    Therre's an Old Joke that if the World were Destroyed and EVERYONE on it Parished, and somehow the Liberal Media could Report on it, the Headline in the NYT would read something like this:

    "World Destroyed, Everyone's Dead... Women and Minorities Hit Hardest"

    Well here you have yet another Victim... This time, a Victim of Success:

    Marriage eludes high-achieving black women - Sexploration - msnbc.com


    Michelle Obama may have become an archetypal African-American female success story — law career, strong marriage, happy children — but the reality is often very different for other highly educated black women.

    They face a series of challenges in navigating education, career, marriage and child-bearing, dilemmas that often leave them single and childless even when they’d prefer marriage and family, according to a research study recently presented at the American Sociological Society’s annual meeting in San Francisco.

    Yale researchers Natalie Nitsche and Hannah Brueckner argued that “marriage chances for highly educated black women have declined over time relative to white women.” Women of both races with postgraduate educations “face particularly hard choices between career and motherhood,” they said, “but especially in the absence of a reliable partner.”


    ^I Love the Segue off of Michelle, the Media's Crowned Queen.

    Anyway, Apparently even when Blacks have it Good, they still have it Bad.

    peace...

    Nice observation.

    The racial narratives in America have remained inflexible for decades... it all pretty much comes down to "whites are bad, everyone else is good."
