Let’s talk about this Tamar getting fire on “The Real” thing and the hypocrisy
of some of the black people who are glad that Tamar got fired because she was “ghetto” and “loud” and I understand you all opinions, BUT let’s get to the ‘The Three Bears’ story on this. You guys want people to view black women not at the stereotype that Tamar present, but now you all are saying that Tamera is boring because she has a different gentle sweet life style? It’s like the “It’s too hot” “It’s too cold” situation.
If we are loud or “ghetto” we need to bring it down and we are too much?
If we are seen as sweet and gentle we are boring?
Black women always have to change because of what everyone of us should do, wear out hair and act like we a s Sim character and change to their liking. WE do not work like that.
