Even though Nia Long is beautiful and famous, and could, conceivably, have any man she wants, she’s still a “baby mama”. Some people are taken aback by this, and believe that Long is further diminishing the role of black husbands and fathers in American society. There is the theory that welfare was the beginning of the end, and that it rendered black men irrelevant in American households. But Nomalanga takes a different view, and believes that Long should be respected, even though she is a “baby mama”:
Nia Long is on the August cover of Essence magazine with a title that reads “Nia Long- Single, Satisfied & Raising Her Boys”. Nia Long, who shares that she is in a relationship with the father of her second son, Ime Udoka, clarifies that by “single”, she means that she is not married.
The actor and dancer has been quoted in a number of online publications as saying that marriage is not a priority for her. Of course this raised a few eye brows, especially those of her more conservative fans but she further explained that she “had never seen marriage work” which helps explain her seemingly indifferent attitude towards it.
The reason why I can respect Long boils down to one important thing she said: “I worked hard to have the career I wanted, but I’ve also been deliberate about my personal life. None of this is a mistake.”
