Grits = Slave Food Now?

ray-j1

Does anyone follow Ray J on social media? I do not, but I was on instagram and happend to keep seeing a video of him on the popular page so of course, curiosity struck me and I watched the video. Not, that this will be a surprise to anyone who is aware of the racism in this world but Ray J said he was disturbed by a comment made by Naomi Judd. Apparently, if you like grtis, get this, it is now considered a SLAVE FOOD.

In the video Ray J explains that he was on his way to do a new project for Fox and when he got on set all things were good for a while until Naomi made a random comment. Apparently, Naomi Judd said she would rather starve then eat that slave food, referring to grits.

Well of course that comment is an insult and Ray J and his sister Brandy felt some type of way. You could tell in the video that Ray J was really hurt more than angry because he then goes on to say that “I thought we were all just trying to be better people in America.”  Which is so true but so many people are stuck in their ways and will continue to transfer that hate down to their children, that seeing people just as people without color factoring in seems impossible.

What Is Life?

I know everyone has seen the social media post of George Zimmerman putting the gun he used to murder Trayvon Martin up for sale, correct? Well, if you haven’t not to long ago he did and social media went up in such an apparent uproar that the bid was removed. However, I think the bid was removed for more technical reasons then just that.

A lot of fake bids started to come in and the site decided to remove the gun. Here we are thinking that these people actually care about the inhumane reason for putting that gun up for sale but they did not. This was taken so much for a joke that the bid was actually placed right back up a few minutes later and the bids started rolling in again.

The bids got up to about 400,000 yesterday and today it was confirmed that the gun was sold for over 120,000 DOLLARS. I guess that’s what African American lives worth nowadays, huh? Our lives are as much of a mockery as they were about 25 years ago, right?

This news disgusted me but we all need to know what is happening in this crazy, crazy world. If there is more good than bad than the outcome has to change, it has to.

Did Draya Really Get You Fired?

The power of social media is actually scary, very much so real and unfortunate at times for some people. It allows anyone, from anywhere, to say and comment on anything without giving identity or with any credibility. I know you all have seen the clapback posts that the Shade Room does correct? Well, there was a most recent one done with Draya and a random nurse somewhere in the world, not to long ago that resulted in the woman losing her job. How did it get that far?

Not to long ago the woman commented on Draya’s picture accusing her of abandoning her children and then proceeded to talk about how her mom never cared about her. Draya, commented back letting her know she shouldn’t come for her family and she should watch her words considering the fact she works at a hospital and with kids. Draya said she thinks her actions and words showed bullying and lack of compassion which is not a good representation for whatever hospital she worked at.

Well, everything Draya said played into effect and she lost her job. Now, this woman is on the site “GoFundMe” with a goal of 10,000 because she has kids and bills to pay. So here’s my question, should people really have mercy on her? Because at this point you are only sorry because you actually lost your job for giving you unwanted opinion. I hate that people think they can be so big and bad on social media and then hide behind it without taking responsibility for their words.

This woman needs some help emotionally clearly, if Draya living her life made her so mad and she is grown with a lot of her own business to tend to.

News Flash: Please do not be a grown person acting like you’re in high school, there’s no room for you anywhere.

So my question still stands: Did Draya get her fired or did she do it to herself?
