If you want to be happy for the rest of your life

Never make a pretty woman your wife

So from my personal point of view

Get an ugly girl to marry you

The Colorism Has To Stop.

___________________________________________

I am in my late twenties right now and, hopefully, I will be living in another country by the time I am forty. I am beyond sick and tired of how Americans view Black women.

I hate mainstream rap. HATE IT, HATE IT, HATE IT. Most of these rappers are nothing but self-hating, angry, low self esteem having little Black boys in a man’s body.

I could not even read all of this article because I wanted to punch my laptop screen.

If this isn’t a hoax, then I have no words. Why do African-American men hate us so much? Why do African-American men allow America to belittle his Black women? Even other cultures of men who may treat their women like second class citizens protect their women from being belittled by other cultures.

Trash like this makes me not even want to date a Black American man let alone an American man.
