Why?

I watched with pride has millions of African-Americans exercised their right to vote across the U.S.  Some bringing lawn chairs and bag lunches for the long wait.  So much for stereotypes about black folks won’t wait, can’t wait don’t stick together.  Tuesday night we helped elect re-elect the nation’s first African-American president.

But I digress, the real purpose for this blog is to explore why African-American women are so angry. Anger is a disease.   We are so filled with rage and suspicion it is crippling our lives and our families – our men.  We must find positive channels to rid ourselves of this disease.   I know because I have been one of those women for so long, but I am mounting through this blog a campaign for change.   I know there are books  that supposedly support the plight of of black women.  I  met the author of one such book and  she is a VERY angry black woman.   Luckily,  I have the pleasure of having to have been raised by a woman who is free of this disease and I plan to take her lead.

One thought on “Why?

  1. **Hey there my Sista..Ran across your blog in search of like minded folks on the site to read N possibly follow. First off I couldn’t agree more with your comments about the recent Presdential Election. It was VERY high on my list of priorities/thoughts/prayers long before the campaign period even rolled around. If not else, once again, Blacks learned that UNITED there is nothing that we can’t accomplish. Along side many other Americans who voted in favor of moving forward in a progressive manner for the next FOUR years.

    Now onto the 2nd part of your post that caught my attention..Where are you running into all of these so called angry Black women??? And an avid reader myself I’d like to read the book you’ve referenced in an attempt to see where your comments are coming from…Curious actually because as a Black Sista knocking on 50s door; I personally know NO angry Black women. Not one..And I’ve had a pretty colorful , vast life journey. Stretching from coast to coast N reaching as far as overseas. Doesn’t mean there aren’t any angry Black women out there, as there are in any ethnic group, I just don’t see it as rampant as I guess you see it. The Black women/
    Sistas I’ve encountered in my life(including a #1 rated classy women I’m honored to call Mom & a host of other aunts/cousins/exmominlaws/exsisinlaws/deceased grands..) journey are many words I can list to describe them but none of them are so angry that I’d label them as such..A few words I can think of to describe them are: amazing mothers!/nuturing/committed wives/highly educated/intelligent/quick witted/HARD diligent worker bees/LEADERS/spiritual/LOVING/inspirational..etc etc. When you can find time and if you’d like drop by my blog site and I think you’ll see a bit more evidence that far more positive Black women exist and are spreading a message of love…Hope to rap soon . Until then stay UPlifted N blessed. Sincerely, Berna(the 1 N only)
