Gentrification and the Black Diaspora (Part 3)...Why don't Black people buy abandoned properties in their neighborhoods?


About two years ago, I was having a conversation with a brotha who let me know he was a freemason.

Well, let me clarify this statement. The brotha asked me, “Are you are traveling man?” This is how freemasons identify themselves in casual conversations. Now, the reason the brotha broached this question to me, is during the course of our discussion, I started waxing philosophic on a couple of political issues; and I guess the brotha was impressed enough to let me know who he really was.

Anyway, during our talk, we spoke on which cities we were born in. He said he was born and raised in D.C. Then he began telling me how he had a chance to buy one of the 'row-houses' in his old neighborhood, but he passed it up. He then told me, post-gentrification, how that row-house is literally worth a million dollars. Then he quoted a line he was famous for, saying Black people 'don't think' about these types of issues, until it's too late.

I also remember a couple of times where the Black male blogger who inspired me to write this Blog, said in regards to the gentrification of our neighborhoods, that we Black folks 'screwed up' our chances to buy abandoned properties in our communities. He then went on to say, that our being bought out of our residences was essentially our fault.

And a video I saw of a Black man named 'Javonne M. Clark', had him sharing an anecdote about how some mexicans bought an abandoned property next to his, and how they 'rebuilt' the house seemingly overnight. Javonne said the property had been abandoned for years...then he started crying. Now, people commenting on this vid wondered why he was bawling. They waxed philosophic on his possibly having emotional problems or baggage leading him to be that emotional. But I knew Javonne was envious over the amount of unity he saw displayed in these spanish people, and he wondered why our people didn't have that same kind of unity. And seeing this vid, more than anything, is why I'm writing this post.

Also, just a couple of days ago, another brotha I spoke to, said that in regards to our being pushed out of our neighborhoods, that if the situation gets too dire, educated Black folks would intervene and basically save us.

Now, before I discuss anything psychological, let me bring up a socio-political fact.

In an analysis of every home purchase loan application processed in 2011 and 2012 in the states of Virginia and Maryland; 300,00 filings by banks and other lending institutions under the 'Home Mortgage Disclosure Act' found that African-americans were twice as likely than whites to be denied a home mortgage loan.

Now, you're probably thinking, well, there's gotta' be differentiating credit scores, income, educational achievements, etc. to consider between these whites and their Black counter-parts. Well, if those are your thoughts, then check out what else this study found...

Among Virginia home loan applicants, both Black and white, with incomes between $100,000 and $125,000 and similar credit scores, the denial rates were more than 15 percent for African-americans and 7 percent for whites.

For applicants with the same income bracket and credit scores in the Richmond metro area, the denial rates were more than 14 percent for Blacks and less than 5 percent for whites.

For Virginians making $75,000 to $100,000 a year, the denial rates were 19 percent for African-americans and 9 percent for caucasians.

In Maryland, among loan applicants with incomes between $50,000 and $75,000, the denial rates were 23 percent for African-americans and 10 percent for whites.

Among Maryland loan applicants making $100,000 to $125,000, the denial rates were 19 percent for Blacks and 7 percent for caucasians.

So right outta' the gate, if you wanna' purchase a home mortgage, or invest in some abandoned properties in your neighborhood, if you're Black, the chips are stacked against you. Now, if you're a Black man or woman reading this, I'm not trying to dissuade you from buying a home, I'm just letting you know what the real deal is with the majority of the bankers and brokers you'll be talking to. Forewarned is forearmed. But more than this, I wanna' answer the question of what might be stopping Black people en masse from purchasing vacant properties in the 'hood.

With that said, the bigger, or biggest hurdle to our purchasing these properties, starts with what Black men and women learn in the american educational system. Now let me explain what I'm talkin' about...

If you've been looking at this Blog for a hot minute, you know I talk, ad nauseam sometimes, about what transpires in the american educational system apropos to Black americans.

With that said, let me just blurt out the fact that within the confines of the american educational system, Black men and women are conditioned to hate themselves more than any other type of person on the planet, because we have the most genetic power to breed our oppressors, i.e. white people, out of existence.

This is why we get taught that our ancestors were slaves, while no other ethnic group does, and why the 'cross-hairs' of white fascism are on our backs, literally, more than anyone else.

Now, you might be thinking, so what's that gotta' do with reasons why our people don't buy up vacant properties in our communities? Here's the answer: if you as a Black person are taught that EVERYTHING to do with you and your people is worthless...then why the hell would you invest any money in a community full of your people?

