Qualified, yet Single: Why Good Men Remain Single


Bad, Black Attitude

Said there was something wrong with us--
got off the black bus.

Nasty attitude,
this man can be so rude!

Critical of others,
hanging out with frat brothers.

Smiles on their faces,
shares their disgraces,
frequents white places.

He curses when he's mad,
his children look so sad,
he runs around in the latest fad.

Bad, black attitude,
what's up with this angry dude?
Took after his mother,
puts on a show for Big Brother.

Know what I know,
because I peeped his show.
Try to go toe to toe,
looked like a brotha on the down low!

I wish I could speak positively,
but what comes out is negativity.

Bad, black attitude don't get you very far,
you can't be a star,
people don't want you in their car.

If I told him once, I told him twice,
you have to be nice,
to get cheese from the mice.

No Godly Vision + No Righteous Action = No Progress

If I have yet to envision what my future looks like and I have no supportive group around me who can at least guide me toward the light, then what am I to become?  Do I take up my reigns and fight solo?  Do I move beyond my circumstances and create a plan that sustains me? 

We, black people, don't often think deeply for we fear the future while running from the past.  We don't easily forgive when people hurt us and we believe that somehow we are empowered by our stubborn ways and tough talk.  We are a prideful people, but at times very foolish.  We entertain ourselves during times when we should be in deep meditation and fasting from the pleasures of this world while noting our failures and listing ways we should improve.  One can claim that he serves an Almighty God but if he does then why is his life in shambles?  We brag about things we do not understand while praising idol worshipping leaders who have fallen down on knees behind closed doors and who have allowed despicable acts to occur in the names of their dark gods.  If he, she or "it" has a price tag, we consider "it" to be successful, admirable, wonderful, and the one who wears "it" accomplished.

But I say to you my friends, that it is not what a man wears, who he claims to believe in, where he lives, or what he drives that defines him, but it is what comes out of his mouth that reveals the soul.  If he speaks as if he knows, when he really doesn't know things such as:  life purpose, relationship advice, spiritual guidance, and parenting, he is deceiving the hearers while using words he has studied in books to disguise his misdeeds.

Do you know who you are?  Do you know what your calling is or have you created a calling and asked your Creator to approve it?  How long does one have to walk around in circles like the Israelites setting out on a journey that should have only been 40 days that turned out to be 40 years!

I write this on the 40th year of my life and I recognize that for far too long I have permitted the ignorant, the foolish, the liar, the deceiver, the cheat, the crazy, and even the sexy to advise me on things that have little to do with my life and everything to do with theirs.  Its as if they were recruiting me to walk in darkness with them, but I have long been called to be free and to walk in the light. 

What is truly important, before we close our eyes, is what our heavenly Father has convicted us on during our waking hours--that thing that keeps tugging at your heart, popping into your mind, causing you to have an instant attitude because you have yet to take care of business God's way. 

We are responsible for us, we are on assignment to come up higher and direct others to do the same.
Do what you must to live a righteous life, without excuse, while living in a good and evil spirit-filled world.

May God bless you for reading this.

Black Love - Should be more than what can you do for me?

Love has been taught in many African American families, but for some, it is experienced in ways that are unhealthy emotionally, physically and spiritually.  It looks something like this, "If you do for me and I do for you; therefore we love one another.  But if you stop doing for me and I do the same to you, then we don't love one another."  Huh!?

Case in point, when was the last time you had a misunderstanding with someone who refused to help you with something or didn't do what you asked in the way that you wanted?  What happened?  Did you distance yourself from him or her for a time and then acted as if "we still cool"?    Did you badmouth this person to others?  What about threats made about never doing anything for that person again?  Meanwhile, there was no consideration of what might have caused him or her to disappoint you.  Most often, our people take this sort of thing personally.

This distorted view of what love is and how it is supposed to behave is what has kept many of our people from experiencing good personal and professional relationships.  Some hate their partners and their jobs, but often pretend to love both.  Why?  Because they were angered far too many times due to something said or done that didn't meet expectations, so now they will not permit themselves to love.

Too often the unsuspecting partner, boss, child, relative, or any other individual who is close enough to the loveless individual will pick up on something being wrong, but won't really think too deeply about it.  However, later when tempers are exploding, the passive aggressive, narcissistic type will reveal, "I didn't like when you...I don't love...I hate..."  Meanwhile, you are standing in this person's presence wondering, "What happened?  What did I do?  What did I say?"  A person who lacks understanding when it comes to loving someone will leave you feeling confused, mentally and emotionally drained, walking on eggshells trying to figure out what you said or did..."  If this person doesn't feel like needs are being met, what he or she calls, "love" goes into hiding until you can make him or her happy again.

