Before everyone gets to mingle, three of the men meet with Iyanla to talk about why they avoid dating within their race.
When observing the condition of our intimate interaction, African Americans are no longer interested in courting, dating or harvesting the patience essential in the process of selecting the appropriate partner for our lives.
More so now than ever, it has become more common to see a Black man with a white woman (or non-African American) on his arm.
Though black women are no longer sitting around waiting on her black savior to come to his senses, as they have also begun testing the waters of alternative nationalities, the reasons as to why successful black men are not choosing black women once they reached the top remains a mystery.
They like to place that strong personality on you, and sometimes, you just kind of like, you know, 'Stay in a woman's place.'" Speaking with Iyanla, all three men dig deeper into how these preferences formed.
Bo says that he learned from his mother to avoid "angry" women.
