wendy bell

Wendy Bell, a news anchor at WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh, was fired for comments she wrote on Facebook.com.

Bell, 45, was fired Wednesday for sharing her opinions on the deaths of five adults and an unborn fetus who were shot by 2 assassins at a backyard BBQ in Wilkinsburg, PA. on March 9.

Bell, who is a mixed race woman of color, speculated on the racial ethnicity and single mother status of the 2 unknown shooters on WTAE’s Facebook page.

“You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday,” she wrote, “they are young black men, likely in their teens or early 20s. These boys have been in the system before. They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested.”

Bell added: “They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs.”

She then wrote about a young black man she saw working in a Southside Works restaurant.

Bell said she called the restaurant manager over to her table and praised the black man’s work ethic.

“I wonder how long it had been since someone told him he was special,” she wrote.

After WTAE viewers called the station to complain, Bell edited her statements and eventually deleted her comments altogether.

But that wasn’t enough for her bosses at Hearst.

“WTAE has ended its relationship with anchor Wendy Bell,” Hearst Hearst Television spokesperson said in a statement. “Wendy’s recent comments on a WTAE Facebook page were inconsistent with the company’s ethics and journalistic standards.”

Bell worked for WTAE-TV for 18 years. She won 21 regional Emmy Awards for her news reporting.

Many of the Facebook readers threatened to switch stations after Bell’s termination was announced.

In a statement to the AP, Bell said: “It makes me sick. What matters is what’s going on in America, and it is the death of black people in this country. … I live next to three war-torn communities in the city of Pittsburgh, that I love dearly. My stories, they struck a nerve. They touched people, but it’s not enough. More needs to be done. The problem needs to be addressed.”

Bell later apologized on Facebook, writing: “I now understand that some of the words I chose were insensitive and could be viewed as racist. I regret offending anyone. I’m truly sorry.”

Bell’s fellow journalists blame her firing, in part, on the freedom of social media platforms that allow users to impulsively upload their opinions to the Internet without filters or forethought.

    There are several people on this very blog who voice similar opinions all the time. Projects, single mothers, missing fathers…Very insensitive, especially coming from other black people, I for one am learning to ignore it but it’s still wrong IMO. She deserved to be fired.

    True dat!

  • MissHarlem

    OT but not really it’s hilarious how most people accept the bs that’s fed to them…ie black on black crime being the scapegoat when in fact all races have white on white Asian on Asian etc. People kill within their own habitats generally. That bs has been fed to us to the point where we think we are the only race doing it. Wake up. Goes without saying that we shouldn’t kill our own but that’s another topic. If you still asleep none of this shit I said makes sense to you so here’s your pillow and blanket ??

  • Nonya Bizness

    Does she know it’s true? She says all that like she personally knows them, knows the house they’re hiding in, etc. If that’s the case, she needs to call the police instead of ranting on FB. She mentions her mom teaching her and her sister to never say anything bad about people, but she doesn’t mention her dad. Should we go online and rant about how her and her sister have different dads(which we don’t even know if that’s the case, just like she doesn’t know if anything she said about the people involved in the heinous crime are true). She needs to go home to her Dr. Husband and 5 kids, and keep her mouth closed, with her entitled self, acting like she really did something huge by telling the employee’s boss how good of a job he was doing. She comes off as very uppity to me.

    I struggle with this one. I don’t like or appreciate her comments at all, but should the penalty be losing her job. She’s worked there for 18 years and obviously is a good employee. How many of us do and say things in our personal time and on our personal social media pages that our employers wouldn’t particularly care for? I just think they take fire folks to far when they post stuff on social media. What happened to freedom of speech? Hell what happened to I’m not at work and can do what the hell ever I want to. IJS

    Employers can decide who they hire/retain based on of any info they learn about an employee. Many states are ‘At Will’ meaning there is no reason needed for firing someone.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    How do we know it’s true? Did her “mental sketch” lead to the identity and apprehension of the shooters? Are they in custody as a result of her “true” OPINION???

