A sistas’ been bizzee! Between the culmination of a performance for the whole school at the day job, Black Thang rehearsals and keeping up with The TCC. I’ve been exhausted! I have a sore throat to prove it too!
Anyway-the Fan page of The TCC on Facebook has been heating up with several conversations on interracial dating, angry black women and the black man’s delimia. Is the white girlfriend at fault? Why is she to blame for the conflict between black men and black women’s relationships?
I just finished watching Tim Alexanders’ Diary of a Tired Black Man which is part documentary/part narrative in style. Mr. Alexander talks about these very same topics that come up in Black Thang. Black Thang by Ato Essandoh was written over 7 years ago. Isn’t it ironic that we’re still dealing with the same issues? Are “strong black women” just “angry black women in disguise?” When do black women realize that the pain, abuse, anger that they inherited can not sustain in a “real” relationship?
Are black men just so tired that they seek love outside of their race? Join us Monday, December 28, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss this very idea! See you at our next A La Carte: The Open Rehearsal Edition!
