Creative Loafing columnist and The Root.Com editor Nsenga Burton is fired up about the coverage of Tay-Tay. In a column on The Root.Com, Burton argues the media skewered Fantasia for her alleged affair with a married man. However, the media swooned over Keys’ affair with producer Swizz Beats.

Burton argues the double-standard is because Keys is a light-skinned biracial beauty. Fantasia isn’t.

The piece is vintage Burton – fiery and pointed. What do you think? Read the column and tell us what you think. Is there a double standard?
