“But My Best Friend Is Black” O.o

You won’t see many posts by me that don’t include some sort of factual evidence or statistic. After watching this video I couldn’t refrain from voicing my opinion about this dweeb.

Before I go on, please watch the video:

Okay so this young man said many things that should offend anyone with some sense. The worst part of it is the number of stereotypes one man can dish in a three-minute video. Let’s start with the main topic. The reasoning this man gives for not dating white women that even consider dating black men, is because they are used up, disrespected, have had trains ran on them, will most likely get aids, are trash and he doesn’t want them any way. These statements aren’t only offensive to white women that date black men but calling them all too weak and passive to have demands and self-respect; but it is also offensive to black men by stereotyping black men into one clump of a category that black men have diseases, beat women, rape women, etc.

Now let’s be real. Yes there is a black man in this world that has used a white women, beaten a white women, and raped a white women; but if you have ever left your front porch then you know that white men also rape white women, beat white women, and have sexually transmitted diseases.

Good people and bad people come in all shapes, sizes, and colors.  Aww what the hell how about some actual statistics…

From the late 1500’s through to 1865 when slavery was abolished, African women were held against their will and raped. Many of them baring the children of their slave owners. A slave woman named Harriet Jacobs was one of the first slave women to write about herself and others experiences with rape.

“My master was, to my knowledge, the father of 11 slaves. But did the mothers dare to tell who was the father of their children? Did the other slaves dare to allude to it, except in whispers among themselves? No, indeed! They knew too well the terrible consequences.”

In 2009, the United States Dept of Justice put out a report showing that black women are raped more than any other race of women. According to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, 52% of rapists are white. While 17% of the victims are white, 18% of the victims are black and 24% of the victims are mixed race women.

So people, before you make a youtube video lumping people of one race into horrific categories, please do your homework. Ignorance is not always bliss. Especially when discussing race.

  1. This peckerwood revealed his racist leanings from jump. It’s disconcerting to see stereotypes perpetuated in this manner, devoid of data, supported only by alleged “experiences” that ignorant people accept as fact. Thought we had made more progress than this. Deeply sad that we apparently have not.
