Sometimes I feel like that, but after years working in government, the nonprofit sector, and in politics, I’ve learned sometimes rooting for all Black people isn’t good. By doing so, we get Bill Cosbys, R. Kellys, Omarossas, Shaun Kings, Eddie Longs and other Blacks who do us harm.

There is no perfect person of course, but giving out blanket Black passes for all things Black people is bad for us sometimes. For entertainment, well that’s is one thing (understanding the context and White Supremacist systems), but for real life, it’s a terrible practice. Sometimes, the lines get blurred.
