This was taken from my reply in the long thread but warrent it's own space One thing i learn and notice is we like to attack the thoughts therein of Brotherhooding by counter attacking with why and what purpose of it yet we will go buy a new shirt without questioning why there is 5 buttons who made it and for what purpose. We all know why and what it's for to cover our backs / cloth our skin to help us be presentable beyond any reason or purpose but our own assumption well my brothers , Brotherhooding all black men will do the same as that shirt. Because we are a piece of that shirt and together we will make one great wear but in pieces not fitting in that shirt will become irregular not organized we have to look through our own window and sum it up to why we brotherhood every man express these reason and we all must respect that man reasons then we can narrow it down to a sum of reasons to unite and build each other up beyond disagreement / fighting and individualism the only way is to look not from self window but the next window to see more deeper into the vast of reasons. 1. RESPECT thy brothers views openly Respecting thy mate / women / sistas 2. UNDERSTANDING common goals as men how to defind them collectively 3. NETWORKING together to reach solutions/ goals/ brothering / outreaching 4. FATHERHOODING sharing common intrest family morals daily living 5. BUILDING a foundation for our future children 6. FEAR not thy brother but join him / wise & knowledgeable minds is power 7. ECONOMY to teach a better household manament and share the resources of arrangement to bring a wider economic into the black communities have a stronger home front 8. TRUST one thing seem so hard to do is this, but if we going anywhere we must take a manly chance on our brothers inorder to move forward know he's not your enemy we have trusted before blindly without known the out come why not upon thy brother we can't trust his word and movement let our ego down and trust 9. VALUE his opinions / views with common value beyond being judgemental 10. OPPORTUNITY to change how our women see us how black men are labled to bring back manhood and do what society say we can't do as black men 11. UPLIFTING worriors who have fallen , forgotten and ashame re-asure him he's worthy no matter what he's done or where he's been and it's never too late 12. RAGE we all have it within yet not willingly to let go and use our mental skillz and great will of intelligents to be our defeater but we display it against each other this where we failed at and the white wash society knows this of us, rage up by impowering the mind and resources 13. DISAGREEING know how to disagree by agreeing to disagree with a solutional template and not anger factor 14. RESPONSABILITY we as men have to take back full responsabilities for our action our children / home and living and moral settings 15. STRUCTURE we need to invest and use the tools we have to give us a bigger vast what to invest or why ! invest in free marketing for capitalism and to gain corporated ownership 16. ISSUES we all have them but expressing them correctly is what we lack of time we together work out many of our issues with understanding / respect and Gods good faith as well hope 17. PAIN & PASSION knowing the differents and how to express the passion how to let pain be a care guide more you care less you will hate. 18. LISTENING another key for us as men we act before really listening to the facts knowing thy meanings and we quickly break down barriers of fellowship as men. This why we need Brotherhood and what Brotherhood can and will offer you ! it will be a lifter and mentor and a friend to all men . I'm sure the reasons list can go on and on why we should and need to join bond bring forth a Brotherhood and work together in unity these are a few reasons to come in say yes and start Brothering , so i ask again this year are you ready willingly to Build a foundation to start brotherhooding ?? If not, why not !??? Are you ready i am ?? Can you be my brothers keeper ..........? Holla at ole $$RICH$$ ya know .
