Why Do Women Hate On Each Other

Climbing the entrepreneurial ladder has had it thrills for me, yet the one thing that I notice as the common deliminator that most wish would change is the sister-hood among African American WOMEN! After all, Black women’s relationships with one another have often been fraught with tension. Truth is, we are sometimes our own worst enemy. A corporate executive shared she had noticed that in the workplace Black women are sometimes the ones derailing other sisters. Certainly we’ve been guilty of tearing each other down in our personal relationships as well, even fighting over a sorry man who tried to play us against each other. But with all the challenges facing us, it’s more important than ever that we as Black women make a conscious decision to support, love and affirm one another at work, in our communities, in our churches and in our organizations. It’s time for us to wake up to the fact that our problem isn’t between us; it’s with all the forces that teach us to undermine one another instead of pulling together to strengthen us all. Whatever happened to lifting each other as we climb? Ladies we HAVE TO DO BETTER!!! I’m not suggesting that we all like each other and be phony, but that we all try to respect each other. You HAVE NO IDEA what the next woman is going through, you don’t know what past or current hurt and pains have shaped her into who she is today. If we would spend 1/3 of the time spent tearing each other down to build someone up, encourage someone, and show love, we could truly make a difference. PLEASE don’t be the straw that breaks another woman’s back. There is a woman out there that needs your smile, your hug, your support, [and] prayer. Now I’m not saying every sistah has a knife…but some of you do….and you know who you are. Why is it that a woman can’t get her glamour on without you having a problem? Why can’t I get a blonde weave without you having something to say? If I’m working myself to death in the office trying to climb the corporate ladder…why am I suddenly a sellout? If I leave the room for a minute why can’t I trust you around my man? Smiling in my face, but gossiping all my personal business behind my back? You now have permission to consider yourself triflin’!
