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.
