“Black Women Need to Learn to “Submit” to their Men”


That’s what Mo’Nique said on her show, as she went into what women need to do in order to keep a man happy in a relationship. Mo’Nique and her guests seem to think that black women work too hard to take control in their relationships.

Her disposition seems to imply that black women have been taught to be too independent and this leads to the breakdown of their relationships. This is not only the case with black women but all women of different races as well.

She actually says that black women “ sit down” (in the bathroom) for a reason and that men “stand up” for a reason.  Obviously, this rhetoric may not sit well with many black women, but some of you may wonder if Mo’Nique has a point.

On the Mo’Nique’s show which airs on BET, a couple provides an interesting perspective on black women being subservient to their men. That’s all well and good, if a women is subservient to the right man, who’ll respect her modesty in order to submit to such a will.

  3. Yes women are independent because they have been taught to work hard and take of yourself (not all women) but those who value their independency have.

  5. Maybe in an ideal world the black woman might submit to the black man, if she respects him enough and he’s worthy of it.

  6. Don’t start talkin shit ladies, submission is for a husband not a boyfriend! let’s not get shit twisted…you submit to a man when you’re in a committed relationship and he respects your mind, body and opinion. outside of that you would be selling yourselves short!

  10. Black women cannot be expected to submit to their men *until* our men can show us that they are ready to take their rightful places, in our homes, in society, in their communities as the *man* with all that being a real man entails.

    1. Really MoNique?
      I believe in letting “a man be a man” to an extent. But her statement proves she is no role model and apparently not qualified to speak for any of us!

  15. No offense, some of you ladies here take it a little to far. Submitting to your man doesn’t mean you have to be his slave. All she is saying is that you cant really be the boss and expect to keep a man. Men are natural leaders and we need a women who can sometimes just follow our lead. ima give yall an analogy right now cause i jus scrolled up again n read some of yall shit n some of you bitches is jus plain stupid, and actually think your relationship will work 50/50(it can but most likely it wont), its like yall wan stand up on the same pedestal where men stand. you have your own place. anyways my analogy involves batman n robin> think of your relationship as batman n robin . Now ladies, there can only be one batman in this relationship, and its not you. stop tryna be batman, your man is batman. you can be robin, batgirl, the joker, it dont matter>>>> my point is for this relationship to work robin(you ladies) must sometimes submit to batman and follow his lead okay. its as simple as that> it doesnt make you any less of a women to submit to a man, its natural actually, stop twisting the word submit in your head as a weak think, theres nothing weak about submitting, know your role ladies n stop tryna compete with batman ight.

  16. Monique is a loud-mouthed, overemphasizing baffoon. Those jokers she had on her show are swingers too. They are all making a mockery of marriage and have no credibility…Period. And I’m not going to comment on the submission piece because there will never be a concensus on that but I will say (and no disrespect to anyone) that I’ve read the comments on this thread and I don’t agree with “street knowledge.” Stay loved ppl!
