This is going to have to do with the show Scandal again. Because I keep seeing a meme in the black community of *concerned* black people who have a problem with Scandal. Of course these black people are black men. ( and some black women who felt the need to “speak out”)
For some reason these black men are concerned because that black women are being taken advantage of.
I think it’s great that black men are publicly standing up for black women * sarcasm off* but as I had to ask in my other post about Olivia Pope: Why now?
When I think about all of the things that *good black men* have turned a blind eye on in regards to the degradation, abuse and shaming of black women. Hell, what they themselves partook in I have to shake my head at the whiplash at the sudden change.
After dusting myself off and getting a neck brace for my whiplash I tried to piece together what was going on.
And then after reading the numerous articles and seeing the numerous videos it was made clear why people (especially some black men) disapproved of the show Scandal.
Because the president is white and male.
Like usual the only time black men can speak out about the horrors against black women is when a white man is doing the “hurting” (I am go to speak on the flip side of intersectionality which ironically has effects on white men too in a later post)
See in the black world, it’s not possible for black to hurt or be accountable for hurting black women. Because of white men…..
If black men rape black women…. It’s because of racism…..
If black men degrade black women in rap videos… and good black men buy the music/don’t say anything… well that’s totes okay because…. White people…. Ahem … white men (remember in black world it’s only okay to call out white men not white women because in black world to black men white women are victims of the *evil* white man too)
So if Fitz is hitting it and quitting it with Olivia on Scandal well then black women’s welfare must be discussed because well… that’s *racist* of course. We must get a history lesson of how problematic that relationship can potentially be because white men throughout history have been pumping and dumping black women for years, right?
Moving along though, you must remember that in black world where everyone simply lives a unilateral existence because all the blacks are men and black men care most about racism it is alright to talk about how *gross and wrong * it is for Olivia to be taken advantage of by that ole’ white guy.
Also in black world It’s okay for black men to pump dump and ditch, leaving you with a child because… well because black men simply can’t be racist because the white man has screwed them over.
When white men do it it’s racist, when black men do it… that’s just life. Right? When black men do it it’s because black women aren’t worth marrying because the drove the black man away with their manly demands right?
Guess I’ll be the only one to call bullshit on this one.
To the black women actually getting involved with this mess (and by mess I mean the women joining hands with black men to talk this “issue”) I wonder why these black women suddenly have a problem. I
There were no questions when any number of black male rappers got into the public eye and called black women bitches and hoes ( only now are people noticing anything is amiss)
There was only pleading with black men to come back home when they ditched their kids
There was only blinking and blank stares and scuffling around words to be PC when black men ever damn single day pump and dump black women and leave them like used toilet paper.
There is only silence when black men happily go along with the Mandingo, “we’ve got the biggest penis hear us roar” meme. Black men were fine when white women were objectifying them. Sexualization is okay when white women are doing the “objectifying” right?
And black women were too stupid to notice the hypocrisy.
Now you care?
Furthermore it’s funny but from what I’ve seen of the character Olivia she doesn’t seem like the normal portrayal of black women (that BET has no problem enhancing) she’s not loud she’s not overweight, she’s not poor/ghetto/ a mammy
From what I can see the biggest problem the black community and these idiot black women have is that she’s having/in love with a white president.
Hmm I wonder what would have been the reaction had he been black.
Because in black world intersectionality dictates that black men rule the roost .
What’s even worse is that these women complaining also send a message, even when the portrayal is good black women are willing to fight something that makes them not look like the savage beasts we’re so constantly portrayed as.
Similar to the feminist world that has hoodwinked black women out of being feminine for #GirlPower, the black world has hoodwinked black women out of good television roles because of #racistwhitemen.
And all because *some* ( I’ll go ahead and give that disclaimer I don’t want to hear it later) black men can’t stand the sight of a black woman boinking a white man on screen.
But black women won’t be laughing later because they gave up their opportunities and roles, and chances to have successful careers or even support other black women with good roles because they’re busy fighting a losing battle.
Well played, black world, well played.
Check and Mate.
