One of the more reoccurring relationship questions black men, in particular, ask– or the one I see most online–are around why a woman doesn’t want them.

Well not exactly a question. He will never come right out and ask that. That would require a bit of vulnerability and less ego. But instead, we hear and read stuff like: “Black women are gold diggers and only want ballers,” or “Black women only want thugs and to be on welfare.” I think you get what I’m saying…

So in the interest of helping the brothers figure it out, I comprised a list of very valid reasons why the much quoted 70 percent of black mothers and 40 percent of professional black women (or whatever shape-shifting percentage is being thrown around this week) would rather stay single than to hook up with you.

Yes clench those teeth and hold onto your seats, because this post is gonna hurt a bit…
