Tina Turner Weds + Disregarding The ‘Race Vampires’
Photo Courtesy: "We want Tina Turner for Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award" on Facebook - Excerpt : "MARRIED!!!! - That's right folks... The news out of Switzerland is that the Queen of Rock n' Roll TINA TURNER has married her long time partner ERWIN BACH - Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Bach! It is being reported that Tina and Erwin will have a lavish party July 21st at their Swiss home..."
Regarding the 'Race Vampires' who want Black women to stick around no matter what:
I do not offer much of a response to those types. My goal is to reach Black women whose lives are "not working" for whatever reason....And if it things "aren't working", we need to find the source, and make the decision to either fix or eliminate that problem.
For a number of Black women, the problem would be finding quality spouses. Mate selection is one of the most important decisions anyone can make. For many, it's just "not happening" with Black men. There are many who, for whatever reason, do not want to admit this truth. Then out of that group, we have those who acknowledge said predicament but continuously ask BW to present themselves as sacrificial lambs.
In addition, we need to ask: "Who supports the very system which is making it impossible for myself, my daughter, etc, to find love, agency, and other provisions?" The Black Construct is largely complicit. I do not call such predicaments a "community", because that would imply safety/covering with reciprocal interactions...Sadly, it is not.
If a Black woman's happiness doesn't entail them sucking on her blood in some capacity, then it will always be unacceptable to race vampires!
But there is hope! Black women have a plethora of available options --IF she's willing to explore them.
