Driving to work listening to the Steve Harvey morning show I find myself getting irritated. Steve Harvey wrote the book "Act like a lady, think like a man" (which I love). He talked about a new book he has coming out titled "Giving it to you straight, no chaser; How to get and keep a man". I am irritated with the fact that every self-help book is geared toward the female population. What does that say about society and how they view black women, especially when it comes to relationships? Why are some many expectations placed on the woman in relationships? They involve two people, whether it fails or succeeds is determined by BOTH people involved. Why does the general population feel it is their duty to inform black women how to get a man and keep. The problem with black women is not that they do not know how to get and keep a man; it is that they feel like it is their job to get and keep a man. Women you should not be the chaser, you should be chased! Maya Angelou says it best, "A woman hearts should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her". Ladies, if you are going to chase a man let it be "the" man (God).
