That BLACKNESS … in Nina’s own words

Hence why I shall never encourage anyone to financially support the upcoming Nina movie. Many who personally knew or were fans of Nina Simone would collectively agree that Nina would be deeply insulted and outraged by the way Hollywood is trying to portray her.

The best part about this interview is when she admits her own lack of control.

If you’re telling a non-black person about something racist that happened to you, make sure you are not bitter. Don’t complain. Be forgiving. If possible, make it funny. Most of all, do not be angry. Black people are not supposed to be angry about racism. Otherwise you get no sympathy. This applies only for white liberals, by the way. Don’t even bother telling a white conservative about anything racist that happened to you. Because the conservative will tell you that YOU are the real racist and your mouth will hang open in confusion.
