Wait, Do All Lives Matter?

My opinions are very unpopular, because I tend to use my brain before making a decision. Although I do screw up, a lot. I’m not a celebrity, nor do I screw up via social media. Celebrities need to think before they tweet, snapchat, post a photo on Instagram, or even speak out their mouth. Celebrities nowadays have more deleted tweets than record sales. 

Fetty Wap was recently criticized by the blacklivesmatter community for tweeting, 

My kids are Mixed… #AllLivesMatter

Now I do not fault Fetty Wap for thinking about his children, but let’s be clear, Fetty Wap’s kids aren’t the children living in the hood getting shot on a daily basis. I’m just tired of artists and entertainers using Black America to get famous and then turn their backs on us. 

Apparently Stacey Dash has always had this crazy perspective on life. During her high school years, she was called “Crazy Stacey” for the things she’s said and done. After reading her interview with Vice, it’s clear she uses her upbringing to fuel her outlook on society, instead of using reality. 

Jesses Williams shared a passionate speech at the BET awards, and of course Dash had something to say about it.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday’s awards show proves it,” Dash began, before focusing on Williams’ speech, which she believes was “nothing short of an attack on white people.

Right, the same white people that supported you in your first role when you starred in “Clueless”. Or the same white people that bought a ticket to see “Mo Money” it’s opening week. Dash had no complaints when she was being aired on BET three to four times a week, but now that she’s built a status, she forgot about the past. I understand people change, but if Dash feels that passionate about BET, she should give them their money back. You can’t bite the hand that fed you all those years, it’s not allowed. And that goes for Wendy Williams as well too.

Wendy Williams recently went on air and said,

 “On the other hand, I would be really offended if there was a school that was known as a historically white college. We have historically black colleges. What if there was the National Organization for White People, only? There’s the NAACP.”

First off Wendy, I graduated from a HBCU, Johnson C Smith Univeristy. And the reason HBCUs were created, was because towards the end of slavery, schools were still segregated, and nobody wanted blacks to attend their neighboring schools. So some rich white men got together, and began creating schools, for blacks, so that we would be able to have somewhat of an education. Williams must not realize that she is still somewhat black. And that if she was born a 100 years earlier, her black ass would’ve been in front the class, attending an HBCU.

My only problem with all these AllLivesMatter celebrities, is why didn’t you appeal to those groups when you began your career. Why are you appealing to the black community, only to leave us when you start making money? If all lives really mattered to you, don’t take that Black Entertainment Television paycheck, and don’t visit these black schools, because you don’t support us. 

When Fetty Wap released “My Way”, I did not hear one white person singing it. When Stacey Dash was in “Clueless”, I didn’t not see one white person watching it. And guess what, Wendy Williams got her break, when she was hired to be a media personality for Power 99FM, a Hip hop and R&B station. That’s all I’m saying.
