Dating white collar men
Meanwhile, 1.3 trillion dollars in outstanding student loans are on the books – much of which will never be repaid..
And now we see the latest casualty – legions of college educated women who might have to settle for a skilled tradesman. This attached video concerns itself The Color of Collars, and the inevitable bias that follows our insistence on promoting one form of education at the expense of all the others.
At mikerow WORKS, we try to highlight successful tradespeople who have not only prospered without a college degree, but have gone on to start their own businesses and created countless jobs.
This headline confirms the misconception that tradesmen are in some way subordinate to white collar professionals.
We see these images so often that when we see our brothers breaking those stereotypes it is almost compulsory that we applaud them and we shower them with plaudits.
However, an effect of this is that some of our college-educated brothers have forgotten that their college-educated sisters are prizes as well.
College educated black men have been told time and time again that they are a rarity, a downright anomaly in our communities. Having a college education is a wonderful thing but it is a piece of the puzzle.
This harkens back to a scene from the first episode of this season of “Being Mary Jane”.
Then, imagine the fallout if The Post concluded – in their headline no less – that more white women should consider “dating down” to achieve the same level of happiness?Mary Jane was talking to her brother, PJ, about her ex, David, and his “bitchmade” ways.During the conversation PJ dropped a jewel that had me in my living room giving him a standing ovation.Time and time again we are bombarded by negative and oftentimes distorted images of our black men like the falsehood that there are more black men in jail than there are in colleges or universities.It is also drilled into our heads that black women outnumber black men on the campuses of colleges and universities.
