The amount of disdain some women on this blog have towards non-black; and especially white women honestly makes me uncomfortable. You want to know the real reason why I think people on here are so gleeful in hanging this woman out to dry? Schadenfreude. It seems to them, non-black women have, it ALL, and when they see a white woman finally, *FINALLY* being dragged through the mud. It puts a little song in their heart, and a "Well maybe if she was pretty like US, her husband wouldn't have left her :D " Adding insult to injury to a person whose already down? Disgraceful.
'There was a whole post dedicated to trying let bw know, that if you marry wm you might have a white MIL or SIL.'
"Yeah, being with a white guy is great, the only downside is that you may have to deal with his white cunt mom or sister UGH."
I think I may be done with BWE blogs anyway. I discovered them years ago, and all they've done is conditioned me into seeing everything into Us vs. Them, Black women vs. The World. I never thought that being a bw was considered a bad thing until I started reading these blogs. I agree with the original premise, but all these issues and issues and ISSUES people seem to have. I think it's time to ween myself off, and get on with my life.
Im done here. It was nice talking to you Eugenia, Zindzi, Brenda, I hope you all have a nice life :)
Off to Tumblr I go~
Seriously, Im starting to wonder what cruel words these people would sling at MY grandma if given the chance. My nana's well into her 80's, and she looks every bit of it. I suppose they'd be shocked and appalled that *GASP* my frumpy old grandma is still married to her husband after 50 sum odd years, and they still get along fine (sometimes). I wonder if some people here have ever seen how a normal marriage plays out in reality, or if they learn everything about it from movies and television programs and fast forward past the 'getting old together' part.
I don't believe you, Toni. I really just don't believe you, and thats the bottom line. You may feel the same way despite the race of the people involved, and thats very admirable of you, I commend you for it. But you'd have to be either very naive, or just wilfully ignorant to think that there aren't women on here who have a strong Us vs. Them attitude in regards to other races of women. You don't see it? RACE WOULD CHANGE IT, TONI. What Im trying to prove is the hypocrisy, and the double standard that some women in these comment have.
A white woman get's cheated on: "HAHAHAHA! FRUMPY OLD COW SHOULD'VE SHOPPED AT H&M!! PUT DOWN THE TWANKIES YOU FAT PRUNE FACED BITCH HAHAHAHAHAHA "
A black woman gets cheated on: "The world is an abyss...everyone hates us...we can never get a break...po' old black wimmin dont stand a chance in this cruel world of ours...no one has it harder than us *crying forever* "
Whatever, you don't want to acknowledge the double standard, and pretend it doesn't exist, I don't care.
Are you ready for some real shit? *clears throat* If PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA CHEATED ON MICHELLE. Hold up, imma let you soak that in for a minute.
If our President...cheated on our first lady...with a YOUNGER, SLIMMER, 'WHITER' woman, and then someone turned around and said 'well, maybe if Michelle didn't look so manly, he wouldn't have cheated on her'. On a scale of 1 to Apocalypse how cool do you think people here would be about that, and would they co sign with that person?
Seriously, what the hell is so wrong with her?
Im seriously trying to figure out why this woman's such a 'HORRIBLE UGLY BEAST!!!11' in the eyes of some people here. She looks like a regular old lady to me. I mean she aint gonna be queen of the Spring Jubilee, but neither is he.
double post. Please excuse it.
Welp, I see that Im going to be the one who takes it there.
I really do wonder, in this space, if Mrs. Petraeus were a BLACK woman, would all of you co-signing this feel the same way. If a black woman was married to a high ranking military officer, and had been with her husband for over 30 years, bore him children, raised them, and was especially a good wife to him, and then out of the blue he cheats on her with a White/ Latina / or Asian woman almost half her age, and made her the laughing stock of the nation. I wonder how many of you would be quick with the "WELL MAYBE IF SHE WEREN'T SUCH A FRUMPY OLD BITCH HAHAHAHAHAHA..."
Huh. I wonder.
I was going to write a long comment in response to this post. But I don't feel like it. Besides, this meme pretty much sums up how I feel right now.

Lol! THIS freakin video. They had WAY too much fun doing that. The original by Martha Reeves is still reigns supreme, but I don't hate that version 'nearly' as much as every else seems to haha.
Apparently, they had a "long and illustrious love affair."
All i can say is, pics please!
