Heh. That’s very kind considering what I usually hear from Ethiopians and Somalis about West Africans and American Blacks.
IMAN: "...it becomes what it was like during slavery," she said. "One had the field ni**er and the house ni**er. There was this notion that I was chosen by White fashion editors to be better than the rest, which I am not," she added. "I did not like being thought of as the house ni**er."
Here's what I don't get: Iman is from Somalia, so what the hell business does she have using American slave terminology? The woman was never a slave, and she is not an American. In fact, this woman has been living a privileged life far beyond the aspirations of most white people in the US, and all based on the fact that she was born pretty, and yet she's dragging out old US slave terms to act as if she is some kind of oppressed person? Bah. The civil rights movement, somewhere along the way, became an evil excuse to hate whitey, and now you don't even have to be a descendant of slaves to claim victimhood and hate whitey too! Whoopee!
