Last week, the widely viewed video titled “Black Marriage Negotiations” hit the Web sparking debate between Black women and men on the state of marriage and relationships. The three-minute animated clip shows a Black professional woman opposite a Black professional man in a boardroom negotiating marriage with the Black woman’s demands shown as largely unreasonable and harsh. Now another animated video claps back at the representation of Black professional women, showing a commitment-phobic Black man who refuses to settle with the woman he has been with for years.

The man tells the woman, “I have a fear of commitment. My last girlfriend broke my heart and I’m still healing.” But the woman in the video slams his excuses telling him, “You cheated on her and that was in high school.” The woman goes on to remind the man how deeply they are involved with each other, despite his unwillingness to admit it. She states they have a family and they were baptized together. The voice-over for the woman continues to telling him that she’s his emergency contact on all of his work medical and legal documents, they have joint checking accounts, she talks to his mother more than he does, and his sister is doing her hair later on this evening. The female character adds how faithful she is to him, and that she has supported his dreams.

This all doesn’t sway the male character. He says to the woman, “I need to spend my time and money on petite Latin and Filipino women now.” He tells the female character, “Even though you are mixed, you are no longer exotic enough for me.”

The clips turns the comedy on high-gear after the male character quotes Chris Brown’s “Deuces” stating, “You ain’t nothing but a vulture always hoping for the worse.”

“Dating the Modern Mid-Twenties Black Man” goes on to reveal some telling intricacies regarding the state of 21st century Black female and male relationships.

    there was some truth to it because I know a lot of men that have said this. It was too funny for me. People can say it’s stereotypes all you want but it isn’t a stereotype if this is really happening.

    lmaooooo hilarious!!

  • Man..this video was made by an Ignorant & scorn black women. As one of the “GOOD BLACK, EDUCATED, AND FAITHFUL MEN,” I couldn’t Ignore this post. Might I add that, I am almost 27yrs old, NO children or Outside children, Has own house,Has own car, Pays own bills, and I have a career in progress.

    I am also one of the Black men that have dated black,white, Filipino,Korean, mixed, etc. NO MATTER WHAT RACE THEY MAY BE, women are all the same; Yes they have subtle differences but they are still the SAME. Women are like men;They are only faithful to there options and that has been proven since the beginning of time with natural selection.

    As a Man we must make the right choice to approach the right woman or girl base on what they are looking for such as long term dating, casual, or fling. If the criteria doesn’t match what we are looking for at the time then we as MEN should MAN-UP! and walk away. That shows maturity & consideration of others feelings and will definitely gain a woman’s respect then increase your own value. Who knows, maybe later in life,you might meet her again and your ready to settle down.

    The first rule my uncle told me when I started dating was that women are always the one who choose.Yes, we might approach them but at the end of day, she must make that decision to pursue a relationship with us. My uncle have been married for 50+ yrs.

    Women are the worst decision makers in history,lol….They are very indecisive. Take them to a shoe or clothing store and watch. They have an opinion about every shoe or dress except, the one that they are going to buy,lol…Good stuff! But, educated and understanding men don’t care because we have already cleared 3 days off of our calender for YOU.

    So women when you complain about men. Just remember you chose that NO GOOD and TRIFLE A$$ DOG,etc. Yes, he can mask his feelings and intentions for so long but a real educated women knows how to ask the right questions and pace the relationship. Women are so quick to date a man because of his height, skin color, eye color, and good hair,lol..then forget to analyze his mind to see if his intentions match yours.

    Relationships fail because of bad decision on both part. We are equally responsible. Men and women seek something “NEW” because they mistake lust for passion. If your relationship has passion then you adore your partner and you are dedicated to them.

    Lastly since I moved from Mississippi to AZ for college in 2005. I have dated only 2 black women that reminded me of the long-haired and dark skin beauties in MS. I do prefer black women over any other race but black women need to take care of themselves and stop saying Im I.N.D.E.P.E.N.D.E.N.T, Im thebaddest b*tch, etc. Nobody wants to wife that! It just proves that you come with predetermined problems and headaches.
