Love & Hip Hop star Cyn Santana found herself defending comments she made on a two-year old podcast of Angela Yee’s “Lip Service.” Audio of Cyn making comments about Black men catering to Spanish women.
“They, black guys, cater to us Spanish girls, especially,” she said before stopping herself. “Like they – you know what, let me not even get into it. I didn’t mean it like that. Black girls are going to take it personal.”
As you can expect, Black women didn’t take to her words kindly, but Cyn took to Twitter to apologize and explain her former sentiments.
Cyn responded to fans who tweeted their concerns and admitted that she made a “bird” and ignorant statement while being naive to her own Afro-Latina ancestry.
Despite what one tweeter said, Cyn denied insinuating that Black men catering to Spanish women because of their attitude. Cyn was clearly in the wrong for what she said, but it isn’t a narrative we haven’t heard before.
Either way, the reality TV star handled her rebuttals well. She acknowledged her wrongdoing, made it a learning experience and didn’t run away from the conversation. We know a few celebs who can take a page out of her book. - Click here for the article: https://hellobeautiful.com/playlist/cyn-santana-responds-to-backlash-after-resurfaced-comments-black-men-cater-to-us-spanish-girls/

Latina women of African descent are racially similar to African American women. But are culturally different and will always be. The mentality is just different. And the reason why they deny their blackness (especially when they come to United States) is because of them distinguishing them selves as not being African American.
+Melanin Doll she high energy maybe too much but love it nontheless.I appreciate my sistas,they like us brothers got natural talent.Latinas are not our friends,black american brothers and sisters stop claiming people that hate you.We have no friends
HERE'S THE DEAL IT'S BASED ON YOUR LOOKS TO BE HONEST. BLACK WOMEN JUST DON'T WORKOUT AND EAT HEALTHY. LEAH GORDON IS ACTUALLY VERY PRETTY. YOUR SKIN COLOR DOES NOT MATTER. IT'S YOUR BODY. IF LEAH LOST SOME WEIGHT SHE WOULD BE AMAZING! BUT SEE WHEN BLACK WOMEN OR OVER WEIGHT YOU LOOK BAD EVEN MEN. WHEN PEOPLE LOOK AT YOU IT'S THE BODY THAT MAKES YOU ATTRACTIVE. IF YOU ARE FAT YOU WILL NOT BE ATTRACTIVE. A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF A BLACK QUEEN IS TONI MITCHELL HERE ON YOU TUBE. LOOK AT HER THEN YOU WILL SEE THE DIFFERENCE. IF YOU ARE IN SHAPE YOU WILL GET NOTICE IF YOU ARE PURPLE! YOU MUST WORKOUT AND EAT HEALTHY!!!!!!
black American men hate themselves and want lighter "exotic" women.... some Latinas take advantage of that, they like being treated like goddeses and being worshipped even if in a obsessive selfhating way
When I see brothers leaving or not dating black women & date Latina women i'm laughing because these women are extremely aggressive, nasty, and you just can't satisfy them. I just laugh and think what a headache...
Black Men like thier women black; but, not too black. Shame. I have natural hair. When I wear it curly you can see the optimism in Black men's faces as if I am other than fully BLACK.....shameful. Also met a Black man in Publix standing next to a brown woman with straight hair. When she left, folks asked if she was Dominican/ Hispanic. You can tell he was proud that she wasn't fully fully "Black". He even said cheerfully when she returned..." they guessed you where Dominican.???" Umph🤔. Also noticed that most Black men who are " color struck" are extremely dark skinned like Akon. They also are quick to DOG dark skinned Black women. ( e.g Kevin Hart) Shame, self hate.
I’m Latina and I’ve been watching a lot of black you tubers and it has educated me so much. I’m currently in college and we learned about how in colonial Mexico the Asian and Indigenous natives were treated better than the African slaves. It showed me how black people are always being put at the bottom of the totem pole even when compared to other minorities. Latin America is very colorist and they even have sayings like about bettering the race by marrying lighter people. It’s very sad. I wish more Latinos would reject this superiority mentality because there are Afro Latinos and black people have contributed so much like in Mexico but the history gets denied and covered up because of racism.
