I’m not your mammy

20141207_080337This lady, emailed me this picture that her client insisted was her.  She went in to work that day, and her elderly client said to her, “Why didn’t you tell me you were famous, why didn’t you tell me that you were in the paper?!”  The
African woman said back, “what are you talking about?”  The client then goes to bring out the paper/magazine from here, and says “see, this is you!  You didn’t tell me”  The African woman says back to her, “that is not me Mrs. Smith”, the client insists that it is her, and says “are you saying that I’m lying?”  The African-Nova Scotian woman just said she just gave up…but when speaking with me, she said,  “there are so many other African people in magazines, she didn’t think I was Oprah or Beyonce. Why a woman that could pass for a slave?”
