Bette Midler

Bette Midler has apologized for a tweet that sparked uproar on the social media platform on Friday. Midler reacted angrily to the FBI's weeklong investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

Midler was upset at the FBI's failure to conduct a "complete investigation" into sexual harassment allegations against Kavanaugh, who is President Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The FBI found nothing to corroborate the allegations made by several women against Kavanaugh.

In a tweet on Thursday evening, the 72-year-old icon wrote: "Women are the n-word of the world". Midler said she was quoting Yoko Ono who uttered the same words in a song with her late husband John Lennon in 1972.

Bette Midler tweet

Midler explained her thought process in her apology.

“The too brief investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh infuriated me. Angrily I tweeted w/o thinking my choice of words would be enraging to black women who doubly suffer, both by being women and by being black. I am an ally and stand with you; always have. And I apologize.”

But Black Twitter was furious that Midler used a quote that was stolen from famed Black author Zora Neal Hurston, who died in 1960.

"So Bette Midler quoted Yoko who stole the line from Zora Neale Hurston who shed light on how the Black woman is the mule of the world in her novel. But Yoko ignored that part. And so did Bette. So f--k both of them," tweeted @nubiansweet.

And Twitter user @ShaniceDee wrote: "So first Bette Midler pretends black women don't exist, and then tries to tell us to get out our feelings and that it's not about race when she's literally the one who brought race up??? I guess she doesn't want us to enjoy Hocus Pocus this year..."

    I wish celebs would stop apologizing for what they say and what they mean to say. Just stop it.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Bette just aggravating...

  • stav

    Right ..own your hate and racism! It's so crazy a Jew saying this ,one of the only other people almost more persecuted than blacks.

  • HalleMerry

    So we "doubly suffer" by being women AND Black?? TF kind of apology is that? You just disrespected us AGAIN! I LOVE being black AND being a woman! Fock her!

  • KLo

    i give her a pass because I don't think it was meant to be racial

  • stav

    No passes for ignorance ! Her being a Jew woman why didn't she say women are the Kikes of the world?

  • Li-Wright

    You misunderstood my comment. IMO she's not racist she's just comparing what women are going through with what N*GAS go through with white men. I just wish that celebs would stop apologizing for what they say. Own it.

  • Li-Wright

    It wasn't racist. She's comparing what women go through with powerful white men and what NEgroes experience. Ignored. Avoided. Called Crazy, etc.

    Becuz black people are the only ones who will give her dumb advice a pass. Wake up sheeple this is prove of thier ability to use our experience to further their sick liberal agenda. Malcolm x was a profit when he said they where two faced users.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    I'm just curious because some of these fonts seem to jump at the chance to use "N*GAS" in a sentence ...that Armenian bot/troll that was on here used it right outta the gate, then got defensive when I smoked her out. They try to hide in plain sight, but they all have a 'tell ' if you pay attention.

  • Mielle Downey

    Ohh she said what she said and meant it. Ut forgot to add her own people experience.

  • stav

    Ever heard of the Holocaust? Throughout the Bible there were many times they were almost eradicated, and many hate groups direct their hate at Jews first then blacks.

  • Soda

    They still kept their identity, their language, their customs and traditions. Almost doesn't count.

  • stav

    Persecution is persecution, forced cultural assimilation is another story.

  • Quitedeliteful

    This big-nosed, floppy eared Jew does not get a pass. Instead of N****r why not Kike, Hymie, Jewboy, Moch, Hebe, Bagel-dogs, Hot-Pockets (because they got cooked in ovens), JAP, Jewgaboo, etc. etc. There are plenty of names her own people are called that she could have chosen to reference. Fugg Bette.

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    She always talks like this. Maybe not publicly but...

  • Maxx

    She was referencing a song & quote she believed came from Ono. I actually went & listened to the song & I can see why she chose this as an example. Yes she should have taken a moment to research it before putting it out there especially with such a sensitive topic & choice of words, but was it meant to offend & be racist, IMO Hell naw....I love Bette Midler.

  • Miss Thang

    We know you're an ally, Bette, as best you can be a a white woman.

  • Li-Wright

    I know one thing. I want to know what moisturizer she uses on her face. That face is baby smoothe!

