I was told that I changed upon getting into a serious relationship. My friend was there as long as I was involved with so-called relationships and I was always hanging out with her. The moment I got involved in a real relatioship and started spending time with him (as I was working a second job and going to school for my master's) she caught an attitude and put everything on him as to say that he was the reason our friendship changed. He had nothing to do with it. Now, what was my best friend… Continue

LORD OF THE FLIES!
Thats what our communities have become.
As in this classic, with no adult presence, the kids will resort to being savages. Their own ideas of order or disorder, which is chaos will rule. Intelligence is out the window, only the violent will be in control.
NEED ADULT PRESENCE.
Back in the day, there were grown folk , and older teens and young adults on the street each day,by the school , on the porch just out to watch over things.

Life takes from the Takers & gives to the Givers
Most of my life I have been a Taker. I have taken time, money, energy, and even knowledge from unsuspecting marks. I was taught to “get mine” from the time I was nine and so I did just that. I overcame adversity; I climbed over hurdles like an Olympic Athlete. If you weren’t for me then you were against me. In short I took no prisoners.
I climbed through every ceiling that was ever placed over the top of me. I… Continue

I want to thank you for not being there on the eve of my birth, and the absence of your presence for all it was worth.
I want to thank you for not comforting me, when tears were the only words I could speak.
For all of the times when you were totally out of reach.
I want to thank you for leaving a mother alone and for all of the empty dial tones on the other side of the phone.
Thank you for all of your empty promises, and countless… Continue

Imagine if all the energy that single people spent looking for a good partner were used for something else. Maybe career, education, personal development . . .
The family structure is failing. Fewer and fewer compatible partners are finding each other. The prospects may be dismal for our generation, but they’re likely to get substantially worse for your nieces, nephews, sons and daughters.
One possible solution could be Arranged… Continue

It broke my heart when I saw this video. There are no words to describe the horror I feel and my God, what this child's family is going through. I have a 10 year old son, I can't begin to imagine the state of mind I would be in if something like this happened to him.... We have to do something... encourage your children to talk to you about what's going on in their lives, their schools, everything. Get involved in your children's activities. Get to know their friends, the friends' parents. Get… Continue

Mike and George, the problem with these killings is that our children are overloaded with the act of murder each and every day. These young black men are just acting out on what they see and learn in the movies, on TV and in the video games. Have you noticed how they act when they are playing these video games. What is their reaction when you turn it off? The after effects are dramatic. I know men in their 30's and 40's still playing these addictive games; it's a hobby they say!!! Why is it… Continue

WHILE WE ARE ALL DSICUSSING THE VIOLENCE AMONG TODAY,S YOUTH. THERE IS FACTOR THAT WE OFTEN OVERLOOK. DERRION WAS A HONOR STUDENT ON HIS WAY HOME FROM SCHOOL. HE WAS ATTACKED AND DIED IN A BRUTAL ASSAULT. HE WAS ATTACKED WITH A BOARD. THIS CLEARLY SHOWS PREMIDITATION. AFTER BEING KNOCKED TO THE GROUND HE WAS STOMPED. THIS CLEARLY SHOWS INTENT. WITH ALL OF THE FACTORS THIS IS CLEARLY FIRST DEGREE MURDER. WILL WE ALLOW THE DA,S OFFICE TO DEVALUE HIS LIFE BY NOT STICKING TO CHARGES THAT THE… Continue

The nightly news spells out crime and more crime in the black communities each and every day. I often wonder how white America see us robbing and killing one another (and them too). I'm personally ashamed of our actions and the image we portray to the world. The world is able to look beyond our great accomplishments in the areas of business, sports, and entertainment, because of the daily messages of violence and ignorance that we send. Whose fault is it? It's every parent and adult that won't… Continue

Mike and George - I hear you constantly talking about where the fathers are when we have teenagers taking the wrong path in life. I am waiting for the show that takes these mothers to task for having kids without the support system to properly raise them. Why are so many women having kids with men they are not married too? Men that have proved themselves to be deadbeats men and then are surprised when they turn out to also be deadbeat dads. I know marriage does not guarantee that a father will… Continue

Michael Baisden, God is truly calling you to a higher plane! You galvanized us around the Jena 6 putting you in a leadership position. Now You are the One who can motivate and inspire our men to actual work and take back our communities! Jessie Jackson, won't do it, Al Sharpen can't do it, the NAACP is unwilling to do it but Michael Baisden has the desire, drive and willingness to do it! Do His will, MB!

Someone asked me what is it we are not doing??
My reply back to her!!
Not showing boys what it means to be a man in person. We all talk alot about what we should do on TV and other places but the people that need to hear the talk are not on the same station or in the conversation!!
This boy was just walking down the street and bam!
Mama and Daddy say they cannot pay for extra school stuff that will keep kids busy but they have… Continue

Beware of debt – while this should be a no-brainer, but giving our current economic climate
people have piled on so much debt it just seems it’s a way of life. We become immune and
have succumbed to the bad diaper syndrome. Meaning, the parent knows the baby needs to be
changed, but just ignores the child until both has had enough. Well, the same applies here, we
are feeling good when we buy our stuff and knew we really could not afford it in the… Continue

First I'd like to say that this is not to bash or degrade the mother of my child. She gave me the greatest gift that any man could ask or wish for. She gave me a son. So I have not one bad thing to say about her. I have my own planks in my eye. The issue remains that I haven't seen my son since the day before Father Day 2009. The reason being that my son missed a couple of days at a free learning camp during the summer. Before this inability to talk to, let alone see my son, my ex and I had a… Continue

Our parent and grand parents worked 8 hrs came home washed cook cleaned and did homework we do do that I need people to understand that we have to get that back. Sitting down with children not only helps them but keeps us sharp as well. No matter how we do it lets get our hands dirty lets get in the mud and the water and see how deep this rabbit h*** really goes. We as role models need to set the tone if the bar is 85 we set it at 115 and the nest will set it a 200 but if we set the bar at 0… Continue
