Just found this blog from WAOD. Better late than never.

Thanks for being one of the very few men brave enough to discuss this hatred of Black women across the board. It makes you even MORE of a man in my opinion.

This blog is just a summary of whats going on in england.I am an young teenagerI myself am a mixture of african indian and irish however i look like a black girl with indian /white features.
It has become so bad that black boys will say they do not even talk to black girls .This is very wrong. its not a problem liking cypriot girls or white girls or anything else. But to then say "black girls are dogs" They are truly forgetting there mothers are black there sisters are black they ARE BLACK .It gets worse.a boy has even called up a radio station and has complaned that he hates all black girls :| does he know every black girl?
he went on to say his sisters ugly what is wrong with these boys. a male firends screen name was "a mans best friend can never be a dog[black girl] i only do koli,and white " this is clear racism why do people except it .i have known a boy for about 6 mounths he actully talks to me and suprize suprize hes black. my turkish friend talked to him he was amazed she was turkish she then questioned him and he went on to say girls from your school are dark and large .this is not right.why do black people have such an issue with being dark or light this needs to stop.

I came across this channel and I thought I would share it with everyone on here. These are a 4 part series of why black men are dating other races from gurltalkktv by Temple Christian.

Wow, what a post! I know this is old but hope you don't mind me linking to it in my next Roundup. This should be read by a lot of people.

Wow, DJ. I came here via Neil's blog. What a powerful testimony. This reminds me of the tales of guys from the football team and a single cheerleader. To me, it really doesn't matter if the girl is willing. That's a different problem. But the attitudes of the boys, if the tales are true, is simply unacceptable. I have never understood the double standard regarding sexuality, since my Bible shows no such thing.

From another angle, I just posted a piece on racism at my blog. What you describe sounds like racism directed at the self, or one's own race. And it seems more angry than what is now known as "white guilt". As one who is bored with the whole concept of racism, this type implied by your post seems the most pathetic and tragic. Self hate? This alters my perspective.

God Bless

@Marshall

Self hate is the worst kind of racism, with African Americans it was first taught by the slave owners, the slaves replecated it and some of us just won't shake this.

Thank you. This IS the most honest post I have ever read by a Man of colour. Generally the only Black male i have learned to trust is my bi-racial husband. I've stopped trusting Black men a long time ago and I started not caring about what happens with them because of my own past experiences with black men. I know it's wrong to generalize all black men, but as a Black woman ALL I saw were bad Black men including my own dad since he tried to molest me when I was a teenager. So the generalization was warranted at the time. since then I hadn't wanted to be around Black men or Black people at all. I often hated the fact that Black guys were raised as a prince in my home yet I was treated as the help by my own mother and because of this I never wanted wanted a son and God must have heard my prayers because I gave my sweet husband two beautiful daughters. We raised them to respect us and others and to respect themselves. So you can imagine my dismay when the eldest got pregnant out of wedlock and to a black man at that. To say I was pissed off is an understatement. She has since given birth to a little boy. I had assumed that I wouldn't love this child since I'm not fond of Black males but I love him to death which is exactly how I love my own daughters so at least that's a start in the right direction. So maybe with his birth and your blog I will earn to come to grips with my indifference toward Black men.

I think where "Blamer" & A.M.S. might be coming from is the fact that you spoke to black mother several times. Many more times than you spoke to black fathers.

It comes off like you're very, very concerned about what these black mothers do or do not do. And you're concerned about the dads too, BUT LETS GET BACK TO MOM

It's uneven.

Even though I'm understanding that you mean to speak to both, you speak more to the moms w/o any context or reason as to WHY you're speaking much more so to them. Then, when you factor in that that many of those mothers were also the girls who've been victimized--it pushes all the wrong the buttons

@Roxie:

First off thanks for commenting.

I'm sorry it seems that way to you, but I addressed Black Men, fathers, sons, etc, for more than 2/3rds of this piece, I addressed the Black Mothers afterward, as well I concluded in talking about the collective community.

As for why I addressed Black Mothers specifically, due to certain other sociological truths, more often then not, the actuality is that they are often the primary parenting force within our community which of course speaks to another problem.

A problem I addressed multiple times within my blog, so may I suggest looking at this writing in context with other ways I have addressed some of the problems present in parts of the African American Community to get a better picture of what I am saying, after all this is one entry of many regarding personal thoughts that I have had on a multitude of issues.

Yes I understand that some sisters were victims, BUT, as with MALE victims of child abuse, to continue the cycle cannot be excused because they were once victims, I expect ADULTS, male and female to look out for their children and want and strive for better.

I am so scared and worried about this happening. It is happening all around us my male family members are molesters and rapists to girls as young as 8,10,11 and the girls are called fast asses and the boys that have been touched in my family are called puss***. They are not prosecuted and everyone is afraid to mention it. I do not bring my children around my own family because they ignore it. Having lost my virginity at 14 to rape I am terrified. I was villianized as a child because of it and kicked out too. I sleep on the street many nights. My mother often disappeared right before a molester would show up. What do I do to keep my children safe? I am married but dare not discuss this with my husband it is so shameful. My female cousins was just sexually assualted at 11 the purp ripped her panties off and yet she is called a tramp.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had given up on Black men, dismissed them as self-hating idiots. You just changed that. You have sense and you expressed yourself beautifully. Thank you brother, you just restored a little faith, some hope for Black men.
