    In light of her new world tour which includes Madonna surfboarding on a black woman and a "gypsy" themed section, the time has come to go over some of Madonna's most racist, culturally appropriative and insensitive moments.

    Ignoring the apologetic portayal of the supposed "Queen of Pop" by the mainstream media, this ONTD Original is supposed to serve as a reminder of what Madonna truly is and how she got away with it all.

    Despite what most people believe, Madonna has been racist and downright unapologetic about her racism (no pun intended) for 25+ years.

    So here are some of Madonna's most racist moments:

    • Madonna did a photoshoot in blackface and doesn't get what's wrong with it.

    In one of her Rolling Stone interviews, Madonna admitted that she did a whole photoshoot in blackface for her 2008 Hard Candy album, which was heavily inspired by r’n’b music and was produced by Pharrell Williams and Timbaland. She  wanted to call the album "Black Madonna".
    "I did a photo shoot with Steven Klein for my last album cover, and I painted my face black, except for red lips and white eyes. It was a play on words. Have you ever heard of the Black Madonna? It has layers of meaning, and for a minute, I thought it would be a fun title for my record. Then I thought, 'Twenty-five percent of the world might get this, probably less. It's not worth it.' It happens all the time, because my references are usually off the Richter scale. That's why I have people like Guy [Oseary, her manager] in my life who look at me and go, 'No, you are not doing that.'", she said.
    Madonna says her manager put a stop to the publication of the said photoshoot, complaining that people “wouldn’t get” her blackface. Later on, the same photographer used the same concept (pictured above) for a photoshoot that caused controversy.

    • Madonna used the N-word.

    Last year, Madonna took to Instagram to post a picture of her son Rocco and hastagged the picture with the racist slur.
    When shit hit the fan and people started to call her out for it, Madonna did something most media outlets didn’t report on. She didn’t apologize until a day later when her PR team took over. Before that, she was being vile on Instagram and attacking people for calling her out for the use of the N-word.

    „Ok let me start this again. #get off my dick haters!“, she said.

    Days after the scandal, Madonna brought her son David to The Grammy Red Carpet. This has never happened before or after this scandal:

    • Madonna called Barrack Obama a 'black muslim'

    During her MDNA World Tour in 2012, Madonna showed her ignorance by calling President Obama a ‘black muslim’.
    For better or for worse, all right, we have a black Muslim in the White House, OK? Now that is some shit. That's some amazing shit.," she preached to her fans.

    • Madonna believes all black men are inherently sexist.

    Despite being tied up to a chair and beaten up by white man, Madonna believes black men are the ones who disrespected her the most. She says that her black partners disrespect women because it’s a “cultural thing” for them to hate on women because black men grew up without fathers.
    Yes, she really said this.
    “I’ve always in this naive way identified with other minorities because I’m in a minority. You think that somehow unifies you in some philosophical way. But ultimately it doesn’t. Because I’ve found that being a strong female is actually more frightening to the black men that I’ve dated. It took me a really long time to accept that. I believe that I have never been treated more disrespectfully as a woman than by the black men that I’ve dated. I’ve never actually said that to anybody, but it’s true and I think it’s a cultural thing. So many black men grow up without fathers, without strong male figures, without a sense of romance and seeing a man treat a woman with respect.– Madonna, Spin Magazine, 1998

    • Madonna believes all black women are inherently submissive.

    In the same interview, Madonna messily tries to explain the reasons why black women are „more willing“ to accept abuse from a black man.
    „I think black men have just been shit on for so long, that, in a way, black women are maybe more willing to accept rage from a black man, because they see what’s happened to them. They grew up without fathers…“

    • Madonna faked a charity in Malawi and wasted $3.8 million dollars on “salaries, cars, office space and golf course membership, free housing and a car and driver for the school’s director”.

    Despite using it for several photo-ops and preaching about an educational crisis in Malawi, Madonna didn’t care that the same charity that promised to build schools squandered the money. “Raising Malawi Academy for Girls“ wasn't built and the money was instead spent by the 'charity' managers connected to the shady Kabbalah Centre.
    Even worse, this 'charity' left Malawi villagers broke and homeless after taking the land for the supposed 'school' (which wasn't built) and never properly compensating them for the land.

    • Madonna defiled a Martin Luther King picture to promote her #RebelHeart album.

    The cover of Rebel Heart features a close-up of Madonna's face wrapped in a BDSM-alluding tangle of black cord. Then, she she Instagrammed images of Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Bob Marley, seemingly oblivious to the concept that a white artist who's made various forms of black music throughout her career showing images of civil rights icons tied up in cord is demeaning.

