Wouldn't he be entering the world of nonexistence due to the notion that many black women just can't seem to bring themselves to recognize and acknowledge the few established brothers that are already around? To exchange this means to loose the sexual favor of the black woman. Many self-loafing men would make a change overnight if there were a sudden shift in the preference of most black women from anti-social thugs to educated, clean-cut upright men.
So let's sum up your argument here. As far as you're concerned, it's women's fault that 800,000 Black men are incarcerated. It's women's fault that some Black men subscribe to a thug mentality and participate in thug behavior. It's women's fault that some Black men refuse to acknowledge and be responsible for the children that they father. And ultimately it's women's fault that a disproportionate number of Black men are not applying to colleges. All of these issues are the Black women's fault. And according to the "radical" ideas that you've proposed, if the overwhelming majority of Black women would simply bumrush the few established brothas that are already around, these issues would be solved. This is your argument. This is your solution.
Ok Um, Brother Detroit, here's an idea that's truly radical. Ready? This may blow your mind, so may want to sit down for this one. Try accepting responsibility for your actions. Try being accountable for the decisions that YOU make rather than blaming everyone else, least of all, "women" for your errors and problems. I know it will take some time to digest this "radical" idea, but just let it sink in.
