Atlanta Real Housewife NeNe leakes says “white is right”…yes this is 2012

If you are over the age of 30 you might have heard the following statement “white is right, if you are brown stick around and if you are black get back”. In 2009 Rev. James Lowrey said this at the Obama inauguration, but he is 90 years old. It’s something that was often said back in the day, but seldom uttered in this century. That’s why it was surprising to hear NeNe Leakes say “white is right” tonight. She said this because she is currently dating a white guy, but the irony of this episode is her black son had just been released from jail and her soon to be ex black husband was trying to impart some wisdom and motivate the son. She even complimented her soon to be ex in a sideline interview, but she had no problem repeating the aged refrain. It’s 2012 and we are still repeating the sad statements made by our oppressed ancestors. It’s time to wake up.

    Utterly ridiculous! SMH! The mindset of some is saddening.

    Thank you for this article. I couldn’t believe I heard Nene say that! I was hoping that people would be a lot more outraged. Where is the outrage?!

    I agree this is something that is going around on the black reality shows because it was uttered a few times on Basketball Wives LA as well (Laura Govan). It is sad that grown women who claim to be proud of who they are would even think to utter such nonsense! Self hatred at it’s best! Why can’t they get any REAL Black people on these reality shows? They are always the ‘yessuh massah’ or very belligerent messy types!

    Where is the outrage? Not much because NeNe is an idiot and who cares what she says.