I'm a 'realist', so I'm gonna' keep it all the way real; if the average Black person living in an impoverished area gets some money, the last thing they're gonna' think about is buying some property in that community. The first thing they're gonna' think about doing, is getting the hell out of the 'hood. And even if they're not living in an impoverished Black community, they'd never think about buying up properties in an impoverished Black neighborhood, 'cause again, they've been taught by white fascists that anything to do with their people and these areas are worthless.

That's until whites, or some other type of non-Black persons, start buying up these properties. Then, the average Black person will say, Oh, now I see the worth in these structures.

And that's what I relayed to the brotha who was a freemason. That the reason he didn't jump at buying that 'row-house' was because he'd been conditioned to believe his people, his neighborhood, and ultimately he himself, was worthless in comparison to white and non-Black folks. Of course I used different words, but that's the message I imparted to him. And this is what I'd relay to Javonne M. Clark about why our people don't have the same type of unity that he saw displayed in the actions of those mexicans. And let me add, if you don't know what's been done to our people, in regards to america's white fascist social order conditioning us to hate ourselves more than anyone else, you as a Black person will be doomed to hating yourself and everyone who looks like you 'til the day you die. And this is the truest goal of white fascism in regards to our Diaspora.

Now, in regards to another brotha telling me that educated Black folks would essentially save us if this wave of gentrification got too dire; I'd like to tell you about an impoverished Black neighborhood and what happened when an educated Black person became its mayor.

Cory Booker became the mayor of Newark, New Jersey in 2006. Shortly thereafter, he introduced several initiatives to both reduce crime and get more jobs for Newarkers who needed them.

In 2007 Cory approved funding to build the 'Prudential Center', a massive entertainment arena, in Newark. As a result, a Hilton Hotel was built right next to it. A short time later, a Starbucks was built close to both these structures. This automatically tripled rents around that area, and almost overnight what was once a predominately poor/working class Black neighborhood,
became an exclusive community for white 'yuppies'. Point being, that it's the educated token negroes, like Cory Booker, who not only won't save us, but who are actually perpetrating this wave of gentrification against us.

And you can witness the same thing happening in every major city in this country (Jay-Z and Brooklyn, New York's 'Barclays Center').

So what's the solution?

First, I think our biggest salvation lies in our young people, if for no other reason than they're showing us they're not afraid to revolt against white fascism (Ferguson, Missouri/Baltimore, Maryland). Second, we older Black folks need to provide them with an educational system that teaches them reading, writing and 'rithmatic, without the self-hating messages given to them in the american educational system. This is why I'm such an advocate of building a Black Nationalist 'Home-schooling' system. We may not be able to get the results we want out of whitey's P.S. whatever school, but what we can have more control over is our own home-schooling 'co-operatives' that teach our children the greatness of our history, and our contemporary culture(s).

Our children minus the american educational system's agenda of teaching them to hate themselves, equals a generation of Black folks that will have infinitely less problems uniting and working with each other.

Now, you may say, I don't have time to do start one of these organizations, I understand that too...and what we can do in that case is donate our time and money to an existing one. Whatever you can contribute to one of these co-operatives will not go in vain, even if it's a couple of notebooks for our children. Myself and some brothas have contributed both money and time to one of these local organizations, and trust me, what we've gotten back in terms of watching these kids flourish and grow in a truly loving and nurturing learning environment, is beyond satisfying.

So now that we've identified the problem and the solution, the only thing left to do is to get to work. And the sooner, the better. 'Cause if you're a Black man or woman reading this and one day you see a Starbucks being built in your neighborhood, I hope you know what, or who's coming right after.

Later...

3 reasons why Black men should not date fat white women (Part 2)...sandy young: portrait of an angry white female...


At approximately 5:06 P.M. yesterday, I was in a pizzeria waiting for my order, while staring at the store's flat-screen TV. The TV flashed a news report about a white woman who said she'd been raped by Black men...and lo and behold, it was found out that she'd made the whole thing up.

The news report failed to mention whether the Black men who were falsely accused had been released from prison.

An hour before this, I received a set of venomous comments from a white woman calling herself 'sandy young'. Now, I don't know whether this woman's name is a pseudonym or not, but it seems good ole' sandy wasn't too pleased about my original post in this series titled, '3 reasons why Black men should not date fat white women'.

