+ I am not believing stereotypes, just checking the facts in your statement that "I guess you actually believe that it is only Black women that have sex with prisoners or murderer or that it is only Black female guards that have sex with the inmates they are in charge"...surely you could have shown links that other races of women did or are doing the same thing by now.  My point is that the mistakes of Black women are routinely given a pass by other Black women, yet actions of Black males are frequently dissed by those same Black women, i.e. Single motherhood vs single fatherhood.  While a Black single mother is often viewed as strong, wise,  and infallible, the other co-parent is considered a low-life that isn't doing enough and is the reason for any family failure....that's why i bought up the four pregnant prison guards and the murderer story.  You see, it would be a totally different tale if these women had a baby or two with a man that LATER became a murderer and convict.  In that case the women could say, he was a good man when I was dating/married to him but he turned to a life of crime or became evil, i.e. like the DC Sniper John Allen Muhammad.  

 

But in the actual case, what is the mindset of not one, but FOUR PRISON GUARDS that KNOW that the FATHER OF THEIR KIDS. is. a. MURDERER???...and ran drugs in and out the prison walls.  

 

This is an extreme story, but details the mindset of many hoodrats, i.e. I don't need no man' or 'Black men aint spit'.  From these hood people, you often get the detailed descriptions of the son of a single mother, as written in the article I posted.  I find it strange that so many women here were quick to dismiss the heartfelt feelings of a son that felt coerced into developing hatred for his father....a man which mom selected in the first place (personally responsibility?  not likely)
