I think the biggest rift between Black Men and Women (especially on social media) is that there are huge groups of ignorant niggas that for some reason have the loudest voices on here.

These niggas are completely one sided and  jaded with no interest  of correcting or educating themselves. They hang around other niggas that are just like them and feel like just because a lot of people agree with them ,then that means its a fact

ONE MILLION WRONG NIGGAS = ONE MILLION WRONG NIGGAS

Just because a lot of people have the same opinion and assumption doesn’t mean it’s a fact; its still an opinion and assumption.  

But another problem with Black Men is that some of us don’t want to check our homies or bros; so in doing so you only indirectly make everything worse.

and for some reason things that Black Women deal with only seem to be a fact to the rest of the world if Black Men co-sign. So it makes women expressing their problems even harder because now they need this weird validation in order for thing to move forward in a steady way

There’s alot that needs to be fixed and addressed in our own community on both sides, so we can start making solid changes. But first we need to start separating these niggas and calling them out on their bs so we can dead this stupid mentality.

NIGGAS ≠ BLACK MEN

I always wondered what would happen if a Black Man that disrespected Black Women got into Heaven

*Gets into Heaven on a technicality*

Black Guy: Wooow, this place is beautiful!!!

Black Guy: Oh my God there’s so many people here

Black Guy: *looks around* aye, aye! Aunt Veronica, Aye its me

Aunt Veronica: *Flying by*

Black Guy: Dam… maybe she didn’t hear me.. she was pretty high up..

Black Guy: *Walking around* this place really is beautiful

Black Guy: omg is that.. AYE, AYE! Uncle Lennard, AYE its me man!

Uncle Lennard: *sitting on a bench* aw hell, they done let this negro in

Black Guy: *walks up* aye uncle, man im so glad to see you here

Uncle Lennard: hey man… so they let you in huh..

Black Guy: Yea man, but to be honest i barely got in. Bruh at the gate said that thanks to my blood donation i saved a few hundred people so it kinda balanced out everything.

Uncle Lennard: well ain’t that bout a bitch

Black Guy: Huh?

Uncle Lennard: nothin.. its nothin nephew.. *stands up* good to see ya.. *walks off*

Black Guy: Dam what was that about??

Black Guy: *walking around* i wonder what was up with Unc just now..

Black Guy: *flash backs to him tweeting all lives matter against black protest*

Black Guy: *makes a deep gasp*

Uncle Craig: uh huh, you done fucked up big time nephew

Uncle Craig: and don’t think we ain’t see those post you made talking mess about dark skin women

Black Guy: But i…

Uncle Craig: ooo wait till yo great ancestors see yo ass *skirrrts off*

Black Guy:

As im writing this, i kinda figured this could be pretty good for a lil series. Like a story talking about the history and effects of racism and colorism. Like a black satire or like a old school spike lee joint 🤔

Something different

Idk, Lemme know what y'all think. i can make this just a regular storytime post, or into a big story with chapters and junk..

i’ll decide from the feedback 😬👍🏾

I’m SO SICK of this idea that if your afro does not touch your shoulders it’s not a good afro or it’s automatically ‘still in progress’. ANY AND ALL AFROS ARE GOOD AND VALID AFROS, REGARDLESS OF SIZE.
