From celebrities to average, every day black men, this fetishism of white women is common.
All of which are meant to try and “blend in,” to “survive.” And this fight for “survival,” requires black people to unify with whiteness but also a segregate from blackness. An unattractiveness that has poisoned mankind against black women.
It’s a betrayal that creates wars within the black community. Too many times, in both past and present, there have been many instances where my fellow black girls are portrayed as stubborn, sassy, dominant, and loud, with derogatory labels such as “ratchet,” “bougie,” and -in the words of Masaratti Rick- “uncoachable” are applied to them.
From slavery to segregation to modern day institutionalized racism, it has been made apparent that whiteness is desired over blackness.
From billboards to dolls to businesses to TV and so on and so on, white people are advertised all throughout the country.
Thus, they try to remedy this “sickness” by washing themselves clean through whiteness. And one of those constructs was creating the perfect woman: submissive, quiet, appeals to the man, gentle, white, etc.