    These “How do we know if it’s racist” folks are dumb as shatt!

  • 7ate9

    People spout this “The problem needs to be addressed line” but no one has solutions. The undertones of the statement is that black men are inherently violent but the truth is the lack of opportunity for black Men in this country. The school to prison pipeline and the ease of swiftly and harshly punishing one group of people. The felony convictions that are handed out in appalling numbers for actions that studies have proven would been seen differently if it was committed by white American. The fact that applicants with black sounding names (studies have shown) are less likely to get a call for an interview or a reply from a Senator. These things have created legal discrimination against black men that has led them to the street to commit even more crime by selling drugs or even killing to make ends meet. Once a felon you are disqualified from government aid via foodstamps, public housing, and grants for going to school. So until there are jobs and opportunities to help black men better themselves this “problem” will continue and probably get worse with this Great Recession. My “idea” is to offer the GI bill to civilians. The government pays for trade school and a certain amount of money to cover bills to make it easier for adults with families to better themselves. This will get folks off the government’s teet and allow them to make an honest livable wage. But what do I know?

    BTW statistics are what the government reports not what the reality on the ground is but self-hating black people like you prefer to believe the worst about black people.

    Did you know that when they did stop and frisk in white neighborhoods that they got more hits (drugs and weapons) than when they stopped black and Hispanics?

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Amen

  • eyeseeall

    I think that’s the point people are missing….

  • Hmmm~?

    That is entirely irrelevant to this discussion. Why is it when anyone brings up the topic of black on black violence, black people always try to divert the issue and bring up white on white violence? The existence of white on white violence does not invalidate the prevalence of black on black crime. You yourself are part of the problem, since instead of addressing the issue, you just pull a strawman. Your mentality is precisely why the majority of black people do nothing to try and help their own community. You just ignore the problems and pretend they don’t exist. Or, you think because the same issue exists in white communities, it’s suddenly no longer a problem in black communities. It makes absolutely no sense, and the fact that other people upvoted your comment only further proves my point.

  • 100milesperhour

    Trust, the police don’t ignore black on black crime. That’s why the community isn’t as outraged about it, b/c they know when caught, black criminals are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Cops love to arrest & incarcerate black men, guilty or not.
    And chances are, if it’s a predominantly black neighborhood, then the killers will be black (statistically). Most homicides are intra-racial, so this helmet hair bish can fall back w/her fake outrage about these murder victims; she just used it as a platform to disclose her racist point of view in a very public way.

  • eyeseeall

    I know plenty of young white men whose siblings have different fathers, their mothers work multiple jobs and they’ve had plenty of run-ins with the law….We can work on social, economical and mental development in the black community without down-talking and degrading ourselves. Yes, we need to do better but we also don’t need anyone patronizing or insulting us whether it’s true or not. Unity and self love is key. The black community beats itself enough. These people hold a powerful tool- the media. Be careful who you give a pass to negatively on us.

    Humans have every right to disagree…Maybe her station would have shared the same sentiments if she left those comments on her own personal page

  • Transitioning

    Agreed!

  • Di Ana

    You can not use social media for everything and her arrogant a** got just what it deserve. The nerve of her to crown herself the specialist of what she thinks is wrong with young black boys/men and single black mothers. It aint just happen like that, it was the drugs brought into the community purposely in the 60s 70s by this government!!!! and the lingering aftermath is what you see today! There is an expression and I think it goes something like this “you cannot place the blame on the darkness, it is the person who caused the darkness”.

  • Noirluv45

    So, I’d like her to profile the rampant drug addiction in White America that spurred the president and the government to “do something about heroin addition.” White America, whether poor or rich, are experiencing drug addiction, but it’s never attributed to their “Whiteness” or socioeconomic standing. We don’t need her sympathy. We don’t need her apologies.

  • Di Ana

    Preach!

  • Noirluv45

    Unfortunately, she didn’t make that statement on her personal FB page; she made it on the station’s FB page.

  • Brook York

    That apology sounds like a broken record.

