Good read. Banks makes some interesting points that are not only true from his personal experiences but is also backed by science. I appreciate that. His take-home message is that Black women should date outside their race instead of settling for a relationship with Black men who are overwhelmed by their options and as a result, engage in multiple relationships. He doesn't merely present a solution, but he also addresses the obstacles that stand in the way of these solutions. With concrete examples and statistics, Banks has presented a viable solution to a complex problem. I was a little thrown off by the title, but I am glad that I gave the book a fair chance.
