When Role Models People Disappoint

What happens when the culture you try so hard to blend in to throws you a curveball with something like this. One one had, they have a high-end wedding and nary a face of color in the audience…perfect! But then…a dance number? To Chris Brown? Nevermind the fact that a couple actively chose as their wedding song something written by a woman-beater. But the ceremony was well on its way to being as white as her dress. Now it will forever be soundtracked by light soul runs and autotuning. 

I’m so returning my gift.
