The most idiotic excuse is there aren't enough qualified black men. That is a subjective statement without any objective evidence. A black woman with 6 children by 6 different men can call a black man with a college degree, successful, no drugs and no bad habits unqualified because, the black man will not babysit her children, pay her bills, cater to her every demand or be her personal door mat.

Black women are fastidious but, they would disagree and claim they have high standards. What's the difference, nothing but, euphemism. In other words tell a black woman up, she'll say above. Say high, she'll say inflated. Say ego, she'll say self-esteem. Say thief, she'll say cleptomanic. Say liar, she'll say a figment of their imagination. Say the sun shines, she'll say it glows. Euphemism is calling a rose by any other name but, it's still a rose.

Most black women will also claim to be strong, independent and intelligent. Maybe, these black women ought to take MULE PSYCHOLOGY because, mules are strong, independent and intelligent too. That's where the term mule-headed and stubborn as a mule comes from.

The majority of black men don't want a woman with the constitution of a mule. Even a mule knows what gee and haw means.

Don't come up in here talking that non-sense about my mother, sister and aunts are women. My mother, sister and aunts are women and they are fastidious too. I don't play favorites or fall for that crap because, the truth will set mothers against daughters, sons against fathers and the truth don't discriminate.

Give me raw figures i might believe you. But you do know that this stats include people in long term relationships not necessarily married being included as single? If my family is anything to go by they live together for ages without making it formal, but stas are false and a lie alot

I honestly don't believe those stats. They could be true but IDK. Anyways, I think it's meant to be misleading anyways. Like to cause bw to go into a frenzy & run behind any man they see & latch on. All this stat can prove is that marriages are on the low, which is bad news. But not that bw are neccessarily single. I think it's gotten to the point where we're stuck "playing" house than actually getting married. Lots of bw are actually in serious relationships, just not married. And the reason why we're not getting married is b/c we're not demanding it. If marriage, family & a life long committment is what we as bw want, then we need not waste our time w/men who aren't ready to give that to us. I think when more bw stop selling themselves short & get married (if that's what they really want) then you'll see more rings on our fingers. But if we stay comfortable w/being a long time live in gf, then we'll keep low marriage stats. I personally would love to see marriage increase in the black community (not just for the sake of getting married but b/c in most cases they're already living life a married couple they just don't have to benefits of one).

if 30 % percent of black woman are married, a good percentage are shacking up and lot of them are dating why would 70% of black woman be single?

You're an idiot. 70 percent ain't all you moron. Your family don't even count as 1 percent. When you find some sense, come back.

I dont even know why I'm still single I guess it has something to do with me being extremely picky, but I am trying to cut back on that. As far as other black women and why they are single I dont know I guess each women have her own story. But most of the black women I know who are around my age are actually invovled.

70% aren't single. They are just unmarried.

Also, those stats included 16 year old girls.

You have to take into account

- Some women don't want to be married ever.
- Some women want to wait until they finish their education or career before getting married.
- Some women are lesbians.
- Some women are in jail or drug users

It goes on and on. The issue is that Black women have choice about how their lives will pan out.

When people use this 70% stat. They make it seem as if Black women are lined up in a puppy store. Barking at men hoping to be chosen. It doesn't work that way.

Most men of all nationalities and races only want a black woman for one thing and then drop her because, black women are contentious as hell. One would think 70 percent of women being single is an abundance of women. Let anyone hear there's a country where 70 percent of it's women are single and men from all over the world would make a bee line to that country but, no one is beating a path to a black womans door but gay women.

Besides only an idiot would attemtp to date a msandric woman.

No, Your the fcking idiot. 70% of black women single. Slap yourself you fcking moron. It means not married. And if you check the divorce rate in the US (55/60%) Being married don't hold alot of weight anymore. It all evens itself out.

If you are black, your just another brainwashed idiot.

If less than 5% of BM date IR. Then that would mean that 65% of black men are single too.

Hey jackass. learn how to interpret stats correctly. 70% means unmarried. doesnt mean they dont have a companion. How about instead of complaining and throwing up the bs stats, why dont you put a ring on your girls finger so she wont be another statistic?(if you have one.)

Its not about defending women. Its about getting it right.

When they came out that there are more Black men in jail than in college. That was a lie.

Colleged age men are 17 - 22. The study for men in jail was from ages 18 - 80. Its was a lie. So is this 70% Black women single stat. People have to look behind the numbers to get to the truth.

If you are trying to make a point about your anger towards Black women. Just stat your "opinion" and be done with it.
