She Matters: His reaction was wrong, but he and other black men need time to overcome the same negative images about black beauty that black women have been dealing with forever.
It has all ways been my policy and my advice not to Date, Marry, or Procreate with House Negros, New Negros, or any one suffering from African Self-Rejection.
I just didn’t want to fight the same battles for Pan-African Liberation at home that I confront in the larger community, I figure since I was going to be a Revolutionary, then I’d have a wife who was willing construct a DMZ from the Black Struggles in my home.
I ain’t saying we don’t have conflicts and disagreements, but I just couldn’t imagine fighting about such basic and obvious shit with my spouse. We are unified and straight on the ALL the shit that really matters.
But, I guess if you have the patience, understanding, and fortitude to share your bed with someone who suffers from Mentacide. You who are willing to be patient and understanding and help our people to wake up not just on a political, cultural, and economic level, but on an intimate one too, my hat’s off.
I’ll work wit cha all day in the community, but I ain’t bringing no Negro madness home, I ain’t the one.
