I'm Republishing Breukelen Bleu's Comments About Abortion Rights Because The "For Harriet" Facebook Page Apparently Deleted Them

Dishonest, brain-dead mammy mules will be the death of “mainstream” African-American women and girls. The uncompromisingly mealy-mouthed, middle-of-the-road colored girl(s) who run the For Harriet Facebook page recently did a post titled “Why Roe vs. Wade Still Matter to Black Women 42 Years Later.”
It seems to me that when you publish something like that on your Facebook page, you’re looking to host a spirited, full-spectrum of ideas conversation about that issue. Not the uncompromisingly mealy-mouthed, middle-of-the-road folks at For Harriet. Whoever it is that runs the For Harriet Facebook page apparently deleted the excellent comments made by Breukelen Bleu (writer of the Black Woman Think Tank).
The uncompromisingly mealy-mouthed, middle-of-the-road folks who control the For Harriet Facebook page apparently deleted Ms. Bleu’s comment while allowing the following comment to remain:

Ain’t that about nothing? Mammy mules piss me ALL THE WAY off with this type of dishonest behavior. If you’re too weak-minded to host an honest discussion about abortion rights, then don’t bring it up! Stop pretending to discuss the issues that are literally destroying the African-American (AA) collective.

Well, since the uncompromisingly mealy-mouthed, middle-of-the-road colored girls who control the For Harriet Facebook page apparently deleted Ms. Bleu’s comments while allowing sexist negro troll comments to remain, I’m republishing Ms.Bleu’s Facebook post and related comments here.

Breukelen Bleu said:

It never ceases to fail that when the subject of black female sexuality, reproduction and child rearing is broached, black folk become the most conservative, moral and concerned people on the planet. Previously unused muscles of morality and righteous indignation, suddenly SPRING into action, as they remind us of our 'responsibilities' to God, race and nation. With the recent passing of a bill in Congress that is another step in the ongoing assault on a woman's right to choose, there is suddenly much discussion taking place about how it will affect BW. (After the fact, of course. We were to busy marching for negroes to notice while it was going down). So now the discourse about why BW need to care about reproductive rights is beginning to pop up all over the internet. One of these discussions....

...Is taking place on FB, around an article posted on the topic. In this discussion, blackmen (as usual) show up, to 'educate' us poor, dumb, baby killing negresses about the 'origins' of abortion and the political, social and economic 'agenda' of those who pushed for its availability many moons ago. One Concerned Citizen told us to...

">>Learn the history of abortion. It was intended to control the black population! The most dangerous place for a black baby is in his mother's womb. If you don't believe me Richard Nixon said it better. Black women should stop getting abortions! Black genocide. They have won."<<
He went on to say (after a few other comments where the word 'eugenics' was thrown around, along with history lessons on Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood, Richard Nixon and some others)....

>>" I only ask that women of color know the modern history of abortion in America, that's it. I don't believe the government should not allow women to choose"<<
Now, I find all of this to be quite humourous. Black folk are QUICK to remind BW about the 'history' of those who have sought to harm, weaken or destroy us - as long as assailants were OUTSIDERS. And while on any other day, under any other circumstances, it is the OVER reproduction of BW that is blamed for all that ills our race and community, when the topic of abortion comes up, suddenly, there aint enough of us. Suddenly, all these 'bastards' that we are breeding to destroy the black race' are THE most important members of the community.

But yall know that negroes be on some TRANSFORMER shit, so that aint nothing new. But in order to set the record straight, ima prepost a version of my response on that thread ^^^ above. Yall take heed, and the next time some negro come with that "eugenics' okey doke, set the record straight and tell them Breukelen Bleu said it.

The black population NEEDS to be controlled. We have become a race of RECKLESS BREEDERS with absolutely NO concern for the quality of life that our children are offered. We are being made The Sacrifice by each other and outsiders to the tune of MILLIONS. If we focused less on breeding for volume, and more on breeding for PEDIGREE, maybe our race would stand a chance. We are birthing all kinds of degeneracy into the world which is devouring us from the inside out. It would be best if BW would simply stop screwing these fools in the first place - then abortion would not be as necessary. But when someone suggests that they simply STOP IT (screwing and birthing them altogether), the 'genocide' accusation is leveled again.
We damned if we do, damned if we don't.

