    Black men who have lost way, forgotten respect living in self individualism,
    taken wars against his fellow men, letting the ego factor rise above morrow
    black men who judge and lable critique his fellow men , one's who shattered
    the common grounds for his personal gain.
    Letting his leadership down by passing the torch , unwillingly to understand
    or simply not caring, black men who back down from responsibilities betrayed
    Fatherhood and morals of thy Home, unable to trust beyond his space of beings
    black men that have been taken low blows throughout time , been seen through
    a window of unworthy and not leaders even been said to be afraid to be men
    we been hit by the media / society / women by low standard economic and values
    we go unheard all because we refused to unite or seek a unity between men
    because we have this fear and pride because we wanna stand Alpha male
    because we haven't free'd self from mental slavery yet we have been for years
    a fighter in the black struggle / poverty and against our oppressor, but what
    have we become as men to settle for less or what we have in this A-meri-kan
    society , why have we turned our backs and given into defeat , cast our brothers out
    why have we as men broken the rules of engagement to live strong together
    in a voice powerful or use the tools we are delt today to better our structure

    So many unanswered question lay before us , why have our women turn the
    other cheek on us or breaking from our hub which bring me back to Respect !
    how have we let our intelligent way defined us as men through acts of strong
    holding / foulness and uglyness against each other .
    why do we seek ways to fight then bond showing anger then use this energy
    to fight our oppressor , we become our own enemy and oppressors .

    How many can honesty say they guilty of some of these tracks well known.?

    I mayself once fallen in my 20's only caring about my well beings , leaving a
    fellow brother down , set in my wayz beyond understanding and realized i was
    all along seeking hope/ wisdom/ knowledge looking through a broken window
    unable to trust have faith or give another brother time of day lacking this made
    me struggle deeper and more and more brothers lost to the streets umbralla
    of misguiding, broken homes became far and wide lost stablized structure
    became heavier watching black communities economic drop, Father & son
    became less , teaching stop / confussion starts then what !
    O' my we become self inner destroyers i'm so guilty until i found my assurance
    through knowledgable minds to uplift thy brother , never to turn him
    respect his opinionmize (if that a word) word and views by understanding
    reaching and trusting beyond inner fears i learn morals of Fatherhood home
    structure as a leader and made that choice to carry the torch for my family
    for my brother & fellow men, I say this to only discuss SOLUTIONS now
    we all pit blame and point fingers and stand back and talk about our today's
    socioeconomic our social society our sociology relationship beyond answers
    we as black men been white washed and program and labled too long
    we been afraid of the next step too long we been disrespect ourselves
    our women and fellow brothers too long and a Change is coming , time to
    take back our place as men / leaders / fathers / brothers and combind forces
    knowledge and wisdomize a solution and stop worring about the say and how
    we are place'd upon stups on blocks and caricature time we reach our worthyness
    our capacity and Brotherhood to build moral homes through the teaching our
    youth, claiming our place as men and stop letting the next man fall so easy
    reasure him and sho him reasons a goal lean a hand give upmost respect, use
    the tools we are delt and defeat our enemy not with guns / alpha power but
    with knowledge and wisdom , not with anger and individually but with our
    voices
    together.

    What are some solution and steps to bring our oppressor down lighten
    our struggle and help curb some of this poverty against us as black men ?

    What solution can be made to reach our women to fully support us
    love us and regain them back morally / mentally and spiritrually from this
    media and society myth of black men ?

    What solution can be brought forth to bring us commonly together to share
    well beings in today's society to better our living as black men ?

    Let's talk........ SOLUTION........ Black Men Worriors speak up / stand up reclaim !

    By the way -----------> BROTHERHOOD TODAY

    I have many thoughts on this topic which range from actions by individuals to organizations to businesses. So that this post won't be too long, I will share with the Family a short list of actions that can be taken to address poverty against Black men.

    1. EVERYONE SHOULD SAVE...SAVE...SAVE.

    2. Enter into vocational schools or an apprentice program to attain skills which demand a higher wage

    3. Open our own businesses and employ Black people

    4. If you have some money, invest in real estate, especially buying delapidated housing, fixing them up and selling them at higher prices thereby making a profit

    5. Business owners should always focus on improving efficiency within their business, continuously improve customer service, re-invest a portion of the profit into the business for R&D or ways to improve their product or service, and invest a portion of their profits in stocks; businesses invest too, not just individuals

    6. International Trade. Take your business international. The Global Market is where it's at. Product/Service goes out, money comes in...hence, you increase the wealth of the community.

    Note: All of these options can be done in the community, for the community, to better the community.



    1. LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN to Black women whenever we communicate with them. Ask questions so that we can dig deeper into what they are really trying to say. Most likely, the initial communication may NOT be what we expect, might not be something positive about us, or even understandable at all. Dig deeper for what Black women are really trying to say before shutting down ourselves or shutting her down.

    2. Be loving, nurturing, caring toward Black women.

    3. Be respectful of Black women

    4. Focus on having POSITIVE interactions with Black women or give them positive experiences with us

    5. Compliment Black women ALL THE TIME.

    1. Black men must communicate more with each other. We must have a code of Brotherhood...of Brotherly love. And should make a vow to not let anyone come because us as Black men.

    2. We must build a bond by interacting with one another, creating positive experiences with one another

    3. We must build trust with one another

    4. We must NEVER turn our backs on one another

    How we, as Black men, interact with one another will make our lives a lot easier.
