    Everyone who received this is either:
    1. A good black man
    2. Has a good black man
    3. Will be blessed with a good black man soon
    4. Has met a Good Black Man; but failed to recognize him.
    *******************************
    Good Black Men are indeed all around us. We
    pass them on the streets,
    in the malls and the halls at work. Most we
    can't see because we
    don't know what a good man really looks like.
    He
    usually isn't flashy
    enough
    or rich enough to turn our heads. He might not
    wear a suit or push a
    Lexus. He might not have a body like Tyson
    with a Denzel face. But,
    as
    you mature; you realize it's better to find
    someone who's got your
    back
    rather than someone who turns your head.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ recognize. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A good man doesn't agree wholeheartedly with
    everything you say. He
    doesn't just tell you what you want to hear
    and do the opposite. He
    doesn't declare how sensitive, sweet, caring,
    sincere, yada, yada he
    is
    (He won't have to because it shows).

    He has his own opinions and yours may clash,
    but he doesn't have to
    degrade you to prove he's right. He even
    admits at times to being
    wrong,
    especially if you are willing to do the same.
    A good man is not going
    to meet every item on your checklist. He is
    human with frailties and
    faults mixed in with all of his wonderful,
    strong attributes. He
    needs
    your love and respect. ~~~~~~~~~~Hello!

    He needs to feel that you don't live to catch
    him doing something
    wrong
    so you can declare, Aha! I knew you were a
    dog!! A good man isn't
    insecure about his women having great
    achievements.

    In fact he is her number one supporter and
    becomes disappointed with
    her when she begins
    to lose herself, for the sake of not hurting
    his feelings, or just
    want
    to make him happy.

    His happiness comes with seeing her excel in
    her dreams and
    accomplishing her goals. For as she excels and
    is exalted, a good
    woman
    will bring her good man right along with her.
    A good man doesn't
    necessarily give you a huge birthday or
    Valentine's gift.

    He shows his love in the ways that are
    comfortable to him.
    Don't judge him by TV standards.

    No one is really living a fairy-tale.
    You'll miss out on your own fairy tale by
    buying into the myth that
    our men are no good.

    It's Just not true.
    Black Men, we salute you, and thank you for
    who you are and all
    you've done.

    Pass this along to a few women that need to
    read it ... so that they
    can recognize a Good Black Man.

    Pass this along to a few Black men that need
    to know....so they can
    recognize ..... what it takes to be a Good Black
    Man

    When God Made the Black Man

    He had Adonis on his mind
    He took the finest dark clay of Mother Earth
    And shaped it into a vision of masculine excellency
    Then he breathed into his nostrils the breath of African life
    And the Black man became the King of Soul

    For whatever they are, they are our men.

    Question

    If a man says something in the middle of the forest and there's no woman around to hear him will he still be wrong?
