I was going to write a whole ass blog about this DJ Kidd person and his infected peen, but then I realized I didn't want to waste too much of my energy. I do still want to say a few key things about this subject itself, because it involves black women. If we didn’t already need another “fuck you” in the world after Daniel Holtzclaw, along comes this trash DJ KIDD. If you aren’t familiar, allow me to catch you up. Dude infected over 600+ black women with HIV Aids. Actually, let me not call him dude or DJ Kidd. His name is Jason Roger Pope. On top of him giving this disease to black women, he is also a pedophile. Yep, our babies too. As young as thirteen. AND he is white. Yes, I’m aware that black men also play a role in giving Black women this disease, but that is a conversation for another day. We can get into intention, reasons, stats, downlow brothers (how that was over exaggerated), and all that another time , okay? Okay.
Please also understand the sensitivity that comes with HIV. Nobody ask for this and it’s no longer the death sentence that it use to be. Still, there is much ignorance surrounding it. I can only hope that these women go out into the world still able to just stand up tall, because shit is about to get ugly for them. I’m
How did these women get in a position to let a white boy that has made a living appropriating black culture? Woo, so many possibilities, but let’s just jump into influence.
I just recently read an article telling black women to date outside of their race. It’s always suggested that we try something “different” when what they actually mean to say is “better.” I am by no means a fan of black men (men at all), but what you ain’t gon do is devalue blackness. I have NEVER seen an article encouraging Asian, White, Hispanic, Indian, or any other race to date outside of their race or culture. The shade is so gross and real when it comes to black women. In between the lines of those articles what I see is one, our own men aren’t good enough to date. Two, they don’t see us as dateable, so we should take whatever will take us. And finally, it could be a relief for us in some way. Get the entire fuck out of here. Who died and made themselves the spokesperson for black women? Where has this assumption that we desire a bed wench fairytale come from? Y’all can call Olivia Pope and Fitz relationship goals if you want to, but it says a lot about how you view love in black and white. That whole shit was problematic. Also, men of other races and nationalities lie and cheat just as much. If that isn’t bad enough they carry internalized racism like a motherfucker. For kicks, Google Michelle Williams and Chad Johnson. Then slide on over to the parents of the McClure twins. I digress. Mistreatment can come in any package at anytime from anywhere. Never forget.
Other races are encouraged to stick to their own. Them dating black is seen as a loss. Like gays, people get disowned for dating black. Yet, here we are being told to put others on a pedestal. With black men that date white women, I wish the masses was smart enough to realize how this narrative is overemphasized in the media. Don’t believe the hype. BLACK MEN AND WOMEN DATE AND LOVE OTHER BLACK MEN AND WOMEN. They use celebrities to try and discourage the idea that black love does not exist. Let me learn you something. The total global population is 7,059,837,187. This means that the fraction of living famous people is 0.000086. Using only the total English-speaking population of the world (approximately 1.49 billion), the fraction is 0.00041. I refuse to let less than 0.00041 people make me believe I am unloved because of my features and complexion. Actually, Ima just run y’all a visual of the people the media doesn’t drown us with, because you need it. I can’t have my fellow sistahs out here feeling rejected because negros like Terrance Howard and Antony Anderson wouldn’t gave them a second look on the street. LET THEM LIKE WHAT THEY LIKE. Terrance Howard’s own wife called him a nigger. Don’t sweat. Please allow the Michael B Jordans of the world continue to justify dating outside of their race because there are ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK WOMEN THAT LIKE ANIME. (*Coughs: Meg Thee Stallion). Just say you don’t like black women, bro. We’re way too cool for him anyway. Dude has a butt-chin.
If you so choose to date outside of your race, by all means please do so, but don’t push your feelings and ideas off onto other people. This is a lesson that I have had to learn for myself. I struggle with even dating people with an attraction to non-black women, because I wonder where they place us on a scale of better or worse thanks to society. I’m a sucker for a radical and I make no apologies about it. Preference is okay. Comparison is not. I prefer taller men/women. I don’t date them just because they aren’t short. Feel me? I have def had a thing for a shorty or two.
I could drag this on but I have better things to do. To my sisters, if you date outside your race, please, please be with one that isn’t culturally confused. In an alternate world where I’d consider it, I damn sure wouldn’t be with a white dude wearing du-rags. What exactly are you trying to wave Brad? Don’t insult me.
Now relax and scroll into this abyss of all this blissful black ass love.
