If another person acted like this, we may not have laughed so hard
If Danielle was Different
Buzz B of DatWav wrote, “If she was Mexican, would this country tell her to go back to Mexico and assume she was illegal? If she was Middle Eastern, would the rest of the country attack her because of her Muslim religion and compare her to a terrorist (since she isn’t afraid to cause terror)? If she was a lesbian, would the women in this country tell her how to act like a real woman?”
Then he relates her behavior to the black community, “If she was black, the mother would be famous, not the rude teen. This country would have called her parenting into question extremely fast. There is no way she would’ve been let off the hook like Danielle’s mother.”
Buzz B continued, “If Danielle was black, it wouldn’t have received the same attention because most of America thinks every black person is ‘ghetto’ anyway. The appeal of the unusual would be gone. Instead, humor is found in Danielle’s case. She becomes a joke and the whole country is running around promoting the joke. Everybody is laughing at how funny it is. It’s funny because she’s white and is ‘acting black?'”
Not So Funny
We don’t know how long Danielle’s fame for acting absurdly will last, but she isn’t going away immediately, no matter how offensive her behavior is. Buzz B concluded his strongly-worded article saying, “Being black isn’t easy or funny. Apparently, being white and acting black is though.” The “plot twist” to the article is that he’s a white guy.
