These are truely desperate time my brothers, we have completely dropped the ball. I know its not all our fault, but the situation the black community is in is depressing to say the least. Our streets are filled with drug dealers,dope addicts and prostitutes, our homes are filled with overworked and underpaid single mothers with miseducated children, who are mostly taught by white women.Where the hell is the strong black men?How can we standby and let this happen to our community, arent we the head? How can our women respect us, how can our children respect us, how can anyone respect us when we dont even respect ourselves. I know its hard, i know we are the most hated, and the most unjustly treated human beings on the face of the earth, but were is our dignity. Is it lost in the slave breaking process, did jim crow still our pride? Are drugs the only comfort we can find in a world so cold to us. And how about our women, do they respect us , do they stand by us, and if not why? This is not to say all brothers fall in this category ,but such an overwhelming proportion of our black men do fall into these categories.How will regain our stolen legacy ,and trade in self hate, self pity and hopelessness for positions of power, inspirations , and justice. Come brothers lets discuss these issues. I love you black man, and im man enough to say it. It saddens me very much to see us in this state, I want us to stand up as leaders, fathers, husbands and take back rightful posssesion of what is ours

Calling All Brothers!!!!!!

After posting numerous times here and on other sites, I can definitely say that we as a community can no longer depict thugs, gangstas and drug dealers as our "alpha males" in the community. We can't afford to abandon our children and families.

And we definitely can't trivialize an academic education as insignificant to "street smarts," when really we need both.
I definitely agree with you whole heartedly. I think it has a lot to do with imagery; how black men are portrayed and the examples of successful black men the youth see, ie sports stars, rappers, drug, deals, pimps and gansters. where are the true role models?It seems to me as far as the education process is concerned, i dont think the children first of all get the proper rearing at home, and second are not taught by people who necessarily care about their well being , most of our children are taught by non-black people, who for the most part cant really relate to our youth and the special needs they have, thats why i believe we must create our own cirriculums, which are designed to address the unique problems we have as people, and also we need more black men , becoming teachers and big brothers, this why im considering very seriously going into the teaching field. I know how it is growing up ,going to school feeling as if no one understand you or being undervalued and marginalized by sterotypes and false perceptions of us as a people
