I know you ..Why don't you know me?
We were talking about American culture and I came to realize that I knew damn near everything about "White Culture"; but he knew hardly anything about "Black Culture". (This was a White dude by the way..).
Why is this? Why do I know who Jennifer Anniston and Mila Kunich is but you have no idea who Megan Goode is? Or Gabrielle Union?
Why do I know who Def Leopard, AC/DC, Poison , Tim Mcgraw is; but you don't know Earth Wind and Fire, Confuction, or Anthony Hamilton?
Why do I know about Modern Family, Friends, Frazier; and you have no idea about Girlfriends, The Jamie Foxx Show, or the BoonDocks?
How do I know who Kathy Griffin is; and you don't know who Simore is?
How do I know about Gucci and Tommy Hilfiger; and you don't know Phat Farm, or Rocca Wear?
This is that bullshit son.
How is it I can talk to a White person about anything that interests them; and they have no clue what interests me?
We do live in the same country right?
Our needs interests and likes are of no concern to them as long as they continue to be our needs, interests and likes.
We have to know about them in order to survive in this "post racial" country of ours...but them?
And this is the greatest place on the face of the Planet?
