Black men your children need you to be a father figure in their lives. They need you to teach them the basic foundations of life. With fathers in their lives your children won't have to turn to crime and gangs for their father figures. Don't abandon your children, their futures depend on you! Don't repeat what was done to you! You should be ashamed of yourselves if you abandon your children!

Ummm...wut.

I thought this just applied to fathers in general. In fact, I know it does.

Well, I'm black, and my son is a great lawyer, and my daughter is a very promising doctor. And we are very close, I paid for their schools. So, who does this post apply to?

Regrettably, I hold my breath, and agree with Distinctly on this one. Why just Black. I know tons of white fathers who have abandoned their children and wives.
One worked for me, and his wife called my yesterday saying that she, and his three kids, have not seen him for over two months. She asked me to borrow $1,000. I loaned the money to her.
So don't give me that shit that only Black men do it. And if you are Black, maybe the reason he skipped is because of you. Maybe he deplore you so much, that he can't stand to be around you, not the kid.
Only the flip side of the coin, he just may be a sorry bum, which again, points a finger at you because you laid up with the bum and had kids.

It's good to see some solid arguments on this one.

Well, shit. I guess we really do agree on something. hahaha

I've taken a look at your community. I look at a huge number of black men who don't work, then I see a huge number of them not being there for their kids, then I see there being more black men in some phase of the corrections system, and I make connections here. Deal with your own community before you point fingers at us, RT.

My family business has hired whites since the 1950's. My father put food on the table of white families until the day he died. Then, we took it over and do the same. Whites depend on our family business for support. We hire lots of white trash too. My family is superior to whites. They depend on us.

Really? I heard that shining shoes was pretty much a one-person job, boy.

Well, some of that is because a few of them, rednecks with attitudes, refused to address me as "sir." I do not tolerate employees trying to call me by my first name. That is inexcusable.

Service has never marked people as inferior. Disservice might, but service? No. If that were the case, then you are literally saying that your slaved ancestors were inferior to whites. That is both horribly erred and incredibly solipsistic of you.

Shame on you for exhibiting such elementary biases.

If you see somebody as a human being, then you should respect their formalities as you do your own.

And the racists are whom? Believe it or not whites and blacks get along quite well. You hate that fact and want to create something that is just not there.

Shit, RT, I'd call you by your first name if I felt like it, and there wouldn't be jack you could do about it. I'd even assign you a nickname, and it'd be yours whether you like it or not.

I thought I had slipped into an intellect vacuum. Thank you for reassuring me that intelligent people are still traversing these forums.

It's time that clear headed and objective people, who are the silent majority, speak out against what is just wrong. All BS aside, most of the crap out there is unbelievable.
