#TellUsHowYouReallyFeel…Are Black Women and White Women Unequal?
Written by on 1 November 2013
Omarosa‘s vistit to Bethenny Frankel‘s show this week has caused many round table discussion on whether or not black women and white women are truly on the same playing field.
During her conversation with Bethenny, Omarosa made the following statement: “It’s different for you and I, and I’m an African American woman. You get to walk around being mediocre, and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business.” The crowd, full of white women, took offense to the statement and booed the reality star. However, Omarosa remained steadfast in her opinion. “I think it’s important to understand that you don’t stay a decade on television, on reality TV, without being smart and creating a brand that people want to see. If the audience didn’t want to see Omarosa, they would never book me again. You booked me to be on your show today. There’s a brand there. There’s a commodity…”
Here’s the portion of the video that sparked the comment:
