The Spring Quarter at Strayer University started for me about two weeks ago, so I'm back on the grind as a student. This one English class, the ONE class I really need to stop fucking around in, requires me to write an argument paper...again. I'm attempting to formulate a topic and need some feedback from you guys.
I want to argue about male/female black relationships.
Lately, in conversations about having children, I've noticed many black men express the feelings of not wanting to have children, especially by women they don't love, but are going to make the best of an unfavorable situation. Some of these men harbor negative feelings toward the mother because she chose not to have an abortion.
Here's my beef: It makes no sense to me, none whatsoever, to give yourself the opportunity to create any "unfavorable" situations for yourself. The excuse of being young just doesn't cut it with me. When we come of age, there are certain things we should know, one of them being the consequenses of making babies. Youth and ignorance was a recurring theme in many of these conversations which is being used as a cruch to shuck the never ending reality that is being responsible for your actions.
I'm not sure how to develop a logical argument out of that, or even if I can. It's something that's been irritating me for the longest time and I feel it should be addressed. I'm also looking for any books or articules which discuss black relationships. I need sources to support the argument.
