I really don't care either way on this one. I voted on looks, so I went with Vanity.

As for J-Con, I was basing it more off looks than resume. Resume, of course, would have been an automatic J-Curtis.

You klnow Rae Dawn is just getting by because of who her dad is right? *happy 420 [stoners are always late]*

Honestly, not a big fan of either, but I'll go for Chong because Soul Man is absolutely classic (has a movie ever been more comically over the top racist?).

Don't really care. Vanity she's so vain she probably thought this competition was about her... yes I done went lame on that comment.

Bad seeding here.

Thanks for repping the 80's black girls!

Soul Man was not racist. It depicted racism, in a totally cheesy 80's way of course, including song montage...but it wasn't racist.

There is a big difference between depicting racism and being racist, i.e. The Last Airbender, 10,000 BC.

Sadly, the one we could use more of (like BORAT, for example) is often vilified these days, while the other which actually *does harm* gets a pass.
