Where Is Kim Porter?

- By Bossip Staff

Diddy’s favorite concubine Cassie has been named as one of the three new spokesmodels for “Carol’s Daughter” but not everyone is happy about it.

When we first announced the news, many people expressed disappointment at the lack of diversity reflected in the three spokesmodels, who all have complexions in the same beige spectrum and have all worn weave at one time or another. Cassie in particular has drawn a lot of black women’s ire because she is part Filipino and Mexican and only a quarter black. Do you think people are overreacting — and as a part black woman, Cassie has similar hair problems as the rest of us? Or do you think there is a valid point to be made, most black women don’t identify with Cassie because her of her differences in complexion and hair texture. We want to know what you think!

    why not??
    her beauty is undeniable, but black people are the main ones bowing to her because of her looks and hair. so yes put her up their.

      ugh stfu i really cant stand mixed people with the superiority complexed just coz yo daddy didnt like his black features. doesnt mean i dont like mine

    • LitsaLea

      @moi, try being a little more objective, please. No one asks to be born black, white, brown, mixed, etc. Being multi-racial comes with its own set of issues! So you’re argument that mixed people have a superiority “complex” is ignorant. Mixed people face prejudice from ALL fronts, you being an excellent example.

  • Kim

    if she is black then why not…even if she is 1/16 black lol

    • E.C. from D.C.

      I think it’s a bit more than that …. at least 1/4

  • Bunny(formerly Angel/UrHeiness)

    I anything,these companies care about using beautiful,women of color (despite the shade or ethnic background) to promote their line,which of course will reel in plenty of clients= lots of $$$ duh!

    B/c of all of the race mixing these days, I dnt see a problem with it.

    I just know tht I am SICK & TIRED of seeing these “Mardi Gras” headed mixed kids with hair all over their heads.

    Maybe showcasing Ca.s.s.i.e will get White mothers to buy AA products for their children & teach them how to COMB THEIR HAIR

    • white girl

      oh stop it rose…my baby hair always combed daily..

      lil bit of tht tui oil for the scalp n sum raw shea butter for the ends n my baby good 2 go…stop the hating already.my baby hair prolly look better thn urs neway ;P

  • Oh_Please

    It’s like using a mixed person with straight hair to sell relaxers……selling false hope

    • Vonn

      I agree. Most haircare products for Black folks are not for her grade of hair. She would be a better fit for the mixed chicks product line. False hope indeed!

    • Whatever

      Most of the models on the hair

      boxes are African or mixed.

  • what you say heffa

    Bre has beautiful hair, as does Summer, and Ya Ya, all who could use the exposure more than those selected.

  • rose by any other name 350 8914 ™

    where the h3ll is my comment? this site is officially wack!!

  • rose by any other name 350 8914 ™

    Halle Berry is more blacker than c.a.s.s.i.e. , she has a white mother and im sure white folks would be in a uproar if Halle berry modeled for white hair produts… they wouldnt like it… and where in the heck is kim porter when you need her?

  • Cuda Love!

    Sorry Ca.SSIE No …You have what some of my simple a.ss ppl call “GOOD HAIR” ..SO YOU DONT Rep blk kinky Swarthy hair …Where iz India Irie when you need her? ..She reps our type of hair!
    Total complete Fail!

  • rose by any other name 350 8914 ™

    LOL… Latins probably feel she too dark,,, but anyway Bre from ANTM would make a better maodel with her beautiful hair!

  • rose by any other name 350 8914 ™

    Thats just like the magazines, i quit buying a lot of the black hair mags because they have a lot of articles about hair growth formulas and the model have weave on so thats spreading false hope to the ones who actually believe that hair oil will make your hair grow that long … and the models have on weave!

    • still disagree

      thats the realest comment on this blog. HONESTLY< why do the Black hair mags do that? talking about ..'you too can get this hair with a 1 1/2'' barrel curling iron'….um no, she got that hair because someone WEAVED it in, then curled it.

      stop lieing to people.

  • monikah

    i want lauryn hill – macy gray – whoopi – jill scott – someone with 4a/b/c type hairs!! then i’ll believe – but their products are for those with 3a/b/c types ..

  • MR.MAKE.YA.FEELGOOD.(always read the fine print)

    If I was marketing a product for tall men, I wouldn’t use Jermaine Dupre. I wouldn’t use Wesly Smipes or Tyrese to market a tanning salon. I wouldn’t use a dogs pic on a can of cat food. I wouldn’t use a fat person in a add for skinny jeans. My point is that if it’s a product that’s primarily for black women then why not use one.

  • Nation

    no because shes not nappy headed like the majority of the perm babies

  • tkt

    @thicklikecornbread: preach sistah girl. I am so damn tired of these white broads with black kids (daughters) and cant comb there damn hair. Ugh!!!!!

  • STAR

    Everything black is not dark and happy head, as most of you should know. She obviously represents the growing look of mixed women and the swirl generation. We cannot use all black products on our hair because its comes in all different textures. If you have fine wavy hair, then a lot of other black products are too strong. This company realizes that because its hard to find black hair products for wavey or curly hair. That’s always been a problem that is just now being recognized. She is smart to capitalize on this from a business point of view.

  • moi

    i dont think she model for a black hair care product it is false advertising

    they should used her a range of products aimed at multi racial people

  • Benzy

    Also this girl tans a lot. She is actually very light skinned. Her mother is half black and half white mexican and her dad is filipino.

  • so what?

    What Benzy said. She has straight wavy hair and doesn’t have hair like the average mixed/black woman who has type 3 and 4 hair.

    This campaign has been a DISASTER!! So much bad press lol.

  • so what?

    Jay- STFU. Lol your 2nd and 3rd paragraph contradict each other! If you can’t have a sensible discussion on a thread about hair then you really should go away.

    • Jay

      Who cares about who sells a black woman hair. Most black women buy other women’s hair. You buy things from other women trying to portray other women’s lifestyles. How serious can a black woman be talking about hair care products when most black women purchase hair from other women or horses and put it on their head like its a ghetto negro pageant.

    • severine


      You’re a bit of a self hater yourself in your worship of white women, BUT you have a very valid point about black women and their hair hatred. We definitely need to put the weaves away, and yes white women wear weaves too but they wear weaves that closely match their own hair texture. WE don’t! Kinky hair weaves just don’t sell like INDIAN REMI, and there is no way in HE!! anyone can tell me that wearing other people’s hair all day everyday (a la Jennifer Hudson) is not a form of self hatred.

      The weave explosion is out of control. In Harlem they now have these mega stores on 125th dedicated to nothing but weaves, wigs and hair pieces in every color and texture imaginable. All run by Koreans of course :/

    • Jay

      I don’t worship white women at all, what I am saying is that some women’s priorities are not where it should be. What I am saying is that black women should represent themselves the best they can, not another image.
