SORT BY Relevancy
Black women represent 30 percent of all females incarcerated under state or federal jurisdiction. In 2011, black women were more than three times as likely as white women to be incarcerated in prison or jail.
During the last 20 years, there has been a profound change in the manner in which women are
treated within the criminal justice system. This has been a result of more expansive law enforcement
efforts, stiffer drug sentencing laws, and post-conviction barriers to reentry that uniquely affect
women. In response, the consideration of a gender-specific approach to studying criminal justice
policy has moved from a mere footnote to a full-fledged reform movement.

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.
Tonight on "Living Off The Grid Radio" Mr. Charles Tyler and guess shall be asking the question:
"Do African American Women Suffer From Stockholm Syndrome ?"
The demographic is not limited to black women, but to women across the board.
Stockholm Syndrome (as in relationship to our show tonight) is when an abused woman feels and expresses positive feelings towards the person who abuses them..........even to the point of defending them.
The fact that (some NOT ALL) black women "could" have Stockholm Syndrome explain why many women do not like "nice guys" ?

In the outrage over the lack of justice for Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Eric Garner and the several others who died at the hands of law enforcement, there was an erasure of the black women, girls and queer folks who had met the same fate within some of the protests. Yet the Silence of Black women being brutalized is disturbing....This Episode we'll take a look at the How black women became an after thought in the movement they created.
