BLACK LOVE IN REAL LOVE: sueZette’s Top 10 Black Couples of All TimePublished by on Tuesday, May 18, 2010 at 9:59 am.
I won’t deny that there is a breakdown in familial structure in our community that needs to be mended; it is unfortunate however that the media rarely discusses successful Black relationships. If we allowed the mainstream to define what Black love looked like you’d think that it didn’t exist.
While Barack Obama’s presidential campaign changed the face of politics in our country, it also served as a very powerful and public reminder that Black love is alive and well. Barack and Michelle Obama’s deep love and respect for each other is not only beautiful, it has reaffirmed for all of us that it is possible. When that MAN looks at HIS WOMAN, there is no question that he is hers and that she is his. In the age of she’s got her own vs. all men are dogs…it has been simply refreshing to watch the gentle caresses, tender embraces, and whispers of “I love you. “
