Actually, it will take less time. Two or more people can come together in association without the need for formatlities.I understand what you are saying, but isn't putting a woman organization to take care of this problem or as you put it get their act together take time as well? Unless you are saying our men are all totally of oblivious of any sense of responsibility to help solve such a major issue in the community.
I'm not implying anyone is oblivious of anything. I'm speaking on dealing with the priorities of the here and now with the current resources at hand.
I need a roof over my head now. This doesn't prevent me from designing and planning towards building my future home.
I'm saying a woman with children has priorities that are in need of being addressed immediately.
Take care of the here and now doesn't mean to ignore the future.
It seems to me you believe women working together precludes men. It doesn't have to be that way.Black-king said:I would like to ask you why are you putting Black men and Black women as two separate different group of people? Aren't they a unit? from what I read from this thread, the women didn't just get the children on their own, men have contributed to the problems, why can't they also be part of the solution?
Given the scenario of a woman leaving a situation due to a domestic violence, it would make more sense to me that she would work with women given trauma and trust issues.
I see this as issues of practicality and likelihood. It will take less time and resources to organize with one or two other individuals than to wait on a group of people to change their values.
Another factor to take into account is that a person may not want to be involved with a given community.Black-king said:I understand what you are saying, but I am not questioning women's ability to organize as there are many women organizations everywhere. But the problem that you are talking about is family structured one. The best way to solve it is not with women organizing to take care of other women only, but this should be a community resolved problem. the Fact is our women need to get their act together as well, and stop sleeping with irresponsible men that will leave homeless with children, and that also my friend is going to take time.
What happens when an individual's will conflicts with the will of the community?
How about men exercise a bit more control over their sexual energy?
