This week’s question originated from my Women vs. Men Relationship Forum held on September 19, 2015.
This controversial question was posed by a gentleman named Mark in a room full of black women whom were anxious to address his question but I decided to tackle it first.Â His question was Why do black women expect so much from black men but don’t expect the same of white men and other races?Â Of course, this started a major disturbance in the room and most of the women were not happy nor understood why he was asking this question.Â At first I was offended by his question but after thinking for a moment I was more confused than offended.
Although I have never dated outside my race I felt that it needed to be said that I do not expect any more from a black man than I do from any other man of any race.Â I would think that most women are more concerned with being loved, respected, cherished and supported by any man¦.period!!!
At that point, most of the women rushed to the microphone to piggy off what I said.Â The next woman who addressed this question was Tammi.Â She is a black woman who has dated black men and men outside her race.Â Tammi said that she expects a man to be loving, loyal, honest, nurturing, and just to be there for her and only her.Â She ended by saying she needs a man to be in her corner and not just for his blackness but because he is a man and there you have it!
