Loni Love Has A Theory About Why ‘So Many Black Women Are Single’ And Now Twitter Is At War

It all started with Ciara’s #LevelUp post…

Published January 23, 2018

Ciara recently infuriated women across social media when she seemed to initially insinuate that they needed to "level up" in order to become "wife material." 

Her comments seemed to spark a flame under The Real co-host Loni Love, who took the time during a recent episode of the morning talk show to share her theory as to why "so many Black women are single."

The comedian told the audience and viewers that she believes that, as so many Black men are incarcerated, the dating pool for Black women is that much more concentrated, not giving them many options.

"Let's tell the truth about why... I'm saying in the African-American community, why there is a shortage pool of available men," she said. "Why? Because of over-incarceration."

She expounded on her point, adding that the "root of the problem" lies in Black men who were jailed not being able to land a job.

"If those men are getting overly arrested, they can't get a job then that pool is short, limited," she continued. "So, we have to fix the root [of the] problem. The root [of the] problem is, 'Why aren't there enough available men so that women can't get married?'"

Take a look at the clip below:
