“You Don’t Embrace Your Black Side!’

I just so happened to be watching an episode of the Wendy Williams show (I’ve loved her since she was on the air in Philly) and she had Tahj Mowry (Tia and Tamera’s younger brother) as a guest.  Wendy began discussing the issue of his sister being openly ridiculed and verbally attacked for marrying and having a baby with a white man.  Tahj began sharing stories about how his followers on social media reach out to him saying things like “you don’t have any black friends” if he happens to post a photo with only white people.  They even say things like “you don’t embrace your black side” and it shocks him.  He and his sisters are bi-racial, with a black mother and white father.

I can’t express how disgusted I am that things like this still occur.  Growing up as a mixed kid, I feel his pain.  I was never black enough and I was never Puerto Rican enough…I mean, what is “being black enough”?  Are there certain stereotypical things that I should be doing or is there a certain way that I need to speak in order to be considered black?  CRAZINESS!  It’s so sad that any one person can be placed in a box or expected to “act” a certain way simply because others THINK they should (a total sign of insecurity and ignorance).  If only the world minded their business, lived their own lives and stopped caring about stupid shit, the world MIGHT be a more enjoyable place to live.

While I share dreams and journeys of people who are working hard on their passions, there is also an adverse side that can often times be ugly.  The entertainment industry is full of scandal, lies and simply hard roads and this is a reality that anyone wishing to become apart of it, must realize.

Since TLC aired their “true story” on VH1, a storm has come about and the world was able to witness the ugly side of the business.  While viewers and TLC fans have been slamming Pebbles with hateful slurs and accusations, she is fighting back to protect her image.  Of course, there are two sides to every story and Pebbles will be sharing her side in an upcoming book.  She sat down for an exclusive interview with Wendy Williams to set the record straight.  Check it out and let us know your thoughts:
