    Black women and Black men
    been
    Seperated for too long. What
    happened to Black Love that
    was so STRONG? We don't
    belong
    in separation. There's so much
    desperation for Love and Lust
    amongst Us. We need to gather
    to discuss our lack of friendship,
    honesty, commitment and trust.
    Black women and Black men
    used to be role models to our
    youth. Within our love was the
    Truth. Then poof!, our love and
    connection died over years of
    self-destruction, self-indulgence
    and lack of self-pride. Black
    women and Black men attack
    one another as if we're not sisters
    and brothers. Under covers we lay
    but only just for a day, or maybe
    two. Is it true that Black Love has
    died? Will our future be denied
    because we are scared to look
    one another in the eye and sit
    to discuss and devise a plan to
    get us back together again? Black
    women and Black men
    When we we love ourselves and
    one another again?

    I hear every word you're saying...and I'm ready, willing and able to sit at the table with my black people...to find the missing link...for we all know that, Yes...something is very wrong, but I can't fight alone. I feel you on this one and I enjoyed reading the truth. Just keep spreading the word.

    Tight piece...

    I feel you as well. There is a great need for us to sit down at the table of love and honesty...and air things out...because we need each other terribly.

    :thanks: for sharing a part of you with us.

    The flow was honest and true, this message came through loud and clear, as it was intended, and needed to be. Props to you on this.