And judging by the way these comments were written, either sandy was asleep during her english classes or she had steam rushing out of her ears when she wrote this, or both. But rather than trying to decipher her sentiments for her, I'll let you read them for yourself. So here's the first of sandy's comments:

'I read all of this an I'm a white woman an every bit of this is bullshit. I have a biracial son he's never bn made of because of his color an I'm not fat unintelligent or any other egatibe things,to b thought of. I think it's really sad that who or what black person wrote this is a straight racist an obviously very jealous of the white woman. .which I can really understand why? We (i) don't wear weave, I don't wear fake nails, an I don't have to put my ass in Eva ones face to b noticed. So w that being said let's down grade each other an make it bigger than what it is,cause it's not worth it. No one can control who another person loves'

Now, I also want everyone reading this to know that miss sandy published this same comment three times, back to back, beneath my post. So I guess she wanted me to know how strongly she stood behind these sentiments.

But sandy didn't stop there, here's more of her comments:

'An one other thing ever black man I have been w has used me I can't believe that 1 race is so lazy that they jump from woman to,woman just to have a place to live an whoever thinks that white women are w black men because of there genitals!!!!!. Guess what. Everyone I HAVE BEEN W SHOULD BE A MEMBER OF THE ITTY BITTY DICK COMMITTEE. So believe me pens size has nothing to do w it. If I want something bigger I'll go to my own race ....'

And miss sandy was so pissed, she actually published this comment twice, back to back, behind the last three. And then, she republished her first comment again after this one.

Now, originally, I had planned to publish a different post...but when I saw these comments, I felt obligated to address miss sandy's opinions immediately.

So without further ado...let's go in...*wringing hands* 

First off, after sancho, sandy, or whatever she's calling herself, says she's a white woman and everything I've written in my first post is B.S.; she says some unintelligable things about her bi-ethnic son and states emphatically that she's not fat. Then she says it's sad that I'm a 'straight racist' and I'm obviously jealous of white women. Then she goes on to expound on reasons why I'm jealous, saying white women don't wear weaves, fake nails and have no penchant for putting their 'ass in everyone's face to be noticed'.

And notice how sandy went after both Black men AND women. So she's basically exposing how she feels about Black PEOPLE on the whole! 

Right off the rip, the reason sandy doesn't put her 'ass in everyone's face to be noticed', is because she, and the overwhelming majority of white women, DON'T HAVE AN ASS!

Basically, the average white woman is built like a boy. Her back extends down her legs, without a hint of a curve.

Now you might say, we'll MontUHURU, I've seen a lot of white women with nice posteriors. I have too. But the reason this is happening, is the majority of them bought 'em off some plastic surgeon.

And as for white women not wearing fake hair and nails...what?!

The fake nails thing is pretty much common knowledge, but I've seen, especially in the last couple of years, white women wearing hair extensions. Why? 'Cause Black women made them popular. 

And I'm not even gonna' talk about how white women inject silicone into their lips, along with their butts. And once again, why are they doing this? Because white women are the ones who are really jealous...they're jealous of the Black woman's shape. So they're doing every unnatural thing in the world to copy it. And I won't even go into how white women continue to tan themselves brown. 

The last line of the first dumb-founded comment, is how no one can control who they love. Then on the very next comment, sandy talks about how EVERY Black man has used her for easy sex and a place to live. 

Let me do a little decoding for everyone reading this. The reason this woman says she can't control who she loves, while speaking so disparagingly about Black men and women, is because this is/was a fat white woman who was rejected by white and other non-Black men. Cause if one Black man was abusing you, and you clearly feel superior to them, and you have white men courting you, at what point wouldn't you just be with one of your own kind? 

In my original post, I talk about how fat white women treat Black men deplorably, because they feel both superior to us and slighted by the fact that they're not with one of their own men. They feel they have to settle for dating a Black man because the white or non-Black dating pool, has been closed off to them. Now, behind sandy feeling superior to Black men and not really wanting to be with one, she obviously made whichever Black man she was dating miserable, thus, they left her abrasive white ass. Now sancho, or sandy, won't tell us this, but any sane person can deduce that this is what happened in her last relationship based on her comments. And sandy will never be self-aware enough to realize that this is the reason she's alone, and probably will be for the rest of her life. 

