42% of Black Women Never Married December 29, 2009

Posted by Michael in Family.

Huh?  The number goes up to 70% of successful black women with college degrees.

Those are numbers I never heard before.

Wait for the idiot who says that black women don’t have to “settle” but they have to “compromise.”  What’s the difference?

A “back pocket girl”?

Jeebers.

@Michael – a “back pocket girl” is one that you keep in your back pocket in case your current relationship doesn’t work out.

2. Michael - December 29, 2009

I got the concept, Chief. I just can’t imagine treating a lady like that.

3. MCPO Airdale - December 29, 2009

My son is married to a brilliant, beautiful, educated and successful African-American woman. She’ll tell you that it is even worse than what is revealed in the video. I’ve learned a lot about this phenomenon from her.

4. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Well, with everyone putting out like there’s no tomorrow, what incentive is there for a guy to get married?

I know, I know. It’s like, all you have to do is show up at a blackjack table, talk to some chick, and BINGO, you’re in.

6. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Mr. Lipstick says that I didn’t put out for a looooong time.

7. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Heh, made him Earn It.

8. geoff - December 29, 2009

Mr. Lipstick says that I didn’t put out for a looooong time.

Hey now. Making us guys wait that extra minute is like torture.

9. TattooedIntellectual - December 29, 2009

Compromise is acknowledging that your MrPerfectPrinceCharming list is an unattainable ideal but has 1 or 2 valid requirements. Settling is opting for a schmuck b/c you don’t think you can do any better, or b/c he was the first guy to ask.

10. Michael - December 29, 2009

>>>Mr. Lipstick says that I didn’t put out for a looooong time.

I want to hear that from Mr. Lipstick.

Does a “looooong time” mean after you left the parking lot?

Oh never mind. You will just make him say the right thing.

11. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Hey now. Making us guys wait that extra minute is like torture.

Mr. L tells me that I’m getting my ass kicked by you guys.

But he just left to bring home pizza, so I’m okay with that.

12. Michael - December 29, 2009

Settling is opting for a schmuck b/c you don’t think you can do any better, or b/c he was the first guy to ask.

STFU.

Cathy might read this thread. Did you ever think of that?

13. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

I posted my comment before seeing Michael’s comment.

That was an actual quote from Mr. L, after having been informed of the subject of this discussion.

14. TattooedIntellectual - December 29, 2009

Cathy might read this thread. Did you ever think of that?

Cathy has obviously decided that she simply compromised.

Just b/c some of us might say she compromised too much…

15. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Mr. L tells me that I’m getting my ass kicked by you guys.

Correction, he said that I unpinned a grenade. And threw it or something.

A “back pocket girl”

Remember, boys: Always use a pocket protector.

Heh

Heh

Heh

18. Michael - December 29, 2009

*Michael lights a cig with Zippo Black Ice lighter*

See, I figure I can tease Lipstick until she is red in the face and get away with it.

Because, she knows I love her.

You could look around for seventeen or eighteen years before you meet a sweeter, kinder, more charming chick than Lipstick.

19. lauraw - December 29, 2009

It’s just sick that those beautiful ladies can’t find decent mates. They are movie-star gorgeous.

I used to work with a tall handsome black man from Trinidad. He was one of these professional black men who (though he was in a committed relationship with a black girlfriend) said that he preferred dating white women. He said they were more easygoing, and that black ladies were ridiculously suspicious and too prone lash out over every little thing.

I think if good men were so very scarce that I was in a fierce competition for my man with every woman of my race, that would make me a wee bit possessive and fearful, too.

Can’t imagine what those women go through when they realize they are a back-pocket girl. That’s got to hurt like the dickens.

20. Michael - December 29, 2009

I blame Hubert Humphrey.

Seriously.

I mean, no shit, I’m not kidding.

It was him, and his ilk of white liberals, that destroyed previously strong black neighborhoods, churches, and families.

I hope Hubert Humphrey is burning in hell.

I know that is not a proper Lutheran sentiment, but Hubert Humphrey makes my scalp sweat.

21. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

*face burning*

Really.

22. Michael - December 29, 2009

If you look at it from an economic perspective, what white liberals did in the ’60s and ’70s was create an entrenched and dependent underclass of blacks, who served as a low-cost labor pool to keep union labor in check. At the time, union labor was a major force.

Good for capitalism!

In the meantime, the system was undermined with nonexistent border controls, which gave us a new low-cost labor pool from Mexico.

More good for capitalism!

More bad for African-Americans. Remember the race riots, that burned out major portions of American cities?

I swear, a little bit of me wants to be a communist. It’s like Laura said, how much must it hurt for these beautiful and talented women to be a “back pocket girl”?

