The reason why "Man" became the slang in the 60s and 70s was because Whites used to address Black men as "Boy". So Black men to counteract that used to address each other as "Man".
That was sad also but if repeated enough. It will hopefully it will sink in. I agree with the other poster. I'm not necessarily looking for unconditional love for strangers. We as Blacks need to show more respect for one another. Maybe aiming for the stars and reaching the moon mentality.
I agree. I went through a time when I felt a lot of anger for Black men because I felt like society was tearing Black women apart and Black men could care less about it. I'm not sure about it anymore, but I kind of feel like Black men don't understand our problems, almost like you guys aren't aware of them, and that's rough. But ignoring Black men or becoming angry at them for it doesn't help us at all. I just had to develop more patience and a desire to actually talk to some of the guys I was around who said ignorant things. At the same time, i can't hold anger towards Black men because a lot of Black men are great guys.

I feel that both parties have an us against the world mentality sometimes. I don't think that Black men understand all of the problems or issues Black women have to deal with. I feel that Black women have somewhat of a similar attitude towards Black men. It seems as if we both want to see we have it worst and your problems aren't as bad as you make it seem.

But this is that underlying resentment we have towards one another. Which manifest itself into disrespect verbal and physical. These proclamations of Black love now is IMO faking it till you make it.

I think if you investigate deeper you will find that a lot of BM who are careless or insensitive to black women, are not actually into us.
There are black men who do not bed black women, but they hide that fact and eagerly pontificate about us and compare us unfavourably to mixed and non-black women.
Those men are to be ignored.

I agree 100%. This is what I mean though, it feels good to see a bit of the other side because I feel like our communication with one another is all messed up. Black men and women don't TALK to each other much it seems. Our community has become a relationship that's on the brink of divorce.:(

I don't fake Black love. I like most people in general, but I actually WANT to have a happy Black family one day much more than having mixed kids or anything.I'm not against IR dating, but I feel a connection with other Black people that I've never had, and I grew up around mostly non Black people, so maybe that's why.

How are you going to have your wish for a black family if you don't even talk to black guys???
Lol!!!
I'm IR and I talk to black guys and have debates with them often... black men love talking, they are at the bottom of society and are eager to be heard... by anyone.
Strange that a black woman claims black men don't talk to black females.
I smell bull schit!

It's seems rare that we say hello when passing as strangers. Which I understand because there are some thirsty guys ruining it for everyone.

When we do speak. It's like we have so many shields and layers of BS to get past before we can have an honest conversation. The initial reaction is what can this person do for me. Instead of genuinely having a conversation.
