A few days ago on Twitter, a comment was made by a white girl, in response to something I tweeted regarding Blacks responding to racism by whites. She said Black women were jealous of white women.
Honestly, it took me aback because in all my years, most of the Black women I’ve ever known, actually felt supremely superior to white women. Yet, this child has a different perception.
The audacity and arrogance of White Privilege makes many white folks blind to their behavior and impact on POC’s.
Let’s be real, shall we. With all due respect, given the constant media and historical images of white women, they are more a construct of what femininity should be through the eyes of white males. In their desire to exalt white women, they did it at the expense of Black women, and the forcible removal of the Black male as her natural protector.
There is no Black woman who has any sense who could be jealous of white women. Why? How can you be jealous of women that use Barbie dolls and Mannequins as their beauty standards? Are these not some of the most ghoulish photos you’ve ever seen?
These are actual white women who had plastic surgery to look this way…
Who remembers this clown? My god. Tanning is a religion to some white people.
And the plastic surgery nightmares as the last two indicate…
When I first saw this on Inside Edition, honestly, I was shocked but then again…it just exposed how deeply white women are obsessed with youth, beauty, and the superficial. They are as empty as the dolls they emulate, yet, white men want the world to emulate them as a standard? What man wants to wake up to these freaks?
More like a warning of what happens when you don’t realize your self worth beyond your face, hips, and thighs.
Black women just know better, and that is really the correct assessment of how Black women see themselves. We are culturally more spiritual, and have a unique sense of self-expression, style, and presentation than most white women. That is just a fact. We dress sharp and we use various means of aesthetics to enhance the naturalness of our beauty. When white women look in the mirror, they look for wrinkles and get depressed that they look 45 at 30. When we look in the mirror, we smile, put our hands on our hips and snap our fingers because we’re 45 and look 30. God is good. The various brown tones of our skin reminds the casual observer of fine gold, bronze, and copper–everything valued and prized.
How can we relate to women who do everything to destroy their natural self? Lip injections, extreme tanning, botox, butt implants, breast augmentation, etc., it’s self-hatred to the extreme?
We are the real beauty standard.
And to the dumb white girl who made the comment on Twitter: Why would we be jealous of women who by all accounts, spend millions of dollars to make themselves look like anything but who they were born to be.
No. Black women aren’t jealous of white women. We pity them and THANK GOD we are not them.
