…that’s what Your Black World would have you think. In their story about Beyonce’s announcement on last night’s VMA’s, the writer writes,
Most speculators assume that rapper Jay-Z, also Beyonce’s husband, is the father of the child.
Why and what for? Are we so conditioned to believe that (married) Black women have children with just any ol’ body that we must be careful not to state what should be the obvious? Beyonce is pregnant, she and her husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child sometime soon. There I said it. No need to speculate, assume, wonder or anything else. To state otherwise is disrespectful and an insult to Beyonce, Jay-Z and married couples everywhere who do exactly what we’ve been begging black folks to do for the last few decades. Fall in love, get married, have a baby and be happy.
Dr. Boyce, come get your people.
