Black women are a very diverse group. There aren't many things I would say are absolutes about us. But one thing I know for sure is if the media and Black men started saying that there were no good Black women around we would speak up and loudly.
So I have to wonder why it is that Black men aren't speaking up. The media has been stuck on the lonely Black woman/ no good Black men thing for a very long time now. And I have yet to see an organized response to this from Black men.
Why is that?
I absolutely know that it's a myth that there are no good Black men. I happen to know quite a few good Black men. Smart, educated, healthy, never been arrested, etc. So when for instance ABC's Nightline does a show about the supposed lack of good Black men why was it that 600 Black women showed up but almost no Black men?
If 600 Black men were going to go on TV talking about the lack of good Black women you better believe there would be 600 Black woman there begging to differ.
So please help me here. Why aren't the good Black men out there standing up to these media attacks? What's going on?
