O calls out m.i.a. black fathers

this is a cross-post from Aunt Jemima's Revenge . i love Professor Tracey's fire. if you haven't visited her blog you should.

i have been waiting for O to say something relevant to my existence. i have been praying that he would make a stand and in doing so encourage other brothers to do the same. well he finally did it. check out Barack Obama Calls Out Missing In Action Black Fat...

do you think this will back fire? are black men able to hear constructive criticism from anyone? is anyone else sick with the fact that quite a few black men must have folks tell them they should respect themselves enough to provide for their women and children? do you think this call out will make a difference in the big picture?

share your thoughts if you feel so inclined. i enjoy different perspectives.

self love~ self acceptance~ self respect

Barack was right, and he spoke a lot of things about our expectation of ourselves. If people don't like it too bad. BET are making effort money, Lil Wayne sold a million copies of his album and we are happy about them, they are keeping it real, my eye, the are a bunch of sellouts. Barack Obama continue to speak out!