    ==========================

    Its not a question of factual-ness or not as far as what she said. It’s it’s a question of tone. Her comments had a very condescending tone toward black people.

  • country57

    She is white, some of my family is from that area. It used to be a very nice area where the shooting happened.

  • surprise2012

    You totally took Aries Dog comment out of context. If you watch the channel you will see what she’s talking about.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    I don’t see any black people trying to divert the issue, but I do see people making the argument that BLACK people are no more violent than WHITE people. You are correct, the existence of white on white crime has nothing to do with black on black crime except when it’s a white person committing the crime it is viewed as an Exception but when it is a black person it is viewed as the Norm. This constant demeaning of black people is one of the problems that we face today. As far as up voting the comment, I sure did and I will continue to do so when I agree with whomever is posting.

  • surprise2012

  • 88

    I don’t think so, this woman is confused I do not agree with her saying the killers were Black without one shred of evidence. For all we know the killers could have been white, this is why I say she is confused probably because she is mixed. Her ideals and opinions uphold white supremacy think.

  • Smith Jane

    Why does it always come back to what “others” do? Why should WE care about little Billy shooting up heroin in the suburbs of Utah or wherever? Just because the yt community and the black community have similar problems doesn’t mean the root causes are the same. There are culture differences that cause Hakeem to commit a drive by verses Billy who shoots up an elementary school. Black people have got to let go of their denial. We have a serious problem and the root cause begins and ends with the woman. More specifically, a black woman. We have to be more selective with the men that we choose to have babies with. Start thinking about what’s best for the next generation instead of this feminist/strong black woman/I-can-do-it-on-my-own nonsense. It takes 2 ppl with strong morals and strong values to rear children, who will become productive, functional, members of this society. So sick of folks in the media having to sugar coat and placate the truth for fear of outcry. Some things need to be said, and BLACK WOMEN NEED TO DO BETTER!!! The lies about why you can’t raise healthy, productive children needs to cease. Real talk.

  • 88

    I agree, it’s no need for Black ppl to get their blood pressure up just sit down with family and friends and initiate a calm in depth discussion about the system of racism white supremacy and develop tactics and techniques to counter that system.

  • 88

    Actually racism white supremacy is the reality.

    Racism (white supremacy) is the local and global power system and dynamic, structure, maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action, and emotional response, as conducted, simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet Earth – a planet upon which the vast and overwhelming majority of people are classified as non-white (black, brown, red and yellow) by white-skinned people, and all of the non-white people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white-skinned people.

  • Baron

    Hey, she may have a point. E.g., when I learn of a mass school shooting, it’s probably a young white male who can’t cope with rejection. When I hear about Wall Street and other white collar crimes, it’s probably an older white male who feels he is entitled to more. When I hear about a pedophile, it’s probably a white man who is either a teacher, clergyman, or in some other position of authority over children. But what do I know?

  • abby-o

  • Smith Jane

    While I would agree that there are some things that have been out of our control, from 2-3 generations ago, there are most things that are avoidable, and unfortunately, black women are to blame for it. Yes, the black community was hit the hardest for drugs, STD’s, and incarceration for minor offenses; other things, like out of wedlock children, welfare, the destruction of the black family, values, morality, and black pride in general – these are things that could have been avoided and corrected sometime in the 90s, 2000s by the latest. Nobody can honestly tell me that, as a community we can’t make better decisions on who we have relationships with, have children with, have a source of financial stability before having a child, loving your community & wanting economic wealth for those that look like you. These are such basic concepts, and yet, we have not been able to establish it. There is no excuse or atrocity that we have faced that could prevent us from having these things. Folks in 3rd world countries are able to have ALL of these ideals and they don’t have even s 3rd of the advantages that Americans have. Seriously, at some point we’re going to have to face that fact that we have failed and start rebuilding from ground zero before it’s too late

Felons who were convicted of selling/distributing drugs cannot receive food stamps or TANF. You can even have a conviction for simple possession and still receive benefits.