Furthermore, the reason I wrote my original post, is because in 9 out of 10 instances, when I saw fat white women dealing with Black men on a dating website, I saw how beligerent, argumentative, abrasive and cantankerous they were to us...just like sandy. These white women did things around Black men they wouldn't dare do around non-Black men. They showed us no respect, and when the Black man left them because of it, these white woman said something was wrong with us.

Then she says there's no reason a white woman would be with a Black man just for his sexual prowess, or penis size. She also says every Black man she's dated had a small penis, and if she wanted a man with a large phallus, she would date one of her own kind. 

Once again, I ask, if just one under-endowed Black man was abusing you, at what point wouldn't you just dump him and be with one of your own kind?

This obvious bit of common sense, and the fact that sandy has shown she feels superior to Black people, says she never had a chance to date one of her own kind. At least not for more than a night.

But let me speak to the mythology of the Black man's phallus/sexual prowess for a sec'. Now, anyone who's looked at this Blog for a hot minute knows that I never talk about Black men having larger phallus' than any other kind of man. Now, Black men can definitely hold their own in this department, but for the most part, that's a stereotype. Conversely, what is true, is that EVERY BLACK MAN has the MOST GENETIC POWER to breed white people, and every other kind of non-Black person, out of existence. AND THIS is the reason why the bulls-eye of white fascism is on our backs most exclusively. 

Now, do I aggrandize the Black man's genetic power in my posts? 

HELL YEAH!!! 

Listen, at least ten times a day, I remind myself that no other man can create one of me, but I can create every other kind of man. You know why? 'Cause every facet of this and every other white fascist social order says, I should hate myself and everyone who looks like me.

So do I hold my chin up a little higher when I walk down the street?

YA' DAMN STRAIGHT!!

And 'til the day I die, I'll hold my genetic power as a Black man in the highest esteem!

Moving on...

Now, ultimately, my question for fat ole' sancho, or sandy is, if all the societal chips are stacked in your favor, especially when it comes to standards of beauty...WHY THE HELL ARE YOU MAD?! 

What, it's not enough that every person on the planet has been conditioned to think women who look like you are the prettiest on earth? You need more of an advantage?

I'm one man, with one Blog, and one opinion...so you can't justify getting this emotional, when you've got scores of people and circumstances stroking your ego as a white woman. 

Or are you just that stupid, that you don't realize what kind of advantage the white privilege affords you?

You've NEVER had to deal with being made to hate yourself and everyone who looks like you in the american educational system, or in america's media.

You've NEVER had guns and drugs flown and floated into your neighborhood, with the intent of killing off as many of your people as possible.

And whether you realize it or not, you've NEVER had this government do everything in its power to destroy families that looked like yours. 

Now, to all the Black men and women reading this, I wanna' let you know that sandy's comments are showing you the real face of white womanhood. Not the liberal or feminist face white media wants you to see. 

I want you to see how sancho, or sandy, went after Black men AND women. Now If she thought I was a Black woman, she could have gone after Black women exclusively, but she made it her business to go after Black men too.

Furthermore, in regards to Black women and the 'Angry Black woman' syndrome; I think it's important to see what the 'Angry white woman' looks like to bring some balance to this feminine equation. And mind you, if sandy were any kind of deep thinker, she'd realize, shes got NOTHING to be mad about.

When I encounter an angry Black woman, I can connect her attitude directly to the white fascist agenda to destroy the Black family. This is what seperated the Black man from the Black woman, and this is why for decades, she's had to 'fend for herself. THAT'S WHY SHE'S MAD!

Now, if you're a Black man reading this, am I saying this woman is easy to get along with...NO!

BUT IT'S IMPERATIVE THAT YOU KNOW WHY THE BLACK WOMAN IS ANGRY!

'Cause if you don't, here's what happens...

First, you'll think ALL Black women are that way, and you'll wind up hating the whole of Black women.

Second, you'll reinforce reasons why you don't like being around Black people on the whole. 

And third, ultimately, what the first and second thoughts will reinforce, is why you should hate yourself for being Black. 

So once again, the moral of this story Black man, is if you're not gonna' put up with the bad attitude of a Black woman, don't put up with a fat white woman's bad attitude either.

With this post, you should have a better understanding of where a Black woman's attitude is coming from. And now, you should also understand that an angry fat white woman's attitude is coming from a place of pure conceit, superficiality, and ultimately, from a place of false superiority.

The insidious ingenuity of Kehinde Wiley...


