  1. Gabrielle is so pretty and I can’t lie, it’s nice to see a dark brown sister working steadily in Hollywood.

  2. Great for her!!!!! She’s gorgeous & cares about the community.

  3. I soooo love her! I think she’s gorgeous too! I kinda hate when people say she’s boring! I think there are more celebrities who look more boring than she ever will.

  4. Gabrielle Union represent black women in the entertainment industry real well. Boring or not she has class, college graduate, and a pretty brown sista on top of that. Be happy that we have someone like Gabrielle Union to represent for us brown skin sistas like us rather then someone who is half black .I like her because she is full blooded black and don’t try to claim she is mixed with something else.

    Shout out to the rest of my brown skin sistas that are representing for in the entertainment industry with class.

  5. Much luv to Gabrielle. She`s a gorgeous BROWN SISTA who`s very intelligent as well. It`s great to see her take such interest in the community and not forget where she can from.

    As for the boring comments that may be thrown her way; well that`s what we, as a people, do. This sista actually has something to say when she opens her mouth and that`s what we consider boring…. Sometimes you have to be amused at us just to keep from crying. The ones who probably can`t hold an intelligent conversation when it comes to current affairs are the ones who we consider FLY… You know, the ones with the pretty faces who are always going to Paris for the latest fashions… The ones who are always up on the latest Gucci bags as well as shoes.

    If you were to ask these same sistas, “To name the 4 branches of Government” they`d probably have the deer in the highlight look, but o they`re so FLY… They can always chill in their overpriced designer sunglasses. Well my vote goes to Gabby, keep doin` you my BROWN SISTA!!!

    All you gotta do is just walk away and pass me by
    Don`t acknowledge my smile when I try to say hello to you, yeah
    And all you gotta do is not answer my calls when I`m trying
    to get through
    To keep me wondering why, when all I can do is sigh
    I just wanna touch you

    I just wanna touch and kiss
    And I wish that I could be with you tonight
    You give me butterflies inside, inside and I

  6. It’s always nice to see a celebrity take part in somthing that is so important as this. I’ve always liked her and this is just another reason to keep showing her my support.

  7. I cosign with Toy. I have never seen a photo of her as radiant as this. I mean she is glowing in this pic! Maybe advocating for others rights is a hidden passion or a calling.

    Go Gabby!

  8. She is just too pretty! I like her, and will always wish her the best.

  9. I have a feeling this will turn into a mixed, light/dark thing. Yet the same “brown” people will go to a beyonce post in lightning speed.

  10. she forever showing up somewhere, I wonder what’s her next project!
