This was an interesting discussion.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I'd love to see the rest of the discussion. We often overlook the root cause of some of the things that happen in our communities. When you don't know your history you're bound to repeat past mistakes. And, black folks rarely know how some of the nonsense that's become commonplace started in the first place. Thanks for posting this discussion, Jaycee.

Very interesting indeed.
I read in your 'about me' section that you love spoken word! Finally! Someone else who shares my love for spoken word. I can tell I'll like your blog already!

I have never considered slavery as a reason for why Black women are sometimes objectified by our men. That's an interesting perspective in some cases. But we also need to realize that not ALL Black men are doing this. How do we account for some who have chosen to love and cherish their women?
