As do promiscuous women. She is not necessarily screwing everything that passes in front of her face. But she will never get the same credit you so willingly lavish on men who may pass up the occassional toothless hobo.
We can't even come to a concensus for what number of sexual partners and frequency of sexual activity makes one positively promiscuous. Any woman who's number of sexual partners is too high for your liking is promiscuous.
As usual, the Black woman is always the alpha and the omega of all the Black community's problems. If we really try perhaps we can come up with a few reasons for why the Black woman is completely and solely responsible for racism in this country. Christ. Yes, the Black woman's role is as the head of the childrearing, but she is not solely responsible (unless her partner is worthless). That is precisely why we continue to lament the lack of precense of Black fathers in the home. He is vital! He may not be as involved in all of the minute details, but children certainly learn from him and emulate him. We know the popular saying that girls marry men like their fathers (or spend their entire lives looking for a substitute) and we probably all know several women for whom this is true. You can't simply write off all male behavior when it comes to the health and perseverance of the Black family.
...and both the book and the movie, "Waiting to Exhale" promoted by Black women, trashed the Black male. Bar none, "Waiting to Exhale" is one of the most disgraceful books, movies, ever written by, and/or translated into a movie, by Black people.
The theme of "Waiting to Exhale" is very far from the reality of it. Just as surely as Black men have betrayed Black women, the same can be said, and/or worse, concerning the relationship between Black women and Black men. Just as surely as there are many good Black women around, the same can be said for Black men.
The "alpha and the omega", of all the Black communities problems, as depicted in "Waiting to Exhale", stereotyped the Black male as being worthless, uncouth, untrustworthy, lazy, etc., etc.
This being said there is more than enough blame to go both directions. Bottom line, Black people need to be more respectful of each other.
