Alright Chinelo lets talk about it..
I think we both agree that African people have been deeply psychologically affected by the
enslavement, brutality and subjugation by Europeans.. and the effects are laced in the folkways
of black people..
so let me ask you this,
"to what degree do you think that same phenomena has affected the way we look
and deal with our women sexually?"
When I look at these pictures, my instinctual self is intrigued by the feminine figure.. My
conscious mind, however, which is locked in a perpetual loop of applying my accumulated
perspective to what I see, recognizes the indignity of seeing our women objectified in a way that
reeks of European perversion. Our women are beautiful.. but they are also our daughters.. our
sisters.. and what man would want to see his daughter rendered in this way? as nothing more
than an object of sexual desire.. ?
Our women are beautiful in ways far beyond the size and shape of their body parts.. their
beauty emanates from within and it reaches back to the beginning of time.. back to our
homeland.. back before contact with the West.. And it seems to me that if we are going to undo
the damage done to us, we have to apply our knowledge to every part of our culture.. not just
the parts we don't like.. but also the parts that we do.. like most these pictures.. Think about it...
..and listen, I'm the number 1 fan of the female figure..
come on Chinelo.. let's not just be conscious when it comes to the politics of liberation .. and identity.. and history.. let's take it all the way..
big up on this and looking at it from a bigger picture as well
Hello brutha,I'm not in total disagreement with you,but I'm just offering another view of this. Aren't we,the men,looking at this from a man's perspective? When we talk about sexual objectification and its ramifications we only refer to women. Men are sexually objectified everyday in the media. I once saw a poster in a clothing store,and in the men underwear section, they where featuring a huge black man with an athletic body who was naked except for the underwear he was wearing. The underwear distinctively shows off his huge manhood. What a big sexual objectification this is with a black man. It can also be seen as racist where a black man is being objectified for his body and penis. Do you remember the Old spice deodorant commercials?
