Interested Reader: Hey Satan! I’ve recently stumbled across a subgroup of black women on the Internet called the BWE. What exactly are they?
Satanforce: Black Women’s Empowerment is a subculture of black women that believe in separating from the black community, which they view as a cesspool of nihilism and death, by intermarrying with white men. Or by learning parkour.
Interested Reader: Oh damn! Why do they feel this way?
Satanforce: Haven’t you heard? Black men beat, rape, sodomize. cheat on, disrespect, publicly humiliate, pimp, divorce and abandon black women at a rate unseen in any other race of men! But when it comes to other races of women, well – they know how to behave themselves!. Just look at the first Presidents of Senegal, Angola, Nigeria and Botswana, C.L.R. James, Cheikh Ante Diop, Richard Wright, James Farmer, W.E.B DuBois, Thurgood Marshall….. At the same time, they use black women as sacrificial mules for their little ‘movements ‘ , using black women’s labour for their own personal advancement, and to gain access to… a better class of woman.

Interested Reader: I’ve been reading some of these BWE blogs/websites, and boy, they are full of jargon like DBR, rainbeau, and NBAB! What does it all mean?
Satanforce: Damaged Beyond Repair (DBR) Refers to all (and only) black men. The idea is the for whatever reason, black men who are not these women’s kin are troubled misogynists, who are verbally abusive at best and serial rapists [insert white male police link] at worst. This is of course, backed up using confirmation bias ad highly circumstantial statistics.
It stands for Damaged Beyond Repair. TM Evia’s blog. Which is a person, usually a male who brings new meaning to word dysfunctional and takes out his inferiority complex and pain on unsuspecting (usually black) women. So a DBR isn’t always racially or gender based. It’s about the behavior, but the behavior tends to be displayed mostly by black males – because of all of the above
Rainbeau – A handsome non-black (but almost always white) man who is interested in an interracial relationship with a black woman. A portmanteau of Rainbow and beau.
Mammy/Sista Souljah – One of the fundamental doctrines of the BWE is that black woman handicap and martyr themselves at the altar of the black community and black men. They see these women as being caught in a trap set by black men, who use black women to fight on their behalf while castigate black women for this “fact” by condemning black women who have anything good to say about black men, or participate in civil rights as “mammies” and “Sista Souljahs.”
Guardian of all Things Dark and Lovely (GATDL) – A person or organization (eg. Abagond,Jim Crow Museum) that refutes the stereotypes about blacks through empirical, statistical or rational arguments, while at the same time taking pride in their blackness. The phrase is of course, used sarcastically.
Nothing but a brother (NBAB) – a designation given to black women whose relationships are exclusively with black men, and who enthusiastically avoid white men. The BWE ‘movement’ sees these women as a threat to their cause, as they put out the message that black women wish to have nothing to do with white, I mean , non-black men.
Interested Reader: Okay, I’m understanding now. But why do they feel that white men would be interested in them?
Satanforce: Ah! Enter the movement’s bible – Is Marriage for White People? By Ralph Richard Banks! Just by the subtitle “Get you a white man ’cause niggas ain’t shit”, you can see that this book captures the attitude of the BWE ‘movement’ perfectly! The main point is that black women (in the United States) have so outstripped their male counterparts in terms of achievements that they should look to white, I mean non-black men for relationships. Black women are more likely to marry down, when they should be marrying out (of the race.) Just look at the statistics! Twice as many black women are college graduates! And all the “good black men” are dead, in jail, gay, or worse, with a white, I mean non-black woman.
Interested Reader: I just skimmed through his book and Amazon and, well, he seems to have a point. There are definitely more than enough white men (in America) for every black woman and the relationship market is definitely messed up for black women who want black men on their level. Why should black women be held hostage to black men’s failures? I mean, these guys just go around getting black women pregnant and then abandoning them with their children? Why shouldn’t they abandon those losers and marry outside their race?
Satanforce: This is going to take some work.
- There may be more than enough white men for every black woman, but there aren’t enough white men for every white women. In fact, while black women outnumber black men by 1.9 million, white women outnumber white men by 4.6 million. That’s some competition.
