Its true because there are less black men overall than black women because of prison and young deaths.

But then you would have to include the black women who are prostitutes, porn stars, the women with OOW kids, and the women with std's, and gay women...So I don't think so...

Are we talking about the shortage of good black men or the shortage of good black women? Why can't we stay on topic without always shifting it to the other gender? Let's stop the blaming and stick to the actual topic for once. Please make another thread about the shortage of good black women; two separate focus would be a refreshing change.

ya too many Black men in prison, gay (DL), dying because of gang gun violence, not college educated, and more Black women then men. All this adds up. I would say the good black women to good black men ratio is like 3:1 right now.

Depends on who you ask.

Ask a FAT UGLY BROKE SINGLE LONELY bw and she'll say yes there is a shortage of good bm.

Ask an attractive in shape successful bw with a good attitude, and she'll say no there is no shortage.

Ask an ugly broke dude, and he'll say yes there is a shortage of good bw.

Ask a dude that got something going for himself, and he'll say no there is no shortage.

Ask an angry gay white guy, and he'll say what CHAD said on post #5.

It's all about perspective here. You'll see that if anyone bothers with this thread. Fat Ugly unsuccessful women and men always have a hard time finding a mate. They use the "shortage" thing as an excuse for being out of shape and broke.

There is no shortage of "good" Black men. If you are talking about decent, employeed, and loving men. There are many, many, many Black men like that.
If you are talking about the Morris Chestnut, Corporate Thug that will spoil Black women with a Black card. Yes there is a shortage of that guy.
Black women in general don't know what they want in a man. They know what they should want on paper. But in reality. They don't want that in a man. At least not in a Black man.
In reality. Black women want a corporate Thug for a Black man. They want a super liberal nerd for a White guy. They want the latin playboy. They want the Italian Thug Whore. They want the tall Filipino thug. It goes on and on.

DL black men is a cope out because for every gay black man there are 3 gay black women...thats cancelled...College educated doesn't make you a good mate, there are more women period than men, so that don't mean anything...
Prisons, well there are black women in prison, with OOW kids, and have std's so that would cancel that out....So it evens out pretty well...

There are no shortage of good black men lol I swear to good.
Like attracts like.
Im currently dating 3 black men (nothing sexual between us).
one lives 40 miles away from me and he takes 2 fridays off a month to spend the whole weekend with me, he stays in a hotel because I don't believe a man should stay over at your house if he's not your man. on our first date he bought me Hugo Boss perfume box set and a card saying why im special :o) and brotha is situated, good job etc.
the other guy im dating is just as wonderful, he has showered with gifts, he always plans great activities for us to do, and he is very situated and adores me, he's lovely.
man number 3 is fairly new but were going to the theatre next week :o).
I told all these 3 men im looking for a serious relationship but I want to also take my time and get to know them, and which ever one I click with best and he feels the same way may be the one I choose to be with. In the mean time im having a great time.
So ladies.......there are good brothas out there, you just gotta be ready to handle one and know your worth.
ciao.

Of course there less black men. Black people have washed away half of their heritage "in the name of good hair"....

We as blacks don't have to race mix, or perm to have good hair.Let that sh!t grow and braid it up. No one cares if you use extensions. We all know your hair is straight when you tave the braids out anyway. Stop cutting that beautiful hair.

Commenting originally posted by Annazayla:

Most black women do not desire the AUTHENCIALLY good black men, they would rather have a thug who is PRETENDING to be a good black man. Black women will waste their entire 20's and half of their 30's dealing with no good men or thugs; then as time goes on and these women get older the same men that they refused to date when they were 25, now all of a sudden they want him at 35-at this point, what type of response to they think they will receive from those "good black men?" A cookie? I think not.

Most of the "good black men" that black women don't want when they are younger, may have not been the most handsome at that time, but as they got older, they grew into their good looks, finished school, gained a good job, thus presenting him with more opportunities on the dating scene - thus he will not want that black woman who overlooked him years earlier for a thug - that brother isn't going to want a black woman who is worn down mentally and physically.

Some helpful advice for BW:

There is no shortage of good black men. This stuff is a crock! This is a "packaging" issue. This is about the shortage of black males who are tall, dark, handsome, rich, athletic, over 6 foot with degrees. Why not consider a male who may not have a degree. We have been doing it for you all since this college thing started. Here is a novel way to increase the numbers of good black men (in your minds):

1) Why not consider a man who is significantly (3 or more inches) shorter than yourself?(Ohhh, a good "increase" can occur here folks)

2) Why not consider a man who may not have a college degree but has a stable job and a good head on his shoulders?

3) So what if he is not athletic, most of you are not and yet you want him to be.

4) So what if he is not making a whole lot of money, chances are you do not either, you are just lying about it in your dating profile. But, with incomes combined, maybe a dinner a mickey d's will not be so expensive.

When you take into consideration the above advice along with other measures you can easily figure out yourselves, the "number" of good black men in your "pool" as time goes from present to infinity approaches the number of black women in the dating market (becomes nearly equal). I hope that this helped, do not let this shortage blaje blaje get you down, it is not true. And remember, this is just all in your heads!
