Christian Keyes Claps Back at White Woman After She Slams His Praise of Black Women

A seemingly insecure white woman called out actor Christian Keyes after he praised Black women in a post on social media.

The “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” star quickly fired BACK, putting Barking Betty in her place after she noted her disapproval of him saying: “Black women are definitely superheroes,” he captioned an Instagram post, to which she replied, “*all women*.”

“I said what I said… It’s a shame that we can’t even celebrate black women without ‘others’ popping up talking about ‘what about us’… just because somebody says something positive about black women, it doesn’t mean that they don’t think the same about other women,” Keyes replied.

“It just means that here in this moment right now, I would like to say something positive and amazing about black women. If that offends you, then you are part of the problem. God bless,” he added.

He posted a photo of the exchange on his IG page with a caption explaining why he responded to the woman

Just because you celebrate or compliment one particular ethnicity, doesn’t mean that other ethnicities aren’t great… It just means that RIGHT NOW, In this moment, I’d like to acknowledge the greatness of black women… It doesn’t mean your entitlement, insecurity, or inner bigotry should flareup… This statement shouldn’t offend anyone else and if it does, then YOU are the problem, NOT my statement… #ISaidWhatISaid Black women are definitely superheroes. (Feel free to disagree ON YOUR PAGE),” he wrote.

It has become common on social media for a particular type of white woman to overreact in effort to shut down praise of Black women.

As noted by blavity.com, this disturbing trend is known as “All Lives Mattering,” and is done by white women when Black people, particularly women, are complimented for their beauty or accomplishments. The most recent example came last month when white women attacked Bea Dixon, owner of the feminine care company The Honey Pot, for a Target commercial in which she notes her hope that her success will make it easier for the next generation of Black female entrepreneurs.
