White Hot!


Maybe if I was married to Kunta Kanye and had given birth to the worlds most adorable mulatto’s;  spent the majority of my adult life cultivating a silicon body that would rival a ‘2 Live Crew’dancer, and finally, bronzed and spray-tanned myself to a crisp Ethiopian brown, maybe, just maybe I would think I was black enough to tell a black person how to feel about racism and forgiveness.  

But see, here’s the thing;  if I were a white woman of Armenian descent who was married to an African-American man and the mother of two semi-African-American children,  I would NEVER presume to understand how the hateful comments of a ranting social-climber would affect my life or the lives of an already ‘race sensitive’ group who’s history is steeped in institutional and systemic discrimination.  
But I’m not a Kardshian so I haven’t mastered the art of cultural appropriation (boxer braids), highly-insensitive faux pas’s (Pepsi ad) and fake apologies (For speaking on something you knew nothing about);  but I can assure you that in both scenarios I’d probably just ‘shut the fuck up’ and mind my damn business. 


But that’s just me!
