alright, lets say the title of the post is true, so what? is it now somehow bad that black women are excelling in the world? isnt that what progressives want, at least according to their rhetoric? why is the OP making this sound like a bad thing?

The OP isn't making it sound like it's a bad thing. I think the OP is saying some folks minds will be blown to hear this.

But the premise is false because black women are not the most educated group in the country.

I donít love colorizing every post on CDF
It would be more accurate to say that women have moved forward in education and leadership
This unfortunately has been done in tandem with neglect of male achievement and progress
Minimizing the long term effect of this pattern will not diminish the damage we are now witnessing unfold

Anyway, black women are not the most educated group in the USA but you can think so if you want.

He isnt, and I think you knew that before you posted that since you make the same type of post when attacking the left.

Black women, even when getting an education, are the least desired in the workplace and all throughout society, as I have been told repeatedly. So really, the majority of black women will never have enough money to pay for an education because we are the least wanted. And as several have already mentioned here, we are not the most educated group. You don't say.

People really hate to read anything positive about black women. Why not just say "good for them" and keep it moving? Why all of the negative comments?

Most journalists aren't capable of basic math-and have an agenda to push anyway.

Having said that-I hope that these educated women are successful, get ahead and stay away from deadbeat sperm donors.

Wait, negative comments about false information? Are you suggesting people NOT point out the inaccuracy of what's being posted and just praise black women anyway?

Do you really think black women are so damn stupid they need to be praised for things they haven't accomplished?

Aren't you a black woman? Why would you promote such a thing?

Considering the historical and current inequality in a variety of things like education for minorities and women, if someone presents information that they are now doing better than they really are it is frankly a disservice to them.
