The Way Black People Treat Each Other Is Eerily Similar To How White People Treat Us……

For about a year now, I have been really focused on how Black People treat each other. We know for a fact that white people will never treat us right, but we can and need to learn to treat each other right. Black People go all day long into next week about how white people treat us like last week’s dog shit; the very extensive physical and psychological damage racism white supremacy and white privilege has wreaked upon us in the last 500 years, but Lord when its time for us to talk about how we treat each other, all of a sudden niggas can’t speak on issues like Black self-hatred, colorism a.k.a. Intra-racism, misogynoir, rape, sexual assault and molestation, classism, and many other issues bringing death and destruction to the so-called Black Community by the hand of toxic Black People. THE WAY BLACK PEOPLE TREAT EACH OTHER IS EERILY SIMILAR TO THE WAY WHITE PEOPLE TREAT US.
We’re the most disunited people on the planet, but many want to put up a fake ass unified front in front of white people and the rest of the world. Even when we join together in organizing and implementing civil rights movements, we are still dis-unified. I discussed that in more detail  here. Like I said before, it’s just sad and pathetic. Many of us treat each other like pure shit based on skin tone, looks, gender, class, sexual orientation and other things, then descend into name-calling, backstabbing, backbiting, betrayal like little children; yet we want the same Black People that we mistreat standing along side us with fist in the air shouting “black power!” ” “black unity!” “fuck da white mane!” and I am noticing this hypocrisy is mostly come from these fake ass “pro-black” negroes, ya know the main ones preaching “black unity!” “black power!” I’m just tired of being sick and fucking tired of it!  We gotta to do better and learn to agree to disagree in spite of it all. We will never liberate ourselves if we continue on this path.

Black people be like "But...but...but... black women don't experience like black men...

White Sorority Member At Southern Methodist University Explains Why Black Women Are Too Ugly And Poor To Join

Your sweet, angelic, delicate, classier, better than black women, not as racist as white men (busts out laughing) white women showing their racism towards black women. When are you guys going to hold white women accountable for their racism? Just because a few  of them fuck black men and have kids with them does not diminish their racist belief system or white privilege. Get over yourselves. yall would pull the racism out of a biracial man with a dark skin wife but continue to let white women slide because you've internalized white female purity. Pathetic.
his is what she initially posted to her school’s page on GreekRank.com:
“This is the south (hence SOUTHERN Methodist University), and a majority of girls are legacies with strong ties to the chapters they join (or will join), and tend to come from old money.
The reality is is that black pnms are often unqualified for recruitment (low GPA, bad grades, not involved on campus, know nothing about the houses) and are heavily unprepared (no letters of recommendations or letters of support) and generally come from a completely different background (impoverished lower class).”
So going through recruitment is 10x tougher as a black woman, and you will have to work harder than other white, Asian, Hispanic or foreign women.
I know someone asked about it and this is a hot topic on YY, but it’s the truth. people can deny and act like the houses are flooded with black girls, but they aren’t.”
Soon after her post went up, women presumably from the schools sororities started reacting and things got really messy. By “messy”, we mean probably one of the most blatant displays of racism that you have seen all week.
A poster calling herself showed up with a racist reaction that set the SMU GreekRank page on fire. This is what she said:
“Reasons why black women do not and will not get bids:
1) Y’all are racist and have your own sororities and fraternities. Y’all created them, so how about using them?
2) Y’all are aesthetically unpleasing to the eye both for activities and the fraternity men we associate with. No, we don’t want to be the house that took “the black” and end up like Gamma Phi, where guys avoid them like the plague. Sorry, but looks matter.
3) Ya’ll never have letters of recommendation or support
4) Ya’ll have no in house connections
5) Y’all go to crappy schools and generally don’t deserve to be at SMU to begin with.
6) Your personalities suck
7) Y’all are boring to talk to
8) Not wealthy
9) Don’t put in any effort, yet expect us to want you
10) No incentives for bidding you, other than looking diverse”
The person who wrote this closed her response with the following:
“Why do black women think they’re entitled to joining OUR sororities? Honestly, this puts is off from y’all even more.”
This response is clearly racist and but this is definitely not the first time that something like this has happened. Earlier this year, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity at the University of Oklahoma was shut down after a video was leaked of their chapter chanting:
“There will never be a ni**** in SAE.
There will never be a ni**** in SAE.
You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me
There will never be a ni**** in SAE.”
Earlier this month, Black Students at UCLA crashed a blackface party that was being held by Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity And Alpha Phi Sorority at their school.
What are your thoughts on this whole situation? Does it surprise you? Let us know in the comment section below.
We at WatchTheYard.com did a little digging and found some other responses to the post including one regarding intake of asians vs. blacks. Click on the arrows below to see screenshots of the OUTRAGEOUS responses.

