women. Blacks are objectified and sexualized at childhood.

He doesn’t care.

If he did care he’d know the truth about black women. Black women are doing big things in the US! We are out performing black men.

This paternalistic “sympathy” would be better aimed at his own group, the men who objectify buttocks to the point of throwing all their money at it.

I call b.s. on this from Wale. This is pure mockery to women, basically. First, he is assuming that the average black woman gives a hoot about what knuckle‐dragging, sexist rappers think, with lyrics like “hoe this, bitch that”, lyrics so inflammatory that I would be banned simply for quoting songs from rappers like Wale. Men create these insecurities in women, and now they want a pat on the back for realizing it’s wrong?! This is why men are always so far behind mentally than women. We allow men to get by with the bare minimum when it comes to… Read more »

I know for real. Those of us black girls that don’t have large butts.. got the message loud and clear that the black men that want a video h0e don’t want us. So why would we care anyways about butt enhancements unless we wanted to be attractive to superficial men.

I just find it ironic that you call the women angry for standing up for themselves but not Wale for judging them in the first place. There is something about black American culture that is incredibly hateful of its own women. It’s sick.

Good Job, Michelle. I don’t know what to say but women don’t need butt injections. If you want a big butt, eat more.
As far as butt enhancements, You can get cancer and maybe surgery to remove it. It’s not worth it. Everything will be trendy. Everything we see is trendy. Any women below who is commenting truth, Respect to you. I agree.

I love the fact that a black man is stating his love for a black women and that black women should love themselves more. I understand that some women do it for themselves, but some women do it for men and that is the point he is trying to convey, because to the media there is always something to fix about or on black women.

I don’t see a problem with what is Wale said. Is her wrong? Highly unlikely. If what he posts offend some black women then they must think he’s talking about them. I don’t have butt injections so his post doesn’t apply to me. So I’m not going to get upset. I agree with the other person in the comments. He’s not talking about Kim K because she’s not black. He’s talking to BLACK women only.

i don’t have a problem with anything he said. i wish people would stop being offended by every little thing, esp. in this instance when too many of these girls are doing this to get the eye of black women.

i just don’t think it’s always necessary to overthink things and bust out a feminist argument for everything. sometimes, you’ll just talk yourself into a bizarre contradictory rabbit hole when you do that. and yes, i believe in feminism. but there, what he said was not a bad thing at all.

I applaud Wale for standing up and saying what he did. No one is saying that other races don’t enhance their bodies. But him being a black man, that loves black women, is addressing us. Especially since we have a history in this country of being told we aren’t beautiful and that are bodies aren’t the right type of body.

mykicksarefromkroger
Guest
mykicksarefromkroger

I absolutely do not applaud him. For standing up to do what? Beat up black women in some thinly veiled apology?

Black women are the most educated group in America. We are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in America.

The entire reason butt injections exist is to emulate what some of us have naturally, the curves we are famous for.

This misplaced apology speaks less for black women as a group and more to the sort of women Wale surrounds himself with.

What are you talking about? Alot of black women get praised for being educated, but that’s not the point here. If you haven’t already noticed a lot of black women feel they need to meet certain expectations to make a man happy because of women like kim kardashian and ice t wife and amber rose. I see nothing wrong with him saying to his beautiful black women that they are beautiful without injections. Also if you read it clearly he said: WE LOVE YALL FOR BEING SEXY. BUT WE LOVE OTHER THINGS TOO. I guess that went over a few… Read more »

I think Wale was playing into a mythology of black women. If anything, his post speaks to the type of women he surrounds himself with. Black women are actually the MOST educated group in the US. We are a fast growing group of entrepreneurs and we have definitely outpaced black men. It’s funny we don’t see that mentioned.

To me, this feels super paternalistic and a case of misplaced sympathy. If someone wants a fake butt, why can’t they have it? Why the need to comfort a person who didn’t ask for his input?

It seems obvious to me that he is not talking to women who are happy with themselves they way they are based solely on the efforts they put in naturally. He is talking about women who get enhancements to improve their careers in an industry run by men that has encouraged them to alter their bodies this way. I believe he singled out black women because that is who he cares about. I am not sure what this backlash is about because it is well known that the entertainment industry is dominated by men and it is men’s opinions that… Read more »

Any black woman alive has the right to do whatever they want to their bodies for whatever reason ! Why are we so quick to judge? There has never been this much debate about any other cosmetic procedure. Why?? Why isn’t there the same debate about breast augmentation, liposuction or penis enhancements? Then we categorize buttock augmentation into one category: “Booty Shots” FYI.. There are various methods of the procedure such as fat transfer, implants, and the illegal black market injections that can cause deformities and even death.

