This wild broIn that book, there are a few things that I agree with, largely the parts that deal with the Black male ego.
The entitlement that comes from many westernized religions, often place Black relationships in peril in the first place. Stats are true, there are far more Black women who qualify professionally than Black men. So, when brothers are given a system of belief that Man is supposed to be in charge of the home and finances, why should that belief system override the sister with a degree and credentials in the matter? Who is more qualified? There is no doubt that this government is against the success of Black couples, Black families in general. But falling for the okey doke in regard to gender inequality, especially coming from a book of fiction? Isn't the right move.
So when I hear these so called podcast intellectuals talk down to Black women? I remember that American Black women are the most educated people on the entire planet, and they never stopped trying to elevate the Black family, even though they may not have a mate of equal merit.
It behooves Black men to listen to those who are of higher thought AND successful, without the Black male ego pulling them down.
