Sometimes I look at the collective zeitgeist of black women in social media and I’m encouraged. Finally, FINALLY critical thinking is occurring and important questions like “what’s really in this for me?” are being asked.
And then I see this sh*t and wonder how far we truly have come. Three women have recently volunteered to throw themselves on the train tracks for their men for love, and just leaves me speechless.
Marie Holmes won $188 million in Powerball, and her poor choices show that poverty is more than a lack of money in your bank account, it’s a mentality. She recently spent $9 million to bail out her drug-dealing boyfriend twice, still lives in a trailer, and has been suspected of drug dealing herself. Why on earth would a woman who won nearly 200 million dollars need to involve herself and her children in such a lifestyle, especially when she could easily afford otherwise? Why would you willingly put your children and yourself in harm’s way and face financial ruin for some Ashy Larry? And when challenged, she shows how not-smart she really is, and then brings God into it in a ploy to get people to STFU:
“What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all money and not how I spend mine this is benefiting Y’all how? And no he’s no drug dealer or user but who are Y’all to judge anybody? I will definitely pray for Y’all because it’s much need…they talked about Jesus so I’m not surprised Y’all are talking about me but be blessed though.”
The only person in need of prayer is you, Marie. You need to pray God grants you some more brains. And I’ll pray that you won’t spend all your kid’s inheritance on bailing out Ashy Larry.
Lark, I really loved you as the adorable “Lisa Turtle” in Saved By the Bell, but my, how far you have fallen. Your marriage to felon, Jimmy Green, is so beneath your potential, and even your mother says so.
But we can’t completely blame her, because her poor choices may be due in part to her mental illness. What is unfortunate is that Lark seems to be in complete denial that this might have influenced her decision to marry Jimmy.
A former *cough* member of the Bloods, a murderous gang that originated in South Central Los Angeles, Jimmy is bilking Lark’s resources for his upcoming…album. >.>
Jaelyn Delshaun Young
Jaelyn Delshaun Young recently married Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla, converted to Islam and summarily decided to spend her honeymoon in Turkey to assist the terrorist organization, ISIS. Jaelyn, the daughter of a police officer, shrugged off a promising life as a wife and chemist to work together with her new husband in order to assist a murderous organization that kills with impunity and has utter contempt for women, whom they deem beneath them. Oh, and did we mention that ISIS captures women and children, examines them like cattle, and sells them into slavery, in which the “owners” are allowed to rape and beat them, as long as it’s not on the face? As an African American woman who is most likely a descendant of slavery, how she could rationalize joining a group shamelessly still engaging in this practice is the ultimate betrayal of women of all races, colors and creeds. Muhammad is a the son of an Imam a Muslim leader of Islamic prayer services.
