I look forward to reading you doing some of that here, addressing Brothers on this issue, for it needs to be done at every turn ... by Brothers.lol, no I didn't see that last quote. Actually I address it a LOT. In fact, I dated a women who had two children and I loathed the idea that a man could have children and not be in their lives. The very thought of this man made me angry and I had never met him. Black men have NO excuse for abandoning their children. Even if they don't get along with the mother the child has NOTHING to do with that, it is still a person with feelings who needs him in their lives. I lost respect for the mother after we broke up because she would rather not be with me at the time because of my "lack of motivation" even though I would have done anything to take care of her and her kids and would never do anything to hurt her or them. Just thinking of all that gets me angry.
It really has been a pleasure. Thanks!
