R. Kelly and the Cost of Black Protectionism - The Atlantic
While Surviving convincingly argues that Kelly’s celebrity was a significant driving force in helping him establish a protected, predatory pattern, the docuseries picks at an uncomfortable truth that has long existed in the African American community. Black girls and women are often on their own in fighting abuse and misogynoir.

The African American community has struggled to deal with the abuse of black girls and women because addressing this widespread problem ultimately means singling out black men, which many are hesitant to do because they don’t want to become another vehicle that contributes to their destruction.

But a community conditioning itself to accept abuse out of racial solidarity is not only unacceptable, it’s also further jeopardizing the safety and well-being of black women and girls.

'Asian Bae' Of 'Insecure' Explains Why His Role Is Groundbreaking For Asian Guys | HuffPost
“I was ashamed of being Chinese as a kid, and would revel anytime I was confused for Polynesian, Hawaiian or Maori, because these other ethnicities had an exotic attraction and appeal that my [being] Chinese didn’t carry in a white society ― the irony being each of those ethnicities were at one time influenced by Chinese.”

5 black women talk being underpaid and how they asked for more
Were you paid fairly for the work you were doing at that time? If not, how did you find out you were underpaid?

[Leslie Mac): At the time, I thought it was a really good salary and I was excited about it. But looking back, I was underpaid and doing so many other job functions in my corporate training role. And so you know, when I think back on that time, I often think about the work we do as black women to make our communities better, to make our families better, to make our congregations better, to make whatever organization we are connected to, including the workplace, better. There is so much work that we do that is never compensated.

I would highlight that you have to get really specific about what you're asked to do, and make concerted decisions when you decide to go above and beyond. That shouldn't be the norm, and I think a lot of times we make that the norm and ultimately it devalues the hours we spend doing work because it's on stuff we're not being paid for.

Reductress » Woops! This Black Woman Mentioned Edge Control and Now Her White Friends Think She’s Into Freaky Sex
“Edge control is literally just a product you use to keep those little frizzy hairs at your hairline in check,” she said. “These are women who use slang terms like ‘that just snatched my wig’ and ‘my edges are gone’, so I assumed they would know what I was referring to. But I guess they just adopt cool aspects of blackness without having any other kind of working knowledge about them.”
