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.

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

    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.

    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.

    @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.

    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.
