Bravo’s, Blood, Sweat & Heels is one of my reality show vices, on the latest episode of Broads with Egos, thinking their way more important then they are. One of the “stars” is arrested for failure to pay (or something like that) honestly I wouldn’t blog about this show if it hadn’t been for the comment that the woman made in her confessional.
She was flabbergasted that the cabby had the audacity to try to kick her out of his cab after a disagreement over where it was she needed to go. These were her words, “he treated me like I was some ghetto girl, like I don’t have a degree”, this is where my problem lies.
If indeed the cabby verbally assaulted her and tried to physically remove her from his taxi, he was dead ass wrong, point, blank, period! But her mindset as to why he was wrong for doing it to her is what bothers me, he had no right to talk to her in that way because “she’s a college graduate with degrees and a Prada purse”. Say word?
NO ONE deserves to be verbally or physically assaulted no matter what your educational background! I don’t care if the woman was the stereotypical gum popping, neck rolling “sistah” from Marcy Projects, no one deserves to be treated like their less than human.
I’ve found more and more that some black women with degrees have this elitist attitude that they now belong to a secret society of degree holding super heroes, that can’t be touched and the normal rules of society no longer are applied to them because they sat in a classroom and read some books and regurgitated the shit back to the professor, get the fuck outta here with that.
You’re probably thinking I’m mad at the comment because I don’t hold any degrees of higher education WRONG! I have three degrees, but who gives a shit! They don’t make me who I am and they damn sure don’t make me better than the next chick. But hey obtaining higher education doesn’t equate to having a higher regard for your fellow-man, it means now I can use this degree to make myself feel a higher level of importance and look down on others.
