I like Bloomberg as my Commencement Speaker- QBW

So I’m black, yet I like Bloomberg.

What should I do?

Should I admit I’ve made mistakes before?

Should I remind you I’ve liked successful, rich people my whole life?

What should I do?

Should I not admit I’ve felt safer in my neighborhood because of Stop ‘N’ Frisk?

And that I’ve never been stopped, even when carrying illicit items on my person?

Or that yes, maybe my penchant for Anglo-Saxon brands, mannerisms, and career paths makes me less threatening in the eyes of the law?

Maybe I should be angry, and stand with the activists

Or maybe I should be upfront with the fact I’ve always felt a tad out of place with that camp too…

Maybe I should accept my role as the villain

I have always wanted to wear Prada

 

Q.B.W.
