I’m going to keep this real short, because I don’t want to risk giving this odd attempt at a joke any sort of legitimacy. This meme like many meme’s was created a while back but you may have noticed it hitting your time lines because it has resurfaced recently and causing quite a stir. Unlike the Kermit ones, alot of us do not find it very funny and see it as a lame attempt at taking shots.
On one blog the writer made the point that any time anybody buys anything from anyone you could be potentially sending their kids to college so why the ‘attack’ on the black woman and where she chooses to spend her money.
We wont make this a Korean versus Black thing, because frankly nobody wants to see that, but we are so tired of everybody watching our pockets and what we like to do with our hair.
If you open a business, the first thing you ask for is support, you want people to purchase your products, that is what the economy is built on. The great thing about the American economy is that other people from other countries who probably would not have the same opportunities can come here and live the American dream.
They can even send a child or two to college so they can also have even better opportunities, making our economy better as generations pass. We know that immigrants appreciate what they create on foreign soil so this meme is probably not worth a second look.
But I will say this, while we would like to see more beauty supply stores being black owned, and don’t worry we are working on it, we all know that you should never bite the hand that
saved feeds you…sips kermit tea.
What do you guys think of this meme? funny in an SMH kinda way, right?
