Guy Brings His White Girlfriend To Barbershop And Gets Hated On
REBLOGGING AGAIN A MUST WATCH
@tjayy watch this video lol it’s bout you &nd your gf.
There’s a lot to unpack. But a good watch.
As Antoine said: there is A LOT to unpack here. A good watch, sure. But I don’t do well with surface level engagement of tough subjects. And that’s what this seems like, in part. I get it. Treat everyone how you want to be treated. Yes. Kumbaya! I. Get. It. But so much of what the young Black woman (who I understand is an actress) was saying IS legitimate. Not all of it, but some of it was. The equating of a white girl feeling attacked because she’s dating a Black man, with Black people who have dealt and deal with racism within the confines of this country is a false equivalent, in my opinion.
Again: a good watch, but much to unpack and discuss free of the Kumbaya, cotton candy, “We Are The World” coddling. Not every necessary conversation is going to be easy to have. Tears will be shed. Feelings will be hurt. Beliefs will be challenged. And, perhaps, folks won’t walk away with anything resolved. That’s the nature of the beast and *we* can’t be afraid to tackle things head on and let the cards fall where they may, initially.
Okay, I’m done. *steps off soapbox*
I hated this shit
