Apparently she has , "12 counts of felony theft, perjury, fraud and misconduct in office, becoming the city's first sitting mayor to be criminally indicted." AND "she also is accused of using as much as $3,400 in gift cards, some donated to her office for distribution to "needy families," to purchase Best Buy electronics and other items for herself and her staff."
It is disappointing to read news about black politicians doing or being accused of wrongdoing.
Kwame Kilpatrick, Ronald Burris were caught up in some mess, Jesse Jackson off handed comments about OBAMA, BILL RICHARDSON(Hispanic/Latino) fake investigation that interfered with his Obama appointment, etc.
What confuses me, is that these GROWN people, who grew up in a time that was way more unwelcoming to their rise to power, become LAX. As if they have forgotten about the BLACK TAX.
BLACK TAX is defined by Urban Dictionary as "The notion that Black people have to work and perform regular task twice as well as White people."
There are just certain realities when it comes down to being a non white person in America. The BLACK TAX is real. It aint going anywhere. Buppie Must do: always follow this rule.
The rule will not always GET you where you want to be, but it will help justify why you are where you are just in case it becomes questionable. I do not know if this is the proper way to think, but I do nonetheless, I think that I am always competing. Everything I do is susceptible to the "Black tax".
Can you relate to the Black Tax? Or am I just tripping?
