I'm mad! My little sister (God Sister) can't go to prom and it's really making me upset. I'm not yet a parent, so maybe those of you who are will feel differently. Here's the deal. My lil sis messed up in 9th and 10th grades and as a result is having to finish credits from those grades in the 11th and 12th grade and as a result, she will have to graduate in the summer. Okay, yes she messed up but shouldn't her mother have tightened the reigns THEN. She is being punished for something that isn't entirely her fault. Her mama was going through her own little drama and in my opinion did not adequately monitor mu lil sis. Thus, she messed up her grades and now is trying to right all the wrongs. She did well in both 11th and 12th grades making A's and B's but because she won't graduate on time, her mother is not allowing her to go to prom. I guess what really bothers me is that her mother won't accept that she failed too. She wasn't there as a guide and a disciplinarian. when I CHILD is in high school, they are still under their parents rules and regulations. The mother didn't do all she could but they child has to pay. Maybe I'm seeing this wrong. Parents, give me your input.
Part 2: Done with Freaking Black dudes!
Now let me preface this by saying this is not directed to the Black men who loooooooooove Black women or is it dedicated to the Black men who love WOMEN no matter what race, shape, size, and believe in falling in Love with whomever it may be. This is dedicated to all the REST of the brothers who seemingly as a collective majority have decided to exclusively NOT date Black women. I mean they are avoiding us like the plague. My BF told me that before her, her husband had sworn off Black women but now he knows that "she saved him" because Black women are awesome just like all other women. We are some special creatures. But these stupid Black men who've sworn us off are truly misinformed. YOU CHOSE the girl with the attitude or the money hungry gold digger! YOU chose her and now you're done dating ALL Black women because of YOUR lousy choices. HMPH! Well I want to say forget you too and good riddance! If you don't want me, I don't want you either. I was told in a blog to get over it. I mean I think the title was "Black women, get over it!" lol or some foolishness. How the hell are you supposed to get over your own damn people saying you aren't good enough to date. You're good enough to be a baby mama but not good enough to be a wife. Smh.
This just boggles my mind. I guess it's because I know what type of woman that I am and I know what type of woman I'm striving to be and I know that the rap that Black women get is not the majority. What we've been labeled as saddens me. And I know ALL Black men are not swearing of Black women but it seems like a big chunk. Just the other day, my co-worker would not let me see the pictures in his phone at first because he thought I would say something about all the white girls and Hispanics in his phone. Of course I didn't but look how guilty he was acting!
Well I say enough is enough. If I'm undate-able by a Black man then I say forget it! I'm dating Samoans and Puerto Ricans from here on out! *folds arms over chests*
No, I'm not an Angry Black Woman and I'm lying about not dating Black guys anymore but I am a hurt Black woman. Hurt that Black men haven't taken up for us!