  • Li-Wright

    Women are women, whether black, white, Middle Eastern or Asian....you want to see abuse -- look at some of the abuse ME/Arabian and Asian women go through. They are tortured baby. Read some of those stories of poor Asians working in Saudi Arabia and enslaved.

    white folks CAN NOT joke about blacks, draw black characters, quote from black sources, sing or perform songs by black artists, wear hairstyles blacks wear, wear clothing blacks wear, talk the way black talk, dress in the color black, or even say the word "black". its just not allowed.

  • Eileen

    Girlfriend you mad today but you sho nuff telling da truff!!!!

  • Eileen

    Yeah why not they were getting roasted in ovens and babies being killed

  • Li-Wright

    People act like and write like there are no black princesses. There are black princesses and white princesses. They both are on the same level as far as I'm concerned.

    You know, as someone who was born in the US, I'm damn glad to have been born in the US. When I see the absolute torture some women (men) go through across the oceans. We should kiss the ground we walk on.

  • Eileen

    OUCH!! but it is true...every culture on planet earth has looked to America at black folks when it came to suffering and they profit]ted from it.

  • Eileen

    I got you girl!!! I would never want to be anything else but a black sista but only if I could straighten out my little bowleggs!!

  • Eileen

    The Jews were the most Blessed and the most hardheaded people on planet earth...

  • Dun Dilly

    Liberal white chicks at their best. damn shame.

  • Eileen

    Despite all black folks in America are Blessed! But we must utilize all of the advantages we have. The law is on our side we can move about freely black folks are more Blessed than we realize in this country.Just ask the africans and the black folks from the islands that is why they are jealous of American black folks the last folk off the ship got the better deal. If you dont think so trade places with a Black person from another county! Holla

Black people have our own fight so we need to turn a deaf ear to these two faced users until we get our ten acre and mule. We let them use us until they achieve their goal and the we are tossed away like a used rag. WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE THIS IS NOT A TEST THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED AND WE ARE THE SACRIFICIAL LAMB.

    White women are fanatics. When they support a cause, they will steal from anyone (usually black women), lie, and cheat. They are straight out cray cray. This fool said that women are the n-word of the world. Basically, she said women are the niggas of the world. Who are niggaas? Black people? And we are lowest of of the world? She said it.

    Ya'll can go ahead and support crazy azz Ford who walked away with a million bucks and the cover of Time. Amy Shumer who is throwing up her white fist. Keep on supporting these white women who do nothing but benefit from the black struggle. I'm going to sit back and sip my tea and watch these fools scream and cry and continue to show their true colors. In fact, I'm going to vote for every conservative white male because white males are the only ones that can keep these Snow witches in check. #notmyfight. #theybeenrapingusforhundredsofyears.

Her point was not only the persecution but the consequences thereof. We have been decimated as a people. We have nothing except what they gave us - their religion, their values, their education, their food, their language, their standards of beauty, etc. Hell, behind each of our first names is the name of a white man who OWNED our forefathers NOT many generations ago.

  • MadGyalGem

    I'm TIRED...... Cuz I just CAINT!

  • the guest

    Bette Midler didn't originate the phrase. The phrase "Women are the N-word of the world" is commonly used by white feminist type women..The phrase has also been phrased as "Ireland is the N-word of Europe". Fat white people have reference body shaming "Racism against fat people:."

    The irony is that white people always reference and use black struggle, black plight and black oppression that is caused by white supremacy to describe and drive home the point of white hardships.

    By saying women are the n-word of the world they are calling black women n-word because BLACK WOMEN ARE WOMEN which white women tend to forget.

    Yes, women are second class citizens in the world. BUT white women are NOT subject to the same oppression as black people. It's 2018 and STILL white people feel entitled to and ownership over black people.

    White women pretty much are the n****rs of their world. I don't think Bette has the power/voice to back that up in public statements (she already putting it off on the Asian female who is the product of a culture where aborting female fetuses is more normal than birthing them...) but.... they were property who were so lowly in their culture that a black slave woman had to use her voice&power(s) to persuade white men to give white females a chance at freedom. (Like, N******, u can read the news & check the stories and legacies they've left Once freed from their chains......)

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Its bc u can definitely find white women & other non black women who are more n****** than a black woman ... from a white perspective. Black women were allowed to make money & be instrumental in their family order during some eras of slavery.... that freedom is what spurred the jealousy of white women who wanted an opportunity to at least be seen as legitimately capable as a kidnapped, enslaved african woman.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Technically, they say n******* are lazy ignorant ppl ... & white ppl aren't exempt... &as many non blacks consider themselves n****** ,...somewhere along the way ppl decided it was most derogatory when directed at enslaved Africans.

