You’ve probably heard the myth. The whole notion that black women can not get along. At times it brings itself to reality but most of the time it is overplayed. Or maybe you’ve had first hand experience passing by that one black woman who looks you up and down like a beast sizing its prey. The media has also done its part in rooting for the separation of sisterhood. Everything from the movies depicting jealous, envy and just pure raw hate among sistas. We’ve seen this proof from Angela Basset dissing Halle Berry for her Oscar win in “Monster’s Ball” saying:
“It’s about character, darling,” she told the publication. “I wasn’t going to be a prostitute on film. I couldn’t do that because it’s such a stereotype about black women and sexuality.”(Source)
Similarly we had Nia Long dissing Beyonce’s acting skills saying:
“When you see certain people—we won’t name names—they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes.’”
Enough said. There is that time where you see black women in unity and then a time when hostility. A reason these black women can’t get along is because of being jealous of each other. Now I will honestly state that by far all I ever hear most black women say is, “They are just jealous of me!” I do believe sometimes in life that cliche rings very true; however everybody can’t be jealous of you. Anyways, I like to see sistas get along with everyone.
I think that once black women become more confident within themselves they won’t readily recognize when or if someone is ever jealous of them!
