I don't think it's appropriate to base a relationship PRIMARILY on material wealth.  However, it is a consideration that should not be taken lightly.  If I should lose my corporate gig, will Mr. Blue Collar have the cheddar to continue to support us?

What do you mean by support?

Support you overall or support you in the lifestyle that you've become accustomed to?

In a way yes. sh*t happens you as a couple have to adapt to ups and downs of life. If by so chance your spouse loses a job then it is usually the case that the "lifestyle" may go down. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made. As long you have a home that has the rent or mortgage paid on time, utilities paid on time & enough food to nourish the home then you are already in good standing and "living the good life".

it should be some consideration regarding whom you are marrying, does this person have a tendency to be late on rent, car payments, credit issues. Matter of fact if I do decide and pop the question(most likely not) I would have both myself and my future spouse meet with a financial adviser and come up with a plan. Honestly I don't want to marry into an apartment. So hopefully myself and future spouse is doing want it takes to become homeowners together once the honeymoon is done.
With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

Second. A marriage is a covenant and a partnership.  Attractiveness, sexual appeal, gene pool, income, intelligence, sense of humor, morality, and many other factors are all in play.  No one should be married just for any one factor, whether is be money or sex.

hmmm I give the gent credit with his honesty with the topic. One can't discuss something like this without someone getting salty and wanting to defend themselves. But is it really a "crisis"? Why should one even care?

just to chime in real quick,  I think one of the bigger issues we have as a community is the fact that we are the only group in America who feels we are not entitled to anything.   

Every other group will step up to get theirs, ask for it, demand it, but we rarely if ever do unless it is to each other.

With that being said, I feel that many of the women who are single and looking, are alone because of themselves.   It is a myth to say that misery loves company.  Most Men do not like drama. 

Another factor one must take a look at is the dating patterns of these women.    When they were younger, were they messing with nothing but bad boys, were they the woman who were 17 messing with the 30 year old, the 22 year old messing with the 40 year old? Did they try to date the athlete in college, and ignore the cat who was grinding with 2 jobs on the side and could barely pay for his tuition?     Some woman think security first and foremost .  they don't like a man attempting to establish them selves, and many are  to impatient to allow a man to build his empire.      They prefer a man who they perceived already has everything , hence the reason why the neighborhood drug dealer got the love growing up.    Now  after that cat got locked up, the old head she was messing with has left her for a younger chick, or any number of factors she finds herself alone, wondering where all the good men went.   


 And it is not just the Sista's either,   there are a lot of single white women who have never been married, or they got married young and are now divorced, by themselves and bitter.   


the game is messed up,  singers want to be gansters, gangsters want to be rappers, and rappers want to  be actors

If there's any controversy, I assume it will be much less than Reggie Bush generated.  And half of it will be over whether she is "really" back or not, since she is afro-latina. I shouldn't sigh over presumptive stupidity, but....

I don't think there's going to be much of a controversy about Zoe Saldana. It seems that a good deal of black women who are vocal about black male-white woman relationships are less vocal about black women-white male relationships. So, I haven't heard any fuss about Saldana being on the cover and I'm not expecting to.

That is the bullsh*t hypocracy about this debate.
