The most recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta proved to be an embarrassing moment for Porsha Stewart. If you watched the episode chances are, you cringed when Porsha thought that the Undeground Railroad was an actual train. By the time this episode aired, we’re sure the housewife had been educated on this important piece of history.
But just in case she didn’t realize the error of her black history ways, cast-mate Kenya Moore wrote a personal blog post, blasting the estranged wife of Kordell Stewart. Kenya wrote:
When Porsha was perplexed at how the train operated or “who went down there first to make room because they didn’t have electric trains like we do now,” I became incensed. Her late grandfather, Hosea Williams, was a prominent civil rights activist in Atlanta. It was crystal clear that Porsha did not know that the Underground Railroad was not a literal train!
Porsha is an embarrassment to her grandfather, his legacy, her family, and most importantly, herself. It’s easy to laugh and call her dumb, but the reality is even more painful — WE have failed her. Our educational system has failed her, anyone who coddled her or encouraged her to focus on her makeup, weave, and shoes to find a man to take care of her rather than her education has failed her. Anyone laughing at this gross ignorance has failed her. I encourage all people to teach our young girls to value the things that one cannot take away from you. A woman’s value is not between her legs but between her ears.
Porsha has yet to defend herself, but we’re guessing the ‘hot topic’ will be brought up during the reunion show. Anywho, check out Episode 8.
