That is such B.S. and things have not been like that in the last few decades. At the absolute worst that attitude went out by the start of the 90's.

Stop yelling fire when there isn't even a whiff of smoke. Stop blaming other people for your own insecurities.

I always wonder how people decide when something went out of style.

ie. "Blacks have been equal to whites since 1956."

Some people must be looking at different evidence.

Damn near everyone has it hard when it comes to their looks (especially women) because our society is so infatuated with celebrities that we're force-fed these images of Hollywood beauty. Our society preaches vanity and places looks/image, material possessions, wealth, etc over everything else. Why else would the famous celebrities be elevated to demi-god status? Because they're the beautiful millionaires that we all dream of being.

Again, you're making this issue more complex than it needs to be.

I think the way he wrote it indicates a larger and more serious problem than his perception of being slighted by society as a status-quo.

He wrote it that way because everyone of every race doesn't know how to act mature and instead decides to throw out thoughtless insults.

If people get angered by racism, it's probably not smart to insult other races in return. That doesn't lead to lolipops and ice cream.

No, I am not black and my intention is not provoke anger from anybody. I don't believe that American society is sending a giant and pervasive message to young black folks that they are ugly or inferior.

I believe the idea that such a thing is still happening is either an out-right lie for someone with an agenda, or someone who is being trained to believe something that isn't true. I don't see it that way and I am just speaking my mind.

But it's not just black women. Let me ask you a question. You're a black male, correct? Say hypothetically you were disfigured in an accident and there was surgery to reconstruct your body/face, but it would no longer be yours. And the technology was limited so you had two options for a appearance that you would wear the rest of your life.

Option A)


Option B)


I don't imagine this will be a difficult decision for you. Most of us have our share of insecurities and aren't happy with at least a handful of things about ourselves. Because we're force-fed these images of what beauty is and what we should strive to be. Because we see our little imperfections as holding us back, annoyances and the like, we don't ever look at em as each being a specific part of our own individuality, each contributing to who we are. We need more cosmetic plastic surgeons, so we can all be beautiful conformists.

She is far from the first person I know to have this belief. While it may a true to some extent, but it's nowhere near as prevalent as they make it out to be. I asked her for some examples. She stutters and then says: "Well look at all the black athletes or the NBA." I ask her to name some people (other than Barkley) and she was stumped. Hell, damn near every black player in the league has either a black wife or fiance and NBA players are perhaps the most visible celebrities around.

Just another example of why some women try to justify why men don't want them.



I don't hear it too often ,but when I do I normally challenge that person to name all of these players & there is usually silence. While Black men do marry outside of their race more than Black women it is a very small percentage.(White Men also marry outside their race at higher rates than White women). This fact is maybe where this myth /stereotype stems from, but without any numbers I am certain over 90% of Black 'active' NBA players have Black wives/Fiancees.The same for retired ones.

Matter of fact, offhand, I can only name Duncan, Parker(Mother is White also) & Kobe(hispanic White) who have non black wives/fiances

Hell I may just reasearch this someday to crush the next person who spews this crap .

Most of it is myth/stereotype , but I have to agree some of it is probably frustration for Black women who have trouble finding a successful partner.

Either you have done a substantial amount of drugs in the past hour or so, or we now know what it looks like when a statement drips with sarcasm in a typed form.
