I guess the media is obsessed with unmarried black women in order to maintain the white woman's self esteem. The only way a white woman feels good about herself if the black woman is constantly put and knocked down. Or is it that black women are truly special as my mother always said: "IF YOU ARE TALKED ABOUT; YOU'RE THOUGHT ABOUT!"

Think about it , if black women are nothing; then why spend your life talking about nothing then? Sounds like jealousy and hatred to me.

Well,Are they talk about Bin Laden a lot......…are they jealous of him to? White women are on the front of every magazine and beauty ads know to man, everywhere in the world....... I think they have enough of their own images to boost their self esteem. They are not talking about black girls, rather mocking them.

the media obsession with unmarried black women is not actully about BW. it has nothing to do with WW either. it is just another attempt to degrade the ststus of the black man. Have you ever seen one of these reports that didn't systematically break down why black men are unqualified for marriage. Basically they all say the same thing, black women are single because black men ain't shyt

its ok we are used to it

But black men have no trouble finding mates. When they call Michelle Obama a chimp, what does have to do with black men? Obama gets a lot of heat because whites feel he is corrupted by that angry black woman.Media will just come and say black men, they do not need to hide, but they put it all on black women. It is attempt to justify why black men should stick to marrying white women....NOT TO uplift black women. Black women are single because black women aint shyt, or pretty Nice try!.

Seems easy enough to understand why it happens. Pin one gender against the other while continuing to promote the flaws in the actions of both and voila, fear is established and the media gets paid.

And the only people who suffer are the black relationship seeker. I'm pretty sure the media doesn't have a problem with this.

But hey, sometimes, we have to recognize when personal choice comes into play. I don't care how many times I read "the suspect is a young black male", I never believed that this meant that I would turn to crime or that every young black man was a criminal. So if you decide to believe that because the media continues to talk about unmarried black women that this means there are no decent black mates out there for you...sucks to be you.

marriage in this country benefits women not men, plain and simple

This is part of what I'm talking about when I say pin one group against the other.

Everyone nowadays is afraid to trust because everyone knows about a horror story (or several). It's extremely discouraging to a young black man when he continually hears stories about women who desperately desire to get married, realize after they get married that they don't really want to live the married life, start acting a fool and then, when divorce happens, they get screwed in the financial area, they get screwed out of seeing their kids because she is pissed off, etc...

In the same way, many women are just as afraid to get married to a man and then that man do her horribly wrong, cheat on her, beat her, not taking care of his own children and turning his back on her, etc...

These trust bonds need to be built back and the only way that's going to be done is if BM and BW take responsibility for their own duties when it comes to a relationship. Otherwise, this trend of not getting married will just continue. It's not a black thing because Africans are still getting married, Caribbeans in the Caribbean are still getting married (though that is starting to drop too), I'm pretty sure Afro-Latinos are too. It's obvious there is a problem in our mentalities towards marriage so either we shape up or watch the problem get worse.

Like I said you mixed bag of nuts. Black girls are talked about all the time. Just look at your pathetic ass sitting here bitching about black women instead of being on a white board bragging about how 'beautiful' and 'great' you beckys are; but since you know that is not the case, that's is why you are here; on a black board bitching about black women. So much for your 'self esteem'; which most of you beckys strongly lack.

Even you white broads dont fit the white standard of beauty, which is why bleaching of the hair and blue contacts are a billion dollar entity! And lets not go there about the billions you chicks spend on skin products and tanning! Fake boobs, ass, lips etc. some of you are trying to obtain the white standard of beauty and most of you are trying to look like black women. Ugh. chile get a fucking clue!

Wrong. They talk about Bin Laden because they regard him as a THREAT.
The same way they regard BW as a threat to the peaceful, angelic WW's world. Why would you otherwise spend your time talking about what BW are up to, what they think, what they're doing?

Its a well known fact that low self-esteem, eating disorders and depression and self-harm are more common in WW than BW. Why? Because they know that the media is a lie- everyday they are forcefed unrealistic ideals about what a WW should look like- blonde, big boobs, tanned and perfect like a barbie doll. In reality they know that its a myth and they can never achieve it.
Eww black men

People love to hate black women. That's why if you go to ANY thread even remotely praising black women, there will AlWAYS be people (mostly black men!!) that have something negative to say.

Hey stupid. Those are black women on tv and all those shows doing the talking and making themselves look stupid. Me and my beautiful white wife laugh our azzes off with the rest of the world while those big 300 pounders get on tv in front of everybody wondering why they don't have men. Then worshiping white men, just acting a fool. Thats why successful men don't date black women.
I guess ww aren't obese. You live in a small bubble and it sounds like you need to be saved and you are crying out for help! Your fat ww is problem paying all bills while you are at home playing your playstation. You sound really bored & unhappy!

EVERYBODY on the face of this earth knows that the fat ww stuff is just old excuses for black women to feel better about themselves. It HAS BEEN PROVEN OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT THE FATTEST B(I)TCHES ARE BLACK WOMEN. Over 70% are obese. White women have the slimmest in shape figures second only to Asian women. Don't be mad at me, I didn't direct "Precious", and I didn't watch it either. Pick a lie that doesn't point directly at black women next time.
LOL!!!
Since Roseanne Arnold and Kristy Alley are fat azz ww, so ww are 70% fat! Your logical is insane. Your wife must be morbidly obese then...lol! You know you bm like your ww extra juicy and sloppy fat.
