“Between The Lines”: 50 Solutions To “The Black Dilemma” by: Anthony Asadullah Samad
It is time for black men and black women to call a truce. All black men are not triflin’ and all black women are not mean and evil. The dysfunction of the family that now has the new “black family” being 59% single female-headed households stems from the dysfunction of the black male-female relationship. The black community has lost its balance because the black family has lost its balance. We have to restore the black family unit where both men and women are present. Black relationships don’t have to be traditional to be balanced, but every household must be covered. Whether they are men-women, gay-lesbian, man-sharing, women-sharing, whatever they are, black men and women cannot raise a community distrusting/fighting each other.
