7. Why is your blog dedicated to just black girls? I think the concept of this blog is racist…

8. Why is the blog called fuckyeahdarkgirls? I find it derogatory and an insult to dark skin women/black women…

  • This blog was created to cause (positive) impact, and the name is in no way intended to cause or implicate offence to any race.
  • The blogging platform tumblr is synonymous for having blogs display a theme or topic with the title being “fuckyeah(topic-title)” to emphasise the admiration of that topic in question.
  • If you have a quick tumblr search, you’ll find that most topics (celebrities, food, interests  sports etc..) already have a “fuckyeah” So when fuckyeahdarkgirls was created, the creator was shocked to find that the URL/Title was available, this further showed the need for such a blog.
  • Also with the wide use of the term “fuckyeah” in the blogging world, we found that we could reach a wider audience fast.
  • We understand that not everyone is “down” with new age slang/terms so we’re always open to other views. Occasionally we will take a vote from our fans to see if they would prefer a name change. You can message us any time with your thoughts on this.