But heres whats never considered. Men (of all races) make life and death decisions EVERY DAY. They carry guns as police, join the military and act as GOD presiding over the health care, politics and economics of every human being on this planet. BILLIONS of people die from the decisions (and whims) of MEN - and nobody questions it because MALES are supposedly superior and thus, have that right. Women, on the other hand, are taught that we have NO right to decide what comes thru us - no power over life and death. We are told to be but 'vessel's for the 'seed' of men, with no power over if and when our bodies are used to bring forth life. We are told this, at the same time MALES are given the authority to determine the fates of every human being on this planet, with impunity.

Procreation is the WOMANS DOMAIN. Males have NO say and are NOT to preside over it. But they killed off the midwives and herb workers and Wise Women so that MEN could control fertility and birth rites. They are OUT OF ORDER in this and the entire human race has paid dearly for it.

Anyone who believes the black women did not terminate unwanted pregnancies before the 'white man' came, is a fool. Women of ALL races have exercised their reproductive rights since the very beginnings. It was MEN who took those rights away, forcing us to fight to get them back.

Patriarchy banks on the human males ability to control the womb of women. As long as men hold dominion there, they control everything. It is NOT the place of men to do this, and it is not 'divine order' for them to dictate to women what is for OUR minds only. WE are the First Cause. WE are the source of it all. They, as males, come after. THEY dont get to dictate to the Source what our rights are.

That is NOT their place.

The greatest indicator of poverty on this planet, is MOTHERHOOD. Men used the wombs of women to control resources, hoard wealth and have bodies to fill their factories, whore houses and military ranks. 70% of the worlds poor are WOMEN and CHILDREN and it is DESIGNED that way.

Black folk wanna talk about 'eugenics' and 'genocide'? Lets start there. Lets talk about the 2000 people who were killed in Nigera last week - BY black men. Lets talk about the untold numbers of adult black females and children of BOTH genders that are violated, tortured and killed at the hands of men who look JUST LIKE THEM, all around this world - and THEN lets talk about the 'genocide' of millions of black women and children who have harmed, raped, and murdered at the hands of BLACK MEN over the years. Lets talk about THAT shit. The history of black folk didnt start when the slave ships showed up. Our history goes back looooong before that and when we start looking there, some of our folk got some 'splainin to do.

So, after we throw out the bible verses and Jesus quotes talking about the 'sanctity' of life, lets talk about how we give MEN the right to preside over life and death (even black men) EVERY DAY all through out this world. Lets talk about the guns and weapons and bombs and biological agents and GMO's and all of that shit that kills HUMAN BEINGS by the millions, every year. Lets talk about why is it ok for men to decide who lives or dies (oftimes in the most horrific of ways), but not women. Lets talk about why we presume that men are better suited for that task, than the woman who actually CARRIES life within her? Lets talk about THAT.

Now lets get to this; If we gone talk about the 'history' of all the medical injustices that black folk have endured, lets talk about the fact that a good portion of the medical procedures that are used every day were created and perfected by the torture and mutilation, both PRE and post mortem, of black folk. Lets talk about the fact that there is a significant chance that any medical procedure that black folk have done - especially those that may be required to save their lives - were perfected first on black and brown people - without their consent and under very horrific and painful circumstances.

Lets ask, if every time black folk see a doctor - do they ask him for the 'history' of all the injustices and terrible things that went into creating that drug/procedure/surgery/knowledge that now saves their crusty behinds and makes their lives better? Do black women ask how many black babies had to die for the life saving procedure that THEIR black baby received, to be created? Do black men run and ask their doctors how many black people suffered so that that prescription for the hypertension medicine, insulin and 'little blue pill' they love to pop so they can continue to get a rise out of them ashy dicks, long past their prime, could be written?

Lets ask THAT shit.

This selective morality, HYPOCRISY and FAUX OUTRAGE of black folk, who scream "GENOCIDE!!" when it comes to black woman's right to choose, but then go RIGHT up into that hospital to get some life saving procedure that was created and perfected on the bodies of enslaved, impoverished and oppressed black folk, needs to be called the fuck out. All this consternation over the loss of 'black life' is bulshit. Black folk dont care about black lives. If they did, they'd treat black women and children - the ones who are actually BORN, with much more respect.

No. This shit here is about CONTROL. Its about controlling BW and dictating fake morality so that we remain POWERLESS - not only under white supremacy, but under black patriarchy, too.

The next time so 'pro-life' negroe that you know goes to get a teeth cleaning or a pap smear, you might want to remind them to ask the doctor what black person had to suffer for that 'routine' procedure to become successful enough to keep their teeth in their mouths or the wombs from being ravaged by cancer. And since they are SO concerned about the 'history' of shit, remind their asses to cancel them appts until they have proven that no black person was harmed in the commission of creating it.

