I love the people who write for this blog. Always on point. I really can’t stand these “reality” shows that take the dumbest people from around America and then give them a million dollars and video tape it.

(and the token white girl!) I had to reply, with that special brand of irony that educators cultivate: “Lovey, I think you’ve probably never seen rich black women before.” So I did my part to defend the Atlanta women.
