For those of you depressed by Soledad O'Brien's Black Women and Family forever known in these parts as "Black Women It Doesn't Suck to be You it only FEELS that way," I have some news to break the negative deluge, apparently Black women are far more likely to be early adapters of technology than our counterparts.
Black women are more likely than other women to spend time embracing technology, and they view cell phones and the Internet as tools of empowerment and self-expression, a study finds.
Compared with other women, five times as many black women — 36 percent — use cell phones for three or more hours a day, according to research released by Time Inc.'s Essence magazine. Black women also spend more extended time using iPods, computers, high-definition TVs and DVD players. Ohio.com
I know you like your cellphones, but before you pay sprint or T Mobile, make sure you pay yourself first because according to Soledad O'Brien, you are going to need that money in your old age because we're all going to die old and alone and be eaten alive by nine cats. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES SISTAS!!! Like the hounds of hell are upon you.
On a side note, I guess its a good thing the people at Blogging While Brown wrestled me to the ground and refused to let me go until I agreed to allow advertising on this blog.
