Brandi Glanville’s Friend Takes Blame For Racist Comment

Brandi

Brandi Glanville has once again started controversy as she made a racial remark on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Teasing cast mate Joyce Giraud, Brandi compared her to “black people” because she couldn’t swim. Brandi justified her comment by saying that herĀ “black friends” would have laughed at her joke. Now, some of Brandi’s friends are taking to Facebook to defend her.

Posting the picture above and a message from Instagram, Brandi’s friend revealed Brandi has been getting death threats for the comment she made. Brandi’s friend explains she is always unfiltered and never meant to hurt anyone by her comment. Her friend chose to post the photo above because they were at a pool party together and states she wasn’t swimming that day because she didn’t want to mess up her weave. Her friend continues to defend Brandi, saying she is not a racist and doesn’t think before she speaks.

    I’m a little divided on Brandi’s comment. I watch several shows where I’ve seen many black women and men make the same comments as Brandi, just last night in fact. Is this one of those situations where it’s okay for people of ethnicity to say among themselves, but not okay for others to say, such as the (N) word?

      The issue is that the comment is completely exaggerated. Not all black women wear weave, first of all. Second of all, I know countless black women and men who can swim. Third of all, the fact that she can’t swim has absolutely nothing to do with race and everything to do with her personal choice. So no, it’s not “just like the n-word” which is a word used to belittle, describe and sell human beings. The divide with swimming pools is more rooted in Jim Crow laws than anything else, but the n-word is clearly far heavier and not “just like” that. When swimming becomes connected to the Middle Passage, then you make comparisons like that.

    Mike, My gut tells me it was inappropriate for Brandi to say, I think its just like the “N” word, certain people cannot say it. Its totally inappropriate & mean spirited.

      I agree it was wrong for her to say it, I just think all those calling her a racist for saying something that really wasn’t a racist comment, it was more of a stereotype, was going overboard. I’m sure of people went back and looked at some for the arguments between NeNe and Kim Z, there were probably a lot of stereotype comments between the two of them and I didn’t hear either of them being called a racist. Before people use words like racist, bully bullying and others, they need to look up the definition of what they are saying and not just throw these words around. Those words have real meanings and makes people think twice when someone claims to be victims.

        Mike – Just for the record Kim Z was called a racist more than once. Yet Nene was never called out on some of the comments she has made. Again Double Standards.

    It is a double standard African Americans can say whatever they want about Whites but the Whites have to always be to not offend the African Americans.

      “Whites have to always be to not offend the African Americans.”
      So you completely slept through decades and centuries worth of ridicule from Jim Crow, Blackface, slavery and other forms of ridicule long before reality TV, huh? *shaking my head*

    Shamontiel – No I haven’t slept through the years of the double standards. I as sick of it as I have been all these years. There is no superior race and all races should treat each of with respect.
