You worry about being set back 50 years. Clearly you don't know how much better off women were back then. Most were able to stay home. Were devoted mothers and wives. Supported their husbands, raised their children to have a solid moral compass and lived successful lives. What's wrong with that? 

You worry so about a time that was a great time in American history. Look at the facts of that time. Blacks owned their own businesses, most were married and raising respectable families. Now, the marriage rate is down and many black children are raised in single parent homes. Often the home of their grandmother. That is, the ones that aren't aborted! ...

As for being racist, not so. Merely stating facts. Facts that CAN NOT be disputed. Especially in light of the fact that the founder of Planned Parenthood stating very clearly that the objective was to "control the population of undesirables". Statistically, more abortions are had by women of color than whites. Statistically, more black children are raised in single-parent homes. You can not argue with that. It's not something I've made up. It is what it is.


  I give you my word, I've never wanted to kick someone in the face so badly in my life.


But is she lying about this though? I understand why people would be mad because it's crude as hell to say that the way she did, but if someone on BHM says those same facts, they would get a cosign. Is it only because they're black? The truth is the truth no matter who it comes from. How they say it may be wrong. White people got their own crud to face( but they don't acknowledge) the same way any other race does. I would have just thrown the crud back in her face. I don't like it when whites compare black and lgbt rights as the same thing and I would have called her on that too.

Yes ma'am Pam, it was. She bopped her ass right on outta her lane when she brought it up unprovoked anyway. 
Call me what you will, but I don't need a white person to 'show me the facts' when they're clearly bigoted anyway. I'm just like "mayne, ain't chit you gotta show me."
Why did black people have to come up in the conversation in the first place is my whole point. 
In the context of the entire covo, she looked like a rambling racist jackass, real talk.



I agree. I don't get why she felt the need to bring up blacks... maybe she just had an itch to say something about blacks that day and being behind the computer screen just makes it easier.

Yall really think women were better off 50 years ago? It wasn't about being ABLE to stay at home, but the fact there was little options to do otherwise. Many black women weren't able to stay at home because they were working at the homes of the white women  who did have that privilege. Yes some supported their husbands and raised good kids and some had sh!tty relationships and raised piss poor kids as well. Folks like to act like these Aholes came from pods.

That fantasy of Leave it to Beaver runs deep in the memories of many despite the fact that a majority never lived that way. I get annoyed fast when white folk try to shame black women for having abortions but then shame them for having kids out of wedloc. The simplistic idea of what lead to blk ppl being in the position theyre in now is what shines a magnifying glass on the disconnect of being black vs being white.

I can understand why you're upset by it, Momei. Not only did the comment come out of nowhere, but she was obviously ignoring the high levels of violence towards black people, as well as the legally mandated segregation, that characterizes American society of 50 years ago. 

Likewise, she's ignoring the fact that these statistics are the way they are currently because of "white moderates" like herself, who say one thing in an attempt to be "helpful," but continue to hold up institutions that tear us down, and tear down institutions that want to help.

she aint say nothing that bad really. 

i don't think she's looking at the civil rights movements, and inequality in the workplace and otherwise per say, she's mainly looking at the standard of living for the usual middle class family in that era. what she said was rather short-sighted, but not automatically wrong.
