what does she really know about the american ghetto? she's never lived in any according to her own article. rather, she seems to be basing her understanding on stereotypes and what she's heard or seen in the media. which ironically, is what americans are likely basing their view of the safety of her home country.
see how that works? you live somewhere others view as unsafe and dangerous...yet, instead, you feel fine, comfy and at home.
look...i don't doubt she has finally come to the realization...
that racism is real... all over the world...especially here.
that perhaps aa's not collectively boot strapping it on up the american dream ladder could be a little bit more complicated than what a simple just do it slogan could ever solve.
i'm sure she now now realizes yt folks here don't really consider her a special equal kind of kneegrow in the way she perhaps previously thought they would.
but do i really give a f*ck about her chronicling how she's done everything opposite of aa's and still wasn't accepted by yt? no i don't because i already knew how alladat was gonna work out for her. its not as if this strategy hasn't already been tested and failed many many times by various aa's throughout history...
