Alpha Unit is a Black woman who is a supporter of the Black Women’s Empowerment Movement that can be seen in many Black women’s blogs on the Net. The movement is difficult to sum up. My understanding of this movement is that is it in opposition to many of the stereotypes about Blacks and Black females in particular.
They align themselves with the more assimilated population of Blacks and take offense to the notion that Blacks are rude, uncivilized, ghetto, loud, belligerent and unmannered. To put it another way, they are opposed to the Ghetto variety of Blacks.
I have noted many times on this blog that the Black community is splitting into a Ghetto Underclass style and an Assimilated or Middle Class style. The assimilated ones increasingly want little to do with the ghetto crowd. Ghetto is more of a style than an economic space – many wealthy rappers are still very ghetto, and many poor Blacks are assimilated. In particular, this group is opposed to the notion that Black females are seen as too aggressive.
Instead of just belligerently using psychological defenses to deny the issue, some Black women in this movement are investigating it with the notion towards creating what I would call a New Black Femininity.
This group of women has also been proposing that Black women open themselves up to interracial relationships, in particular with White men.
