    The only things that grow without our efforts are weeds

    Gotta luv'm.

    Let the spark of African manhood that racism has tried to extinguish blaze up in a sweeping inferno of redeemed Black communities.

    If the youth can build an economy on drugs they can build an economy on things that will benefit the people. Poverty is no excuse to participate in your own self destruction. But it's the elder men who will let the young men know this--let them stand on their shoulders so they can see above street level.

    I am familar with Men United...they do good works in the community...town watches, anti-drug marches...fundraising.

    Im involved with Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign, and members of Men United are with this organization, so I know the standards, the integrity and true concern these brothas have.

    im just shocked any media would even write about this organization, because they only seem to focus on how many of us are shooting each other.