I mean, since we all need to be 'informed' and shit.

My Previous Comments About Abortion

During the comments to the post “Inception” And African-Americans, I said the following:


You’re welcome!

I can tolerate the forced birth ideology a little bit better when it’s coming from sincere Catholics who have a consistently expressed interest in preserving all forms of human life. This is the “Consistent Ethic of Life” that Joseph Cardinal Bernadin talked about. Because the Catholics who are sincerely concerned about “the seamless garment” of life (apparently a reference to John 19:23 in the Bible), tend to ALSO oppose the death penalty, nuclear weapons, and most wars.

However, I’m disgusted by the vast majority of the pro-forced-birth, Negro Muslim and Negro Protestant AAs that I encounter. For many reasons:

(1) These people generally ONLY profess concern about fetuses. Once somebody is born, then the pro-forced-birth AAs’ actions demonstrate that they are no longer concerned about that particular individual’s life. This shows that their true motives are more likely driven by the pleasures of: (a) a cheap form of holiness that revolves around cracking the whip on women; and (b) comes at somebody else’s expense.

(2) The bulk of these people are NOT doing anything to clean up the current disasters created by the legions of existing unwanted, AA children. And they don’t have any sort of plan for how to clean this up. They’re not willing to risk endangering themselves and their biological children by taking these children into their homes. Not that I necessarily blame them. My issue is their lack of seriously thinking through the consequences of what they’re proposing (having even more unwanted AA children). As far as I’m concerned, this lack of follow-up thinking makes their position an utterly irresponsible one.

I’m not recommending that naive, unprepared people take these unwanted children into their homes. The “typical” parent can handle normal children. But the bulk of the children in foster care are NOT normal children. You really need specialized preparation to deal with most of them.

Anyone who has spent any amount of time working in the child welfare system (be it in court, or as a caseworker) can tell you an extremely ugly reality—many of the already existing discarded/taken away children in foster care are safety risks. For everybody around them. Many of them have negative genetic inheritances such as very low IQs and predispostions for severe mental illness. On top of these negative genetic inheritances, many of them have also been severely traumatized by their experiences of living with neglectful and abusive biological parents.

Nobody talks about the adopted toddlers who hoard food in their pockets. Or the toddlers who bang their heads against walls when they don’t get their way. Or the adopted first-graders who try to rub the genitals of every adult they encounter—because that’s what they’ve been trained to do by their mother’s new-baby-daddy. Or who masturbates in public. Or the adopted 8-year-old who sexually molests the adoptive parents’ younger biological children. Or who is revealed to be schizophrenic when they hit puberty. All of this came up during a post at the previous blog (which is now a chapter in the book—the chapter about single adoption being “Plan B” for many AA women who haven’t married by 35).

Nobody talks about the many failed adoptions that end up back in the child welfare courts.

I’ve never met a pro-forced-birth AA who had any sort of plan for dealing with the existing unwanted pregnancies that turned into the above-described deranged AA children. No, they’re through with the situation after the woman/girl gives birth.

(3) I’m annoyed by their often childish manner of evaluating ideas. Yes, it’s important to factor in who the source of a particular idea is. However, that’s only part of the scrutiny that should be given to ALL ideas, whatever their source. Even a stopped clock is factually correct twice a day.

(4) In addition to having no plan to clean up the existing mess created by existing unwanted AA children, the pro-forced-birth AAs don’t understand that the birth of more unwanted AA children will be the DEATH of the rest of us. Having an AA collective that is increasingly filled with low IQ, predisposed to be mentally ill, neglected and abused children who are likely to continue the abuse cycle when they grow up does NOT help any of us.

And let’s be real about our distate with so-called eugenics: The plain truth is that it’s the LEAST capable AAs who are having an ever-increasing proportion of AA births. Productive modern AAs generally don’t have more than 3 children. Many of our best and brightest BW are not having children (for a variety of reasons). Meanwhile, the AA female drug addicts, never-worked-a-day-in-their-lives welfare recipients, and criminals generally have at least 3-4 children—and it’s more like 5-6 births. This overall pattern does not bode well for the future of the AA collective.

I said the following during a post at the previous blog, Home Is Where The Hate Is: Black Religious-Inspired Bigotry in Place of Godliness:

I’ve been stunned into befuddled silence by the recent outbreaks of right-wing violence. From the assassination of a doctor who offered abortion services to the murder of a guard at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

I was even more stunned when I pondered how African-Americans’ religious-inspired bigotry helps create the atmosphere that makes these slayings possible. We love to engage in hateful, hypocritical, bigoted talk.

