I know I said that this would be the last entry for this subject on relationships. But I must go deeper into details about “The Great Divide” between black men and black women. It’s a subject that needs more than a four to five paragraph summary. I’m currently writing a script for a short film on the subject. Currently more black women are in colleges and universities, to higher paying careers. The black man has lost connection to the true source of his light on this earth. Consisting of 80% of the prison population. This is not by coincidence, but by design.
The black woman, also, in my opinion (the average black woman) seems to be more consumed with her looks and the amount of likes on her social media pages. This divide is obvious to the older men whom seem to be more into younger women and women of other cultures. One other concern is the lack of respect for the black man by the black women of his culture. The book by Steve Harvey, “Act Like a Woman, Think Like a Man”, intel a blatant disregard for the black man by his black counterpart. Not only that, but the follow up book “Straight Talk, No Chaser”. Which both books where best sellers. Not only by black women but white women as well.
A black woman can make more money than her mate and feel as if he is a liability. A white woman will make less money than him as well but still will support a black man. Not only in American but in Europe it is considered a status symbol to have a interracial family.
So where do we go from here as a culture? It used to be that black men worshipped the goddess or black woman. Today she is degrated by the social standard of her existence. Yes black women are beautiful in every proportion. But in my very own opinion as a black male. I feel some are only exterior oriented exhibits. Simply because you can’t even have a conversation with most of them. Try giving a black woman a compliment in today’s society and watch her reaction.
