As we know most of our missing black men are incarcerated, dead, in gangs, or with women outside their race. Let's talk about the latter since many dudes don't wanna go there. I will. Lately, I've been observing young black life-since the death of Prince...more acutely. Maybe cuz I like to find answers to why we as a people behave the way we do when we KNOW we are not liked or wanted in this country. It would seem it would be MORE solidarity among us. That's doesn't happen unless the po po kills one of us then it's damn near a city riot. But I feel and have always felt that many of our black people continue to or deliberately MISS the point. Could be why so many black men are missing. And the insult to black cultural is when black men in public says that white women are much better than black women. Then the fuming really begins. Cuz what black woman wants to hear that in front of EVERYBODY? And to deflect? We wanna say this and that is happening but we refuse to say WHY it's happening or what's really bothering us. Maybe that's because many of us don't want to be accountable for our own actions toward each other. Instead of facing the real truth? We turn and blame massa. When it wasn't massa calling me a bitch just cuz I turned my car unexpectedly without giving a signal. Or when I don't feel like being preyed on so I ignore you...and I gotta be a bitch. Or maybe I wanna know why our young black men slobbering over brainless white whores while calling a black woman a bitch on video or in the black community. Cuz she IS the same bitch who was marching for your dumb stupid ass just the other day. I don't understand that. Am I the only ONE "missing" something?
*A lot of people have many different reasons for ending up in an Interracial relationships. Some Black men seek them out exclusively...*COUGH* *COUGH* My TWO Brother in laws *COUGH* *COUGH*. From my observations and personal experiences, women of other races approach brothers quite often. I can recall numerous times being asked to dance at clubs/bars/parties by women of other races while Sisters were just standing around...often after rejecting a few brothers that asked them to dance or just trying to say 'hello'. Did those sisters go to that place just to reject men? 'bust some balls' ???...so to speak. Who knows? Many Sisters are unapproachable (fact)...some even claim that any man talking to them in public is 'Street Harassing' them. With that being the case, I actually told my teen and early 20's cousins/nephews to avoid dating until the society changes a little or unless a women directly asks you out or for a number. No sense being the next falsely accused rape suspect. It's bad enough being a Black man (as the article above has shown). ...but that's just my perspective. That 'un-approachability' often kills potential relationships before they can even start. That's not to say that a Sister should interact with every brother, everyday, but she should be cognizant that some of those brothers could have been a potential life partner.
