There is a specific betrayal in a Black man failing a Black woman. Taking and not replacing. Consuming and not caring for. Feeding on and not filling up. Scavenging the remains she has made a miracle of. Pulling a chair up to the Black woman buffet. Benefitting from her oppression. There is a specific betrayal in a Black man exploiting a Black woman’s emotional labor, her body, her trust, her love, her being. There is a specific betrayal in a Black man’s betrayal. A specificity only Black women know.
