Yeah…it’s in quotes for a reason.
While Solange is out her buying books for Howard Students, India.Arie is launching a clothing line to benefit Black Lives Matter, and Jill Scott is getting poetic with Mahogany…Chrisette Michele is still out here trying to justify why she sang at one of Donald Trump’s Inaugural balls.
And when you keep justifying, you’re losing the argument.
While the singer made some good points about listening to others and learning about the experiences other than your own, part of the issue is how she thinks of herself and the platform that she has. The section about the Women’s March the day after (starting at 12:33) illustrates that point to a tee.
Take a listen for yourself, though; she may convince you she knew what she was doing.
