There is a serious problem for young black men in contemporary America. It is actually worse than potentially going to prison for being involved with the sale of drugs, and or gangs. It is the lack of some black men in this country to take any kind of interest in the children they help bring into a world they know better than others can be very tough, and unfair when it comes to opportunities to improve ones financial situation.
they have no problem calling the mothers of their offspring “baby mommas” with no real interest in being a positive role model for the next generation. The government has a lot to do with this problem by making it possible for the mothers to sit at home, and collect benefits paid for by those who will work.
I know the pain of not having a father or just a father in my life when I was young. All of the men I saw who were responsible providers for their kids were white men on the TV shows of the sixties. It was not until Bill Cosby was on a television show that at least showed how a black man could possibly provide for his family. My only regret that it had to be a comedy show to be put on the air.
We as men should be there for our kids, it is just he right thing to do. Our sons and daughters are waiting for the real men in their lives to step up, and finally be role models. It is asking a lot but so what, just do it.
