That’s it for my flashy intro, now to THE RAW FACTS. Rachel Lindsay, the first black female to participate, broke down in tears.In general, men responded to women about three times as often as women responded to men. All men except Asians preferred Asian women, while all except black women preferred white men.And both black men and black women got the lowest response rates for their respective genders.Answer: No, I don’t think all white men feel that way about Black women.However, media images and the lack of interracial socializing have led to a situation where the distinct minority of white men can say that they truly know a Black woman.
Question: Do all white men think all Black women are hoochie mama, welfare, child bearing, uneducated b******?

So, it’s the first of the month of February and you know what means don’t you? But anyway…Then, this morning while looking through my e-mail, I was asked to view a new music video by new Femme C (female lyricist) Brianna Perry called of all things, “Marilyn Monroe.” In the video, the black female rapper has long a long blonde lace front, and in a few scenes has a fake Marilyn Monroe beauty mark above her lip and by her cheek. She was a beautiful woman who I’m sure brought a lot of light and joy to people’s lives and maybe even taught folks to be comfortable with their curves. However, I don’t understand why so many black women seem to be enamored with her days. But psych my mind, because so many celebrities get dressed up like her on the cover of magazines and in music videos to try to emulate her sex appeal and aura (I’ve seen Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez don the same wig that looks like Monroe’s hair in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”), buy portraits of her face and shout her out in their tracks.
As Jasmine Holmes writes about being black and single, “I still find myself looking back and wishing that my white friends knew—or at least admitted—some of the unique struggles that I had to face and that I still watch so many of my [black] sisters in Christ face every day.” The church has both a crisis and an opportunity on its hands.
With that in mind, how can we as local church communities help to heal the broken identities of our black sisters, especially in the realm of relationships?
