Editorial: When African-Americans Become #NewBlacks

It must be nice to live in this bleak world rocking designer rose-colored sunglasses because race doesn’t seem to exist. Pharrell Williams recently defined the phenomenon of being a Black person who is able to live beyond their own skin color:

“A ‘new black’ is someone who doesn’t blame other races for our issues. The ‘new black’ dreams and realizes that it’s not a pigmentation; it’s a mentality. And it’s either going to work for you, or it’s going to work against you. And you’ve got to pick the side you’re gonna be on.”

Oh. Too bad racial profiling, structural racism and bigots don’t give a fuck if you consider yourself a “pre-owned black” or “new black.”
