Anonymous said: Rachel has been through so much, shouldn't she get sympathy. Her dreams shattered. Mercedes was given everything, never had to work for it. That is unrealistic. Lay off Rachel. She already has it hard.

Rachel doesn’t get any sympathy from me because she brought it all on herself. She did everything she could to get in Nyada, to turn around and dump it for Broadway. She got her dream role, a role we have been hearing about since season 1, and she got bored after a few weeks, and dumped it for a TV show. They in turn dumped her.

She is a 20 year old living the life in NY. It’s unrealistic because New York is crawling with talented people. They didn’t show her struggle at all. She got everything handed to her since she is a special snowflake. Also why would anyone want to do a TV show about a girl who was only doing Broadway for a couple of weeks? That’s unrealistic.

Mercedes deserved her success. She was never utilized enough in Glee Club. She never got featured in competition until the TroubleTones. Sam uploaded her video to YouTube and someone discovered her and wanted her to sing backup. That is not uncommon. Many recording artist get their start from singing backup, for example: Mariah Carey.

Then she got a chance to record her own album, but they dropped her for having morals. Then she sold her album out of the trunk of her car. It ended up on the right hands. Again this is not uncommon. Many musician got their start because their mix tape ended up in the right hands. She negotiated like the boss she is, and became a song writer, who was able to put out an album after she wrote a required number of songs.Neyo and Keri Hilson are examples of songwriters who turned recording artist.

Now she is promoting her album by doing a mall tour. Many upcoming Artist do these.

Mercedes storyline and success is because she never gave up. Her dream stayed consistent. She is on the right path to getting her Grammy.

Rachel doesn’t know what she wants. I think she just wants to be in the spotlight, not caring how she got there.

So she gets no sympathy from me!

Thank you….

Preach.

Bless you for this!

Please take a minute to generally know what’s going on in Pakistan right now.

Anthropomorphic Tree

Anthropomorphism which is the recognition of human-like characteristics or form in animals, plants or non-living things. This tree, which can be found in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, has roots which have taken a human-like form.

Style has a profound meaning to Black Americans. If we can’t drive, we will invent walks and the world will envy the dexterity of our feet. If we can’t have ham, we will boil chitterlings; if we are given rotten peaches, we will make cobblers; if given scraps, we will make quilts; take away our drums, and we will clap our hands. We prove the human spirit will prevail. We will take what we have to make what we need. We need confidence in our knowledge of who we are.

This makes me think of a beautiful post that I mentioned in one of my Read This Week features; a post by @HarrietThugman about Black people of other cultural backgrounds who diminish Black American culture, and shouldn’t….for it is so rich.

My cultural heritage involves a mixture of my love for some things specific to Jamaican culture (because of my background, being raised in a Jamaican family by Jamaican parents, but being raised in America and actually born in America) and some things specific to being an American Black (I love how Nikki says Black is the NOUN and American is the adjective), and some things that seems to connect Black people despite where in the diaspora we are.
