Black Women: When All Else Fails In Heterosexual Relationships, Become A

Did I get your attention? I’m warning those of you who are very tender and sensitive to be aware that the next few paragraphs will be no-holds barred, non-politically correct, coming from my perspective and experiences (off-line).
