If you’re anything like me then this has happened to you before, the person you love is mad at you and you have no idea why they’re mad. Even though they insist there is no problem, you can tell their heated because of the cold concentrated look they have on the wall, and by how much effort they are placing on not talking to you. Meanwhile you have no clue whats pissing them off. It’s simply because its probably something small that they know they shouldn’t be mad over, but your best friend of the opposite sex just sent a text that made you giggle like a school girl and someone’s emotions are running wild. The following is a list of why they might be hot.
Neck twirls, finger snaps, cuss words, rolling eyes and ripped out tracks of yaki weave on the ground are all sign that an angry black woman is in the area. The media portrays black women in the worst light. A quick glance at the evening news and your guaranteed to see at least one toothless dark skinned woman within the first 10 minutes.
I used to think that these images of black women on the news were due to all the sane black women with teeth actually having jobs and not being able to witness crime at 2 in the afternoon. However I am sadly mistaken. These days if you’re not buying a woman a drink, or being told that she can buy her own damn drink then 9 times out of ten you’re going to get some neck twirls, finger snaps, cuss words, and a SMCH [official definition - the act of sucking ones teeth in utter disgust.]
Sadly, the reality of today is that these women are still pissed Raheem
- left her angry ass for Becky
- used her for a pair of Jordan’s, a ride to probation, a Lil Wayne CD & 3 Quickies
- never pays her any attention, but drools at her best friends enormous boobs
- is more in love with No Job Having Quisha and her 4 kids than her and her ivy league education
Some of those reasons may not apply to certain black women, another woman might simply be pissed off that she whored her self out for 24 years and all she has to show for it are 2 cured std’s, a stretched out coochie and a neat trick she can do with her tongue.
Now surely in no way do I believe all black women are angry b–ches and we’ll all be kidding ourselves if we try to pretend that there aren’t a few angry black b–ches out there, messing it up for all the real black queens. I believe Whoopi Goldberg said
When JFK said “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” I can’t believe he intended for the handsome young American pictured above to have to go through all of what he went through.
Sgt. Merlin German was hit with a road side bomb in Iraq which burned over 97% of his body when he was only 19, and required him to undergo over 100 surgeries and procedures. He would have to learn to live with the stranger staring back at him in the mirror. I could only imagine the strength it must take to be able to smile, laugh and joke after going through all of that in 3 years.
It’s a pain that never stops, a pain that is both physical and emotional. And as fact after fact, come out that this war was wrong, and nothing more than Bush’s way of stealing a country oil, I’m sure the pain could be unbearable. Sadly, when it seemed he would defy impossible odds, Sgt. Merlin German lost his last battle this spring — an unexpected final chapter in a story many imagined would have a happy ending.
