Understanding The Myth Of The Angry Black Woman

by/C.SMITH

The Angry Black Woman is a phrase used to refer to a bitter, sassy, ill-mannered, African American woman with a quick temper and sharp tongue. The Angry Black Woman has become a stereotypical character in many television and movie portrayals. Come on – will you ever forget the hilarious, Angela, from the Why Did I Get Married movies?

The Angry Black Woman is also a stereotypical insult. Many black women are tagged with this title when they unapologetically express their own views or stand, often publicly, on the courage of their convictions. The media frequently portrays women who speak out as the Angry Black Woman. Here are a few reasons you must dig deeper than media portrayal and try to understand her.

  1. Anger is a human emotion. Moreover, it’s a normal human emotion and everyone is entitled to feel it and…

White Women Weaponize Black Men Against Black Women

Nothing but the truth.

Keep Ypsi Black

This is not at all to take away any accountability from the Black men who also willingly perpetuate this misogynoir.

Black men allow this, and should be held fully responsible. I am also not condemning interracial dating.

This is just to briefly address the white women who continue to get away with weaponizing Black men, and interracial dating against Black women.

It is not uncommon to witness white women in interracial relationships with Black men. And those Black men often have terribly problematic views about Black women.

That Black women are “too dark,” “too angry,” “too hostile,” “not feminine enough,” “too strong willed,” “nappy headed,” “ugly,” and their biggest complaint is that Black women won’t submit to them.

In comparison, white women are supposedly “trophy wives,” “beautiful,” “classy,” “agreeable,” “feminine,” “docile,” and they make better partners.

Many of these interracial relationships are built only with the intention to spite Black…

10 Examples of the Problem Known as ‘Toxic Masculinity’ That Already Happened

BROTHA WOLF

What is toxic masculinity?

Pretty much, it’s a social machination that promotes and encourages men to be dominant, sexually aggressive and emotionless. In other words, it’s where males cannot be allowed to be fully human. They are taught to be a finite organism enclosed in a tight space of expectations from their environment.

But of course this has devastating consequences. Toxic masculinity is like the fuel within a nuclear reactor with a fragile ego casing. Any error or flaw inflicted on it will cause a meltdown harming and murdering other people including himself.

Toxic masculinity has a few names. Some refer it as patriarchy, hegemonic masculinity and hypermasculinity. In black and brown neighborhoods, we call it bitch-assness. In other areas, it’s called men’s activism, the manosphere or the alt-right movement. It links gun and weapon culture and women blaming in its matrix. And it rejects anyone outside of the tiny…

Are White people our psychological parents?

Diff'rent Strokes

I remember when I was younger there was the sitcom Different Strokes(1978-1986).  It starred Gary Coleman,Todd Bridges,Conrad Bain and Dana Plato.  Coleman and Bridges played two black brothers from Harlem. When their mother passed away they were adopted by white wealthy businessman Phillip Drummond. Even back then they were giving us the “white savior” propaganda. Hollywood is known for giving us this type of garbage.

Different Strokes was a huge success in the eighties. So of course Hollywood tried to duplicate it again.  They created the show Webster(1983-1989).  The show starred child actor Emmanuel Lewis. The plot was about a little black boy who lost his parents in a car crash.  They even used the same plot as Different Strokes.  They couldn’t even be creative and come up with a different storyline.  Don’t be fooled by these shows.  They were not just sweet and innocent sitcoms.  They had an agenda. It’s obvious…

Poem: “The Black Woman” by Marcus Garvey

African Blood Siblings

In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

“The man who will not fight for the protection of his wife and children is a coward and deserves to be ill treated. The man who takes his life in his hand and stands up for what he knows to be right will always command the respect of his enemy.” — John Edward Bruce

It was February 28, 1927 when Marcus Garvey published the below poem.  If nothing else, it’s a reminder to the Masculine Role as articulated by John Edward Bruce and referenced by myself (see “African Femininity and Masculinity.“)  The African Woman is the Mother of all Women.  The Mother of Beauty, the Mother of Health, the Mother of Wisdom.  All can refer to her as “Mother.”  And she is the African Man’s Wife.

There is Confusion of her Role and…
