I FOUND MY ‘BROTHER’
There are women and men bestowed with the gift to answer the ultimate question. That question is ‘WHY’. They are charged with rendering an answer that can be understood by the most contrary element of our society. Those that foment, spread and traffic in hate. Our Brothers are in need of guidance and this journal will bring forth a multitude of remedies to address the male illness of unawareness. The answer to the ultimate unknowns of behavior and responsibility.
Those of us given this perception and understanding to interpret the unknown and apply the information to the known is the essence of our charge. Thereafter decode the messages for the people who oppose themselves. This decryption is then presented to the people as the explanation of events past, present and future so they may keep updated to the frenetic changes occurring today and those that will arrive soon.
Brothers, this journal is a call to all of you to obtain the knowledge that you lack in every part of your lives. As sons. As brothers. As fathers. As grandfathers. As uncles. As cousins. Ignorance will no longer be tolerated, encouraged or celebrated. As the ‘First Father’ has said in his Holy Bible “let everything be done decently and in order”. Honor and truth will not be perverted anymore. Why? Because as a Black Man I will impart all I have learned and gathered for over 54 years of life in America and around the world to the young coming behind me and my elders above me. Why? Things that now appear as they do will begin to appear as they should be according to what is right? Help me see to it as this mandate has been divinely ordered.
In order to solve a problem there must be an admittance of what the problem is. The black male has been bombarded with very specific attacks throughout our existence in America. The first attack targeted what we believed we were. A family man enslaved in America. Take away his role as a father, husband and son while stripping him of his dignity.
The second target was a systemic and constant attack to relieve the Black male of his responsibility to someone else. If the Black male believes that he does not need to help another human being then his efforts alone would end at his capture or death. Therefore strip the Black male of his love for his brother and he will be easily defeated.
The third attack is a doozy. Give a few Black males a morsel of success and then get them to say that it is possible for all Black males to have success if they had these factors at their disposal. A two parent home with a Black father that supported their needs. An enrollment in a proper school with educated teachers. This third factor must be included and it is keep them isolated from too many of their kind. Keep the Black male isolated and with his success intact and he will blame all Black males for their own failure.
These strongholds must be broken apart. The mind, soul and the heart are my targets. When I understood why Black males have been behaving as they do I needed to formulate a solution to the problem. I still believe there is a great spirit waiting to break through to display the Black male’s soul, but it has to be brought forth in ‘decency and in order’.
My first solution is this and I want every Black male to start from where they are now. I know that could be while skills are nowhere to be found. Trouble with the criminal justice system and indebted with unpaid obligations. Behaving badly because of the things you have learned and the response to your actions is giving you the same. Start changing from within. Your mind is the best place to start. Respect yourself and respect others is where you must start. We will go forth from there.
