Fix It Jesus: Steve Harvey Under Fire For "I Don't Give A Damn About Slavery" Comment!
Steve Harvey is a comedian so how do you, the reader interpret the below video to mean? Some people are saying that it means more than it does, but it might also say that Harvey is promoting ignorance. He seems to be saying in the video that if you don’t understand something, you should avoid the conversation and walk away. In other words, be comfortable in your ignorance and pretend that it’s not there.
The biggest shocker is that Steve says that he doesn’t “give a damn about slavery.” Does that mean that none of us should give a damn about our ancestors who were beaten, raped, castrated, lynched, burned alive and had their families torn apart? Maybe ignorance isn’t the answer for black people. It might be something else. The craziest thing about Steve’s effort for comic relief is that this happens to be Black History Month. Is there nothing that black people are expected to do in order to make money?
