Black women are the most religious group of people in the United States. If you listen to what you see and hear on television, you easily discern that African American women have a lot to pray about. When it comes to love and relationships, black women are the most likely to be single and the most likely to catch nearly every STD in the book. They also struggle the most economically.
Some are trying to say that part of the reason STD and out-of-wedlock birthrates are on the rise is because many black women are led astray by the men in their lives. Taught by their pastors that they should only consider dating a man who goes to church, many of these women end up with the same man who is preying on the entire front row of the church, and leading more than his fair share of women astray. Author Deborrah Cooper feels strongly about this issue and in an interview with Dr. Boyce Watkins, Deborrah says that rather than just relying on spiritual leaders and false prophets to tell them what to do with their lives, black women might be better off thinking a bit more for themselves.
BlackBlueDog.com tells more:
Deborrah Cooper is the author of an interesting new book: “The Black Church: Where Women Pray and Men Prey.” Cooper has written extensively about the state of black women on the dating scene and their quest to find Mr. Right. Unfortunately for too many women, Mr. Right is actually “Mr. I Don’t Give a d**n,” leading some to wonder about the state of black love and relationships.
I met Deborrah a couple of years ago when she wrote a highly compelling article entitled, “How the Black Church Keeps Women Single and Lonely.” Deb’s article got millions of reads, which is extraordinary for a piece that is focused on a specific demographic. Even the article I wrote about her article got several hundred thousand views back when I used to do my thing for AOL Black Voices (you know, the company that was ruined by Arianna Huffington – it’s sad, but most black online media outlets are ultimately controlled by white people).