This is what it's like for some loveless African Americans, who are frustrated about unmet needs.  "My wife didn't do...mama didn't do...daddy wasn't boss don't care!"  Throw in a bias, negative attitude with such a person and he or she isn't the least bit interested in loving anyone including those who don't look like him or her--no matter how much he or she pretends, "I love all people."  Sure.

"What is an Elite Man?"

There Must Be Something Special About You

Up today,
down tomorrow.
A world with so much sorrow,
but it doesn't touch me,
because I have two eyes, and I can see!

Listened to a brown bird tweet His song,
uplifted me when I was wrong.
Moved me to do what's right,
now all I have is you in my sight.

You see there is something special about you.
You know how to do you.
When you settled in God's holy place, He saw your face.
Dried up tears and took away your fears!

The world is mad, attempts to make you sad.
But you have every reason to be glad.

Know there is something unique about you,
haters don't like what you do, don't want you to be true!

But what they don't know, I know.
You have a single foe,
yet he comes in many forms,
eats up the flesh like worms.

The dark god takes people and throws them out,
quiets their mouths, so they don't shout.

Jealous spirit doesn't want you speaking good of others,
he doesn't want you uplifting any brothers.

Uses you to sow bad seed,
recruits you to take the lead

Enemies see what we don't see in us,
watches us like people waiting for the bus.

Studies our every move, then acts as if
he's a player that can soothe.

I figured it out one day, when I
trusted God to reveal Satan's play.

If you don't know who you are,
then you don't go far
ain't no sense in wishing upon any star!

Big names born into favor,
they savor what they don't understand,
touched by the devil's man.

But know that there is something special about you,
there are many called, but God's chosen are few.

B Howard is the son of Singer Miki Howard- Who do you think his father is?

Don't be distracted by the fake company, logo, DNA, etc. in the news surrounding the story of B. Howard, the suspected son of Michael Jackson.  These things are designed to manipulate your thinking, so that you don't see the obvious. It happens far too much in media! 

When deceptive tactics are used during mass media interviews, for example placing one's sunglasses over the eyes while sitting indoors, the public is not able to view the eyes; therefore you can't read body language so well. Remember the old adage, "The eyes are the windows to the soul?"  When celebrities/entertainers have something to hide--it is information for them to know, and you to find out--they have their options: vehemently deny what is being assumed/asked, neither confirm or deny, share a partial truth and leave out crucial information, balantly lie, create a false argument, or mislead/distract by talking about something else.

Being that many alternative media reporters believe Michael Jackson was murdered, it would make sense not to divulge whether this young man is in fact his son.  It would also make sense not to want to be referred to as the "son of..." a famous relative, because the entertainer would not want to walk in that person's shadow all of his or her career.

Special thanks goes out to Pearl Jr. Documentary Filmmaker for sharing!



The Story of Your Enslavement

12 Years a Slave and similar movies didn't come out for nothing!  Do you get the feeling that someone or a group wants you back in your ancestor's subservient role?

In the video, the speaker says, "To see the farm is to leave it."  Many of my ancestors worked fields.  Some were slaves, but others would have been considered "free."  Decades ago many were land owners and some still are to date.  I will tell you that those who eventually left the farming lifestyle behind recognized that it was nothing more than something that reminded them of a difficult past; therefore, they wanted nothing to do with it.  However, when my ancestors' children left their farming backgrounds and found alternative ways to make money, they somehow found themselves back in slavery.  It wasn't the kind like we saw in the movie, Roots, but it showed up in other ways.  There were the controlling spouses that worked them like slaves, the racist bosses who talked to them like slaves, the bitter adult sons and daughters who were mentally trained to be the white man's future slaves, and others who put them back into emotional and/or physical bondage as if they lived on a plantation.  How does this happen you might ask?  I personally believe that unless a man/woman recognizes one's own short-comings and sees that he or she still has the mentality of a slave, he or she will never be free.  Someone, who seeks to obtain the title of "Master," will seek the weak-minded out to be their next slave.  The video is a white man's perspective on how enslavement comes into being for all.  He compares it to animals on a farm.  Be enlightened.
