Sanaiah25 said:The same could be said for men. Why is it that every time someone makes a movie about a black woman being mistreated by a black man, it is called male bashing. How many people have criticized Tyler Perry for "Diary Of A Mad Black Woman", or "The Color Purple", or "Women Of Brewster Place", etc... Even though some of these movies are based upon actual people's experiences and relationships, it is always viewed by black men as male bashing. The criticisms in these films aren't even made directly, but instead subtlely in fictional, cinematic form. So definately black men are just as sensitive concerning this issue.
Because of the disparity between positive black male roles and negative black male roles. It's the same when you turn on a music video and women complain about being shown as whores (and they should complain), because of the fact that you never see women viewed in a respectable manner. Black men get tired of it, because we never see anything different. The comment about my post being black woman bashing was way off and it was a stretch to make it out to be something it wasn't.
I think there have been solutions discussed. Interracial dating (which many see not as a solution, but a door opening up to more problems). Polygomy for one, even though IMO, I don't think that would ever work for black folks in America (even if it were legal). Other than that, your fighting numbers. If there are less men than women, there's nothing you can do about that short of trying to clone black men.
