We hates us some poor people. First, they insist on being poor when it is so easy to not be poor. They do things like buy expensive designer belts and $2500 luxury handbags.
I totally get that it’s horrible and illegal to profile people. But still #SMFH over a not-filthy-rich person spending $2,500 on a handbag.â Errol Louis (@errollouis) October 29, 2013
To be fair, this isn’t about Errol Louis. His is a belief held by many people, including lots of black people, poor people, formerly poor people, etc. It is, I suspect, an honest expression of incredulity. If you are poor, why do you spend money on useless status symbols like handbags and belts and clothes and shoes and televisions and cars?One thing I’ve learned is that one person’s illogical belief is another person’s survival skill. And nothing is more logical than trying to survive.

This is hilarious.
I was firmly planted in London. It was the camera that lured me back to Ceylon, virtually bringing me back from a self-imposed exile. It brought me, an anglicized Roman Catholic, closer to the land of my birth and its people, and gave me a sense of identity. For this I am thankful.

The idea of a technologically advanced, prosperous and powerful African nation is just too much! Space Gods, though? HELL TO THE FUCKIN’ YEAH.
They need to just say “sorry, too black” and be honest for once.
Just admit you can’t do it. White dudes need to know their limitations. But don’t worry there are plenty of black people out there that can create this world. Bye.
It’s the fact that on Earth, Wakanda is the most technologically advanced civilization including in the fields of medicine and militarized weaponry.
And remember when the UN was trying to convince Wakanda to share its weaponry with them and they told them no? Yeah.
It’s soooo hard imagining Africans as anything other than NGeo picture fodder and emotional guilt-trip props for rich white people, right?
Why don’t you go find yourself in Denmark or some shit? Go find yourself in London and France and Germany
Talk about how exotic the white folks there are
with their precious healthcare and public transport