- There is a counter study that debunks many of the “memes” that have been floating around about black men. Rich black men DO NOT overwhelmingly marry outside of their race, they are not significantly out-earned by their female counterparts, and college educated black women are actually more likely to be married than their less educated peers.
- The idea that black men are two legged penises screwing down the damn place then running away removes any sense of responsibility from black women. Yes, black men shouldn’t be having sex without protection, but when black women have modern medical technology that allows them control of their reproductive system before, during and after intercourse, they have no excuse. They literally hold the keys to the castle.
- Relationships are not some interaction between supply and demand. Too assume that would require one to make essentialist claims that fail to take into consideration the unique traits and individual characteristics of one’s partner. Relationships require work and time, not stereotypes and how-to books.
Interested Reader: Phew! I almost got caught in the Matrix there! So what do you think that the BWE should do?
Satanforce: Black woman have managed to (not undeservedly) build up a shield that effectively prevents them from being criticized. I call it the “Maury Shield.”
No matter how many times she fucks up, there’s always someone to pick her up, tell her its alright, and go after that bad old black man!! Black women do not need a million and one blogs telling them that they are beautiful and great, and wonderful. The only thing they need is to make choices and take responsibility. That is all.
Angry Black Woman responds.
Angry Black Woman: LOL Satan! You’re such a loser ! You’re just upset that you got you’re ass kicked all over the place over on Christelyn’s blog!
ABW: OK Fine! But you must admit that a black man is hardly a catch for a black woman , yes ? I mean, just look at the statistics – there are only 3 eligible black men for 100 available black women! Let me break it down for you. Its 87 black men to 100 black women, out of that 87, minus 2 black men that are gay, minus 8 black men who only want white women, minus 25 men who are felons, minus 10 blah, blah , blah….
Satanforce: That may be true, but African-American women do manage to even it out. 80 out of 100 black women are obese, leaving only 20 out of 100 black women for the majority of black men that are not chubby chasers. 37 black women are single mothers, bringing the additional burden of another man’s child into the relationship. 5 black women are in prison, 2 black women are carpet munchers, 48 black women have herpes, and 6 black women are HIV positive. So that leaves -78 black women for every 100 black men.
ABW: Wait a minute! That doesn’t make any sense? Some of those results are going to overlap! And what were the years that those studies took place? Where did those studies take place? What were the sample sizes? What is the criteria used for herpes infection? You’re messing with the statistics!!
Satanforce: I’m glad that you feel that way. Yeah you got me. But by extension, I got you too. That’s what we get for using various data sources with overlapping statistics. The correct set of statistics can be found here.
ABW: Yeah whatever. But you must admit that more and more black women are leaving black men and the decrepit black community for, ahem greener pastures, yeah?
Satanforce: Perhaps. But I doubt that their motives are as clear as you say. I can thin of a few reasons why black women would want to cling to your little “movement”, as well as how you are counting black women who may have motives not having to do with your agenda.
- Including men who want to fuck black women but not want to marry them.
- Pumping up the numbers to include “low value” white men who may be married, un/deremployed, less educated, or traditionally unattractive. One need only look at the panoply of literature that make sport of white male underachievers.
- Including Black women who do NOT have issues with black men even though they may have noo sexual or romantic interest inn black women
- Holding black men to lower standards than white men
- Women who use the BWE as a shield because they are afraid of being attacked by black people who do not approve of their relationship
ABW: Anything else?
Satanforce: Black women who just want sex from white men.
ABW: I was being sarcastic.
Satanforce: Sure. Don’t forget black women who use white men as sugar daddies.
Satanforce: No. No one was up in arms when Angela Basset co-starred with Ralph Fiennes in “Strange Days”. I still read G. Pascal Zachary’s articles, especially after he married a Nigerian woman and moved to Ghana with her. What we dislike is the blatant pleasure you all seem to get at the thought of a poor black man or a fat black woman failing. That’s the rub. You seem to believe in getting a white man and a graduate degree, not as measuring rod for personal success, but as a beating stick for those who you feel are lesser than you. The truth is, the only thing that anyone needs to feel good about themselves is the ability to make choices and take responsibility. You don’t need a white man, or any one else to make you feel good, and certainly don’t need to demonize black men feel good about yourself either. All you need do is be yourself, and love yourself. That is all.
