Since the trending rhetoric these days is that career-focused black women are sad and dejected, we’re going to investigate it. From ABC specials, to studies, to books…everywhere we look the message is clear: Black women are alone and will be until they change something about themselves
The newest person to jump on this soapbox is none other than the scholarly mind that is Slim Thug.
As told to Starrene Rhett on Vibe.com:
Most single black women feel like they don’t want to settle for less. Their standards are too high right now. They have to understand that successful black men are kind of extinct. We’re important. It’s hard to find us so black women have to bow down and let it be known that they gotta start working hard; they gotta start cooking and being down for they man more. They can’t just be running around with their head up in the air and passing all of us.
I have a brother that dates a White woman and he always be f***ing with me about it saying, “Y’all gotta go through all that s*** [but] my White woman is fine. She don’t give me no problems, she do whatever I say and y’all gotta do all that arguing and fighting and worry about all this other s***.”
My girl is Black and White. I guess the half White in her is where she still cooks and do all the s*** that I say, so we make it. She just takes care of me and I like that. She don’t be begging and I don’t gotta buy her all this crazy a** s***. And she’s a smart girl too.
White women treat they man like a king and Black women feel like they ain’t gotta do that s***. Black women need to stand by their man more. Don’t always put the pressure of if I’m f***ing with you, you gotta buy me this and that.
Well, lucky you!
We understand how hard it is to find a good woman, but that problem transcends race. Since the beginning of time (literally) women of African descent have catered, fed, nourished, breathed life into and supported black men. Although the Houston rapper made some vital points on relationship habits of men and women, is an overtly idiotic way to describe an entire race of people.
Black women are single, not alone. Want to know the reason why? Ask them individually! Because contrary to popular belief all black women aren’t amalgamated into one person and this madame is sick and tired of being treated that way.
