There’s more words and thoughts, but summary…
Black men judge black women for not doing enough. Never Giving enough, even when black women are being raped, bleeding, and dying at the hands of black men, But still saying black lives matter and marching.
Black women give their tears and it isn’t enough
Black women give their love and it isn’t enough
Black women give their lives and it isn’t enough
Black women raise children alone when black men go to prison because of police corruption.
Black women raise children in single mother households when black men are killed by cops, but don’t expect men to march when black women are killed.
Black women raise black orphans Because cops and jealous ex lovers murdered the mothers Of those orphans, but black men say black women Provoke the violence.
Black women work and own businesses to bring money to the community, But stay shamed for being an economic drag by being welfare queens
Black women try to raise the value of the community by pursuing education, But get called bourgie going to school outside the hood.
Black women learn to be strong by being tough enough to handle sexual assault at the hands of black men and white men, And know they’ll be told they were “asking for it”
Black women learn to take beatings from men leaders in our community and police Because there’s nobody who cares if black women find justice.
Black women embody survival in a world without allies.
Yet black men fall over themsleves to defend a white woman who “does more” for the community than real black women.
A white woman who gives lectures and teaches classes.
Black men would dare say a white woman in blackface giving lectures is true work, but a black woman being victimized but still showing up to hold it down at a rally for all black lives isn’t real work.
When black women don’t get a “real” education or job, they are ratchet hoes who don’t have high enough standards. They ruin the black community by having low standards and not respecting themsleves. When black women succeed and get an education and good job, she’s called too dominant and too aggressive and tears down the community by emasculating the black man.
Black women give the black community everything. Blood, sweat, tears, strength, hope, desire…
But you really believe a white woman in blackface giving a speech is the real work.
White women giving speeches. Not black women at rallies. Not black women fighting the system. Not black women running shelters, food drives, teaching in classrooms, handing out school supplies, raising their children, changing the world.
No. A white woman being paid to talk about her fake blackness is the real work.
Black men- Can you just admit you hate black women already?
