by watching TV, you'd think the only successful black men in Atlanta were rappers or athletes

Who says that? Have I said that? First of all, I don't read Terry McMillan books bc I can't stand them and I don't join in on "black male bashing" when I can join in on empowering black men. I don't sit around and have chats about "how sorry black men are," because it's a WASTE of time and I don't think they are all sorry at all. Ain't nothing better than an educated, ambitious, black man and for those reasons I CHOSE not to date outside of my race. I'm far too confident to worry about sorry men. There are some, but I don't focus on them. I pay attention to those that are trying to do for themselves. Period. So save your narrow minded, generalized, ignorant statements for those it applies to brotha, because it ain't me...lol. I have been hurt sooo many times just like any other woman, but I use those as lessons and not reasons to be bitter. Hence why I LUV my life now...you need to get a grip brotha, bc apprently you've been burnt and can't repair the wounds...

If women only see $$$$ and titles, well a lot of men only see a$$ and t1tties. Oh well, sucks but that's life... men get judged on success and women get judged on looks. Nobody likes to admit it but that's just how it is.

If a man is looking for somebody to sleep with then sure. But I would go out on a limb and bet that most men - ESPECIALLY "successful" men - looking for a long term relationship consider much more than looks when looking for a woman.

Personally, I'm over looks. Though I've noticed an interesting phenomenon where marginally-attractive women like to blame their lack of success with men on men being caught up on looks when the reality is that they just aren't that interesting.
