Wait...it’s attached to their house?! She gets a lot of flack on IG for her questionable soul food . I didn’t realize the restaurant was connected to their home though. Interesting...I want to know more about that Country Cookin' restaurant attached to their house
I wish the steps & the ground were clean and dry, or I wish a red carpet had been put down, before the train from her dress dragged on it.Look so that's my question..
When she walked out of the door down those three dirty steps that's the front door to her house???? It's like almost in the street...
I don't understand..
Yeah it looks like she started a fundraiser to help kids get hair/nails/suits/dresses. While I think it’s quite frivolous, everyone deserves to feel special at least once in their live. An escape from the inner city.Ok. So I didn't realize this was the same lady. I started following her on after some cooking thing she posted was shared.
Anyway, I don't be counting folks money, but she was just talking about things being donated to her after she had surgery a few weeks ago. I think her daughter had a prom before this one and the hair, dress, makeup etc were donated.
Looking at her IG, the tag leads me to believe she's doing this for different kids in the neighborhood.
I think every child should have a nice prom and anyone can have a nice prom for under 1K, including limo. Spending 30K and up on a prom is not a good use of money. 30K is like half a downpayment on certain properties in Philly...it's a year of tuition at certain schools...It's great the businesses are donating, but 5K for just one child to go to a prom is excessive to me.
If this is the same diamante financing I came across a year ago, the mom could be financing some of this.It seems like she works with a lot of local businesses to put on these events.
Is that 'Martin' in the photo looking crossed-eyed? I PROMISE I'm not throwing shade about the eyes. It's just that 'Martin' does things like that, at least he did in his show years ago with 'Gina' and em'. I'm so serious with the question. Ya'll know me. .It seems like she works with a lot of local businesses to put on these events.
This man I know gave out free backpacks, school supplies and reading books to the children in his community. It was generous and helpful!There's so much wrong here. Like, so many things that can be read as representations of systemic and wide-ranging ills
- extravagant, consumerist, "kids acting grown in the wrong way" prom culture. Prom is not an achievement. And the fact that it is being elevated as such speaks volumes about the larger society.
- Wakanda escapist mentality from the literal hood. We all want some form of escapism but this is the just the current pop culture extension of the delusional, needy "we wuz Kings and queens" mentality. What makes it even more interesting that many of the AAs who made the movie such a success and are so emotionally invested in it don't pick up on the dynamics at play. If this woman and her daughter showed up at Wakanda's front door, they would not be welcome as they're the type of people wakandans world prefer to help with a 10-foot pole. I think for this family, it's mostly just a cute fairytale theme…but there is larger symbolism in how the film exists in the AA collective imagination. And the particular stains of escapism that some seek out.
- putting all that effort and money into this short-lived day when there are so many more, higher ROI opportunities that could be invested in as others noted. (and maybe the woman, who is a business owner, is indeed investing in other opps behind the scenes.) one side of me sees the personal failure of responsibility here and the other sees the systemic failure that's an intentional product of govt, big business and social engineering. It encourages hopelessness in the things that matter and a misguided, infantile hopefulness in the symbolic, conspicuous things that don't.
So I'm left asking, to what end? What is the point of this? "feeling like a fairytale" to whom and for whom?
