like I state in my article it's mostly a result of internalized misogynoir (misogynoir=misogyny against black women). Many of them believe that black women are loud, angry, aggressive, masculine and all other stereotypes that exist regarding black women. Nevermind the fact that there are loud, angry, aggressive, masculine women of every color. So yes, I would say that it's a cultural/social issue.

“Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender.” I come with truth because I care more about the world than I should.
