New Black Pharrell Williams Is The Old Black

New Black Pharrell Williams Is The Old Black. The idea of “New Black” as Pharrell Williams and others express it, is really the Old Black. The New Black says, as Williams put it, “The New Black doesn't blame other races for our issues. The New Black dreams and realizes that it's not a pigmentation; it's a mentality. And it's either going to work for you, or it's going to work against you. And you've got to pick the side you're gonna be on." But the bottom line is The New Black is just us responding to a white World around us, and saying 'Ok, white folks, we're not threatening' unlike those other blacks you're used to. And if you think about that, it means one black person putting another black person down before a white audience. That's what the New Black does – but it's not new at all. In my life there have been blacks who commonly put other blacks down in an effort to look more appealing to whites. That's why I just hate this “New Black” idea – it's the crabbarrel all over again. And that's nothing new.
