    nwga (warning: this might be offensive to some, enter if you dare)

    I was feelin kinda controversial when I wrote this so let me run this by yall. It's not one of my best but it's definitely a favorite. I'm sending this out to all the OJ Simpsons, Bryant Gumbels, and Kobe Bryants

    nwga (no white girls allowed)

    No white girls allowed
    To cornrow their straight hair
    Sashaying around town
    Seducing brothas’ stares
    Tryin to mimic our style
    You think you’re fly?
    Just look at OUR bodies
    Then ask yourself why

    No white girls allowed
    That’s what they told Emmitt Till
    He whistled at one
    They shot to kill

    No white girls allowed
    Fake-*** wannabe black
    Britney, Dream, and Pink
    Yall are really quite whack

    No white girls allowed
    When will my brothers learn
    That a blackwoman’s love
    For them will always burn

    No white girls allowed
    To love my Black man
    Only I can love him
    Like a Black woman can

    Nappy! The issues underlying this whole thing run deep. And though love is love where ever its found, we definetely face have a problem on our side(black men and women), especially taking into consideration that so many black men are locked up in jail. You show real heart on this one. Bravo!

    Nappygrl ... i'm feeling you on this peace
    i know what you're saying
    being the black woman that i am ...

    but ...

    i have to say that everyone is welcome here
    because they truly are

    black men choose white women
    no one is making them do that
    they want to go there
    and should be able to
    if they want ...

    i know you're not saying that white women
    aren't welcome here, on this site
    but if someone posted the same peace
    and was talking about homosexuals
    instead of white women
    i'd say this same thing

    for they too are welcome here

    i hope you can feel me Sis

    :heart:

    YeshuJah,
    I'm glad you could understand the point I was trying to make. I was just speaking my heart.

    Destee,
    Point taken :)

    I feel the emotion in this piece here. I have two white gurlfriends who are madd cool. They are just themselves and are very sincere and genuine people. No quams with them but....



    What absolutely kills me about SOME white gurls is not only do they attempt to emulate US but when they THINK got it...they try to flaunt that shnitt in our faces. Especially in front of the brothas (at least the ones who are impressed with gurlfriend's little act)

    They have to try extremely hard to be like us.

    I/we/ are born this way and I LOVE ME SOME ME!!

    no silicone...no lip/*** injections...no tanning!!!!

    Afridancr, I totally know what you're saying. I used to work with this white girl who was married to a black man. She assumed this gave her a "black card" and somehow made her "down." She even tried to use the "n" word the way that we use it (never in my presence fortunately for her). Girlfriend felt that she was the authority on all things black culture too, all because of this corny brotha she was married to.

    She was the inspiration for this piece.

    HOLD UP THOUGH...

    Have you ever met a white woman who was married to pure Afrikan man???

    I don't think you want to...they are far worse than the wanna be's out there.

    I perform/work with Senegalese dancers/drummers (male) who are married to/shacking up with white women. These women think they're from Afrika and know more than you about the country b/c they're married to a native. This one woman tried to correct an afrikan dance instructor on how to play a rhythm...that woman almost lost her teeth!!!!!

    That shnitt burns me up. :mad:

    I feel you Grl

    But... I also see another side. Our black men give them the status of feeling/being better than us. My brother is a prime example, he has my sister-inlaw thinking she's desired by all black men, as most white women believe so. And yes, it's the O.J Simpsons, Bryant Gumbels and so many round the way black men who do this. But as Yeshujah stated we have many issues as a people and this is one of the many results of an oppressed people.
    I agree love is love regardless of color, but when you say I'm with that person, because my own black women won't/refuses to treat me right. This is just an excuse. stand tall and say I'm with her because, I love her.

    Afr, I feel you. I love our full lips(which they call French lips), many shades of color and many texture of hair. But most of all I love our ability to continue to SURVIVE/PERSEVERE.

    BTW, Nappy, I love your avatar.

    MadLove:heart: 2 a sistah, Coco
