Single Black Women - Black women are amazing, smart, loving, independent and strong, yet, many of us are single. We as black women have stereotypes surrounding us more than any race I believe. Many of those stereotypes seem to play into the issue as to why we are single. There are so many astounding black women that single in America and my question is why that is so. I feel as though it is because there are fewer educated black men in America, we are notorious for our bad attitudes, and sometimes we can get too involved into our work to be held back by a black guy who would not help us, but with help from sources like Steve Harvey we can combat this issue and maybe one day get rid of this statistic....   [tags: stereotypes, college graduates]
