A Conversation with Jaye de Black

So there’s this wonderous place on YouTube where a growing number of black men are taking to the pulpit as it were to talk about issues in the black community, politics, and women in general.

Black women, like with everything major and minor, jumped down the creators of Shea’s throat.

On one hand, I totally understand why black women feel like they’ve been betrayed by Shea. We have a thought process that thinking that if we build something up, it will stay with us because of loyalty.

Black men become successful? They must have had the backing of the black community, and thus must stay with us. Never mind how hard it was starting them up, with our abyssal high school graduation rates, broken families, and child abuse at home. He can learn to love us through…
