Sadly, being a Black woman isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. According to Tiny’s best friend and hairstylist, Shekinah, “White people never have drama. Black girls always going through some sh*t.”
“If I was White, I’d probably be married by now,” Shekinah laments as if it’s her skin color that’s keeping her from having a ring on it. “I’d have good hair. My eyes would be green,” she continues.
Tiny hit it right on the head when she said, “You’re sounding crazy right now,” but that didn’t stop her from helping her best friend on her “White Adventure.” Shekinah created a list of “White girl activities” that would help her live her drama-free and White life. SMH. This was a sneak peek of what we can look forward to on the next episode of “T.I. And Tiny.”
I agree with Clutch’s perception of the deeper issue of mental slavery. Shekinah is perpetuating the sad stereotype that many Blacks have against themselves. She thinks that White people have no drama, their hair is better and their lives are much simpler because they sip tea and do yoga. Black people do all these things too, but, “in Shekinah’s world, white is inherently more sophisticated and pulled-together, and black is unstable, unrefined and full of drama.”