Everything that plagues the black community today can be traced back to the black male at the beginning of the issue… Then you say it was on the black woman to correct all the crack & guns being sold, homelessness, family abandonment, lack of education unemployment, prison sentences, broken families & communities is all something that she should have corrected alone??!?! People like you need to realize that until the black male stands up and corrects his own issues things will likely stay the same for him, his children, his families and his communities.. You tried, but try harder next time!!

If we (boycott) turn off the TV and loud music alone and start having calm discussion about racism white supremacy as a ”SYSTEM” things could change overnight. I understand your sentiment completely but we have been talking about injustices simultaneously while clowning and buffooning, listening, dancing and singing to demeaning and degrading music, praying and singing to white jesus and watching tv shows that are designed to trash us and our self respect. How do you expect Black ppl to have respect for themselves if they are doing that? We have to start reading, studying and getting an in-depth understanding of our history and the dynamic that is controlling the globe. Racism is white supremacy we need to master that saying and it’s functional definition.

    Racism (white supremacy) is the local and global power system and dynamic, structure, maintained by persons who classify themselves as white, whether consciously or subconsciously determined; which consists of patterns of perception, logic, symbol formation, thought, speech, action, and emotional response, as conducted, simultaneously in all areas of people activity (economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics, religion, sex, and war); for the ultimate purpose of white genetic survival and to prevent white genetic annihilation on planet Earth – a planet upon which the vast and overwhelming majority of people are classified as non-white (black, brown, red and yellow) by white-skinned people, and all of the non-white people are genetically dominant (in terms of skin coloration) compared to the genetic recessive white-skinned people.

    No one is acting like this isn’t happening. Are you giving this speech to the parents of your jail bird cousins? Nope.

  • Smith Jane

    You’re right. But where do these discussions and influences begin? In the home. Our community is fractured and it started with the black woman. Welfare favoring single mothers, gsve women the empowerment to leave men and become “independent”. Which created these mentalities that women don’t need a man, blah, blah, blah, which has been passed on to black girls for the last 3 generations. Only in the last 10 years have black women have FINALLY realized that they can’t do everything on their own, and some of them have even corrected their behavior and actions (PRAISE GOD!!), but it’s still not enough, because we still have folks justifying or trying to shift the blame to everyone and everything else.

    You make several valid points, but these discussions need to be embedded in the house and THEN reiterated within our community. That is the ONLY way we’re going to create the changes you’ve described.

  • Li

    It’s always safe to say, “some” black people, or a “subculture” of black people. But to take a paint brush and paint all black people is not right.

  • Phillybruh

    I fortunately don’t have any jail bird cousins. Perhaps its a conversation you should have with yours you seem willing to give them a 101 excuses for their behavior

  • Smith Jane

    Unless these women are being raped and forced into carrying these men’s children, then YES, is PRIMARILY the woman’s fault. A woman CHOOSES who she will have sex with, a woman CHOOSES whether to carry that child to full term, and woman is granted full custody of said child by default. It doesn’t matter what the situation or circumstances are, the woman plays the primarily role because she is the facilitator of the community.

    The facts don’t lie. An overwhelming majority of violence committed in the black community is the result of single parent households. Perhaps if women used better judgement instead of trying to get a quick cum we wouldn’t have a bunch of delinquents shooting up our community. Being apart of a community means that you think about what’s best for your community. That means wanting to establish 2 parent households with functional, successful, wealthy blacks and breed children in that environment.

    So, yes, it IS THE BLACK WOMANS FAULT

    The killers are unknown. She was fired for speculating that they were black and from single mothers etc. I agree that whoever killed the people need to be punished. But if she doesn’t know who they are or what the situation then why speculate about something you know nothing about and put false information out there that could hinder the investigation. And at the same time perpetuate stereotypes about Black men. The killer could be a lily white man or another race or ethnicity. For someone who is an anchor it was just pretty stupid to put that out there. I don’t know when people will learn to keep their thoughts private.

