I should clarify that in my region of SUDAN, the North...the overwhelming majority of men only have one wife (as your Dinka father and my Arab father only had one wife).
But you are right. In Southern Sudan (the Cushite region), there are a number of men who have 10 to 22 wives----and the men are usually 40 to 70 and half their wives are 13 and 14. The wives are treated abominally.
I have never heard an AFRICAN woman from the continent talk about how "wonderful, nourishing and spiritual" and....."truly African"...it was to be in a harem (as ISIS tries to describe it). And frankly, once a woman passes 30--they are often abandoned and never touched or spoken to again, but ARE NOT given their freedom to leave. It's a horrible, horrible life.
It's a tragedy that the Black Woman (world wide) places so little VALUE on herself--mainly because the sons of her womb have not placed any value on her. These women, as a result, will allow grown boyfriends to fuck their 12 and 13 yr. old daughters (did you see "Woman Thou Art Loosed"?) and these women will preach that Polygamy is a virtuous, rewarding lifestyle and will groom their daughters to be exploited,used up and spit out.
The men of course get to be educated, live life freely and basically urinate on as many women as they wish to---both their multiple wives and the ones they cheat with in the street.
I support any woman who chooses Polygamy, and I have seen AMERICAN black women engaged in it with more freedom (ie. they work a job outside the home)---but being an African, I still realize that it's a form of slavery and comes directly from the original African slave trade--back when ALL THE SLAVES...were black women.
More and more, by listening to Black American women...I am realizing that Black Women world wide are programmed to SETTLE and do not place any value on themselves.
This is why I see the WHITE WOMAN as "stronger" than the black woman....and this is why I have argued that the Black Woman, while called "strong"----is really ENDURANCE-oriented, trained in a cycle to be a "servant" in all ways, devoting her life to her nation's religion (which she hides behind), believing herself ugly and allowing black men to treat her any way they want---because she believes she can't do any better.
Almost NEVER will you hear black women get together and say---"let's give birth to a new son". I've even had them argue me down that it can't be done.
They are quick to insist: "Well this is just how it is and it's ALWAYS been this way."
So much of the black woman's suffering is because she DEMANDS AND EXPECTS IT.....because she's USED TO IT.
Notice that women of other races do not see themselves as "mules", do not believe they are ugly and the men do not treat them as such.
We need to have a revolution just for Black Women. That is what I see coming.