  • CocoBabe88

    I’m sorry but I do not see where or how white women (including caucasian jewish women like Ms. Midler) are suffering. None of those things she mentioned in her tweet apply to white women anywhere (besides rape, assault, sexual harassment which is duly processed even when untrue) In fact they are the most entitled and privileged group on the planet surpassing even white and black men (yes black men are the entitled, privileged group among black americans in case you’ve been under a rock). But for women of color all over the world yes. Her sentiments reign true and have already been stated by others for decades, including the late great (and conservative) Malcolm X.

  • CocoBabe88

    Yes white women have it so hard. Because after a long day of protesting they go back to their cushy upper middle class homes where their high earning white husbands provide a nice stay at home lifestyle for her and her private school attending children?

They know who black people are, which is why they continue to leech and live off of us. Deutaronmey 28 talks about the slave trade.

    Black woman better not trust these white woman. Its all a plot to divide black woman and black men even more and from some of the derogatory things ive heard SOME black woman saying in regards to black men since the start of this resurgence of this women’s rights movement lets me know thats its working. When this is all said and done white women will have progressed and black woman will be further behind because they are letting these white women use them as a pawn to push their own personal agenda forward and this post by Bette Midler proves it. She is only concerned with the forward progression of white women but she and other white woman cant push their agenda forward without the help of black woman or making it look like all women are united. #isaidwhatisaid

    If you really want to know how liberal your white friends are, check out their Facebook page. They go out, take trips, celebrate birthdays and none of their core friends are black. Every once in a while, you'll find the token black girl who emulates her white friends by getting drunk. Or you'll see the stereotypical black man hugged up on a Becky. But black people really aren't integrated in the average white person's life. They stay away from us and they aren't our allies. They are just like Bette Midler...ready to use our suffering to further THEIR cause. We're just nyggas to them...the scum of the earth.

    Not only that, people have said a lot worse about black women and folks didn’t give a rats ass or gave it a pass. Bette really should have thought twice about the words used, but people have *purposely* degraded black women, and caught less hell. And that’s why I don’t really care about this. We are too selective with our outrage.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Here we go with this divisive BS speech. I’m over it! Newsflash black women black men don’t care about us just like white feminists don’t care. White women want us to ignore our blackness, and black men want us to forget about our womanhood then turn around and complain that we’re not feminine enough. Being a black woman is so exhausting. It’s laughable that you think black men care when black men impregnate then abandon, rape, kill, degrade and mock us. Why don’t black men call out misogyny against us and build, protect, and provide for black women and children like other races of men do ? Misogyny destroyed the black family more than feminism ever could. Yeah I said it. Stop caring for dust bunnies and worthless misogynistic kneegrows, both are enemies to black women.

  • Neva RuthLess

    But black men don’t even have a patriarchy. What’s a sista to do who desires a hard working family man that will protect and provide.

  • dru and neil

    I understand what you mean, even though we live in fear of harm from men, we women set each other up to fail at times in other ways. And if people are so pissed about what Midler said, why not get equally pissed when your fav artist calls you a burnt cockroach or your other fav artist sings or raps about how unattractive your brown skin is, compared to a woman of a lighter hue, different race, or when a pretty black girl gets called a “nappy headed b*tch” by a certain Arab producer, hell black women even backed him up when that happened. Plenty of folks have been outed as racist or colorist towards black women, specifically, and we still support them.

  • roy

    I dont know your story, but it sounds like youve been hurt. You also make some valid points. However, Its not fair to generalize all black men and Perpetuate those types stereotypes which are part of the reason black men are viewed by society in the negative manner that we are today.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile....I couldn't even watch it! Ol trembling voice Susan Collins and her long as speech irritated my soul. Her speech was sooo unnecessary

  • Neva RuthLess

    Sighs. Here we go with the you must be hurt BS. Tell me I’m lying. No black men are viewed in a negative manner today because of the way they treat the women and children of their race. Black women who make and birth black people are left unprotected and abandoned while we see white men and Asian men fiercely protect and provide for theirs with pride.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Obviously she’s racist.

  • Neva RuthLess

    It’s also not fair that black women have to do the birthing, protecting, and providing for the community because black men have historically failed to. Look at Africa. Why can’t black men build and invent infrastructure for their people like every other man does? I’ll wait.

