Watch the Amazing Way a Black Woman Responds to âHairstylistâ
The latest episode of ABCâs âWhat Would You Do?â sets up patrons at a Harlem barber shop to see how bystanders would respond to a black woman criticizing a black man for dating a white woman.
One of the bystanders responded in the most amazing way possible.
The setup begins with âRachel,â an actress playing a hairstylist at the Harlem barbershop Denny Moeâs, flirting with a black man in the shop. When his white âgirlfriendâ walks in, Rachel begins voicing her opposition to their relationship.
âYouâre with a white girl?â she says. âYou couldnât find a strong black woman for you?â
One woman sitting next to the white girlfriend quickly leans over and comforts her. âNobody here is bothered by you,â she says in the video.
Rachel then tells the boyfriend that she hopes they donât have any children.
It was at this point that the black woman, who first embraced the actress playing the white girlfriend, could no longer contain herself.
âLike I said, she sounds like a real hater and sheâs insecure,â the woman says in the video. âSheâs ignorant. âŚ Iâm talking about youâŚyou are ignorant. Keep your opinions to yourself because you sound stupid, alright?â
Still, she wasnât done.
âIâm letting you know, black girl to another black girl, you sound stupid,â she lectured. âAs much criticism as we went through as a people, you gonna go and do it to the next person? What gives you that right?â
When Rachel asked the woman why she was defending a white woman, she replied: âI donât care what she was, she could be purple. Iâm defending a woman. Period.â
