I could care less if it is a shortage or not, the only shortage we got I think is a character one. No one respects character anymore they only respect assets.

I totally agree. There is no black male shortage...only a black man shortage. And this in turn boils down to a shortage of good character as well as responsibility of one's life and those close to him.

We stay divided because of our mentality. If there is something affecting the black man then there is something affecting the black woman. If the black man is faulty then the woman he came out of is faulty as well.

Although black women, and women period these days are outearning and outlearning their male counterparts, financials and a degree don't quantify a person. I would differ to say that there is a shortage of quality black men and women. It's a shared responsibility. A college degree, a steady job and a 401K don't qualify a person's mental stability or overall fortitude.

A person is quantified and qualified by their actions and deeds and the ability to positively impact those around them.
I've seen a lot of so-called educated and so called good black women who get with low quality men and who also have poorly disciplined and problem children. A degree from a university dosen't make up for a lack of intelligence. Board room saavy dosen't carry over to relationship savvy.

This is not an attack on anyone just a call for us to really look at how we value things and people. Black men who are so-called succesful say the same thing about the shortage of so-called good black women. It's our perception of things and it's really messed up. Our condition is a shared responsibility

How quickly we forget that we layed in each other's vomit and feces at the bottom of the slave ship not too long ago and not by our own choice.

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
