going above and beyond

I like that you shared your point of view. I also agree with Bro. @jamesfrmphilly, you must be careful not to generalize your comments to ALL Black men and Black women. But if what you described has been your experience, including that of other Black men that you know or are in conversations with, it's a valid point. To me, it displays that some of our people are functioning as victims of mind control enforced by a dominant and perpetually racist system. Some form of intervention is necessary to break the mental chains of these people so that the behavior, which I don't think too many of us will agree is healthy, will stop.The truth is the truth, and men today ain't about nor are all that interested in marriage, etc. It's about hitting it, and moving on, etc. It's hard to meet a black woman today that doesn't have a child or children and have been In multiple relationships, etc. Which often includes being married several times or more, etc. Most are having to raise their children alone or by multiple stepfathers, etc. Hell, with all these children by so many different fathers creates a lot of different families, aka: kinfolk, etc. While it's true that many a black man does very little if that, for his biological children, most often they brag of the fact that they have fathered so many children by as many baby mama's etc., this was back then yesterday, and is still happening today, etc. When you've met a young, lets say 19-24 year old single on public services, etc., black woman with (4-5) kids you will understand what I am saying, etc. It's about kids having kids, etc. Yet it's also true that many women do succeed raising kids that finish high school, go off to college, etc. many go into the military, etc. Yes, these black women are to be applauded, etc. What a great job, etc. But the issue still remains, as young women are getting played and screwed, by these young black men that have no intentions of marriage nor remaining with them, etc. Let the truth be told!
But, the challenge here is with data and what the data shows. Most of here know, and you might know this as well, that whenever demographic data is reported from so-called reputable sources, Black people are always the worst off in every category of what's being reported. It's an historical pattern. The danger is if we accept the data across the board and without a certain level of skepticism because we KNOW that data can be manipulated and skewed toward the reporters bias caused by racist views. To accept data without some ability to question it, reflects, I believe, a sort of blind obedience which is the danger for us because when WE repeat it, sometimes it proves that we have been co-opted into their mind control program.
