Yesterday when I saw new pics of Beyonce post-baby, I was so amazed at how beautiful she looked with her new motherhood curves, only to get on twitter and other popular message boards and have my moment ruined with so much negativity surrounding Beyonce’s pregnancy. There are still people out there that believe Beyonce faked her whole pregnancy, and I just can’t wrap my mind around their logic, considering they don’t have any concrete proof to make such allegations. Believing this mess, is just as crazy to me, as believing President Obama was born in Kenya to a teenage American mother traveling across the world nine months pregnant back in 1961. I guess it is…what it is, and  hopefully the Knowles, Carter, and Rowland families can drown out the noise of the baby-bumpers, to focus on what’s important, Blue Ivy.

I want to see more pictures of Beyonce post-baby like the one below, and I want to eventually see pictures of the beautiful Blue Ivy. The main people hating on the Knowles or the same people flocking to the internet to see more pics. *scratches head*

It seems like Beyonce has done everything right, and for some reason that’s so hard for people to love. I read an interesting article on Huffington Post by Rev Michael Water, about Jay-Z and Beyonce and how they have re-established the traditional family unit in the hip-hop culture. I’m scared that all of this negative baby-bumper talk is just another way to tear down the black family.  I understood the outrage with Alicia Keys and Fantasia because families were broken apart, but in this situation, Jay-Z and Beyonce are creating a family with both a mother and father together in matrimony, without cheating on or tearing apart another black family.  So why are you so mad?

Honestly, I hoped that my generation, the hip-hop generation (or Generation X), deeply scarred by the absence of their own fathers, would not repeat their fathers’ mistakes. Increasingly, I see my hopes dashed. As a pastor, I recently came to the grim recognition that of the last fifteen children that I have baptized, only four times was the father present to participate in the celebration of the sacrament. Of those fathers present, only one father was married to the woman with whom the child was conceived at the time of the baptism. And for me, it appears as if the trend of fatherless baptisms will continue in the near future.

Today, many families are “redefined” at the very point of conception as marriage is no longer considered a prerequisite towards beginning a family. I applaud Jay-Z and Beyonce for accomplishing what many in my generation have failed to do, breaking the cycle of absenteeism established by their parents’ generation. {Read the rest at Huffington Post}

Someone tell me please, where is this Beyonce hate coming form??? This can’t be a ploy to sell magazines, there has to be something more to this level of hatred.
