Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)

this is why i just think people of color created and were behind everything ever. No matter what it is, it comes back to a person of color being behind it, and real talk 70% of the time its a black person or African civilization

shit. I didn’t know they stole her whole look too



^^^The bolded…

THIS picture is actually Helen Kane…
http://helenkane.wikia.com/wiki/Helen_Kane

Helen Kane tried to sue Paramount claiming that Betty Boop creators stole her singing style when in fact she stole Esther’s “booping” style in the first place. wrong picture or not the Betty Boop cartoon’s voice and singing style was taken from Esther Jones. They simply used a caricature of Helen Kane for the character’s look

^ ties into what i’m saying……… that her whole image is being erased and shadowed by someone else..

Racist Video Game Created Following Mike Brown Murder
If you were ever unsure that your voice, money and all other available resources are needed in the fight towards seeking justice for murdered teenager Mike Brown and against racism in America, this should be all the proof you need.
A website titled “Pop A N****r” has surfaced online that allows visitors to play a game where they see how many Mike Brown targets they can shoot while playing as Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who gunned down an unarmed, 18-year-old Brown with six of 10 fired shots as he had his hands up in the air to represent a surrender.
Let’s continue to do all that we can to seek #JUSTICEFORMIKEBROWN and fight against racism in our country. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Source
But…instead of getting mad at this and the scum who created this, get in our box and tell us we are living in a post racial society. Get in our box and tell us to stop generalizing. Get in our box and tell us that race isn’t an issue. Get in our box and tell us to ‘get over it’. Get in out box and tell us about how we always pull ‘the race card’. Please.
