Observations Back in the day, brothers used to acknowledge each other and say, "What's happenin' " like the song by Marvin Gaye. Nowadays brothers walk towards each other and look in another direction; No acknowledgement, no unity, no love like back in the day. I wonder what happened to make black men who used to be brothers change into shallow, materialistic, hateful automatons? I guess they have developed a new "be HARD", "Thug Life" mentality that considers it "soft" to have love for their fellow man. Anyway, this is just an observation. I have encountered MANY such brothers that didn't acknowledge me. Now their minds are in their iPhones, cars, women, and other places. They are no longer focused on unity.
