Monica, a fair point for the first half of the 1900′s, but the 60′s were fifty years ago now. Figuring a generation is 20 to 25 years, that covers todays black woman in her 20′s along with her mother and grandmother. My key point is that young black women are choosing to stay single due to the female social independence they grew up with in their own families as much as any other reason. I think it was wrong of the author to say that black women aren’t valued because of their low correlation request on dating and relationships sites. Dating sites are far too narrow of a social slice to extend to so much of the single black female population.
