Sad, But True

Since my blog post on the stereotype Jezebel, I had some readers express disbelief that some Black women actually laid up with White men who hold such warped views. Unsettling as it is, it’s true. Sad, but true.

Note: Not all White men share this warped view.

Warning ⚠: Strong opinions to follow.

I’ve worked with some Black women who allowed themselves to be discussed provocatively amongst certain White men who hold such views. Why? Because they craved their approval and acceptance due to low self-esteem. I know of a few who were terminated by the very same White man they allowed themselves to be bedded by or sexually used in other ways. 😩

This Black woman has had more than her fair share of White men who have tried but failed miserably to have a “Jezebel” experience with me. Some can act like straight fools when you turn them down. Don’t let me have my long hair hanging down and pressed straight as I’m shooing them out of my face. The audacity of me! Can someone say, conniption fit? 💁🏾‍♀️💆🏾‍♀️💅🏾

How dare I, a Black woman, reject a warped White man’s advances. Man, bye! 😂👋🏾

It’s been said that I shouldn’t feel sorry for these Black women because it’s not the norm, but I can’t help but to. You see, these women have low self-esteem issues, lack self-respect and have very little self-love. When you take all that into consideration, how can you not feel sorry for them? Besides all that, they are still a part of the Black community.

Until next time…

  1. I’ve never encountered a ‘Jezebel’ experience. I suppose I used to have the “Why are you in my face?” look at all times (before marriage). And I surely don’t have time for it now. I lack a ‘poker face’ so that is why it’s probably best to move to the next woman. 😏💅🏾✌🏾

    *I soooo enjoyed reading this! lol lol

    1. Lol! Thanks. It’s a horrible experience that no self-loving Black woman would want to experience. Sadly, very few Black women have allowed themselves to be treated and viewed in such a shameful way. I bet you got a ‘poker face’. I’m sure of it! Stay beautiful and blessings to you and yours! 🙏🏾❤️🙏🏾
