Singer Kelis took to Twitter just minutes ago to air out her thoughts on being called a slave at a UK airport. Kelis was at a UK airport with her son when a complete stranger called her a ‘slave‘ and ’disgusting Nigerian‘.
Over 50 people said nothing. I mean literally nothing. Didn’t flinch. We all no 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. Suposed to be anyway. It made me think. This person was aprox a 50 year old English man.
She went on to explain:
I didn’t say anything at the time of the riots in London for a lot of reasons. But I am in london all the time and today I’m gonna say that the racial issues in the uk are disgusting. Decades behind progression because everything is swept under the rug. People don’t talk about it. People don’t fight about it.
