Once again the dreaded subject of the war of the race inside the Black community is rearing its ugly head. I truly think intra-racism is the worst kind of racism. I recently read an article that posed a very good question: Why do we as black women still support the men who clearly hate us? Now I'm about to pull a card here, something that I've never done. The above question is more so for my dark skinned sisters than anything. Don't get me wrong, I think black women as a whole need to stop supporting the rap industry, especially those that degrade us in almost every song and video imaginable. If they love the white women, Asian women, 'Mutts' as Kanye call them, and every other race or ethnicity of women, let those women support them. Let those be the women that they turn to in time of need. I mean, aren't we as black women sick of this mess by now? Or is it that money really rules everything around us? Is the money and the fame such an attraction that you would sell your soul to get it? I know some of you are nodding your heads and you know what? That's your business, but my self worth, my daughter's self worth, and my son's respect of the woman that brought him into this world means more than money or fame. Let me stop before I go into a whole tirade. Let me get back to the subject at hand. Black women, why do we support Lil' Wayne? Kevin Hart? Ne-Yo? Yung Berg? Polo the Don? Kanye West? There are so many more black men in the industry that hate the very essence of our beautiful black skin and yet, we flock to support them. Why? If someone could please answer that question for me, I'd be so happy. Below I've laid out a few of the black men who have shown that they really just don't like us.
Dark skinned women take a punch @ da face better than light-skinned women…u soft as yellow b–ches…lol
Beautiful black woman, I bet that b*tch look better red.” “…my daughter is the first and last dark skin child I’m having. The rest of my baby moms [are] light skinned chicks. I even got an Asian baby moms to make sure I have a daughter with good hair. Too bad we had a son.
I’m kinda racist…I don’t like dark butts…You know how some women prefer light skin men or dark skin men.It’s rare that I do dark butts – that’s what I call dark skinned women…I [don’t date women] darker than me.
I love the pool test. If you can jump in the pool exactly like you are and you don’t come out looking better than you looked before going in the pool – then that’s not a good look. Any woman that uses brown gel to set down her baby hair is not poppin.
…black women need to get their shit together, period, point black. And if you’re in denial of that, you are part of the problem. Just the “King of the White Girls.” I ain’t self proclaimed but I run with it. [Laughs] There was a stage in my life where I went crazy with dating white women. I have nothing against black women, but they’re raised differently. White women are raised to respect and serve their men. Black women are taught to question [their men]. Black women look at submission as being weak. White women look at submission as being a woman. And anyone who has a problem with this statement is ignorant. Just look at the divine order; it goes man, woman, child.
If it wasn’t for race mixing there’d be no video girls. Me and most of our friends like mutts a lot. Yeah, in the hood they call ‘em mutts.
You can’t call it a stereotype if it’s the majority. The most prevalent image in “urban society” right now is women like Nene [Leaks]. If there’s a fight that breaks out on “Love & Hip Hop” those people are one every blog, the cover of every magazine the next week. It’s not Taraji or Gabrielle, it’s whoever just got into a fist fight. Tyler’s not stereotyping, he’s holding up a mirror and people are mad at him because people don’t want to look at that image in that way.[sic]” read more of the madness here.
