Black Women, Go to the Chapel and Get Married

with 2 comments

A few nights ago Nightline aired this short story about Black women and the single life:

So this is what educated black women have been reduced to: a segment on tabloid television?  Yes, it’s tabloid; Nightline hasn’t gone into  depth on a story since Koppel left.  One question I wish a reporter would have asked for this story is why don’t eligible, educated black males want to be married?  One woman even said that a lot of black men put them on the low burner for later and referred to them as back pocket women.

And then they used Steve Harvey as the expert on this story.  Yeah… okay.  If they say so.   I think a better expert would have been Karyn Langhorne Folan whose upcoming book, “Don’t Bring Home a White Boy” is slated for release in February 2010.

Maybe the women who appeared on Nightline will read Folan’s book and get inspired to check out the Black American Brides website.  I know it’s the second time I’ve mentioned it in four weeks time, but it’s not a shameless plug.  I just know the ladies of the site are determined to reduce the number of single black women.
