Questlove Said It…


I understand. It may be as simple as walking into a local department store and being stared at from the moment you walk in or entering a classy restaurant and being looked upon like “are you sure you’re in the right place or can afford this,” in either case, it’s a sense of discomfort regardless of how much I try to convince myself that it really doesn’t matter. I have nothing to prove to anyone and it’s not about walking with a chip on my shoulder because I make a healthy salary or served 22 years in the military. It has nothing do with that. It’s knowing who I am, what I am capable of and yet no matter my successes, it’s always a less than expectation because..

…I’m constantly reminded

…and it eats at me as well.

Read this carefully as if reading in between the lines, for there is something deeply wrong in our American society and Questlove said it…
