Fellow NWNW participant, writer, radio host and attorney Jeneba Ghatt wrote a thoughtful piece, Marriage activists use Beyonce’s pregnancy to send message to single moms for the Washington Times community pages. It trended upwards to the most read piece that day.

NWNW was mentioned here:

Monday, Justin Combs, the son of rapper/mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, caused a stir when he made a social commentary via twitter about single mothers, tweeting, “Beyonce dated, married, THEN got pregnant…young ladies take note.” It was a sentiment repeated by many since the announcement.

Prominent marriage advocates like blogger Christelyn Karazin of the “No Wedding No Womb” initiative that encourages in-wedlock births in the black community also addressed Justin Combs’ tweet in a post on the Family Scholars website, Can Beyonce and Jay-Z make marriage cool?.

“To have a prominent young person–a member of hip hop royalty by birth–be nervy enough to distribute this message to over 200,000 followers is earth shaking,” Karazin wrote. “Especially when this kid is the son of a man with multiple baby mommas. Perhaps there’s hope after all.”