It’s not fair how these women are lashing out on Wale in my eyes. I understand that the feminist in women may make them inexpedient when situations like this pop up. But if you really look into it for years black women have been constantly disappointed by black men and how they worship women of other races for their black attributes. Wale being a young black man has decided in his own way to let black women that he loves them and feels that he has done them a disfortune by making it seem like the big butt is the… Read more »

Maybe it’s me but only black men seem to be the ones who degrade their women as publicly as they possibly can — and by name too‐ even if the women they choose of all colors do this — somehow they ONLY pin it on black women.

I think a lot of Black women are argumentative and combative…just difficult for whatever reason.

I don’t care about what White women do…their men can speak to them. A BLACK man is saying, “You don’t have to mutilate your bodies to be attractive”, to BLACK women.

You are absolutely correct. There was nothing wrong with his message, and he is speaking specifically to Black Women. This is not about White women or non‐black women. Those women as a whole are not overly concerned with what a black man is desiring. We, black women, are the ones getting @$$ implants because black men project this image of an ideal black woman with a gargantuan @$$.

Wale should have never removed the meme. It was relevant and appropriate.

We have got to do better and not bully men or women that are trying to educate and elevate us.

As a black man we aren’t trying to minister to you; furthermore, most of your statement sounds to be coming from Southern American rap songs and street slang. I as a BLACK man love a beautiful BLACK woman who is confident in herself and what she has been blessed with. I won’t stay silent cause those types of women aren’t even attractive because ask me they have a lot of mental growth to do. BLACK women can win. I wish the majority of cotton picking male descendants would think that way. Love me some chocolate woman!!!

I’m missing your point. “You can’t win” isn’t talking about Black women…I’m talking about Black men. “As a Black man, WE…” No, as a Black man, YOU. Speak for yourself. CLEARLY Wale was attempting to “minister”, which means “encourage”. Why would you not be interested in that? SMH.

White women are shaped like that too‐the only difference is I know they get a lot less acceptance from their culture than we would. I’m black and I don’t have that body shape at all. I was teased mercilessly for only being busty and not curvy in the hips and ass. So most of the prejudice regarding my body has come from other black people.

I totally agree with you — I’m a curvy girl myself, naturally. I was referring to surgically enhanced women who mimick our appearance to monetize.

Bullshit white women aren’t naturally shaped like that . Iam not some young twenty year old so I know damn well white women just started getting bodies like this due to intermixing and the hormones in the food and black Dan in their vaccinations.

But most black women try their hardest to change their self to be something they’re not to get men because most black men date out their race,so it’s hard for black when to find a GOOD black man so they CHANGE themselves for the attention from Men in their own race

Women and men were created to please each other naturally. In natural order the woman is to serve and the man is to protect. My people always make the mistake of taking things like this too seriously in the wrong way. The man didn’t mean to say that only black women do this, he just is calling black women in general to appreciate themselves for who they are. This is something that is not common in black women for the most part. *Just saying* When you change yourself, you get what those changes attract. Real good black women don’t have… Read more »

I won’t emphasize anything on race or attraction. I will just say that a woman or man who knows themself n all that “her/him” encompasses should be real. N stayin real, unless it is for medical aid, there should be no butt enhancements. Sighs, but ppl do what they feel. Learn ta b REAL

I don’t a problem with anything Wale said. I wholeheartedly agree. For about 2 years I considered getting a BBL and breast implants just to please black men and even latino men (seeing as I live in a neighborhood filled with them) because it seems like that’s all they want is curvy curvy curvy. Big double d chest and huge wide backside. I’m a black woman who is slightly curvy, but it only shows when my clothes are off. I’m on the taller side and have a stick figure with clothes on, and my chest and backside are ok…something there… Read more »

If you happen to be a female who had surgery enhancements…is making sexual poses in your bra and panties taking pics in your bathroom mirror, and posting them up for anyone to see on Instagram…or any social media account for that matter…then you are automatically sending out a slut vibe. Would you post those pics if you were married and your husband could see them? Would you send it to your grandma? Don’t expect anyone to think you’re innocent if you put yourself out there like that. And don’t think anyone will respect you, either. I’m only referring to THESE… Read more »

All the black men I was friends with or dated (or was even related to) all told me the same thing: you’d look much more attractive if you put on more weight and had more curves”. (I was also heavily encouraged to “put some hair and make up on”, but that’s beside the point). The ones I dated were with me all while turning heads to admire the women whom they obviously found to be more attractive. This was justified by turning back to me to say, “see you could look like THAT.” Which led me to believe they were… Read more »
