This is not my opinion, but the observations of another.
The same still applies.

I think it's quite accurate.
My post still applies.

Protection of family falls on both parents doesnt it?
Still this subject is subjective b\c so people would say no, it’s the man place to take that blow or that bullet, to give his life for his family.

Moreover, we arent in Africa

I’m aware of that, but you are a proponent of this opinion by someone else who has defined what makes a man and what makes a male. What if his/her opinion also said that a man can be called a man only if he meet the criteria of weighting at least 250lbs and stands 6’4 and makes 60k per yr? Would that offend your manhood?

My definition of manhood is basic, manhood is just the the period in a man life when he is no-longer a child, when he has mastered certain social skills, when he is looked upon with respect as an adult; as a man.

Here is america, our manhood has been going through a dismantelling process since our enslavement which annihilated this social status that the blackman once held. and because of this process, the concept of manhood is becoming increasingly ambiguous and elusive.

But this is for another thread, I’m getting your thread off track, I apologize for that.

Peace!

If you have a strong foundation (family, education ) If you believe in yourself. Please explain how anyone can dismantle anyones manhood so easily? I submit that the inability of females to find a decent/suitable man or raise children to manhood, has more to do with that

Though I appreciate your opinion, we will agree to disagree. Manhood has some basic things to it's character. I think those have been outlined here
This is true. Our male children should not be left hanging with the advice that being a man means whatever. There are basic characteristics which if adopted will move us forward as a people. A strong collective ethic is a unifying force. It's not about the situation. A man is a thermostat. A male is a thermometer.

I think too many sisters out here, for whatever reason(s), dont have a clue as to what a man is. Thus some of the myriad of bad decision they make in picking a mate. Too many think anything of a certain age with a third leg, qualifies. Twenty or thirty or so years ago, women were more practical. Somewhere, we lost the true meaning. It's time we get that meaning back

Hard to know where to begin. There is no one factor that is the sole cause of our dysfunction as a people. Maybe brotha Omo is right that we need to focus less on the causes and more on the goal. You know where you are regardless of how you got there. So focus on where you want to go and reject any message that does not help you get there. Not to rescind anything I said in the past or downplay the importance of sankofa but just to show there is another side to it.
