^Sweety, you can't make nobody love someone they ain't attracted to. If a lot of you guys grow so confidence and stop trying to analyze every damn thing you might find a girl.

Honey, By the same token, if some of your women sisteren would stop playing the Victim, then maybe ya'll could find a "Good" Black Man. What the hell is "Good" anyways? OUtside of the obvious non-domestic/alcoholic context. Is there really a such thing as a "Good" anything?

When girls think of good, they prolly mean on their level. You're right, there are plenty of "good" Black men out there, but are they what the girl is looking for. You right, maybe Darnell is a good Black man. I ask you this though, can he hang wit Michele who's going to be promoted to C.E.O. of a Fortune 500 company? The number of sucessful Black women is getting ever so higher. Maybe I should've specified what I meant. The number of successful good Black men is far and few between. Don't beleive me? Look at college drop out rates.

And that, my little Dressed-For-Sunday-School, friend is the problem. We're are equating "Good" with money. What if Darnel is a teacher? He's making anywhere between 30-60k. and that's WITH his Masters. So because he is making 35k and Michelle is making 100k, that makes him a BAD black man. Or supposedly "Not on her Level" Or let's look at it from the other way around. FOr those of ya'll that remmeber "Waiting to Exhale" All them cats was Corporate Executives or Lawyers, they was making BAAAAAAANNNNK, but look how they dawged out they women. According to your definition, because they were making the same type of money and ran int he same social circles, they were still on "Their Level" But they still screwed their women over. Women place emphasis on a man's financial status as a way to determine if he's a good man or not. Which, is good if you want a man to take care of you. But that criteria knocks out alot of guys who might be considered "Good" Black Men, but unfortuantely chose a Profession where they weren't going to make bank. P.S. Let's get real, we know good and DAMN well, Michlelle ain't about to become CEO of nobody's damn Fortune 500 Company. Let's not allow Condalezza to gas anybody's head up. Black women are makin' strides, black men too, but let's not get delusional. Regional VP or Corporate Director, yea, no problem. But CEO? Nahh...too many old white man are still around to stop that from happening

:roll: It's Hollywood Bra.....of course they gonna try to paint the brothas there as trifling. Money is a factor when it comes to finding compatible Black men, whether you believe it or not. Men in general still have a problem with making more money than them. Alot of men find successful women intimidating. Personally, it doesn't matter to me. More power to the sista that's bringing in 7 figures. It's a lot of ways you can look at it man, but I was just talkning about one. Not necessarily the most important.

What you mean by playing the victim? And when you make comments don't generalize cause your point will never be justified. Just like if a white person came up in here talking about all Black people are lazy; he sounds stupid.

But we are lazy, u didn't know that? But yea, I gotta generalize my comments cuz If start pointin' specific people out, then they gonna have a hissy fit on some, "WHY YOU ALWAYS GOTTA BRING MY NAME UP!?! Now, by "Playing Victim" i mean by using the general phrase, "There ain't no good men left"/"There is a dwindling supply of men left!" Over and Over and Over again. Ya follow me? Its just like if I said, "I'm surrounded by a bunch of n*ggaZ at my school" over and over and over. Yet I offered no solutions. Then I'd be playing victim, because obviously I'm not doing anything ot change the situation, but I keep singing the same song over and over again. I'm tryin' keep the peace. Am I makin' sense?