23. Michael - December 29, 2009

Really.

Yes really.

That used up your quota of nice remarks from me until 2011, Sasquatch.

24. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

All love back to Michael and Cathy, And Casey and Peaches, who are my sweetie pies. “Yes you are, who’s my good baby?”

25. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Well once again, I am out of sync,

26. Michael - December 29, 2009

“Yes you are, who’s my good baby?”

Casey and Peaches are total sluts for anyone with a belly rub on offer.

I hate to say that, but it’s a fact.

27. Michael - December 29, 2009

Still, it’s cute how they both have this “check in with the alpha male in the pack” routine. They mostly love Cathy, but they will come up to me for a status check, and I have to give them a pet and rub them to let them know that they are OK.

28. Cathy - December 29, 2009

Engaging thread, Luv-bugs.

I know that is not a proper Lutheran sentiment, but Hubert Humphrey makes my scalp sweat.

IIRC, Humphrey was Lutheran.

*waits quietly for the groans from the Batcave*

29. Cathy - December 29, 2009

Settling is opting for a schmuck b/c you don’t think you can do any better, or b/c he was the first guy to ask.

Michael was not the first beau to set eyes on me as wife-material.

Me done good.

30. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

*sneaky belly rub*

31. Lipstick - December 29, 2009

Okay, after Cathy’s comments, my last comment just sounded wrong.

Casey, where are you!

32. Michael - December 29, 2009

Okay, after Cathy’s comments, my last comment just sounded wrong.

See, that right there is one reason to love Lipstick.

After 3.5 years of experience at IB, she still thinks it is possible to sound wrong.

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!

33. Enas Yorl - December 30, 2009

*Sneaks belly rub on Michael*

Hmmm. No, that definitely sounds wrong.

34. sandy burger - December 30, 2009

what white liberals did in the ’60s and ’70s was create an entrenched and dependent underclass of blacks

Slavery deserves most of the blame.

But liberals certainly did a lot of damage, and much of it was well-intentioned, sadly.

35. Russ from Winterset - December 30, 2009

I think its interesting how descendants of the Chinese immigrants to the West Coast, who were brought over essentially as slave labor for the intercontanental railroad, have similar problems with family disintegration, illegitimacy, incarceration & addiction to welfare that the African-American community does.

Oh, and “similar”……….should probably read “totally different”.

36. kevlarchick - December 30, 2009

Another issue is black men on the down low. That’s for another post I reckon.

37. Russ from Winterset - December 30, 2009

I’d like to thank KC for refraining from criticizing my misspelling of “intercontinental”.

38. MCPO Airdale - December 30, 2009

Slavery deserves most of the blame.

Codswallop!

Up until the Great Society legislation in the 60′s, African-Americans had, for the most part, familial structures in the mainstream. Anyone who tells you different is either ignorant of history or misleading you to forward an agenda.

39. kevlarchick - December 30, 2009

Don’t forget the Irish! Indentured servants, the scum of New World society, and now look at us! We can outdrink most ethnic groups and still hold a job.

40. Mel Brooks from Winterset - December 30, 2009

OK, OK. We’ll take the sandy burgers and the muslihoons…….BUT WE DON’T WANT THE KEVLs!

41. Michael - December 30, 2009

*gives KC the stink eye*

I hate it when the Irish start acting uppity.

42. Rodney Dangerfield from Winterset - December 30, 2009

Hey Michael, you know the difference between “shanty” Irish and “lace curtain” Irish?

The “lace curtain” Irish put the dishes away BEFORE they piss in the sink.

43. kevlarchick - December 30, 2009

Don’t forget Black Irish. Mr Kevlar is one of those, often mistaken for a Mexican because of his eyes, hair, and skin.

Supposedly Black Irish are ancestors of a wrecked ship from the Spanish armada. Which would explain Mr Kevlar’s impressive mast.

44. Retired Geezer - December 30, 2009

*blushes*

45. Dave in Texas - December 30, 2009

I think my family came over on a prison ship.

46. kevlarchick - December 30, 2009

Are you Black Irish, Geezer? That would explain your wit, charm, intelligence, and penchant for shining lights on naked boobies.

47. daveintexas - December 30, 2009

>> wit, charm, intelligence, and penchant for shining lights on naked boobies

Dang. I only score one out of four on this list.

48. Cathy - December 30, 2009

Supposedly Black Irish are ancestors of a wrecked ship from the Spanish armada. Which would explain Mr Kevlar’s impressive mast.

Didn’t know that about the Black Irish KC. Erm…not the mast part.

