Here we go again with this shit. Surprised it's coming from Vox this time around. The black man's experience is not the same as the Black woman's experience. Doesn't matter what you find when you go out looking. Unless you're looking for a brotha, you don't have a single clue what Black women encounter.
Quantity IS NOT the same as quality. 50 grubby, shiftless men hitting on a woman does not mean she "has a lot of options."
Frenchy, sweetie ...
(Editorial injerjection: Am I a real moron for not moving to Florida?? Is it really this bastion of high quality, young, beautiful women that no quality man there wants??? Or did all the men with sense decide that they had enough of the hurricanes?)
... the problem is, you're wrong. Like I said, when I was in a setting in which I'm there and a couple of overtly gay guys are there, and the black women nearby stand there looking THROUGH me at the gay guys and bemoan what they see as proof that all the good men are either dead, in jail, or GAY, then I can and do have a clue as to what black women encounter. When most of the women I'm initially attracted to have boyfriends, etc... all I'm saying is that there is definitely something else going on than what's being discussed.
And in case you overlooked it, I also took men to task for making up excuses for their reported interracial experiences, as well.
Finally... as for this statement:

You uncharacteristically miss my point. The point wasn't that QTY should be delving all into conversation with posters here who compliment her. The point is that if she has devoted 50,000% more of her posts here toward guys who say the types of things she decries about black men, than toward those she doesn't have similar problems with, then it serves as evidence of the direction in which her energies off line lie.
Just like all of the ignorant, loud, dramatic black women seem to be disproportionately in the world of the men who derive some sort of comfort in believing that these are the majority of black women. For a guy like me, who tends to look inward for his solutions, the loud, ignorant black women never, ever have come into my dating focus. Even during times when you'd think I would be prone to settle, I never focused on them. And believe me, they abound! It would have been EASY for me to do like what you do, and focus on them as the reason for being alone. But just think of the decent women I would have completely ignored, like some men do... You women are doing the same things. The comment about QTY's lines of text supports THAT idea, NOT the idea that she should be thankful and give play to fools like IronHorse.
