Yesterday, I visited one of my favorite blogs "Black Conscious Thought" written by Von. Von, can best be described as Dr. Angela Davis, channeling Eldridge Cleaver but filtered sometimes through Terry Mcmillian and Alice Walker. She re-touched on a post that she'd written earlier but that stirred up alot of controversy.
Here's the link: http://blackconsciousthought.blogspot.com/2010/11/for-my-critics-if-you-have-better.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Blackconsciousthought+%28Von%27s+Black+Consciousness%29
I quoted her stats and responded in kind "Fuck You!" Yeah, I went there! I went to the dark side. Why?
The Color Purple, Waiting to exhale, Diary of a Mad Black Woman and For Colored Girls not to mention every Keshia Cole, Fantasia, Mary J, Sunshine Anderson cut that ever got played. I'm am sick and tired of hearing how the Sisters is mad at Brothers and seeing it reflected in the mass media.
Sorry Sistahs, not to discount your anger but let's face it. There was a Brother or several Brothers that warned you against taking up with certain other Brothers. It's true ain't it?!! And you dated him anyway, you fucked him and in the aftermath you moved on to the next Brother until now you are embittered and angry.
Why didn't you listen to those "Good Black Men" then? Was it cause you had a few of them in the friend zone and felt that "They" just wanted to poison your mind against the "Bad Bro"? Come on BE honest.
Maybe it was because the "Bad Bro" had money, a nice car, had mad game, or was just devilishly handsome. And yeah, you fucked him and it was good til you found out what the "Good Bros" had been telling you like maybe "Bad Bro" ain't faithful and ain't gon be faithful. You not the only one, you ain't even number one among all the other ones. Am I hitting a nerve?
"We don't date the Bad Boy cause we want the "Bad Boy" or to hurt you we date the "Bad Boy cause it's the Mother in us trying to save em." Spiffy the Poetess
I've been that good Black Man. I've gotten into shit behind a Sistah. I've been in the friend zone while some undeserving letch of a Brother constantly managed to worm they way back into your bed. You took his seed inside you and bore his fruits and now you mad cause you gardening alone. Wasn't he the Alpha Male of the pack? The Strongest, the Tallest, The finest? YOU chose him Sistah! That was your fault and on behalf of all the Brothers would caught a case behind defending you or got beat down for your sakes I say Enuff!
Now, we got movie after movie of all these broken, bitter sistahs and these cardboard cut outs of weak men! No more! There are too many God (IAM) fearing men we constantly pick up the pieces of broken, bitter sisters that Don't see them and constantly look right passed them.
Brothers and Sisters need to talk to one another in a very real way. Let me start by saying that some Sistahs priorities are wrong and need to be changed. You pick these men. You raised these Men. Hint: What you say to your Sisters about His Daddy and to him is heard and overheard. You created these Monsters Sisters! How many of you turned away the Father from interacting with the child and how many more Good Men who were not biological Fathers did you turn away?
Well, enough ranting! Let's talk!
BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!
