I do not mean the civil rights blatancy of racism or the women rights parade, but the media and it;s effect on the American male psyche. Black women were some how a threat to white men and white power, a lot of us married wealthy white males before the jim crow, since this was a threat to the wealthy of the white community, we had to seen as hideous and masculine. The black male was thus emasculated to a high degree. I feel that men unconditioned from this racism towards black women just perceive black women as a woman. American men perceive black women in cruel and demeaning ways. It annoys me and I as an African girl feel awful in this country, like no man date me nor ever marry me. I am trying to achieve Jordan Spark's complexion , and the pills are working ..glow2thione, but I like my brown skin.
I feel that I am a great story teller for kids, and I love them for they are not judgmental like men are. I like hanging around fun women too. My biggest fear in life, I am a virgin by the way, is to never be intimate with any man.Guys say " oh I would never date a black girl eww" , they are brainwashed by media and our stereotypes never leave, media makes money off of them. Capitalism.
German men and Irish men and other men in Western Europe like us, my cousins that live there say that they are flaunted , those men are not conditioned with the same racism that is All too American.
Should I keep some of my features , write some stories and leave ..this will take time, or should I stay in America us all the products on my activity page where it says about me...and still live in racist United States? I am an African brown girl, oval eyes...but my nose if thinner due to nose right.

Didn't you already ask a similar question about this pertaining to the generalizations of "white" people toward those of other races? Everyone puts so much emphasis on racial issues that are unneeded today. Like it's ridiculous at this point and I am so tired of hearing about it. The year is 2012 and we are all EQUALS.
I am fine with interracial dating and I far from view black women as a threat to my way of life. Black men treat black women far worse then white men do. Look at all your rap stars for example. Women are objectified and called every name under the sun, and that doesn't happen from white people.
Way to turn it political too, but since you want to talk about how the media makes money off objectifying black women in our Capitalist country, you have no one to blame but your own race for that. Groups like 2 Live Crew for example who basically demeaned you all as nothing but worthless sex objects.
In a nutshell, if you are going to live this way and have this mindset about your treatment from white people, move to a different country. I see your question as shallow and very closed-minded. It's the typical race card. People always talk about how the black race is viewed down upon and I think that is false. It's just unfortunate that your race is based off of the Ebonics speaking thugs who sleep with anyone they can have multiple illegitimate children. It's the lifestyle that is projected that gets judged. The only people that can fix it, is yourselves.0
