    Black celebs keep saying dumb things as the years go by, and now a quote from the "happy boy",.......

    “new black” doesn't blame other races for our issues. The “new black” dreams and realizes that it’s not a pigmentation; it’s a mentality. And it’s either going to work for you, or it’s going to work against you. And you’ve got to pick the side you’re gonna be on." -Pharrell Williams

    These comments were made while on where else Oprah! lol quite a fitting stage.

    SOunds like another LL Cool J moment. That's what happens when you're ignorant and know nothing about history. Not even recent history.

    Excerpt from South Africa during Apartheid
    http://overcomingapartheid.msu.edu/sidebar.php?id=65-258-8

    Life as a Political Prisoner
    By Robert Vassen

    When they arrived on the island they were given prison garb, and even here, apartheid was in evidence: the non-Africans were given long trousers and socks, while the Africans were given short trousers and no socks. This was both calculated and sinister in intent. In the South Africa of the time, all Africans regardless of age were referred to, and often even called, “girls” or “boys.” The message was loud and clear: “Boys wear short trousers!” To complete this wardrobe, all prisoners were given a canvas jacket, a shirt, and a jersey (or sweater).

    Also, why is it that when many of us get up in their, we take on white views and opinions? Is there a memo going around that says that when you get in, the first order of biznezz is to say the black struggle is over with, and blacks need to stop whining about some fictitious thing called racism....

    The "new black"...he better watch it, let him step wrong and those same white folks whoes rump he's kissing will show him he's just a plain old.....you know the term:cool:


    Peace!

    maybe it's the white views that get us in there to begin with. perhaps that is the selection mechanism?
    i have heard successful blacks in NYC talking about 'new black' and 'post black'.
    it is a lack of empathy. as long as they get their's they don't care about the rest if us.
    in fact, they look down on the rest of us. we need to fix that.

    At the end of the day, White man got the bigger bank. If money was my end-all be-all I'd probably be in the White man's camp too. Though probably not.
