The ex man threatened a slightly older tattooed man over the phone and on Facebook. He should have been dumped, not allowed access to Black Girl’s friends list , but didn’t want one of his toys to get away. Why did the Black Girl want dates? Or affection? Loyalty? He had none of the resources for such things and felt it too much of a burden. After all, he knew some parts of a language and lied about passing as another race to seem even more attractive. After all, he had no similarities with Black Girl and none of the same morals and values.
Somehow, the tattooed man was lied to and took the lies from the Ex Man and decided to betray the Black Girl after meeting her. Maybe the tattooed man wanted to impress the younger guy or manipulated by him even after being threatened.
Maybe the two men were actually gay and misogynistic and liked to belittle black women while still using them to get their needs met. Maybe they enjoyed being emotionally unavailable and not romantic. Maybe they enjoyed pretending to not know English when questions about their behavior came up. Maybe they enjoyed being sneaky.
But, despite trying to seem cool and independent, smart etc, the Tattooed man was someone else’s pawn in a game. Maybe it gave him purpose despite being used like a puppet for someone he didn’t respect.
