Now I loved this piece and thought to share, ..Enjoy
The media tries to imply a lot of negative things about us, we do not love ourselves, we are weak, we are vulnerable and what have you.
but I’m sorry, we aren’t the architects of destruction in this world.
I DON’T THINK SO, Baby!
First of all, let me drop a bomb on this presumption. In truth, most Black women think they are DA BOMB and are irresistible to ALL MEN. Yeah, I said that. And how could I dare do so? For one thing, when I was growing up, the sharpest dressed, sexiest, prettiest, smartest and absolutely FABULOUS women in town were BLACK WOMEN. Yup! We had it like that in my community. Not one of the ladies I saw growing up, my peers or women in general had low self-esteem nor did they feel unwanted. Actually, where I grew up, the sistahs couldn’t keep the guys away and all the Black men wanted them. Yeah…we had it going on.
It’s one thing to see images, but it’s also very important to keep one’s perspective of what is truth and what is a depiction of someone elses warped, bigoted and ignorant mentality.
The media chose us because they feel that we make easy targets. When you have Black males who are being shown fawning over white trash and dizzy blondes; the presumption is that Black men don’t want Black women, right? We all know that is not true. Statistically, The majority ofBlack men and women date and marry each other. Black love is alive and well, but I’ll tell you a fact. There has been an historic effort to destroy the Black male by removing him from the Black community. And in many areas of the country, this has had a devastating impact. The media loves images that destroy anything that appears to esteem the Black race and White Supremacy is the motivation of this.
With the ever present threats of the economy looming over us; we cannot afford to turn on one another. Unity is strength. And Black women now realize that without Black men by our sides; we’re vulnerable. The Black man is our equal and we don’t criticize Black men out of hatred, but LOVE is the motivator, director and eternal hope of that action. We know that society hates the Black man and newtricks and gimmicksare being constructed by white males in high placeseven now to destroy the Black man. Why?
Strong sistahs aren’t having it and are crying out and praying that all of those lost brothers will finally WAKE UP and hear us. Come home. It’s time.
Let it be known…that I LOVE BEING A BLACK woman, and I thank the most high God for it.
