While in the airport for my flight to Denver, I decided to stop at one of the newstands to grab a magazine to read. I was perusing the different magazines when the glorious face of Idris Elba caught my eye. Now, you know I'm a sucker for Idris so I had to pick the magazine up. The magazine I picked up turned out to be the August issue of Essence magazine. Now, it's been months since I let my subscription to Essence lapse so I wasn't sure if I wanted to support the publication by giving them my money, but the allure of Idris in that white lines shirt was too much for a sista to bare. I had to have it if only to bask in his divine masculinity. Lord have mercy...LOL!!!
So, once I got pass the cover (you know it took me a few minutes), I decided to check out the contents of the magazine. Of course I was expecting much since it was the lack of content as to why I allowed my fourteen year subscription to my once favorite magazine expired. It was during my scan when I came across a very fascinating article entitled Black Women Behaving Badly. That article resonanted with me so much that I decided to dedicate an entire show this upcoming Sunday on to it.
The dynamics between black women is something that is very confusing. I could never understand how women that can hold up an entire community can have such disdain and contempt for each other. Where does this distrust stem from? Why are we so weary of one another? I mean come on, we've all heard the whispers, "Who do she think she is...", "B!tch thinks she's all that....", "I'll take your man..." and the list goes on. Trust me, if you haven't heard someone saying this stuff then you are probably the one saying it. Where does this insecurity stem from? I realize that this is not a problem only facing the black community, but since I am a resident of said community it is the aspect in which I would like to focus.
So, I'm asking everyone to please tune in to Savvy Talk Radio this upcoming Sunday August 23, 2009 at 6 pm EST as we begin to tackle this very tough topic.
