So I am in a discussion forum and this lady gets upset with me because I think a statistic that is being used that is wrong and I want to research it. It has to do with AA women and being single and the statistic came off like more then half of black children population are born to un wed and the. Percentage was like 73% and to me that seemed to damn high. So I go I would like to research it which takes time and the lady keeps acting like a I need to be right kinda person. Argh I know its Mother's Day but that got under my skin. I swear its the pregnant hormones. I had to stop myself from calling her names because it would have mooted every thing I said or would say. Whew I had to get that out.

Well she Copy and pasted a article which irks me to no end and then when I said I would like to research for myself she was like I was desperate. Her tone came off bitchy

I know who you're talking about lol

I used to go toe to toe with her constantly a few years ago, & finally was like "eff it"

There are other subjects we agree on surprisingly, so we just came to the conclusion, agree to disagree.

She is really passionate about out-of-wedlock births, & the family unit. I think she's a counselor in a shelter or something if I remember correctly.
