    He thought he walked in to a welfare office because there were black women with kids there?! GTFOH…I just can't.

    I appreciate that he said this. Ladies please use protection. Brotha's on the DL need to be upfront and honest with who they are irregardless of the consequences. The community needs the integrity.

    Why is this on Black Love and Marriage? Totally not relevant to the site.

      I receive all of the articles on this blog every day and I've seen a wide range of topics published here that have to do with the black community. Relationships are the focus obviously but I think they cover many different aspects of the black family and black community. Black gay men are a part of the black community. So, in my humble opinion I I think this is totally relevant to the site.

        If this is relevant to the black love and marriage community, then let’s put up a link to Miley Cyrus’s twerking video. I’m sure by some stretch of the imagination, we could find as much relevance in that to the black love and marriage as we could with Lee Daniels and his gay lifestyle.
