Russel Westbrook shocked the Black internet when he recently posted a Instagram pic wearing a dress.
Lets just start out by saying that Russel and all of these other Black male athletes and media personalities putting on a dress is just downright weird.
If not for previous stories from the likes of my grandparents, stories of how whites would only feel comfortable around Black waiters if they were in a dress or acted extremely feminine, I would question why so many Black entertainers are so eager to emasculate themselves.
So seeing all of these white paid, white promoted brothas being willing to tap dance shouldn’t be a surprise to any of us, the bigger question should be “Why do we even mention them?”
Its’ a reasonable question.
Why do we even provide nobodies who bottomed out in the playoffs like Russel Westbrook or no-talent singers like Lil Nas X coverage? Sure, we understand that the white-media will give a floor to examples of weak Black males but why do we?
Lets be honest, the Black community as a whole drives the social discourse of America and even the world, so us ignoring the attention whores promoted by white supremacy solves 50% of our problem. By us ignoring them, we make them out to be what they are, walking freak-shows with no community to call their own.
Plus we need to be focused on making our own music videos and sports leagues run by Black men that won’t have or encourage brothas to be walking around with mini skirts, because that weak as hell.
Remember guys, attention whores are only as important as you want them to be.
