Thanks for sharing Brother Panafrica! Indeed half the battle begins with seeing the glass as half-full!
a refreshing write.. thanks for sharing Pan.. and happy father's day brother!
Thank you ifucomesoftly. I wish I could have posted this article earlier; however, the message is appropriate for every day of the year.
you know it makes me think... what kind of future are we painting for our little boys and young men... 'black men are becoming extinct' or 'most black men are gay or in jail' or the list goes on and on... ut what of the success stories... what of the men who make it without a sneaker deal or a record contract... what of the 'guys struggling to live, learn, pay the bills and handle our business as neighbors, citizens, husbands and fathers. Just like your dad.'
what a beautiful day when people stop thinking that a black man who has never been to jail, a proper and righteoius husband adn father, and a good citizen is NOT the exception to the rule? Oh what a beautiful day when i don't feel the same way half the time!
brother i am a work in progress...
