    WHAT IS BEYONCE GETTING A NOD FOR, F-A-K-E-R-Y??? IF NOT SHE SHOULD BE. PLEASE NAACP, YOU ARE A PRESTIGOUS INSTITUTE, PLEASE DON’T DISCREDIT YOURSELF, TARNISH YOUR IMAGE, OR TRY TO MAKE FOOLS OUT OF US WITH THIS BULLSH*T NOD TO BEYONCE FOR ANY KIND OF AWARD THAT HONORS BLACK PEOPLE FOR THE POSITIVE IMAGE THAT THEY DISPLAY. WE KNOW HOW THIS WORKS, BEYONCE’S TRYING TO DIFFUSE HER LIES, AND AVERT THE ATTENTION, WHILE ALL THE WHILE TRYING TO STREGHNTHEN HER IMAGE. BUT, IF SHE WINS ANY AWARD FOR THIS, THE REPUTATION OF THE WHOLE ORGANIZTION WILL BE FOREVER TAINTED, AND VIEWED AS EASY TO BE SOLD TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. IT WILL LOUDLY SAY THAT IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH MONEY YOU CAN BUY AN IMAGE AWARD. (STAY OUT OF THIS S.C., AND LET THE CHIPS FALL WHERE THEY MAY.)
