Black men (collectively) aren’t being men

The gripes I’ve been hearing from black men about black women having too much attitude, being too demanding and too independent aren’t the fault of black women but the fact that black men aren’t being real men, taking responsibility for their actions and protecting their own women. Now we could talk all day about what being a man is, but I feel we’re all agreed that a man is supposed to protect provide and lead. If a man doesn’t do these things, he’s not a man. 

“The most disrespected person on the planet is the black woman”

Neely fuller

Black women are the most disrespected people on the planet because black men have allowed them to be. Many men of other races disrespect black women because they’ve learnt it by watching black men and don’t fear the consequences, now it’s bad enough being disrespected by anyone but worse when it comes from the people who are supposed to be holding you in high esteem and protecting you. Let me give you an example maybe you’re an Asian man, and you get disrespected by white women because of your looks, your skin or even your eyes you might feel a little down about it, but you can always be rest assured that your own women will still have love for you. Black women don’t have that assurance.

In truth when you’re a group of men who don’t protect your women and children you’re the laughing stock of the whole world, and who knows better about men protecting their women than the black man, who felt the heavy consequences of this every since slavery, most of it orchestred by the white woman or in the mind of the white men. Yes the same women black men flock to.

Why do you protect your own women? I’ve been asked this question way too many times. You protect them because if your women are demoralised the more likely they are to raise dysfunctional children who will continue the cycle of hate and resentment. The female transfers values and nurtures the next generation, whilst the male is the leader,the protecter and provider. 

When black guys publicly provide and protect for white women the black female rightfully feels hate and resentment towards black men, because that protection, was supposed to be given to her, she then views those black males as her enemies, she has no incentive to be loyal because he isn’t giving her any financial or emotional support, and she will then focus all her attention on her grievances with the black male whilst the black child sits and watches and the cycle continues.

The Interracial Con Game by Umoja 

​When Dove lies…

So much of the white-racial ego is invested in maintaining the feminine supremacy of the white female that every possible measure is utilized to marginalize and minimize the sexual allure of the dark-skinned Black woman. For example, in the mass media wherever one would ordinarily expect to see Black women…alongside Black men…we instead see biracial and virtually white women. 
We see this in ‘Black’ movies and white movies…in music videos and in TV adverts featuring a ‘Black’ couples. I could go on and on because the drive to maintain the impression of Black women as the least attractive goes on and on! But the mind has means of leaking its truth. 
For example, because the white male imagination is so sexually preoccupied with the Black female that it sees her allegedly ‘ugly’ characteristics such as her prominent posterior and mouth…and then sees fit to elevate white women with these very same cosmetically-created traits to global icon status. 
Why is this? 
One reason is that it finally gives white men the opportunity to publicly obsess over the very bodily and facial traits their fragile racial egos would not normally allow when these characteristics are attached to their real racial fixation…Black women! Another reason is that it gives white women the go-ahead to seek out these preferred Black female traits surgically without being accused of ‘wanting to be ‘Black’ because their direct reference points are white women such as Kim Kardashian and Angelina Jolie. 
Those who can recall the 1980s movie ‘10’ starring Bo Derek, know exactly what I mean here!
But my overriding point here is that if you examine white male behaviour closely…and that of white women…even closer…then you will see that their dark obsession…and the subject of their collective admiration and envy …is…in fact…the Black woman!
