She really is the sort of Negro that makes White people feel at ease. She is what I call “comfortable Black” She makes White people feel comfortable about their privilege and historic (and contemporary) racist attitudes and behaviors. She claims her African ancestry but is in total denial of the major role that race plays in the lives of people of color. Her views on race and racism are sad, pitiful really.
How can you claim your Afro-Latin@ heritage and then flip and say that people of color don’t exist?
How can you claim that you are portraying the role of Nina Simone for “your sisters” and then deny the hardships and trials of Black women in Hollywood?
I’m really over her. She is living in some sort of a fantasy world where race does not effect your trajectory in life. Girl, bye! For real
I mean, when is she learning to pull teeth and make dentures?
