Often there is discussion and studies regarding black women being single, without a mate. Nobody ever tries to bring forth dialogue regarding ending the crisis. Now African American Women Matters have.
African American men are very liberal about dating outside his race. And is known to be a very staunch supporter of interracial love. I don't have anything against anyone that date outside their race.
I don't have a problem with black women that date outside of their race. I've heard that the black community isn't really supportive and somewhat ostracize black women that date out. It has been said that the black community is willing to embrace white women as an in-law but not a white male as an in-law. Is this true? If why?
Should the black community try to be more inclusive to black women involved in interracial relationships. Should African American women become vocal about ending the single black women crisis? So much 'ratchedness' would end if single black women could find a partner. Let's be civil and discuss this topic. If you think AAWM is wrong to bring this topic to the table explain why.
Black Americans have struggled to make a way out of no way for centuries. Faced with rampant racism and discrimination, industrious Black Americans do for self, launching their own businesses. The number of businesses owned by Black American women grew 322% since 1997, making black females the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. Women now own 30% of all businesses in the U.S., accounting for some 9.4 million firms. And Black American women control 14% of these companies, or an estimated 1.3 million businesses. The growth in women-owned firms may be due to the lack of fair pay, fair promotion, and family-friendly policies found in corporate America. Women of color are impacted more significantly by all of the negative factors that women face.
The highest concentrations of black woman-owned businesses are in Georgia, Maryland, and Illinois, but Black American women are launching companies in growing numbers across the country. Cassandra Bell-Gash launched a Medicaid waiver care in North Carolina in 2003 and grew the business into a million-dollar venture only to get sabotaged by bureaucratic mumbo-gumbo that delayed payments and interfered with client services forcing her to close in 2008. No untoward findings were made, but the interference caused Ms. Bell-Gash to close her business and regroup. Bell-Gash is unusual among entrepreneurs of any race or gender in that she employed more than just herself. Black American Women have an incredibly steep incline trying to do two things: one is just to be successful, and the other is to create wealth. Cassandra Bell-Gash relaunched her company, Life Provisions,Inc. (LPI) this Spring 2015 saying she was "delayed, but not detered".
WHY DO SOME BLACK MAN HATE ON BLACK WOMEN? I THIS IS A TREND THAT IS HAPPENING MORE AND MORE. I ALSO WANT TO TALK ABOUT CERTAIN COONS THAT JUST HATE THEIR OWN RACE.I WILL DISCUSS WHY TOMMY SOTOMAYOR FEELS I SHOULD BE HIS "YES" MAN AND HIS STUPIDITY ON THE INTERNET. WE WILL REVISIT THE SANDRA BLAND CASE AND DISCUSS THE FACT THAT SHE WAS MURDERED. WHILE WE ARE AT IT WE WILL GO OVER THE WILLIE LYNCH LETTER AND SEE THAT IT IS WORKING ON BLACKS IN THIS DAY AND AGE. THIS IS A LIVE SHOW SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL BE SAID!

Invest In Black Women Or Move On! With Ken Brisbon tonight on Taboo Talks. We are discussing how black men and black community would really benefit by learning the value of investing in black women in a time when black men take so much from us. These are the thoughts of Ken Brisbon, controversial blogger of TheGameisSoldNot Told.com
Join in on the convo and call in if you like.
If a man isn't a part of a solution for a black woman then hes a part of the problem. Do you agree?
