    Don't be fooled by the media. While there is a high rate of children born out of wedlock among us, don't be decieved into thinking that the majority of black men suck responsibilities. There are a vast number of black fathers, myself included, who take care of their children, even in spite of the broken relationships that occurred. Some positive, irrefutable news about us brothers for a change.

    We also give props by the way of how we carry on the legacies of those we claim to have been our elders/mentors/role models/etc.

    From those who profited from so much, most is now expected, too...
