According to the video below 42% of Black women have never been married. I’m not one of those so maybe my evaluation may not be as credible as some, but I am single (divorced) and I do have standards concerning to men I consider sharing space. Being from Atlanta, I’ve seen first hand how times have changed and I know I’m not the only one who’s noticed the increasing ratio of Gay to Straight men. But even considering all of those factors, I still think that Black woman are getting a bad rap.
Are we too picky? Are the statistics accurate? Is this a racial problem? So many questions. Video below:
What pisses me off most about this video is that we, as Black woman are often called “picky” when we excel in life and choose not to settle, while White women are merely “single” and looking.
“Even if every Black male married a black woman today. One in 12 still wouldn’t make it down the aisle.“
A successful Black woman who’s unmarried is looked upon as some sort of anomaly, as if we’re wasting our talents being successful instead of being wives and mothers. It’s sad how the same doesn’t apply to White women.
Steve Harvey even notes in the video that Black woman should alter their requirements quite a bit, stating, “If you make $150,000 does he HAVE to make $150,000 or more?”
My answer: Why not?
