The substitution of black women in the black framework
Most black men are ready, quick and willing to substitute any other woman for black women within black female historical roles as mothers of the black race, partners in the struggle for emancipation and the building of a black culture, or their place in creating and enjoying black wealth and infrastructure - there is a strong argument that black men are happy for black women to labour to create wealth but not to partake when the rewards of their labour start coming in, which is the point when many black men feel they need to substitute black women for others. Black women seem interchangeable with any other women even when it comes to 'sacred black things', for black men while at the same time black women overwhelmingly insist that certain 'black things' cannot be done without the participation of black men.
I was recently watching a program about the first black bookshop/printing house in London (as October past is black history month in the UK). Of course the men behind it were 'black nationalist' who went up and don the land talking about white oppression and white washing of black history and contribution. But who did these men choose to partner with in this unique endeavour of building 'something black'. You guessed it, these black men choose to build 'black infrastructure' that would suggest a need for intimate black male and female partnership instead with white females.
Imagine the outrage if a white man and black women had cooperated on a very intimate black project as that project was in the days of out and out white racism and black oppression. First of all the white partner would have had to be silent and invisible for such to work. But in this case the black men went all over the country doing the critical work distributing and doing PR with the white partner in tow.
This is why the legacy of many such notable black male activists like CLR James, Bernie Grant, the much quoted Franz Fanon (who married no less than two white women in succession but spoke 'eloquently' about the desperation of black men under the boot of white oppression) just to name a few of such 'mighty' black male activist in UK, are in the hands of white women and or the children they had with them. Many now go by the nomenclature 'of African descent' because they look very removed from black that they are just not 'believable' when as black.
Black women have fooled themselves for years that they are critical and vital to black men in the building of blackness, black progress and black infrastructure, even as black men have gone out of their way to demonstrate that nothing could be further from the truth.
White people and other onlookers who are unaware of internal black gender politics see this type of cooperation between black men and white women as a wonderful expression of black and whites in harmony. Or they see the white women as being open minded and anti-racist. They very rarely see or they ignore the rejection and marginalisation of black womanhood that is clear from the activities of black men. They don't see black men are 'substituting' black women for white and others and the inherent racism in this action.
The prizing of whiter womanhood
Another feature of black male culture is the placing of premium on lighter hued women from lighter black women up to white. They do this in ways that are obvious to wider society which has picked up on on black men's obsessions. Their actions in this regard does indeed undermine black womanhood- there is no denying it- as It entrenches a negative perception of black womanhood, the reasoning being that if the men closest to black women prefer, to a very observable extent, other women (unlike men of most races), then something is obviously off with black women and their female attributes. This has been the hard to counter argument put forward by the likes of Steve Sailer as far back as the 1990's. The only way to counter this and dispel the negative cloud as a result of black men's activities is for black omen to pursue aggressively their own interracial options and show they too have broader appeal. This can be very effective if black women secure meaningful relationships with dominant males from other males which they often do.