    I have to say that I'm growing more and more disappointed with black men and their obsession with Snow witches. I mean look at Kanye Kardashian. I've never seen a man so completely broken. Maybe a loving black woman could heal him but he chooses a self-centered whore as his wife. SMDH!

  • Mielle Downey

    google the Jewish "k" word she should have reference but won't say to offend other Jewish people out off respect. That hey tried to say Michael Jackson couldn't say in "They don't care about us" song . they have no respect to even elude to the" n" word.

  • CocoBabe88

    It’s considered caucasian not white. Only black people call jews white.

  • Yup, I said it

    White men go hard to protect each others privilege. That privilege doesnt include the PWT white men,only the rich connected white men but the PWT dont realize it and still believe they are better than minorities

  • Mielle Downey

    The Jewish People did not like Michael Jackson saying the K word in his song but will elude to it because they think we(Black people) are dumb as a bag of rock and will ignore the fact that they are using us as an example of what a struggle is.

    As a young black woman let me break down the black woman’s plight and why so many of us are angry and frustrated. You have white feminists in our ear saying to ignore our blackness and focus on women’s advancement, then you have black men in our ear saying to ignore our womanhood and focus on black advancement then these fools will turn around and complain that we’re not feminine enough. But black men want us to turn into warriors for black advancement. This shit is ridiculous! As black women we can’t choose between the two. White women and black men don’t know what it’s like to be a double minority. White women don’t know what it’s like to be abandoned as a whole and your men don’t build, protect, and provide for you and your children. Black men don’t know what it’s like to be treated as inferior and disrespected and belittled because of your gender. Black women don’t have the luxury of having our men build empires for us and kill for us. White women do. It’s like night and day between black women and white women. The bottom line is black women are tired. Fuck feminists and fuck these niggas too, black women have to look out for ourselves because nobody has our backs.

    Im sorry you feel this way. Once again your stereotyping an entire race of men off of your interactions with a few and what the media wants you to believe. I pray that one day you find a man of color that helps to change your perspective and outlook because contrary to your idealization there are more black men than not actually taking care of their children, providing for their families and helping to build their communities all while fighting oppression and trying to make it home everyday without being shot for a broken taillight. You speak as if your battle would be better fought with a white man instead of black man who more closely (not completely) knows your struggle. I can’t change your mind if white man are your preference but I must tell you they smell like puppies when they get wet. #wecanagreetodisagree

E know to stay focused and not to get bent out of shape whenl irritation peeps it's head in - we know we can't let an already bad situation get volatile. We have to do the same for our brothers.
    NOONE knows how it feels to be a Black woman, including BM.
    NO-ONE knows how it feels to be a Black man, including BW.
    But we BOTH know how it feels to be Black.
    We NEED each other.

    Maybe because black ppl don’t f*ck with them. I associate with yt ppl at my job but I never hang out with them afterwards. It’s a two way street.

  • T Willis

    Black men are raised by black women in black communities. If anyone is obsessed with snow witches or all things anti-black, then you need to direct your ire to the black women who raised and influenced his choices.

  • T Willis

    Well, that hasn’t stopped any of you from breeding with them unprotected and littering our community with delinquent b@$tards, who grow up to be criminals. It’s all a cycle that women can control, but instead you’d rather blame black men. Smdh.

  • T Willis

    If you know that “you”, as a black woman, is left “unprotected”, then why do “you” and 78% of black women breed illegitimate kids indiscriminately in impoverish communities? You know, ppl like you love to get on your soap boxes and preach about how black men have abandoned you or left you unprotected, yet you still continue to have unprotected sex, and birth children that you know you can’t afford, as single mothers. No one, in those situations, looks like a bigger fool than the black woman. That’s why no other race buys your perpetual victim spiel. And black men are waking up to your bullshit. that’s why they’re dating/breeding with anyone but a black woman because after being raised by you, and living amongst you in black communities, they’d rather breed out their blackness than have their lineage tainted with more of “you”.

    Haven’t jews been fighting for decades to not only be considered religiously jewish but ethnically jewish? Isn’t that why they fought a war for the state of Isreal? A homeland to solidify their ethnicity? Ok maybe bette is “considered” to be white. But most jews in Hollywood are ethnically jew. Any jewish people want to correct me feel free. But none of y’all here are jewish nor have more info than me on this. This is my understanding for years. I never heard a Jew call themselves white (except in the recent Emmy awards when Andy Samberg called himself white which I still don’t know what to make of that). Most english white people don’t consider jewish people white.

