Here's one thing that bothers me... It seems OK to compare black men to their white counterparts... that's the basis of so many gripes about us... We supposedly don't measure up as fathers and providers... And it's Ok to compare female outcomes... Again, this is a source of a lot of gripes. Black women don't like, for example, that their chances for marriage are comparatively lower... I.e., the outcomes are unequal... not good...

What's not OK: a straight up comparison of white women and black women in any way whatsoever in which black women come out for the worse... All hell breaks loose...
