You can’t understand what it’s like for someone else until you’ve had to put on their shoes.
it’s easy to judge until we have been in the same situation as another.
some of us beez like:
“I see what Jamari was talking about now.”
“I see what Mo’Nique was talking about now.”
as tami roman in the bonnet chronicles would say:
“get into it.”
i didn’t understand mo’nique a few years ago when she was going off.
she had all the smoke for lee daniels,
and tyler perry.
they are three of the most powerful black folks in the industry.
“she should have played the game” is one thing i use to say.
“she is talking too much” was another.
it wasn’t until i had a similar experience a year later…
