    WOW! Black Police, when you first arrived your comments were -- sort of -- original and sometimes insightful, but as of late you've become a boring little prick. You "nag" and nit-pick more than an eighty year nun. Get it together - man?

    I am relieved to see the underrepresented light-skinned sisters are finally getting jobs in Hollywood.

    She's hardly light-skinned. That picture's lighting makes her seem lighter than she is.

    Megalyn is the same skin tone as Elise Neal:,0,214,314_.jpg

    Side note: Her skin is gorgeous. It's so smooth and blemish free.
