To your question about I will say I’m just glad you opened your eyes.
It’s been interesting and maybe kind of awesome watching you go from having those negative views about Black women to being a Black man who truly understands the kind of social and cultural things that Black women face – from a race and gender perspective. People always talk about attraction in the black community and how colorism plays a role.
From the “loud Black” woman to the “no-good” Black men, people in the Black community perpetuate negative stereotypes about each other along gender lines.
Is this a function of racism (and in the case of women, sexism too) that we’ve bought into?
I’m not saying all shows are like that, but a majority of the mainstream shows that depict Black culture do so in a negative way.
