Why Being A Professional Woman Doesn't Make You A Catch.
The video and article showing E. Curtissa Cofield, a black female judge in Hartford, Connecticut, debasing a black male police officer who was booking her for DWI clearly shows that professional status does not always mean professional character. Cofield, on video, referred to Sgt. Dwight Washington as “Negro trooper” and repeatedly as “head nigger in charge” during questioning. He inquired as to whether she was ill, and she stated that her illness was “Negro-itis” and that she needed “anti-Negro” medication. The debasing continued.
This is important to note because the Something Screwed Crew repeatedly bases its notion of superior black female quality almost solely on a perception of professional attainment. Now lets disregard how they exaggerate the level of attainment while understating black male achievement. Does professional status by itself make a woman a catch for marriage? Of course not, yet the SSC can't seem to understand this, even after the Cynthia McKinny incident. They seem to try to proclaim what men should desire based on a female perspective. Women tend to desire men of high financial attainment. Men value a female's financial attainment MUCH less. What women desire from a man financially is what men desire from a woman physically. Men want women they view as good looking and sweet. These things tend to take president over financial attainment.
Cofield, despite being a judge, had no problem using the n-word to describe a black man who was only doing his job. It's ironic in modern times whereas black female activists rally against men referring to black women as "bitches" and "hoes", yet so many black women still feel quite comfortable calling black men "niggers/niggas". The double standards are clear. The thing about calling black men "niggas" is that it is racially and gender specific (nigga tends to have a masculine connotation when blacks use it). On the other hand, "bitch" and "ho" tend to be gender specific only. A black man who uses those words will use them when referring to women of any race. "Nigga" is directly pointing to a black man.
