Why Are Eligible Black Men in Short Supply
Eligible Black men are short.
No, I don’t mean physically. I mean that Black women, especially women in the church just can’t get a mate. And I fear two things are going to happen if this continues. Firstly, and this is my subjective opinion, lesbianism might very well increase as women turn to each other for emotional comfort. Bad news for the Christian church despite the new concept of family being touted by many liberal theologians. I mean the thing does not perpetuate the human race, and is unnatural.
The second danger is the unequal yoking. Taken to the extreme we are seeing a deliberate decision by many successful women to just find a man to mate and get and child. Just that. No permanence, no family ethics.
So why are men short? As I look around I don’t believe that men are short. Eligible men are in short supply. So we can address the imbalance by educating our boys to become achievers, and by persuading our women to marry below their social status. You still believe that a man and a woman married to each other is the best context in which to rear children? Right?
Where are the ineligible bachelors? Two places. They are in prison. Let us rehabilitate and release them into the arms of love. Love is the best rehabilitation. The other place, the street corner watching life passing them by. Let us rescue them. Train them with employable skills, mentor them into success, and point them into the arms of love. I mean, it’s not that simple. But we have to do something or we will have a generation of loveless women, lonely women, or that tricky creature who is adept at stealing love. You know, bread eaten in secret and all that.
Yes people we will have to arrange some marriages soon or the Black race will become a herd of coke heads and gangsters hopping into the beds of overfed concubines. Just listen to the rap music or the dance hall DJs and scream in terror at what they glorify.
Then pray, really pray, that the Black man in the Diaspora will find himself. For when he does he will find himself a woman and call her his wife.
