...and what's so good about a self-confessed black alpha male?
Let's not confuse males with men.
"You know you are a Black Alpha Male if..."
....if you have to have everything YOUR WAY, always ...every concession is a grandiose gesture ...you only ever see women as competitors rather than partners ...you are terrified of a black (or white) alpha female ...you like strong-minded women, until they disagree with you ...you believe your own BS ...you present well, but you're really incredibly insecure
Okay: Alpha Males... As in wolves; as in animals. Human beings are lot more adaptable, more versatile and cooperative than this "Alpha Myth". In my opinion, the whole concept is simply a rationalization for base elitism.
There are many types of leader, boss or sovereign; just as there are many types of society, work-group or situation. Why must we limit ourselves to an arc typical personality?

you believe in chivalry and act accordingly
Intelligent alpha males are not a bad thing and I think they go perfectly well with intelligent alpha women. Each has a separate domain.
I agree with Frenchy's contrast between the Negative and the Positive Alpha Male. What Frenchy described is a Positive intelligent Alpha Male. What Firefly described is a Negative egotistical Alpha Male. The latter is what gives men bad names, the former (Intelligent Positive Alpha Males) are what the world needs more of today. Unfortunately, Positive Alpha Males are considered "Beta Males" in today's Social Darwinistic society. I consider myself a positive Alpha Male and I consider myself much stronger than any egotistical "alpha male" who I consider to be weak men trying to cover up their weakness by fronting.
There's a difference between being assertive and being egotistical. I like Alpha Females, I agree with Kai's characterization of them. I absolutely LOVE THEM.
