@Rou WELL IMO, this is a reason I don't like the military for WOMEN.. (just my opinion) its a 'GUYS WORLD' even if we could fight like them when we fly planes, etc.

I think guys look cuter in uniforms, even if the women's uniforms are nice, women are rarely uniform when they dress...LOL ..there was an old joke about women wearing the same dress, and the other one changed their clothes...LOL

@Justme65 I don't think she should play NINA SIMONE .. its WAY OFF.. there should be a 'Nubian type' actress to play her (I know they are out there!). It reminds me of the movie THE WIZ. I have seen the play, and in the play they had the ORIGINAL 14 year old girl playing Dorothy. It was FANTASTIC. Later, when they made THE WIZ a movie, they had 35 year old DIANA ROSS playing Dorothy, being a schoolteacher?! it totally RUINED the movie. Why did they DO THAT? couldn't they find another black actress to play her, or even use the same girl that was in the play?

I 'second' that!.. since  FEMALE could be ANYTHING.. a black female could be a CAT, etc.

This stuff seemed to have started in the 1980s and is part of the sc/RAP culture.

I've heard an elderly woman say--years ago, before the 1980s: "if women stopped being LADIES, they WILL end up being FEMALES"..

I've seen Jane Fonda on THE DOCTORS lately. Dr. Rachelle said it would be good for women to be LADIES, and it got Jane a little upset and she said WOMEN..

I never did like this movie. I watched the original in 1970 when I was 12. I knew what her baby was--the antichrist, which means the white hubby was never the baby's father.. could it be slightly.. and 'okeydoke'?..LOL

other than that. I like Ms. Saldana

hmmm, I think there is 'cattiness' afoot with this narrator --I hated it when the BW came to the BM and he turned her 'away'--.  Perhaps,  many WW especially the 'queen bees'  want BW to feel bad, but even they know that stats on bW marriages when they marry out to good men of other cultures.

They seem to have the same mindset as other immigrants from other countries. They struggle hard in their country to even get by, then come to the US when the weight is not on them and they automatically succeed. Also, the 2 parent household in the black community was a reality until the late 1960s and the drug culture started becoming popular--I've seen it happen.

the SHIP SLOP culture is what is destroying the black family as a rule! and everything it contains. Even if it didn't start until the late 1970s. I actually wish they would bring back the old cowboy theme stuff. My parent  and their friends were into it and' 'I love a guy in a Stetson..'

That is really GOOD NEWS.

If WW and AW want to be with us, they need to just come forward, unless they believe all of the stupid stereotypes.

I believe black women need to take a MEDIA FAST..! BTW, I've heard that many women under 50 may have grown up on TV even more than people over 50. This was when couples started separating  and extended family started getting away from each other (it may have been for the best, BUT it left many kids alone in the afternoon/evening)  that's it. Learn to play an instrument, ride a horse, surf, ANYTHING but TV, internet (unless for work) smartphone, BUT still go on BBW...LOL

back in the day, it was 'generally' a macho thing to say to each other (although not as bad as today)==guy to guy. In fact all guys who were ethnic used slurs. Irish would call each other paddy, Italians, dago, etc. ( I knew this because my dad used to work with them and told me)

Although DL Hughley is a very anti BW comedian. I've heard him on Leno's show and it was so bad, Leno had to go to a station break. Other groups see how they treat BW.

Welll, if you think about it, part of this comes from the white community amongst themselves. Its HAIR with them. The GUY has dark hair and the GIRL has the Blonde hair, even in old Europe's GRIMMS fairy tales. Where there is a blond, she is favored over the brunette (the brunette seems to be the 'bad one' and the blond is 'pure'==it may come from how young WW are blonde but turn ash later, and a form of 'innocence'. With us though, the lightskin ones comes from being too close to massa, (nieces, daughters cousins) and is an 'imitation high class' WW.

I know we don't all look alike, BUT some of us, have a common 'look'. I for one, when younger, thought to be someone else.

There was a few BLACK ladies who thought I was a daughter of this black family who owned a Market.

I didn't think so UNTIL I met the girl. She looked more like me than my sister, but was 6' tall.

She has the same skin tone, same larger head LOL, etc.

BTW, have you heard about Lawrence Fishburne was angry because someone confused him with another actor? (forgot who) but they had a different skin shade, AND had the same BUILD.

this is the problem..

Sometimes, a kid needs a spanking but the parent needs to be CALM--other times kids need different kinds of talking to; some kids don't need as much, or no spanking, but in the BC, they were ALWAYS EAGER to use the belt.....too much...

I've also heard that many BW back in the day didn't want to marry dark skinned BM as well.

If a BW was from a medium toned family, people in her family would discourage it simply because if she had a daughter, the girl will have problems with the little girls hair. Well, its in the book THE COLOR COMPLEX

yes, many BM are being threatened by this website, and Christelyn! well... probably not many, perhaps, David Carroll and Tommy Sotomayor among others...even some NBABM-W as well.

 A woman who called his show, telling him that she didn't want dark babies and so she married a WM.. she brought up the colorism that she grew up with

Now come to think of it, it could be a 'PLANT'. Someone called his show pretending to do this; to make BW look bad...if she was real.. I feel VERY SORRY for her! I wish she would find this website for starters.

showing arms and legs within reason is the most feminine (skirts at knee length or just below).. this is why I HATE TATTOOS on girls, period. Since women don't grow BODY HAIR... the look seems very 'OFF' to me. Arm tats on women looks like 'body hair' from a distance.

I LOVE SUNDRESSES.. and even though I am in Nor CA, its very rare to see women in them; they always seem to just wear shorts, or short-shorts.

according to the article.. I don't know if the guys pulling the girls on the dance floor is black or white. Anyhow, it seems to be a reason why WW dye their hair blond, even though the color doesn't do much for them

only blonds who are 'ash' look the best when dyed .IMO

the ash color is the color they changed to when they were either  8 or 13.

Its true, that lots of BM of today don't know how to 'take the lead' and care for their women; but some WM are also starting to become like this, simply because they haven't seen their moms or other women in the family married to good 'reliable' men.

I notice we are a people of EXTREMES===either we are too lenient, when we should be more aware of situations, and training our kids, OR TOO EXTREME AND ABUSIVE. This is what i've noticed about some in the black community ever since i was a little girl. I've never understood it though but someone told me that they were raised this way so they wouldnt get too 'uppity'. Many of us were raised in the south.BTW, SOMEONE NEEDS TO CLOSE DOWN WSHH...its just turning into another 'minstrel show' which took us ages to get rid of
