    seems to be a lot of that on here...

    ALL black females don't have attitudes
    ALL black females aren't ignorant and self haters
    ALL black females don't diss brothers..

    too much bitterness for me...
    I know most things here tend to be serious.. but ligthen up..

    I agree Sister Nubian One.

    We should not always have to fight, defend, or ignore such. Especially here, in our own home.

    It's tiring, to say the least.

    LOL... Isaiah, it wouldn't be right to drop names, now would it..although if I have to I will .. ha.. I don't like discordance..but you can still teach them a lil something something, as far as I'm concerned..

    Thanx Pan..lol

    And Destee, it definitely is tiring to say the least.. and sorta played out.. And I think it goes for both men and women.. I'm a young woman..but women in general especially black women have heard brothers sing the same song for generations.. It's old..

    but to each his own...

    People take the negative from the positive. As African-American women we are independent and strong-minded; not afraid to speak our minds, and to others looking in from the outside of our race see that as having an "attitude". Then it doesn't help when the media and some of these rap artists and the women in their videos portraying us as being hoes and what not.

    in all due respect...Nubian one


    some sistas do have attitudes..
    some sistas are ignorant and self-haters...
    some sistas do diss brothers....

    isnt the sentiment that "all black women are Queens" a generalization? like all black women have the most perfect, ancestral genetics that make them perfect and well-balanced?

    I think we see equal amounts of male-bashing here too

    . And Im not gonna sweat and drool and endlessly praise someone I only know thru the internet, or make the blind assumption that just because you have melanin, you are deserving of "Queen or King" titles.......they do that in Spoken Word poetry waaaayyyy too often....you could go into sugar shock.

    now, i know im gonna get hammered for this...but personally, not ever sista is a Queen, or deserving of Queenship. Just like all brothas aint Kings or deserving of Kingship......

    I tend to disguard that "King/Queen" glorifying of us. Why can't we just be "regular".....just humans trying to survive a society that hates us, and using any tactic to survive.....sometimes displaying "un-Queenly"-like behavior......

    to quote my man...."just cause you wear headwrap or kufis....dont mean you worthy of the "King/Queen" titles....... and aint none of ya'll n9ggas flowed on the Nile or held a kingdom together, let alone your own families....."

    Just my opinion.
    Let the hatred begin.

    All Black women don't have a bunch of children
    All Black women aren't good Christians
    All Black women don't have bad credit
    All Black women aren't and have no desire to be 'Superwomen'
