    WHY HE HATES YOU
    THE BOOK THAT WILL FOREVER CHANGE THE CONVERSATION ABOUT BLACK AMERICA…


    Black Men and Boys are angry…Why? Because they have been forced to repress and bury deep in a place never discussed a burning and fiery angst towards their parents. Stated simply, they HATE their parents. Janks Morton in his semi-autobiographical work tackles head on the taboo subject of maternal resentment in the African American community.

    Why specifically maternal resentment? A generation of young black children have been raised exclusively by single-mothers. Morton acknowledges while that some of these children’s antipathy may be directed towards the non-residential fathers, predominantly the object and the focus of a young black boy’s rage is directed squarely at the person responsible for their guidance, their direction, their socialization, their joy and their pain. Their primary care givers and providers – their Mothers.

    Morton’s narrative of searing personal stories offers a pathway to a larger conversation that for far too long has been held sacred… Morton’s talking truth describes the traumas young boy’s experiences with angst-creating parental techniques such as negotiation, manipulation, and castigation.
    Parental approaches that are too often utilized in the single parent home and are the well springs to the seas of resentment.

    The Author’s hope is through sharing intimate and personal details from his own life, readers can begin to acknowledge the unresolved, unreconciled, and unrecognized parental resentments that can debilitate and shackle their lives. Morton’s personal stories shake loose those things unremembered, and unrecalled to help readers understand the power of forgiveness in order to walk the path towards restoration.

    why i hate you

    why give any air time to such divisive mess?? and the triteness of "well, we need to face our demons" falls as flat as them demmed tattoos (mark of the beast)and that cellophane hair style (self hate).

    i do wish there were something more of growth and substance here that i could feel like participating in rather than only having more and more disgusting silliness to puke over ... sadly however, this experience coupled with what i get out here in the rWorld, makes me absolutely cringe to consider seeking out something different/"better".

    maybe one of these millennium "those people formerly known as Africans" will decide they've had enough and grow up to be about something ... ... besides agents for their slave masters ... or weak blind dumb "religionists" ...

    Sigh








    Actually, this is an example of posing a skewed point of view for some agenda. The actual documentary is quite balanced. It deals with a lot of lies, myths, and stereotypes brothers have suffered thru the decades to put them down. It shows the source and the truth that refutes them. For example, the lie that there are more brothers in prison than in universities/colleges

    So, in short, dont judge by this poor portrayal

    Yes, This man, Janks Morton, is the same person who made the DOCUMENTARY "What Black Men Think.

    And, yes, Mr. Morton shattered that prison/college stereotype and many others in "What Black Men Think."

    "Why He Hates You" is a BOOK written by Mr. Morton.

    I have not read this book myself, but I would imagine that Mr. Morton is not speaking of ALL Black men nor ALL Black men who were raised by single mothers.

    But I would also imagine that there are SOME to whom this book does apply.

    I HAVE THIS BOOK..." WHY HE HATES YOU " ....AND I HAVE READ IT...

    IN THE VERY LEAST , IT WIDENS PERSPECTIVE...AND INVITES BLACK MEN TO LOOK MUCH DEEPER IN THE MIRROR....

    JANKS MORTON IS GETTING AT THE VERY CORE OF THE EUROPEAN-TYPE OF " ISMS " THAT HAVE INFECTED BLACK BOYS & BLACK MEN THOROUGHLY...

    I ALSO HAVE HIS GROUND-BREAKING DOCUMENTARY FROM 2007 , " WHAT BLACK MEN THINK " ....WHICH BREAKS DOWN A LOT OF FALSEHOODS THAT MENTALLY CRIPPLE BLACK PEOPLE EVERYDAY....IT ALSO REVEALS SOME TRUTHS THAT WERE HIDDEN QUITE WELL....

    I HAVE OFFERED REPEATEDLY TO SEND OUT COPIES OF THIS DOCUMENTARY TO ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED......THAT OFFER STILL STANDS....

    YOUR INTENTIONS ARE APPRECIATED SIS. CHERRYBLOSSOM...

    And THANK YOU, Bro. Warrior.

    Sadly, so many of our people will discount something, "whole-cloth" without even finding out about it.

    And, sadly, many Black men will discount something, especially if a WOMAN said it or introduced it, as I did with this thread, even though the BOOK is written by a BLACK MAN.

    So, I thank you for actually reading this book and having the OPEN MIND and MATURITY to accept it as Mr. Morton wrote it and my own posting of it.
