Is Clubhouse Promoting Black Trauma, Elitism and Dating Bias?

Everybody is “getting paid” & successful except in finding Black love

  • Black men can date whomever, but Black women need to date only Black men otherwise we’re betraying our race
  • Black women need to look white — but can’t sound white
  • Black women need to shut up and grateful — if we get a Black man, but white women have the right to demand respect, financial security and anything they want because “they’re worth it”

I haven’t been on a date for over a year. White men flirt with me all the time. I’m just not interested — every time one approaches me, I sadly think of all the Privilettas I encounter and people like Captain Fish Sticks on Fox, Derek Chauvin and 6 Degrees of Separation and I just can’t.
