    If so, what is "too independent"? And, why?

    Some professional Black men are turned off, just like some professional Black women are turned off by non-professional Black men. If you want to know what is considered "too
    independent" to those brothers who are turned off by independent sisters, you probably have to find a few and ask them. From what I have seen on this website, most of the brothers here seem to have no problem having relationships with professional Black women. I know a few of us have even married ourselves one.

    Thank you for your response. I guess I am trying to have a more civil response than what we had here:

    https://destee.com/threads/feminism-how-to-know-if-you-are-a-slave-oow-births.85836/

    I am confused about what exactly AA men want from AA women.

    There is a tremendous amount of energy here espousing the hatred of feminism by AA men, that is easily triggered. I haven't figured out exactly how AA men define feminism. On that thread I referenced, it was only about women working in the home and outside the home. There was no reference to whether the woman was married, single, or divorced, yet within the first post, posters were talking about feminism.


    Am I to believe that a woman working fulltime is assumed to be a feminist? And, are AA men more attracted to women who do not work? These are the things that confuse me.

    I have been called both, and I am neither, nor am I a lesbian, btw.

    I don't make much of these ad hominem attacks made in frustration by posters when they have nothing else to add to the discussion. I am more than sure they don't even believe the nonsense they type, they are simply trying to get a rise outta me...LOL

    IMO : what black people need to hate on is the system of white supremacy......

    To effectively fight white supremacy, we need a completely unified front. That is we must include ALL AAs, regardless of all our differences, imo.
