ABCD: Do all Black men like their women how they like their chicken?

No.

I don't even know what the hell that means, Omarion.

I like my chicken baked, curried, fried, BBQ'd - I pretty much like chicken as long as it is cooked.

ABCD: If racism is so bad, if you had the choice, would you be White?

Short answer:

No.

Long answer:

No.

I love my Blackness like I love life itself.

I need my Blackness like I need air to breathe.

I am unapologetically Black.

The reason I say this is because we, as Black people, have been taught to hate ourselves. And hate each other.

You've got Samuel L. Jackson out there throwing his Black shade on one of the most popular films of 2017. And the highest grossing film by a Black director. It's that type of shit that shows how hardwired we are to hate.

Hate not ourselves, but what Whites taught (and continue to teach) us to be.

ABCD: Can racism be "fixed"?

Depends.

Depends if (White) people want to fix it.

Depends if the dominant groups in society are willing to a) admit that the reason they are dominant is because they have oppressed darker skinned peoples and b) willing to give up said dominance.

It all depends.
