Loni Love and the ladies of the Real talked about Ciara’s infamous post by sharing a clip of Pastor John Gray’s advice to women who were looking to get married.
The singer, who wed husband Russell Wilson in 2016, shared the clip of Pastor Gray’s message with the caption, “#LevelUp. Don’t settle.”

Loni Love claims:
On Monday’s show she made the point of asking how it would be possible for a Black woman to find their perfect match when a number of Black men are unavailable due to incarceration.
“Let’s tell the truth about why, I’m saying in the African-American community, why there is a shortage pool of available men. Why? Because of over incarceration, and the problem is, those are a lot of our brothers that we could be marrying,” she said. “If you’re growing up in say the projects, there are not a lot of men. And if those men are getting overly arrested, they can’t get a job, then that pool is limited. We have to fix the root problem, and the root problem is, why aren’t there enough available men so that women can get married? People want to be happy like Ciara. When she made this comment they were like, “You lucked up because you’re a celebrity, he was able to find you and you were able to find him but I’m sitting over here in the projects or I’m working every day and I can’t find dudes. Why? Because my dude is somewhere locked up! We need to start working on the facts, why are these brothers getting locked up so much? We need to work on this. Because if I have friends who are locked up over a $5 bag of weed, but now you got dispensaries where they can buy a $5 bag of weed, what is going on here?”
