A 4th grade teacher in Atlanta wore a cute pink dress and suede heels to school. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, right? It isn’t unless you’re fly and built like a shit brickhouse. Patrice Brown has become a thing because niggas act like they can’t control themselves because a pretty woman is teaching children. Respectability politics is rearing its ugly head again.
God forbid black men and boys be held accountable for their penile functions at the sight of a beautiful sister. A teacher can’t even do her job because SHE’S a “distraction”. And some black women aren’t helping by inserting their ridiculous ass opinions. The teacher’s beauty isn’t the issue. This is a degreed individual. It’s your simple-minded parenting style. Let’s be real. Half the “brothers” who are popping off at the mouth have most likely NEVER seen the inside of their child/children’s school. STFU. A woman has to come into a place to educate your raggedy, heathens and be subjected to prepubescent boys’ lack of hometraining.
My 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Tim, was from Texas and every day she wore pencil skirts and heels. She had the world’s most perfect ass. I’m talking rivaling Michelle Obama’s ass. This was 1985. Teachers have always worn heels, dresses, and fitted pants. It’s nothing new. Get over yourselves. The message here is no matter what a man does.. it’s the woman’s fault. I watched women cosign this fuckery.
We do way too much. Worry about smoking weed around your children. Worry about those ill-mannered bastards not knowing how to read full sentences. STOP worrying about their teacher’s clothes. Stop raising future rapists, abusers and fuck ups.
I’m sure if you ask Patrice Brown’s students if they love her, they will sing her praises. The irony of this situation is if she looked a mess, IT WOULD STILL BE A PROBLEM. Is it really sensible to ask if the onus falls on the women to be “presentable” even when SHE IS dressed appropriately?
Fuckboys need to hurry up and grow up already. Y’all are pathetic.
