WASHINGTON WATCH: New Study Finds Black Women Are Doing Just Fine Contrary To Popular Belief

03/12/2012 8:43 am 3 comments

March is Women’s History Month, a time to look at the many contributions women have made throughout history.  But lately, there have been a number of studies examining the lives of Black women, from their body sizes in comparison to White women to assessing that they’re more likely to get swept up in a tsunami than to get married.  The latest survey comes from “The Washington Post” and the Kaiser Family Foundation and, surprisingly, they found that, contrary to popular belief, Black women are doing just fine.

Krissah Thompson, National Staff Writer for “The Washington Post”; Rahiel Tesfamariam, founder of urbancusp.com; and Howard University professor, Dr. Tricia Bent-Goodley joined Roland Martin on Washington Watch to talk about why this new survey.

    Franklin Graham and ANY believer in Christ has EVERY right, indeed an OBLIGATION to question the President’s Christianity. The question is not ‘where’s the beef,’ but where is the EVIDENCE?! Where’s the fruit of the Holy Spirit??

    Its clear to me that after reviewing Michelle Robinson-obama Bio that she was a member of the Daley crew. I mean she apart of the most politically corrupt family in this country (The Daley’s). Once a member of the Daley’s always a member of the Daley’s gang. Look at all the positions she had from harvard law school and the salaries she recieved. Involved with Americorp to funnel money. Worked at U of Chicago along with her husband. Involved with an intern when she was a member of sibley & austin’s managerment. Check out her families estate holdings.

    Not one person on this panel articulated anything about Obamas policies pro or con that would lead them to re elect him other than the fact he’s black. And like most of black people, Tatyana blames congress as to why Obama is not doing his job well.
    How about Obama just doesn’t know what’s he doing and blames everyone else for it. Same way we black people blame Bush to defend Obama for the trillion dollar debt he’s directed this country into. So much for Hope and change. People are hopeless and don’t like the change.
