    Hey fam,
    There is something that has been on my mind.
    I recently had a conversation with my Pops and he made a statement that black women don't appreciate hard working black men.

    Brothas do you think this is true?

    From viewing my surroundings and society in general it does seem that some of our sisters would rather pick the rough neck, gangsta type brotha. Doing everything illegal under the sun, as opposed to our straight laced brothas working hard making an honest living and doing whats right.



    Sweettee, peace

    Seems that way when women are younger, but as they get older they tend to shy away from the 2to5'ers.

    Yes younger women take to the thugish type hard bodies
    over a hard working man , i agree as they become of age
    and move from the street life style of men to a home bound
    working man .

    it's a fact one i had a chance to view up close when she picked
    this guy who work the streets and drug trade and drive a fancy car
    over the guy that was sweet / kind and a hard factory working brother
    who did get paid well but she felt he was too soft , she wanted a hard
    thugish type who rules and control everything around him which means
    her as well ..

    Good Guys alwayz come last in every race .......look at me i'm way in the back
    nobody notice me .....LOL

    which now leaves me with questions unanswered guess i'll post them in a totally
    new thread !

    Actually, there is a trend that females of all ages look at men the wrong way. When they are young, they view him as somewhat of a lame, uncool type. That isnt a challenge for them. When they are older, they view him as a checkbook :darts: :garbage: :kick:

    I wouldn't go so far as to say they are unappreciated, more like underappreciated, but not by me. Nothing like a hard working man, the harder the work put in, the manlier, IMO.

    Let's give it up for the hard-working Brothers:great:

    Peace

    I will admit that there have been moments where I was discouraged with sisters wanting thugs over a "hard-working brother". I have seen first hand where sisters who are so incredibly gorgeous that they can make brothers act a little crazy. These fine sisters I've witnessed then only go with the no good "dogs", barely employed, or thugged out guys. They often end up with children and an absent baby-daddy...THEN, they want a "good man" but I usually try not to pay them attention by then if they are that type. It can get frustrating sometimes, but I have faith though.

    The last sister like that I encountered was a couple months ago who actually told me, "You are cute and all, but you need to cut your afro off...I like pretty thugs". She didn't really care about any of my aspirations or character for that matter. I have found sisters less superficial and less immature, but they tend to be older than myself.

    We are underappreciated. Everyone needs to appreciate each others selfworth. Be Blessed!

    Love her constantly,consistently,and with concern!

    That is my mantra not just to my better half,but to all women and girls 24/7 365. It should be that way in reverse order also!:kiss1:
