i need to stop seeing this shit come up on my dashboard. stop mimicking “black men” when you invoke predatory sexuality. recognize it and stop doing it. recognize the part youre playing in perpetuating the deadly myth of the black male rapist.
and read this: "Rape, Racism and the Myth of the Black Rapist" from Angela Davis’s Women Race and Class
reblogging rn bc a week ago this shit was happening non-stop in a room full of radical qpoc, but only one of which is black. i was confused and horrified. seriously. why is it that we suddenly dip into aave when we pretend to be creepy??
Because buzzed fratboys are apparently trustworthy to them.
Is no one considering that perhaps in the experiences of the people who receive the attention in question, black men are doing the catcalling that happened to them?
I get lots of unwarranted attention from men, but aside from ONE white dude in a car, black men are the ONLY ones that have insulted me, commented vulgarly on my ass, demanded my number, followed me or pulled up and stopped next to me.
That’s where the dip comes from. The men.
Obviously other factors can dictate the demographics and surely some people are just bullshitting but sorry, this shit happens.
"Ay I like dat ass, come holla at me"
"Tsk, bitch! Yo ass ugly anyway!"
No non-black man has ever done this to me, but the amount of times a black man has is beyond my capacity to remember.
I am reblogging this for the white chick with the huge tits and the thot above me that actually thinks niggas would check for her thot ass.
Bitches are always making up stories trying to demonize black men.
these dumb hoes….
chakrabot is on point with this… dude above me can suck dick, he’s basically his own bad example.
Agreed with Fullten and Chakrabot. This isn’t perpetuating some sort of stereotype. This isn’t making all black men out to be rapist and sexual predators. I am very well aware of the “Myth of the Black Male Rapist” and how black men as a general group have been unfairly portrayed as sexual predators out to rape white women.
But, like Chakrabot, the majority of my experiences being sexually harassed and catcalled has been with black men, so I can attest that they do this shit. This is not some sort of myth or lie told by white people to get others afraid of black men. I, a black woman, am sometimes afraid to walk past a group of black men because I can feel their eyes slathering over me and anticipate the catcalls before they come. And do they come, and I am not surprised. When I rebuke them or ignore them, their catcalls become angry, sometimes even verbally violent taunts to protect their ego. And these are not just young men either. It’s happened with older men too.
Regardless of race, men do this. MEN. Men of all races. But it is not inherently racist or enforcing the Black Male Rapist generalization calling black men out on their bullshit. This does not mean that white men don’t harass. Or Indian or Asian men don’t catcall. Because they do. But rape culture and male entitlement is very real in the black community, and I do think it has its own distinctions that are semi-unique to it. I know because I’ve experienced it.
….Is it sad that I’m kinda thankfull I’m bitch-ass-ugly? I can count the number of times I’ve been catcalled on one hand. Then again I’ve had guys drive by me, screeching ” HEEERE PIGGY PIGGY PIGGY”, and ” SAVE THE WHALES”
Darnit, are none of us safe :(
