So Let’s Talk About Luvvie, Cynthia Erivo & Yvonne Orji
In case you’ve been living under a rock The Breaking Brown family (Yvette Carnell) & others have been taking Luvvie to task. So much so that petitions have flown around involving Luvvie and her girl Cynthia (who has been casted to play Harriet Tubman). The issue at stake is the problematic views that Luvvie has involving American Descendants of Slaves & how immigrants come to America to compete with American born blacks but aren’t locked into what it means to be American DOS. In fact, many Nigerians come here already having more wealth than that of American born Descendants of slaves & that’s for many different reasons, but this goes back to the institution of slavery. They are what’s known as the African elite that sold their own into slavery. (We will go into detail at a later date involving the slave trade & African involvement).
The screenshots below will show you what Luvvie really thinks about American DOS as a whole.
Let’s move onto Yvonne Orji…
The pattern that we’re all seeing is the fact that many Nigerians carry this air of austerity & let’s be clear we’re not saying ALL West Africans or even Nigerians behave this way. We’re talking about those like the aforementioned that migrate here & do not want to be in solidarity with black Americans, but instead only want to get over on “skin tone” out of a matter of convenience when filling out job applications, but are quick to do writing competitions to talk about how African-Americans do not deserve reparations. (*cough* Luvvie), but I digress…. Let’s let Yvette Carnell break everything down now on Yvonne Orji.
