Over the last few months, I’ve been inundated with questions and discussions on the life and dealings of a socialite. Well, I feel like that topics been covered, extensively. But I have adopted a Soulcialite moniker, and I want to attempt to define it.
GIVING ALL CREDIT WHERE ALL CREDIT IS DUE
Let me say that from my knowledge, Raneka Young is the originator of the term Soulcialite. She goes by that title on twitter @Soulcialite. She’s my girl, and I hope I represent the moniker well.
On a side note – as a high school Senior, I wrote my Senior thesis paper comparing Malcolm X to Ralph Waldo Emerson. Both men took dramatic stands in philosophy at at one point in their lives, and then drastically abandoned said philosophies for radically different ones.Peep that.
DEFINING THE SOULCIALITE
She is a member of several networks, formal and informal, and committed to improving the African American community.
The following characteristics may bring up issues of elitism and classism within the soulcialite community.
She may or may not be a member of a black Greek letter organization (BGLO).
She was presented to society in a debutante ball.
Questions for Discussion
Must a Soulcialite conform to these standards?
What part does family wealth and pedigree (ie debutante balls) play in her Soulcialite status?