    She would have never gone into a tirade about the inherent violent tendencies in young white males who are from two parent homes with stay at home moms and still go out and shoot up malls, schools and even their own family. How do we explain their violence? How come there is no multimedia dialogue about that? People are far too comfortable taking on a parental tone when discussing crimes by Black assailants and lumping entire communities of people together for a good scolding about how “we” behave, but they NEVER do that with White people? White people have a history of violence that cannot even be explained by economics, racism, or broken families so why are they so violent? Wake me up when bishes start tweeting and Fbing about that.

    She was 100% correct about these single mother raised black men. This is the result of all the black women in the 70’s and 80’s having adopted that ”i dont need a man” mindset. This is the result of it. Women cannot raise young boys to be men. And now allot of black communities are suffering because of it.

    What does a white woman know about raising a black son unless she is raising one who is biracial

  • Guest

    Exactly, why is she not speculating on facebook when a little white kid is raped and killed that she believes the perpetrator is white.
    Thing is, she’s not bringing attention to white crimes but she’s going to use her junior profile skills to determine the killers are black and even their family life.
    Even her condescending remarks about the busboy. Why couldn’t she assume he was a college kid making a little money while he went to school. Why did she have to assume he’s from a horrible background with lousy parents?

    I’ll tell you why we should care about what others around us do. I don’t know about you, but I share a planet with billions of people, and since I live around them, I don’t want some drug addicted or otherwise not-so-nice or dangerous person around me. Little Billy shooting up heroin might live next door to you and might rob you, might kill you, might get on the road with you or your loved one and cause harm. That’s why we should care. Do you work, go to school with, shop with only Black people? If the answer is, “No,” then you should care because you never know who is around you. What Black people need to let go of is the negative mindset that makes many of us the gloom and doom mentality. If you live next door to Billy shooting up, what difference does it make as to why he’s doing it. He’s still a danger to society. Black people need to start thinking beyond their noses and start looking at the BIG PICTURE. So of us are so myopic in our views and I blame that on the educational system that teaches us what the think and not how to think. It’s not about denial at all. Lord knows we’ve heard for decades how “horrible we are, blah, blah, blah.” The sad part is that’s all some of us see. Many of us don’t see that we are survivors and that things are changing. Black people are on the come up. If you open your eyes and seek that, you’d know that. Don’t believe the narrative others give you. Since it takes TWO people to create strong, functional children, then it’s IMPERATIVE that MEN get themselves together. I will NOT accept the “Black woman is at fault” bullshyt. I’m sick of Black women and men falling for that. Black women are the ones that should be supported instead of demeaned. Yes, we get pregnant, but we sure as hell don’t get pregnant on our own. It’s time that MEN stand up and take a hold of their children and become a constant presence in their lives. I’m not taking the blame for another adult’s decisions. If you want to, go ahead. Perhaps your negativity doesn’t allow you to see that BLACK WOMEN ARE DOING BETTER. The fastest growing business owners are BLACK WOMEN. Black women are also the largest group of all races going to college. Your negativity is what keeps us down. You want one rule for us and another rule for them. That’s White supremacy. The whole country is going to hell and White folks get a pass because they are never seen as a unit like we are. Like I said, drug addiction, child abuse, and other societal ills DO NOT only rest with Black people, but with a world that celebrates violence, premarital sex, and single motherhood, which, by the way, started with White women (look up the show Murphy Brown.) Anyway, you can continue to spew that nonsense all you want, but I’m not picking up what you are putting down. Seek positivity and you’ll find it. If you are Black and you have that mentality, your mind is still trapped in slavery. You believe the lies told to you, and THAT is what causes self-loathing and hatred. I’m not going for it.

  • Hmmm~?

    You question what can be done about it, as if there is no solution. You willfully ignore facts and proven statistical evidence. It’s not a “”very small”” percentage. You are being extremely disingenuous. You and the other black people on here need to WAKE UP and stop lying to yourselves. How are we supposed to fix the problems that are harming our communities if we don’t acknowledge they exist, or try and downplay them? Your mentality is quite literally the reason why the black community will likely never prosper. Accept the fact that the black race has it’s faults and stop trying to minimize the issues at hand. Only then can we finally work towards having a place in society, rather than at the bottom.

