Does Kanisha Have More Sex Than Tiffany?

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Simply, no. Many studies show the rate of sexual intercourse by black and white teenage girls between the ages of 14-19 is statistically insignificant.* The BIG difference is that young African-American girls get pregnant more often and keep their babies without being married. Why?

The answers are complicated.  They include social, cultural, and psychological differences.  Among these (obviously generalizing):

• The “dream map” of white, middle class girls is: finish school, get a job, meet a good guy for a big wedding, have children, and then buy a nice house. Black girls’ dreams – especially those from lower class backgrounds – are much different and not nearly as grand.

• Because their long term goals of an education and career aren’t realistically as strong as white girls,’ a pregnancy does not necessarily interfere.

• Since black people don’t live as long whites (by about 10-years,) girls are encouraged to “hurry” the child process along – often by mothers and grandmothers who want to see their offspring.

• No girl wants to marry a guy who is uneducated, unemployed, and may spend years being incarcerated.  Black girls have a much smaller husband pool.

The list goes on and is even more complicated.  But when people like Maury Povitch and Bill Cosby say, “just cross your legs,” their advice sounds naive and stupid. It’s like telling overweight people to “just eat less” without understanding how they got fat in the first place.

Hundreds of years later, America is still paying the price of slavery.  It’s like future generations of your children paying off the huge national debt WE created.  Of course it’s not fair.

Like Sardines in a Can I know you know why so many sardines are squished into a flat can: the fish are cheaper than the oil used to pack them. You knew that, right? Of course – but what kind of fish are sardines? Are there schools of sardines swimming around the oceans – especially in the Mediterranean next to Sardinia where they got their name?

Well, yes and no. You see, lots of fish can be sardines. There’s really no official species that qualifies – until it gets close to the can. Sardines can be herrings, round herrings, pilchards, sprats and many other kinds of fish. The only defining characteristic of sardines is size -they must be under 4-inches. That’s it.

I hate it when things are defined only by size.
