Some of y'all may not like the advice that Steve Harvey is dishing out when it comes to relationships *cough* okay, okay...this includes me too, but obviously there is a very large sect that loves him because the brother is laughing all the way to the bank.

Jasmine Suntrell, a video blogger, decided to put a video together to explain to her mother why she in particular could not stand the comedian.  By putting together different clips of Harvey from different appearances on different shows, she was able to come up with a very interesting mash-up of inflammatory quotes from the comedian .

I'm not sure if her video is going to work on the masses in the black community because there are a lot of us that share these same views that Steve has especially when it comes to some of his most sexist and homophobic remarks.  This may also explain why his book is so popular.  He touches on some things that a large amount of us believe to be true.

 Now, I'm pretty sure some of you are saying that Jasmine needs to realize that Steve is just a comedian and the things that he's saying aren't that serious.  He's just trying to entertain, but the fact of the matter is that the people who are quoting his book are not playing.  They are very serious about the business of finding love and are willing to try whatever method that can lead them to this path.  So people should pay attention to the advice he's giving.

With the movie based on his popular book, Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man, being one of the most successful RomCom's to come out this year, the skies is the limit for Mr. Harvey.  I'm sure we can expect a Broadway play or something else based on the book.  This critique by Ms. Suntrell is not going to do anything to hurt the brand of  Steve Harvey. 

It just begs for people to take a closer look at what is actually being said.