  • CocoBabe88

    Exactly. You got it! Arabs are also considered Caucasian. White is considered anglo saxxon, celts, vikings, etc. Something totally different.

  • the guest

    Jews are not white.

    Being white vs. race, class, and social engineering to be considered white in America are two very different different things.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Black women don’t listen to white feminists? Why don’t black men build, protect, provide, produce, and problem solve like men should? Where is the black mans kingdom and patriarchy?

  • Neva RuthLess

    I only wish black men acted like honorable men with integrity instead of blaming black women and white men for everything under the sun.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Why are 92% of black men’s BIRACIAL children out of wedlock and 88% on welfare? Because black men impregnate and abandon all races of women. Why do black men married to white women have the highest divorce rate in the country, while black women married to white men have the lowest? Because black men have a dysfunctional patriarchy and they don’t know how to be honorable men who build, protect, and provide. Black men need to stop blaming their poor single mothers, and look at the negro that abandoned his mother and him. Black men are the problem and stats confirm this. I said what I said.

  • the guest

    There are many Caucasian Jews who do not identify as white and many who say that Jews are black. Most say "I'm Jewish" and wear Jewish as a race.

    They select white in paperwork because there is no Jewish option. Some check other and write in Jewish.

    However, many Jews in America play fence politics meaning they do not consider Jews white but they have no problem accepting and benefiting from white privilege where they are permitted to.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Men control marriage and commitment. As women were not completely powerless but black men are not asking their baby mommas hand in marriage. Black men are anti woman and anti family.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Just shut up! I’m so sick of that Lying excuse! Other races do not harm their women at the same rate as black men. Black women have the highest rate of domestic violence and intimate partner homicide in this country only second to native women. It’s time we see the black man for who he is. How are black women only 6% of this nation but 40%+ of domestic violence victims? The war on black women needs to end, and black men need to end it.

  • Neva RuthLess

    I said what I said. Black men put being a Mann before being black every single day. Black women are in this mess alone. Black men have abundantly clear. Black women need to start listening and abandon black men the same we actually benefit a lot when we leave black men. Studies show we have very low divorce rates, devoted husbands and fathers, non black men who stick around to raise our children, very low domestic violence, we actually get and stay married. Black men don’t provide incentives to stick with them so we should continue to leave.

  • CookieMobster

    Sadly a lot of BM do feel that way. That's why you never become a baby momma. You are not supposed to have babies with someone unless you are married. If a man will not marry you, why would you have his child?

  • What???

    Good morning, let me help you pull your head out your azz for a few minutes because you probably enjoy it up in there anyway. First of all, NO ONE SHOULD BE IN YOUR EAR IF YOU DID THE RIGHT THING OR EVEN WANTED TO DO THE RIGHT THING. Your motives to do good for black advancement are suspect and being a woman doesn't nullify that. The way to advance black society is to find a good man and get married because the community changes one household at a time, not by protesting in the streets with a bunch of white lesbians, fat angry ugly rejects and freaks with black nail polish. No man cares about marrying your college degree and mastas, he wants a feminine woman that submits to the power and principles of femininity not subordination. There's a difference. Your other problem is you don't see that only 25% of white women identity as feminists and that that 25% have been using you to get there numbers up until they're ready to dump you. The other 75% of white women submit to their men, even in households that are equally if not more dysfunctional than a lot of other minorities. Second, being a DOUBLE MINORITY has benefited black women more than black men and much of white women because for it is a "TWO-FOR-ONE" where you can quality the employment of black women for affirmative action under female AND black. It saves the employer from hiring TWO PEOPLE to meet the qualification. As far as abandonment goes, black women have to choose better men. According to the CDC, more Black men are married than black women even though there are more black women in total. Who are they marrying? No man black or white is sexually attracted to their college degrees, crazy looking weaves which everyone including white women knows doesn't match their natural hair and mannish attitudes to go toe to toe with their man. White women are intelligent enough to know that they have to build with their men through their femininity. MEN BUILD EMPIRES FOR THEIR CHILDREN NOT THEIR WIVES. You're a selfish, narcissistic female to think that men build for their wives, white men build for their legacies and they start with finding a good wife. You're not special because you have a vagina and it doesn't bequeath you the right to have an empire. Get married and raise good, HUMBLE girls and boys. A lot of black women have babies by thugs early on and try and get a good man later with a whole lot of baggage or are promiscuous early in life and want a good man after sleeping with 50 dudes.

