Grown Women Bully Blackish Star Marsai Martin on Twitter and The Black Community Came To Protect Her

We need to address the toxicity in our own community

Grown Women Bully Blackish Star Marsai Martin on Twitter and The Black Community Came To Protect Her

This pass weekend was the 2020 BET Awards and the awards were virtual this year. Everyone was at home and were watching and tweeting about the show. Marsai Martin was a presenter and was announcing the show from her home. Grown black women on twitter commented on her blonde wig and speculated that she had veners instead of her real teeth. Marsai made two responses, one on Twitter and another on Instagram. Her clap back was classy and she made a point to highlight that we have more important things to be worried about in 2020.

She did not have to respond but she did because no one should have to endure such hate from grown adults. In a time where we should protecting and uplifting these black queens, we shouldn't be commenting on a 16 year old's hair and teeth. The black community has been guilt of imposing our own deep self hatred on themselves to other people. From black women's natural hair to toxic masculinity, black men and women act in a toxic manner about it. These women who have let the sexualization of young girls and the toxicity of judging people, not caring about what that person is going through, wrap their thinking are trying to put that onto this young woman.

This girl has accomplished so much before the age of sixteen than any of these women have. I commend her parents for raising her knowing to never let the words of people tear you down. I also commend Black Twitter for clapping back and dragging these women for bullying this young girl. Seeing people come to this girls defense shows that they see the problem we have in out own community and we need to do better. We need to protect our young ones from the self hatred people try to put on them.

We need to always uplift and protect our young black queens. They are our future and they need to know that we got them. Never let keyboard bullies make you think less of yourself. You are more than a tweet.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.

The last few years of my life have been a rollercoaster. At this time three years ago, I received my first of many diagnoses: Crohn's disease. Then, not too long after that, I was told I had hypertension due to a condition I have called kidney dysplasia. Around February of the next year, I found out that I had developed Lupus as a result of the medicine I was on to treat my Crohn's disease.
