MACEO PATTERSON THE BLACK WOMEN HATER!Tommy Sotomayor.
Its WAR between BM and BW
Im thankful to see that the BWE movement has achieved lasting victory after only a few short years:
The core BWE message that Black women who are serious about marriage must expand their dating options to include nonblack men has firmly entered the mainstream. One can see this with the conversations and publicity surrounding Ralph Richard Banks book Is Marriage For White People?
A critical mass of African-American women have heard the BWE message, and have MOVED ON into enjoying abundant life in the global village. Theyve stopped restricting themselves to the dead Black community and vampiric all-Black social circles. Theyve stopped hindering their marriage options by refusing to speak or engage in the nothing but a Black man self-sabotage.
As time goes by, the ongoing success of the BWE message is why youll continue to see a number of BWE bloggers do various things. Some will continue to have their blogs serve as lighthouses helping other Black women find the path to abundant life. Some will retire from blogging altogether (as I have). Some will start using other types of venues for their discussions. Some others will use their blogs to focus on a wider range of topics (that go beyond issues that primarily affect Black women).
Unlike traditional African-American civil rights organizations that go on forever because their goals are never accomplished, the BWE social justice movement has accomplished its primary goals. BWE was designed to provide solid analysis and concrete solutions to help Black women MOVE ON into joyous living. This has happened. The tools for escape have been provided. As they hear the BWE message, those Black women who sincerely want abundant life have been quietly MOVING ON.
This quiet and growing exodus of sensible African-American women has not gone totally unnoticed. Theres a YouTube video in which a frightened Black man asks the question,Are Black Women Becoming Like Asian Women?(in terms of dating and marrying White men). In terms of sensible Black women, the short answer is YES. As this worried Black male has noticed, increasing numbers of quality, desirable Black women are leaving the toxic all-Black dating market and have MOVED ON.
The victory of the BWE social justice movement will prove to be a lasting one because its sustained and enhanced by the ripple effects created by every African-American woman who finds joyous life in the outside world.
