Solange Perfectly Explains How You Can Be “Woke” And Still Love Ratchet Reality TV
We all know some people who turn up their noses at reality TV. So for those of us who like to think of ourselves as intellectuals who also happen to love some of that so-called mindless entertainment, we often end up receiving side-eyes and “SMDH” comments from the people who know us.

Just pull a Solange and tell them you love all forms of blackness.
Or you could just tell them to mind their business. That seems to work, too.
