The Heat Is On!
Is it a fact that Black Women have bad attitudes? Or, is that a myth that has been carried on, and spread like wild fire from generation to generation? Before you start displaying your alleged BWWA(Black Women With Attitudes) characteristics... let's examine this topic.
lot of people painting with broad brush strokes - there is no monolithic universal angry black woman, nor is there a universal uncaring black man. Not saying either one doesn't exist but we all need to be careful about stereotyping ourselves -- lord knows we have all kinds of folks waiting to do it for us. If the conversation starts with "why are all black women this" or "why are all black men that", we will never find the real people who are there in our lives. There are angry black women and angry black men too. There is a certain amount of psychological trauma that all black people in this country have, so we all have to come to grips with what we are willing to deal with vs what is unacceptable.
