Black Twitter is calling a spade a spade. In an effort to unify Black women around the senseless death of Breonna Taylor, women are posting photos of themselves on social media with captions that read “We are BLACK WOMEN!!…We too have a VOICE…We don’t tear down other BLACK WOMEN!!!” and Black Twitter went AWF on two women who have become millionaires from degrading Black women on their highly rated TV shows.
Mona Scott-Young is the creator of the VH1 Love and Hip franchise and Shaunie O’Neal, former wife of basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal, created Basketball Wives, which also airs on the same network.
Black women successfully got “Sorority Sisters” off the VH1 network after a coordinated social media campaign, spearheaded by fraternity and sorority members of the various greek organizations.
If O’Neal and Scott-Young are in fact bold enough to proclaim they don’t tear down other Black women, will they be bold enough to stop the exploitation of Black women for money?
The jokes write themselves.
