How often have you read that those damned black celebrities hate they black women? Those damned Ocho Cincos and Tiki Barbers and what not? Everytime you read about their antics, it makes you think that ALL black celebrities hate they black womenz, don’t it! (Except for Denzel, Will and Sam)
And you went on the blogs and boards and black websites speaking forth your anger and confusion at those brothers who seem to hate us sisters! You thought, “As soon as they get a piece of some money, there they go over the fence!” What you didn’t realize and wasn’t focused on is the manipulative power of the media, and their razor sharp focus on you, and how you see yourself black woman!
You were on discussion boards about how we black sisters gonna DEAL with this madness! You watched CNN’s report on the sadness that is the educated black woman’s manless plight. You decided to give up on the black man. You said, “If he don’t want me, I don’t want him either!” You equated a small minority of black celebrities with all Black Male Celebrities and All Black Men, period! You started hating on the Kim Kardashians and Ambar Roses of the world, didn’t you girl? Admit it girl. You know you did!
(Personally, I didn’t hate on ’em, but just commented that Kim was fake. 😉 )
This morning I was on Pebble’s Blog–Locked Up and Finally Free, and I saw this video that slapped me back to my senses concerning black celebrities and their choices for wives! Ladies, we’ve been had! Bamboozled! Hoodwinked! How long will this continue to happen to us? I’m just saying.
Maybe we have to be much more careful how we receive ANYTHING that the media puts forth about black people in general, black men in particular and black women especially!! In other words, DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE!
I’m talking to me too!
DISCLAIMER: AS I HAVE STATED BEFORE, IM NOT AGAINST INTERRACIAL DATING. WHAT IAM AGAINST IS THOSE BROTHERS THAT BRAG ABOUT NOT WANTING BLACK WOMEN FOR A BUNCH OF STUPID, SELF HATING STEREOTYPICAL REASONS. ‘NUFF SAID.
PS: I just recently found this video of a brother comparing a relationship with a black woman to one with a white woman. Hmmmmmmmmmmm……………………….
