Don’t get the hate

Maybe I need to re-listen to this story to see what other POC are upset about bec I’m not. I find it funny and I’m keeping with the story just fine.

Upon my second listen through, I’ll write another review if I catch the same issues.

Ronda!Ronda!Ronda!? ,

Modern BlackXploitation

Her speaking patterns mimic racist mammy films from the 1950’s. AAVE doesn’t sound like that, she talks like uncle Ruckus from the Boondocks. It’s like all those racist films that came out in the 1970’s, just give her a Cadillac and pistol to pull out of her Afro puffs. I get it because for hundreds of years Black stereotypes have been an entertainment source. It’s more American than the flag and apple pie at this point. If you can’t think of nothing funny just combine as many Black stereotypes as you can together and people will love it!
