I was degraded when a black actress got a leading lady award for getting buck naked on camera with a nasty looking white man - and asking him to make her feel good. Which leads me to comment that the most handsome and famous black actor didn't get a leading man award until he was a dirty cop and cheater - degrading.
I find it degrading when women parade on stage in swim suits and get their self-worth judged on beauty and average talent skills for money and recognition while Donald Trump sits back and rolls in the dough - degrading.
Any female singer that has to shake her behind in every video, especially if it's so grand that Oprah wants to learn how to do it, roll around on stage, wear outfits that are nothing but baby doll nighties and boy shorts - degrading.
I'm degraded when the same black singer consistantly puts out negative relationship songs for women to boo-hoo to and listen to while having self pity parties. Is your self-worth based on a man and every time one hurts you you have to cry about it? Thank goodness she has no more drama in her life.
Which brings me to the next young lady. I was horribly degraded when an American idol glorified being a baby mama and told everyone it was ok to be a baby mama. For the single mothers - there is 'Thanks for My Child'. And most of the songs from that baby mama album - pity party songs about not being wanted by some man. That's degrading.
