Pharrell’s “New Black”

pharrell3030Pharrell Williams “The New Black doesn’t blame other races for our issues,” said Pharrell, one of the world’s most successful musicians, to Oprah, billionaire queen of the world. “The New Black dreams and realises that it’s not pigmentation: it’s a mentality and it’s either going to work for you or it’s going to work against you. And you’ve got to pick the side you’re going to be on.”

“This is the new black. Oprah Winfrey: That’s the new black. She’s a black billionaire. President Obama: He is a black American president. Regardless of what you think about him, this is his second term. That’s the new black. LeBron James: the first black man ever shot on a Vogue cover, a black man. Me: a guy that’s written a song at 40! Nominated for an Oscar, four GRAMMY awards — at 40! That’s the new black!”

Charles Barkley Talks Race

 

CharlesBarkleyLots of folks hatin’ on Charles Barkley. GOOD!! That means he hit home and people are hearing his message. Hating him is subjective and emotional, how about countering his points in productive discussion? Kenny Smith provided a very eloquent counter that many are siding with (against Barkley?), but Mr Smith basically agreed with Charles sans the use of the word “scumbags.” Sir Charles got the conversation started so lets talk and not just be mad and engage in name calling. If you cannot articulate what you feel (not how you feel) you will never be heard.
