Black Women: White Bigotry's Unindicited co-Conspiritors? As much discussion as their was around the 'jungle fever' campaign aimed at Harold Ford's supposed lust for white women, the one group which escaped scrutiny in his downfall is black women. Anyone who pays attention to black culture knows of the rift between black men and black women, most particularly highlighted by misogynist rap music and black women's low marriage rates.

Now, Booker Rising, a website for young moderate-conservative blacks highlights the obvious but mostly-overlooked point: that Ford, with his penchant for 'non partisan' dating, shall we say, may have been the straw that broke Tennessee's sisters' backs.

I know I'm slow after waking, but...

Huh?

The predicate seems to be missing from your statement...

One of the ironies of the whole thing is that one look at Harold Ford Jr.'s face tells us that he is probably the product of some bye-gone white man's lust for a black woman.

Well I quess if you are brotha who loves the other race you can't

1. run for higher office

2. have your blackness challenged

3. Have the white boys and sistas conspire to help a brotha lose an election

4. Wow life in america If you are a Black Woman Boning a white guy

5. The future of better race realtions because Black Man with an advanced degree ain't S&*T

YOU SISTAS AND WHITE BOYS CAN THE WHOLE WORLD JUST LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE !!!

NO WONDER WM/BW ARE SO COMPATIBLE RUTHLESS TO THE CORE.


Harold Ford deserved to lose because he was a

1. weak candidate
2. politcal issues
3. Too conservative for democrats
4. Was not that different from Corker

I have a saying that goes back to my childhood when in lived in the "hood" and the hookers kicked the pimps to the curb in the late 70's If you had a choice between a fake pimp driving a 85 cutlass and the geniune article driving a 75 Caddy with three girls in tow, always choose the real one at least you know where you stand. Ford is the cutlass driving pimp trying to run a on raceless agenda in a state where it matters and when push came to shove, Black Women and White Men were angred by this light- skinned never spent any considerable time expect to ride on daddy's coattails. Ford should have known better, If he lived in New York or California, no one would have batted an eye.

Ms. Dickerson, Black Men and Black Women don'r have anything in common except skin color and would have voted for Corker out of sheer spite.