    I agree with you though fuck feminists and fuck these niggas too. No one is gonna look out for you when you violate basic principles of womanhood every race of woman follows but you stay with your head up Becky's azz seeking her approval.

  • What???

    How's your cuckholding been goin' bro? You getting good visual angles?

  • Neva RuthLess

    Lol you have to be a black man to type this nonsense. Men know their legacies are formed and birth through WOMEN. You can say whatever you want about that white men but he takes care of his women and children, wars have been fought because his women and children were starving. White men invented chivalry. White men are masters of inventing things, building, protecting, providing, and problem solving. What women wouldn’t submit to a man that respects, honors, protects, and provides for her and her children? White women submit to white men because he takes care of business. He has built a patriarchy an empire for her and her offspring to enjoy. Black men have yet to build anything. Black men only destroy. Why is it that any community on earth with more than 300 black men it’s a ghetto? Black men don’t build infrastructure they need the help of other men to provide. Why can’t black men erect buildings in the sky? Why are 92% of black men’s biracial children out of wedlock and 88% on welfare? Why do black men married to white women have the highest divorce rate in the country while black women married to white men have the lowest? Black men provide nothing to submit too. The white man knows that the white woman carries the nation literally inside of her and reproduces their people so he builds and provides for her because he knows it’s best for his children. Ever heard the quote, “ the best thing a father can do for his children and honor and respect their mother”? Black men simply don’t understand this they don’t do this. Black men have no patriarchy it’s a failed patriarchy.

  • Neva RuthLess

    I will never have a child by a black men because I don’t want to be a single mother. Why would I give black men immortality through my womb when they don’t build, protect, or provide? Black men honestly don’t know how to be a man. I wish white and other non black men would teach black men how to build skyscrapers invent life saving medicine for people in Africa and how to honor women and children. Black men are comfortable with being failures.

    Is anyone going to answer my question though? Black women and children deserve an answer. The world is dying to know. Why are black men so useless when it comes to fatherhood, building, protecting, providing, producing, and problem solving. I remember hearing a white man say us white men conquered the whole world for white women and look how they treat us. But black men don’t conquer they get conquered. They don’t build for their women and children, the white man forces black men to build an empire for his white women and children. Black men never built anything significant in Africa and Egypt and the pyramids don’t count. Something is seriously wrong with the black man. Let’s be honest and discuss.

    JANUARY 2, 2018
    CDC: Black men better fathers than white men
    By Ed Straker
    The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which I affectionately refer to as the Diseased Centers of Control, have conducted a study showing that black men make better parents than white men. The study, conducted in 2013, came to light in a recent Washington Post article on the Post's favorite topic – you guessed it! – of racism.

    The study was conducted by the CDC's Division of Vital Statistics, centering on how involved fathers are in the lives of their children. It found the following:

    1) Thirty-five percent of white fathers who don't live with their children do not eat meals with their children, while only 31% of black fathers who don't live with their children avoid meals with them.

    2) Seventy percent of black fathers help their children use the toilet, while only 60% of white fathers do.

    3) Thirty percent of white fathers who don't live with their children don't play with them, while only 25% of black fathers who don't live with their children fail to play with them.

    4) Twenty-nine percent of white fathers do not ask their children about their day, while only 21% of black fathers fail to do the same.

    5) Forty-one percent of black fathers help their kids with their homework, while only 28% of white fathers do.

    To put it bluntly, there is a crisis in the white community. It's the elephant in the room.

    We have to thank the CDC for bringing this to our attention. The CDC are funded to fight diseases, but it's great how they take taxpayer money and do all sorts of creative things with it – like this study!

    Now, what can be done to reverse the disintegration of the white family? Here are some ideas.

    1) Black fathers could get involved in Big Brother or mentoring programs for white kids with absentee dads.

    2) The government could pay white women each time they have a child out of wedlock, to help them compensate for having an uninterested boyfriend. This might inadvertently encourage white women to have more children irresponsibly, but it is really the right thing to do.

    3) Recognizing the challenges white kids face with bad parenting, schools could give disadvantaged white kids preference in admission to college and graduate schools. Even if the white kid has lower test scores, if he has a compelling life story, that should compensate for lower grades.

