it seems that many of the men, if not all, have a problem with what the "black woman is doing", mainly, giving more attention to the white man and dissin our brothers out there. i agree with how that's disturbing, ignoring a part of the race, but it is surprising to me that noone touches base with the fact that a lot of black men date white women. Not only that, some men (i won't say anyone from destee) have completely dogged the black woman. they say that we're gold diggers and we're picky and what not...i understand how that it could be part of what's destroying the black community. But is it not equally ignorant if a black man does not give the slightest attention to a black women either? is it not the same type of damage to the community? im sorry but it all seems one sided to how the black women likes the white man better or how they give them more attention. i think some of yall need to check both sides. Because from where im at, the sistahs aint the ones doin much. it more seems the other way around. maybe i feel defensive because the way the topics were expressed, it was if the sistahs were being directly accused for these actions, when as i noticed, most if not all the women couldn't even relate to the question. and im not sayin it's a problem to date white women, just like it ain't a problem to date white men, the issue is that both black men and women date from the white race and ignore their own in turn...and that's how it should be approached guys.


peace out
one love

black PEOPLE are doing something wrong by not loving our own selves.
we could elevate our own community but our talented tenth is busy working AGAINST us rather than together with us. :grouphug:

I won't say that black women in general are doing something "wrong", but I can say that from a personal perspective I feel that I havent' exactly been done right either. When I was in college I was virtually ignored by black women, DAILY...all 5 1/2 years of school. Now they weren't after white guys or anything like that that I saw, they just weren't into me, which I had no choice but to deal with. I wasn't in a frat, didn't have a car, and was poor and didn't have any nice clothes. I wasn't athletic (besides martial arts) and simply wasn't interesting or attractive enough I guess. I was pitiful back then and spent many a night staring at the ceiling wondering "why?".

I have learned to live with all that.

But I recieved a truck load of attention from non-black women. Now I wasn't interested in non-black women, but on this day I tell you I wish I had been, because I would have been a whole lot happier. I'm sure most of those women were buying into the "black man myth" (a sexual beast built by God to physically satisfy a woman) but man it felt good, and I'm sure at least a few of them were sincere in their interest. The ACKNOWLEDGEMENT I received from other women actually made me smile at times, but the affect it had on my so called sisters was something else. I would get the dirtiest looks from black women on campus just for even having a conversation with a white girl in between classes. Now mind you, these same women would never go out with me (I tried), didn't acknowledge me, and only invited me places because they wanted another male body in attendance.

Needless to say it was maddening. These women didn't want anything to do with me, but didn't want me to have anything to do with anyone else.

So then it was I began to wonder, "what do non-black women see in me that black women don't?". If white women see me as an attractive sexual being, then why wouldn't a black woman? What about the Japanese girl that tried to get with me, what did she see that was so special? Or the Arab girls who would look at me and turn away bashfully as I caught their gaze? What did THEY see? I even tried asking a few black women this same question over the years, but none have been able to answer the question. What do they see that you don't? I'm still wondering. On many occasions I have actually thought about simply going where I'm wanted, but I know I would not be happy. What I want comes in any one of beautiful shades of brown, but what's a man to do?

So like I said, I don't think black women are doing anything wrong, but I've never had a black woman do me right. I can't speak for all the men on this board, but that's where I'm coming from.

You make a few good points, however I think you make a few blanket assertions about black men, perhaps being a teenager with little experience of the outside world would cause you to do so.

Most black men love and are with black women, at least 90% of us are. The one's you that don't pay attention to black women are either taken or have a problem with black women as a whole, or as NNQueen said in another thread, made a concious choice not to be with black women.

I can't say that by ignoring black women that this constitutes "damage" to the community. I think the behavior would on the part of these "brothas" would have to be more deliberate and/or reactive.

Don't believe the hype my young sistah

I think some black women are a waste of Oxygen, and I kiss the pebbles that some of them walk on. However, I do not think they are really the problem, I just think the problem sometimes lies in the fact that we need to get ourselves right for Mrs. Right.

Even tho I constnantly make reference to the aforementioned point, it always falls on deaf ears. But I will reiterate to make clur. I try to fix myself so that I can no longer say Black Women are doing wrong.
