Queen Narrative and the Faustian Bargain
Now to be sure, there are black men who feel some kind of way about Serena. I posit that it is because they swallowed the queen narrative fantasy (I mean it is just too comical to even address) and agreed to a Faustian bargain to forgo their options/choices and swear off all other women. Then as good flying monkeys they criticized other black men along the way. They didn’t know that those women only wanted first right of refusal, wanted a pool of men to wait in the shadows, just in case. Many just bought into some Hotep, Pan-African political philosophy and did it for the community. They haven’t noticed that everything under the auspices of, “for the community”, is usually for Black American women. And basically that comes down to reproductive rights, mating options and having black men along as queen b soldiers or to absorb blame for all the problems.
