We See You Mrs.Tina Campbell

A conversation one man had with his friend.
“Why would you want to vote for someone who would hurt me?”
“I think Trump is the best choice.”
“But his policies will directly harm me, such as DACA. I am not documented, and Trump says he will end DACA, in which I will not be able to finish my degree, and I could be deported.”

His friend voted for Trump. The friendship ended.

I have heard mothers and children stop talking. I have witnessed broken marriages, friendships, and relationships ending because of this election.

Tina Campbell. You voted for Trump. You wrote a letter saying why you are praying for Trump. You argued that Hillary Clinton wasn’t a good candidate either. You equated Clinton to Trump and declared that Trump is better because he has Christian principles. You implied that Hillary doesn’t have Christian principles since Trump has them, which led you to cast your vote for him over Clinton.

Tina, you live in California, so your vote meant very little to elect Clinton, but your vote reveals your character.

The highest group of people who voted for Clinton is black women. Why would we vote for her over Trump? Let’s start with Black women are more likely to be the breadwinner in their homes. When Clinton speaks about a universal full-day Kindergarten and an expansion of Preschool that would accept all children without income requirement, well, that is a Black woman issue. When Clinton talks about income inequality, then we are talking about a Black woman issue. When Clinton talks about being respected in the workplace and having more clarity in suing in women discrimination cases, then that is a Black woman issue. When there are talks about making state colleges more affordable, then that is a Black woman issue.

These are just a few issues that Clinton discussed that hits Black women to their core since we are highly educated, yet we are the lowest paid and poorly treated. We know the implications of voting for a man who thinks it is acceptable to grab women by their genitalia without consent.

No one needed to know and no one ever cared about who you voted for Mrs. Campbell. But, we now that we know how you vote, we can assess your version of Christianity and how distant you really are from Black women. We buy your music, and I will never buy another song of Mary Mary in my lifetime. I cannot in good faith bob my head to any of your songs that are in my music library.

I can’t support because I don’t recognize your version of Christianity.

You voted for someone who is okay with having policies that hurt people. His policies hurt the people who buy and listen to your music. We are not all millionaires. We are thousand-aires, so having access to birth control in our health care policies, having access to quality schools that are for Pre-K and Kinder, and having more help with paying for college are things that are vital to our well-being. It is clear that you either don’t know us Black women anymore or you don’t care about us. Either way, your announcement is a gut punch to the hatefulness we are enduring at the hands of this current president.

So, you pray for your president. We will be praying as well.

We are praying for strength to keep fighting for our rights and for this presidency to end as swiftly as possible.

Lawrence must’ve had a seasonal positional at Best Buy because he is back but will he be in a full-time employee in Issa’s life?

Insecure delivered one of the most sickening episodes with “High-Like” episode 4, and not because they brought back breaking couch potato, Lawrence. It was the conversation about friendships and how things change. Dealing with real situations and how friends can all have something going on but also come to support one another. But for some of us seeing Lawrence made us wet and how us wondering why since we didn’t want to see him anymore.

The last 2 minutes as Issa walks in 7-Eleven after trying to assure Tiffany that things will be the same after she has her baby. Tiffany seems to be reluctant that it will be. Issa walks into the store to get some water and runs into Chad the Bluetooth wearing real estate agent. As she looked over to her left (in my Tweet voice) their goes Lawrence looking so good without a mustache OH MY! Issa’s looks as if she is excited and Chad’s mood is all of us!

Take a look at some of the reactions from Twitter as some said: “To hell with Lawrence!”

Black People Stay Winning! Tiffany Haddish & Katt Williams Win Emmys!

mm

Published

on

Tiffany Haddish made history last year for the being the first black female comedienne to host “Saturday Night Live.” Her performance garnered her a Creative Emmy for “best guest actress in a comedy.” During her SNL episode, Haddish addressed the hot button issue of sexual assault in Hollywood. It’s great that Haddish was able to bridge the gap between comedy and current events and get an Emmy for it! Haddish beat out Maya Rudolph, Jane Lynch, Tina Fey, and Wanda Sykes.

Another Emmy award winner we’re excited about is Katt Williams. The comedian won “best guest actor in a comedy” for his appearance on FX’s “Atlanta.” Katt Williams played Earn’s Uncle Willy and stole the show. This is great news because Williams career has gone through its ups and downs along with his personal life. With the Netflix special and this Emmy hopefully, this indicates that the “It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin'” comedian’s career is on an incline and we get to see him in more TV and film projects. Williams beat out Bryan Cranston, Donald Glover, Sterling K. Brown, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Bill Hader for the award.

It’s great to see black talent that would be classified as “ghetto” or “ratchet” win Emmy awards. This goes to show that that respectability politics isn’t ruling anything over here. Black people are being their authentic selves and getting awards for it.

Are y’all here for the Emmy’s now that we’re getting awards or are they still late like always? Let us know in the comments.
