My boy Ray-Ray works in HR, so hit me up if you plan to attend!
On the way home, the only thing on my mind was “nappy headed hoes” & how fucked up that sounds but don’t be mad at me because the more I thought about it I started to laugh inside & just how ridiculous this phrase is. I am in no way downplaying the media firestorm over the
stringy headed media hoe Imus situation but merely focusing on how sometimes language takes me there.
In the words of Nikki Giovanni:
“English isn’t a good language to express emotion through
mostly I imagine because people try to speak English
instead of trying to speak through it…”