OF YOU NEVER HEARD SOMEONE SAY THEY ARE FRO LATINA ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE THE PROBLEM AND YOU LIVE IN A BUBBLE DONT COME OUT HERE SAYING OMGGG SHES SO BRAVE FOR BEING THE FIRST TO COME OUT AND SAY THAT. NO BITCH. YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY AFRO LATINOS YOU JUST DONT LIKE THAT THEY LIGHTSKINED
As an afro latina i noticed that if i say im mixed with African and claim it yall get mad "oh your not black your latina" even though im brown skinned with kinky hair and im very aware of were my features came from. Then on the other hand let me not claim it and say im not black, im just latina yall will come hard talking about "oh she think shes not black were does she think her skin color came from shes ignorant" just like they did with that dark lil Dominican girl saying shes not black. I have family darker than you and have always seen them as beautiful never thought i was better than anybody if anything i was told I'm too dark here in America. Alot of you are just fucking generalizing talking about "all you Latinas think your better" the fuck? when my aunty is literally more black then you are. Im js not all of us think that way
This because of black women treating there men..... We as black men are falling out of love with our women. How long can you be abused by someone blamed for everything wrong in black America.... and still be in love.....
And alot of the Latinas y'all black Americans girls talk about ARE NOT black Latinos they're mestiza white or mixed. So no they won't try to claim you because you are nothing to claim to them. Why would a racist claim black why would they treat black women with respect? You sound stupid.
And let's be real alot of you black Americans don't consider yourselves black or of African descent either. You claim Polynesian native American Indian Chinese call your kids Asia and Malaysia. Y'all have no space to erase anybody.
Did you just say that Amara being on the show is what prompted us to call ourselves black or afro latino? This is exactly why we consider you Americans, regardless of race, super ignorant. We have BEEN calling ourselves that. You just didn't know we existed?
Latina/o is a culture and some do have African blood but in their culture their is a benefit to gotten from acknowledging their white side and punishment for acknowledging their African side. So usually those who are blatantly black say they are not black.
I think the reason why you didn’t hear about afro latina is because when you think about latina women, we mostly think of jlo, shakira or a sofia vegara etc. amara la negra is one of the view women to be a successful black latina. Africans are not only shipped to America. I think it makes scense just how you guys are african americans, they are afro latinas. But the colorism is worse over there also. So you have a lot of african black people in latin-america saying their not black, when they are nearly 100% african. Latin is not a race yall just to clarify that
These black women know shit
as soon you start to see it in a MANS perspective
you ll see why we do it
First of all i go for Latinas because they (at least for me) cook and they treat me better than most black women i date with
Second of all most black women i date with they disrespect you in ways that you feel like they need a fuck to calm them
third and last thing Most black women are "independent, fierce and dont need a man" is this you slogan to attract men?
this is why i will never date or marry a black women i only stick to white or latinas so SUCK IT UP !!!!!!
I actually agree with cyn in the only reason why I agree is because all of my life people have considered me to be Hispanic and I am actually African-America in school I was treated different and also just in general jobs it was never hard for me to get a job or to fit in because I have seen the way black men in Spanish men treat black women when they know they are black because they didn't have knowledge that I was black and they didn't know what I was they just considered me Hispanic and I never really said anything because I didn't want to be treated different which was a bad thing because I didn't stand up for myself and understand up for my race the reason I didn't say anything was because like you said majority a Spanish women can be loud aggressive obnoxious have an attitude and it's considered spicy but when a black woman does it she's the aggressor she's the Angry Black Woman.
Do not look at me as a race but as a person and I guess that's basically why I didn't say anything it wasn't because I thought that I was better or I didn't want anyone to know I was black it was just that I want it if they did find out that I was black to see that all black people are not the same
Black Latina here Just wanted to say I appreciated the awareness you brought by bringing up this subject. I personally have always struggled and bc I’m a light hearted person to keep shit simple I just tell ppl LOOK culturally we are different but we have the same struggles . I speak a different language but I love all my ppl w color
I think it's like when did black people stop refering to themselves and Negros, and start calling themselves black and african american. That was just in the 80's.
