Privilege and Aligning

Aligning yourself with anyone who uses their privilege to take advantage of you or a situation is a bad idea. You need to watch who and what you align yourself with.

  1. Lol…if this article is written by the person I am thinking about, she is not exactly that racially ambiguous. She has pics online, and her heritage is very clear. You don’t have to guess the part of her makeup that she likes to run from…when convenient.

    • I wish I could I just link it but I’m not linking my blog to any more soul-killing material for bw. I just thought it was unbelievable how she went all out on being ‘racially ambiguous’ then somehow wants my sympathy for picking lousy bm to date. Girl bye!

  2. Wooooow. I had no idea what you were talking about, but managed to find it. The girl who wrote that article sounds like a tragic girl/woman who didn’t know how to properly vet. The article title says it all. Has she ever considered that she feels fetishized b/c she never demanded that these white men DATE her? Clearly she didn’t vet these guys before giving them access to her body.

    And is something in the water? Didn’t a mixed race woman just admonish Oprah in an interview?

Apparently, it never occurred to her that the black men she dates might be just as prone, if not more so, than white men to fetishisize her. Girl, bye.

    Yessss!

    • KP, I don’t know what it is in the water but them broads better stop drinking that stuff around me. Yes, that’s the exact thing I thought, oh you have no vetting skills. That didn’t have anything to do w/ the man’s race, that was all her.

    • KP, Rae Dawn Chong apparently lost her mind. She’s been irrelevant since the mid-80s, and she wanted some attention. It’s her prerogative to dislike Oprah, but the bigotry she expressed was telling.

  3. I know the site you’re referring to.

    A major reason I avoided most social media after the Zimmerman verdict was because I knew that sympathy, mourning, and contemplation (for Trayvon, his parents, and the thought of what that means for young blacks in this faux post-racial society) would be twisted into a “black women need to support black men because they have it so hard” general tactic by some ignoramuses.

    Because it always comes back to that, in most black spaces. It’s ingrained in much of the discourse surrounding racism, bigotry, and discrimination. And even more so these days, when there is a rise of black women in many areas, but especially in media (specifically TV). It’s not the same for black men. So you have black men and women, under the guise of intelligent discourse, “empowerment,” who keep alluding to “black love/rebuilding the community/support the brothas/etc” And you have women who fall for that ish and “fall back in line.”

    As for the article, I thought it hilarious that the racially ambiguous woman felt exoticized when dating white men, but not so much when dating black men. Apparently, it never occurred to her that the black men she dates might be just as prone, if not more so, than white men to fetishisize her. Girl, bye.

    • I knew the same thing but the difference between Trayvon and the rest of these negroes was he was a child, not a grown man. I’m not giving 25, 30, 40, & 50 yo folks a pass, they know better. And if another racially ambiguous woman who liberally takes full advantage of her privilege to try to downgrade me to everyone, tells me another thing about weeping for bm, I may find her and put a hurting on her. The absolute gall.

      • Yes, I really question the sanity of publishing that article. What makes one think, “hey, let’s post an article by a biracial woman, who conveniently forgets her blackness when it suits her, who wants to whine about her struggles of dating black men. That’s totally “celebrating the fullness of black womanhood.” That site and that woman can kiss my unambiguously black behind.
