The Problem with African Men!


After my recent post on Why African men are so weak?, I received lot of emails and one of them included the hypothesis that “African Man is weak because the Black Woman has been made to no longer have respect for the Black man.”

The reader wrote the following message:

“A Nation whose women has been conquered and taken away from its men, leave the man without the strength of Conscious and a conscious without self condemnation, is without a quality of mind to guide in the direction that lead to self respect, freedom, justice and independence, causing the men of the nation to be weak, because of the absent of the woman that instill within the man a conscious of self determination.

In other word, the Black Afrikan Man is weak because the Black Woman has been made to no longer have respect for the Black man.

Contrary to what the oppressors have taught you about the woman being the weaker of the two genders, it is the Black Woman who once served as the strength of the Black Nation, which is why the Devil came and caused enmity to be between the Black Woman and Man, he now today, display his weakness in the face of adversity.”

To the reader, I replied the following:

“Historically, it’s the duty of men to defend their women and children against external forces.

Once a nation is conquered by foreign men, the local defeated males lose their status even in the eyes of their own women.

There is no way women would keep their respect for the defeated men who failed their people!

It’s not true that “African Man is weak because the Black Woman has been made to no longer have respect for the Black man.”

It’s the opposite, Black men lost the respect of their women the moment they fail to defend their land against outsiders, and joyfully accepted to become eunuchs, domesticated men, good to work under other men order, and house negroes!

Respect comes from deeds, not from a mere fact of having a dick!”

You see, I’ve written quite a lot about europeans responsibilities in our troubles, but I’ve also made it my duty to confront ourselves with our own responsibilities.

Most of my fellows applaud loudly when I speak about foreigners responsibilities, but most dislike when I confront them with our own failures and responsibilities.

After I posted my response as above on Facebook, I received snaring glares, and response like:

“I am a proud black man and don’t feel not respected by black women. Our black women don’t need to be our slaves in order we feel respected. But please, don’t ask me to elaborate. Let us all together black men and black women work for our freedom.”

My posts are always about the big trends in our community. If someone isolates himself or herself from the community, and therefore feels he is exceptional or is the exception to the rule, then that person could rightfully come up with comments like “Look at me. I’m not like all those black people you are talking about”.

Moreover, statement like “Let us all together black men and and women work for our freedom” is great but should not be abused, because each part of us has its role to play first. Like a man doesn’t get pregnant, Please don’t go ask our women to replace you when it comes to bringing down enemies!

African men, never fail your women and children again!

    Hell no! Don't stop talking about their cowardly black behinds..they already know themselves-spineless to the core!!!

    From my perspective, referring to our black and brown African brothers as spineless and weak doesn't mean that you should be at war 24/7. However, if you are 90% of your country's ethnic population then all the African ethnic groups within your country should stop and look around the world, because seeing is believing and knowing, then realize that your ethnic group is the foot stool for every other ethnic group on this planet. I am assuming that you all now being conscious of these facts would then come together. Then the country's ethnic groups would want to work together in common to develop a higher standard of living for Africans.

    Yet, this is not what I see happening to the whole of Africa. You're to busy fighting among yourselves unnecessarily. Your main functions should be nationlism, and development and anyone with in the African community who hinders this progress must be seen as the worse kind of traitor on the face of this earth.

      First, I would like to say, this is a very interesting blog that I’ve stumbled upon. It’s a very good perspective of the black mentality.

      Secondly, thank you for calling out black people to take accountability. This is why we are in the deplorable social and economic conditions still after we’ve become technically free from colonalization. The fact of the matter is, most people, especially blacks lack introspection to their own dysfunction. In the black community, it seems as if now it’s cool thing to be ignorant.

      Thirdly, as a light skinned black Amerucan female who grew up in a predominantly poor black neighborhood for the majority of my live, but due to my personality and looks I easily blended in with other groups, particularly whites. I said that to say this, black men have always placed the blame on black women. They don’t respect black American women or else the majority of black men wouldn’t walk away from their families. They’d have such pride, but they don’t. They have low self esteem and become effeminate because most black American men haven’t learned how to be leaders, hence black women don’t respect black men the way they should due to their behavior.

      Also, I spent my entire life being verbally and sexually harassed by black men. They terrorize their women violently by asserting themselves into young black females spaces and then violently lash out at black females when we don’t want to be bothered by them. The fact of the matter is, if a black female is growing up in a black neighborhood the majority will be constantly emotionally harassed. The distain that black men show black women starts young.

      Lastly, this is the problem. Black men don’t want to me men! All other groups take pride in being the leaders of their community and providing. I have never seen any race of man public ally humiliate their women like black men will do to black women. We all know this is true! Then they wonder why blacks aren’t respected. The predicament of ones people always rests on the man, he’s the LEADER!
