Black Men Need A Safe Place To Be Angry

The Power Struggle

A Common Issue Between Black Men & Black Women

The Power Struggle

Hey, my name is Arielle. I am the founder of - a dating app which aims to connect serious, marriage-minded black singles worldwide.
I created the Straight Black Blog to share stories and issues pertaining to the black community, black relationships and healing. 

If you'd like to contribute to the blog please get in contact - always happy to have guest bloggers!

So today I came across a post with a photo caption entitled “Stop Slandering Straight Black Men“.
Straight away I thought that this title would attract a lot of attention… from two types of people.
1. The type who are outraged that somebody would come to the defence of straight black men.
2. The type who love and support straight black men… both types of people would be sure to read on to see what the poster had to say 😅

You both had a blast on your last date that lasted for hours, you both told  each other all kinds of fun stories about the past and laughed your hearts out; you really hit it off with this one. So it seemed…

The late great baseball legend Jackie Robinson once quoted an old but a truthful saying that
‘behind every successful man there is usually a woman who deserves more credit for his successes’

Whatever amount of credit due, it’s rarely given to such deserving women. This wise saying holds across the board from politics to popular culture, and especially in the black community there are a ton of iconic figures who achieve the king status attributed to their ability to tap into the divine black feminine energy of their spouses, they were able to acquire great heights of success by being consciously aware of the power of the divine black feminine energy and its significant role in achievement of their black man’s wildest dream.

“I wasted five years hurting a good black queen by passively staying with her but never choosing her fully.”

What is worst than being single (for the person who doesn’t want to be single)?

Being with someone who makes you feel single…

To her I bet it feels like a slow torturous death; if you are absent when times get tough and then leave her be – she deserves a man who is always present especially when the going gets tough.

As a man it doesn’t feel right to string a black queen’s heart along knowing deep in your heart you have no intention to choose her and be there when she needs you the most. A good black woman deserves a man who will love her unconditionally and that person is out there, it is clearly not you, you are just in her way to true happiness and love.

You can’t be in a relationship and be choosy of the moments you want to be in her life, it’s not optional or even practical.
If she has made up her mind to fully commit to you and be loyal to only you, it’s high time you reciprocate the commitment mutually.

“You learn a lot about people when you listen to the songs that mean something to them” – Anonymous

Being a solid prolific and cultic follower/lover of the diverse African heritage music arts, in the black community worldwide I am automatically predisposed to pay keen attention to all types of music genres ranging from, afro-beats/fusion, Jamaican dancehall, UK grime & rap, American hip-hop and any subgenre in between both in the underground scene and the mainstream.

In the current diverse era of popular music, and the Internet’s instant gratification of viral fame it’s hard to miss the message being passed on by our young blood, while most of it may be true half of it is fabrication to satisfy the unfortunate self distorted image of how it feels to be black, because in reality not all black people pop opioid pills, or mix lean (codeine) in their soda for leisure, sell narcotics for a living or have a ton pile of assault rifles laying around their homes  as constantly depicted by the so call mumble generation of rappers.


Well, no, it’s not..

But why do you need a black dating site?

Online dating has evolved immensely and we have a niche for everything you can imagine! You can find dating sites for men who like big women, interracial dating sites, black women and white men only, Asian only, Jewish only, Lesbians only and the list goes on and nobody has any issues with these – there are even sites for people who wish to have affairs and people with STDs!

One thing we have managed to maintain in our ever-changing world is our freedom to have preferences in who we date. They say you cannot help who you fall in love with…however, you can help who you choose to date and give your time and energy to.

For many people their partner is a reflection of them and when it comes to marriage and commitment most people tend to stay close to home with regards to religion and culture and in doing so tend to have better rates of success. In the world of online dating we have more choice than ever before but what happens when you are not your preference’s preference!?

One of the challenges posed by online dating (or let’s face it…dating in general) is are they who they say they are? He or she could be married, could have children they haven’t mentioned, could have a scary record they haven’t disclosed and information they dare not share on their dating profile.


People, you must always look past your initial attraction to the person you are talking to online and do your due diligence. We are constantly trying to find ways to make our online dating platform safer. The most basic thing One can do on this site is GET VERIFIED. It is very easy to verify your online dating profile… All that is required is for them to copy the gesture in the image to prove they are the same person in the photo.


Nobody likes a catfish! If they cannot do that ladies and gentlemen … leave it where it stands. Or, if you really like them and they claim to be serious…
