Womp Womp Womp… Tameka “FAKER” Raymond is Being Accused of Plagiarism

- By Bossip Staff

Just when people started to feel sorry for Tameka… yeah right. Nothing that this chick does is real. Tameka Foster is being accused of plagiarizing the essay that she wrote for the Huffington Post, She’s Pretty for a Dark-Skinned Girl. The author, Aisha Curry, of the book Pretty for a Black Girl says that Usher’s ex-gold digger is not original with her work. Like this is really a surprise….

It was my work! It was my work, my voice, but in her words. I was frozen. Tears began rolling down my face as I read line after line after line. I couldn’t believe it. The idea that someone could gain notoriety from an issue that I first brought to the forefront is mind boggling. People were praising her for tackling an issue that had never been exposed. Hello?!? I wrote the book on it and started it years ago. The only difference between her article and my book is she used ‘dark-skinned’ and I used ‘Black.

I cannot and will not say she stole my idea because you never should assume. However, I will say that it seemed like one heck of a coincidence, and everything I touched on, she did.”

Tameka’s publicist sent BV Buzz an inflammatory statement, however the gist of it read: “Tameka has never even heard of the book you referenced nor does she believe you even deserve a response.”

Tameka was already put on time out about two months ago for sending death threats to a blogger and this is the way she decides to make a come back. She should just stick to popping out kids for a check because nothing else seems to be securing them funds.

    THE SUBJECT ISN’T NEW, LADY J, BUT THE SIMPLE FACT THAT THE AUTHOR TOOK HER TIME AND WROTE THIS, HAD IT PUBLISHED, AND CAN’T MAKE ANY MONEY OFF OF IT IS WRONG!!! HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF SOMEONE TOOK CREDIT FOR SOMETHING YOU PUT YOUR HEART AND SOUL IN TO GIVE TO THE WORLD, AND SOMEONE ELSE STOLE CREDIT FOR IT??? NO, I THINK SHE SHOULD BE THROWN IN JAIL FOR STEALING, BE CAUSE IN ESSENCE, THAT IS WHAT SHE DID….SORRY, TAMEKA AIN’T CATCHING A BREAK WITH ME, BOO……:twisted:

  • Unkle Ruckus

    Maybe she thought she was “sampling”? I read Ms. Curry’s book back in the day and it struck me how familiar the subject matter was with Tameka’s. SMH, then show my pimp hand.

  • KMB926

    LMAO! Don’t make me laugh!!!

  • BlackSuperior

    You guys are crazy, a lot of dark black girl have gone through what she wrote in the email, damnit. Held I even had people over the years say, you are cute for a dark-skinned girl. Like what the hell thats suppose means when I thought about it.

  • Alrighty Then...

    I believe she really feels/felt that way about herself. However, that, and the fact that she took someone else’s story, changed the words, and presented it as her own is indeed a problem.
    Does she really have that hard of a time conveying her own thoughts? If so, like I said, why not just CREDIT THE AUTHOR?

  • JB (8 months and it will be time for March Madness. Until then Are You Ready for Some Football?)

    I love your post Re. How was Brazil?

LETS TRY IT THIS WAY WHAT IF ASHTON MARRIED AN OLDER BLACK ACTRESS LETS SAY ANGELA BASSETT, I WONDER WHAT HIS CAREER WOULD OF HAVE BEEN LIKE TO THIS DAY. MMMMMMMMMM!

  • Tru Love

    How is using someone elses Topic plagiarizing?? This woman is obviously upset and jealous that her book didn’t sell and Tameka got alot of attention for her “essay”. She even admitted that it was Tameka’s words and not her own. Maybe whe need to look in webster and get the definition of plagiarism. That topic is not unique to any of them.
