You said: "Black boys are DELIBERATELY AND SYSTEMATICALLY TAKEN FROM THEIR FATHERS' INFLUENCE AND CONTROL BY WOMEN WHO CARE ONLY ABOUT BEING 'STRONG BLACK WOMEN' AND WHO ARE BRAINWASHED BY FEMINIST TO TREAT BLACK MEN ANY WAY THE CHOOSE. Ironically and paradoxically, the same 'feminist' white women who have filled the heads of sisters with propaganda of abortion, divorce, 'strongism,' and materialism over raising good children and keeping families together....THESE WHITE WOMEN ARE THE SAME ONES RUNNING AFTER BLACK MEN."
White feminist are not the instructors of strong, more independent minded black women. It is not even fair to call the Black woman’s response to being abandoned, beaten, and generally treated badly by males who lack self-esteem and self-respect as being brainwashed by white feminists. Many black females are left to raise children on their own while the males are in prison, through no direct fault of their own. The black females who chase after the white ideals are met with black males who chase these same ideals. You are not making a fair case here at all.
You said: "When our young men are kept from their fathers...and when Black men are chased from their homes because some Black women can kowtow to their boses and their white girlfriends and the system of white supremacy/racism but cannot take the advice of their Black husbands...WHO DO YOU BLAME?"
Most males are not in any position to condemn women today as they generally casually accepted male domination instead of informing themselves and addressing their low self-esteem. Black women cannot be accused of systematically chasing black males from their homes. I would like to see the evidence of this. I am not saying that women do not share blame for contributing to racism and colorism but so too do most males.
You said: "The fact is, Black boys need their fathers' guidance and THOSE OF US RAISED IN THE AFRICANIST AND BLACK POWER SIXTIES AND SEVENTIES HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT WAY OF TRAINING OUR BOYS WHEN THEY ARE IN OUR CARE. We raise them to be proud to be Black because as Black men (unlike Black women) the tools of racism and genocide is heavy on our backs. Therefore, we train our sons to be tough, strong and hard. We raise them to be prepared for the world, just as our grandfathers raised the last generation of men who started the Civil Rights and Black Revolutionary struggle in the US in the sixties."
You seem to forget that women were part of the Panthers and all these 'revolutionary' black movements. And if, as you said, males prepared the next generation for the world, during the sixties and seventies, and now you are complaining about women today, you have to admit that males have not done a very good job. Maybe if the males were aware of the strength of informed black women and they supported them to be partners and leaders in the struggle, you may have a different story to tell today. Although women were active in earlier black movements, we can admit that the male was the dominant figure. The boy's club attitude was/is still around. I am not laying blame on anyone back then per se, it is just your analysis seems very lopsided.
There are women on the forum so I would leave the rest.
