Even to this day, with the systemic debilitating incarceration rates, and subsequent economic inequalities, we're faced with the same problems, only a 21st century version.

To the OP, hells yes the social programming we as a people received for centuries has resulted in long lasting devastating effects in our communities. Very good observation I might add!

I don't get how you still aren't understanding the point being made.

There is a parallel in how white slave masters used black women sexually and sired children with them while being married to white women. Black men back then didn't have any control over their own families and couldn't protect black women from being taken advantage of. Nowadays we have a 70% rate of out of wedlock births and an epidemic of fatherless children. Black women and children are still being seen as unworthy of love and support. Perhaps in black men's minds black women are ruined and are community property. They cannot see the value in us because throughout history we were never treated with respect.

Today many black men with a higher social status will end up married to white or other women. It's as if they think because of their accomplishments they are entitled to more than a common black woman and would be embarrassed to have one hanging on their arm as if she was some sort of a prize or mark of distinction.

The way black men treat black women today? As in elevating women of other races while treating us like scum? You think that is somehow correlated with the strong black men in the past who actually cared?

Explain.
