In a controversial move, Amber Green, a white Caucasian woman, just registered to be on Weird Black Girl, a reality series showcasing unique African-American women.
James Rosenstein, the producer of the series, says, "Our show values diversity, inner strength, determination, and uniqueness. So while Green is outside the target demographic for this show, we will not discriminate. If she can prove herself to be a worthwhile guest on the show, then she at least won't get eliminated in the first season."
Current participants don't particularly think this is fair. Keisha Smith says, "I don't particularly think this is fair. Of course she'd be likely to win the title of Weirdest Black Girl, because obviously she's not a black girl at all, thus making her the weirdest black girl of all."
Deirdre Jones, another participant, says, "I don't think race politics is even part of the issue here. The ratings were just starting to slump, and the production team just brought in a white girl to increase ratings." When asked if Green could win, Jones simply asked, "Do you think Green can move her neck like this or like this, let alone twerk worth a damn?"
Don Pink who hosts WhiteFront, a white nationalist website, says. "It's about time that a white woman gets to compete in something for black women. My only question is why would she even want to? Sure, I get that she wants to win the grand prize, but is it worth the aggravation? And with the way everyone acts so ghetto on that show, I just think she's outmatched if that's what it takes to win."
So fans of the show will just have to wait and see what happens at the beginning of the season when Green arrives on the set. According to Green, "I'm just happy to be on the show. I'm not here to prove a point. I've always wanted to be on a reality series, and I've considered this to be quite an amazing show!" When asked about haters, Green says, "Yes, every black girl has her share of haters, and I don't expect to be treated any differently."
