Open Thread: Hotep-Dude’s Idea of a Legit Harem….You Know,…

This photo and subsequent caption came along my Facebook feed, and not the first time–I’ve seen lots of propaganda of late advocating polygyny–or, er–polygamy, which basically means the same thing. My first thought is, what benefit is this to black women, who out-educate, out-earn, and outnumber marriageable black men? Read the caption: POLYGYNY……. This is […]