With Amara, listen to her though!!!
she is making the argument that black latina women have it WORSE than black american women. Because in latin ameican culture black latins get nearly no media representation and still locked out of most higher status arenas.
JUST IN BRAZIL, THEY REMOVED A NATIONAL BEAUTY CONTESTANT WINNER BECAUSE SHE WAS TOO DARK. This is someone who won a competition.
So I don't think latin american women think they are better, black men think they are better, so when you have someone defering to you over their own women, how can they be seen as not enjoying or being flattered by that. Because these same women in thier own country, would be too black, or not light enough for the typical guy.
This is why I hate the term “women of color” because most times other non black women don’t like us but they love black men and imitating black women. Hell I only hang with black women because I just get tired of these non black women thinking they’re better than us all while copying us.
A lot of Latinos are ignorant like that there is Afro-Latinos, Afro-Antillanos, Afro Caribeños or Afro-Caribbean’s. We are well awarded of our mixture and descent. Being ignorant is not an excuse and unfortunately with the less usage of the term many Latinos dnt know about these 😒
Damn how you compared Kalena (maybe not spelling her name right) discussing her post partum and Cyn Santana discussing it as well, is AMAZING! I never even noticed that! You are very intelligent, I'm subscribing. We need more Black YouTubers like you because most of them just want to talk about hair and makeup. That is fine but we need to discuss topics important to our community!!!
Im glad you did your video because i thought hollywood was crazy talking about he never heard that term before. But now i see some people haven't. Another mistake people make is thinking all latinos have african ancestry, they dont many of the white, tan, and brown skin latinos have European(Spain) ancestry. Another thing is that the media and entertainment we get from these latino countries never show their large black populations so we assume they all are white, tan and brown. Thats why job application and cenus questions always ask white/black nonhispanic or hispanic.
Anyway you were not going over board these latinos are colorist in their own countries and they bring that mentality with them to the U.S.(that has not dealt with its own race issues).
Most White men LOVE Latinas. I know I do
They also are the highest INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE . White man/Hispanic woman. Although they are not a race and most are over 50% European so it really isn't IR dating.
Coming from this poor ass country and y'all think y'all better than black women I Gotta laugh shit blows my mind you dirty little Latinas sleeping with your uncle's your cousin's your daddy and your brothers sleeping with old ass men at a young age run away from home to be in the streets yeah y'all better than us NOT.next to white woman they next in line for the nastiest because they're so submissive and willing to do anything that man says as well as let him do as he want and controlling you just to keep him
I think these "black" women need to be mindful of the fact we "black" men are raised by "black" women. The bullet is only shot by the caliber of gun that can expel it. The hate within has to be looked at by the hate which created it.
Look I'm a black man and I will say unless you have dated a black woman you do not understand what us men have to deal with black women are the only women on earth who act just like men and they are the only group of women who you will ever hear say I don't need a man..if black women feel some kind of way about these shows they should stop supporting they are the number one supporters of these ratchet shows
Racism & colorism exist in every culture. Latinos come from just about every race/culture. So of course there are Latina women that feel that they are better than black american women. These women feel they are better than black Latinas as well. White supremacy has been pushing the narrative that anything black is bad & worthless since the beginning of time. This brainwashing is obviously working. Hollywood is an ignorant racist. Just because YOU haven't seen or heard the term "afro latino" in the media doesn't mean we haven't been claiming it forever.
Black people need to stop being dishonest, the narrative that black women, don't date out at the same rate as black men, is down to them having a greater love for the black community, is nothing short of a lie.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, the same problem that black men have, black women also have those same problems.
The only reason black women do not date out as much as black men is, purely down to, less white men are prepared to date black women, than white women, and black men.
