Look at Mrs.King, front and center.
From these days to the rallies for Trayvon Martin and everything in between, Black women have been out front supporting Black men. At home and in the streets. Sitting in the audience for graduations and awards ceremonies and in the gallery at court hearings, we’ve been there for our fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, neighbors and those we don’t even know.
That’s why I get so sick and angry when I see those images depicting Black women as unsupportive, loveless harpies. When stupid men throw that tired and ignorant untruth of us not being there for them around with their words and wack graphics, they are basically spitting in the face of every Black woman that ever loved/stood up/laid down/sacrificed for them. Starting with their own Grandma and Mama.

whooooo YES
folks dare fix their mouths to down us but let some shit go awry for a man of color. i guarantee you that black women will still be the main ones leading the charges for justice 

First thanks to all the comments. I am very proud of our heritage…it speaks volumes about what type of people Black women are. However, I have no interest in selling a concept that this type of devotion should continue unabated without some form of reciprocal support. I believe if Black men were giving as good as they get things would be better in Black America. Not perfect, not divine, not unblemished with no hardships or shortcomings but definitely better. Black women should not be badgered or shamed into co-signing on destructive behaviors. Ride or Die but for God’s sake not on things that will only continue to destroy the collective and leave ruin and failure as the legacy for all that follow you.
