Thanks for writing this. Problems cannot be solved if people don't even know what the real problem is.
I have very little experience with black women. I trained computer programmers. I assumed everybody could do everything until they proved they couldn't. I found that skin color, language, or other superficial things had no impact. Every woman, black, white & Hispanic, did great. I had 2 men fired - one for arrogance (He knew everything and wouldn't listen) and the other could not understand the IF-Then-Else concept.