Black women need to own who they are, if the truth is to be told, black women hold white women, in higher esteem, than black men, why else would they spend so much time, and more trying to look like one.
they have Spanish a cultural backgrounds first not black . In Mexico afo Mexicans are treated like black people in the US. They still today this practice all the African dance and music and food S . I've been there before they very friendly people . Once they are out of Mexico they are Spanish speaking first with Spanish culture first . I don't watch tv so can't help you with that . Dated before Mexicans because they not better any other chicks it that a very feminine women it's a cultural . background .
I honestly believe that there are a lot of kneegrows that do not like themselves. My sister you are being extremely unrealistic about other women. As if "other" people dot not endure a struggle in this life.
I wouldn't never publicly undermine my peoplelike a lot of these low-life kneegrows will. Ironically I laugh at their condemnation of "black" brothas & sister's while they
publicly diss themselves!😂 low expressions of human beings
Yes, I was at a restaurant on time with my man who is italian. We sat a table across a couple of puerto rican women. This woman was staring at my man licking her spoon like it was a penis. Obviously she was being disrespectful. He laughed it off, but I was fuming mad!
There a Youtuber names Monica Style Muse she is black and Latina she’s mixed and she dark skinned. She’s largely viewed as black but she openly expresses her Latina heritage you should look at her video about being too dark to be Latina
I know this isn't what this video is about but I wanted to state we also must focus on the mental illnesses going on in our communities which is the core problem...we hate to talk about them (bipolar, depression, BPD, etc). Anytime I tried to talk about my BPD none of my black friends/family/ ex took it serious, laughed and said I'm just crazy or "just pray"...I have finally decided to get treatment because I realized there is more going on than on the surface...all that black girl hate at a young age can do mental harm as well...just my opinion
I just wanted to “Latino” is not a RACE it’s a culture and there is black women that are Latina (Afro latinas ) and also white women that are Latina... they come in all different races, shades and verity.
Wowwww I’m just now tuning into most of your videos because I’m just getting time with school and all but whewwwwwwww chaleeeeee. I’m Caribbean and I say the same thing these women can get away with this behavior and people are like yesssss I love them because they’re “real” but black women been doing this since the dawn of time and people condemn us. We can’t have the same feelings because we’re not supposed to SOFT OR FEMININE. For the most part we don’t have feelings in the minds of others. It’s soooooo sad
media fucked our mentality, if i find a dark skinned girl that is not following the massa gods allah and jesus, a dark woman that love her natural hair and that doen not bleach skin then i can love her much more and put her on the pedestal. dark woman needs to have a piece of brain and not be rough, then dark men can love it.
Yo them Spanish people blk too. Everybody needs a race to feel better than... point out differences like until recently white women had no Ass.the traditional white woman ass is flat. How did they get they booty now..the white woman ass was like a ironing board straight back and forth. U know why a Mexican think he better that black, he use to tend to the white man horse. Blk women forgotten who they are. First off u rock every other race hair, take pride in yourselves, your family your race your God. Yous had the original Ass.all the other races never had the assets of the. If you don't respect yourself who do you expect to respect u ???. If Hollywood could dress kevin heart up ass a blk woman for jokes , wtf u think ??? Your kids ratchet, law breaking gang banging rapping pimps. You all let the family down when you let pookie start pimping . Every other race borrows from black people. How many tribes of man are there ? Someone educate me.
BTW...All women have lost the fundamental and simplistic nature that God gave you... We are in big trouble...because this new generation...think Twerking is a spiritual dance that brings plentiful crops, rain, a plentiful herd of livestock, etc... Tell-Lie-Vision vs Big Pharma vs mind control via half idiots controlling all that you see in the media...is the culprit...
Wow.... sorry I even came to the comment section. So many angry statements from Black women about Black men. We're not ALL like that, sheeeesh! Go ahead and "date outside your race"..... yeah! That'll sure show us! 🤷🤦🤣🤣💀💀💀
Truth be told. Those african women are the most superior on the earth. Over african american and Latinos. It's not even close. Some of rhe finest women on the planet in Africa with naturally monster asses.
