Fellow NWNW participant, writer, radio host and attorney Jeneba Ghatt wrote a thoughtful piece, Marriage activists use Beyonceâ€™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 â€œDiddyâ€ Combs, caused a stir when he made a social commentary via twitter about single mothers, tweeting, â€œBeyonce dated, married, THEN got pregnantâ€¦young ladies take note.â€ It was a sentiment repeated by many since the announcement.
Prominent marriage advocates like blogger Christelyn Karazin of the â€œNo Wedding No Wombâ€ initiative that encourages in-wedlock births in the black community also addressed Justin Combsâ€™ tweet in a post on the Family Scholars website, Can Beyonce and Jay-Z make marriage cool?.
â€œTo have a prominent young personâ€“a member of hip hop royalty by birthâ€“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 thereâ€™s hope after all.â€
