LOL…

There are plenty of beautiful, strong and loving black men of the African diaspora ready to wife you in this world.  Get out more, travel more.   But, one thing I tip my hat off to Black men is honesty.  Black men usually do not settle, they won’t just marry anybody.  If Black men are not ready to settle down and still want to play the field, they won’t marry.  If this is not the woman they want to spend the rest of their life with, they won’t wife her.  On the other hand, White men marry because it is what’s expected and then cheat.  Marriage to white men are laden with affairs and they are prostitute mongers…
 
For the record, there is nothing wrong with marrying black and having black babies.  This blog further perpetuates the destruction of the black family and black people.  Every other culture puts their women and men on a pedestal, except for us.  This blog is ran and supported by women with a trove inferiority complexes. It is a disgrace and utter embarrassment to black people.  With mindsets like this, Blacks are destined to remain the permanent underclass.
