Rapper takes partial blame for the unrealistic beauty standards placed on black women

America's obsession with butts, particularly in the black community, has led to some pretty twisted views on beauty and a few tragic outcomes (see here, here and here). Rapper Wale is doing his part to flip the script and let black women know they are perfect-- without any surgical enhancements.

On Wednesday, the 31-year-old star issued an apology on behalf of any man who ever made a woman feel as though she needed to alter her body in order to feel attractive. Wale's Instagram post was accompanied by a photo of a black woman who's likely gone under the knife to enhance her "assets."



He stated:

"I can speak for most of us... I'm sorry if I ever made yall feel like you need to ruin what God gave you.. Some girls say they don't care what nobody thinks .. I find it difficult to believe that one would alter they body this significantly for them selves ..it must feel like sittin in a stack of phone books when they use the potty . ladies I promise we like yall for bein sexy . But we LOVE yall for being everything else."

Well done, Wale. Well done.
