IMHO, being a thug is a cop-out. Not original, certinly not unique, not individual and quite one-dimentional and self-centred.

Whatever world we live in, everyone creates their own reality - reality is every conscious moment and how people choose to act in that moment.

A man with self-respect and dignity usually respects others...he is a King in my book.

Whether he's academic or flips burgers, that shines off a man as clearly as any bling.

A thug has no respect for anyone and is just an over-sized little boy with a bad attitude. Razz

Yes... your description of a thug is mine also.... I tried to portray the sentiment of those I know as best I could.... What I presented wasn't a justification.... It was a perspective.....

It also wasn't scientific..... It was simply another experience....

One may not like it...... but it exists and gives one another window into another mindset.....

I described it the way that I did because among women that I know they can't really express what they're feeling..... but it comes out in bits and pieces.....

I uphold righteous principles...... so a thug is not a King..... and the women that I know don't think so..... not really..... But what they do see is an aspect of a King that strikes them as attractive.....

And that is creating His own world.....
One with a Black face...

Not a world where they exist and can help move along the objectives and goals of a world that is run by their oppressors....

Hard concept to swallow? Accept? Agree with? Understand?

Sure....

I am the same way.....

But one difference is....I understand it....

And a question was asked so I thought I shed light on what I know actual women are saying....

a god.... heavy word.... yes.... loaded with meaning.....

but these women aren't crack pots.....
some of them use this word..... because of the strength attached to it.....

This shows me the importance of certain qualities....

This also shows me the desperation to see this aspect of manhood played out......

So much so..... that they'll even turn towards a thug to receive it.....


Peace,
Virtue
