You ever see someone who says something that is funny, but not really all that funny? That’s the way to describe the article written by a comedian who talks about what it’s like to be a single black woman in America in the year 2012. Digging into her Southern roots, she says that the loneliness of being single is not the real problem. Instead, it’s all the questions she gets from older black women who just don’t understand how love and dating have changed in the black community.
The author says that many of her relatives speculate that she dates women or that something is wrong with her because she chose to remain single. But for many women, this is a real issue, as they grapple with making the tradeoffs between marriage and career that many of us struggle with. Additionally, there are complications that come with the prison industrial complex and high black male unemployment, not giving women as many male options that are able to withstand the challenges of marriage and children.

Chloe Hilliard, a comedian, takes issue with all the people who think that every person who doesn’t have kids by the time they’re 30 must be gay. Hilliard’s point, made in jest, is a serious nuisance for millions of African American women who find themselves on the other side of the big 3-0 without having a husband or child in tow. Many of these women are liberated, educated and enjoying the single life. But some of them are haunted by questions from relatives who are “concerned” about the state of their love lives.
Frank Ocean is getting on my nerves. Not for the reason you’re thinking. I don’t care who you decide to love or sleep with. I’m frustrated because now that he has publicly clarified his s****l preference, folks are trying to predict who will be next.
