We see the daily "black men ain't ish" rally on Twitter, and how it's a circlejerk of scorned BW shytting on black men.
I was reading the thread about the Nigerian chick who completely fabricated an Angela Davis quote about heterosexual black men, and I got to thinking.
How come black men don't have a platform to respond to the lies & accusations?
In the Twitter thread there were black men & some black women saying that the quote was completely false and not even real. The others simply ignored them. I noticed in a lot of Twitter threads about black men being trash it's all angry women & gay nikkas, and the few dudes trying to expose the lies and shed light on the truth either get completely ignored, blocked from the conversation, the others Juelz around the topic & talk in circles, or verbally abused until they leave the chat. I also noticed the same thing reading the comment section of YouTube videos.
In real life, all the black men I know don't give a rat's behind about the negative social media discourse, but I recently was at a Black Student Union meeting at my school and the girls were talking about "problematic" interaction between BM & BW. Keep in mind that there were 4 black dudes including myself & 33 black girls, and 3 of us were only there for the free food. I didn't say anything, I was on my phone looking at a thread about the NFL Draft in the Coliseum. So my question is this: how come we (BM) don't respond to the criticism? Is it that we don't care? Or we feel overwhelmed? Or is it a different reason?