Our fake “holiness talk” isn’t about love of God. It’s about the pleasure of cracking the whip on other people. We revel in verbally stepping on people who are engaged in sexual activities that we have no interest in participating in, such as the gays. Meanwhile, the majority of our births are out of wedlock. Despite all of our “We want forced births to be the law of the land” rhetoric, we are avid consumers of abortion services.

We are hateful bigots.

We are shameless hypocrites.

We are self-destructive fools.

By our bigoted statements and actions, we are ultimately supporting White, racist politicians who will turn back the clock on all of our (already extremely fragile) advancements.

This is what happened when many confused African-Americans voted for Pres. Bush to have a second term in office. I had many arguments with many confused Blacks who told me that they were voting for Bush because of so-called “moral issues” (translation: their opposition to gays having rights). Many of the Black folks saying these things were shacked up and had illegitimate children. [Translation: “By stepping on gays, I get to feel a rush of holiness without having to engage in any sort of self-discipline.”] I noticed that some of this “moral issues” talk dried up after Pres. Bush did a “heckuva job” of ignoring the Black deaths and suffering caused by Hurricane Katrina.

By our bigoted statements and actions, we are ultimately supporting White, racist extremists who will turn their guns on US.

Even worse, I believe that our fake religiosity (which takes the form of bigoted statements and actions) is pushing us further and further away from God! The proof is in our ever-declining collective quality of life.



You said, “During slavery, BW were seen by massa as nothing but breeders and these black “pro-lifers” are doing nothing but reading from the same racist, sexist script. That is why you will hear nothing about providing assistance or stability to these mothers and children. BW are just incubators and nothing more to these people.”

I agree. Like I said above, I would have more respect for that position if the Black folks talking that stuff: (1) were consistent in their professed concern about “life,” and (2) had a plan for dealing with the existing unwanted AA children.

The Bottom Line About These Dishonest “Trickbag” Conversations About African-American Women’s Life & Death Issues

Ladies, beware of “talking head” colored girls who only pretend that they want to discuss AAs’ life and death issues. The real deal is that their Tightly Scripted To Only Fall Within Certain Parameters Conversations are a safety valve in support of the continued oppression of AA women and girls.

These tightly scripted conversations are designed to allow AA women to let off steam about the deadly woman-hating hypocrisy within the AA collective while also blocking access to the strongest analytical arguments in support of AA women's survival. These fake conversations are a trickbag to keep AA women corralled into the stale ideologies that have them living the very worst quality of life of all women in the U.S.
Addendum. Someone from For Harriet is stating that:
For Harriet This is a complete fabrication and a very strange thing to make up. I've reviewed every comment on this thread including those that have been removed. "Breukelen Bleu" never posted here. Her comments have not been deleted. Frank Purdue has, however, been banned. Thanks for bringing that to our attention. If, however, I've overlooked something, I encourage Ms. Bleu to let us know, and I'll happily apologize.

After being told by a commenter that Ms. Bleu did indeed comment in that thread, the For Harriet representative goes on to say that:

For Harriet I've looked through every comment including those that have been removed. I see no sign of Breukelen Bleu posting on this thread. Perhaps she removed the comments herself. That is the only way I, as the moderator, wouldn't be able to see them. Moreover, she has deleted the post on her page in which she accuses us of deleting her comments. FH has a staff of exactly two people. This is very much an independent media outlet. I don't think there's a complete understanding of what goes into running a community of this size, but we're working hard. I only heard of the spreading of this inaccuracy because someone sent me a link to the post elsewhere. The measures we've taken to moderate aren't catching everything, but when it's brought to our attention, we act. Facebook inboxes are open; email addresses are prominently displayed and Twitter handles are easy to locate. Feel free to forward concerns there. Comments beneath Facebook posts are the most ephemeral because of the sheer amount of content we post each day. And again I invite Breukelen Blue to shed some light on what I'm missing here. -Kim

  • For Harriet Screenshots would also be helpful, so we can look into the issue. -Kim 

  • Yes, Ms. Bleu did post several comments to that particular thread (that I've republished above). I and the other readers who saw Ms. Bleu's comments weren't having some sort of shared hallucination. We all read the same comments from Ms. Bleu, and then those comments mysteriously disappeared from that thread. In responding to the For Harriet staff person, another commenter said:
    Elizabeth Henderson Ms. Bleu certainly did post here. Several of us read her comments when they were posted here. Perhaps, as they were a response to someone else's commentary, they were deleted as part of the banned person's.
    Like · 1 · 10 hrs
    Maybe that's what happened. I have no idea. I just found it extremely  . . . peculiar . . .  that Ms. Bleu's comments disappeared while the sexist negro troll's comments remained (until recent hours, when all of this was apparently brought to the attention of the For Harriet staff).

