    Black manhood is
    ....manhood
    just because it's not white
    doesn't mean it's
    no/t good

    Black manhood

    characterized by respect
    for what is good
    ...for sistahood

    Black manhood means
    .....strength
    in character and heart
    Respect for family
    .....Him...
    doing his part

    not "baby momma" making
    and shaking his ****
    but handling his business
    with the woman he's wid
    {being legit}
    that's what Black manhood is.

    being a man is seen through your actions...

    not in your pronouncements of manhood. if we show those who are out in left field, what it is to be a man...maybe they will heed our examples. 'til then, i'll keep preaching and teaching.

    THANKS for the love...and the READ.

    ...yet

    who will teach a black boy
    about manhood?

    how will he learn what to do...
    when to do...
    and how to do...?

    who will define black manhoond...
    who will demonstrate black manhood...
    who will encourage black manhood?

    i digress for i do not want to
    invoke debate, but provoke thought...
    for, women will have to by a book
    written by a black man to teach
    a black boy about black manhood...
    ...how, artificial...

    there are many black boys
    who will never know
    or learn about
    black manhood...

    thanks...baller

    $$RICH$$...

    thanks for the READ...i saw you on the lakefront the other day...keeping your Queen warm.:)

    MsD....i know this topic touches deep places with you...for more than one reason. we both know that MOM is the strength of every family...the bond that keeps the home warm. even without the positive manhood figure, every boy with a MOM will know manhood principles and necesities. KEEP THE FAITH.

    BE...just trying to be like you and toss a few positive strokes every now and then...thanks for the love.

    MsD.

    until KINGS start acting like KINGS and step up to their roles...the burden fall on the shoulders of the QUEENS to lead in the way of the KING. NO...not forever...just UNTIL.......

    Ms A...THANKS for the kind words...may i always endeavor to live up to them.:) much love.

    THANKS FOR READING ME.