    4) The government should establish branches that seek out white people from disadvantaged backgrounds for preferences in hiring for jobs. The government could become an "employer of last resort" for white people from broken homes whom no one else wants to hire.

    5) Hollywood can play a role in this too, casting white men in positive roles as doctors; lawyers; judges; scientists; and other capable, educated men, to give white kids from bad homes role models to aspire to.

    Exit question: What else do you think can be done to help address this crisis in the white community?

    Lol if black men are better fathers then white men, then why do black men keep lying and accusing black women of choosing welfare over fathers? Is welfare or black men raising their children? Also then black men are at fault no? Who is raising these bad children? According to your stay black men are lol. So black men are involved in their children’s lives but they are still growing up becoming bastard baby makers and criminals so the black father are to blame? Contradiction much?

    1) "let me help you pull your head out your azz"
    ****
    I accordance with principles of black advancement, that is not the proper way to address a black woman.

    2) "get married because the community changes one household at a time"
    ***
    Exactly. It is unfortunate that the majority of black men and women fail to understand that race advancement requires understanding of marriage as the foundation of family and society.

    3) "not by protesting in the streets with a bunch of white lezbians, fat angry rejects and freaks with black nail polish on."
    ***
    Exactly.

    4) "25% of white women identity as feminists and that that 25% have been using you to get their numbers up until they're ready to dump you."
    ***
    Exactly. Feminism is dominated by white women and uses black women to advance the rights and agendas of white women. If black women are not operating and functioning for the advancement of white women, then white women have no use for black women.

    Bette isn't a racist, and was angry [outraged], and meant what she said!

    Contrary to what many or most Blacks believe because the white woman gets the ring, picket fence, and 1st dibs on jobs, our men...

    SHE'S QUITE OPPRESSED IN HER PATRIARCHAL SYSTEM IN 2018!

    As a white woman, once told me, RACISM RUNS DEEP, BUT SEXISM RUNS WIDE!

    We aren't nearly as oppressed because we don't have even our own men to take care of or own us, that double-edge sword of fake entitlement!

    I think it’s wise that you first marry and then have children with the loving, kind, responsible, upstanding, and reliable man with whom you mutually fall in love.

  • the guest

    I affirmed your other points.

    Feminism is at fault for the destruction of the black family. Women's Lib movement put white women in offices and black women on welfare.

    The evil and racist white feminists pushed for black and latino women to leave their husbands and get on welfare to be "independent".

    They brainwashed black women to believe that they didn't need black men while white feminists never gave up traditional married family life.

    Marriage is the foundation of family, society, and generational wealth building. Poor black people are especially not getting that.

    Poor Mexicans marry and stay married even when they are dirt poor. They know that social wealth is in marriage and family. Black are brainwashed to focus on individualist materialism, not family as the foundation.

    Exactly.

  • the guest

    EXACTLY

  • Neva RuthLess

    Shut your mouth. Feminism did not tell women to leave their husbands for welfare. Thats a lie from black men. Welfare was fo rwhite women when their husbands left them for younger women. Black men destroyed the black family with their misogyny and being useless as men when it come to building protecting and providing. The truth is coming out.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Ask women from that era how many men were molesting their own daughters, beating their wives, drinking and smoking up the rent money. Black men caused the destruction of the black family. What sane woman would kick a loving responsible husband and father out of the home for a can of government cheese? Yall sound so stupid, you just hate black women. Enough is enough stop blaming black women for black mens irresponsibility and worthlessness. Its not black womens or white mens fault neither is it feminism fault that black men are out of order. Black men need to sort themselves out, they are inherently dysfunctional.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Stop being delusional and in denial. No man on earth impregnates then abandons like african american men, jamaican men, and other nationalities of black men, Nice try though. In 2018 we hold black men accountable.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Im not white.

  • Neva RuthLess

    What about the agenda blaming black women for black mens dysfunction and the communitys ill on black women deserting black men for feminism? Right lets keep babying black men who are gown ass men.

  • What???

    I disagree with one thing which is that feminism is at fault for the destruction of the black family. I believe that what’s at fault is envy which is a derivative of immorality. The black race is unadmittingly immoral as our women lost the karmic benefits of morality to the seduction and illusion of a shortcut to happiness with feminism. Our women then became the white woman’s biggest sycophants. Morality may be a dry boring topic for most but morality IS profitable and provides the pleasures that they see on TV without the side effects of indignifing themselves.

  • Rainbowbelow

    ??

