Last week I posted one of what I call my PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS which stated


This is a reminder to all Black women who find themselves on that "I'mma give a nigga a chance to be fair" thang... you ain't the EEOC!

That is all.

Black women's obsession with "giving a brotha a chance" at the expense of themselves and their children? Why are there epidemic numbers of black women that don't expect "anything" financial, material or otherwise from a man -- and as a rule they GET nothing. He sits around her house, eating up all her food and utilizing her car and other resources while she continues to struggle financially. Having his babies yet seeing no real support coming from him is the norm.

Why are black women so willing to sacrifice themselves and opportunities for advancement behind a man? Who or what is it that motivates black women to behave in such self-defeating ways towards black men? And why do black men feel they are OWED this type of loyalty and support?
