Oh…this post is gonna make some GAT-DL folks mad. But since when did that EVER stop us?
My dearest Kola Boof tagged me in one of the many DeBlasio victory posts, and I read a comment from one of her friends that I just had to cut and paste so we can put up for discussion. It pretty much encapsulates everything we’ve been talking about here since 2010:
Overburdened single mothers who raise their daughters and spoil their sons, absent fathers and a misogynist, color struck peer group all contributed to this perfect storm. Black men who put their own desires above the needs of women, children, and community. No wonder a growing number of black women are pondering what was once unthinkable. “Are white men the new black?”
Now THAT’S a question. Let’s discuss.