Kehinde Wiley was born in Los Angeles, California in 1977. His mother is African-american and his father is Nigerian.

Showing an early interest in painting, Kehinde's mother enrolled him in art classes as a youth. At age 12, Kehinde spent a short time in a Russian art school. He went on to earn his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1999, and eventually attained an MFA from Yale University in 2001.

Now, what makes Kehinde's paintings so groundbreaking, is how he takes the portraiture of european Renaissance artists and places young Black men and women in these works. Not only does he place these young Black and brown men and women in these 'classical' european settings, but he also infuses these paintings with artifacts of modern day culture. Take for instance a painting like Jacques-Louis David's 'Napoleon crossing the Alps' (above); not only has Kehinde replaced Napoleon's image with that of a brotha on horseback, but what he also does, is have the brotha in the painting wear baggy combat fatigue pants and Timberland boots (you can click on the painting to see this a bit more clearly). So essentially, Kehinde's breathing new life into these stuffy, centuries old painting's for a new generation.

And might I add, as a former art student myself, I can't help but swoon at this brotha's level of artistic virtuosity and celebrity. I've always had a fondness for portraiture and 'high art' stylings. And this is what I would've pursued had I not found my love for the written word. I also love that the brotha has traditionally African facial features. And I guess this is one of the reasons why he wanted to represent 'real life' brothas in his paintings.

On top of all this, Kehinde speaks french and chinese fluently, and has a better command of the english language than I do.

But as I scanned Kehinde's oeuvre of art pieces, I noticed a disturbing trend.

I saw that throughout his many works, we see two or more brothas and sistas in his paintings, but what we don't see is a Black man and woman together in any of his portraits. And what we never see in his paintings, are Black men and women in a loving embrace.

If you look at my triptyched header, you'll see two more of Kehinde's paintings. On Kehinde's left, we have his painting of three brothas, and to his right, we have a couple of Black women embracing.

Now, what Kehinde does to find models is something he calls, 'street casting'. Where he literally goes into city streets and finds Black men and women for his art pieces. And in a PBS documentary done on him called, 'An economy of grace', I noticed when he picked Black women for his paintings, he especially picked females who had multiple facial piercings and extremely short cropped hair. Basically, he was looking for sexually conflicted or gay Black women.

Now, Kehinde is gay himself; and I knew this, but in this documentary he actually professed this openly. Also, Kehinde is a white fascist freemason. And I'll show you him flashing a freemasonic hand signal in the short vid at the end of this.

So ultimately, what does this mean?

Understand, Kehinde's work is probably the only time, or one of the only times, a Black man or woman will see themselves represented in a museum. Usually, what we see in museums are white walls, with white people, who drink white wines. So this is really beneficial to our Diaspora in terms of seeing ourselves in a splendid, or more exalted light. But in the context of white fascism, what Kehinde's paintings are doing is sending the message that Black men and women should be with themselves exclusively; meaning our Diaspora in no way should endeavor to be with members of the opposite sex. So Kehinde's art is being used as yet another tool to mainstream homosexuality for Black people.

Now, in the past on this Blog, I've said that Black love is revolutionary. And that's not hyperbole. 'Cause at every instance, we see white fascists attempts to destroy it. And every Black man and woman reading this should understand how Black love is revolutionary, if for no other reason than we are the people with the most genetic power to breed our oppressors, i.e. white people, out of existence.

So am I saying that you should avoid a Kehinde Wiley exhibit if one comes to your town? No. But if you do decide to attend one of his functions, understand what's being reinforced psychologically with his art. Don't passively imbibe in the beauty of these paintings. It's incumbent on 'conscious' or deep-thinking Black men and women to decode and decipher every piece of entertainment that's created for us. Especially ones coming out of white institutions like national museums.

Cause we should know by now, that a white fascist's perfect world view, means every Black person has been gotten rid of. Remember, to white fascists, a Black person existing anywhere is a threat to them everywhere.

So let's be about the work of getting rid of our white fascist-induced self-hatred, so we can effectively fight the machinations working to destroy the Black nuclear family.

'Cause at the end of the day, all we got is us fam!

And like Sam Jackson said in the movie 'Do the Right Thing': “That's the triple truth, Ruth.”

Kem Wesir!

Halle Berry and the spectre of failed marriages...


Maria Halle Berry was born on August 14th, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio and her name was legally changed to Halle Berry at age five. Her white mother Judith Ann was a psychiatric nurse, and her father Jerome Jesse Berry was an African-american attendant working at the same hospital.

