Stuff Educated Black Women Hate

A terse list, here goes it.

Tacky Christmas decorations, Tiffany “New York” Patterson, racism, video vixens who write tell-all books, any music/movie/television show that sets the race back several decades, rain, baby mama drama (maybe a baby mama, but definitely no drama), Black female reality tv characters who perpetuate stereotypes, gold teeth, singledom, technicolor weaves, Black men who exclusively date non-Black women, being labeled as angry, stereo types, chitterlings, run over shoes, anything that can be labeled as trite, ‘bama, or ghetto, men who have no business approaching them but do so anyways, BET (with the exception of the BET awards), gangster rap, kanekelon hair, condoleeza rice, war in Iraq, genocide in Sudan, HIV/AIDS epidemic, Nelly’s “Tip Drill” music video, the “down low” phenomena, any EBW who is flyer than them, long acrylic nails/claws, the fact that Kara Saun didn’t win Project Runway, Kobe Bryant, the so called “achievement gap”, Toni Childs departure from ‘Girlfriends’, Soul Food being canceled, the American prison system, the ratio of available black women to available black men, finger waves, cheap men, public pools, and their mother’s opinion.

This was great FFD. I just discovered your blog via Gina's What About Our Daughters blog. I will be back to visit you. Peace, Ananda

PS: I would like to send you an email request about my debut novel, Love's Troubadours - Karma: Book One. It tells the story of a thirtysomething BoHo BAP who lived and worked in NYC as a museum curator. She lost her job and moved to DC.

Hi! I just want to say I like your blog aswell. I'll be visiting again :)

I too noticed a growing number of young educated blacks in my parts love to go to the movies during the week oppose to the weekends. I don’t blame them.

Why is Condi Rice on this list? Because she is a Republican?

If so, then that is sad.

No, Condi Rice is not on this blog because she is a Republican. Condi Rice is on this blog because she has committed the unforgivable sin of representing educated black women on INTERNATIONAL television without doing her hair.....more than once.

...and contributing to several of the disasters in US forein affairs listed on this list as well. Let's keep it real. Even if she was against the war personally, she is Bush's right hand (wo)man.
