There is a secret list of black folk you cannot talk slick about for fear of sounding like Don Lemon. This list is on some dead sea scroll somewhere and is passed around at various negro social settings. I don’t know its entire contents but I do know that Patti LaBelle, Super-sized Luther, President Obama, White Jesus and Jill Scott are on it. Now before ya’ll come after me for breaking bad, let me just say I love Jill but right now I wish she would just stick to writing dope songs and nix the social commentary on Bill Cosby. Jill appeared on The Breakfast Club to promote her new album and explain why she can no longer support
Pilly Billy! She said the comedian was like a hometown father, so she didn’t want to initially jump on the bandwagon with his accusers and tear down his legacy. Now she feels differently. She brought up previous accusations against Michael Jackson, Allen “Practice” Iverson and Kevin Clash (the dude who had his hand up Elmo’s ass for decades). She then added that ALL men have “proclivities” and THIS my friends is where she lost me.
