I feel VERY strongly about this one, too. I've grown up seeing White women chase after Black men, but cannot connect to his Black female family members and make zero effort to befriend other Black women. They fetishize Black men and Black women don't fit into their narrative. And we are also viewed as a threat because they know we are already connected to Black men and they must CREATE a connection. It has been nails on a chalkboard to me since the beginning of time.
