Defending Drake and We Black People Ain’t Always Cool

I wrote about Drake and Black People Cool on Medium.

Just because we wear the latest fashions, coin the latest slang or create the newest dances doesn’t mean we have to be “cool” all the time. Black people, let’s embrace our authentic selves whether that is awkward, nerdy, geeky or shy. Also, black people are NOT a monolith. That should be a mantra for every journalist who writes about black people and brings their outdated assumptions into their writing.