  • Hmmm~?

    That’s because of the disproportionate prevalence of violent black on black crime compared to violent white on white crime. Like it or not, whites commit less crime than blacks. This is statistically proven and no amount of hearsay will make it any less true. Yes, the constant demeaning of the black race is a very prevalent issue. But you need to look at the status of the black community. You need to look at black culture. You need to examine the possible reasons why people would say these things, instead of just complaining about it. You need to actually open your eyes and gain some level of social awareness. Am I saying I support racism? No, but I definitely understand it. The only way that blacks will be respected by other races (not just whites) is by coming together and addressing the problems facing our communities. That starts by actually acknowledging that there is a problem. Something that the majority of the people on this board seem to be incapable of.

I just remembered another one, having sex with students you’re supposed to be teaching. Pretty much runs the gamut.

  • Smith Jane

    I think you missed my point.

    Yes, in THIS country (300+million of US) we do share resources and have to live amongst people of every age & ethnic group. However, the topic at hand is about a minority group (30 million, give or take) killing each other, while living in close proximity to other blacks. If you’re a minority and care about your community and your people, then your first priority will ALWAYS be about the survival of your people and what measures need to be taken to see that we don’t die out by killing each other. The problem is, and this was the point of my post, anytime we try to have a discussion about the root causes of blacks killing blacks, it always comes back to what yt ppl do. Notice, yt ppl are the barometer for what black ppl should acceptable ::side eye:: so just because Billy is shooting up elementary schools we need to be content with the fact that Hakeem is doing it too? Never mind the fact that statistics show a CLEAR profile of what all of the black criminals have in common: poor and they come from single mother households. Whereas if you look at the statistics for why yt kids like Billy commit crimes the profile looks drastically different. However, I’m not concerned about Billy and his issues. There are over 70 million yt ppl that will pour money and time to see to it that other yt kids like Billy get the treatment that they need – hence the heroin situation – rehab facilities, education, spreading awareness – whereas the action taken when it concerned black folks was mass incarceration abs unfair drug laws. We’ve seen how yt ppl handle the problems and issues of minorities, which is why my mindset is f*cc Billy and his ilk! Now, getting back to the root cause in the black community, the majority of crimes are being committed by boys that come rom single parent households. As far as relationships go, we all know how this work, so don’t try to make this into an equal situation of blame. The way that it works is, in terms of dating/f*cc, the onus is on the guy to approach and court the woman. It is UP TO THE WOMAN TO ACCEPT OR REJECT HIS ADVANCES. As a woman, the task of raising and carrying a child is on US. That is OUR disadvantage. Because regardless of what happens in that relationship, Hakeem can up and leave tomorrow and saddle you with a child without providing any financial or emotional support for that child. Every woman knows this. Yet they somehow act like when they choose to f*cc around with an ain’t-shyt-dude that that responsibility is somehow equal? Even though you knew from jump that you and Ray-Ray couldn’t afford the kid or that he had kids littered all over the hood and wasn’t taking care of any of them but somehow you’re supposed to be the exception and he has to shoulder part of the blame for your stupidity? Naw. I can’t and won’t accept that victim narrative. Just like rich men have to protect themselves against gold diggers who want their money and seed, women need to protect themselves from bums and losers that will leave broke with a child. Black women have to accept the role that they play in our community. And further more, if they even understand what a community was, they would WANT to seek out the best men of our community and make sure that our community would be embedded with 2parent homes. But these women don’t care. They are selfish and irresponsible.

  • Ant Hill

    Fired for stating facts huh? smh

  • ??TupacsFemaleDoppelganger??

