You mentioned only a small segment of black women being attracted to that type of man( i.e. Thuggish type). What percentage of black women would you say it is? It seems hard to believe it's so small when most black goodbars are either from the lower income areas or grow up in wealth(I remember you sharing that with us) and off course Goodbars are on top off the sexual pyramid because women want them the most.

It's hard to estimate percentage wise but in making that statement I take into consideration several factors and personal experience. Discussions regarding specifically Black relationships rarely take into consideration class differences. The type of Black woman truly attracted to Thugs come from an environment where Thugs are the dominant males. Contrary to media images the average Black person in this country is in the middle class range economically going from blue collar workers to professionals. Thugs are going to appeal to ratchet women. College-educated women tend to deal with college-educated men. There are few exceptions. People tend to focus on Thugs because they are visible and the ones that attract many women tend to attract sexually attractive women. The truth is that many Thugs are really in the Gamesmen category and are seen as generally non-select by the average women. Many Thugs are tricks even when they get sex.

I faced some colorism growing up but it didn't make me work any harder than I already did. Some females made it an issue some didn't. I know some other chocolate brothas that went through mess with the sistas. A big change came in the late eighties, early nineties with the rise Denzel Washington, Wesley Snipes, and Blair Underwood. Chocolate Brothas became the in thing. Now it's a mix. Idris Elba and Boris Kudjoe get the same amount of attention. It's only an issue now if you allow it to be.