    And yeah, it would be nice to have some screen captures of Ms. Bleu's comments. I didn't take any because I didn't expect her comments to disappear. But now that I'm on notice that peculiar and mysterious things apparently happen on the For Harriet Facebook page, for future reference I'll know to take screen captures of anything else of interest on that page. Starting with screen captures of the above exchange. Lord have mercy.

    African-American Women: Here's Some Of The Fruit That You've Earned With Your Knee-Jerk, Rabid Support of “12 Years a Slave,” Part 6 – FINAL

    PART 2

    PART 3

    PART 4

    PART 5

    What to Make ofBuzzfeed's “Rise Of The Black British Actor In America” Piece...

    If Angela Bassett, Diahann Carroll & Vanessa Bell Calloway Were Starting Their Acting Careers Now, They’d Never Get Hired—And Many Of You Are Okay With That Result

    Follow The Money & Resources Trail, Part 3: “12 Years A Slave” — Who Benefits? Primarily Outsiders Who Are NOT African-American Women

    I intend for this to be the last post in this particular series. Because I see that a critical mass of readers have (finally) woken up enough to understand what I tried to tell some of y’all a little over a year ago. When I first raised questions about your rabid, knee-jerk, unsolicited and unreciprocated support of Lupita Nyong’o and 12 Years A Slave. It’s taken about a year for many of the negative consequences I could see coming as a result of your caping for Lupita and 12 Years A Slave to become manifest and slap some of y’all in the face. So now you get it. Thank God.
    I haven’t enjoyed rubbing your noses in this mess. It’s been necessary because too many of y’all are hardheaded and refuse to admit having made an error in judgment in blindly supporting Lupita & Assorted Other Foreign Black Entertainers. Instead of being willing to rethink and reconsider a position, too many of you have the mental habit of “doubling down” on a mistake. Which is not a good habit to have.

    The Minimal Bottom Line Of What You Must Do If You Don’t Want To Be Totally Erased As An African-American Black Woman

    Most African-American Black women (AABW) can’t understand nuance.

    Most AABW can’t understand (and won’t demand) on-par reciprocity. From anybody. “On par” meaning a dollar in exchange for a dollar. Not where an AABW gives a dollar to a foreign-origin Black person and gets 1₵ in return from that foreign-origin Black person. As various BWE and Common Sense writers have said, very few of AABW’s interactions or relationships involve on par reciprocity.
    This is why AABW are being erased and destroyed. Most of us support people and things that don’t support us at all. Or we support people who give us the equivalent of 1₵ for every $1 we give them.

    By your rabid, unsolicited, unreciprocated support of Lupita, 12 Years A Slave, and other foreign Black actresses, you’ve already put foreign Black actresses in charge of the Black Female Niche in American Hollywood! Here’s what these foreign Black entertainers who are making their money and careers from impersonating historical African-Americans think about YOU:

    I don’t know about you, but I hate to see Latinos, foreign Blacks and other outsiders climbing over the bones of dead AA civil rights martyrs.
    It also makes me sick to my stomach to see so many gullible AABW automatically speaking in terms of “we” in reference to these African actresses. Stupidly assuming that we’re all somehow on the same team. So many AA female morons grinning and skinning while Lupita is climbing over our ancestors’ bones to get her accolades. Dummies who assume they are winning while she wins.

    It all reminds me of the slave asking the slave master, “WE’s sick, boss?”
    By your rabid, unsolicited, unreciprocated support of Lupita, 12 Years A Slave, and other foreign Black actresses, you’ve already put foreign Blacks in charge of the image of AABW in American Hollywood. But it does NOT have to stay that way. What happens next is up to you.

    If you as an AABW want to avoid being totally erased from the American media—erased and replaced by biracials and foreign Black actresses (like what happened in the recent movie Selma)—here’s the minimum of what you must do:
    STOP supporting ANY movie or other entertainment product starring foreign-origin Blacks.

