I had a life experience this weekend.
I went to New York for Labour Day.
I didn’t go to the New York of Sex in the city, an Affair to Remember or any other such picture-esque places.
I went to the New York of Jay-z, Flatbush, Jamaica Ave and Boyz in the Hood. (Ok so Boyz was shot in LA, but you get the drift!)
We stayed in the Brooklyn for the most part. All weekend long I was referred to as the light skinned, skinny ‘ting.’ This was because for the entire weekend I was literally the white person in the group. And I’m not even white.
I have a lot of stories for you guys.
I leave you with this saying that I heard over the weekend which sums up the trip:
‘Wah she nah learn, she mus feel’
