This person may fall under the category of being bitter. Courtney Carter, writing for The Huffington Post, wrote an article called “Black Men Don’t Like Black Women.” Our question was “According to whom?” Could it be the case that her relationship experiences have been so bad that she truly believes that all black men think she’s ugly?
We wanted to share the article because it is an added perspective. This does however make you ask whether or not some of the white-owned media have a vested interest in seeing black men and black women going at each other’s throats. Tell us if you think we’re crazy and what your experience has been. Have black men been kind to you or has every black man you’ve ever met treated you like dirt?
If a man said that all black women don’t like black men, would you believe this man was telling the truth or would he sound like the guy who’s just angry because the pretty girls in his life all turned him down? Read the article and tell us what you think.
“..and when he get on he’ll leave your ass for a white girl”
Let me start by saying this, I know writing this article was going to cause quite a bit of controversy. So let’s get this out of the way: I am intelligent, not what society deems “ghetto” and from what I am told and from where I work in the television business, I am attractive. Why is that necessary to say? Let’s start below:
Black men don’t like black women. Yes, I said it.
Not all, but many and it’s growing. I think I wouldn’t really care if OTHER races felt this way, but the fact that my own men do, made me consider turning my backs on them multiple times.
My boyfriend and I were having a conversation (he is Black and Puerto Rican) about black men vs black women. It started getting intense and I said, “you don’t get it! Black men are viewed as sexy and in a sense a “trophy” for another race, but black women are never deemed the most attractive. Other races are always seen as a trophy on the arm of a Black man”.
He looked at me like I was crazy and said, “you don’t understand the black man struggle. They look at me like I’m a criminal.” And in a sense, I might not. But I thought in my head, “at least black women VALUE a black man. It’s becoming rare to see the reverse.”
