Stereotypes are bad.
The one thing you don’t want to do is to perpetuate the stereotype. There is a stereotype that black women can be bitter and vindictive.
It is one unfortunately that follows all black women even if it isn’t deserved, but when you read stories like this, it isn’t going to help that perception.
JocksandStilettoJill.com has the details.
Chris Bosh and his ex-girlfriend Allison Mathis are still battling each other in court over custody of two year old daughter, Trinity. Currently there is a temporary order in place where the two share custody.
With the Miami Heat in the NBA finals, Bosh of course would like his daughter there to share the experience with him. AT the moment, Trinity is in the custody of Allison and she refuses to allow her daughter to attend the games. Bosh has filed an emergency motion with the court.
TMZ, has also obtained an e-mail that was submitted with the court documents where late last month, Chris pleads with Allison to allow his daughter to watch him play and to see if they could reach a resolution without involving the courts. Check out excerpts from that e-mail.
“I am embarking on a new chapter of my life by making it into the finals for the first time in my professional career and it’s very important to me to have the people closest and dear to my heart to be able to share these moments with me.””If we can make this happen please respond asap and I will set up the arrangements for pick up/drop off without you even having to lift a finger.”
Mathis should be ashamed of herself, you never use a child as a pawn. Just because you are salty that Bosh has moved on and has a new lady, you never put your child in the middle of that.
If Mathis concentrated more on being a parent than getting on Basketball Wives, Bosh wouldn’t have to beg her to see his daughter.
Mathis is a pathetic individual and in a society where men are continuously dogged for not being father to their children, hopefully you see that there are some who are trying, but has to deal with women who make it difficult for them.
The good news for Bosh his schedule to see his daughter before Game 6 of the Finals, so she can see her dad play. I hope the Judge takes all this into consideration in their custody hearing.
You read this letter from Chris Bosh and tell me that Allison Mathis isn’t a vindictive bitter woman.
