If Some Of Our Elders Wish To Speak Again We Are Ready To Listen

As a Black Women Empowerment (BWE) messenger who is uncompromising in the message I am very grateful for some of the historical contributions from those that came before us, who tried to warn us about the conditions and state of black womanhood.

We have paid it forward and thanks to prolific and profound writing and sharing our experiences via the internet some of the messaging has begun to make waves. While I’m not certain if it has permeated, there has been enough pushback and attempts at diluting the message, many have certainly taken notice.

Due largely to that bounced check of If you take care of me first I’ll have your back later between black men and women – where they’ve failed to protect and cherish black women and black children – we’re currently in a heap of mess right now.

  • Black people are operating under mass dysfunction, lies and utterly insane notions of what passes for “black” and “black culture” these days.
  • Tyler Perry bulldozed his way onto this project by pushing out a BLACK WOMAN WRITER/DIRECTOR.

Furthermore, Perry doesn’t even like black women! We are simply his cash-cows and as long as we support his projects he can use our money to further denigrate us!

The collective silence and true lack of sisterhood between black women helped facilitate Ntozake Shange’s mental anguish when she originally published For Colored Girls. We could also include Pearl Cleage’s Mad At Miles, Alice Walker, Zora Neale Hurston and any number of AA women creatives who told it like it is and have warned us time and time again.
