Black and African-American Quotes

Valentine's Day don't mean nothing. It's a pressure day for men — all they can do is just survive it. It's a "made up" holiday that they put too close after Christmas.

Sinbad on Valentine’s Day

You know, when you’re single, you’re very independent. Very independent women raised me. We didn’t have a lot of male figures as the head of our household, so I got, and took on, a lot of that strong spirit from the matriarchs in my family. It allows you to get on through life a lot easier, but the downside is that you don’t have that experience of watching a male figure interact with women in the home. When you come from an all-female household, when you’re in a relationship, you get into situations you don’t really know how to handle, which I didn’t.
