FHM Doesn’t Care About Black People

I understand that King and FHM Magazine have different readerships, but the latter’s 100 Sexiest Women list is just absurd.

Megan Fox, the actress who starred in last year’s Transformers movie, tops this year’s list. She’s kinda bad, so I’m not too mad about her position. I know FHM usually only picks a few token black chicks for these lists, but this is a bit extreme. Out of 100 selections, only four black women, Rihanna (14), Beyonce (20), Selita Ebanks (27) and Halle Berry (33), were featured on this year’s list. [See Entire FHM List Here]

Women like Nia Long, Lauren London, Meagan Good, Gabrielle Union, Sanaa Lathan, Melinda Williams, Paula Patton, Jessica Lucas, Stacey Dash and Melanie B, were all excluded. At first I thought the aforementioned women were omitted because they weren’t big enough, but I’m not convinced that college white boys know Selita Ebanks like that, so I doubt fame is that big of a factor.

According to FHM, nearly 9 million readers cast their votes for this year’s list. I’m thinking the list was fixed. I mean, even huge stars like Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey didn’t make it. Meanwhile, dudes had the nerve to put Ellen Page, the chick from Juno, on the list. Even worst, they put Maggie Gyllenhaal on there. Pfffttt! I’m no Polow Da Don, but I don’t discriminate. Bad is bad! I’d personally pick Alyssa Milano over Rihanna any day. But you can’t tell me Lauren London and Paula Patton aren’t more shaggedelic than Maggie freakin’ Gyllenhaal. Beg to differ? Speak on it!

    Yeah litte Juno was cute but she shouldn’t be on a sexy list over fuckin Newnew.

    I co-signs all that. I really can’t see how they missed Selita or Jessica White. White dudes love SI and Victoria’s Secret. Spank bank all day, son!

  • yoprince

    props.. better already.

    and lauren london and meagan good belong on every list..

    i’m good on alicia keys, she’s not sexy, beautiful, but not sexy.

    Coming from a nigga that knows from experience:

    Of all the ho–excuse me, WOMEN, that you mentioned above, only Meagan Good and Megan Fox still look banging after I’ve applied a pearl mustache to their upper lips, nahmean?! Megan Fox was a good choice for #1. Meagan Good might have taken the crown if not for her saggy, squishy titties. I can’t speak for the rest of them ladies, because, quite frankly, I don’t fuck losers.

    Depends on who did the voting. If its white dudes, they probably think of white chicks before they think of the black girls ( I am assuming here, so no hate my caucasian friends).
    So while Im sure they think all the chicks you named are hot, they probably just picking ones who they fawn over first.
    Also never underestimate the power of internet fanboys. Some of these girls have tons of fansites or are on some major movie or TV show with a built in fan audience ( I wouldnt be suprised if the people who voted Maggie Gylenhall are Batman fanboys. Seriously, the Nolan/Bale Batman movies have a RABID internet audience). So little weird anomalies like that are gonna give you result like this.

    Still though, Alicia and Mariah should have made the list but I guess they didnt do any recent FHM or Maxim shoots in the past year so it is what it is……and what it is, I aint exactly sure fam lol.

      This is a good point…what if KING did a sexiest list? Wouldn’t it look totally different and wouldn’t it cater to one demographic?

      I could introduce you to 100 dudes that think Buffie the Body is the boot. They’re all white but that’s beside the point…

  • Negro Please

    Jackpot,

    First and foremost, congrats on not getting fired because of Purple He-mans comments the other day. I mean you should prolly watch the back of your monitor, the way that INet thug was bashing you.

    As for the absence of the darker skinned girls on the list, I dont know what to tell you. I mean Megan Fox spits hot fire, but Mariah and Alica are still banging like a blind chef in a teflon kitchen. Maybe its like Prophecy said and there are some nerdy fanboy toys out there pushing votes like residents in Florida…

    Who knows maybe the Alica and Mariah votes had dimled chads like in 2000… the colored crowd should prolly call for a recount? What do I know though, Im just a lowly internet blog commentor.

    Big ups on the good post and your good grammar and spelling. Haha fluck all the haters Jackpot.

    With that being said you still handing out job offers (I need som new rims for my 83 Citation)?

    Fuck-Outta-Here

  • og bobby j

    Was Vida Guerra on the list? I know she old news now but thats a bad bitch. Plus, hood certified ghetto chicks aint making the list in a pro white magazine….bottomline. I bet the editors brought the idea up that they need more black faces, but that idea got shot down like sean bell (to soon?).

      Way Too Soon!

    Amerie is hotter than anyone mentioned here. I think Bol likes Maggie Gyllenhaal, ask him why.

  • That Nigger

    Dude you suck, hang it the fuck up. You are the Soulja Boy of blogging.

    • Negro Please

      Yeah, ummm… wow. Your comment has changed my life.

      I think i will become a follower of “That Nigger” now. Maybe you and Purple Huggies can start a blog together. Im sure i would love to read what you two jackasses have to say.

      I-Net thugs are so… passe.