  • the guest

    Agreed. Morality is social and cultural capital. without morality, a race is socially and culturally bankrupt. Monetary withstanding, the world views black people as bankrupt. Feminism uses and abuses black women as slave labor for the cause of white female advancement.

  • the guest

    May I ask, did you grow up around white people?

    For black people who did as I did, we know that white fathers also abandon children because we had white friends without fathers, white men who ran from child support, and procreated with more than one woman in the same town and did so irresponsibly which explains so many white women on welfare.

    There are many white children born to white fathers raised in fatherless homes. However, white fatherless homes are not stigmatized as black fatherless homes.

I don't want bothers me more- the fact that a white woman had the audacity to imply that sexism was more pervasive than racism, or the fact that you are repeating her nonsense as if it is some profound reality.

    And then...

    "We aren't nearly as oppressed because we don't have even our own men to take care of or own us, that double-edged sword of fake entitlement!" <<<< What the hell does that even mean?

  • SweetTEE

    Exactly right

  • Blaque Mahogany

    No one with any historical or contextual knowledge of the African American's experience in America could possibly compare the white woman's struggle to that of the African American. Particularly, the white woman's 2018 feminism movement to the AA's struggle during the Jim Crow era (that's when AA's were more heavily referred to as the N-Word).

    This is just further proof to me that a lot of these white allies get far too much credit. They actually lack the capacity, or the desire, to fully acknowledge the AA's experience and the resulting affects of that experience. They can acknowledge that maybe shooting a teenager for walking through a predominantly white neighborhood is racist, but they don't really understand/acknowledge the insidious pervasive nature of white supremacy and how continually oppresses and marginalizes AAs.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I totally understand your comments, given the optics, the messages, the obstacles! Here's my VERY LONG TAKE...

    But, as a latch key kid from the hood, who was always out of my environment, worked as an admin (fly on the wall) for senior level executives, as an entrepreneur have engaged with all kinds of people, a people person, who will asks 30 questions (human nature is fascinating) of anyone, or people tell me their life story (the rich, poor, and in between) or things they've never revealed, or my interest in how other people and cultures live, majored in psychology and marketing, avid reader of biographies, love documentaries, a history buff, this is MY viewpoint!

    The Civil Rights Movement did more for White Women than all blacks combined, IN MY OPINION!

    They were chattel and we were slaves (which was way worse), but the caveat was that our very survival depended largely on the Black Woman's self-sufficiency that history conveniently leaves out of the picture!

    But, Black Women are Phenomenal and have always been feminists, liberated, trendsetters, and most imitated!

    Toni Morrison says it best, IN MY OPINION:

    “True the Black woman did the housework, the drudgery; true, she reared the children, often alone, but she did all of that while occupying a place on the job market, a place her mate could not get or which his pride would not let him accept. And she had nothing to fall back on: not maleness, not whiteness, not ladyhood, not anything. And out of the profound desolation of her reality she may very well have invented herself.”

    Toni Morrison

  • Rhyme and Reason

    White women indeed have a DIFFERENT STORY, and a whole lot of catching up to do (freedom, self-awareness, authenticating, actualizing) because her life and image is a sham in our patriarchal society, IN MY OPINION!

    We come out of the gate without any illusions, and make choices based on our bad history in this country. I just love the freedom that comes with making your own way, especially, when you know your history and love where you come from, the strength, the beauty, along with the pain!

    Why more Black Women have started new businesses over the last few years (everyday women) than any other group, we're more than the perpetuated baby mammas, unflattering reality TV Stars, how my girl, Rihanna got many in the makeup industry shook, now trying to follow her lead, or people like Shonda Rhimes did what was deemed impossible before her, or the writings of Nikki Giovanni or Alice Walker or what Nieslen's has to say about us!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Michelle Obama or Kamala Harris isn't an anomaly!

    We (Black People) have all the tools to escape whatever ails us, and all of us don't live in despair!

    Racism is easier to get around, leaving a man who might not too healthy is much harder! Dick Gregory said, "We always knew how to fool white folks"...everyday when we go to jobs where biases certainly exist!

    The violence (abuse) against women and children disturbs me way more than racism because you can learn on your own, educate yourself, work, pray, worship how you please, home school your kids, help other parents who don't have your substance, resources or know how!

    Black women, all women finding healthy relationships is a true struggle that can create lifelong scars and negative familial patterns for generations!
