Yeah....and how BIG of him and NOBLE of him to say so.wesley said: "I know we've all been hurt, and we're all very wounded," he says, addressing Black women. "We have to acknowledge that, both male and female, in the Black experience. "
I wonder what that large list of jazz musicians, somewith several white wives andsome who felt comfortable to leave the Black community and go live in the fatherland continent of white folks,Yeah....and how BIG of him and NOBLE of him to say so.
...Right before he listed/described all the ills of Black women.
Well, since you "wonder" about it so much, GO FIND IT.I wonder what that large list of jazz musicians, somewith several white wives andsome who felt comfortable to leave the Black community and go live in the fatherland continent of white folks,
I wonder what they had to say about Black women?
just ask a question, no time for negative flame wars thaat have no endWell, since you "wonder" about it so much, GO FIND IT.
GO FIND any statements Oscar Peterson said about Black women or any other musicians, etc.. who married White women.
STOP "WONDERING" and GO FIND any support for yourself.
But, I have supplied Wesley's own words.
So, no one has to "WONDER" about what he said.
And therein also lies the problem.and therein lies the problem....
i would never be with anyone other than a black woman
but i know exactly what he is talking about....
it is hubris on any black womans part not to find any truth to what he said nicely....
I tried and I've tried to stay out of this convo..but at-last I can no longer. I read that interviewer over and over so see exactly what you Sisters and Brothers were talking about. First of all we all re-act to our own life experiences..no matter what we have read or how much we have studied..it is life's experiences that form us, makes us who we are..the good and the bad......This whole interview read like Wesley was smiling and winking at the interviewer as he spoke.
So, it's one thing to choose another race; but it's another to insultingly describe the women of your own race as females who (A) DON'T READ (B) ARE FULL OF DRAMA (C) AREN'T PLEASING TO A BLACK MAN and (D) just aren't KIND, COMFORTING AND NICE.
