Polyandry or having multiple HUSBANDS is almost totally unheard of in Black and Brown societies.
Just like matriarchies are almost totally unheard of in Black and Brown socities but was common in Europe.
Only the Europeans practiced polyandry.
They practiced it right up to the time they started exploring the globe and came across a plentiful supply of women of color they could exploit.
They still do it in secret in the Elk's Club and other secret societies.
It's called "wife swapping" or "swinging".
The polyandry practiced in Africa wasn't by BLACK Africans but by WHITE Berbers who settled on the Northern shores....and they were of Greek descent.
But that ain't telling anybody anything new.....
We all know Black men had/have too much testosterone and pride to be sharing thier women with eachother....lol.
We always had MULTIPLE WOMEN.
Now, this "wife swapping thing reminds of a TV series i watched on DsTV
It's called "wife swap" BUt on this series, the women just go to live with another man and plays the role of a mother in the mans family while the mans wife does the same things in the other woman's family.( i wonder if this makes sense.lol.)
Anyway, they showed a Black man swaping his wife for a white womman to come live with them for a week or so and play the role of a mother. Now this black mans wife will go to live with the white womans husband who is also whie and play the role of a mother to his children.
Anytime i watch this..it's always Black people and white people "swapping"
Now i would like to know if this is modern day Poloyandry.
Well, Dave Chappelle had a skit with the exact same concept several months before the show aired. (His was Trading Spouses which is now a show on Fox). It is hard not to conclude some coypright infringement was going on.
There was another skit that I think they may have ripped off called 'Intervention' which is now on I believe on A & E.
But anyway, in relation to the thread this is some very interesting information you've presented.
Don't believe it.
When it comes to honorable and morally up-right "wholesome" family roles they never show Black people.
How many Black folks you see on Dawson's Creek or 7th Heaven?
But everytime they want to break in some perverted immoral crap then not only are the shows fully integrated but Black people are OVERLY represented as indulging in just as much freakishness as everyone else.
Believe me bro, ain't hardly no white and black people swapping spouses in real life.
Now some white men get their rocks off by watching a young Black man screw their wife infront of them....but even that's rare.
The closes thing to modern-day polyandry in the AfroAmerican community I see is how so many women are raising families of children sired by different fathers. And even in that the fathers usually stay clear of eachother.
But polyandry would never work in our community because the men would kill eachother off instead of sharing.
Thank you for this great info Brother.
you got that right,even when a blackman is doin wrong and his wife leaves him he don't wanna see her with someone new.
I agree with you.
That has always been a part of us.
A youth who does not cultivate friendship with the elderly is like a tree without roots.
There are a few examples of Black Africans such as the Maisai that practiced a form of polyandry. I will get to that later.
