It’s time for the “educated” Black women to understand that getting an degree does not prep us for being a wife. I watched one of the videos centered around some educated Black women as they professed that they have done everything right but are still single. Looking through feminists binoculars they have done everything right especially with having established careers, but in Reality, they’re lacking. They went on to say that the reason they a…re not married is because there are simply more Black women than Black men in America. Well if this is the case, what is stopping the “educated” Black woman, that has moved in the middle class if not higher from traveling abroad? There are Black men all over the world so how is it that their main excuses are that it’s too many Black men are in jail and that we outnumber them? Have we become too materialistic in chasing after the “finer” things? Do we ever stop to think that we are not being ‘wifed’ because we are lacking the qualities of one. During this video, I didn’t hear one woman mention any feminine qualities of being a woman or wife, such as, how they would love to have warm home-cooked meals prepared for their families or that they wanted their husband to lead them, etc. Having a higher level education is good and can be resourceful in the rearing of our children and the strengthening of our families. But a degree should never be what “makes” us.
Too many Black women get an education and want to wear the pants. When we do get in a relationship, our independent mindset tends to want to dominate. Getting a degree does not put us above men. It certainly won’t guaranteed us to get one because masculine men do NOT need a provider and certainly not an authoritarian woman…they need a wife, a nurturer, a lover, a helpmeet, someone that will turn their house into a home, someone that will respect their leadership. …Not a woman that he has to constantly battle with for the dominant position. Know your role, play your position, or you won’t have one.
