Singer Kelis took to her Twitter to discuss a horrible situation that happened to her at an airport in the UK. A man walked by her and called her a “slave” and a “disgusting Nigerian.” She tweeted,
A red faced sweaty “man” (I use the word loosely here) started calling me a slave and told me to call him sir…
He called me Kunta Kinte and ranted and raved some more. The man behind the passport desk laughed, shook his (head).”
She said 50 people were around and not one of them said anything.
Didn’t flinch. We all know I’m no saint, so I retaliated. Not the way I wanted to, or how that pig deserved. But #1 my gorgeous baby boy was literally sitting on my hip and #2 I’m a believer. And we are better. Supposed to be anyway. It made me think. This person was approximately a 50 year old English man.”
Kelis is in London a lot and she expressed her disgust with the racial issues there.
Decades behind progression because everything is swept under the rug. People don’t talk about it. People don’t fight it.”
Smh… all of those people who said nothing should be ashamed of themselves. Why is there so much hate in the world?? Good for her standing up for herself!!
