A Heated Debate

A very nice looking couple

I'm currently in England. I'm on my tour of Africa with a few European countries sprinkled in the mix. Tomorrow I will be in the Netherlands and then Paris before heading to Ethiopia. 

I've been in England for two days. Yesterday I hooked up with a friend who is currently studying abroad in England (She's getting a PH.D in English literature). Anyway, me and this friend met at a deli. We sat and talked for about an hour. In that time I disclosed that I'm thinking of asking my girlfriend (Sapphire) to marry me. This friend was excited for me....until she found out she is white. This little fact was revealed to her when I showed her a picture of Sapphire on my phone. 

I tell you no lie. You could feel the tension grow between us. Bashfully, I stuck my phone in my pocket and waited for her to say something. She didn't disappoint. 

Friend: I never thought I would see the day you would be thinking about marrying a WHITE woman!

Me: Neither did I...but it's happening. 

Friend: Why? There are plenty of black women available. 

Me: Actually, no. In my 30 years on this earth I haven't run across this platoon of childless, single, educated, fun, loving, beautiful, in-shape black women...not in Atlanta. I haven't run across this platoon of black lesbians who are comfortable in their own skin, who don't come to the table with a hand full of kids. I'm not willing to keep looking for a needle in a haystack when I have a nice woman who is down for me. I don't care if she is white. She treats me right and I'm happy with her. 

Friend: So, you're settling?

Me: I don't see it that way. I would be settling if I lowered my standards and took up with women who have the characteristics I just described to you. "Sapphire" is warm, friendly, cultured, childless, fun, loving, and beautiful. I asked for a good woman....I ended up with a great woman. I would be a fool to let her go based on her race. For a long time I searched for my ideal "black" woman and I came up empty The same qualities I like in Sapphire I looked for in black women. Over and over again I found myself disappointed. I'm not saying there aren't any black women who fit the bill. I'm saying I haven't met those women and I'm not willing to continue searching for them when I have a good woman. I'm not justifying my relationship with Sapphire. The only justification for it is love....and I'll leave it at that. When I stopped looking at race I finally found what I was looking for and I couldn't be happier. 

Our conversation carried on like that and ultimately ended with me say, "I hope you will find it in your heart to be happy for me. I would hate to lose your friendship...."

The Continuation of Sweat

I have started working on Sweat again. I took a break to regather my thoughts about the series. Now I'm back on my grind. I apologize for the delay. This break was much needed. Look out for the next chapter going soon and the website.

My Life At The Moment...

Here is a summary of what has been happening in my life...

-On May 13, 2015 I was involved in a car accident. Someone hit me hard from behind on highway 285. I have a bad case of whiplash, back pain, neck pain, and my left arm randomly goes numb. I'm currently in physical therapy. 
-I hired a lawyer to go after the bastard that hit me. He gone pay what he owe.
-I'm thinking of asking Sapphire to marry me. 
-Today I bought tickets for me and Sapphire to attend Motown the Musical. No words can express how excited I am. 

That's about it.

I'm Willing To Bet...

In case you haven't been keeping track, WNBA star Brittney Griner married fellow WNBA star Glory Johnson. This happened shortly after it was reported that the two of them came to blows and were arrested for domestic violence. Then yesterday (or the day before) it was reported that Glory Johnson is pregnant. Today it was reported that Brittney Griner is seeking an annulment. So, the chain of events looks like this....

Ass whoppings all around---> Make up/get hitched----> Baby on the way--->Fuck this shit I want out!

How much do you want to bet that Brittney had NOTHING to do with the conception of the baby? How much do you want to bet that she didn't even know her wife was pregnant? How much do you want to bet that her wife was out fucking a man? How much do you want to bet this is why Brittney now wants out?

I can almost imagine Brittney's face upon learning that her new wife is pregnant...

Glory: Baby, I got something to tell you. 

Brittney: What is it boo?

Glory: Baby, I'm pregnant.

Brittney: Say what?!?

Glory: We're going to have a baby!

Brittney: Bitch...we know it ain't mine! Oh hell naw! It's time for you to sign those gawdamn papers!

Next stop for Brittney...

The path of least resistance, least bullshit, and least baggage (i.e.,confusion, bisexuality, out of wedlock children)....

A white woman.

This Was Very Good...

Yesterday I watched this really good lesbian movie called I Can't Think Straight. Sapphire introduced me to the movie and I must say I enjoyed it....not simply because it is a lesbian movie, but because it shows two lesbians of color (they look middle eastern to me) in love. It is nice to see two women who share the same racial background (I think) paired together rather than the usual twist of white supremacy that involves pairing a woman of color with a white woman. This is what I want to see from black lesbian entertainment. I want to see two feminine black women engaged in a functional loving relationship with each other. 

I enjoyed this movie so much that I purchased the book that shares the same title off Amazon. If you wish to watch the movie you can do so for free by heading over to Hulu. I tried to embed the video on my blog but it wouldn't stick. However, here is the link to the video.

Oh and P.S....I changed the comment feature on my blog (Disqus). In order to comment now you must verify your email address, which means you have to register for an account with Disqus. It helps keep the trolls off my site.

Proof That I'm Not Crazy...

Take a look at the chart above. This chart comes from a survey that was done in 2012 by American Community Survey. As you can see black lesbians were the most likely group to be raising children at 48% which is damn near double that of white lesbians (25%).

Does anyone want to guess how those children came to be (i.e., one of the lesbians at some point was involved with a man as opposed to the two lesbians planning a family together)?

I'm willing to bet 99% of that 48% comes from one of the lesbians being involved with a man at some point.

Next chart...

Notice how Georgia (the state where I live) is deep in the blue. A closer glance at the chart reveals that in  Atlanta (and surrounding  areas) 79%-100% of African American same sex couples are raising their own children (note "own" children are never-married children under 18 who are sons or daughters of one partner or spouse by birth, marriage (stepchild), or adoption).

This means that women like me who are looking for childless black women are pretty much assed out!

The next time I want to come on MY blog and rant about the fucked up situation in the black community, and in Atlanta, I don't want to hear a damn thing from my haters that says otherwise.