    STOP supporting ANY movie or other entertainment product starring biracial women or girls. (Meaning biracial women or girls who are not your specific daughters—it’s common sense to support your own biracial daughter’s aspirations, but DON’T expect any unrelated, non-kin AABW to support your biracial daughter’s aspirations. Because doing so would bring no benefit to unrelated AABW.*)
    This isn’t about these foreign Blacks or biracials. It’s about SELF-LOVE and SELF-PROTECTION for AABW.

    *I hate to have to spell out this angle so plainly. Because it makes AABW look stupid. But I do so because most AABW are incapable of identifying (much less protecting) their own self-interests. I’ll quote a comment I made over at the excellent blog, Not Your Girl Friday:

    "[Other commenter],

    Oh, my goodness . . . {raised eyebrow} I know that most AA women have a programmed inability to identify their own SELF-interests, much less advocate in support of their own SELF interests. Because many of them have been programmed to perceive doing what everybody ELSE does when acting in their own self-interest as somehow “punishing” other people.

    I’ll start by repeating part of what I said in this post:
    I said:
    —“It’s normal human nature to take care of folks in this order: self, family, clan, ethnic group. With many people in many countries, “nation” isn’t even on that list. For other people, “race” also is not on that list; their concern only extends as far as their own ethnic group. With most people, outsiders are almost never on the “take care of them” list.
    Most African-Americans have the “take care of them” list backwards compared to every other group of people. We put outsiders first and put ourselves last. African-American women put themselves dead last on the “must be taken care of” list. Our misleaders have programmed most African-Americans to look to create over-arching coalitions with anybody and everybody else . . . in the absence of taking care of self, family, clan, and finally, ethnic group.
    Our misleaders have also programmed us to fixate on being “fairer than fair” to anybody and everybody except ourselves. This is why so many African-Americans will come to Black blogs to fight with other Black people to champion the interests of NON-Blacks (such as the “don’t you dare call me Black” so-called biracials, other so-called “people of color,” and so on). (Note that these other “people of color” generally only use that term to describe themselves when they want something from African-Americans. Many other “people of color,” such as many Latinos and Arabs, are heavily invested in self-identifying as “White” in every other context.)
    All the above confused thinking is upside-down and backwards. And it doesn’t work.”—
    More specifically in response to your comment, if I had a biracial daughter I would support HER individual acting aspirations simply because she’s kin to me as MY daughter. I wouldn’t expect non-related AABW to support MY biracial daughter’s acting aspirations. Because there’s nothing in it for non-related, non-kin AABW to support my hypothetical biracial daughter’s acting aspirations. Supporting MY [hypothetical] biracial daughter’s acting aspirations would NOT bring any benefit whatsoever to non-related, non-kin AABW so why in the world would I expect them to do that? I wouldn’t.
    Not only would non-related, non-kin AABW supporting MY [hypothetical] biracial daughter’s aspirations bring NO benefit whatsoever to them, they’d be acting AGAINST their own SELF-interests as AABW to support MY [hypothetical] biracial daughter’s acting aspirations. They’d be supporting the continued erasure of their own image. They’d also be supporting the flow of resources (access to acting jobs, acting income, career boosts, etc.) AWAY from the AA collective. With the currently observed end result of AABW actresses whining about how there are no roles for them.
    BM celebrities have done this for decades and yet many of them want to be “perpetually surprised” by the logical, end result of generations of them transferring resources back to nonblacks (via their marriages to nonblack women): They have no institutions of their own. They have nothing they control. They are still dependent on WM to provide entertainment industry jobs for them. With the currently observed end result of many of these same BM actors whining about how there are no roles for them.
    Well, there’s nothing for AA Black performers because generations of us have transferred all our resources AWAY from ourselves and toward biracials, other nonblacks, and now foreign non-AA Blacks like Lupita and the rest of the foreign Blacks in 12 Years a Slave.
    I don’t support having MY image erased as an AABW.
    The only exception I would make to that basic position is that I would support MY [hypothetical] biracial daughter’s acting aspirations because that’s MY child and MY kin. And it benefits me to support my immediate family.* I certainly wouldn’t expect unrelated, non-kin AABW to support [hypothetical] biracial daughter’s acting aspirations.
    Now, if you want to support your own erasure by supporting the acting aspirations of random, unrelated, no-kin-to-you biracial girls and women actresses, go right ahead. You’re welcome to do that. It’s a free enough country.
    [*Only with those immediate family members who practice on-par reciprocity with me and do as much for me as I do for them. A nonblack friend who’s an “ace boon” who has actively and consistently supported me is a higher priority to me than a non-immediate blood relative who has done nothing for me. I care the most about the people who by their actions have demonstrated that they care the most about me.]
    Most people, in parallel with considerations of degrees of kin, also prioritize folks according to how much those people do for them. Here’s how most people who are NOT AABW prioritize people (with the #1 slot being the category of persons who are most important to them):
    (1) People who consistently do a lot for them. [In other words, “ace boons” who actively have their back.
    (2) People who sometimes do some things for them.
    (3) People who do very little for them.
    (4) People who do nothing for them.
    I’ll note that people who do worse than nothing for them—meaning folks who harm them or their interests—don’t exist on the mental priority checklist for folks who are something other than an AABW.
    By contrast, here’s how most AABW tend to prioritize people with reference to how much those people do for them (with the #1 slot being the category of persons who are most important to them)(also noting that gender trumps degree of helpfulness):
    (1) BM who do very little for them.
    (2) BM who do nothing for them.
    (3) BM who harm them or their interests.
    (4) BW who sometimes do some things for them. [Most AABW have a real problem with practicing on-par reciprocity with other AABW.]
    (5) BW who consistently do a lot for them (they’re not prioritized because other BW take them and their support for granted).
    (6) BW harm other BW’s interests.
    (7) BW who do nothing for them.
    Also by contrast with everybody who is something other than an AABW, here’s how most AABW prioritize people with reference to degrees of shared ethnic identity (with the #1 slot being the category of persons who are most important to them):
    (1) Any and all Black males, including random, non-related, non-kin BM. Including BM who—by their actions and statements—have demonstrated that they mistreat, abuse, and hate BW (oh, like Ar-ruh Kelly, Chris Brown, Kevin Hart, etc.). Including the anti-AA bigots among various groups of random, non-related, non-kin foreign-origin (non-AA) Blacks.
    (2) Foreign-origin, non-AA Blacks, including random, non-related, non-kin, foreign-origin non-AA Blacks (like Lupita, Nicky Minaj, etc.).
    (3) Random nonblack “people of color,”, including random, non-related, non-kin biracials, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans. Including the anti-Black racist bigots among these various groups of random, non-related, non-kin nonblacks.
    (4) Self—as an AABW, and other AABW and girls. Last. Dead last.
    Some AABW have slight differences in the middle ranks of how they prioritize people according to degrees of ethnic/racial closeness. Other AABW have slight differences in the middle ranks of how they prioritize people according to how much those persons do for them.
    But what the vast majority of “typical” AABW have in common is that they consistently put themselves and their own interests as African-American Black women dead last. This upside-down, backwards way of setting priorities is a large part of why AABW and girls are in the condition they’re in.

