Indeed in the most recent example we have the black male actor Kevin Hart, involved in tweeting and posting vile stuff about black women and you would think that that would be enough to raise the self preservation instinct in black women at least enough to do what they need to do to put an end to these irresponsible, almost weekly acts of public degradation of black womanhood by black men. Instead what you get is black woman after black woman rushing to defend the black male actor and bending over backwards to both excuse and deny the intent of his actions, as if it is nothing for them to be spat on and disrespected.
Black women must be the only target audience for whom studio executive and casting directors do no due dilligence, and cant be bothered to ensure that the actors (the men these women will be watching) have a clean and respectful past with their target audeince. Instead and increasingly we are seeing black men who have raped and beat down and said the most vile things against black women getting some of the most plum roles in black cinema!
Do you know why black women have no sympathy for themselves?
One clear reason is that black women are trained to cast themselves as the broad-shouldered and mature adult viz a viz black men. When issues of black men and their situation etc come up for discussion, black women immediately slip themselves into the role of the adult who should therefore be understanding and symptahetic in their view of black men (as the adult in the situation) and regard black men's actions in the most sympathetic of ways even when these men are brutalizing black women.
You need to disengage yourself from any notion that, "We have to be understanding and concerned about black men because they suffer and are victimized." Its time to tell all and sundry that you have run out of sympathy for black men and whatever little sympathy you have left you want to now focus on poor black women especially black girls who have had to go without care and concern from anybody from forever.
Tell folks who want to recruit you to black men's sympathy and excusing club, that you are no longer willing to be cast as the big sister, the older mature one viz a viz black men, and that you now duly and willingly elevate black men to the same level as yourself ie as a mature, competent person who should be held to an adult standard and adult responsibilty for their actions and not excused/understood in their agression and brutality because somehow they are the 'infants' and the victims in the arrangement!
