Black men don't own their self-hate... because if they said what they truly believe out loud they would be forced to deal with how self-loathing it is
It's better to have the privilege of pretending that your love for something 'other' is not your hatred for something the 'same'
Oh my goodness Alias. My husband commented about this. (He teases me for coming on BHM, but I don't care!!!)
Anyway, he said that the black men that he knows who prefer white women are really twisted. He used 50Cent as an example.
Remember when 50 tried to kiss the white reporter? Can't recall her name. Anyway, she turned her head to avoid 50's kiss. My husband said some brothers at the gym were really going a little nuts about it and called the white girl a racist.
He said he noticed it was the brothers who were married to white women, or who only dated white women, who were making noise about what happened.
He said they were irrational and kept going on and on about white racism. He said they're really nuts because these same brothers wouldn't give a black woman the time of day.
The twist, according to my husband, is that they want whites to extend courtesies to black men, that they as black men won't extend to black women or other blacks. He thinks they're so full of self hate that they need the white woman to validate them even when the white woman has nothing to do with their real lives.
Weird. I never actually thought of this situation this way. Maybe it's a guy thing.
