    Is there any legitimate reason for grown men to fist fight? We see this a lot in sports but is it really necessary? Is there a purpose? I say this because I have adopted the philosophy that men don't fight men, men kill. I say this because I have never had a fist fight with a men as an adult and I have not had a fist fight with a black person since the 6th grade. This in no way means that I am soft or a pushover. It means if it's not worth dying for it's not worth fighting for. I feel if I rise my hand to strike a man I intend to kill him. In the same respect if a man raises his hand to me I view it as a threat on my life. Therefore in my defense I must kill my enemy so he doesn't return. Suprizingly this philosophy has kept be out of fights because no one has given me a reason to kill them. How about you family? Is there any reason to kick someones butt?


    Peace...

    There is no reason to get physical as an adult unless someone does it against you first. And unfortunately, there are people out there that aren't mature enough to follow this philosophy, so it may be more necessary than it seems even going by this reasoning.

    NO.

    Extremely WISE words.

    YOU'VE echoed/mirrored MY philosopy perfectly.

    All MEN do live by this code of LIFE, cause that's

    what it is....a code of LIFE.

    I feel the same way. Men should not have to reslove conflicts with each other by fighting. I myself have not been involved in a fight since grammar school, but I think that it is important to understand the behavior, especially of those that feel they are socially and economically deprived.

    I have had the privledge of having close associates and family memebers that were the "violent" type to talk with me about their feelings. Of course we know that everyone isnt equipped to battle intellectually or anaylize situations logically, so there is a certain comfort zone in handling a person's business the most comfortable way that they know how. Of course there's not excuse for a grown man to act like a child, but there are people who dont know any other way to channel that energy.

    If you notice, there are people that actually "need" to fight or start a conflict every now and then. These people are emotionally unstable, and they attempt to get others to feel a third of the pain that they are feeling. The sad part about it is that it never makes the situation better, so they constantly look for that "high" to ease what they go through.

    In my opinion violence is addictive, and there are many people that use it as their drug of choice.

    is there any reason...

    fistfighting has become a lost art among blackmen[no i'm not gloryfyin it just makin a point]back in the day when two black guys wanted to beef they would roll up their sleeves and duke it out[in most cases it was over with by the next day]you were considered a punk if you pulled out a knife[almost no one pulled a gun back then]but with the advent of[gangster this and gangster that]these youngsters have no concept of[put up your dukes].

    I hear you Brother. The gentlemens way of resolving disputes over disrespect is a lost art. I also believe drugs had a lot to do with that as well. The competition for drug profits became so fierce that it wasn't enough to beat up a rival gang or drug dealer. One had to competely eliminate the competition. This brings us back to point of saving face in the eyes of their peers. To what length will one go to avoid the embarassing shame of being defeated? Again if it isn't worth dying for it isn't worth fighting for....



    Peace....

    Of course there are good reasons to kick a cat's ***.........I have to agree with Oldiesman on this one..........when I was coming up cats would knuckle up and some of them boys had hand skills these days though a lot of these boys just don't have the skills or mindset to get after it that's why the guns and knives come into it cuz them cats don't have the heart or skills to do it with their hands and need that weaponry...........I was raised in an environment however where I was taught to respect grown men and their manhood and as such just couldn't talk any way I wanted to when speaking to a cat that was older than me........now if you did get out of line then you got handled......My Daddy raised me that way......and I firmly believe that if I speak to you respectfully you'll do the same to me if not then we can handle it ..........(and to all those wondering yeah I'll fight another man for what a lot might consider stupid ish)......yelling at me ,calling me out my name, putting his hands on me, yelling at my kids or their mother, among other things I would consider open disrespect.....
    That attitude though is a throwback from days long gone today young cats talk to older cats any old way , men address men any old way, talk to other dudes kids any old way folk say some really disrespectful things to people these days handling folk any way they see fit ....not with me you aint' just gon handle me any old way especially if I'm not doing that to you.......and if you do want to show your *** with me then I'll show my *** with you .....I'm an Old Schooler folk, Old School Country Mississippi as unpopular as that may be .........

    Absoutely not!
    Grown men have no reason to fight unless they are violently attacked by a man of lesser brain... or are defending family which has been attacked by so.
    When someones wackiness empedes on anothers in a violent way.. which defense is needed... then a blk man by instinct will fight. But.. there is no sense in fighting.. drop the mofo.. and leave.. use as little engergy as possible.. to defeat your victim.. so the even womnt be made a spectacle of. The last thing we need is the public to observe blk men fighting.

    Hahaaaa, Mississppi Red, Mah BoyYYYeee! LOL!

    Radical, I do see your point, and agree, brother... Whenever I get that angry at a man to strike him, my intentions will be deadly - believe it! I guess when you get long in the tooth like me, the energy expended really has to be worth it... I aint fighting nobody for no black eyes... Been there done that, and it aint no thrill no more either way...


    Peace!
