If you look around and have no examples of beautiful Black love in your life, I dare say that it says more about you than it does about Black love.

Don’t believe the hype. The statistics will tell you that Black love is practically extinct; that Black men and women can’t get along; that Black men won’t commit; that the more successful a Black woman is the less likely she is to be married. These kinds of stats will drive even an optimist to plan a pity-party alone with the Patron. Note to self: statistics are not laws, prophecies or decrees, nor can they predict your destiny.
If you use media portrayals, music videos and reality television programming as your visual measuring stick regarding the state of Black love and marriage, it’s not surprising your perspective is bleak. Face it, you’ve been bamboozled.
