Misadventures of Aja Mae Thrilla in Manila
I want to make love to you.
Lovemaking is much more than fucking
It is a meal, a play that originates out of the heart.
It is not a test.
But an articulation of affection, respect and desire.
Noir Poire

no lies detected tho. remember when i said this was the case, someone tried to try me and say it was heart disease. but they too blinded to do the right looking to find the statistics that prove it true. i mean, we got a lot of rightful outrage over white ppl killing Black boys but not for Black men killing Black women and girls.

where are the statistics that prove this? cause i googled it and all i found were message boards and a conservative site that back this up which is not factual.

I can think of four BW in my family rn off the top of my head whose SO caused their deaths…

BY THE NUMBERS
The Violence Policy Center in Washington, D.C., found these facts in its 2012 report of 2010 domestic violence statistics for black women:
94 percent of black womenkilled by men in single victim/single offender incidents knew their killers.
Nearly 15 times as many black women were murdered by a man they knew than were killed by a stranger.
64 percent of black victimswho knew their offenders were wives, ex-wives or girlfriends of the offenders.
The number of black women shot and killed by their husband or intimate partner was nearly five times as high as the total number murdered by strangers using all weapons combined.
That is from the article ^^
In 1999, homicide was the third leading cause of injury-related death for all women (pregnant or not pregnant) of reproductive age, 15 to 44 years of age, after deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents and suicide, and it was the second leading cause of injury-related death among women aged 15 to 24 years and among Black women of reproductive age.1 Moracco and Runyan reported the highest homicide rate occurring among women under the age of 35 and found that the homicide rate for Black women (15.8 per 100 000) was more than 3 times higher than that for White women (4.3 per 100 000).2
^^ this is from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1449204/ and is related to 1999 but also pregnant Black women especially.

here is another source about IPV and homicide rates. rates have declined, as the article onelittlegee linked to also stated but more so for Black men than Black women and the rates have changed to an increase in Black women being killed more by Black men rather than vice versa. 
also another report by the department of health pennsylvania also states homicide is the top killer for both Black men and Black women ages 15-24. Black men are generally killing other Black men. Black men are also killing Black women. this isn’t saying Black men are more prone to violence, simply that the violence we have experienced as a race has led to some fucked up misogyny that hurts Black women in ways that lead to death at a Black man’s hands, at a young ass age. 
^^ i found this source, which is a free downloadable PDF, 9 sources down out of 10 in a google search of black women top killer homicide ages 15 to 35, the site starts as portal.gov something or other.


Wow. Just wow.

when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”

When it occured to us that “said” implies a direct quote, while “was like” clarifies that you mean to communicate the person’s tone and general point without quoting them word for word.

THANK YOU