Halle's parents divorced when she was four years old, and from that point on, she and her sister Heidi were raised by their mother. Halle recounted the tumultuous years of her parent's marriage in the press, saying she continually witnessed her father being abusive to her mother. Also, Halle was quoted as saying in published reports that she'd been estranged from her father since her parents divorced. “I haven't heard from him,” Halle was quoted as saying, “...maybe he's not alive.”

In high school Halle was a cheerleader, honor student, editor of her school newspaper and prom queen. While studying in Cayahoga Community College, she entered several beauty contests. She had previously won the 'Miss Teen' beauty pageant in 1985 and she'd also won the 'Miss Ohio' pageant in 1986. She was also the first Black woman to enter the 'Miss World' beauty pageant in 1986 (maybe this matters to someone, so I thought I'd include this tid-bit of info.), and there she came in sixth place. 

Halle went to New York to pursue an acting career in 1989 and quickly ran out of money after she arrived. Behind this, she briefly slept in a homeless shelter. During this time, she did land a role in the short-lived TV series 'Living Dolls' which was shot in NYC. During the taping of Living Dolls, Halle lapsed into a coma and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. After she recovered, she continued working on the TV series before she moved to Los Angeles where she went on to have a recurring role in the television series, 'Knots Landing'.

Now, we all know how the rest of Halle's story goes in terms of her film career...her movie debut was in Spike Lee's 'Jungle Fever' in 1991, after that she was in the movie 'Strictly business'; she went on to play roles in other flicks like 'Catwoman', 'Swordfish', 'Monster's Ball', etc. But what I want to talk about here is Halle's relationship fiascoes.

Now recently, it was reported that Halle and Oliver Martinez had filed for a divorce. As a result, their lawyers are now hashing out how their assets will be divided. Mind you, this is Halle's third failed marriage and she has two kids by different fathers. With that said, here's two things I'm speculating about Halle's marriage to Oliver...

One: Being that Oliver Martinez is a fair-skinned latino, Halle probably thought their marriage had a better chance of going the distance than her marriages to Dave Justice and Eric Benet. She probably also thought this about her relationship with her 'rainbeau' Gabriel Aubry.

Two: Halle probably did everything she could to make her marriage to Oliver work, and she probably put everything she had into finalizing some kind of wedding plans between her and Gabriel.

Now, with that being said, I'm sure Halle did everything she could to save every one of her relationships hoping they'd result in life-long marriages. That is, she did everything except the one thing that would have truly saved them. And that certain thing is resolving the childhood traumas that are wrecking, and will continue to ruin her relationships with men.

And I'd also like to note two other points about Halle and her relationships...those being: one, even though I'm a Black Nationalist who prefers to see Black women with Black men, I really do feel more empathy than glee behind Halle's marriage troubles. And two, this type of thing doesn't just happen to Black female celebrities, just ask the singer Seal, he'll tell you all about the lowly nature of white women.

But in regards to Halle's marriage misadventures, I think she feels/felt that her beauty (at least by european standards) and celebrity, would shield her from these types of relationship problems. But no one can avoid the all important question that I keep bringing up on this Blog in reference to relationships, and that question is: Do you know who you're attracting and who you're attracted to?

I hope at some point Halle understands that all the childhood traumas she suffered are directly rooted to her marriage problems. Cause until Halle does the subconscious work to heal and resolve what she saw her mother go through, and the absence of her father, she'll never be in the stable relationship or marriage she's so desperately seeking.

And I hope Halle also understands the legacy of bad relationships that resulted in her father and mother divorcing. I'm willing to bet money that Halle's father and mother came from unstable and abusive households, so there's no way they could have created a stable one for her.

And the bottom line to all these relationship mishaps is this universal rule: if you come from an unstable and abusive household, you're gonna' attract and be attracted to people from unstable and abusive households.

AND THAT'S EVERYBODY! REGARDLESS OF GENDER OR ETHNICITY!

And even if Halle seeks out some form of traditional therapy, she's more than likely not gonna' have this problem resolved; because therapists rarely do any work at subconscious levels and they're usually more interested in putting people on prescription drugs than anything else.

But regardless of the method, I hope Halle is soon able to reconcile and recognize what's going on in her subconscious mind, so she can indeed find Mr. right one day and live happily ever after.
