I say name and shame the people threatening. Also remember YOU HAVE POWER TOO! When you see a threatening comment, hover over the person's name and you will see a little "x" appear in the upper right hand corner. This is an option to hide the comment, but when you click on it, it will give you an option to report the person.


Have you gotten in contact with Facebook? Considering your status as an author and business woman you have a good chance of fighting them. Not saying you're gonna get to talk to Zuckerberg, but Facebook probably doesn't want to lose your business.

@Tempaccount Yeah I've already said before I can go to any Native American reservation and see half Black half Native kids with no fathers. One Navajo woman said that to me outright that the Black fathers don't stay. Black men already have a reputation up there. Almost all my Native friends that have mixed Black children don't have the fathers around. Only one does, and he's a an old-school Black man who is a great father. I see way too many mixed Black kids in general to know that the problem is with the men who think they know what they want but they really don't. When the women start to ask them for more committment and to take more responsibility, they bounce.

I think he should make a statement soon. Does he have to curse them out, no but a statement of support for FKA to his fans would at least let people know his stance. I think defending and standing up against racism is really important in interracial relationships, and White men have the most social power in this society to address that. Why wouldn't you want to protect the one you love? Sure choose your battles, but this one is fairly easy.

@LilaLeslie Lol I asked my my non Black male friends what actions a woman does that stop a man from being a man and they were confused. The conversation was hilarious, one of them was like "Well, like in the bedroom..." haha, I had to cut him off because he totally didn't understand the question. That concept doesn't occur to them, the same way when I have discussions about love and marriage with them they don't start spouting off nonsense about being submissive and cooking and cleaning.

@The Working Home Keeper @Fae Quince I make sure I tell all the little Black girls in my circle they are beautiful and then I explicitly point out a physical feature that is beautiful (usually hair, because they don't get told it's beautiful enough.) I know I'm going up against a mountain of media that tells them they are not beautiful which is why I don't feel like it's a problem to say it. I never got told I was beautiful and for a long time I believed I was ugly.

To be honest that is one of the reasons why I hesitated dating Asian men in the past. I know there are plenty of Asian men who are fine with dating interracially but so often the families disagree. Family is really important to me and I couldn't imagine having a children with a man whose parents want nothing to do with them. I've seen it and it's very sad. I'm glad his mom and dad accept her.

@ole'skool Nope. It depends on the state. For non-traffic/non-driving stops a person may refuse to show ID and totally be in their legal rights to do so. In Arizona, I am required to carry ID at all times and show a police officer on request. In California I would not be required to do so. I think what's needed is to revisit the law, because many people are confused about what to do. If police believe that their jobs are easier when they can stop people for ID then they should petition to have the law changed in their state. As it stands now, things are murky and is ripe for abuse of power by cops.

Some of these girls are looking so hot I can't compete, it's wonderful to see.

@BeautyIAM At least in my case I've had to spend a good part of my growing years stifling it because the Black men and boys in my neighborhood were so aggressive. I suspect a lot of Black women and girls are growing up in neighborhoods where they have to do the same. Not to mention the unaddressed sexual abuse that goes on.

Setting standards early is the best thing that you can do for a young girl. It's not a surefire way but it definitely helps. I knew growing that I could never bring home a guy wearing a white tee and saggy jeans, no matter what the race. No. Frakkin. Way. Heck, it was a struggle for my parents when I was dating a guy that didn't have a college degree. I could also look to my parents' relationship and see what the guy should bring to the table. Be explicit in the good qualities that a man should have. Everyone has their ups and downs in dating, but my struggles were definitely a lot milder than a lot of my peers. I feel sad that a lot of Black girls do not have this guidance.

@_Toni_   I've been following the BWE movement since it first came out and I have seen a very noticeable shift in attitudes in Black women. BWE ideas have no entered the sphere of mainstream Black female thought. It's incredible. Before you'd get a cacophony of "Nothing but a Black man", now you more women are saying "We support them, but they don't support us". It's amazing when I look at the comment section now on some articles. I can't believe how the view has shifted toward BWE. Personally, I thought it'd take a little bit longer to be so prevalent!

This question sounds a bit suspicious. This co-parenting nonsense was brought up some time ago on two other popular websites for Black women. The Swedish argument has been brought up over there as well.
