The Hard Truth: Bitter Black Women Do Exist

- By Bossip Staff

“Les, it’s 2010 you can’t be writing about bitter black women. Combining those words alone will get people enraged.”

This was the reaction of one of my girlfriends when I explained what I was planning to write about next. A sharp woman and protective friend, her tone was a cautionary one. A warning of the angry responses that were sure to come if I penned the piece I had in my head. And while I considered heeding her warning, I decided to put my big girl helmet on and speak on what’s been on my mind.

The bitter sister is not the Loch Ness monster. She exists and I’ve met her, on at least one occasion.

      bitter women come in all colors and races….but let’s be honest, bitter Black women are the Best.

      waiting to exhale wouldnt be quarter as successful if it was about a bunch of hateful becky’s or chin’s.

  • Chile please

    Bitter white, Latina, Asian, indian, etc women exist all so…

    • Stop With The SteroTypes Already!!!

      How about just talking about bitter women in general!!! I’m black and work with nothing but white women and asian women and let me tell you they are some bitter beeacthes!!! The hate on me for being happy go lucky(O_o). So no stop with the angry bitter black women crap it just doesn’t fly anymore. You can’t keep up down we will stand tall no matter what…lol

    • Stop With The SteroTypes Already!!!

      Oh and I work at the bank and the customers themselves tell what’s really good. When it’s a black female she is just as kind but when it’s the other ones they have their nose so far up their aazzzes until it isn’t any funny. They feel like the world owes them something or like they are better than you. While all along the black female treats you like a human being and not some shiiit on the floor. Done ranting now…lol

    • Stop With The SteroTypes Already!!!

      Last comment…yes I have came across bitter black women but when I got to know them I knew why they were they way they were. Most of the time it’s was their life situation that took a toll on them either it be financial, relationships etc. However, other races had/have it all good relationship, money, kids all their kids in college and them beetches was/are still angry as hell!!! I’m just tired of “other” folks talking about the black woman. If you really look at it, I’m starting to believe it’s jealousy. We have what “others” desire such as skin color…no tanning needed…lol any way forgrt those stupid people.

    • ok...

      If you read the article she mentions that women that are bitter come in all races… reading is fundamental

  • Beatrix Kiddo

    Yes, bitter black women exist. But there are also tons of us who aren’t. Bitter women and/or people exist in every race. I definitely think it’s something to be talked about but every black female shouldn’t be lumped into that category.

    You should NEVER give another human being the power to make your life visible. Yes there are bitter black women out there but like I said bitter people of all races exist.

    • G.M.

  • Beatrix Kiddo

    Ha ha, thats funny…I was thinkin the same thing!

  • Nicki

    to my black sista’s don’t fret.when black men are truly honest with themselves,they will acknowledge the role they had in the demise of black love.Angry,bitter,etc are words like golddigger that men created to turn the focus from them onto us.Dont believe the hype.there are plenty of happy black women in the world,its just that drama and bs is what grabs ignorant peoples attention.

    • StuckInDaMatrix

      Thank you for your comment! it’s going to take a while but, both black men and women must admit the roles WE all played in this mess! It has nothing to do with whites or other races but ourselves, we allowed this to happen and it’s up to us to fix it.

    • G.M.

      Ed Lover Voice: C’MON SON!!! GTFOH WIT THAT BULLSH1T…talkin bout both blk men and women need to admit to sh1t…us men already been and always have and will tell u what we are about whether its good or bad…its women who are slow as fucc to admit there evil/hoe-ish ways of gettin married just to divorce for alimony or gettin pregnant for a child support check hence the title gold-digger, i be seein y’all praisin jazmine sullivan homicidal crazy b1tch songs talkin bout how u relate to bussin windows and strappin bombs to n199az…dont be thinkin we dont see that sh1t

    • mocaleenie

      Thank you, for that comment!

  • don't ask

    Why? Because none of them wants you they have to be bitter? You going to hell anyway. See yah.

  • JaZzIe91

    smh there’s bitter women in every race. SMH

  • Sha

    If you seek one you’ll find one…

  • Soul Touch

    Breaking news – there are bitter people regardless of race.

    Whoopty Doo.

  • Seriously

    This is ridiculous, I’ve seen plenty of bitter white, Hispanic and other races of women. Why target only black women? I know… Because most white women (I love my Caucasian family :))put on this front like all is well and they have no problems…

    • You are correct

      This is a HUMAN condition and can be forund in both genders and all races. It’s really about having a broken spirit and that can happen to anyone.

  • We"Blacks"AreTheREALHebrewIsraelites

    I didn’t know Black women had the monopoly on bitterness. Ask the old white Ms. Havisham wannabe neighbor who lives right next to me. Shoooo.

    And this news, huh?????????

    It’s a KNOWN fact that ALL BLACK WOMEN ARE BITTER… Diary of an angry black woman – that’s why I stay humping LATINAS..

    • Luke Cage (Power Man)

      yeah, but how much do you have to pay them you lame trick.

  • kaa

    It’s not exclusive, anyone can be bitter. That’s as bad as the angry black man.

  • Nihala

    To the men (negatively) commenting on here, I’m interested in seeing your responses when MadameNoire pens a piece on the “angry black man” who feels disenfranchised by the “man.” It’s coming in a couple of days.

    And Betty, I completely agree with you. If anyone has a right, it’s definitely the black woman, but as you and many others have said, it’s not exclusive to black women.

  • We"Blacks"AreTheREALHebrewIsraelites

    *clap clap clap*

  • HottestGirl

    why im the hottest girl

  • nymph

    I gotta ride for the blk woman.nothin else compares to it.blk women are the most admired and spitefuly envied on earth.don’t believe the less desired of all females b.s.if they can make you believe it then they can convince themselves that they are what they say they are.that’s why prefer natural black women .no weaves bleaching none of that.don’t run from what you are run to it.
