This Sunday night's show was prompted by an article entitled, "Black Men, Walk Away From Black Women - 12 Good Reasons Why!" The article written September 23, 2016 was taken from it's author's book entitled; "Negro Wars" by Babatunde Umanah.
This articles states 12 reasons why Black Women are no longer a viable dating and/or marriage option for Black Men! The 12 reasons stated by this article are as follows: 1. Violent, 2. Foul Attitudes, 3. Irresponsible and Disrespectful, 4. Weaves, Tatoos, and Fake Everything Else, 5. Hatred for Black Children, 6. Don't Value Good Black Men, 7. Unhygenic, STD's and Poor Health, 8. Preloaded w/Children, 9. Argumentative, 10. Materialistic, 11. Worship Feminism, 12. Worship White Men
Are these allegations true; or are these allegations a bunch of worthless empty propaganda and rhetoric? What was the author's intent? Did he write this article to use as an excuse to date white women? One thing that we doknow for sure, there is definitely tension between Black Male and Female relationships.
