What Can Be Done to Uplift These Broke-Down Brothas?

mencryonthefloor Please don’t say these marginalized and broke-down brothas need a male role model – because having a Black President with a beautiful wife and wonderful daughters maintain 8 years in the White House is as black man role model you can get. And don’t say they need to fly to Brazil and find a cutie Brazilian chick that can treat him better than an African-American woman because he saves up $3,000 and go to Brazil and end up fist fighting another African-American brotha over Brazilian whores at a Brazilian whorehouse. Look, if transgender prostitutes in Thailand got Craigslist ads explicitly offering services but saying they don’t want to meet up with black men, then you know how rejected these brothas are in this world. But we have to be honest here, the young generation of brothas brought all of this upon themselves. Celebrated Media Degrading Black Women. These brothas enjoyed songs and videos calling African-American women bitches and hoes. He celebrated strippers and butt models posting pics online over a sista he grew up with that probably liked him. He never once considered how a sista feel about the misogynist culture that he is celebrating around her and he wants her to bend over and let him hit it from the back – that’s all he wants out of a sista nowadays instead of be a lover and provider. Failed to Get Skills and Stability. These brothas failed to handle their own manhood business of getting skills that pays the bills and provide stability to maintain his woman and his family. Cats be killing me flashing their little chicken scratch money when real black men already been through millions with his woman raising a black family and putting the kids through college. These brothas always talking about some lightweight ass hustle on BBS boards like hustling FOREX or vending machines. Allowed His Ego to Override Everything. One thing that upset me about brothas is the notion he has ownership of the black woman he with talking about “that’s my woman!” like he some damn territorial mating baboon in the wild. You try to tell these brothas something and they got pride and defensive all the time causing them to get shot because they got an ego to protect and defend. No one wants to deal with young African-American dudes because they are stereotyped as hyper-macho and violent-prone and misogynist and possessive. And most of all – just some fuckboys. Go look at the comments on YouTube or those BBS boards like United Players of America or the Coli and the rest of that shit – those are grown ass brothas talking. You know the messed-up part about these grown ass brothas posting text in these BBS and YouTube, right? That there are Chinese, India, Nigerian young men the same age who got mad hustle and money up and taking over the leadership and direction of their people and nation. All of these sorry ass brothas got an anecdotal story to tell in a text-based form input box somewhere on the Interwebs and posing phony as hell they got money and made over the Internet. With President Obama leaving the White House, these brothas either got to deal with a feminist President who will go after deadbeat fathers or deal with Rudy Giuliani in the White House setting up with federal operatives how to cull off black males like he went down there to Brazil and did – wasn’t successful at reducing crime but a lot of poor Brazilian dudes and women got killed to look tough. Just ain’t a good look for sorry ass African-American brothas who turned away his own sista and have no one that has his back in the Post-Obama era. So the question is what can these broke-down brothas do? Can the overall African-American community do anything for these brothas? A lot of black dudes cannot be turned around – me and you are from these streets and know you can put bullets in these brothas and ship them to the ICU at the county hospital and their family looking at them with IVs and breathing tube in his front neck and all that brotha still know how to do is be hard-headed. Only the grave is going to solve some of these brothas problems, we got to be honest about that real talk. Shipping them down to Charlotte or Bakersfield ain’t a solution either, they get into dumb stuff down there real quick also. You can't tell them to move out the country because we will be seeing on the news they going to hang an African-American brotha on the gallows for bringing drugs into their country. But these are the class of brothas that cannot be turned around. But we got this other class of brothas that just ain’t going to get up and get out and get something. They let their ego get in the way of progress, they are watching Hidden Colors on DVD and talking about how deep that shit is, they working a mediocre ass job talking about they hustling on the BBS boards on the InterWebs and they cannot find a woman and have to con a young black hooker to give him some. These brothas are living with their momma who know their son cannot last a day on his own in the real world. But you got other brothas who do want to make a difference and be somebody but they just don’t know how and who to turn to. Can anything be done for the young brothas because these brothas can talk all the shit in the world but we all know they are screwed in the Post-Obama era and most of their problems are self-inflicted by being a ego-defensive misogynistic moron in the black community. So what can be done for these young brothas?

