10 Myths About Single Black Mothers

Single Black Mother

The idiom “don’t judge a book by its cover” is rarely taken into consideration when it comes to single mothers. Most often, the assumption is that all single moms, especially those who are African American, have the same story—characters, plot line, ending, and all. And the media doesn’t do much to dispel the stereotypes that lead to these assumptions, in fact, most portrayals of ‘single black mothers’ tell the same old story.

  • Smart Brother

    The way I see it, black single baby mamas are the ones mostly responsible for the ow standards and demise of this generation’s young black men.

    With their poor choices, hoodrat sensibilities together with their funky a$$ loutish behavior, its no wonder none of those creatures are marriage material!

  • OMG!! Here we go

    Well “so called smart brother” if you must no the reason us black woman you called “creatures” are not married is because most of “YOU“ “So called smart brothers” are on the down low, gay, deadbeats, cheaters, broke or just dumb. And this message is not for all black men just azzholes like you who like to play the blame game. Black woman have been treated bad by black men for so long that they started treating you all the way you treat them. If you cant take it dont dish it. This world is so screwed up!!!!!

    Smart Brother stfu douchbag

  • Keep it Real

    The truth of the matter is A BLACK college educated woman is three time less likely to get pregnant than a black high school drop out. Why? Stop making excuses. The unskilled and uneducated black women is the one who is having almost all of these illegitimate kids. Y’all running around making excuses for them.

  • keema

    Smart Brother doesn’t get a response from me. I refuse to stoop to his level. Not everyone single mother is a hoodrat. Some of single mothers are college educated, hard working women. What is so sad about black men today is that they are so quick to f$#% us, and when we become pregnant with your baby you want to talk shyt. Do yourself a favor and educate yourself before you start generalizing. You sound really stupid.

  • keema

    @Keep it Real, for your information i personally know BLACK college educated women who have are single mothers. Get over yourself. You are another one talking out of a$$.

  • Keep it Real

    To azzume that you can have a productive community with 70% or more illegitimacy and no men in the home is just a LIE perpetuated by liberal progressives. This is the progressive liberal ideology ie “new familial structure” LIE that has been embedded in the cultural beliefs of the community over the last 50 years. It has never been accomplished in the history of civilization.

    Y’all want a community to achieve economical and educationally but y’all aint willing to give up on the idea that it can not be accomplished without the traditional family structure I guess when you really want to believe something you can rationalize anything.

  • keema

    No other race tears each other down like black people. And you wonder why other races look down upon us???
    We don’t lift each other up and support one another no the black men are always running their mouths and judging. Listen you don’t know what people go through on an individual level so stop this judging. It’s ridiculous and petty.

  • keema

    @Keep it real…when you commitment-phobic men are ready to get married, let us women know. smh.

  • Oooh Weee!!


    Yes, the last statement iz true. Az in, those Black men who want 2 rationalize their failure 2 b strong-enough leaderz, r willing 2 believe their lack of presence n the community iz all the women’z fault.
