I too would not mind a wombman's perspective but I can state that it is not "doing better" to be higher educated and out of the prison system unless we are measured by the euros' standards.
How are we doing spiritually?
How are we doing morally?
What is our relationship with Nature/Family/Self which is the source of our healing and growth?
I look towards those qualities when I measure wellness or not.
In my opinion, the black woman is being destroyed by a different bullet with a higher probationary AND participatory status in Western society which depowers the black male/father...not that it is the black woman's fault. It is rather a tool used in the agenda of the controllers to eliminate the black male from competition and diminish and value/potency/credibility.
BTW, that is why it is mandated that Oprah NOT marry her mate. The richest black female in the world's price is that a black man is not to be affirmed on his "rightful throne". It is a form of social eunuch-ism/castration.
You have "well-to-do" black females who are bombarded with the aspects of "independence". (meaning they are self-sufficient in society without the black male)
And then you have "welfare" black females who are still independent from the black male because of aid from the government.
Either way, eliminating the need for the black male except for sperm contribution.
That leaves jails, streets and morgues...
