    Okay I WAS an avid reader of Essence,Ebony and all of that, until I got tired of supporting magazines that constantly on the front..Why do Men cheat..do black men still want us ..yah yah yah..It's like they are supposed to be BLACK magazines..yet they are cutting down our community with a double edge sword. It's just tiring..it tells you on one hand how to have a healthy relationship then next..telling you not to get into one or to be watchful because here are the signs..that he might be cheating on you and stuff. I mean yes you do have to be careful, but you end up being so brainwashed..that u miss the love because you are supposed to be looking for the signs. I mean when are we going to see magazines with articles on how to love each other righteously..and big bold covers with headlines about love..and not the bad parts of it. How can we expect to move on as a family/community/nation without love for one another. Alot of women are out here hollering..we want a good man..but they subconsciously hate him.Come on..get real. Can we pick up the pieces..and be like Ossie and Ruby?.. Im worried about the black family..Its getting sickening.

    I am also worried about the black family. I agree with you about Ebony, Essence and all the other Black Magazines. What kind of image are the portraying as well to our children. There are sooo many positive, loving, and working black relationships in this nation that have never had to suffer from love and I agree they need to be upheld. Our black men have consistently been robbed of their goodness it is time as a nation/community/family that we give them and their goodness in all areas some upfront support and encouragement.
    Maybe writing in to those magazines will make a differences?
    I no longer subscribe to them.

    we have to learn how to love ourselves.
    this is one of the most over worked phrases in the community.

    i have heard so many people declare love for self without doing ANY work.

    that is the little secret in the community.
    most people who declare self love don't know what they are talking about.
    it takes work and study.
    one has to do their homework.
    one has to break it down.

    few people do the work.

    it's not easy to love black people.
    not because they are bad, but because of the brainwashing.

    loving black people is like trying to have sex with a porcupine.
    ouch!