Spanish, and Portuguese ships (and their masts I guess) got around. When I asked my Dutch father why his hair was dark (mine and my sister’s also dark brown with darker complexions, while our older brother was a toe-head blond with fair complexion) Dad said Spanish and Portuguese were always trying to conquer the Dutch by ‘boinking’ the Dutch women… I was a kid and Dad used nicer language, but after visiting Portugal, I ‘met my family’ seeing my hair color, complexion, features, and hazel eyes in many of the people there.

*delightfully considering Lauraw the sistah*

49. Cathy - December 30, 2009
50. Dave in Texas - December 30, 2009

No kidding?

Apparently I spent a number of years trying to conquer North Dallas and Waco.

51. lauraw - December 30, 2009

My older sister has hazel eyes, Cathy.

And pshaw, I’m sure they weren’t trying to conquer, it’s just that Dutch babes are really smokin’ hot…

52. Michael - December 30, 2009

Dutch babes are smokin’ hot. That’s why I married one.

Also, they have ridiculously bad judgment about men, which is a positive feature.

For me. And, apparently, for many Portuguese occupiers.

Also, they are insanely kind and generous. Would a sane person knit a hat for Rosetta’s bald dome after meeting him once?

No. I don’t think so.

53. Retired Geezer - December 30, 2009

Dang. I only score one out of four on this list

*Takes away Dave’s flashlight*

Are you Black Irish, Geezer?

My first, middle and last name are Irish but I was adopted.

I think I might be one of BrewFan’s kids.

54. Mare - December 30, 2009

That was really interesting. Every one of those women looked, and sounded (intelligent) like a trophy wife. Gorgeous, smart, the works. To me, these women with standards make them even more attractive.

I think it might have been lipstick who said (paraphrase), with everyone putting out like crazy and being pregnant out of wedlock having very little stigma attached, why would a man go out looking for one, quality, lifetime woman?

Sad.

But I think you will find this situation with quality white women also. Not in the numbers for black women but finding guys who are interested in one women who doesn’t act like a porn queen on the 3rd date is getting harder I think.

55. Mare - December 30, 2009

My father was black Irish. Thick black hair, light blue eyes, and a great sense of humor.

56. Michael - December 30, 2009

finding guys who are interested in one women who doesn’t act like a porn queen on the 3rd date is getting harder I think.

Whaaat???

You think a guy should sit through three entire dates establishing a relationship, sharing feelings and shit, just to get laid??????

57. Lipstick - December 30, 2009

Yep, at the very least. Better to let him sweat for months.

And if he starts hinting around about moving in together, you tell him he has to “buy the cow”.

I actually used that term, therefore dubbing myself “the cow” forever.

58. skinbad - December 30, 2009

Problem: Young, hot chicks with not enough eligible men in their age range.

The old love guru solution: You ladies should be dating old guys like me!

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

59. Michael - December 30, 2009

I actually used that term, therefore dubbing myself “the cow” forever.

Dear Love Cow:

You are going to regret posting that remark online forever.

I personally guarantee it. Until the day I die.

It has been copied to my hard drive.

Just ask Laura “springtime awakening” W if you think I am kidding.

60. Lipstick - December 30, 2009

Moooooo

61. Dave in Texas - December 30, 2009

I’ve never seen a svelt cow before.

Well, before this past spring.

62. wiserbud - December 30, 2009

What if I’m only interested in renting the cow for parties and weekends?

63. Lipstick - December 30, 2009

No dice, wiser.

Cows have standards.

64. wiserbud - December 30, 2009

What if I took her to the moooooovies……

or maybe a nice moooosical?

65. Lipstick - December 30, 2009

hehheh sputter heh, stop it!

giggle

cut that out!

66. Dave in Texas - December 30, 2009

deked out on my “svelt” by wiser mooing.

goddammit.

pour whiskey on my arm and set it on fire.

67. wiserbud - December 31, 2009

deked out on my “svelt” by wiser mooing.

heh.

Remember, you mess with the bull, you might get the horns…

68. Cathy - December 31, 2009

Guys, you’re milking this one.

69. wiserbud - December 31, 2009

Guys, you’re milking this one.

Udderly impossible.

70. BrewFan - December 31, 2009

Come to Wisconsin and smell my dairy air!

What?

71. Russ from Winterset - December 31, 2009

Methinks that another informational post about the cattle business might be coming up on New Years Day.

72. Honeys Pizza - December 31, 2009

When I went to a public university, there were almost no black women in any of my classes, especially tech related or math classes. I can’t think of even one black woman I chatted with back then. In all these videos they act like they have to stoop down to everyone else in the whole world. Where did that come from?

73. kevlarchick - December 31, 2009

Act like a porn queen. What’s with that? And what’s with these leathery chicks and their cleavage all over TV? Nasty, dirty leg.
