In light of the disturbing misogyny directed at black women through the practice of calling them bitches and hoes, I think everyone should watch this video to understand why it’s an undeserving invective. Such defamatory epithets should never be spoken about a woman, even if she is portraying herself as such. Instead of reinforcing it, teach her about the lineage of her queenliness and present to her examples that don’t include the unsophisticated raunchiness of Ms. New York from Flava Flav’s show Flavor of Love or the video vixen, Karrine Steffans, all women who embarrassingly degrade themselves, in my opinion. Also, remind the men that it was a woman who brought them into the world; the same woman who may have also suffered the same undeserving tongue-lashing of being called a bitch and ho. Institute in their minds that women are to be crowned instead of stoned with those cruel words, and that black culture doesn’t need to portray that negativity through media, music, and urban living. Let’s stop this demeaning mentality; the same ignorant mentality of New York Knicks’ Coach, Isaiah Thomas, who said he wouldn't stand for a white man calling a black woman a "bitch" - but wouldn't be as angry if the same words came from the mouth of a black man. That double standard mentality is absolutely backwards and simply wrong; a poor representation for the young generation who is being fed this nonsense. Let’s put an end to this. Watch this video, and become enlightened.
