Apparently, there’s a show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network called “Black Women OWN the Conversation,” and from the small sample we’ve witnessed, it might be worse than “The View.” In a recent episode, Brittney Cooper explained why black women don’t lose as much weight on the same diets as white women, and the theory is that the racism that black women experience — the struggle — makes the diets not work for them. We’re not members of the party of science, so we’re not going to judge.
White people are responsible for these women being obese. And perhaps for their mental illness, as well? pic.twitter.com/V3C5l0VmBE

She sure is getting a lot of amens from the audience members, though.
You would think she was giving a sermon with all the head nods and hands up.

I love all the head nodding in agreement.

Always a happy moment when someone wrenches in a way to blame something on racism–even obesity. Such a good feeling to know that nothing is your fault and that you can always blame it on that to make yourself feel better.

The stress responses in the body are screaming for her to stop eating a giant bag of Doritos every night while she watches TV.

Yep, we're responsible for everything! It has nothing to do with eating a dozen doughnuts for a snack.. Just one thing though, how does one explain skinny bitches?
