    Hey, to all those mixed men who feel they are not black enough or white enough, hang out with us Latinos, we’re mixed, we understand you ;) , we’re mixed with whites, with indians, with blacks, with asians, with arabs, hey, the more races the merrier for us, come join the party! And for the black guys afraid to date outside your race for the lame reasons exposed by these guys, pffft… Whatever, let THEM restrict themselves on the dating pool, that means just more for you to love!

    Black men who got a degree and think they are Superman. Let’s get serious. These guys are so arrogant, for no reason. They talk like they are a prize.

  • ReesyPiecey

    I absolutely love this series!  I just wish they would ask some better questions…the questions seem a little basic to me. There are some more thought provoking questions I believe they could ask on these series though

    Ok for the ladies……. Barack Obama or Idris Elba?

    • Mipleo

      Barack… fine, smart, ambitious, a leader, cool… yes mam

  • Firefox

    enjoyed this episode too..i’m sure it’ll get better with time. i really appreciate the diversity of the panel this time…maybe in the future, we can see a panel that’s all over the age of 40? or all married? to see how specific groups respond to the same question. keep up the good work mn

  • NN

    All the men had some appeal. In the first episodes, the men felt roguish and caveman like. These men were thoughtful and diverse as were the questions. Kela is awesome, great makeup, subtle beauty and manages the comments well. Keep her!

    • http://twitter.com/POWTV Birch

      I had good makeup too

  • FinVoilaQuoi

    I know pointing this out makes me a mean ol’ hag but my issue (just the one) is that Kela can’t manage to pronounce the name of the website. She’s adorable and sharp but please hand her a flashcard that says “noire” – say “NWAR”. She can even go http://www.forvo.com/word/noir/#fr to listen and or download it for later

    Thoroughly enjoyed episode 2….Side note: this is what TV One or BET needs on the air. Madame Noire needs to pitch this asap

  • CanadianBella

    Damn why Devale gotta be married though?! #HeyBoo :) 

    • http://lizburr.com Liz

      LOLOL! I heart Devale, he was a pleasure to have on set lol.

  • Pam

    I like this.  I’m looking forward to more episodes.  

  • Soso

    Kela is so pretty forget the men shes gorge and really good at standing her ground when the guys get a bit hmmmm….

  • Destinee

    These forums are wonderful – keep them coming. I have been using these topics as guidelines for my own local Happy Hour Crew when we meet once a week.  Everyone seems to enjoy!  Looking forward to the extended cut!

  • Pre Evans

    I love this series! It is funny and too real. And Kela HOLDS IT DOWN for the women! 

    • http://twitter.com/POWTV Birch

      thanks :)

  • Ms_Mara

    I enjoyed it and I thought Kela did a good job again. She doesn’t dominate the conversation; she asks her questions and then falls back. I thought her expressions to some of the answers were funny too. And I appreciate that these guys are willing to be honest even if it means some of them come off sorta….. doggish. lol I’ll be back to watch the extended version. And high five to Demetrius. :)

  • MS

    Kela is a great host and moderator of the conversation! Its all in fun! This is not a 60 mins interview. For all those people critiquing i would like to see you do a better job! Keep up the good work MN!

    I like the the whole “Ask a Black Man” The guys are great. I actually do this with my brothers. I am the only girl so it really rings home for me. It’s funny to hear how guys somewhat think alike.

  • Imogen

    Kela needs to tone it down. The show’s called Ask a Black Man. Honestly, I don’t want to hear from her as much. She talks way too much and the camera focuses on her too much for my liking. One guy was making a statement, and she said they need to turn his mike off. Really?? They played it off as a joke, but I think she’s seriously taking away from the show. And the questions? Michelle Obama or Beyonce? These just aren’t the questions that I, a woman, wanted to ask black men. Last episode was better. This one disappointed me. Maybe after I see the extended version, I’ll feel better about it.

    • http://lizburr.com Liz

      We actually like Kela the way she is, but thanks for voicing your concerns. 

      • http://twitter.com/POWTV Birch

        I like Kela too lol

              I wanna take Kela to iHop

    • Miss B

      I really like Kela & feel she did a perfect job. I was actually thinking that they really should have turned his mic off before she even said it lol…no disrespect to him.

    • http://twitter.com/panamajackson Panama Jackson

      I don’t know…Kela did a great job on set and even looking at these videos…I think she held it down like it needed to be held down.

        Yeah Kela was dope. IDK what else they wanted people to do! smh – Streetz

  • UKJourno

    I think it’s necessary not to overly edit this.  I feel like it’s too short and detached.  It seems like whoever was editing this was merely trying to get a soundbite from each of the panel members.  Let them develop their answers.  Unless, this version is a trail for the extended episode, there is no point it.  So like the person said below – I’ll wait for the extended version. I didn’t really get much out of this episode.

    • http://lizburr.com Liz

      This is why we offer the extended edit and the regular episode. Not everyone wants to hear the guys talk at length about their answers (extended cut is 20 minutes), while others like the shorter version. Our internal data on episode performance suggests both types are important to audiences, just in different ways. You likely fall in the category of people who prefer the extended cut, so come back tonight at 6pm EST and you’ll see it.

      • UKJourno

        Thanks – will do!

  • http://twitter.com/AdrienneInLove Age

    This episode was better than the first, maybe because the guys seemed more comfortable, and the answers seemed more real as apposed to what they think we want to hear.

    • http://twitter.com/POWTV Birch

      :)

  • really???

    will wait for the extended version.

    • http://lizburr.com Liz

      “See” you here at 6 pm EST!
