It’s no surprise that African-Americans are heavily scrutinized for embracing our culture. With that being said, it’s one thing to be scrutinized by other ethnicities, especially those who has not walked in our shoes. But what happens when it’s your own black sister doing the “bashing” of the culture?

Not too long ago, the black community unleashed a heavy wrath on Stacey Dash for her comments on Black History Month, saying that it should not be in place. And then she said, “Either we want to have segregation or integration…” Well, it seems the apple doesn’t fall short from the BET tree.

Stacey has now passed the torch of ignorance to Wendy Williams who gave her “insight” on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and Jesse Williams’ acceptance speech at the 2016 BET Awards. Here’s a list of 5 things that makes Wendy Williams similar to the ignorance that Stacey Dash possesses as well.

1Coin Over Culture

Wendy and Stacey has both made the conscious decision to choose the money of the world over the history of the culture. They have realized that, although they are black themselves, if they remain “neutral” in racial situations and don’t lean towards their own race better opportunities will come to them. FAIL. Any sane person that understands the power of the black man or woman in America and appreciates the history of the civil rights movement would know there is no figurative amount of money that would convince one to disown their own race.
