so what did you think? really i wanna know. i could write a post discussing the ridculousness of it all but i'd rather read your comments.
i do have a few takeaways:
1. sherri shepherd is evil, EVIL!!! (in Marcus' voice from Why Did I Get Married?). she is bitter and angry and should never ever ever ever (ever ever) speak for single black women again.
2. why can't a discussion about black women and getting married include black psychologists, sociologists, writers, thinkers, happily married only 1 or even 2 times (i'm lookin at you Steve), non-dysfunctional folk? the people on the panel had no credibility in my opinion, no knowledge base to tell any single person about getting and staying married. vsb p said it best:
Having suspect ass “dating experts” tell suspect ass single women why they can’t get a man
Steve Harvey, Hill Harper, and Jimi Izreal? Really? Sherri “my hips are too gone to box with God” and Jacque “How’d I End Up On this Panel” Reed? Overmarried, undermarried and overmarried? Oversingle and Ovaries on fire? Really Nightline? You gonna tell Black women they can’t find a man by having a bad comic, a gay dude, and a dude who’s shirt hates women chop it up with two women who can’t find a man for good reasons? That right there, ninja? That sh*t right there?
Is just disrespectful.3. i hate when people say things to sound deep but just end up repeating some cliche or "reframing the question/issue/topic," making you scratch your head like huh? for example: helena andrews prolific soundbite: blah blah blah the question shouldn't be why can't successful black women find a man, it should be can we find each other? ahhhh yessss. that's it. the bitch is the new black has solved our relationship problems. we asking the wrong questions.
what say ya'll?