6 months, 1 week ago on Ever Wonder Who the Inspiration Was for Mick Jagger's "Brown Sugar?"
"Sounds like he was more interested in bedding a black woman than loving one."
I think he felt that way about all women, not just black women. Mick was notorious for wanting to bed anything that would stay still long enough. I don't think he's ever fully settled down. He's been divorced like, 30 times.
@Renaissanceman @KingsDaughter @Law Wanxi
Nah, I don't find the lyrics offensive at all. The Stones were no bullshit, they said whatever they liked, and apologized to no one. I can respect that. Besides, Mick & Keith had a DEEP love/appreciation for black American culture and music.
Thats why in my opinion the Stones were (and still are) far superior to the Beatles (dodges rotten tomatoes). To me, the Beatles were too...pristine, too clean, almost to a fault. They had a very polished sound, very "safe" whereas the Stones were down and dirty. A good Stones song can make me want to cry, fuck, and dance all at the same time!
Im not really offended by Some Girls either; "Black girls wanna get fucked all night" But...I *DO* wanna get fucked all night. Kidding (kinda...)! But seriously, I don't get why that one's offensive. I guess, it makes black girls seem over-sexual? Although, tbh I don't get why being sexual is a bad thing. But thats just me.
anyway; as far as who Mick should've ended up with.I still think he and Keith had chemistry, there was some sexual tension going on there.
Mick and Bowie would've made a nice couple too tbh.
TMI time: I started my period this morning. So there will be no sex.
My boyfriend and me are just gonna chill tonight. Order some Thai, lounge in, watch some Doctor Who, and maybe put myself in a Advil induced coma. I've got half a tub of black cherry & a full tub of reese's ice cream in the ice box. So there's that.
Have a good rest of the night everyone, I know I will. Laters.

"The main problem is that a lot of these young girls have low self-esteem and are brainwashed to believe the lie that they must only accept the inferior options presented before them. Once they are made aware that they have choices, they will make better decisions."
There it is, folks. The uncomfortable truth, the very heart and soul of the problem.
As Charlie once said; "We accept the love we think we deserve," and the sad truth is too many black women in their heart of hearts just don't think they're worth the effort.
The end goal to BWE in my opinion is not "getting a man." its seeing yourself as a human being. Its about being content with yourself. Its about putting your needs as a woman first, and refusing to become a victim of circumstance, its about not needing or wanting other people's pity or coddling. Its about knowing what you want out of life, and going for it, and DAMN what other people think. Im a womanist, and Im for the empowerment of ALL women. No one should settle for ketchup on crackers when they can have grilled cheese ( or 'Filet Mignon' if you're a fancy pants)
Also, I feel the need to say that if you have low self esteem, and are constantly choosing DBR black men. You're probably gonna choose a DRB white man.
I don't think the conversation should focus on telling black women to get with a white guy. As 'getting with a white guy' wont solve anything if the boy's a piece of crap.
7 months ago on "You Chose Him!" But Really, If You're Living in the Hood, What Choice Do You REALLY Have?
First of all, Im not a man. I just believe in empowerment of black women, not coddling.
'The women should be able to pick among the amazing men that are supported through the efforts of other amazing men.'
You want to prepare young black girls for how things 'should' be. Not how things actually are. This aint a frickin Disney movie, in the real world young women are going to come face to face everyday with dirt bags who want nothing more than to take advantage of them, and they need to be PREPARED, they need to truly understand that men like this aren't going anywhere just because we don't like them, but its ok because they're not the only option. Covering your ears and going "LALALALALALA THINGS SHOULD BE DIFFERENT, THINGS SHOULD BE DIFFERENT" changes nothing, and helps no one. YES things SHOULD be different. Alot of things in this world should be different. But the cold hard fact is, thing's aren't different, and you can either hide from that, or embrace it and use that knowledge to empower yourself. Either way it doesn't change the reality.
Nothing you do or say can change a man if he doesn't want to be changed. You don't have that power, but you have the power to change yourself, you can protect yourself. Thats what BWE is all about aint it? Empowering yourself so that you dont become a victim? Or is the message, absolve yourself of all responsibility because thats just the way it is, and 'things should be better.' "US WOMENZ" need to take back control of our lives, STAND UP, and stop allowing ourselves to become victims.
'I want to say society should make better men. '
Society DOES make better men. Plenty of better men, its the woman's own responsibility to pick one and not some low life.
