I Don’t Care About Slavery

untitled1well i didn’t say it!
steve harvey did.
on his talk show as a matter of fact.
the question to him from an older snow bunny was:

“i am not a history buff,
but the people around me are.
how do escape conversations about history that go over my head?”

in a nutshell.
well this is what he replied to her…

tumblr_niywmlpTMM1tctsp9o1_400…if that is not the most IGNORANT statement to tell someone.
the fact she said:

“omg thats awesome…”

the fact i saw a black hand clapping was also disturbing.
i know she didn’t ask me,
but i’ll answer it correctly for our poor steve.
how about she say:

“well i’m not big in history topics,
but i am listening and taking mental notes as you all discuss.
i find this conversation very interesting and learning a lot.”

you could be thinking about a monkey taking a dump.
it takes charisma to pull that off tho.
in my honest opinion,
there is a level of IGNORANCE that makes say/do something steve suggested.
she sounds passive aggressive and he sounds like a dumb ass.
how about listen in and maybe learn something?
just stand there and smile.
wait for the subject to shift and then walk away if you have too.
now there are 5 topics that get people in there feelings:

politics
religion
(black) history
skin color
sexuality and the down low

if you know you are not skilled in those areas of discussion,
and you don’t want to give an opinion,
just smile and say:

“i don’t really have an opinion on this topic,
but i’m listening from the sidelines.
*insert laugh*
this is a very interesting conversation tho.”

thats it.
you look better that way.

lowkey: i wonder if he will try that same method when asked about the holocaust?
ya know,
in front of his jewish bosses.

smh.

  1. Okay, let me see I am able to do damage control from a public relations perspective for Steve:

    To all historians, black and white, and my brothers and sisters in the black community from all generations and walks of life past, present, and the future that awaits, I would like to extend my deepest and most sincerest of apologies in regards to the insensitive and comical nature of my comments. I have nothing but the profound respect for the academic teachings that deal with the historical narratives of our country and the evolutionary issues that have shaped our society. It is important to have philosophical and ideological discussions so that we can better understand the significance of their place in history, and I truly believe that it is imperative for all of us, as individuals, to engage in such forums in order to gain a better perspective.

    Sincerely,

    Broderick Steven (Steve) Harvey

  2. Very poor taste indeed. Obviously he never heard of time repeating itself. If we were to erase slavery from the history books then it will likely repeat itself. Back then the black people didn’t know they were slaves until they set free. And I’m not in the mood to be somebody’s slave

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
