First of all, we as black men have to decide that we actually care about them and that it is in fact our generational duty to provide them with a foundation for a better tomorrow.

Secondly, spend quality time with them teaching and demonstrating by example how to control their emotional impulses. If I male can not control what he feels and surrenders to his every impulse, no matter the legitimacy of the provocation, he will never enjoy peace, serenity or success. Society can not and will not tolerate males emoting without constraint....it's dangerous.

Third, we must divorce them from the belief that the only education that matters takes place within the walls of some accredited institutions of higher learning. Encourage them to secure their degrees but also make them aware of the power of all knowledge, be it self taught or empirically acquired, and it's many utilities in life.

And in the interest of brevity, lastly, if we don't as a collective, build an economic infrastructure with institutional creation of wealth that will service and protect our collective interest, we are wasting our time. We have been effectively neutralized by our fragmentation. We collectively possess the resources, but we lack the unity and the collective will to sacrifice in the interest of the greater good.

Economics and resources are at the root of many of our and their problems. We can eviscerate a great deal of the nihilism that plagues so many young brothers if we are able to replace this nihilism with a future of possibility; a future where they can secure a reasonable share of society's resources enabling them to live a dignified existence as black men.

You intellectually bottom feeding white boys are convinced that here among us, you can be a big fish in a little pond. And because you contribute nothing of real value to the white populace at large, you consider yourselves neo-overseers on your imaginary plantations. Of course you do this because the 5% white intelligentsia allows you unskilled laborers and non critical thinkers to claim a share in the credit of what they create in exchange for you guarding the gates; so you hang around and harass us to earn your keep.

Just as a white illiterate, you speak of Africa being fcked up while you ignored how fcked up Greece, Spain etc., are; where they have near fifty percent unemployment, where people are dumpster diving for food to stay alive. You are too brainwashed to realized that when your utility expires, they will caste you aside like an animal carcass to make place for more productive members of society. If you are lucky, they may deport your dizzy azz to some remote country where all of the citizens are lobotomized; where you may yet serve a purpose. Dumb azz Whiteboy!

Than why are many so concerned about the future of AA's?? What about the future of other groups in third world countries who are suffering from hunger, diseases, violence, abuse?? No one seems to care about their future.

Greece is fckd up now. Africa has been fckd up always. Wherever blacks live it is fckd up. In every country they live in. No matter where you go, the most crime, and poverty is in the black neighborhood.

Awww come on, don't be shy! Everywhere you white boys have touched ashore with your white supremacy, white crony capitalism and the looting of other people's resources is fcked up now. Only now, It's finally getting back to it's point of origin because you are left with no one other than yourselves to fck over. Truth and facts are on my side, while fantasy and wishful thinking is on yours....I guess!

Damn, your ignorance knows no bounds! Our money? WTF are you talking about? And America has never fought a war for the altruistic reason of helping some distressed country or people....really, you can't be this dumb! No sense in sacrificing any IQ cells explaining this to you because you clearly lack the requisite intelligence to understand it, so I will just leave you to running on your hamster wheel. Unbelievable!

Because an emotional negro despises it when facts are presented about them.
