“Black people don’t do that!”
This examination will be short, mainly because we have all been down this path. We have crossed this street and addressed these issues in our own minds time and time before. What is Black? Who are we to judge Black? What does Black do? What does Black not do?
This question is firmly rooted in Black fashion. Scroll through this blog, any blog. Black fashion… is everything, does everything.
Unequivocally, a must read for anyone who wants to remain relevant in a world of constant refinement.
Toure has been classified as everything under the sun, and then some. The critical analysis of his life has brought him to the crossroads of Blackness Vs Blackness. Toure has crafted an exceptional piece depicting the ever changing concept of Blackness.
Toure’s position is an interesting one, he challenges the restrictions that the “Black” identity creates. He ever goes so far to challenge the restrictions we Blacks put on each other. We’ve all heard it… “Black people don’t do that”. Case in point, yes, we do.
This spirited often humorous book critiques the 21st century Black and spins it into an understandable amalgamation of past present and future. Read it with an open mind, and a reflective spirit. You wont regret it.
The rules of Blackness no longer exist.