  1. if anything can be done for these brother their mothers need to tell them to “go get themselves together and do better”, never underestimate the power and influence of a good mother, I knew a guy back in the day, a good guy who had no skills, couldn’t hold a descent job, worked temporary jobs while living off of women, one day his mother summons him to come home because she had something she wanted to talk to him about, and one Saturday he drove home to see what his mother wanted, once he got home half way scared not knowing what his mother wanted, he walked in the door while his mother was cooking his favorite meal, she said to him boy set down there, I call you here boy to tell you “me and your daddy didn’t raise you to run around living off of women, now you get yourself together and do better” the guy said yes ma’am, couldn’t say another word, ate his food, said goodbye got in the car and drove back, enrolled in a technical college and got him some training in electronics while working at night, once he finish technical college he had three very good job offers, he took one with a major railroad, married his college educated girlfriend and they started winning together. again never underestimate the power and influence of a good mother. now some of these brothers if they have been hustling and have gained knowledge and skills in buying and selling products, with patience, discipline and a willingness to work long hours they are the ones with a golden opportunity to take back the legal commerce and services in the community by taking back the corner stores, markets and services in the communities. but they got to have “want too”.

    1. +1 agree. I do hope a young black guy find it in himself to be somebody and not need external forces telling him to handle his business.

    1. Training people or hiring people who ain’t got themselves right is a waste of time. Already seen it before where black dudes disappear because a drug test was required

      Or black dudes taking ideas from the global urban collective like a barber app or stock exchange for their own gain even though they lack skills to see it through but showing he really about himself.

      Or others who cannot keep other people names out their mouth or fixated on race issues instead of be a subject matter expert. You cannot train people or do business with brothas who ain’t right themselves.

      It’s too late in the Post-Obama Era to be talking helping people who didn’t help themselves the past 8 years when it was good under a black president. They got to help themselves like their life depend on it but they are too down…training courses is not enough or effective in my experience.

      You cannot train a black dude to be better if he has not accepted how he treated his own black woman with degradation and disrespect and still subscribed to such ideas.

      1. I see what you’re saying so unfortunately. Our black men in this country are that bad. What you said remind me of 3 of my make cousins who both went to universities when they graduated high school but all 3 dropped out. One tried to become a drug dealer then got arrested and now has a felony, then he never tried to do anything else for work. He stayed in his mother’s house until she kicked him out this year when he turned 31, now he stays at his pops house. His brother seems to be following in his footsteps by dropping out of college, but he gets off jobs here and there and both of them love to debate about religions and illuminati and pro black rhetoric. Now my third cousin also dropped out of college then he ran into a guy who was doing checks and identity fraud scams so he tried doing that then he got arrested and end up getting a felony. He too was staying with his uncle but he wasn’t trying to find a job nor was he contributing to the household. So eventually at age 31, he too was locked out and his mother was forced to allow him to come back home.

  2. I always like how you describe the global impact because it’s very relevant. Your article is on point. All this terrible music and lifestyles or lack thereof are going to ‘come home to roost’ in 2017. Some of those so-called ‘woke’ folks who have websites and videos ‘preachin’ and ‘keepin’ it 100′, will be exposed because truth be told – they are pimpin their own people, selling their products that must always be in demand so the sales pitch is always on blast. Some are so paranoid and irate about criticism or questions that they block intelligent people and call them ‘feds’ or trolls. It’s gonna be every man or woman for themselves this new year because the white man doesn’t have enough to go around for his own people anymore, let alone the ones he doesn’t claim as his.

  3. t’s gonna be every man or woman for themselves this new year because the white man doesn’t have enough to go around for his own people anymore, let alone the ones he doesn’t claim as

    Been like this for a long time at least ten years for the white folks also. they catching hell too, I see it everyday in metro Seattle. The ones who did not go to school and not lucky enough to get in Boeing ass out just like our folks are. Plus they are drugging it up big time and dying from the drugs, they are breaking in other white folks shit left and right and living in cars everywhere you look ,why you think they believe trump’s lying ass? they are hurting too.The corporate MBA white folks got around to selling them out too, after they sent urban america’s jobs out of America first. Everything folks say black men doing, they are doing it too; the media just does not report it.I have heard some outrageous stories from my white female co-workers .

  4. What can be done for these young brothas? I am not sure-I know that the behavior and egos they display will never get them to the place they want to be. I cannot tolerate how brothas actually act as though they have so much to offer and cannot offer a sandwich. We can try to help the ones who are still impressionable by age like 5 years and up. We can help them to understand degrading your women is not and never will be a good look. We cannot accept what the media places out there about us, start to think for ourselves, and rely on what we can and cannot change in order to move forward. But Ed, you have hit so many focal points on what is needed. I cannot speak on all of them. I can only try to help change what can be changed.
    Thanks Ed for all you do!
