Manipulative Restatement of the Day

"If only I wasn't Black. Then people would stop sweating me for contributing to the cultural erosion of the Black community, the further objectification of Black women, and increased demonization of young Black men while I'm lining my pockets. It's SO unfair!"

- my shamelessly manipulative paraphrasing of a lament from BET founder Robert Johnson over the difficulties he faces in his career, from an article found in today's L.A. Times.
