I’m really sick of people suggesting that watching Scandal makes black women hypocrites.
Scandal is a FICTIONAL TELEVISION SHOW. Watching it does not mean you endorse adultery (which…let’s be real, that’s the TAMEST theme on the show) the same way loving Breaking Bad doesn’t mean I’m going to go out and start selling meth. You can be proud of Lupita, Kerry and Shonda because they’re incredible and inspiring black women who are opening doors and breaking down barriers in Hollywood. There’s no conflict of interest there.
If I wanna twerk on Thursday nights and give Shonda all my edges that’s my damn business. It doesn’t take away from the pride I felt when Lupita won her Oscar, nor is it “fucking it up” for anyone else.
Understandable people,it’s just an opinion. But I can’t see how ppl not only women I should of rephrased the entire thing, can post about that & other events when they come on then go do something in my opinion that is so degrading to a women such as twerking etc, That’s like me praising Martin Luther king , Malcolm x , Marcus Garvey etc. online & thousands of ppl like it. & you see me outside with my pants on my knees on the corner selling drugs & killin ppl. If this makes any sense to any of you. That’s all I was trying to get across
Forgive me, how exactly is watching Scandal and/or twerking, like selling drugs and killing people? Wait. Are you Don Lemon?Reblogged from thenovemberissue1988
