The marketing maven strikes again. People act like she is doing so much when she is doing little more than attaching her name to others efforts.

Here  we  go again, Beyonce  makes the slightest movement and   people act like she  created the  heavens and the earth. I guess it isn't bad enough that  her songwriters have to come out and explain what her hit songs are really about. I mean I would too though if I  wrote something  beautiful and had to watch people talk about how someone else is a genius and speculate that it's about someone else's life. Now instead of songwriters, Beyonce has stolen the shine from her fans.

Beyonce fans have donated approximately $82,000 towards the contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Piggy backing off of the  issue that was at the time dominating the media as she has done more and more recently,  Beyonce announced that she would donate a portion of the proceeds from  her Formation tour to aid the residents of  Flint, Michigan. She  sure  could afford to, she dropped an album and promoted a tour without any promotional money spent by tying herself into the issues that Black society were focused on at the time.

Earlier this  year  she used the  Black Lives Matters movement to push her  video for Formation which  was visually powerful while lyrically a rachet ghetto  mess.

She has said  not one  word about the injustices that permeate society  right now. Nothing about Black men and women dying at the hands of police  regularly, the water  crisis in  Flint, Michigan, A hate fueled, racism filled election, yet she still manages to  capitalize off them.

Some will praise her for her “donations”, some will even tell me that she  cares because she bailed out some  Baltimore  protestors after the  riot last year. SOME however, will understand that those “donations” get written off at the end of the year and she will get  much of it back. Some ALSO will ignore that the  fact that she used her fans money to “donate” not her own. I'm sure the multi- millionaire just forgot to add her own money to aid the Flint residents.

Some will ignore the differences in the words DONATE and RAISE and as the  Huffington Post says Beyonce “made good on her promise to raise significant funds” to assist the residents of Flint, Michigan. Beyonce  did  raise that money, she turned over a  check for $82,234 to the United Way of Genesee County earlier this week through her management company Parkwood Entertainment.

The $82,324 was raised through Beyonce's fans who were given the option of  supporting the  Flint fund as they purchased their tickets.

I Myself  am of the opinion that if Beyonce  cared about what is happening in  Flint she'd open her mouth and speak. Why is it okay for her to talk about supporting them but ONLY with the money she gets  from the people who come to her concert.  Could you imagine if she  did a PSA telling her fans to donate to Flint? Can you imagine if INSTEAD of charging hundreds of dollars to  see her perform and then asking for an additional donation of  YOUR money she told you where to send it to support the residents in Flint, Michigan?

Here's where you remind me that Beyonce is  doing so much  charity work right now that I should be ashamed to say these things. You'll remind me that Bey also gifted 14 Detroit sophomores with $1000 upon their enrollment to college and tickets to her concert

You'll say  she's being a philanthropist, I say  she's an opportunist. The singer has a history of dropping major projects and announcing  tours without spending any promotional money. I say she is using the causes important to the Black community to keep good publicity  going. Already people are buzzing about the  joint album she and  jay-Z are  rumored to have recorded for release after the tour ends. Everyone praises this woman as if she's cares so much about the Black community, why? Because she donates some time and money from her fans? This woman hasn't done and interview in so long, none of us know anything about how this woman feels. Not even me, I don't pretend to know what she thinks or feels. What I  do know is that her marketing team is amazing.

Beyonce sings and dances but I swear some people act like she walks on water. Hell no one even cares that she’s running a sweatshop  in Sri Lanka wtf

 

Congratulations  Beyhive you rock! You assisted  the resident of  Flint Michigan, YOU  did  a great job.