Your channel has inspired me and informed me about Colourism I have always noticed it ... light skins ...going out in public with my friends and boys telling my friends straight to their face Ur cute but I want the light skin .......u know with the good hair and seeing curly girls left and right in my face... I’ve noticed my light skin privilege etc and it’s got to the point to were I don’t like that mentality of the whole light over dark ..... it annoying...... I think sometimes would this boy even still want me if my skin darker... u know
Black people love to invalidate the feelings that black women have, quite often. This is why black unity barely exists. Me saying barely is being too generous. When people preach about black unity I just laugh.
As for Latinas, I have had very solid friendships with them, but that's just my experience.
There were 12 million slave imported to South America. Argentina killed a lot of African from 1817 till today with bad healthcare and sending them to the front lines of war. Again, history is waiting for people to know it. 500,000 slave were imported to North America. The legal and Constitution of North America did not let the enslavement of people go on for long but her is the rub. Then the majority of Americans, knew we built up the America's but wanted African-American to go away. Anyway they could do it. Depressing, isn't for African-American people. Then seem to think they are worth nothing unless they are white.
Why do you black women want black men? most black men can’t get a job , are Incarcerated, are illiterate, make bastards globally , don’t take care of their kids, are extremely disrespectful, they are rapists, they are abusive as hell, and most of them are completely worthless. You black women need to move on and throw away black men the way they have thrown you away. I’m tired of seeing these videos , it’s like beating a dead horse. Let these other races of women carry the economic burden of raising a black bastard by themselves cuz the black baby daddies have left their ass for another non black ethnicity. And for crying out loud , let these foreign women protest for them when they get shot by cops, stop protesting , getting tear gassed and water hosed for a black bastard that will watch you get beaten , raped and killed by other black men without helping you. Stop it , just stop it. You black American women need to stick together because your men don’t care about you.
I'm from Belize and Guatemala. My heritage is Maya but also sense black slaves for exported to Belize and Guatemala and i have darker skin tone but I'm categorized as Latina. My skin color is much darker then other Guatemalans. I haven't taken a DNA test to prove if I have black heritage in me but i do find it frustrating that people can categorize Latinas as just being Mexican or light skin. Some Latinas do have really dark skin and are from Belize and might just have african slave heritage and ancestors.
We not losing none that don't wanna be kept we are not worried about Hispanic if anything blacks men go for white girls more if they not with BW but that's them if they low their standard s to fuck with dirty Hispanic their the most irrelevant race there is economic as well they have no lead that's why they copy Blacks so much !!
Low-key Latin America try to act like afro-latinx people can't common and do to the racist conditioning most aren't as proud as Amara or find a way to be labelled as white . It's fucked up down there smh
The most obvious issue is not addressed. It's about looks. Black men will regard a Latino woman as superior if she is more attractive than the black women he knows. Black men will regard more attractive women as superior to women who are not attractive. Get real.
Only reason why these black guys cater to these Latino woman's or white women's and Asians because they act more like woman's then you black women's! Black woman's want to be more masculine then the men's they are with! And I know you know about this YouTuber Tommy Sotomayor now you have this white man named JB Gunner talk about black woman's especially the ignorant one from out of the black community! Just tone it down stop trying to be a man all the FuCking man time! Let me tell you something gorgeous I'm a black Dominican these Latino woman's can't get away with nothing why you think they run too your black mEnS!
Actually I am a black guy blessed with millions of bucks and I am about to marry a black girl. My future queen.... love her more than anything. I always love my black ladies that look like me. For me black women are my choice and will always be. The reason why I love my black queens very much is because the first girlfriend I ever had was black and I had the happiest experience I have ever had with her compared to any other kind of woman I've dated. Vowed to always love and respect my kinds. Happiest guy ever.
I am a proud jamaican black woman. Bob Marley said " emancipate yourself from mental slavery non but ourselves can free our minds" whenever a black man puts down a black woman because of her color his is also hating on himself, him mother and sisters.
