What is your opinion about black women

Updated on June 7, 2014

So what is your opinion about black women? I have many. Black women are an interesting variety. I went to school with black women and I also work with them on a regular basis. Some are better than others, but for the most part they are ghetto. Not to be racist here, but lets be real. Not every black person is like President Obama. Although, he is not even completely black and was raised by white parents. Well, you know what I mean.

Most black women unfortunately through often times no fault of their own have very limited education and come from poverty and criminal backgrounds. It all runs within their families. It is rare to see an African American person who has been successfully able to overcome the years of slavery that are in the past of their relatives.

I think that black people as a whole have been able to make a lot of progress. However, there is no real equality yet and I think it will take many more years for that to happen. It is because of the endless cycle of poverty. Being poor myself, I know how tough it can be to break that. Unless you do something illegal, you are a genius, or just extremely lucky, chances are that if you were born poor you will die poor.

Unfortunately, for many people like myself the American Dream is just that, a dream. It is very unlikely for that dream to become a reality. My daily reality is filled with a job I despise along with abusive bosses. Many personal problems and lack of time for myself plague my life. I pray every day that by some magic one day things are going to get better. However, I wonder if they ever will.

Black women tend to be on the loud side for the most part. Mainly because they happen to be insecure and defensive. I guess after years of discrimination they feel that the world is out to get them, and you know what, I think they are right. I cannot blame them for acting the way they do. Out there it is the survival of the fittest. You do what you can to live your life.

      They are women, pure and simple. As far as I am concerned, there is no color. Everyone is people. My opinion, Greg.

      So far we read just be happy and you will be ok and an exception to the overall numbers. I agree with the person who wrote this article that this is probably the social norm. A classless society is a long ways off and defined by environmental factors that make escape very hard. I have seen many black people succeed in my predominately white neighborhood but to say they do not meet dumb white people almost daily would be a lie. I have also seen them struggle with their own assumptions that all dumb white people are being racist, actually some of them are just dumb. You really have to find the middle ground and challenge yourself to see people as individuals. In reality most of us are trapped in a class society defined by opportunity or a lack of it. In equality is everyone's problem and a greater problem then you can imagine. A corporate world and fewer small businesses' has increased the insignificance of people and unfair hiring practices stand out increasingly more. If the biggest employer in town hires 10 women to every man it becomes obvious when you never get an interview. The internet application process allows discrimination to occur and you would never know. This barely touches on the subject but I can only say that any discrimination allows anyone to be discriminated against. It does not matter who you are less and less these days. There is no difference in black women then white women who grew up in poor neighborhoods. Drug abuse, sex abuse, lousy grades and school systems. People who take advantage of other people in poverty and lead you down dark roads. Two different roads but they are similar, poverty is still poverty. Poverty is the enemy and that enemy has not changed in this country in a hundred years. It shipped its jobs to even poorer people over seas and wants you to work for the same wage. It wants you to pay its taxes while it remains sheltered. It wants to own everything while you remain in servitude to the things that own you. All the damage it does it wants you to pay for. When we can stop being told we are different we can finally see the true enemy. Its all those people who got a cell phone, who think that is what life is all about. They think the big ticket is right around the corner and that is why they support people with things they will never have. When you no longer want what they have to offer life gets better. Poverty is freedom and what you do have has more meaning. Going to work and not having to be an evil person to do my job is more important then what you pay me. Not selling your poison frees my conscience. Standing opposed to liars may cost me a few opportunities but your lies would have caught up with me any way. I am sure that what comes around will haunt their children in the future when poverty arrives for them. By the way this is already happening, greed has no limits and it has stolen the wealth of a lot of people who believed that they were not less fortunate. The poor only got poorer and you can not get much poorer but they were better prepared.

      Black people are not monolithic. There are many of us who are articulate, highly educated, and middle to upper class. Black people represent every microosm and substrata of society. Black people are people like everyone else. One size definitely DOESN'T fit all. Madame Guinevere said it BEST.

      Wow so much negativity. I do not see color as you do. I just see a person that is trying to get by just like the rest of us. Division starts from within. Love also starts within.
