|Miz Nita is too pretty to be puttin' up with this bull.|
By now, many of us have gone out with some white dudes. *raises hand* Some of us didn't really want to, but we thought, "Aw, heck...why not?" And when we dipped our toes in the water, we knew to proceed with caution. We remembered The Protocol: You suss him out, and the moment he does or says something which raises a rebel flag, you know it's time to stop seeing him. You certainly don't go and marry him.
See, I was on Abagond reading about "Dr. Laura and the N-Word" and to be honest, I'm more horrified with the black woman who called in than I am with Laura. You know, I actually Googled Miss Thang here and while I'm seeing the part where she went on her pointless little press war-path with Dr. Laura, I'm not seeing the part where she bitch-slapped her husband with a divorce. See, kids, while venting all her marital frustration at Laura, Miz Nita failed to realize her little mission will never bear any fruit. Witchsistah said it best:
This is NOT a hint for White folks to reform themselves. We've been asking that of them for the past 400 years. They've had more than enough time, chances and notice. After a while, you have to come to a conclusion that either WP are too stupid to understand or that they just don't care and don't want to change.Indeed...they do not.
Nita Hanson fucked up, children, and now she's leveling her misdirected dissatisfaction at Laura. 'Cause, y'all...let's be real: Miz Nita ain't gettin' satisfied. If her man ain't standin' up for her to his friends and family, it's highly unlikely he's standin' up anywhere else.
Now as for Laura herself, what's to say? She's a white American who was being overtly racist and is now whining about her First Amendment rights - so what else is new? I get it if white people were "shocked", but a black woman? In America? *chuckles* Y'all saw how Nita didn't call in a black show with her problem; she knows good and well what we would've told her.
Nita married a white guy who lets his friends and family be racially offensive around her. He doesn't correct them. He doesn't educate them. Even though it's his job, both as a husband and white person. But clearly, Miz Nita married the white guy who makes black women always think twice - and then six or seven more times - about dating white men. Clearly, she married a white guy who doesn't think she's worth protecting. After all, she's only his black wife; you don't have to treat the dark ones right, you know. They don't deserve a damn thing.
Seriously, kids...the mere thought of their marriage makes my flesh crawl. I mean, you've got to wonder what creepy-ass reason he drummed up to marry her in the first place. Like, does he have master-slave fantasies? 'Cause...ewwwwwwww.
She swore oaths of love to this man, walked down the aisle with this man...she sleeps with this man, guys. She endures the racism of his friends and family by day (and by extension, his own, for being a silent accomplice), and then at night she gets naked, lies down with him, and actually lets him touch her. Like...ewwwwwwww!!!!!!
Seriously...I think I'm gonna be sick.
