This is my third post in my Read This Week feature! My suggestions this week include:
Black Women Haven’t Supported Their Men? - This was written by the awesome @anti_intellect (who I have mentioned several times on this blog) and is short, but to the point. He is responding to yet ANOTHER hostile drawing that paints Black women as monsters. Earlier today, I posted my sister’s response to another one of these drawings.
Dear Gamers - This is an excellent response by the brilliant Black beauty, comedienne, and co-host of The Talk, Aisha Tyler. People like to think of male gamers as creative and open-minded “Liberals” but some of them are racist, sexist and misogynist as well. (And, look at the gaming and comic industry itself.) Aisha was not having it. I like that she spoke up.
"But What About Black on Black Crime and Black Sins?" - This short but sweet post by @sonofbaldwin perfectly breaks down the obsession with the label “Black on Black” crime. I also mentioned this briefly in a previous post dispelling some of the myths attached to Black people and crime.
And, last but not least, a poem called For Women Who Are Difficult To Love is a must read. It is exquisite.
Stay tuned for next week’s suggestions!