  • Gooch

    It’s not that FHM doesn’t care about black people, it’s that black people don’t care about FHM. So why put women of color on a list that only white people will read, and have them scratching their heads as to who these people are? Same reason why we don’t put Kevin Federline in XXL

  • Prophecy_Projectz

    King should do one of these hot 100 polls.

  • POLO DIZ

    …YO…UMM…IF THE LIST WASNT RELEVANT…THEN THERE SHOULDNT BE AN ISSUE ON IT…but i think if black folk dont get respect in any other magazine or in america for that matter….aint no way more than a hand full of chiccs gon be mention on that list…thats life… U CAN JACC OFF TO SOMETHIN ELSE BESIDES HALLE OR ALICIA….FUCIT!

    FINALLY something we all can agree on (slightly)

  • http://www.rockthedub.com khal

    how lauren london didnt make the list is beyond me. i put one pic up of her sometime last year, and STILL get hits off my blog from that pic.

  • http://myspace.com/rhymeorreasonny Roblynn

    Good Blog, very much in agreement

  • Marvin

    that FHM list is voted on by the public, so unless black people don’t know how to use the internet to vote, the results just mean that in general, black women aren’t as attractive as women of other races. sorry, facts are facts.

    alyssa milano always has been dope, but pickin her over ri-ri???? i dont know bout dat doggie???

  • henry

    hey where you that guy at sohh.com who took picture at celebrity partys

  • Not A Beleiver

    As a woman I whole heartedly agree. That list is skewed. It is clearly the point of view from an over the hill non-black individual at FHM.

  • CHUN

    If you wanna do something good for the site, please sort out the rss feeds. Safe

    How are they supposed to take your gripes seriously when these “Black men’s” magazines don’t even see the beauty in the their own women when most of the time light-skinned and non-black women are feautured as well???

  • tiff

    you totally win! you’re right on every single point. and ellen page is totally not sexy, ew. she’s cute at most. it’s so gross that they have people like her on the SEXIEST list! lol whatever! fhm sucks anyway.

  • b.SophiaLoren

    Speak on it! I’m You are so right about Maggie G…. I had to go check to see if I was reading right. Thank you for standing up for the sisters….. Lauren London would make me go gay (not that I would, or that I’m not) but she was sooooooo pretty in ATL…

  • J

    The real crime here is them having someone like Halle Berry at #33. They usually always have her in the top 10. LOL! But anyhow, I will say this…this is a white peoples list, there for there will only be a certain amount of black people on it.

    Someone like Halle Berry always has made the list because her beauty is universal. White folks love her as much as black folks. Thanks to Beyonce’s popularity over the past few years she makes the list (but sooner or later they will have her falling off)…and so on. White folks don’t know who Lauren Londen or Jessica Lucas is unfortounatly. And Selita Ebanks looks like a praying mantis so I don’t even know why she is on the list, they could have given her spot away to a more deserving black woman.

    Anyhow, anyone that takes their career seriously, could care less about those list. Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie are Oscar winners, you honastly think they care about those stupid list? Someone like Meagan Fox, who’s career depends on her being fly and sexy, needs those list for exposure much more then those women do at this point.

  • Carnella Jones

    You know FHM is not one of OUR magazines; we don’t make up the majority their their audience. WE are probably not well-represented on the committee of people who pulled this list out of their …

    Well, you understand. Certainly not for us, definitely not by us.

  • PURPLE HULK

    WTF DO YOU CARE?
    DID YOU VOTE?

  • BX POSTER CHILD

    ALYSSA MILANO OVA RIHANNA???

    GO FUCKIN KILL YASELF!!!!

    AND THESE BLOGGERS WANNA KNO Y WE ALWAYZ CRITICIZING EM. MAYBE THEY SHOULD STOP POSTIN STUPID SHIT LIKE DAT!!

    P.S. ALICIA KEYS AND MARIAH CAREY ARENT FULL BLACK. THEY ONLY PART BLACK, SO U CANT USE EM AS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW FHM DONT CARE BOUT BLACK WOMEN

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    This is another case of Black Women being Sexy,Thick and Freaky, but, not as Facially pretty as Latinas,Anglos,Francos and such. Also popular media portrays Black Women as mean and stuck-up and with too much damn attitude(which is usually True), while other Races of sexy women know how to finesse their way into gettin shit that a Black Woman would get if they didn’t act so shitty. Also most Black Women nowadays act very Dykish, they might not be a Dyke, but, most Black Women nowadays act too damn rough.

  • Tiago218

    You make perfectly good sense, but lets take a good look at the list. This list was conducted by hundreds or millions of men online who voted. Another point is why don’t your magazine make a list o 100 sexiest women that does not include bootie popping and breast showing.

  • LeTrac

    Perhaps FHM would be more inclined to feature black chicks if your publication were inclined to feature more than racially ambiguous mixed chicks.

    The folk at XXL really don’t have shit to say.

  • PURPLE HULK

    AND THE POLL ON THIS SITE IS FUCKING UP.
    SMH AT SAYING THIS SITE IS THE BEST WHEN YOU CANT EVEN RUN A FAIR POLL.
