TFGR can’t catch a break! After being outed for “borrowing” content for her essay on being a dark-skinned woman in America, Tameka went on a twitter rampage where she blasted the author who accused her of stealing her words:
The one quote that I found most interesting was:
“To steal ideas from one person is called PLAGAIRISM, to steal ideas from many is research.” ~ Unknown Ppl seek claim & fame by any means!
Someone please tell Tameka that to steal ideas at all is still STEALING! It’s really like a half-assed confession to say “yeah… I stole from you and several others but it was RESEARCH not plagairism…” *sigh* Just give the chick her credit and move on…
Meka also wrote a full explanation over at Global Grind where she gave the credit for her inspiration to several well-known Black authors including Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, Alex Haley, Susan Taylor, Khalil Gibran, Langston Hughes, Frederick Douglass and Zora Neale Hurston. She still failed to mention Aisha Curry but I guess her pride stands in the way. Stay tuned….
