All of this while working and going to school. I am also a single mother. I still won’t bash black men because without the strong black men around me such as my brothers and stepfather helping the whole way, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.

You keep putting it as a black man against black woman situation when it’s not it’s a black community problem. The mentality of we don’t need to help is destructive in itself. These are our brothers, sons, uncles, etc. If we can’t help each other as a community how do we expect to grow? Fact: 87% of black males have been to prison. For the first time in our history last year, more AA males have gone to college than the prison system. Prison incarceration increased the likelihood of mental disease in several studies. Black power black history. We as a community need to address these situations because if we don’t help them who will. Maybe the police who gun them down in the streets or the judge who gives them 10 yrs for simple drug possession or the jobs that won’t hire them. If black women are leading in all of these situations even though we face them, why can’t we say give me your hand and let me guide because I understand exactly what you are facing and we have to overcome this together as a community. Stop bashing our men what other race do you see doing that.
