Is the Black man so morally and intellectually bankrupt that he is incapable of pursuing these things on his own? Must he be coaxed into these things (that are primarily to HIS benefit) by the Black woman? How embarassing.
Frenchy! Why do you say everything that I am thinking. Anyway, its difficult for me side with any argument, because I made the very same point Brother Detroit is making earlier in our discussion: If more women raised their standards, then Black men would fall in line. But what you are saying here is true also. Black men should want these things for themselves, not because they want some pussy. If your only incentive for wanting to get married is sex, then that is kind of sad. And why does all of the moral responsibility of remainig virtuous have to fall on the women? Why can't men learn to keep their legs close by pursuing marriage before sex too? More double standards!
