These are the 6 Black Woman Youtubers With Over 1 Million Subscribers

Avatar • Dec 11, 2015

A few days back we highlighted ItsMyRayeRaye, one of the first black beauty vloggers to hit 1 million subscribers. But we wondered, are there more? As we did more digging we found that there is a small, but influential group of black woman YouTube content creators who have hit the 1 million subscriber mark.

My Life as Eva has 4,867,814 subscribers.

Teela Dunn? Have you actually watched her videos? She is a self‐hating BLACK girl who every now and then says she is mixed in order to please her audience. Have you seen her Common White Girl video? She’s not white… Sigh…Let’s do better people. These women might have the subbies but do they promote anything positive? Do they promote working to better their surrounding black communities? What exactly do some of these self‐hating negroes promote?

Just like Sammantha Maria,who hangs around with exclusively whites,has a white boyfriend,stated on youtube,she embraces her white side more because she feels its more relatable,down to her food choices,her style and lifestyle choices‐there is nothing black about her apart from her estranged Dad,who she doesn’t know.

That’s not what max is saying, max is saying that Sam relates or identifies with her white half more for the reasons she stated. Dating interracial doesn’t make u self‐hating but being self‐hating can cause you praise another race more…going off topic…anyway. She grew up like stereotypical “white” person and therefore is more likely to behave in a stereotypical “white” manner

So you have to eat certain foods, date certain people, and make certain lifestyle choices to be black? Oh, we’re back to this shit again. Okay. Well, I guess I’m not black then.

These aren’t social justice bloggers though. They’re beauty bloggers. I don’t know of many (any?) beauty bloggers who are known for “working to better their surrounding black communities”

ItsMyRayeRaye has said multiple times that she isnt mixed of any sort both of her parents and grandparents are black and it kind off annoys her when people think because of her light skin tone she cant be just black, Teala Dunn on the on the other hand has both black parents as well but acknowledges that she’s [allegedly] 50% German…alllll the time you should watch her hair routine video (All about my hair!!).…its.…“different” than how i normally see black people do their hair and care for it.

You seem to have an isuue with mixed people.….. To me mixed people are part of the black community since we have a lot of types of blacks:Light skinned,brown skinned,dark skinned,albinos,mixed,.….

This is a case of quantity vs quality. What exactly are they being highlighted for? Having over a million subscribers or for producing invaluable content? I’ve checked out their videos and in my opinion, I’m not sure if it’s the latter. There are many bloggers, forum contributors, youtubers, even power pinterest users that produce in my opinion some of the most invaluable information out there. Sort of like unsung heroes. Where readers/viewers focus on the information vs being infatuated with the person presenting it along with the bells and whistles that tend to come with it. Now I see why… Read more »

Are we here to tear down these successful black women? Is there something out there saying that there is a certain amount of melanin a black person must have to be considered Black? YouTube is a platform like many other businesses especially ones that put people in the limelight where people of color have to fight harder to get to the top. SO please don’t tear down these black women, because there are millions of people out there watching them every week!

Stating the obvious isn’t tearing them down. That’s a common gripe when someone brings up colorism, and if people think their content is whack, then so be it. It’s not like commenters are praising similar channels created by whites at the expense of these black/mixed‐ambiguously black women. Commenters here did not purposely go out looking for these names/channels to drag, the majority of which aren’t even on the radar of BGLH readers and are only being acknowledged now because they were offered up here for discussion. And I don’t even have to look hard to find posts written by BGLH… Read more »

Not to be critical but some of these women listed don’t even identify AS Black.

I’m not sure about the others… I’m all for uplifting Black women of all shades but it should be acknowledged (and respected) that not every Multi‐raced individual WANTS to claim their blackness.

It’s almost 2016 and black Americans are STILL grasping to the 1‐drop rule that white people gave you. RayeRaye is mixed at best. It smacks of desperation and a lack of identity to point to other race achievements and compliments etc and try to claim them for our black race. Barack Obama is CLEARLY bi‐racial, but has incorrectly been called the first black president by ignorant people. Saying he’s bi‐racial doesn’t take away his achievement or lessen black people. Halle Berry took the accolade of first black female Oscar winner. That is also factually incorrect. There are actual black people… Read more »

Okay wait. I am okay with Obama being called black. He has African ancestry thanks to his father. He identifies as black. **He looks black and is thus treated as a black person**. That last point is very important. If you have the lived experience of being black then you are black. Race is a social construct. If a person goes through life experiencing a certain social construct, then that lived experience is too true and real to define as an outsider. If a person like Obama goes through life associating with his black ancestry, identifying as it, and being… Read more »

I was not familiar with any of these people except Glozell so I read the comments and looked a few of them up. I can’t for the life of me see how anyone would describe Teala Dunn as looking racially ambiguous. The child looks black to me. I watched a video someone posted and her parents also look black to me. From the comments it seems Raye also has black parents. She looks black to me too. It could be we have a difference in perception. That’s cool. Many blacks have ancestors who have been in the US for hundreds… Read more »

As a light skinned black person, I have to say that diverse black women are not truly represented on this list. It’s not about jealousy. This is what America is telling us they want to see from our community as far as black women and IT IS insulting. I have never heard of any of these women so I clicked onto their channels and yes they are Eurocentric‐looking with the exception of Glozell.

You and I are on the same page. I am also no longer a loose natural and I am locking or dreadlocking my hair.

I am another woman who is now locked for life. I got way too tired of dealing with “THE PROCESS”, which includes 40 minute detangling, 1 hr styling, 10 minute conditioning, and 30 minute wash and deep conditioning. It was too much. All of that just for my thick, long super kinky 4c hair to shrink into a dry, tangled mass before the next dawn. I have sisterlocks now, and I am free.

Why not embrace your naps instead of making curls? My question to you aside, there’s a way to make your curls show out of your kinks. When hair is drenched, app,y gel right away, while pulling and stretching your hair as if you’re still washing it. As if you’re trying to make a ponytail. Keep stretching all over for at least 1–2 minutes with the gel applied. I saw this on a video for wash n goes on particularly kinky, 4c hair. I’ve tried it on my own 4c hair, and it works.

In this day an age, when you are white passing or ambiguous in your racial features, there is a such thing as identifying.

I have met many people who will cringe if you call them Black, even if they have one fully Black parent. In their eyes since they have light skin, light eyes, and loose wavy hair they don’t think of themselves as Black and would never call themselves that. That goes for a lot of people on this list.

Well there is more than one definition of black. Sure being dark skinned is one definition, but it is not the only definition. Since African American (not everyone like to be called this) and black are interchangeable in the us, I would argue that they are both referring to the same ethnic group(descendants of slaves) not necessarily a skin color. (Even Webster makes reference to this)

Additionally, you don’t have to have dark brown skin to be considered black in society. You can be perceived that way if you darker than the rest of a given population.

African Americans are just that African American and 90% of the African American population carry other ancestry besides African. Now if you are referring to African Americans that come from African (first or second generation) ex: Nigeria, Ghana, etc. they are most likely 100% african and are from africa. which then makes you comment valid. otherwise stop separating a group of people based on their complexion and personality.

Original black American are a group of slaves from various countries in Africa that were brought to American (and other countries.)

Alot of African Americans are around 65 to 70% African. and the other percentage is native american, european, melanesia, etc. Now your saying mixed people are not black but in reality some of them carry just as much african heritage as the african american whose parents are… Read more »