America Doesn’t Care About Black Women And Girls

OCTOBER 27, 2015

On October 26 a student at Spring Valley High School in North Carolina recorded the brutal assault of a black female student by a white male police officer. To many, it’s shocking to see the officer throw the silent girl out of her seat onto the ground and drag her across the floor by her leg. To many, it’s shocking to see the teacher and school administrator stand by silently while one of their students is assaulted.
But this isn’t shocking to black women in America.
Black women face substantially higher rates of abuse, poverty, incarceration, rape and murder than white women. We are far more likely to die in childbirth—and so are our babies. For every dollar a white man makes, we bring home only 63 cents. While infection for others across the country has drastically declined, HIV/AIDS is now the leading cause of death for black women age 25-34. Right now there are 64,000 missing black women in America.
And for all of this, America has stood by silently.
Rekia Boyd, Natasha McKenna, Kathryn Johnston, Adaisha Miller, Kindra Chapman, Sandra Bland, Aiyana Jones, Kimberlee Randall, Eleanor Bumpurs, Tarika Wilson, Shelly Frey, Tanisha Anderson, Renisha McBride, Mackala Ross. Do you know who these women are? Have you marched for them?
While black men are feared, exploited, hunted and hated, black women are nothing—nothing at all. We are completely ignored, left to suffer in silence. Squashed like a bug if we become bothersome. There is no beauty to exploit, no power to fear, no outrage to spin. We don’t matter.
What you see in that video is not an officer full of anger or fear or hatred. What you see is a man annoyed that he has to spend any time dealing with something as insignificant as a black girl. What you see is a man throwing out a bag of trash that just happens to be a person. This is the way in which black women in America have been treated throughout history.
And yet we’re still here. We’re still fighting to survive every day. We’re fighting to raise our children with less resources. We’re fighting to provide on less pay. We’re fighting to heal from our wounds with less care. You will never see anything stronger than a black woman, if you see us at all.
Those of us who are black women, those of us who love black women, those of us who depend on black women for survival—we beg of you: see us. See us and our humanity. Care about our suffering. Care about our success. Stand with our women and girls. Be outraged at our rape, our murder, our neglect. Be heartbroken at our loss. Be inspired by our resilience. Be awed by our creativity. Be stunned by our beauty.
And then do something.
Fight police brutality that assaults our black women. Reform a medical system that neglects our black women. Demand economic justice from employers that exploit black women. Fire teachers who refuse to educate black women. Jail men who beat and rape black women. Boycott networks that refuse to show black women. Repeal laws that oppress black women. Protect black women. Protect their children. Protect their families.
We exist, and we are just as worthy of love and compassion as anybody else.

Petitions towards black women only...

It’s sad to me how fast people are willing to make petitions for a black woman. There was a petition for Nicki for (LAN), a petition for Blue Ivy’s hair, and petition for Raven Symone, I don’t feel sorry for her, she keeps being dismissive towards black people’s plights, that’s something that is a pet peeve of mine, coming from two black parents she knows better. I’m just using her as an example.

But, where were the petitions for Tommy Sotomayor? Micheal B. Jordan? Tariq Nasheed? What about Pharrell? What about Kevin Hart? What about towards companies that alienate and discriminate towards black women (people of color)? Various white celebrities who still have jobs like Don Imus(racist comments towards the Williams sisters), Eminem, Julianne Hough(black face crazy eyes) or Iggy Azealea. Where was the petition towards Rachel Dolezal?

I notice we don’t take social issues seriously if they’re centered around black women. We don’t take them seriously if they target black women. But we damn sure take them seriously if we believe a lot of social issues are at the hands of black women. Black people had no problem wanting to kick KeKe Palmer, or SZA out of the race for their dismissive comments about police brutality. But not Richard Sherman, but not B.O.B., but not Kendrick Lamar. Heck a good portion of these brothas have defended Bill Cosby with their rape apologist mentalities (Damn Wayans), haven’t seen the “ collective” calling for their heads to be completely gone.
Why are people so quick to be dismissive, dismissive as in “do away with” of black women? Is it because we view black women not human? This leads me to believe that black women can only be one thing “The perpetrator”. We’re never the victim under any circumstance. No one is willing to understand or second chance black women. Black women are always the villian under any circumstance. Be it within the black community or white racist America.
