A Critical Mass of “Mainstream” African-American (AA) Women Have Finally Learned To Follow The Money & Resources Trail
"Re: Hill Harper Vacations With New GirlfriendI'm laughing my ass off at every black woman who bought his book.
When they look at black women they don't see prospective wife and matriarch, they don't see one half of a power couple, the missing piece to build their legacies.
When they look at black women, they see nothing but a market, a source of financing for their non-black gf's wardrobe and other whims.
Black women might as well open up their wallets to white and Asian women (and their biracial children) directly and skip the middle men, because all the money black women spend on their books, movies and music will end up in WW/AW hands anyway.
FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL, SISTAS."
When most AA women talk about: (1) the general lack of opportunity for AA women in modern day showbiz, and/or (2) the demeaning portrayals of AA women in modern day showbiz, AA women are urged to direct those grievances solely toward Whites in the entertainment biz. However, Whites in showbiz are not the AA woman artist’s greatest enemy: negro male entertainers are at the root of this persistent problem. Let’s be clear about this:
Negro male entertainers have had access to Hollywood-levels of money for at least the past 45-50 years. The door has been open for BM in showbiz for the past fifty years. But unlike WM in showbiz, negro male entertainers refuse to lift up women from their own race. Once the typical negro male entertainer gets access to Hollywood-level resources, he shuts the door behind himself and “makes it rain” for nonblack women. The typical negro male entertainer does not care - at all - about BW being made invisible or being denigrated in showbiz. Negro male entertainers have never cared about anything that affects BW.. . . I want more AA women to get clarity about how where the typical negro male entertainer’s money goes. And who ultimately benefits from the various resources (money, connections, inside info) that negro male entertainers get their hands on.
Ladies, the money you spend creates GENERATIONAL EFFECTS. Your money has been creating heaven and hell for different groups of women. Right now, most AA women are spending their money to create hell for themselves and heaven for generations of nonblack women. When you support people (including most negro male entertainers) who never give reciprocity to you, you’re creating generations of hell for yourself and the BW who come behind you. Meanwhile, you spend your money to create Heaven On Earth for the nonblack women that negro male entertainers lift up.
This pattern has been going on for a very long time. If you still haven’t caught the hint or noticed this pattern, that’s on you. Choose to support SELF. First and foremost.
This is why AAs have turned every past solution into a new catastrophe. There are almost endless examples of this. We collectively did the “bait and switch” with many past solutions. We took desegregation and turned it into a pretext for engaging in a permanent, undeclared boycott against all Black-owned businesses (with the partial and dwindling exception of barbershops and hair salons).
We took the language of multiculturalism and turned it into a pretext for maintaining our racial self-hatred and internal colorism. And there’s usually a sophisticated and fundamentally dishonest discourse surrounding each “bait and switch” episode.
Unlike before BWE's victory, the anti-BW saboteurs are no longer fighting over the idea of BW and girls being entitled and empowered to live abundant lives. The anti-BW saboteurs know they've already lost that particular battle. Increasing numbers of BW got the BWE memo and are escaping from all manifestations of Blackistan.
Anti-BW Opportunists, Saboteurs, & Confused Latecomers Want To Substitute DIS-Empowering Activities For True Empowerment For BW.
Anti-BW saboteurs want to claim that BW can be all for BWE and still spend their money to support Tyler Perry, Michael Ealy, Terrance Howard, Quentin Tarantino (who apparently loves to fill his movies with frequent and/or non-stop use of the n-word), Kevin Hart, etc.
Anti-BW saboteurs want BW to believe that they can be empowered by fixating on BM and what BM are saying and doing!
Anti-BW saboteurs want BW to believe that they can be empowered by supporting TV shows and other media that eternally portray BW as dysfunctional, unattractive, and ultimately expendable.
