Dear “Celebrities:” Stop glorifying slavery
Dear Soulja Boy and Kimberly Daniels,
So, we’re thankful for slavery now? Um…I just…
Soulja Boy, I’ll start with you, since, when it comes to expectations, no one sets the bar lower.
Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we’d still be in Africa. We wouldn’t be here to get this ice and tattoos.
Seriously? I know the public education system has taken a hit in the past few years, but I know you weren’t taught the Emancipation Proclamation divvied up the contents of Cartier among slaves. You think that slave traders’ ultimate goal was for Black people was to coon out on BET exhibiting an IQ no higher than Satan’s basement? Don’t answer that.
Kimberly Daniels, while running for Jacksonville City Council you claimed
And if it wasn’t for slavery, I might be somewhere in Africa worshiping a tree.
Why must I cry? So you’re a Christian; have you not read The Bible? Specifically when Philip spreads the Word through Ethiopia through one of the Queen’s servants? Africa had Christianity long before America existed. Furthermore, have you been to church in Africa? Sunrise to midnight service isn’t a Steve Harvey joke, that’s first Sunday.
To the both of you – we’re talking about slavery. Millions of people were stolen from their homelands, died in the Middle Passage, tortured, denied education, denied the right to marry…I could go on for 10 more pages. But I am your people, and I’m here for you. My advice – just go away. Soulja Boy, your last album went dirt, and you probably have hamster-sized STDs courtesy of Kat Stacks. Kimberly Daniels, few Black women political candidates get media attention…unless they’re doing something especially crazy…which you are. Quit being “the-one-who-further-stereotypes-will-be-based-on” and drop out of the race. It doesn’t mean you’ll be unemployed. Herman Cain is hiring.
I am your people. Read the comments for advice from my people.
