Social media commentary hot takes: Dababy, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Black Girl Joy.
Big lights, small city! DaBaby is receiving strong criticism from slapping Tyronesha Laws. Tyronesha, shined her cellphone light in DaBaby’s face as he walked through the crowd after a private show. Although he has since apologized and offered to meet with the woman her face to face to discuss the matter. Lately, he has been the poster child for how to screw up a bag. Tyronesha has since retained legal representation with the law firm Morgan and Morgan. Hitting someone over something so petty will never be okay. Women are huge supporters of the rap genre, yet remain the most disrespected.
DaBaby seems to be quick to anger. He needs to speak with someone about it. Unresolved issues can and will cripple a career. Public perception is huge in his line of work. Most importantly though do the self the work and become a better person. You hire security, so let them work! Keep your hands to yourself.
Many hearts were broken at the announcement of Elizabeth Warren’s campaign suspension. Some wondered, how could the most talented woman of the presidential field not come out on top? With every idea, she produced a plan to make it happen. She centered black women and the LGBTQ community. Her progressive ideas were embraced by many. After the results of Super Tuesday started to pour in, calls for her to end her campaign grew louder. Ultimately she heeded the call. She has yet to announce who she will back on the campaign trail. Hopefully she will have the courage to break from her party and endorse the candidate whose platform best aligns with hers.
Speaking of endorsements. Kamala Harris announced her endorsement for the presidential race. She has chosen to support Joe Biden on his quest to become the 46th President of these United States of America. Some rejoiced, others not so much. For some, the endorsement is no shocker seeing how Kamala is a democrat. The endorsement did spark conversations centered on the ineffectiveness of centric democrats such as Joe Biden. And how often their platform and voting history’s mirrors that of moderate republicans. I’m just wondering how an African-American woman sees fit to align herself with a documented architect of the new Jim Crow.
The internet had has all in our feelings after witnessing 4-year old Ariyonna have her confidence restored by her hairdresser Shabria. During Ariyonna’s loc styling session, she began to cry after looking in the mirror and calling herself ugly. Shabria sprang into action and affirmed Ariyonna’s beauty and gave her a hug. The video went viral on social media. Oscar winner Matthew Cherry encouraged artist to submit work showing just how beautiful Ariyonna is. A painful story with a beautiful outcome. Tell your brown skinned children how beautiful they are. Purchase books, pictures, and, movies, etc. that help to affirm their beauty.
