Lombardi's_kid_brother Posted January 7, 2010 Author Share Posted January 7, 2010 Your answer is puzzeling to me. Are you saying that educated black women are all racists? Are you saying that educated black women would vote more along racists beliefs then they would put the advancement of the black in America? Jesus Christ on a cracker. Look...race is a complicated goddamn subject. Not every person who has complex views on race is a goddamn racist. And to the same effect, having a less than pure view of race that is not 100 percent race neutral does not make you a racist. In my last job, I worked with a ton of college-educated black women. And they loved me. (My wife and I joke that 35 to 55 year old black women are my best demographic. I should really be a principal of an elementary school in Anacostia, but that's another subject for another day). From what I learned (and the numbers bear this out). Black women who get college degrees outnumber black men who get college degrees about 2:1. (Seriously, look it up. It's a staggering number). This basically means that black women in the middle class or professional class or whatever you want to call it do not have a ton of selection of black men with the same education and/or employment status. (And, let's be honest. Lawyers marry lawyers. Teachers marry teachers. Etc. Etc.) So, there is basically a large pool of black woman in that class and a small pool of black men. Dating can become somewhat tricky. When black men in that class date white women, it becomes complicated. It's not exactly a race thing. It's more of a territorial thing infused with race. I had many lunches from 2005 to 2007 that sounded like scenes out of "Jungle Fever." My strategy was usually to turn the conversation to Teddy Pendergrass when things got too heated.