    Okay – so nowhere at any time does a man abandoning the life he created play into any of the issues these black children, namely these black boys, are having?? The black male has been abandoning & destroying his families and communities since the since the very early 60″s.. In the 60’s the black male was the face of going out for a pack of cigarettes only for his children to never see him again and of a dangerous overflow of drugs being sold in his communities.. He has often ended up in jails or dead as a result of it.. The black woman and child has been abandoned due to the black male and his negativity for decades now.. To come to this point and have the gall to only blame a black woman is ridiculous and only serves the continue to give the black male a pass for failing the people who should matter most to him.. Everything that plagues the black race today can be traced back to the black male letting his people down!! WOMEN are not the leaders of their race / communities, MEN are!! Its that way in every other race / ethnicity and their is a reason it is no the same for blacks – THE BLACK MALE!! Too long the black woman and black community has been conditioned to overlook the self inflicted pain and tribulations of the “poor misunderstood discriminated against” black male and it has often been to the black woman, child and communities own detriment.. The black woman isn’t the most of the problem.. The black male & ignorance like yours is…

  • ??TupacsFemaleDoppelganger??

    Perhaps if women used better judgement instead of trying to get a quick cum we wouldn’t have a bunch of delinquents shooting up our community.
    And just to further highlight this comment right here – the same can be said for the black male.. If he chose his women and who he runs up in raw better instead of down in the gutter – along with C0ND0M USE – he could stop a lot of these unwanted births as well.. The black male controls his penis, not a woman.. Stop running up in these woman who already have multiple children raw and expecting different results!!

  • Noirluv45

    No, I didn’t miss your point. People, based on the demographic, are going to commit crimes against one another, so the BOB crime mantra is nothing unusual. Smith Jane, I love my people, but I’m also realistic. We cannot stop crime. If the police can’t, do you think we can? Blacks have been working for decades to curb violence in many of our communities. We need to attack the issue at hand such as poverty, unemployment, racism, and a lack of hope. Again, you missed my point in that I never said because Billy is shooting up places that it’s okay for Blacks to do it. My point is we, as a NATION, are facing some dire issues, and we all are in it together. Again, we live in a world with people of every race, so what he/she does affects us and those around us. I agree with you regarding the fact that yt does and will look out for yt, but I think we are talking two different issues here. You said why should we worry about what yt does. I explained why we should worry for the reasons I explained previously. Am I saying we go to bat for yt. NO, that’s not what I’m saying. I don’t know how old you are, but I’m old enough to be a grandmother, so I know how the world works. Yes, many crimes are committed by boys/men who grew up in single-parent households, but I will not let you put the responsibility solely on Black women. Blah, blah, blah. Right, women are responsible for our reproductive organs, and many of us need to pick more suitable me, but why aren’t their more suitable men? OK, let’s say it’s a Black woman’s fault. Does that men when he’s grown and he’s a loser, it’s his mama’s fault? I will not accept that bull. I’m just not going to. Men need not screw everything walking. He’s responsible for where he inserts his penis. When a boy grow into a man, it is HIS responsibility to own up to being a man. Period, end of story. Instead of criticizing these women, what are you doing to teach them? You can sit on your high horse all you want, but I’m about solving problems. Do you mentor young girls and women or just criticize them? Are you mentoring young men to teach them how to be men? If you aren’t doing anything to solve the problem, then you are a part of it. I was a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) and I’ve also been a teacher and mentor. I’m doing my part to change the narrative. I ask, “What are YOU doing?” If it’s just look down your nose, then that’s not enough.

  • Smith Jane

    How is it the boys responsibility to instinctively know what a man is and how to become a suitable one? aren’t these lessons taught in a home? More importantly a 2-parent home? And who is doing the primary rearing of the children? How is it that these women are raising these boys alone, but shifting the blame to everyone abs everything else, instead of taking sole responsibility for their piss poor decisions? You agreed with me about the majority criminal activity stemming from single parent household, and you agreed that women are responsible for their reproductive organs, so let’s just leave it at that, because there’s nothing further that you could add to that point. I honestly think you’re in denial and that’s what’s most detrimental to our community. Yes, we have many issues to tackle – in the BLACK COMMUNITY – but that starts with the community itself – its inhabitants. If we have a bunch of delinquents being produced at exorbitant rates by women who willfully refuse to get on birth control and who willfully choose inadequate sexual partners, how do you expect to reach any of the goals that you’ve mentioned? women have got to acknowledge the role that they play in this. They choose the partners, they choose to carry the child, and they are raising these kids primarily (70+%). Your denial is only crippling us and keeping us from reaching our full potential, why is this so difficult for you to grasp?

