I was just thinking about the so-called state of my fellow brothers in the struggle for claming our manhood, our self-esteem, and a sense of identity. Look ladies, women, and sisters. If you have children make sure you hug and kiss them and reassure them. I know it is hard at times because of so many issues that affect us as a people. When I look back on my childhood I remember some of the harsh things that was said to me as a child, from various sources, so called friends, family, teachers, and white society as a whole. Even though I am much older now, but at times the effects of the negative things that was said still bothers me today and at times it is hard to shake off. Sisters I don't know how other brothers feel, but it really disturbs me with the constant bashing and re-enforcement guess what our little boys hear this too, so what are they to think!!! Some people is more sensitive than others different things affect different people in different ways. Please ask GOD for wisdom in how to talk to our children.
