giuliana rancic…lower cased intentially

24 Feb

Giuliana Rancic made a comment about dreadlocks smelling like oil and weed. For those of you who don’t know her she is a voice in the fashion world. That’s it. Because of that platform, they gave her a microphone at the Oscars. My problem is this,  just because you have your ear to the street of fashion on the national stage does not mean you are an expert on race and culture. What’s worse is that you have never spent a day in the shoes of the black woman that you offended, Zendaya. In short, if you are culturally insensitive you run the risk of looking shallow with nothing substantive to say. Let’s elevate our thinking by thinking before we speak!

    I agree. Let me ask you this.. I saw these specific comments being mentioned on my timeline during the time Giuliana’s comments surfaced. If Joan said the same thing, would it have been received the same because of her comedic background?

      Joan gets a pass. Why? Because she would make fun of herself and those like her without bias. Giuliana speaks to a certain segment of the community that most people cannot relate to. That being said she has since back pedaled on her remarks and has apologized. We’ll assume she was sincere if she doesn’t make the same mistake a second time.
