AUTHOR INTERVIEW: HASANI PETTIFORD
“Why We Hate Black Women: Deconstructing the Paradox of Black Female Masculinity.”
There was a time when the African-American male was public enemy number one. Now, in many people’s eyes—especially in many Black men’s eyes—it’s the black woman. Whether due to perception or misconception, one thing is for certain: The African-American woman is arguably the most hated female on the universe.
Don’t think so? Think again.
Whether it’s the Black woman’s Ms. Independent-I-Don’t Need-A-Man attitude, lack of gratitude (for the Black man, of course) or upward corporate latitude—according some, Black women are doing something that places them in the most-hated positions in their homes, relationships, workplaces, society and, especially, in the media. Then, again, maybe it’s not Black women at all. Maybe Black men (with the aid of the media) are unjustifiably displacing their anger, resentment and discontent with their own lives—and their own failure to succeed—on the Black woman.
