|Mmm... Black juice.|
Lately everyone is telling me “Orange is the new Black.” I hate when people say crap like this. Orange is the new black, black is the new white, pink is the new 50, 50 is the new 20, 20 is the new black, blah blah blahhhh!! What’s wrong with Black being the past present and future black? If orange is the new black then what does that mean for Halloween? Are all my Halloween decorations just going to be all black? That’s crazy! You need orange in there to provide some contrast for godsake! Orange isn’t the new black. You know what the new black is? African American. If anything is the new black, African American is the new black because that’s the term you’re supposed to use instead of “Black.” If that was what people were saying to me then that’s fine because the acceptable term for “Black” changes every ten or twenty years so that requires announcing what the new version is, but orange isn’t the new black. Who said that? Snooki? People who tan too much wish they were black, but that doesn’t mean orange is the new black. -- Michelle from Houston
“Orange is the new Black” is just the name of a TV show about a women’s prison…
