Whenever people in Melanoid society chooses to empower themselves, the dominant society will usually co-opt certain sectors within Black society to try and discredit or sabotage progress.
We have seen modern examples of this with some of these questionable online publications that are supposed to cater to “Black interests”.
It appears that the white supremacist media has designated a Negro Shaming Committee. Many is this “committee” appear to be associated with Ebony.com. And another online “publication” that appears to be part of this committee is Madame Noire- who publishes ground breaking articles like “8 Reasons To Date A White Man’ and “Love Money & The Swirl! 11 Inter-racial Power Couples”- tries to fancy itself as a “lifestyle” publication, but it’s nothing more than another run-of-the-mill gossip site.
Since the release of the critically acclaimed Hidden Colors documentary series that focuses on Black empowerment, so-called writers from Madame Noire has written several articles about the film and the participants in the film, that were filled with misinformation, gossip,and flat out lies.
A couple of the main culprits at Madame Noire are writers who many suspect of pretending to be Black “feminists”. One in particular is a person named Charing Ball-who many people accuse of engaging in yellow journalism and being a lazy writer, has written several slanderous stories about well respected activists and educators like Tariq Nasheed and Umar Johnson.
And recently another suspected “pretend Black feminist” and amateur writer Sierra Boone, penned an article basically lying about the content in the Hidden Colors films.
So the question we must ask is, are these people being used by the dominant society to discredit grassroots progress within Black society?
