Anonymous said: Why do you like black women so much?
Look, the burden of answering this question isn’t on my shoulders. The burden lies with why you’d have to ask the question to begin with. The question is “Why wouldn’t I like black women so much?”
I like women. They’re all womanly and lovely. That goes for white women, black women, Asian women, Latina women, Inuit women and women who live in underground radiation bunkers on the fringes of small Eastern European hovels. I like WOMEN.
Don’t fetishize my appreciation of black women and turn it into something I have to have a specific reason for. Because I don’t. If someone cannot see the intrinsic beauty of brown skin (all shades, tones, hues etc.) then that’s their issue.
I like black women so much because black women are beautiful. FACT. This is a verifiable statement whether people like it or not.
Now, do I like more black women than, say, white women? Quite possibly. But that doesn’t matter. There’s no sinister big picture behind it. Beauty is entirely subjective and, if you don’t restrict your appreciation with racism or judgement or whatever else, you’ll find yourself in a whole better place.
I used to get mocked as a kid because Scary Spice was my favourite Spice Girl. I grew up in a white washed town in Wales and because all the other members were white, Scary Spice had to “weird” for me to find attractive. And I didn’t like her because she was (and still is) black. I liked her because she was, in my eyes, more attractive than the others. If her skin colour helped by being more pleasing to look at than the others, then so be it.
But that’s how fucked up it is. It’s such a small town yokel attitude to have. Can those same people honestly say that someone like, say, Beyonce isn’t more attractive than, say, Lindsay Lohan? That’s objectively bullshit.
I’m sorry if your question was an innocent one. It just sounded, to me, like you wanted me to justify my ability to find black women attractive.
I didn’t mean to rant but…well…I tend to do it a lot and always feel bad when I end a post and reconsider what the original question might have meant.
Its kind of awesome to find such positive and thoughtful content coming from a blog dedicated to old kung-fu movies.
