Wow, this topic never dies, does it? 

The whole approach here is wrongheaded. 

People are single for all kinds of reasons, there is no one size fits all answer to the solution. 

Why are these women single?  Father issues?  Very unattractive appearance or personality? Unwilling to compromise in a relationship?  Unrealistic expectations of a mate? Want to be alone, despite claims otherwise?  The reason may not be any of these, but these are common issues that have nothing to do with the dating pool.

Let's take race out of it.  If these women say they aren't attracted to white men, I bet there are other types of men they are not attacted to.  They may not like overweight men or short men or broke financially challenged men.  Why not tell them to consider them too? 

I'm sure Halle Berry, Stacy Dash and Garcielle Nilon would say just being with a white guy is not the magic bullet to a happy relationship. 

Falling in love is hard, staying in love even harder.  You got to know what's important and what's not.  If you find something that works, who cares about race, gender, religion...just hold on!

Reg, thats some of the wisest $#!t I've ever heard on relationships.  I'm gonna borrow that.

Well, to give Ms. King the benefit of the doubt, she might just be suggesting that woman broaden their horizons in seeking potential mates. That would be the favorable reading of her comments.

I can't believe a sell out is voicing Huey of Boondocks. I give props to all the black ladies that only want to date brothas.

It funny she say that in vibe too, since Quincy Jone own that mag......and he only date white women.

Wait, I'm confused. I only skimmed through the article, but did she say not to date black men or just to open your horizons? I don't get how she's a sell out for that? I think anyone should be free to date whoever they want.

Why?

It is not like McGruder is overflowing with love for the brothers either, if you want to get down to it.

Who was the last breathing negro that McGruder had anything good to say about? :D

This argument is as tired as the day is long.  Date who you want to.  The way I see it, if you're not next to me when I wake up, then it's none of my bidnezz.  What women haven't figured out yet is that men are men.  White, Black, Asian, Latino...we're all on a basic level the same.  She'll deal with all the same shyt, just presented in a different wrapper.
