The few who promote their sons often do so because 1) they only have sons (who they raise like girls anyway), and 2) they aim to turn their sons into the kind of men they've always idolized. Many of the mothers who take the second path will try to make a Frankenstein-like amalgamation of the perfect man based on the faults of men that they've previously dated. These often conflicting traits look good at first glance (that's all the mother wanted, something to show her friends) but often result in the kind of man that the mother herself would never have actually dated. Should a woman actually show interest in the son the mother will often try to run her off. This type of woman often sees her sons as cattle to be slaughtered by whichever woman pays her the most tribute, or donated to her community of like-minded women similar to how a rich alumnus might give back to their alma mater. I've had many conversations in black male only groups about this subject but have never seen anything like this public before. I really hope that this book goes mainstream.
Black men and their younger counterparts will do and try anything to dodge responsibility for their lives, pain, and anger. This is the latest attempt at buck passing.
First, it was the white man. He was the reason black men couldn't get ahead in the world. He was the reason they were dropping out of high school in droves, dropping babies with every woman they came in contact with, cracked out their communities (which are often violent slums and ghettos) and abused black women/girls.
The white man and his oppression were to blame for the mental illness affecting black men and boys. There was a conspiracy to destroy black boys. His oppression (which somehow or the other completely eroded black men/boys of all responsibility for their evil actions let the NAACP or some other black male identified organization tell it) was responsible for the anger and crippled mentality of black men/boys.
Two people shot all of the above to hell: Bill Cosby (love that man) and Barack Obama. Both said or showed there are no more excuses for mediocre behavior, misdirected anger, self-pity, etc. Some black men and boys got the memo...some, like this author, ignored it.
Now according to this author it's the fault of single black mothers who find themselves doing a job that WASN'T MADE FOR ONE PERSON. They are the reason we have so many misogynist black boys and men walking around. I don't buy it.
At some point we ALL must take control and responsibility for our lives.Read more ›
As a mother, I don't want to be the typhoid Mary of guilt, shame, pain, and rejection. I want to uplift and love Black men and boys so that they can be nourished for their everyday struggles.
Great also for making sure that you don't pass the pain and anger on to your daughters.
