black men vs. White Men; the Black Woman's Choice
by Cicely J.
This book is about real life situations that are plaguing the African American communities. I am far from alone when I say there are close to no single, eligible black men for our successful Nubian sisters today. More and more black women are falling for their Mr. Right in the form of blonde hair and blue eyes because Darnell, DaQuan, Tyrone, and Omar are not equipped to meet her halfway.
