“I’m Soooo Black And You’re Not!”

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 5, 2008

The Undercover Black Man blogs about Margaret “Peggy” Seltzer (aka Margaret B. Jones) the author of Love and Consequences: A Memoir of Hope and Survival:

It’s the story of how young Margaret used to run with the Bloods – along with her foster brothers – and sell drugs… until she turned her life around and left the gang-banging behind.

Guess what?

Fucking lies. All of it.

Her real name is Margaret “Peggy” Seltzer. She’s white. Just plain ol’ white. And she grew up comfortable in white-ass Sherman Oaks with her natural family.

  1. Should I laugh or cry?

  2. Renegade Eye: Yeah seriously. A lot of issues surrounding that case; white privilege, journalistic ethics, representations of race in American media, lots of issues.

    I think it’s a shame. People are actually dying over gang violence whether due to being members or being innocent bystanders, and are desperately searching for a way out or to protect themselves.

    And here comes a woman from a privileged background whom has not suffered the attrocities written in her book and sought to gain fame and wealth by exploiting others invisibility and poverty.

    Disgusting.
