I think it is very insightful and appropriate, but it does not speak to my anger as a black woman. I am disappointed in black men and any man that would impregnate a woman and leave her to rear a child on her own. There are numerous things that upset me about the way many black people behave and treat one another. But that is only a part of my anger. Most of my anger stems from being reminded that I am black every single day of my life. I love being black, but every day I am reminded that I am “different” and not a part of the majority. I am reminded that many people still find me secondary and generally inferior. Sometimes it’s just a look by a stranger. Sometimes it’s blatant racism. I often catch the eye of a fellow black person when out and we instantly sympathize and understand one another. I feel their pain and they feel mine. I feel their anger and they feel mine. THIS is what really pisses me off! I think that this video is food for thought for black people and others as well. Black women are not the only ones that are angry, but the misconception that we are always (or easily) angered really angers some of us!
