Man. This one is long. No apologies. Listen!
If you have a son…If you are raising a black boy, you need to listen and share with other folks that are raising boys!
In short…raising a black boy…in this day and time…is different. And I’m not sure if “society” (whatever that is) is primed to engage with black. whole. sons; black boys that are confident, smart, intelligent, athletic, strong, handsome, leaders, etc. Society knows how to deal w/ black athletes (kinda)….they know how to deal w/ nerds…they know how to deal w/ thugs. But what about boys that have a collection of strong and amazing qualities. Does this current society even recognize these things coming from boys?
What say you?
