Everything your mother didn’t have time to tell you because she was too busy struggling! Ah…I remember the movie, School Daze. Spike Lee did an excellent job displaying the dynamics of colorism between sororities and how fraternities used their position to exploit black women. Many black women of my generation have gone there, and still many came after.
But many of us learned that the reality was a lot different than what we saw on the screen. And while the very nature of these universities centers around race, the challenges have nothing to do with it. The challenges come not from the focus on race, but of the abysmal ratios. Yes; six black women to every ONE black man. For young black female students who aspire for both a degree and potentially a good marriage match will most likely leave with a degree and an extremely skewed mindset about dating and marriage dynamics in the black community.
What is really needed is for young black women to have insider knowledge of how society and networks move, and how to take advantage of it. Finally, young black women will have ALL the knowledge to lead them to success.

Posted June 18, p. EDT Updated June 19, a. In what has become an off-season tradition, I’ve started my Twitter Mailbag where I’ll take your questions and do my best to answer them each week — and I’ll try to continue it for as long as the sports hiatus lasts. I will answer both Ryan’s question here and Mark’s, who asked me how long it will take the players to violate the rule of no doubles ping-pong.
I will answer Mark’s question first because it is the easiest answer — I do not think that they will violate that rule because I cannot think of a single thing enjoyable about playing doubles ping-pong. And I am a small, short person who has way more room at my side of the table than an NBA player does. I don’t understand the very concept of doubles ping-pong, and I reject the idea that it would be desirable in any way.
Now, would I go to Orlando? From what I can tell, you’d have to spend three months away from your family, on site at some hotel not the one the players are staying at, by the way. Three months is a loooooong time. I have an almost 4-year-old, and a husband who is a pharmacist and was already working long, hard days before this became a thing. But his family is in Orlando. I’m unclear on all the rules for media members, but my assumption is that if they’re not saying Disney employees aren’t allowed to leave the bubble, they’re not restricting the movements of media people.
So in theory, I could bring my son with me to Orlando so he could stay with his grandparents, not pay for three months of childcare and still get to see him when I have some downtime — even if it’s a socially-distant visit.

If dating were a movie, it would be like the film Inception, or Prestige, or Trance or Double Jeopardy or some other really big film that has 5-star plot twist, but is not really understandable. And a really good show. What does this mean? In most cases, it means young men and young women are experiencing a new environment different from high school, and are adjusting to more freedom.
For guys, they prioritize: having fun, being free of obligation, and exploring new things.
