Promoting Positive Black Images on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

April 27, 2016 by The ReadyWriter


5317677ccbdd3054228c87ef835dd0a5I’m going to keep it real by stating; there are many negative images of dysfunctional relationships in the breakdown of the black family unit. Especially images of healthy relationships of love and marriage amongst black men and women in today’s society. There are more single black woman as heads of households then ever before, as society depicts lack of commitment as a reality for black men.

With the growing number of shows like Empire, Scandal and the negative influences of reality television; positive black images has lost its luster since the days of “A Different World”, “Family Matters” and “The Cosby show”. Let’s face it, gone are the days of The Brady Bunch images on television.

Fed up with the pervasive negative images of black marriage in the media, Ronnie and Lamar Tyler started one of the largest independent African American marriage and parenting sites on the web to combat the negativity of black love and marriage in the media, by focusing on positive messages about marriage.

Ronnie%20Tyler%201Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” for my special guest Mrs. Ronnie Tyler (pictured left), founder of “Black and Married with Kids: A Positive Image of Black Marriage“. As we discuss she and her husbands campaign for promoting love and positive images in a black family unit.

Follow the “Conversations link” in this post to access the show.

See you on the air but in the meantime sound off here!

        Not that it doesn’t but it’s rare. Rare for a black man to really love and appreciate a black woman

        Yup all you gotta do is look at black men with prominent positions of wealth. They do not have black wives.

      If we got nothing else out of the show I hope you can understand that we need to create our own POSITIVE images and lifestyle and stop following the masses.

      They say Vanity died bcuz of liver or lung issues due to her heavy use of drugs back in the 90’s. A lot of people was saying it was complications due to the virus. Not sure if that’s true but that’s what I heard O_o

      Men can pass aids to women quicker than a woman can give it. Prince just look like himself but some do have aids and look healthy but die quickly. 😥

      Definitely could be true, although we’ll never find out. The enquirer has broken alot of true stories. I think some fans are in denial about how he lived in private.

    All Iz know is positive images of black people have died off the tube since the 80’s and 90’s. Gone are the days of the Cosby show, family matters and the damn brady bunch. this is too true and it’s scary when you think about it. all we have are these reality shows that’s a fuckin mess. loved last night’s conversation. topic was much needed an d relevant.
