I've disconnected from the pro-black movement. It's now become a patriarchal love fest. It's all about trying to help black men get the power & privilege white men have. We care more about if a white man can get away with it, then why can't a black man. I don't care about white men, or anything else I wanted liberation for all black people from things that criminalize us and marginalize us. Black women and gay black people are still victims of many things in society, & within our own race.
Pro-Blackness has always been about replacing white supremacy with black patriarchy. Black women were just duped into believing that if they stood behind black men long enough, that black men would turn around and liberate his women and children. But as you can see, that didn’t happen nor will it ever happen. That’s why I make it very clear that I am pro-black women and children ONLY.
I feel sorry for black women who think that once black men get to the level of hierarchy they want to go, that they are going to turn around and take care of us. Look how they act now. The moment they get a little bit of money or fame, who do they marry? They put their wealth right back in the hands of the very same man that they claim they hate. Look how easy it is for them to walk away from their women and children. And black women really think that if black men collectively rise to the top, that it’s going to be better for us??? If anything it would be 10x worse.
They don’t hate the white man or white supremacy. They’re just mad that they weren’t quick enough or smart enough to be in his shoes.
Black men high-key admire white men. They admire white supremacy. They admire how white men steal, colonize, and con any and everybody just to provide for their women and children. They admire how white men have the resources to adorn their women. They admire all of this. Then after the admiration simmers down, jealousy kicks in. And black men start feeling enraged at the fact that what he once had the ability to achieve has slipped from his hands because of his own negligence and self-hate. And instead of taking responsibility for his actions like a true patriarch, he blames the black woman. We nag too much. We put them on child support. We kicked them out of the house in the 60s for welfare and foods stamps. We raise them to be gay and to be thugs. We have attitudes. We’re too masculine. We don’t let them lead. We collude with white supremacy to keep black men down. We rub our college degrees in their face. We’re too fat. We’re too nappy-headed. We’re too loud and ghetto etc…
Black women are never going to be liberated by black men. Our freedom is NOT their priority and that’s just the honest truth. Collectively, they don’t see us worthy of redemption, love or protection. So the only thing I can tell black women is to put yourselves first.
