Okay, so about a month ago Tomi Lahren made a very interesting comment regarding Beyoncé performance at the 2016 Super Bowl. Tomi and many others alike were the least thrilled, and that’s okay, she doesn’t have to like it. However, I did find it hilarious that she felt the need to blasphemies the intent of the Black Lives Matter movement and spread a minority myth that blacks are the only ones looting a neighborhood.
Pretty darn sure the thought hadn’t crossed Tomi’s mind that looting is universal, even for people that look like her. Know what else I found quite interestingly odd? That she had the nerve to insinuate that Beyonce was using her fame for a political agenda to “overthrow white domination” these were Miss Lahren’s exact words.
People like her don’t acknowledge what is going on in their own community, and diminishing others. Has the nerve to label, the Black Panther party as a terrorist group, but deflects her answers about the KKK. Tomi’s one of those people who feels the need to insert her superiority over someone and dictate how they should act. Bye, Stacey!
So a while back I was watching the premiere of the new television series called “Boss Nails” a Miami nail shop owned by Dana Cody, a twenty-something-year-old black woman trying to further her business to the top. I love seeing a woman I share a commonality with to me it is very inspiring seeing someone young like me doing it big. However, there is something I found troubling in one of the scenes that I just can’t wrap my mind around.
As I was watching it was revealed that Dana is married to George Tiechner, who is the seventy-seven-year-old father of Aviva Drescher, haven’t heard of her? Does the Real Housewives of New York ring any bell? Dana talked about the issue of people immediately perceiving her relationship to her husband like she’s his whore and do you know what this fool said? “You’re my whore you are my everything” I’m dead serious!
First off, you shouldn’t think of your wife as a whore even in a light-hearted sense, you just shouldn’t. It’s bad enough that there’s an overwhelming stereotype of a black woman being seen by a white man that she automatically a hooker, and do you know what Dana did? She laughs it off! Needless to say, no partner of mine would talk to me like that Dana, don’t tolerate foolishness like that especially if that is not your character.
