Oh, dear. This is what self-hate and internalized racism looks like folks.

Recently, someone shared this tragic video with me and while it’s incredibly idiotic, I’m sharing it with you because whoever this dude is…he needs a talking to. Umm…get your cousin, folks.

I’m not mad at this woman. She’s woefully ignorant and annoying. But my beef is with this guy, who–instead of putting a stop to her offensive statements–agreed with what she was saying.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those women who thinks all black men are one white woman away from leaving the race, nor do I think there’s anything wrong with interracial dating. However, I do have a problem with men who will allow someone to disrespect all black women–which includes their mother, sisters, daughters, or cousins–in an effort to curry favor from white women.

While this video is indeed offensive and inflammatory, and will certainly bring out the trolls who lurk on this site (yes, I see you), I think it’s important to shine a light on ignorance wherever it occurs and let men like this guy know that his compulsion to side with foolishness will not be tolerated.

    One…I suspect he is on something and not taking the conversation as something that is serious. He is just laughing like a fool. Two…I feel bad for this dude’s mother, aunties, or sisters….they have to be heartbroken to see this video.

    This is just sad. Not really upsetting but sad.

    And we’re supposed to give a big hairy damn because? I mean seriously what does this have to do with us? What is this compulsive need so many black women seem to have that anytime a jack leg black man farts we have to be there to smell it? You act like museum curators collecting the best and brightest of the black woman hating vitriol to share with all and sundry. Again, why should we care what the hell this guy says and does? Are any of us bumping uglies with him? Are any of us on his payroll? No? That being the case how is any of this germane to us? I’m not warching the video. I refuse to pollute my psyche with the putrid mouthings of morons. Indeed, I rarely listen to or read anything written by a black man on the internet. Most of the time it’s either self-serving nonsense, or even worse it’s this type of viciousness. I have no idea what their problem is, nor do I give two good goddamns, I just wish black women would stop collecting and sharing it like Birkins at a two for one sale.

    Oh sh-it….the nothing but a brother set are about to be p-issed off…hurt feelings and all this comment section is about to blow up.

    This video has no effect on my type (i.e., those not checking for black men). I could careless what any black man thinks about black women. That is one of the benefits of not being invested in black males period.

    This video is why I keep telling these broads to STOP jumping up defending black men/males whenever something happens to them in this country. Let this chick in this video take up a petition and march on their behalf. They have no respect for you so return the favor. When something else happens to a black man in this country let Maria, Becky, Ling Ming take to the streets protesting on their behalf….let’s just see how that ish works out.

    I was just watching this on WorldStar and I can only hope that the black women in his family does not see this. Especially if the black women in his life opened their home to her (I’m assuming they’re dating) and were completely welcoming to her without realizing she had all of those negative preconceived notions about them is disheartening.

    Somebody needs to have an ole’ fashion sit down with that young man and quick. To just sit there and allow her to speak so negatively about his own race is just; I’m not sure what it is, but it troubles me.

More in race, Video
