Friday Funny: What Single Women Can’t Learn from Michelle
This is a pretty good one that comes from the Root. It’s time we had a little fun with the super Black couple and how they relate to everyday folks.
Like just about everyone else last week, I read “What Single Women Can Learn From Michelle”—Jenée Desmond-Harris’ sista grrl power manifesto—with keen interest. After all, I’m just as concerned as the next guy with staying up on what “successful black women, with college degrees, ambitious careers and five-year plans” are really thinking.
