Robin Thicke Tries To Rule Black Women While Enjoying His Half-Black Woman

The news recently broke when Robin Thicke had the audacity to tell black women who to date.   First and foremost, Robin Thicke is a white man and cannot feel the emotional hurts and pains of a black woman, he is just married to a bi-racial one.  He possibly thinks he has the right to give advice to black women whom to date also because of his soulful music, how ever that's just music he makes and no doubt what has made him a superstar to live the rich lifestyle.   Robin Thicke has no right to open up his mouth and tell black women whom they should date without realizing first, it was black men who left black women for other races.  These were his alleged words to all black women who desire to date outside of their race. 

When asked by Essence,  if black women should consider dating interracially, in light of the media declaring  there’s a shortage of eligible black male suitors.  Thicke replied: 'I think that’s ridiculous. There are so many good Black men out there that are hardworking, decent, and handsome, you know? To start that rumor is as bad as starting any other negative rumor. There are great Black men out there. There are only a few good White men — trust me. (Laughs) Good luck finding a good White man who understands your journey. I only have three White friends. I’ve got 20 Black male friends, who are all good men who take good care of their wives, and good care of their children. I know amazing Black men.'

Since Robin Thicke has been married to his half-black wife, all of a sudden does he feel like he is a slave-master with a plantation in charge of black women?   He acts as though he has this plantation and he can push black women into the arms of black men whom insult them of their dark-skin, kinky hair and every other Afrocentric feature God has given them.  His statement was very offensive, because he could never be in the mind or soul of a black woman.  He does not know what we feel nor is he familiar with the history of black men leaving as fathers and abusing us a uncles and cousins.   He seems to be ignorant.  Robin Thicke boasts on having so many black male friends, but is not familiar with the conflict within the black race, between black men and black women.   He cannot tell any of us black women about all the good black men that are out there, if he is not familiar with the soul of a black woman, especially one who is not of a bi-racial descent.  

Why doesn't Robin Thicke preach to all of the gays and lesbians who are leaving the opposite sex, lying on God that they were born that way?   Why doesn't Robin Thicke advise women to go back to men and men go back to women?   That's more of an issue he needs to be dealing with, because he advice to black women is completely out of his range he does not have a right to tell any of us what to do, if he is not familiar with being black or even living his life as a black woman.  How dare any white man whom has enjoyed his marriage with a black or a half-black woman give advice for us to give black men a chance?   There are many black men who do not even want black women and will tell us to our face in front of their friends and family.  For many years, black men have told us we were not beautiful and have been so bold to flaunt their white, Latino and Asian women in front of us to see how we receive it.   

Robin Thicke seems to be very ignorant of the history of the black family.  He does not even know how many black men have neglected black women neither does he care.  He just wants to make it known that he is upon a pedestal and has such power to speak, because Essence asked him and secondly, he has gotten a taste of a black woman whom reminds everyone she is not all black like the average bi-racial person. Who does Robin Thicke think he is?  He is not in a superior position to tell black women what to do, after they have experienced so much neglect and rejection from black men.  Now, he may rule his half-black wife, but he cannot rule the entire race of black women. Furthermore, Thicke is acting as though we as black women do not have any rights while being enforced to accept black men and their white, Latino and Asian wives, shame on him for giving advice to to us black women whom are free to choose any man we may desire to date and marry.   Robin Thicke, 'hear the souls of black women loud and clear, close your mouth and do not rule our lives as free black women.'  

In conclusion, even after all of the understanding of why black women choose to date and marry outside of their race, we still need to know how do these black women deal with racism while married to their white husbands. How do their white husbands comfort them while they endure such discrimination?  This is the only reason why we may not have considered it in our previous articles.
