What’s Up With The Sisters?”
6/14/2008 7:16:24 AM
I think it is a huge mistake for some many Undiscovered Treasures to resign themselves to never being discovered just based the unavailability of only ONE segment of the entire male population.
According to statistics Black women are in trouble when it comes to finding a suitable mate, with well over 40 percent who have never married. Even more disappointing, statistics indicate that the more money they make the more their chances of marriage decrease. We get into a whole other kind thing for those Black women who are waiting for the ‘right” Black man to enter their life. Wait! Wait!! Wait, before you react, I am in no way saying or implying that there is anything wrong with waiting for a Black man or desiring to be in a relationship with the right one. That is your decision and yours alone.
This blog was titled “What’s Up With The Sisters?” because I believe black women have more choices and more options that they need to avail themselves of and open their hearts and lives to. Statistics should not be allowed to predict their futures. There are thousands of wonderful, loving, caring, intelligent Black women of all ages and backgrounds who have prepared themselves for the probability of living out their lives alone. I think it is a huge mistake for some many Undiscovered Treasures to resign themselves to never being discovered just based the unavailability of only ONE segment of the entire male population.
Now, I thought the goal of marriage was to find someone you want to be with, who wants to be with you, with whom you share life goals and interests and you just LIKE being with one another. If that is still the truth why should the gentleman’s skin color matter?
I’ve read quite a few articles on the subject of black women “dating out”, which refers to black women dating white men or outside of there race. What a crazy myth! Well, herein lays the problem.
How can one date or marry outside of your race if there is only ONE race in the first place?
It’s called the Human Race, of which we are all a part. We ARE all the same, we just happen to live in different color human “houses”. I believe God fixed it that way for a purpose. Probably because He really doesn’t care who you marry when it comes to skin color, I believe character should be the more important issue.
So my sisters I challenge YOU to write your OWN script for your future! Don’t let family, friends, peers, statistics or even your own “whatevers” prevent you from having the love, the happiness and the future that you long for because of a man’s skin color. Ask God to help you position your heart and life to see, know and accept the man who is waiting to discover all of the beauty and wonder that lies within you…
Girl, go for the character within not the skin color without.
