Article was too long to lost, but glancing over it...I think the reporter wrote a balanced article.
I commented on MY take after reading. the article. I can form my own opinion., and dont need to be a spoonfed takes. I posted the link to the full article for others who wanted form their own opinions on the article.Remember when democrats were using strippers to appeal to black men during the 2020 election?..... If you didnt watch Dr. Johnson's take, just say it...
Dr. T Hasan Johnson founded and runs the Black Male institute.... He is one the first people to listen to on issues regarding black men.... But as per usual, any chance you types take to denigrate black men, you take them....I commented on MY take after reading. the article.

You're confusing me with a natural born follower who watches youtube videos to know what to think.
Your paranoia and lack of self confidence is why you probably didn't read the article yourself. Either before or after watching the video. Apparently the Dr.'s opinion on it is all you need to hear.Dr. T Hasan Johnson founded and runs the Black Male institute.... He is one the first people to listen to on issues regarding black men....

As for your opinion, its misguided...
I know, so leave your subtle black male hatred out of the sub-forum....Your paranoia and lack of self confidence is why you probably didn't read the article yourself. Either before or after watching the video. Apparently the Dr.'s opinion on it is all you need to hear.
Again, because I can think for myself I read the thread title, located the column, read it, and formed my own opinion about the validity and balance. Her opinion and take are hers, but she interviewed and quoted Black angelenos on different sides of the issue.
Not sure how long you've been here, but there were threads made about the buffoonish campaign ads that you referenced. You will see the full discussion of those ads, who funded them, and which segment of young Black men they were targeted towards.
And you will also see, if you search, the discussion of ads, proposed policies,,political discussions targeting different segments of Black men voters.
This isn't TLR.
A man quoted in the column expressed a similar sentiment.To suggest its sexism and not roughly sixty years of democratic policy that has ultimately been the undoing of black America that black men are not voting for a black female democratic candidate now is nonsense. This piece clearly has an agenda given post-CRM history; having read about the reason for certain plays during the mid 60s and early 70s, I wouldn't vote democrat either after seeing the effects of doing so this long. It hasn't yielded any positive long-term results that have strengthened the black community to act in ways other groups do. Doesn't mean all of a sudden vote republican, but what do you do when you realize you've always been between a rock and a hard place?
It's been a day late and a dollar short, and that was by design.
What was the reason for those government assistance programs to start with? Having read books on the background of some of these programs being the brainchild of democratic policies and based on the historical significance of blackness in this country, specifically black men and their relationship with black women like I said, the author clearly has an agenda. It's not just about working but access to work.A man quoted in the column expressed a similar sentiment.
Some were like Willie, who told me he used to vote regularly, but stopped because he doesn’t believe a politician — any politician — can solve his problems.
“You can work and your wife can or your child can work. The dogs can work. The rats and the roaches even working, and you still cannot afford to stay in a studio apartment in South Los Angeles,” he told me, taking a break from selling used DVDs and books out of his minivan.
He continued, his voice rising: “And when was the last time you heard a politician say Black man? When they think of the Black community, think of Black women or Black children, they don’t really think of us.”
Willie ran through a list of government assistance programs, from tax credits to food benefits for infants, arguing that they primarily benefit women. Meanwhile, single Black men are disproportionately homeless and politicians “don’t care.” This is why, he speculated, that Black men vote differently than Black women.
“But that’s OK,” he spat, shaking his head in resigned anger.
