Anytime something huge goes down in our culture, it’s to be expected that people will have different perspectives and opinions on the matter. We’ve seen the Internet divide into two polarized groups when it comes to huge things like race and politics, and even smaller issues like whether or not we should cancel Kanye.
But when it comes to Black issues, the polarization is on a whole other level. Either you’re with the popular opinion, or you’re deemed ignorant, non-empathetic, or just plain ol’ bitter. A lot that energy has been going around after news broke about A$AP Rocky‘s arrested and him being detained in a Swedish prison under inhumane conditions.
Many celebrities have taken to to social media to rally behind Rocky by posting the petition to help get him free.

But others don’t feel as strongly about freeing Rocky as others do. The Read podcast co-host Crissle West is one the people who spoke out against the popular wave to free the Harlem rapper, and her reasoning was exceedingly valid. Plus she had receipts.
