in some way shape or form every religion and deity talks about karma
you know men i know that its hard out here for you,
i DO see your struggle.
i know that its not easy growing up as a BLACK man in a white mans world
i know A LOT has changed
A GREAT DEAL
thanks to our predecessors
and all of the people who have lived and given their lives for some of the privileges we have today
I see alot more prominent black men taking advantage of their opportunities that's good!!!
enroll in school, take that job, work hard
never forget family!
but what i really wanted to address is the fact that even though
I see our men and boys learning more, making more, etc.
I dont see any improvement in the way the black men are treating their women.
in fact in my opinion i see a decline in the respect that the future and present younger generations are treating the women in their lives. Including mom and grandma.
I see more and more men living with their mothers into their 30's and 40's its an epidemic that even the white house and capital have addressed.
the question everyone is asking is what is happening to our men that they are unemployed or under employed and still living at home with their mothers.
I have 2 sons myself i would do ANYTHING for them
sell my soul...
but i would never want to hinder them.
i want to know when i die,
when im gone
that my sons are going to be able to handle themselves
WHATEVER the situation
i want them to be survivors
and i want them to do it WITHOUT me
or outside of me at least
because if i feed them from a silver spoon their whole lives
when its time for me to go, im gonna be very worried about how they will make it without me
alot of the mothers of these men that are among the ones still living with their moms
i wonder do they have this same worry
i know that they do it out of love and concern
but in my opinion they hinder their sons a great deal
because one day they are gonna have to live life alone
without mom to fall back on
and its RUFF!
i had to learn that the hard way with my grandmother
she did everything for me and when she passed i felt like the world had died with her
i had no idea how to function
it was very hard on me
but i've always been a survivor and im making it
but only because i had people guiding me the right way
i always knew one day i would only have me to depend on
so i always live my life depending on no one
i have some coo people i can call in a bind
but i like to deal with everything alone if i can
anyways men just please value the women you are blessed to have in your life
but dont depend on them
women carry the weight of the world on their shoulders
we need our men to be strong
head of household
we need protection
we need unconditional love
you want your mother's and daughters to be valued beyond measure
they have to have the best!
so why not give that to them yourself?
GIVE your mom the best of yourself
GIVE your girlfriend or your wife the BEST of you
life is short so give it the BEST
leave something behind after you're gone
i dont know when men starting becoming scared of hard work
scared to be the bread winner
the decision maker
know your role young men, and boys
stand up strong and play your role
because we are losing so many men
if our men dont start contributing back to life
everything will be destroyed
its a path of destruction
dont be afraid of higher education men
dont be afraid of work
dont be afraid of commitment
dont be afraid of the true life GOD intended for you
ask GOD for clarity on your role in life and it will be clear to you
I have faith in you boys and men!
i KNOW you have it in you, to be the best you can be
and when you love yourself, want the best for yourself and the ones in your life
you start to value every aspect of it.
even the people in your life
because i tell you its a lonely lonely world out there
so go to college
get a GREAT career for yourself
get a nice apartment
or a house
start that family and take care of it!!!
celebrate the holidays with your loved ones!
and see how rich your life will become
see how many times you smile
you have to put in hard work to get things back from life
but the rewards are truly great if you commit to it
