a discussion we had in WLC concerning women.
And guys on here get so bent out of shape when we voice our opinions on how we feel unwanted by men, especially black men. Like we’re a last option. And I’ve experienced this in all walks of life. This wasn’t just an isolated incidence. That way of thinking is prevalent. Regardless of the opinions of 50 or even a 100 black men on tumblr. Folks get on here and act like they forget how the real world operates and thinks and then points the finger at us when we voice frustrations. And this is not to say all black men feel this way, but I come across more that do than don’t. And many women react the way these women did because they’re conditioned to think they are a last option, if an option at all. It’s so sad to think we believe someone is lying when they pick us first. Sorry for all the commentary on your video, Walker.
The most unprotected person in America is the Black woman; and not only that, but the most unwanted.
Our existence has always been contingent upon a lot of things, especially being our bodies. If you don’t have ass, if you aren’t thick, if you aren’t light skin, if you aren’t conventionally “pretty”, if you aren’t conventionally “feminine”, if you aren’t conventionally fitting into a mold that White Supremacy first and foremost has formed, and that your OWN have internalized and modified to use against you, you’re not worth anything.
That’s why I get annoyed with the whole “White girls are getting more ass lately, better watch out!” type of shit because it still feeds into the idea that I’m only “Black” enough or “worth” enough if I look a certain way—and that’s some Class A Bullshit.
There is nothing wrong with Black women. There is nothing about Black women that is inherently unattractive. There is nothing that Black women solely possess which makes them unworthy of attention. All I can think of people who honestly believe Black women should never be a first option is that they don’t appreciate (a) Blackness, and (b) Black womanhood and the way that it has shaped, guided, and lead our history as a people.
Everybody wanna be first in line to be talking about being pro-Black, but they’ll be the first ones finding any and every bone to pick with Black women because it’s easy and it’s accepted.
Try that shit on a Black man and it’s a whole different story.
