On this week’s episode of The 411 Live, Beverly Taylor talks to Jason Boyd, Life Coach and Author to talk about whether or not relationships suck and if dating is even worse. Jason Boyd is the author of “The Reasons Why Relationships Suck but Dating is Worse” and strongly believes women are naturally meant to be the leaders in a relationship and if they knew this and act accordingly, relationships could greatly improve for many. He believes this theory is based on the fact that men naturally pursue women and women naturally instruct men and challenge them to be better. Meanwhile, if a woman pursues a man then, as Jason Boyd states, “when the mouse pursues the cat, the cat will still eat the mouse. As a man, you don’t set the tone in the relationship.” What do you think about this topic? Does modern American society misunderstand the male-female relationship dynamic?

In the 1930s the federal government began redlining real estate, marking “risky” neighborhoods for federal mortgage loans on the basis of race.
