Sonya Eskridge is a writer from Maryland, who started her news career in radio at the age of 17. After graduating from Virginia Tech, she went on to write for a national publication where she was able to mold her personal voice. Always looking for ways to inform on important issues--or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
Black Twitter let some of these “New Black” celebrities have it for being blissfully oblivious about racial issues.
There have been quite a few moments over the last few moments where Black stars have been dissociating themselves from the reality that racism still exists. This could be because some of them don’t recognize that they are Black Americans.
Instead going up on a Tuesday, Black Twitter users went in with the hilarious #BlackCelebsBeLike hashtag, and no one was safe!
They came for Raven-Symone.
#BlackCelebsBeLike 'I'm not black I'm colorless/*insert 9 ethnicities here*' but I only take roles that call for black/AA women!
