In an effort to answer the burning questions in your mind about me, I've compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that I receive.
1. What the hell is a Jasmyne Cannick?
The appropriate question would be who is Jasmyne Cannick?
Good question, she’s still trying to figure that out herself, lol.
Borrowing from one of her favorite songwriters Alanis Morissette:
“What I know for sure is that I'm broke but I'm happy, I'm poor but I'm kind, I'm high but I'm grounded, I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed, I'm lost but I'm hopeful, I'm young and I'm underpaid, I'm tired but I'm working, I'm here but I'm really gone, I'm wrong and I'm sorry, I'm free but I'm focused, I'm green but I'm wise, I'm hard but I'm friendly, I'm sad but I'm laughing, I'm brave but I'm chicken shit, I'm sick but I'm pretty baby.
I've got one hand in my pocket, and the other one is flicking a cigarette.
What it all comes down to, is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet.”
2. Is she Black?
3. Does Jasmyne just focus on gay issues?
No. Jasmyne focuses on issues that are relevant to the Black community as a whole. It just so happens that gay issues are a part of the Black Diaspora.
4. Is Jasmyne racist?
It’s very common for people to confuse Jasmyne’s being pro-Black for being racist. But in actuality, some of her closest friends are of other races. In fact, you have to look no further than her own family to see that her family is racially diverse.
5. Why is Jasmyne such a hater?
Jasmyne is not a hater. She’s a realist and sometimes reality isn’t pretty or nice.
6. Is Jasmyne rich?
Unless you mean rich like bad meaning good, then no. Jasmyne works a 9 to 5 like everyone else and is just trying to keep her head above water. However, please feel free to contribute to her cause by making a secure donation through Paypal.
7. Why does Jasmyne post so many photos of herself?
Well, it is JasmyneCannick.com and it is her blog. Besides, chances are if you lost 75 pounds, could see your ankles again, and reclaimed your self-esteem back, you’d post just as many pics as she does. Don’t hate congratulate!
Basically what I'm trying to say is...
8. Why did Jasmyne delete my comments and ban me from her site?
Probably because you crossed the line and took it somewhere it didn’t need to go. Why it doesn’t happen often, Jasmyne will revoke your right to make comments on her site if you disrespect her. For example, if you call her a nigger, a bitch, a Black nigger bitch, or any other variation, chances are you’ll be banned.
9. Is Jasmyne anti-church?
No. Jasmyne is anti-Black-mega-church-pastors who are hypocrites and use their power and influence to put others down and to separate the Black community.
