    fatherless child to the fatherless
    child. Wildest wild of the buck
    wild.BLACK BANDIT!

    Stealing, lying, cheating, killing,
    raping terrorizing your own...
    Half of you dead before you half

    Somebodies baby! What went
    wrong, did your momma love
    you to soft or did she love you
    to strong, did she leave you to
    make it on your own.

    LOOK WHAT YOU DOING TO YOU!

    "fatherless child to the fatherless
    child. Wildest wild of the buck
    wild.BLACK BANDIT!"

    powerful words, my sistah. there are too many of our YOUNG MEN who haven't figured out what it means to be a man. regardless of past, we must rise above our circumstances to become who we should be. NOT rapists and murderers. NOT thieves and killers. NOT abusive husbands or fathers. but MEN.

    THANKS for flowing.

    Oh My ****!

    This piece speaks deeply
    to my heart and soul.

    "did your momma love
    you to soft or did she love you
    to strong, did she leave you to
    make it on your own."

    strong and interesting questions.....

    they start out as victims of circumstances,
    but they need to find direction and learn how
    to become victors over their adversaries,
    including themselves.

    Excellent work!


    Scribeaboutit! It helps.

    Sista! you sure are there!!!

    "black bandits black with no excuse"

    Sister I think this piece really makes me see that no matter where you are, men, black men are facing the same challenges and us sista's are their strong foundations to see them through. whether they will admit it or not. We are our brotha's strength.

    The strength that not only gives life but sustains life and preserves life. The black bandits are not alone-or are they bandits by choice and not by circumstance?

    gr8 stuff!

    lo'

    Speak!

    Social calls always get my attention and this piece delivers--what happened to these Black Bandits? Who knows, but it is certainly a question worth asking--Amun-Ra
