Black female author dating
This should be a surprise to um…nobody, because we are well aware of the epidemic out-of-wedlock rate in the black community.
But what I find funny (not in a ha-ha sort of way but in a this-ish-ain’t-right sort of way) is that as usual, the focus and bad news about black women leans towards the idea that the cradle of destruction for the black community lies at our whoring feet, whorish whores that we are. After the No Wedding No Womb epic clustercuss, I realized a sobering truth: Black men haven’t been marrying black women for so long that black women no longer expect to be married (or at least in a long-term committed relationship) before having children.
Yet when there’s news about how one in three black men are unfairly abused in prison it’s all weeping and bleeding hearts. What’s more, the mere thought of having to get a guy to marry you before he plants his seed in your womb might often throw them into a blind rage. These days, being an intact, functioning family in the hood will get your kids beat up at school every day.
Idiots try to use this bit of information about my past as some club to beat me down with, but I’ve admitted this fact freely, and the stats above show that I’m not alone.
The study concludes that more than 59 percent of black women who have more than one child also have multiple babies’ daddies.

Stenberg questions what she calls “pop-culture feminism” as too easy.
“Maybe we all are feminists, but it gives white women especially the idea that if feminism looks accessible in media, then it’s all good and we’re all in the right.” The movement’s godmother, Gloria Steinem, stresses the incisiveness of Stenberg’s point of view: “Amandla is brave and effective in pointing out the presence of racism within white culture,” she says, “and also in naming the invisibility of black women.”Having stoked a dialogue, however, Stenberg is ready to move on, or rather to channel her activism into her acting. In Asante’s , she plays a young, mixed-race German woman who falls in love with a member of the Hitler Youth (hence the punitive shaved head).
