In this time in America, many feel a war is being waged against the African American community and specifically Black men. During this taping of Ask a Black Man LA, we asked our panel to discuss the current status of Black men in america, if they feel like they’re at an advantage or a disadvantage because of their skin color, and whether they think their standing will improve any time soon. Watch what they had to say.
For as many discussions are had about the advancement of Black women and the ways in which Black men lag behind in some areas, little effort is put into finding solutions to even the social standing or even ask Black men what’s contributed to their status and what they’re doing about it.
We decided it was time to do that, so we asked Black men about the theories of dating up to get ahead and Black women dating down to get a partner, and whether Black men and Black women will ever be in the same socioeconomic place across the board. Watch this episode of Ask a Black Man LA and see what they had to say.
Marriage isn’t necessarily at the top of most Americans’ priority list these days, but are Black men less or more marriage-minded than other men? We asked this group of fellas that question in this this episode of Ask a Black Man LA, see what they had to say abut marriage being a necessity and the (false) idea Black men are more inclined to marry a white woman than a Black woman.
If you’re a Black woman of dating age on planet Earth, we guarantee you’ve been told at least once or twice in your life to relax your standards a bit, date a man who’s a work in progress, help build a brotha up…
Well, on the other side of those statements is the implication that men are lagging behind, they’re not up to par, and it’s women’s responsibility to reach back and pull them up to their level. Is that fair? Better yet, is that even true?
We asked the fellas of Ask a Black Man LA about this, questioning whether Black women really have decent options on the dating scene or if it’s true they have to date down in order to find a man. Hear what they had to say.
Cheating will forever be one of the great relationship mysteries. For most people, the solution to avoiding cheating is simple: just leave the relationship. But when cheating isn’t necessary about wanting to be with someone else, what does it mean? Is the issue with the cheater? Is the cheater’s partner the problem? And, most importantly, if someone cheats should you automatically leave?
Watch the cast of Ask a Black Man LA discuss all of those questions and more in the episode above.
When you ask a question like “What do all men want in bed?” you’re basically asking for trouble — or a bunch of NSFW TMI answers that only that man and his woman need to know. But, thankfully, that’s not what we got when we asked our Ask a Black Man LA cohort about their sexual preferences. In fact, the most important thing these men say they get out of sex isn’t an orgasm — though they definitely appreciate those — it’s a feeling of validation and desire that’s only achieved in the bedroom. Listen to what they had to say about seeking validation through sex and more in the video above.
These days, society runs on sex, which means a lot of our relationships tend to as well. It’s for that reason that some men don’t even believe monogamy is possible. But what about the other side of that coin: male celibacy? Is that just as outlandish? Is men’s incessant need for sex really biological or is it all in their minds? Check out what this group of fellas from the west coast had to say in episode 3 of Ask A Black Man LA and share your own thoughts in the comments section.
In Monday’s episode of Ask a Black Man LA, we asked the fellas whether all women are crazy (or men make them that way)? This week we turned the question around on the guys and asked them straight up, what about y’all? Don’t all men have a little cray cray in them too when it comes to women and relationships? Of course, no man is really going to answer yes to that question, but the men did give some insight into insecurities and how those manifest themselves in relationships, especially when it comes to saying the l-word. Check out the convo and tell us what you think.
Ask a Black Man is back and, as we told you, we took our questions to the west coast this time around to find out what Black men in Los Angeles have to say about love, dating, marriage, sex, and more — like the idea all women are “crazy.”
Yup, we know you’ve either seen a meme, read an article, or heard straight from the horses mouth “women are crazy,” but is that just the sound of a bitter, triffling man, or do all women really have a crazy eye? Are there levels to the crazy? And what about men? Are they crazy too? Watch and see what the fellas had to say on episode 1 of Ask a Black Man Season 3 and join in our live chat on the topic happening now using the hashtag #AskABlackMan.
