I think black women don't commit suicide as much because we are somewhat arrogant. We think too much of ourselves and aren't easily discouraged.

black women are taught from birth not to have high expectations regarding our lot in life.

This as well. We can't be a disappointment to anyone either cuz we're on the bottom so we just don't give a eff what anyone thinks.

This, and I think that black women, whether implicitly or explicitly, are taught that we're supposed to shoulder other people's burdens. That this is what a good woman is supposed to do. The problem with this comes when we're having issues of our own and, since we're holding everyone else's problems, feel like other people are going through too much to even listen to us.

One explanation was that as women insecurity and despair can be voice more easily by women.
I think familial , religious, and cultural ties are the strongest factors that ward off suicide .
Gender expectations also

I do believe that BW cultural and religious tendencies have a lot to do with not committing suicide.

Read a study that people of faith tend to be happier overall

One of the biggest reasons I could never do it, no matter how bad it gets. Depression is real and scary. We blacks in America have many reasons for being depressed. I'm glad for how God created us (Yes, I do believe God blessed us with a special soul--for enduring, joy, music, dance, etc. ) cus white folks can't handle 1/8 of the sh*t they give us in this country.

A good friend of mine committed suicide. We never would have suspected he would because he was so successful and had everything anyone could ask for. We assumed he was happy. I later found out he was feuding with his family over money. He couldn't take it anymore so he took his own life and all his assets and money went to charity.




He was feuding with family over his own funds?  smh.
