**Before I started writing for this site, I used to do a editorial/commentary on various things in the world of Hip-Hop, and I'd like to extend that column to this website where it is more fitting.
I know I am about to sound like a big feminist when I say this – then I'm going to sound like a racist, or better let be labeled the “angry black woman” but before you be so quick to judge hear me out.
Now, once before, I heard the rumors that Polow the Don didn't like black girls…but you know, I just dismissed the allegations with saying that everyone is entitled to their opinion.
But when I read the article of him on AllHipHop.com and saw what he said about black women, I was immediately outraged. This is what he had to say:
AllHipHop.com: Now, you call yourself the “King of All White Girls.” Elaborate on that for me.
Polow Da Don: Just the â€œKing of the White Girls.â€ I ain't self proclaimed but I run with it. [Laughs] There was a stage in my life where I went crazy with dating white women. I have nothing against black women, but theyâ€™re raised differently. White women are raised to respect and serve their men. Black women are taught to question [their men]. Black women look at submission as being weak. White women look at submission as being a woman. And anyone who has a problem with this statement is ignorant. Just look at the divine order; it goes man, woman, child.
… um… excuse me? Ain't yo momma black? Then, aren't you black? Again, I know this racisim is about to kick into factor but please note that I am far from it. It just pisses me off as a BLACK person first and a BLACK woman secondly to hear other BLACK MEN speak down to us when it is the BLACK WOMAN who supports your BLACK @$$ and deals with your BLACK SH*T and can relate to you as in what it means to be BLACK. Don't try to play me (or us) because WE as BLACK WOMEN have gotten sick of tolerating your bullsh*t. Obviously, he just wants a “yes ma'am” or a “jellyback” broad – meaning anyone who can't stand up for themselves and defend themselves out of fear for being left alone.
Black women, I applaud you and respect your gangsta demeanor. Take a stand. Say a couple of “hell no's!” and question your man. If he's your man, then that's your divine right to question him. Relationships are 50 -50, and I don't know what pre-woman's suffrage area he's living in but BLACK WOMAN faught hard for the rights that his momma have, his grandmomma have, and great grandmomma have. Then to say, “White women look at submission as being a woman.” Child boo. Being a woman is handling her business on her own. Being a woman is raising a family by herself. Being a woman is not being afraid to challenge those who “think” they have power (even if it's the black man). And before I piss anybody else off, let me say this: Being a woman is not eagle scopin' a ballin' @$$ dude, laying up with up, poppin' out babies, stay with him for a few years, and living comfortably off of that divorce settlement she's getting. (look at the history of interracial marriages in the world of entertainment in comparison to the history of solid racial marriages). From a personal perspective, this irritates me. How can you lay up with a woman that would sleep with you and then lie and say she was raped, watch you get lynched, and/or beat? Who was washing the blood off yo back, buddy? It damn sure wasn't her white @$$….
I don't know about you all and how you all stand, but when I see prosperous black men saying such negative things like this about black women, hell yeah, I get offended. And sadly, we're the ones dancing to his beats up in the damn clubs. *Tisk* – he just lost one!
