That doesn't seem possible when you are raising twins.  I wish the Letter Writer all the best although I agree with Christelyn's tough love approach.

Phaedra is a beautiful, well-educated woman.  I don't understand why out of the billions of men on this planet, she chose a criminal to marry and have children with.  While I have sympathy for those two gorgeous boys, I have none for her and her jailbird hubby.  I gather that she'll divorce Nida while he's in jail because I don't see what sense it would make for her to wait 8 years for him.

Great advice, Christelyn (as usual).


Even if she didn't find his CPT joke to be funny, she should have just shrugged it off and kept it moving.  Everyone tells corny jokes from time to time.  We really shouldn't read too much into that.


I don't understand her questioning whether he dated Black women because he was "derogatory" towards his mother.  What does that even mean?


She sounds as if she has deep seated issues and needs to work those out before she goes on any dating site.  I have a feeling that she has issues with men in general and not just White men.  He just happened to be the unlucky guy this time around.

@Christelyn I've heard Black men say they have a preference for lighter skinned women.  No problem.

I don't see anything wrong with simply saying that you like darker complexions.  There are tons of men who proudly proclaim that they prefer blondes or brunettes or redheads. It's really not that deep to like a certain type.

@Vivaforever How do you know that the Black woman got into a physical altercation with him?  Beyond his baseless claim, are there any witnesses?  Why didn't he call the police?  I don't believe a word he says.

@ttyl203 This was not the first time that Cumia has made anti-Black comments.  My only question is why did Sirius XM decide to fire him for this particular incident.  Maybe it was the final straw breaking the camel's back.  Will be interesting to see who replaces him.

Cumia was fired for using racist language, not for whatever that Black woman did (or did not do) to him.  Yes, I consider it a win.  Let his racist butt find another forum, which I'm sure he will.  I have no problem with racist speech being relegated to a tiny corner where racists can shout among themselves, i.e., Stormfront.  Siruis XM had the right to make a business decision and fire someone who was hurting their bottom line or who they found to be embarrassing for his racist rants.  


And while the Black woman in question is being portrayed as a fighter by Cumia, I have no reason to believe what he alleged is true.  Why didn't he call the police if she threatened to beat him up or if she actually assaulted him?  Good riddance to him.

@JanayeMc That's exactly how I felt when I read his letter.  The best course of action is to be upfront and blunt with any woman he is dating and ask her point black whether or not she really wants a Black man and if he is just her Plan B.  


Of course, we all know that there are some Black women who may only consider a non-BM if they cannot get themselves a BM.  But obviously there are scores of Black women who date and marry non-BM men because that's who makes them happy and that's who've they've fallen in love with.


The Letter Writer sounds as if he's stereotyped all Black women and is seeking some magical response from Christelyn to calm his nerves, which she cannot do since she cannot speak for all Black women.


I wish him luck though.

@jaylwo @BlueBerryPancakes Believe it or not, not every Black woman has to want a Black man.  BlueBerryPancakes has made it clear that she would not be happy with a Black man given her opinion on how Black men have treated Black women.


You must have meant to say that as a Black man you don't think she would be happy with any man because she's against Black men.  That's your opinion.  


Have you seen the vitriolic, anti-Black women videos that Black men have put up on Youtube for the entire world to see?  Why are you here on a website dedicated to Black women versus going to websites where Black men denigrate Black women?  


Go and check Black men who put down Black women.  That would be a better way to spend your time.

I am so happy that Eve is so happy. I saw a travel special where she was in Jamaica.  She was so down to earth and funny and came off as a very genuine person despite her celebrity.  


I could care less about what Black men think of her marriage. I just hope she and her hubby have a long married life.  She's a great example of a Black woman living well.

Not to be rude but it would be nice to read an article from one of the Black British women who is in a successful IRR. If over 30 percent of Black Caribbean women are married interracially, that's something to cheer. I would love to hear from one of those women. Great article though.

What I find interesting about Kim is that her initial claim to fame was a sex video with Ray J (whatever his name is).  I'm unaware of any now famous Black women whose initial introduction to the public was through a sex video.  


But since I cannot stand Kanye, not going to waste anymore time on him or Kim.

What do they say about a hit dog and hollering? Common sense would tell BW that dating out must be an option. Even if every BM wanted to marry BW, in the US there simply would not be enough BM. Many BM are simply not interested in BW. Period. Those are the facts we must live with.
