PantherWoman, I do think a man like Thierry is worth saving, he is wasted on a white woman, she is not worthy of him, she cannot fully appreciate him, like an African woman could. I once saw a picture of him wearing a t-shirt with the map of Africa on it, so maybe he is not that disconnected from his roots, but I doubt he would ever become as conscious as Malcolm.
Men like Thierry are not actually physically attracted to white women, they find African women more attractive, they only marry white women because they have been brainwashed into thinking that a only a white woman is good enough when you become successful. I think she probably threw herself at him (you know how these white women behave when they meet a celebrity) and before he knew it, he was married to her.
African women were made for African men, anything other than this combination is going against nature.
Thierry's rightful African soulmate is somewhere out there, hope he doesn't keep her waiting too long!
Ok, I admit to previously having a thang for Monsieur Henry. But when I saw that advert with him profiling with his bluefoot, he suddenly looked ugly as hell but not before a brief period of blind hope that he would come home. Then i had to really be honest with myself. The only reason I felt he might 'come home'/ be worth saving was because he is attractive. So then I had to confront the fact that I do believe we place too much value on aesthetics. I'm not going to start preaching or anything, because I still inhibit this mode of thinking but the fact that we as Africans perceive people differently based on how 'attractive' they are to us physically is surely wrong?? Beswoting certain characterisitics on them because of their appearance can't be right, can it? I mean, are we saying that Thierry is worth saving but someone who looked like a mangy dogs batty should be cast onto the rubbish heap because of something out of his control?
Sorry, just in one of those moods today.
And you know what i'd say to them: " Go kiss my beautiful shiney black behind!"
who gives a shit what european women think they are so full of sh*t anyway its media and society that tells them they're all that the actual truth is they're far from it, and deep down they know this......maybe we should pity they're insecurities.
Please don't get me started on european women.