    Let me emphasize: Everybody’s perfectly free and welcome to set their own priorities however they wish. Any AA Black woman who wants to prioritize the interests of folks who are something other than AA Black women (over their own interests as an AABW) is perfectly free and welcome to do so.

    I’m only talking about why I do what I do, and why I advocate what I advocate. God respects free will, and so do I."

    If You’re Going To Socialize With Non-AAs, You Need To Understand They DON’T View The World The Way Most AAs Do

    I talked about this specifically in terms of foreign-origin Blacks in the post Pay Attention to Nuances When Black PeopleSay They “Don’t Understand What Black Means.” But it really applies to all types of non-AAs, not just foreign Blacks.

    It’s funny. Over the years when I’ve brought up these issues, many gullible AABW have assumed that I’m angry with or dislike foreign Black folks. I don’t dislike them as a blanket category; and I'm not angry with them. Actually, I’ve interacted with them (and with other folks with 3rd world heritage) more than most “typical” AAs. Having been around 3rd world immigrants, I see them more clearly than most AAs do (in particular new school AAs). Because I’ve never looked at foreign Blacks or Latinos or Asians or immigrant Muslims through rose-petal filters. I never assumed that they viewed the world the way “mainstream” AAs do. Especially not the way most new school AAs view the world. They DON’T.

    Here’s the primary difference that mainstream AAs (and in particular new school AAs) need to understand:

    Mainstream AAs—especially new school AAs—go through life assuming that there are (and will always be) various outsider-created, stranger-created (typically government-created) safety nets in existence. That underlying belief has LOTS of implications and it impacts how people navigate social interactions in all sorts of ways. Big and small.

