What would you say is the actual percentage of black men who go overseas to live the single life...

:stopitslime:
It's not that common,but it's becoming normalized. Hood dudes are going to DR and Brazil and putting it on social media when it used to be shameful to get girls overseas

Facts.... on my street my son is damn near 5 years younger than this one white kid on our street, and I know his father is a stereotype based dude, and I never see him with his kid doing anything. I had to teach him how to throw a football. My son is under 10 and was light years ahead of the kid when it came to basic athletic and academic shyt.

They not in the home leading their women and children in cohesiveness. Getting your kid for the weekend isn’t sufficient. Our ppl need to do better. Don’t know what it would take.
There is no "our people" about this issue. Individuals have different standards, values, and expectations about things.
Because of that, different dudes will look at the same picture and see something different.
The Chris Rock joke about "I take care if my kids" applies here.
However well intended this thread is, a YT video with Bible verses isn't going to change a person's personal values, or stop the juelzing/reaching that has already started.

Because we already face societal hurdles and barriers, these varied views of fatherhood/parenting ends up hurting the individual Black children who are coming up.

True as this is, because no nation can become a power without a stable family at its root, too many of us adhere to individualism. The principle is going to get picked apart in earnest to avoid the real issue instead of dealing with the issue earnestly. To do better means coming back to a common, shared identity. Can't do that when we always inviting other people to the cookout and jumping the fence over petty differences.

The real problem is that we have the kids when too young (16-22).

Most men at that age aren't going be ready/want to raise a child unless the proper infrastructure is already in place.

Cacs have that luxury we do not.

I was just about to say this…



The real problem is black folks don’t get married. 🤷🏾‍♂️

I think things are better now with our generation.
But when we were growing up the father issue was a thing.