    • Madonna surfboards on a black woman on her new tour.

    During yesterday's lukewarm opening of Madonna's new Rebel Heart Tour, Madonna performed one of her new songs on a stripping pole cross. The problematic part? She uses a black woman as a surfboard to stand on while she spins around the pole.

    Following several accousations of racism during her Rebel Heart promo blitz, the Rebel Heart Tour kicked of in a small arena in Montereal to an unenthusiastic reaction.Madonna's first show - like many others - wasn't sold out.

    • Madonna still believes she is more disenfranchised than the black community.

    In her recent interview with Out Magazine, Madonna once again compared different disenfranchised groups like it’s a competition. She concluded her thoughts by saying that all other groups have gotten some rights, while she, as a white woman, still has it worst.

    "It’s moved along for the gay community, for the African-American community, but women are still just trading on their ass. To me, the last great frontier is women." – Madonna,  Out Magazine, 2005.

    The Honest Company, founded by Jessica Alba, launched its beauty site today, Honest Beauty. While the Honest Company focuses on baby products and home cleaning supplies, Honest Beauty is all about make up and skin care.  The line includes 8 colors for foundations and  the website features a diverse array of models, so you can easily see how a product might look on your skin tone, plus make up tutorials by Alba herself.

    In her words, “I am a woman of color and when I started acting when I was twelve years old, good lord, it was hard to find some good foundation. And I just felt like every other beauty line made me feel like I needed to be somebody else.”  While some ONTDers are pressed that she struggles with a multi-ethnic identity, Alba's European & Mexican roots inspired her inclusive take on the sites products & marketing.  The sensitive snowflake ONTDers will appreciate that Honest Beauty products are not tested on animals and are free of parabens and synthetic dyes & fragrances.

    She worked on "Get the Look" video tutorials (won't embed, but you can watch on the site) where she demonstrates some of the products- really helpful, since it's nice to see how different prodcuts apply.  She said making the tutorials gave her a new respect for Youtubers who do nothing but put make up on all day on camera.

    Prices are somewhere between make-up counter brands and higher-end drugstore brands.  A sheer lip crayon runs about $18 and it's $28 for a 1 ounce tube of tinted moisturizer with SPF 20... I wouldn't rely on the SPF though (see next cut).  Just like with the Honest Company, customers can "Bundle" and get regular shipments of prducts to save money.  A free trial will get you a cute sampler, but then they'll charge you $50 for the 3-product-bundles after that unless you call to cancel.  If it's like Honest Co, you can space out your bundles farther apart than 1 month if you need to.

    Jessica and other women of color may need their naturally protective melanin, becuase the Honest Co is facing a $5 Million lawsuit that their sunscreen is ineffective & mislabelled.  Photos of sunburns have been cropping up on social media, posted by people who used the Honest Company Sunblock and still got fried.  Alba says the lawsuit is "baseless" and she emphasized that people need to understand that natural mineral-based sunscreens need to be re-applied frequently, as they don't penetrate the skin the way chemical sunscreens do.  I've used it and I agree - it has a different consistency than chemical-based types.

    ONTD, what marketing angle are you using for your new make-up line?

    Paraphrasing is mine; sources are Yahoo article and Honest Beauty.

    On how she's changed since becoming a household name:
    "You want to know how I’ve changed? I’m so scared to say anything now. I can see every negative way that people can take it, and I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining. 'Oh, she’s so conceited now. Oh, she’s so jaded now.' It probably comes from Googling myself. If it were up to me, I would not talk. I would just act."

    On being scrutinized by total strangers:
    "Why do I care what people think? But I do. I just can’t pretend I don’t care. I get really insecure about it. The world makes an opinion of you without ever meeting you. That worry should not bother me, but it does. It bothers me."

    On how her perceptions about being famous have shifted over time:
    "I don’t feel like I’m being dragged by anything anymore. I feel more in control. I’m calmer. I know that there’s no point to feeling anxious all day, so I try not to. I’m still scared, but it’s about different things. Now, I worry about — [Trails off and shifts a bit uncomfortably on the sofa.] Okay, get ahold of yourself, Jennifer. This is not therapy."

    On dealing with Anxiety:
    "I have a prescription. I find a certain peace by thinking of me in public as sort of an avatar self. You out there can have the avatar me. I can keep me. And I just try to acknowledge that this scrutiny is stressful, and that anyone would find it stressful. So I’ve got to try to let it go, and try to be myself, and focus on important things, like picking up dog poop.”