    By contrast, 3rd-world heritage immigrants come from cultures and countries that typically don’t have stranger-created, government-created safety nets! Those cultures that do have functioning government-created safety nets like in South Korea or Japan, don’t expect those government-created services to pick up all the responsibilities of family. It typically doesn’t even occur to these people to expect strangers or the government to duplicate what they perceive as the traditional duties of family.
    Which is why even though countries like South Korea are materially rich and technologically modern, they don’t function like the American welfare state culture. People there are raised and expected to take care of themselves and their families. And if you don't have a functioning family to look out for you, that's too bad for you. It's also a reason for others to avoid any overly close affiliation with you with since there's obviously something lacking in your bloodline.
    In my view, old school AA culture is somewhere between the harsh realities underlying 3rd-world heritage immigrants’ view of the world and the Fantasy Island Entitlement new school AA mindset. Old school traditional AA culture didn’t coddle or cuddle up with dysfunction (out of wedlock childbearing, criminal activity, etc.).
    Here are some examples of how these differing world views play out in terms of the “typical” person’s behavior.
    If you as an AA have something they want, the “typical” African, Asian, Latino, immigrant Muslim, etc. is willing to pretend to be your friend in order to access that resource you have. If you’re married to a prominent or wealthy “Big Man” from their culture, the typical African, Asian, Latino, immigrant Muslim, etc. will act friendly with you in order to curry favor with that Big Man that you’re married to. Gullible AAs are quick to assume that these folks are grinning and skinning because they genuinely like the AA person. No, what they like is the resource or influence that AA person has access to (or is married to).
    Third world folks are very practiced at utterly insincere grinning and skinning with whoever appears to be winning or successful. Especially grinning and skinning with those persons who are close to successful “Big Man” individuals from their cultures. Because this is a survival strategy—remember, there’s no safety net in their cultures.
    I’m not saying that 3rd world-origin others are always insincere in their interactions with successful AAs (or AABW married to successful Big Men from their cultures). I am saying that these foreign Blacks (and others like Asians, immigrant Muslims, etc.) that you believe are your friends would NOT like you if they didn’t perceive you as successful or closely connected to a successful person. Unlike new school AAs, these people are not raised to cuddle up to losers and dysfunctional people.
    Foreign Blacks and other foreigners are NOT raised to automatically expect strangers to feed, clothe, physically protect and otherwise provide for them. Whatever physical safety, food, and other resources they have will come through family, extended family, clan and assorted other connections.
    By stark contrast with the new school AA “Imma do me” attitude that only works to the extent that there’s a stranger-generated, government-generated safety net to catch these folks as they burn various bridges by showing their butts. For now.
    Another difference is that there’s no mercy or patience with losers in these cultures. They can’t afford it. Remember, there’s no stranger-created, government-created safety net in a lot of these 3rd world countries. By stark contrast with the new school AA Cuddle Up With & Coddle Losers values.
    The overall pattern is that non-western, traditional 3rd world cultures tend to be absolutely merciless to dysfunctional people and other categories of “losers.” It's acceptable to actively piss on and step on losers in these societies. And unlike new school AAs, folks from those cultures who are “losers” know better than to expect other people to throw pity parties for them.
    The bottom line is that there’s typically very little middle ground in these 3rd world peoples’ cultural behaviors: They're either grinning, skinning and trying to curry favor with people they perceive as winners. OR they're pissing on people they perceive as losers.
    Since collectively, AAs are a losing group, people from these traditional 3rd world cultures are inclined toward pissing on AAs’ heads. Which is what they’re currently doing in venues like that The Rise Of The Black British Actor In America article. It’s not necessarily personal. That's just how many of these traditional 3rd world cultures “do.” These same people piss on the weaker or “loser” ethnicities and individuals back home in their own countries.
    There’s no reason to be angry, it's just what they “do.” Because this is a survival strategy—remember, there’s NO safety net in many of their cultures. There’s no margin for pity parties and wasting resources on the dysfunctional, nonproductive nuts in these countries. It’s a harsh world in a lot of places.

    You need to understand these dynamics if you plan on having productive interactions with foreign Blacks and other 3rd world folks.

    As surprising as it may be to some of you, I'm not angry with these people. Because through friendships with various of them over the years, I've learned about the sort of cultural programming they've been raised within. In general, these people are raised to only act right with winners. I treasure some of the things I’ve learned from foreign friends over the years. I simply have firm boundaries in place to ensure that 3rd world foreigners never get the signal that it's a good idea or advisable to try to piss on me or anybody I care about. I would suggest you do the same.
