“We on sites like this one want better than misery. We are not dumb, we have eyes and we know what we have been through and what so many of our fellow black women are going through.

What is happening is a fundamental economic shift that is resulting in a profound social change between the sexes. As usual this shift started happening within the black community first and has now filtered out to the general population.

Skills that women and specifically black women are attaining at greater rates than their male cohorts.
