PSA from a Bossip Reader to Steve Harvey: STFU, You are Ruining My Chances of Getting Married!!!

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bossip Exclusives, For Discussion, News

After watching the ABC News Special on Why So Many Successful Black Women are Single???, one of our Bossip readers, Christopher Johnson, wrote us an email expressing his thoughts on what Steve Harvey said on behalf of black men.

Steve Harvey: Men my age have made a mistake, in that we didn’t teach the generation behind us the principles of man hood. There are so many African American men missing, absent, in the family… You [women] have a biological clock, we [men] don’t.

Christopher Johnson seems to be a pretty cool guy building a foundation. How many of you agree with Chris??? Was Steve Harvey wrong for what he said??? Do you feel that is giving black men a pass to not have their sh*zz together???

Discuss…

  • Kigali- I will check you

    Steve Harvery said he grew up in the projects. In all likelihood there were probably no fathers around. Cant live in project housing if you have a man.

    Steve has a demographic that he has to cater to. Anytime he tells the truth, he loses his largely single and female audience.

    I wonder how many black females Steve Harvey’s that he thinks is marriage material. Not many I am sure.

  • Royal Chocolate

    Please!! Steve is divorced and remarried…what could he possibly tell anyone about relationships?

  • David

    I really can’t comment on what Steve said on ABC but I can comment on his radio show. I can not even stand to listen to his show more than 5 minutes because he destroys the english language. His grammar is absolutely horrible. Before he tries to tell the young people to do the right thing he should do the right thing by improving his grammar. If he wants to be a role model for the youth I think that it’s important for him to work on his broken english.

    Steve Harvery said he grew up in the projects.
    *******************************

    When did he say that? In any event he said just the other day that he was fortunate to have had a father that was there to raise him and teach him how to be a man.

  • cruzan trini

    Okay, so he missed me half way through this, I got so tired of listening to him. Why….

    He needs to sit down and shut up. Is he marrying or engaged to anyone? He is just like the rest of the men out there. So what he is a good catch, but just like most brothers he hasn’t put a ring on it. Brothers act like getting married is the end to everything.

  • Kigali- I will check you

    @ebonielady,

    The only problem with what you are saying is that you assume that there are women out there who know how to treat a man. You dont know that these men dont know how to treat a lady. These men, considering the kinds of chicks we have walking around, have probably never met a lady worthy of his respect.

    There are some very piggish chicks out there and dont assume that if you arent being treated right, the problem is with the man. Men dont have a problem with respecting women. Aint too many women out there though. Just the booty shakers and the baby mamas.

  • YorkieLover

    Yeah STFU Steve!!! GO CHRIS!!!!!!

    Black people should raise the standards for black boys and men…

  • Kigali- I will check you

    @Mrs Rance,

    He said that during the King of Comedy. Was he lying? Aint too many fathers/husbands in project housing. That should explain the crime and destitution.

    Well great. His father raised him and taught him how to be a man but every father lets his sons know that there are some chicks out there who dont deserve a pat on the head. They happen to dominate in our community.

  • B.W.W.

    marriage is not for everyone. people need to be real with themselves about that. on the other hand, people who are marriage material need to stop f*cking around with people who they have to lower their standards to be with.

  • RJ

    Steve Harvey is correct, it seems as if our parents and their parents generation completely abandon their responsibilities as men and now we have a new generation of men who don’t know how to be men and treat a women,etc. But I do agree that there should be men in place to teach black men how to be men and not selfish, fearful little boys.

  • J

    All I can say is there are a lot of black males who are starting to act like females and whine SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much and are wanting a woman to take care of them like their mamas…work, come home and cook his food, pick up his damn clothes, wash his clothes, put them mugs up, and some want you to pick them out in the morning. All that is fine…but that foo betta be doin a hell of a job payin bills n doin what I NEED him to do when I NEED him to do it dammit. Why we always gotta be expected to do backflips and jump up and land by doin the splits?

  • c-lo goodie

    I’m on team Steve Harvey and he is supposed to be starting a mentoring program . I agree that standards need to be raised for our men, but only the men can do that sooo… Brothers…. STEP THAT SH*T UP AND STOP BEING WHINEY P*SSIES BLAMING THE WOMEN ALL THE DAMN TIME!!!

  • resurrected

    Welling what a man think is a man is why different then what a woman may want in a man..
    This message might not apply to this man but it does apply to many men… Your manhood is not just the ability to you as a man happy along but it serve a bigger mission anyone own selfish needs…

    Well maybe he should not also judge the black woman because she does have a choose in who she selects just as a man does…

  • resurrected

    brnhornet

    Correct but the norm is bigger in perspective then the few but the few still matter but it like finding a needle in a haystack… So many woman are messed up by the norm before they can even get to the few and it takes it toll…

  • nikki

    baby where the hell are you at?

  • Kigali- I will check you

    @J

    Likewise there are a lot of black females who said that manhood is worthless, fatherhood is worthless and having a husband is worthless and these government checks will compensate for all that. These are the results.

    Black females didnt want to play they role, they wanted to get all out of pocket and the fruits of their labor have turned sour. Now hopefully with this generation, though I doubt it, they will know how to be interdependent with men, husbands, to raise children and not be on that whole strong independent type stuff that hasnt done anything except aggrandize her.

  • Rrrrroe Ski Love- A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    TD Jakes built a whole ministry on catering to woman, because he saw an opportunity to grow his congregation in that way. Steve Harvey is piggybacking on that same philosophy of catering to woman and saying the things that they want to hear. Out of curiosity I read his book Act like a lady and think like a man. It was filled with unrealistic situations and innuendoes and steriotyped men in general. When will people realize that the real do gooders of society don’t toot their own horns and quietly go about helping others. Those tooting horns are in it for other reasons (money) Steve, Jesse, Al, TD, Creflo, Tyra, Oprah the list goes on and on.

    @ Resurrected

    True but it’s unfair to both sides. I’ve got women friends who may have met that guy for them but he doesn’t even get a chance because the women is still caught up in the drama from the past. And as for the guy, he figures that treating women the right way is getting him nowhere so he might as well become a dog because women seem to like that despite what their mouths say.
    It’s a never ending cycle and both sides are to blame. Hopefully the trend will change for the better

    ——————— Co sign, I know many men like that. they talk all day about what they want in a woman, they want the world and more but they don’t have anything to offer. No job, 6 baby moms, yet they want mother earth who can hold a baby with one hand and cook a 3 course meal with the other