    As for yt ppl… They created the problems in this country, then can fix them on their own. We ain’t help to create the problem, so we shouldn’t be at fault to fix it. Black ppl need to focus on each other, and each other only! We have 400+ years of their bullshyt to overcome. Every other race is at the starting line and blacks, as whole don’t even know there’s a race

    Really?! Does a man have the power to terminate an unwanted pregnancy? Or is that decision lie solely with the woman? Is the man forced to raise the child by default or does that responsibility lie with the woman? No matter how you try to slice this, the woman is held more responsible for the inception of that child from the moment that sperm enters her body til that child turns 18. So, stop it.

    Co sign and if we are gonna keep it as funky as Rick Ross’ knutsack, a woman needs a man PERIOD to raise up boys AND girls! YOU READ ME RIGHT.

So many fatherless GIRLS ARE LOST because they didn’t have that fatherly figure to encourage them and SHOW THEM that they are special and WORTHY of a man’s love, not just his peen plunging in and out of her.

  • Noirluv45

    Bingo! Yes, those lessons are taught at home, and guess what? If a man who decided to have sex with a woman instead of selfishly fulfilling his own lusts would take responsibility for his actions, he’d be around to teach a man to be a man. I still falls on him. Don’t get me wrong, Smith Jane. I agree that women, all women, must be mindful of the men they choose to get into relationships with, but many women who lack fathers, don’t know how to pick men. Many women have low self-esteem and are seeking love in all the wrong places. Many misplace sex for love. Many of those women have been used and abused as children. You have to see outside the box. Look, like I said, I’m in my 50’s and I know about life. I’m not going to let someone tell me what to say, think or do, especially someone who doesn’t know their ass from a hole in the wall. You are limited in your views and what’s more, you don’t listen; therefore, there’s nothing else to say. You are judgmental and self-righteous. You are the kind who will never see the great and mighty steps Black people have and currently take. You see the glass half empty; I see it half full. I can’t help but notice in your rant, that you never answered my question about what YOU are doing to help the situation. I take your lack of an answer as “Nothing.” You, choose, instead, to go on and on about what Black women are and aren’t doing. You are myopic, and there’s not getting through to people of your ilk, so we’ll agree to disagree. I don’t have time nor the energy to waste on people who are ignorant. Good day.

  • ??TupacsFemaleDoppelganger??

    As I said – ignorance such as yours is the problem with the black community, not women having children.. It’s sad individuals like you that are the reason the black male is the only race of male who thinks its cool to abandon his children then whine when he’s made to support them financially!! The black male has failed everyone around him.. You, personally, are one sad negro… Anyone who would condone mass abandonment of children & families by one group of males because he does not carry a child to term is a sad pitiful soulless waste of life… I see why black males are so hated and disrespected in society!! It’s not because of the color of his skin.. It’s because he is a sorry specimen of existence…

    In America telling the truth has become so PC it is now a revolutionary act.

    This country will die if we must censure the absolute truth with “filters”.

    The FBI stats are clear. Blacks and hispanics kill, rape , and rob at disproportionate rates.

    I am black and can see that wherever I travel. Most inner cities are crime ridden , and areas of high concentrations of minorities are economically depressed.

    What is so wrong with addressing the horrendous situation faced by our minority youth? It is a great disservice to pretend it away.

    Then why don’t you fix it?
    Poverty begets violence.
    Just standing outside of it may make you feel better and you can pat yourself on the back that you’re not one of ‘them’ but you are.
    Your first sentence proved it.
    Most people like you refer to other blacks as ‘them’, but guess what a-hole when white people look at you they see you as part of ‘them’ so I wouldn’t be so gleeful in quoting statistics.
