Black Women's Empowerment

Fan Letter: Black Women are FINALLY Waking Up


Mark my words–the hateful men of You Tube to make their money degrading black women will soon see their reckoning. 

Hi Christelyn. My name is Paula. I wanted to share my story on how I discovered your website. I discovered your website by accident over a year ago. I was doing research on how scientists have discovered several years ago that the human family started in Africa and how the first woman was most likely black. And at the same time I was looking for a particular novel about a interracial relationship between a non-black man and a black woman set at the turn-of-the-century.

As I was doing the research I noticed when I would go on Google a list of websites on black woman would show up and all of them were negative. And the majority of that was coming from black men who (which I know you are fully aware of) would make negative comments about black women and when I would go on the black women websites it was more of showing support for black men when on the other hand the black men would say nothing positive about the black women. I would almost find myself agreeing with what these black men were saying about us black women that we need to change our attitude, we need to get our act together if we want to be datable and married.

But I realize I was only hearing one side of the story. So as I was going through these list of websites I happen to fall upon the so called “Reverend” Jesse Lee Peterson and the interview that he had with you in regards to interracial relationships. That was how I discovered your website. As I listened to the interview it opened my eyes to how a majority of black men really think about black women. I listened to how that so-called “Reverend” was so rude and disrespectful to you and how his callers were very belligerent and hostile to you and what you stood for. But it didn’t hit me full force until I went on social media and I saw the barrage of…. I’m going to have to call it as it is because I’m coming from a Christian perspective: straight up demonic, evil, wicked comments coming from a majority of these black men who hate & degrade us, their own women and girls!!! And sadly how some Black women agree & support them!!! can I say Stockholm Syndrome??!!! But I am happy to see that many black women and girls are waking up (I being one of them) to the reality of divesting not only in our education, business but relationships.

Women like you, Simone 56, Breuklen Blu, Trini girl, and the website for Black Women Only are opening so many black women and girls eyes and I want to say thank you keep it up. I know there are good black men out there I can testify to that: my own father has shown me what a real man is supposed to be to his own family; he’s been married to my mother for over 40 years when he took that marriage vow in sickness and in health he meant it, my mom has been battling with a severe mental illness for over 30 years til this day my father is still with her, he has never stepped out on her or cheated on her and when friends and family were telling him to leave her, he said no he would never want to see my mother end up in the streets & he would never want to see his children destroyed because he failed to protect, provide and guide for his wife and children. My father exemplifies what a real man is supposed to be to his family. And it is because of him me and my siblings are the men and women that we are today. Men like that especially within the so-called black community are very far and few between. And that is why I am definitely expanding my options in regards to dating men. Hey if a good godly black man comes along the way and he’s the real deal not like these jokers that you see on social media great but if a non-black man comes along great too I choose character over color. And on a lighter note, have you ever thought of becoming a comedian, a standup one on the side because girl I always look forward to those mean commentswith exception to the profanity you are sooooo hilarious I especially like the YouTube video with the Barbie dolls LOL and the “Sh– things that people say to black women; the video where you imitate certain characters within the so called black community LOLGod bless you keep up the good work you and your family are always in my prayers!
