I have noticed that Black women are being attacked, and the attacks are constant, vicious and abusive. I don't really know what we done to deserve this. We are attacked, because if we are educated and speak and act polished. We are told that we are not black enough, we are attacked because we are marrying men from different races. We are called sellouts and traitors. We are attacked because instead of concentrating on what white women do and focusing to them, because there are hardly any black woman on main stream magazine covers, very few are in the film industry, instead we have magazines and blogs to address our needs. We are setting up our own film industry. We put our money, in our own projects. We are being accused of white women protectionism and we forget what Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King did for us, so that we can enjoy the freedom, we have now. We have less privilege than white women and why are we protecting them and that is why few white men approach us, because they don't consider us sexy.
Usher is married and has a lovely wife Tameka, she is being attacked, because she is not pretty enough for him, and she is too dark. We are being attacked for all the ills of the black community. We are being attacked because we are loud mouth, ghetto and fat and that is why black men don't want us. We are attacked because some hip hop songs call us hos and bitches. We are attacked because we are not quite is considered beautiful. Black models find it harder to get work. It seems to be, it is in a lot of peoples interest, to have the pity party for the black woman. 'Poor black women', their men don't want them, other men from other groups don't want them. People are looking for the 'angry black woman'. Her life is full of hardship and toil.
Let us look at the reality of things, even though 70% of black women are single, there is 60% of black men who is single also. Black women are twice as likely to be educated up to degree level and beyond than white women. In the blog world, I have meet many black women, who are married to non-black men, so saying that non-black men don't find black women attractive, is a big lie. Also black men who are married to black women and raising wonderful children. Black women are most likely to have start their own businesses. The majority of black women are taking the lives in their hands and living it to the full. They are breaking out of their mental chains and in order to have change, they must make changes themselves. They have the anointing of David, Daniel, Debra, Abigail, Solomon and Moses. They have been made for a time like this. Inspirational women of our time are Bessie Coleman, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Diane Abbott MP (Memberof Parliament, UK), Baroness of Scotland, member of the UK cabinet. Nyamko Sabuni, Government minister for Integration and Gender Equality Swedish MP, Shaznay Lewis, lead singer and song writer of the group 'All Saints'. Estelle felt that her record company was not promoting her properly, she met Kanye West and asked him to get in touch with John Legend and the rest is history, American Boy was a big hit in UK and USA. Jill Scott, Malorie Blackman, Leslie Esdaile-Banks, Sandra Kitt, Lisa Price owner of Carol's daughter, Anita Grant, she had her own on-line beauty business and my list would go on and on. Cupcake Brown, came from a terrible background of sexual abuse and prostitution from a very young age, she was a gang member and an alcoholic, she became a successful lawyer and now she is a motivational speaker and engaged to be married. The reason for these attacks, is because black women realise their self worth, they realise that they are beautiful women, they have started to celebrate their beauty. They can anything, they want to be, whatever they set their minds to. The sky's the limit. So they are getting on with their lives, their husbands, children and their passions and they are happy. They will always be the angry ones, the bitter ones, but the majority are a success. That is why it is so scary to some angry black men, some angry black women, some angry white women and some angry white men. The best revenge on your enemies is success and your enemies will talk about you day and night, because they can't sleep at night, and you can, because as Proverbs 10:22 states you have the blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it.
