    Black Relationships : Dealing With Loss and Regret

    Recently, my son and I lost his mother over last weekend. I brought my son down to Atlanta, as I do every year, so that he can spend the Christmas Holiday with his mother. His mother and I had talked over the last two years, and before the trip, I had got to thinking about our talks and...

    Black Men : Proud of my fellow Black Fathers

    Brothers, I celebrate you. I know you've heard for a long time that 72% statistic published by the CDC, the one that says that 72% of children are being born to unwed mothers. Celebrities have been using that to "inspire" black men to be better fathers, blindly believing the idea that we're...

    Black Relationships : Are We Being Honest With Ourselves and Each Other?

    I've been reading tons of writings lately with each gender pointing blame at the opposite sex as to why our relationships don't last. It seems that we got a lot of blame game going around, but not much opening up as to the real causes of problems within our relationships. We talk about why...

    Black Christians : Wealth, profit, and money discussion

    Black Poetry : Para-Dime Shift

    Some ask why I wait underneath timeless sheets of invisibility. I'd promise to explain if to attain I felt you had the ability. Not to insult, but it's always 'his' fault whenever I hear you talk of your woes. I won't dismiss the claim you make... because it takes two, I suppose. But in...

    Black Men : Ideas for Side Hustles

    Brothers, Destee had a point with the post that said we are willing to work, but it seems like we're set up to fail. But I think we will only be trapped by others if that's what we allow to happen. So here's my idea: In this thread, I want us men to use our creativity and knowledge to post...

    Black Relationships : An honest question for my sisters - what things about a man says that he can be used

    I want to know what things about a man says that he can be used. This isn't about a generalization about sisters at all. Some year and a half ago, I was told the reason I was chosen was because I was a prime target to be used. I have tried for a year to understand that so I can stop being a...

    Black Christians : Healing from afflictions and sickness

    Last night in bible study, my pastor brought up a few things about healing that I had never thought of. He talked about the differences between afflictions and sickness. The scripture he used was James 5:13-15. I'm quoting the NLT. "Are any among you suffering? They should keep praying about...

    Black Christians : Personal Responsibility as Christians

    To be clear, I want to discuss whether or not we believe that our cisrumstances, friendships, relationships, etc., are a result of things beyond our control or things that we have the authority to control. Though not the result of a pleasant conversation in another thread, Enejoh did bring up...

    Black Christians : Beyond Tithes and Offerings...

    ...What do you believe that the Bible says about money and the way you should handle it? I want to explore this because in the last 5 years, I've really begun to see many things that many of our church leaders do not discuss that could free us financially. I began learning about money from...
