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. We are moving from an industrial economy and all of those great paying but physically demanding male dominated manufacturing jobs. Jobs that supported families black and white and built communities towards a knowledge based economy which requires a different set of skills. Skills that women and specifically black women are attaining at greater rates than their male cohorts.
