Gabrielle Union has shared a woman’s story about her experience with racism to raise awareness about how deep it goes.
The American actress, whose exit as a host from America’s Got Talent was linked to racism, shared the woman’s story on Twitter as she called for an end to racism in the United States of America.
In the story shared by Gabrielle, the woman, who is an African American, told of how an appraiser who came by to check her home valued it a lot less than other neighboring homes that were smaller. The woman also spoke about the judgment in the appraiser’s eyes.
She decided to ask for a second appraisal and she took down all the photos of Black relatives then left only her White husband at home and when an appraiser came the second time, the value they placed on the house was way higher.
The woman concluded her post by saying that “racism silently but conspicuously steals wealth” because it places less value on Black people and their belongings.
Sharing the woman’s post, Gabrielle Union wrote: “Read this. Read it again. We arent imagining racism. We arent overly sensitive. We live it everyday. Racism impacts every facet of life. Racism can kill, maim, wound, brutalize, and steal. It has to stop.”

Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube.
