Women and Depression with Benilde Little Black America | Black America


  1. I suffered with bipolar and depression mostly all my life. Its something that not to many people will understand. One minute I can be upbeat and the next just not interested in anything. My mood changes quickly out of the blue. The key is knowing your triggers and to avoid people or reading anything that will trigger you to get depressed. So many black women and men have alot on their plates and then have to go to work and put a smile on and pretend that they are okay. We are suffering in silence. I decided that I had enough and sought treatment for what I was going thru. I always felt that black women were judged and always under scrutiny for just about any and every little thing. And then you have women from your own race that will talk bad about you also. I stopped worrying myself about things like that because with people with depression and bipolar it will only trigger an episode of depression and will have your mind racing.

  2. Thank you posting this video. Way too many Black women suffer in silence with depression. Our community needs to become better educated and more compassionate about mental illness. For those of us who live with depression, it can be so isolating. That has to stop.

  3. My response to a totally inconceivably moronic radical feminist on YouTube!

    Ms Holland, what you and innumerable other black females are trying to make themselves believe is in fact just plain stupid and is completely not based on even remote reality or facts.

    I am a more than 50 year old black man who grew up right at the nucleus of the totally inconceivable insanity that black women so loudly and proudly proclaim as The Completely Ass-backward And Half-sideways Thinking So-called Strong, Totally Independent Black Woman.

    To correct you numbskull's completely astoundingly out of touch with reality, totally incorrect view of how, as you are completely unaware, The General North American Culture Of Gender Separatism In Fact Started…

    First, The Strong Black Woman, who existed during slavery and came to be referred to as The Strong Black Woman because these in fact strong black women of old were forced to work extremely long hours, often barefoot in all conceivable extremes of weather and they were forced to take care of at least two entire families which consisted of no less than 8 – 15 people each and when these women were full term pregnant they still had to work in the field, deliver their babies in the field and immediately continue working or be severely beaten, who completely ceased to exist in the 1960s, is /are a completely different animal from The So-called Strong, Totally Independent Black Women that were born in the early 1950s and completely turned their back on God and their grandparents, emerged on the streets of North America's urban metropolis' in the 1960s, completely filled the slums and projects of those metropolis', signed up for the government assistance programs in those metropolis' as many times as they possibly could for generations, started to claim that they were strong, totally independent black women who never had and never ever would  need a man for anything under any circumstances no matter what eventuality presents itself and further claimed that men in general were slowing them down and holding them back and that they could raise children better all by themselves and that they were tired of pussy hungry ass niggers and they further claimed that these said pussy hungry ass niggers needed to get themselves a white woman because white women were weak and needed a man where strong, totally independent black women were strong and didn't need a man for anything.

    Second, common sense, which no woman, not to mention  any black woman, has ever possessed in the entire history of humanity… So-called Pussy Hungry Ass Niggers Absolutely Did Not And Never Have Even Remotely Thought About Putting A Barrier Between Ourselves And The Pussy, Because Remember, We're Pussy Hungry And Being Pussy Hungry Our Inclination Is Towards Having Clear Access To As Much Pussy As Is Humanly Possible!

    Third, as I just pointed out, Pussy Hungry Ass Niggers Absolutely Did Not Declare Open Season On The White Women That You Numbskulls Never Get Through Complaining About, Totally Inconceivably Hideous Strong, Totally Independent Black Women In Fact Did This And I Know That Strong, Totally  Independent Black Women Declared Open Season On White Women Because I Was There When They Did It In Totally Relentlessly Crime Ridden Shitholes, Like Chicago, And I Witnessed Them Do It First Hand At Point Blank Range For Years On End After 1975!

    Fourth, Supposedly Amazingly Progressive, Highly Industrious And Infinitely Well Intentioned Strong, Totally Independent Black Women did not get rid of black men and claim that they didn't need black men in the 1970s, they were far too stupid to even remotely imagine something as practical as trying to isolate themselves from one single group of men, these totally inconceivable idiots were absolute and complete low-lives to everyone around them and they claimed that they never had and never ever would need a man of any kind under any circumstances no matter what eventuality presented itself and they willfully completely isolated themselves.

    Fifth, since women in general, and black women in particular, absolutely cannot think or draw even remotely logical conclusions even if a half of a Century worth of totally irrefutable evidence is placed right in front of them, women in general, and black women in particular, absolutely cannot even remotely figure out that since women in general, and black women in particular, have become totally obsessed with their completely ridiculous pipe dreams of being radical feminist strong, totally independent black super women in the mid 1960s the divorce rate, general crime rate, drug addiction rate, murder rate, rape statistics, human trafficking rates, rates of suicide and suicidal depression, rates of crimes against the elderly and clergy and the entire concept of having respect for other people have gone right through the ceiling and absolutely and completely out of this stratosphere and if women in general and strong, totally independent black women in particular have spent nearly five decades claiming that they're strong, totally independent, and are never ever going to need a man for anything under any circumstances no matter what eventuality presents itself then these totally unparalleled numbskulls in fact are responsible for the totally self-imposed regression of the black community, not men who were not allowed to have a hand in things that black women have spent more than a Century claiming that they can do exponentially better all by themselves!

    Sixth, since you very amusingly mentioned the need for me (A Grand Inquisitor Level Theologian Lineage Master Pimp) to research things more deeply so that I don't unwittingly misplace blame on totally undeserving individuals it would be totally uncharacteristically super awesome if you would take your own advice and do some research into the fact that the white people that you worship, have long concluded are inherently better for us (black men) than you are in fact not    disempowering you, holding you down, holding you back or any other totally stupid false idea that lurks in that junkyard that the black female calls their mind… White people are in fact merely totally expendable pawns of Indians from India, not North America, whom are experiencing many of the same things that you are and they are not nearly as high on the food chain as totally mindless ghetto trash think that they are.
