Gabrielle Union Refuses to Be the 'Happy Negro'


Last month Gabrielle Union was fired from Americas Got Talent after exposing the racist and sexist culture behind the scenes at NBC [click here if you missed that].

Despite being fired Gabrielle stands by her actions....

This week Gabrielle Union was in Manhattan for the Power of Inclusivity and the Women Leading the Charge panel and told the audience,
“Don’t be the happy negro that does the bidding of the status quo because you’re afraid. Don’t allow them to call you angry when someone else is called passionate. It’s terrifying. There’s a solid chance you’ll lose your job … I speak from experience.”
Gabrielle never mentioned her AGT bosses by name, but it was clear who and what she was talking about.

She was not fired. They just didn’t offer her an extension to her 1 year contract.
She is trying to be a justice warrior. First with the stepson and now with this made up controversy.

She thought parading that lil boy/girl padussy around was gonna lock her in. Now she mad and looking like boo boo the fool.

I stand by her. Too many black folks crave and itch for white validation or think that a black person isn't worth anything until they get white support.

I don't agree with how she and Dwayne are parading around their son/daughter (and I'm bi and say this) because I believe they advertising him to Hollyweird pedos like the Smith's, Charlize Theron, Madonna, Cindy Crawford, and the Kartrashians have done their children. but I do agree with her statement here.

Y'all talk shit about black celebs not doing enough or being vocal enough about how black people are treated in this country, and then when someone does, y'all are still talking shit. Is there a chance that she got older, had a child, and felt like she wanted to be more than just a pretty face? Personally, I wish more black celebs would be vocal about how things are going in this country.

Here lately Gabriel is doing too much. Don't get it twisted, she's been in the game a long time now and has kept up decent work. But, what's really going on tho?? Her publicist is working over time and she's keeping her name out. As long as she's been out, I've never heard this much about her in the last 60 or so days.. It may be more, but her has been the topic or she's been attached to something and I think she's the puppet master behind putting her bonus son "out there" and exploiting his sexual choices for hew own good. She's a beautiful woman to me, but something has always seemed unsettling about her. Maybe it's me.. ??

So her rich ass was fine being the happy negro until her contract wasn't renewed.....She's so offputting. Everyone is not in a position to walk away from their job because someone told a joke they didn't like. I do advocate for us to speak truth to power but I won't judge those who may not be in a position to lose their livelihood. Life is complicated. Hopefully some good comes from the light she has now chosen to shed....but she still irks me.

Gabby is part of a larger agenda. How ironic that she would say she won't do the bidding of the status quo....***sigh**** That's exactly what the hell she is doing with that Alphabet Mafia!
I cannot take this woman serious. From her finger in the booty loving husband to parading that lil boy around like pedophile bait to her sudden workplace warrior bullsh*t......I'm done!!!

I'd love to hear/see anyone fight for the injustices in ANY industry/area. What I don't want to hear/see is someone who is STILL PART OF and has greatly benefited from and NOW YEARS later wants to cry about said industry. These happy negros have ALWAYS thirsted for the approval of TPTB.

@9:48am R in NYC
Exactly. She's been the happy negro for SOOO long and had this situation not happened, she would have NEVER spoken out and CONTINUED her role as the happy negro.
