**This program is rated "R" because it may not be suitable for black people of any age who are still in a typically vulnerable stage of self-acceptance/rejection in regards to their hue. It may be psychologically harmful for such people as it reviews scientific literature on the subject in the tiltle of this episode***
This episode will pick up the converstaion where it was left at the end of the 6-29-14 episode entitled "Black Men, Black Women, Bed-wenches & Nig@erstock."
In order to address this problematic behavior for the black collective today, we will discuss the seemingly hundreds (maybe even thousands) of years black men have been drawn to and, perhaps, even preferred white and other non-black women. Is this a preference hard-wired into biology? If it is, what's next? If it isn't, what's next?
Lets' get to the root of this thing >>> Pun intended.
