Response to "Old Book of New Poems for Black People"
What the Black women (as a whole) has been programed to NOT understand is that Black men like any other men are conquerors.
It can be physical or mental (influential). Innately, when Black men come against racism (at least in America), our ultimate goal is a joint dominion of the land. On ALL levels. Primarily for our SONS.
When Black women come against racism, it's for recognition and vindication.
SO, now you have the actual relationship. When most Black women realize that being with her ultimately does not solve ALL of a Black man's societal problems (that belief again do to the programming coming from the Black woman being the quickest accepted into the American work force for the last 60 yrs, only in the last 15-20 yrs a homosexual or effeminate Black man being quicker) she is quick to accuse him of not being "loving" or "caring" enough of her needs.
AS IF you could MIX a racial problem with a gender problem.
In response she becomes hateful and critical of a man's ways BEYOND physical abuse and or cheating/adultery. Unaware to her that incessant criticism on how he as a Black man deals with his situation racially is JUST as psychologically abusive to him as her being called names by him. So she spends her life jumping from man to man or goes out of the race. Though going out of the race might be the better solution for a woman with her mindset.
This is all general of course. Not every individual Black woman has the same mindset.
