I’m Not The Average Black Girl

Ernestine Johnson is a compelling actress, performance poet and event host.  She’s made appearances on network TV shows and theater performances in Los Angeles, California (where she was raised).  She is also known in the spoken word community, infamous for being uncensored and untamed on the microphone, speaking on matters dear to the heart. Ernestine now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. She can be seen on GMC’s original stage play Sugar Momma’s and her latest film Reckless.

Fortunately Arsenio Hall had the good sense to bring this woman onto his show to perform one of her spoken word pieces.  Take a listen and switch your mind from the identity politics of the day and understand a bit more about the politics of identity.  Enjoy!

About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
