How Low Will Some Black Men Go?

The biggest chuckle I get from the "angry black woman" stereotype is the fact that people say that phrase as if black women have absolutely nothing to ever be angry about. Not only do we have to endure racism and sexism, but we have to deal with the dumb ass actions of black men. I thought this article was a joke, but it was horrifically serious. I really don't care if you want to be freak in the privacy of your own home, but the very fact that you would be willing to let this story appear in a major magazine floors me.

What were these brothers thinking? The fact that any black black man would allow their racial identity and sexuality to be used in such a racist and amoral fashion just boils my blood. These kinds of actions are just pointless and have no value. Where is the dignity?

What article is this??? And WTF for good measure. Love who you love but don't forget your own story in this country. My God!

Not low enough apparently. And they believe orgies/playing out stereotypes will help to improve race relations? I'm scratching my head on that one...

Wow! All I have to say is these people are engaging in some seriously harmful pathologies.

Professor Tracey,

I wrote a post a month ago about "Black Masculinity and Its Impact on Black Women" and I wrote that the white slave owner's wife reinforced in the black male slave a phallocentric identity.... and now this article you have presented proves my assertion.

I wrote that the white slave owner's wife viewed the black male slave as submhuman chattel...a beast with a penis. Not ONE black man who read that post refuted that observation...

I am not sure why any black woman would get angry about this base behavior when black men don't get angry at black men for this behavior. Why must we own or even internalize the black man's pathologies? Tell me, why should I be upset?

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

I believe that they are low self esteem having men who cannot handle their counterparts.

I was going to abstain from posting because I'm simply horrified.

As a gay black man, I find the entire escorting and personal fantasy scene disgusting. It is also illegal. This is why people call themselves swingers when they are really engaging in prostitution.

The fact that white people are mostly Johns somehow legitimizes this awful practice and the black men who "use what they got to get what they want" are just as much to blame.

Bisexual, Gay, Straight, or Asexual, the practice is filthy and I hope all parties are using condoms, because I know that most do not.

BTW, Professor Tracey, I think DICK-nity would have been a great pun at the end of your post. *LOL*

A Choice Of Weapons - That was my first thought.

Black Girl - Not low enough indeed!

Torrance - I think that's what the Lord is saying too!

Quarter-Life-Crisis - Agreed!

Blk Sea Goat - Lawd boy stop! LOL!

Lisa -

I would agree with you about black women not wasting their time getting angry, but for the fact that black women get placed in situations where this crap comes up.

Details is a white male magazine and there are too many black women working in predominantly white and male spaces. This kind of crap gets chuckled about in the workplace and the black woman has to sit there and hear it.

Black men can kick us to the curb when our behaviors are embarrassing, they are men and get more credibility. Black women are always joined at the hip with black men, no matter what happens.

hi Professor Tracey-

i guess i have lived in los angeles for too long. it doesn't shock nor anger me in the least. these males wouldn't appeal to me on any level so their prostitution in order to be in close proximity to white folks makes sense.

i think it interesting that the plight that black women have endured for centuries black men are now willingly and willfully subjecting themselves to...not just american men either.

it strikes me as really disgusting. different strokes for different folks i guess. no pun intended.

Lisa, i too have noticed that quite a few black men have no problem being depicted as mindless sexual beasts---i guess it goes hand in hand with the all black men have big penises lie and they definitely don't want to squash that non sense:-) my theory!

blessings,

This is a hot mess.

Can we all say HIV???

This story is extremely disturbing. How can people cheapen the institution of marriage to the point where there are no boundaries?

This is obviously a prostitution ring. They (meaning the black men) will soon be arrested. You can not convince me that they are partaking in such debauchery for sport of it.

Yes, many Black men seem to revel in disgusting racial stereotypes. Notice how a number of them when approaching women, excuse my language, offer d*ck cuz they feel they have nothing else to offer? Is that not self-hatred?
