if ww can balance the role and image of being feminine and strong, why can't bw?
bw will watch simply just to see themselves on t.v/just to see kerri. IT DOSENT MATTER. I saw/bought Hancock & he was jack ass, fried chicken eating, homeless alcoholic bum, chasing a white gurl. They show black couples in commercials wether u notice or not. The Xfinity Commercial showcase a whole black family

what did i tell ya! a show specifically targeted towards aaw, and it has an central ir theme. if this doesn't give you a glimpse into the mind of the aaw, i don't know what would. what's even sadder is that we have a black president. but a bw just couldn't cast a bm as the alpha male, even when it reflects reality - smdh!
the aam has the most pathetic excuse for a woman in the world.

she couldn't which is why the ir theme is central to the story - a story marketed towards aaw by an aaw. so what does this say about aaw?
listen i could careless if there are many aaw who don't like bm. whatever bm replace aaw with is likely going to be a major improvement anyway. i'm just amazed at how obvious and open aaw have become in their expressions self-hate.
