i never felt intimidated by white folks.
even though my time in high school was short,
i was only around like 2-3 of them.
they all grew up in the hood so it was different kind of “white”.
the white twink foxes seem to get all the good black pipe,
but even still,
that doesn’t really phase me at all.
aoki lee simmons is only 16 years old.
she wrote a poem on her ig that she quickly deleted.
it was about her feeling sensitive about white vixens and well…
why does this poem sound like it should be about black women?
she is young,
so i won’t drag her,
but that poem is realllllllllllllllllllllly problematic.
i have to remember she grew up in a different forest than i did.
and even yourself have a different forest view than the privileged.
this can even go for some of our black celebs out here.
they tend to live in a bubble and forget their “real world” experiences.
this is not to say that aoki lee doesn’t have issues,
but that poem clearly shows me that she:
a) doesn’t have black friends
b) is insecure af
from my corporate america experiences and being on the ground:
White women are super privileged
…and some use that privilege to get what they want or cause mayhem.
hell some of the white transplants have overrun the city,
trying to act like what they think a “tough new yawker” should be.
don’t even get me started on the hipsters…
hopefully college will introduce aoki lee to see other experiences.
she needs her bubble popped.
