Reminded me of a Maxwell mixed with a little Raheem Devaugn. We dated the whole first semester, and during that time he opened my mind…

ARE BLACK WOMEN TO HARD ON MEN?



There are 1,000,000 single black women out there. It has to be a valid reason for this. Black men are dating outside of their race and the numbers are increasing. It has become more common to see a black man with a non-african american woman on his arm.



I have a friend that recently divorced and he said if he was to ever get married again he would marry a white woman. This sadden me but I want to find out why.
