This has been on my chest for sometime now...
Why are black men so quick to denounce black women? Understandably you’ve came across some angry black women who fit the stereotype of the diva, hood, ignorant and loud woman that the white media continuously glamorize, but not every black woman is like that. Not every black woman is out there advocating for feminism in ignorance, not every black woman is hooked on labels, not every black woman twerks and goes to the club half naked every weekend, not every black woman replaces home cooked meals and cleanings with take out or maid service, not every black woman speaks solely in ebonics, not every black woman uses BET as a qualified news outlet, and not every black woman wants to emasculate you. There are black women out there who want more. Black women who are secure in their God given skin and who are proud to identify with their race. I am black and I am proud. I will not alter my physical or mental self to appease you. I will not lower my standards to attract you, neither will I disrespect myself for you. Black women have goals. Black women do pursue higher education. Black women do want respect. Black women do want to express themselves without be judge. Black women do want the support and love from men of their own race. Black women do want to hear that their midnight complexion all the way down to the caramel sand complexion that they’ve been blessed with is beautiful. Black women can love, black women do love. No she is not too black to be your wife. No her hair is not too kinky. No she is not too loud. No she is not too expressive of the black culture. No she is not too accepting of herself. She is strong, she is black and she is proud. Black men you too are black. You were developed, nurtured and loved from the womb of a black woman. Don’t live your life in ignorance, try to open your eyes. WTFU.
