Chrisette Michele Defends Tina Campbell
After Tina Campbell got Psalms scalped for admitting to voting for Trump, she’s got a new ally.
Chrisette Michele whose social media confession about being dropped by her label and suffering a miscarriage (complete with a picture of a miscarried fetus) sent Twitter into a tizzy, has something headazz to say.
According to the “Blame It On Me” singer, she stands with her fellow “strong black woman” Tina Campbell who’s entitled to her opinion on Cheeto In Chief and shouldn’t be “choice shamed.”
“Adults do this thing I’d like to call “choice shaming”,” wrote Chrisette. “We can disagree without division.”
Unfortunately for her ill-advised message was expertly eviscerated by people pointing out that the black community is entitled to make the choice not to support them.
So for Tina Campbell’s yet to comment.
Christians, Buddhists and Muslims all have different philosophy. We're still all one people. Democrats and Republicans usually never agree, but we can disagree without division. Tina. You've lifted up so many hearts, shared your very personal story to let women know they aren't alone in their struggles and obstacles. You've come thru a bumpy relationship and showed us what forgiveness truly looks like. You're not alone. While hot water surrounds any political choice I know you've followed your convictions. You thought that from your Christian perspective, sticking to your roots was the way. While I don't support "Trump", I support your cry of love over the years. Your music has brought me closer to the Father and healed my heart from the first time you sang. I stepped on the stage to sing before a crowd I didn't agree with, having the intention to heal, unify, be a voice. We can disagree with out dividing. We can love each other with different views and perspectives. We can't tear each other down when people don't say what we want them to. It's so important that choices begin conversations and not crucifixion. Adults do this thing I'd like to call "choice shaming". It mimics what children do with bullying. It causes a silencing that mutes the people who have made great contributions. I pray that your next steps in life are full with conversation amongst the greatest minds and compel a more peaceful and unified space for us all to live in, with our very own convictions. If the cause is to lift up the name of our Father, love, unity and peace, I'd sing with you on any stage just like I did with our brother Travis. #StrongBlackWoman with a unique perspective and her very own voice. Peace be with you 🙏🏾
