so when non blacks point this out it is racism but if they say it, then it's a disadvantage.

Many people don't understand the struggle of what Black females have to go through everyday.

However, Black women have always been strong.

Stuggles?? The dumb biotches spread there legs for crack heads, have children when they couldn't possibly support them financially. The problem with black women is that they don't take responsibility for their own actions. I have no respect for the majority of them, that's why there kids are criminals.

Lol. Why do they choose to live here? Go back to africa or to the farm where its cheap to live. With hard work you can make it anywhere- cut welfare and starve them out.

What in the hell would they do at the farm? God knows they wouldnt farm. Prolly just hang around the porch waiting for that access card.
. Fine hanging on your own porch or rock is fine so long as you can support yourself. These degenerate welfare abusers should not have the privilage of living in the city.

Black women need to stop having so many babies if you can't raise them right. Don't you see what happens to the fatherless children when they grow up. Use a condom if you are gonna have sex- is it that hard to understand? Or do you have so many kids just to get more welfare money? You are destroying our country shut your f****** legs. Your men have proved their worth so I'm not attempting to speak to that lol
