@ mayfield1970 I agree with your comment in several areas....
First, I used to live in DC and I totally agree with you on the vibe there....Its nice that there are a lot of professional black folks, but ***, I have never come across more superficial negroes in my *** life as I did there.
Loyalty in general is more and more rare....And that applies to people across all races and backgrounds. The most important thing is to find someone who loves and supports you for you...And when you get into marriage, then its about someone who has your back through the good and the bad....If a man or a woman finds that, they would be a complete *** fool to throw it away for a superficial reason.
No race has the market cornered on loyalty or faithfulness....I hate the broad generalizations that people make on here, especially those about black women and men...There are loyal and supportive women of all races just like there are selfish and superficial people of all races. Derek found a woman who has stood by him both when he had nothing and later when he had it all...He is blessed for that.
