no lies detected tho. remember when i said this was the case, someone tried to try me and say it was heart disease. but they too blinded to do the right looking to find the statistics that prove it true. i mean, we got a lot of rightful outrage over white ppl killing Black boys but not for Black men killing Black women and girls.

where are the statistics that prove this? cause i googled it and all i found were message boards and a conservative site that back this up which is not factual.

I can think of four BW in my family rn off the top of my head whose SO caused their deaths…

BY THE NUMBERS
The Violence Policy Center in Washington, D.C., found these facts in its 2012 report of 2010 domestic violence statistics for black women:
94 percent of black womenkilled by men in single victim/single offender incidents knew their killers.
Nearly 15 times as many black women were murdered by a man they knew than were killed by a stranger.
64 percent of black victimswho knew their offenders were wives, ex-wives or girlfriends of the offenders.
The number of black women shot and killed by their husband or intimate partner was nearly five times as high as the total number murdered by strangers using all weapons combined.
That is from the article ^^
In 1999, homicide was the third leading cause of injury-related death for all women (pregnant or not pregnant) of reproductive age, 15 to 44 years of age, after deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents and suicide, and it was the second leading cause of injury-related death among women aged 15 to 24 years and among Black women of reproductive age.1 Moracco and Runyan reported the highest homicide rate occurring among women under the age of 35 and found that the homicide rate for Black women (15.8 per 100 000) was more than 3 times higher than that for White women (4.3 per 100 000).2
^^ this is from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1449204/ and is related to 1999 but also pregnant Black women especially.
http://www.idvaac.org/media/publications/FactSheet.IDVAAC_AAPCFV-Community%20Insights.pdf
here is another source about IPV and homicide rates. rates have declined, as the article onelittlegee linked to also stated but more so for Black men than Black women and the rates have changed to an increase in Black women being killed more by Black men rather than vice versa. 
also another report by the department of health pennsylvania also states homicide is the top killer for both Black men and Black women ages 15-24. Black men are generally killing other Black men. Black men are also killing Black women. this isn’t saying Black men are more prone to violence, simply that the violence we have experienced as a race has led to some fucked up misogyny that hurts Black women in ways that lead to death at a Black man’s hands, at a young ass age. 
^^ i found this source, which is a free downloadable PDF, 9 sources down out of 10 in a google search of black women top killer homicide ages 15 to 35, the site starts as portal.gov something or other.

Someone on my dash was just arguing with that kush coon about this. He said it was an attack on black men and blah blah blah and proceeded to degrade black women more… Well here it is.

Soooo stating facts is bashing black men?

^^^with the black men i know? Hell everything is an attack on them

What woman doesn’t want a guy that slut shames her, chokes her, makes her lie for him, puts her in the hospital, and makes sex tapes of her?  I mean isn’t that what we all want in man and a husband?  I know I do.  I just wish I could find me a Jake Ballard.

None of this shit is funny.

All of this is self hate.

All of this is dehumanizing.

All of this is foolish ignorance.

This is not only disgusting, but appalling as well; exactly how can we succeed as a community when you put down the very women who bring you up?

These “men” are children.

If you do not support black women, you do not support black power. Black power is not just for black men. If you do not support black women.. Congratulations! You have ‘slave mentality’.

The hatred of black women is taught by the white oppressor, older generations of black men, the media, and at some times other black women. As a whole, we cannot grow as a community if you HATE more then half of it.

Often when colorism is discussed in the black community, men and some women attribute darker skin as manly and attach racial slurs (non reclaim) to them.

Having malice towards darker skin does not make you above any person, and just to set the record straight: DATING, MARRYING, or FUCKING a white woman does not make you closer to the white man. You are black, that is who you are and that is who you will be, that is your identifier. NO MATTER where you will go you are black. You ancestors and your grandparents fought for the right to love one another.

So let me ask you this:
Is your mother an ugly monkey?
Is your sister an illiterate darkie?
Is your DAUGHTER, with skin the color of gold tier melanin UNWORTHY of human love and emotion? Should she be subject to the hate you spew from you ignorant lips? Are her tears useless, because she inherited YOUR skin?

For those who participate in such behavior, what is your skin tone? 9/10 they are as dark if not darker then the women they belittle.

This ignorance has got to STOP, if not for our current  generation…. Then the next.

- Susie, the Moderator who is sick of seeing self hate destroy her own community.

The fetishism of lighter skinned POC and the colorism between POC needs to stop.

Not only is this prevalent in the black/African community, but in all communities (except white) from Asia to Latin America.

- it’s Susie again

Ignorant as fuck.

Absolutely shameful

Cyber-Dys-Punk-Topia

“There was a place near an airport, Kowloon, when Hong Kong wasn’t China, but there had been a mistake, a long time ago, and that place, very small, many people, it still belonged to China. So there was no law there. An outlaw place. And more and more people crowded in; they built it up, higher. No rules, just building, just people living. Police wouldn’t go there. Drugs and whores and gambling. But people living, too. Factories, restaurants. A city. No laws.

William Gibson, Idoru

It was the most densely populated place on Earth for most of the 20th century, where a room cost the equivalent of US$6 per month in high rise buildings that belonged to no country. In this urban enclave, “a historical accident”, law had no place. Drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes lived and worked alongside kindergartens, and residents walked the narrow alleys with umbrellas to shield themselves from the endless, constant dripping of makeshift water pipes above….

Kowloon ‘Walled’ City lost its wall during the Second World War when Japan invaded and razed the walls for materials to expand the nearby airport. When Japan surrendered, claims of sovereignty over Kowloon finally came to a head between the Chinese and the British. Perhaps to avoid triggering yet another conflict in the wake of a world war, both countries wiped their hands of the burgeoning territory.

And then came the refugees, the squatters, the outlaws. The uncontrolled building of 300 interconnected towers crammed into a seven-acre plot of land had begun and by 1990, Kowloon was home to more than 50,000 inhabitants….

Despite earning its Cantonese nickname, “City of Darkness”, amazingly, many of Kowloon’s residents liked living there. And even with its lack of basic amenities such as sanitation, safety and even sunlight, it’s reported that many have fond memories of the friendly tight-knit community that was “poor but happy”.

“People who lived there were always loyal to each other. In the Walled City, the sunshine always followed the rain,” a former resident told the South China Morning Post….

Today all that remains of Kowloon is a bronze small-scale model of the labyrinth in the middle a public park where it once stood.

This isn’t to say places like Kowloon Walled City no longer exist in Hong Kong….

WHY DIDN’T THEY TEACH YOU ABOUT THIS IN HISTORY CLASS?

The Christian Movement for Life, aka, MOVE

  • a pro-green, vegan, anti-technology group
  • living in a house in West Philadelphia
  • BOMBED by the Philly PD, from the air, on May 13, 1985
  • YES, 1985!!!
  • the city killed 11 people (5 children), burned down 65 homes in a Black, middle-class, West Philly neighborhood, and caused $50,000,000.00 damage - all to “evict” the group and recover two shotguns
  • You know of Mumia Abu-Jamal (3rd photo from bottom) but did you know he was affiliated with MOVE?
  • Ramona Africa (2nd photo from bottom) and one child survived
  • MOVE leader John Africa was murdered that day

This was not the ONLY time an American city was bombed, btw. The first time, it was ALSO whites bombing Black people. And you want to talk about TERRORISM??? 

And what else don’t you know about your country and it’s treatment of Black people?

Get to Googling… AND Youtubing…

The US government dropped a bomb on a row house in a major American city and no one ever seems to mention it
