Black Wives Matter

I want to point out one source of racial tension that is being glossed over. 
And when it is glossed over, the anger is then redirected to other topics, hidden and hard to identify, much less solve. 

This is about black men who prefer white women, leaving black women with fewer marital prospects.
Color preferences in relationships create racial inequality; a sense of being left behind.
While the statistics vary, black men radically outpace black women in marrying outside their race,
which means that black women are being left behind.

America has many celebrity black men that prefer white women, or at least Redbone women. 
Darker-skinned women are kinda-often left out. I have enough black friends to know this is a problem. 

This creates anger in black women. I know of one young black man who was dating a white girl. 
His bio-sister said, “A Sista just can’t get a break!” So, I know this is real. 

What does this girl do with her anger? It has to go somewhere. 
The main point of this article is that a lot of neighborhood anger is being redirected toward whites 
in vague terms that no one wants to label, so it is then difficult to solve. 

Several years ago, I saw a magazine that highlighted 
“The 10 Most Beautiful Black Women of 19??” (don't remember the year) 
There was maybe one truly dark woman among them. One woman looked Italian. 
The article should have read, 
“The 10 Most Beautiful Redbone Women of 19??)”. 

A solution? This article isn’t about offering a solution. First, let's agree on the existence of the problem. 
Yet, how many black women in America would say ‘Amen’? 
Should black men say, “I have an obligation to prefer the women of my race, so they too, 
can fully participate in the life that I am searching for.  Yes or no? 

I would like to see a debate on PBS between single black women 
and the white wives and white girlfriends of black celebrity men. 
It would be interesting, don’t you think? Would either side have the guts to participate?   
Would deep-thinking PBS have the guts to produce a program?

And how many black women in BLM marches are there 
because one on the white chicks in the crowd took the man that could have been her's?
