After backlash over slavery remarks, Steve Harvey says this….(podcast) | Your Black World


Steve Harvey after backlash:

“Become skilled at deflecting negative energy. Keep your focus and attention on your own dreams. Refuse to be influenced by a hater’s opinion of you. #ActLikeaSuccess”

Dr. Boyce Watkins:

I should say that as a big fan of Steve Harvey, I am not happy having this conversation. However, I suggest that all of us ensure that we protect the memory of our ancestors and realize that the words “I don’t give a damn about slavery” being stated by a prominent black man in front of millions of people does a horrific disservice to those who came before us.
