You’re welcome. It’s a ridiculous thing to tie to men of color. White people can speak terribly and become President (i.e. Trump and George Bush) — but a Black person trying to achieve anything needs to speak well in order to appease White spaces. It’s hypocrisy! I watch and I see over and over again White people label Black men as articulate. It’s covert racism and it’s time we show the world its double standards.
