that time the new york times started a profile of shonda rhimes by saying her autobiography should be called “how to get away with being an angry black woman.”

Excuse me? !

This article is bad from beginning to end.  Also Alessandra Stanley is like the whitest white woman ever.
It reads like one of those compliments liberal white folks give intended to make POC feel good about themselves, but just all kinds of foul.  It’s like an essay-length “You speak so well!”

FORCED TO FLEE WITH HIS NAN

Charlie Fisher was met by the girls shouting “liar, liar” as he walked out of arrivals.

A cheating boyfriend got his comeuppance when he touched down in the UK following a holiday – and walked straight into his three girlfriends.

Charlie Fisher, 20, had barely set foot on English soil at Luton Airport when he heard someone shouting ‘liar, liar’ – and saw the three girls he had been seeing being each other’s backs marching towards him.

Becky Connery, 17, said she planned the (not so) welcome party after finding out her love rat boyfriend had been texting a girl behind her back.

‘He came out and froze,’ she told The Sun.

The girls found each other through text and Facebook and hatched the plan (Picture: Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham)

‘We started calling him a cheat and a liar really loudly. He didn’t have anything to say.’

After seeing the message, Becky got in touch with the 20-year-old girl – who does not want to be identified – and together, the pair found a third girl through Facebook, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham.

‘I just wanted to see his face when all three of us were in the same place,’ Lizzie, 19, told The Sun.

Becky later said that after confronting her cheating ex, he ‘ran to his nana’.

Charlie, from Hertfordshire, would invent friends and lie about family commitments in order to juggle the three girls, according to reports.

a nigga truly going out in style

If black folks are honest, many of us will admit to both internally and vocally balking at the very “free” ways that we have heard white children address their parents in public. Many a black person has seen a white child yelling at his or her parents, while the parents calmly respond, gently scold, ignore, attempt to soothe, or failing all else, look embarrassed.

I can never recount one time, ever seeing a black child yell at his or her mother in public. Never. It is almost unfathomable…

White children in general are raised to be Columbus, to “discover” the world anew and then to manipulate and order the universe to their own liking. If we take away the colonizing impulse in living this way, I think it would be amazing to have the luxury of raising black children who also view the world as a space of their own making, a space to be explored, a space to build anew. A space where occasionally, simply because you live there, you can opt to walk in the middle of the street instead of being confined to the sidewalk, much as you might sling your leg across the arm of a chair in your own home, because it is home.

But for so many black children, these kinds of frivolous choices will get you killed or locked up. For black children, finding disciplinary methods that instill a healthy sense of fear in a world that is exceptionally violent toward them is a hard balance to find.

The thing is, though: Beating, whupping or spanking your children will not protect them from state violence. It won’t keep them out of prison. Ruling homes and children with an iron fist will not restore the dignity and respect that the outside world fails to confer on adult black people.
