Some say that the more natural of political alliances are between the black man and the white woman. The theory is because both of them have the same oppressor: White men. And in some cases they also share a common hatred: Black women. I never thought that I’d believe it unless I saw it with my own eyes, but I’ve seen situation after situation where white, self-proclaimed feminists have sided with black men on issues that have been in direct opposition to the well-being of black women.
You’ve seen it too: White feminists are down for the rappers that call black women whores, bitches, and essentially worthless. There are no feminist marches are mass bra burnings in support of black women who are routinely terrorized in neighborhoods overrun by thugs. White feminists stand in complete support with their increasingly teeth-grating “You Go Girl!” encouragement of black mothers with children born into fragmented families and absent fathers, who often are more exposed and vulnerable to violence, death and poverty. It is for these reasons and more, #blackpowerisforblackmen.
So knowing all this, I was STILL surprised when I saw on my timeline that once-upon-a-time-Hollywood-comedy-queen Roseanne Barr publicly aligned and encouraged a known black woman hater.
This man has publicly proclaimed that “black mothers are the worst mothers on the planet,” that light skinned black women are less bitter, more attractive, and easier to get along with than dark-skinned black women. Recently bumped of You Tube, this man produced a parody of pregnant black women called, “Bastard Machines.” Now, it doesn’t take but five minutes of research to know what this man is about, so I’ll not give Miss Barr a pass on this one:
Turns out Roseanne Barr is intending to run for president, and thinks that any black person with more than 70,000 followers is worth kissing up to, regardless how vile and destructive he or she is. And when a group of black women led by unapologetic womanist, Kola Boof tried to make her aware of her mistake, she proved that she really didn’t give a shit.
Huh?! So, according to Barr, black men who have been circumcised grow up to be sociopaths. Ummmkay.
What Barr doesn’t realize is that the fans of this rabid, woman hating black man are not people who vote. It’s people like me that she just spit and shat on that cast the votes come election time. And you, ally to my sworn enemy, are now mine.
Ladies, this and many other events have made it crystal clear that it is truly open season on black women, and we are the easiest, most vulnerable and least-risk-of-retaliation group that exists. You can do and say ANYTHING about black women, and openly endorse people who outright HATE you and nothing, I mean, nothing, will be done.
I wonder, how many fans of this rabid black-woman hater will now flood our blog and fan page to terrorize us for having the nerve to protest mistreatment. And I wonder how many folks will sit on their hands and watch.
