WOMEN SHOULD HAVE THE OPTION OF STRIVING FOR A "DENZEL" WITHOUT HEARING A BUNCH OF FRIGGIN LIP ABOUT HOW WE NEED TO REFOCUS/REVISE/RETHINK BECAUSE WE DON'T DESERVE IT OR BECAUSE WE'RE NOT GIVING THE "LOWER-RUNG" OF BROTHAS A CHANCE OR WHATEVER OTHER REASON. The same way that men can strive for the prettiest available woman...
We men strive for the woman who is the prettiest available... again, regardless of her station in life... Women, on the other hand, strive for the prettiest available and the mercedes...

Let us want whatever the Hell it is we want! Sure, we may end up with something else when all is said and done, but this rush by Black men to immediately shoot down any of the Black woman's romantic/relationship aspirations...
Frenchy... back away from the computer, these are just opinions - nobdy is claiming to be Dr. Phil here.

Why should we reduce ourselves down to taking up with whoever is cute?? We expect more because we're smarter. And because we have more responsibilities.
It is not a reduction!!

Why do men feel compelled to even contribute this?
I can't speak for anybody anybody else, but I contribute to this because it is a discussion forum.

Do you think there is a Black woman alive who does not "realize the limitations" of her situation?
Quite obviously, yes.
