Rebuilding The Black Family from Black Love Matters on Vimeo.
The Black Family has stood together since time immemorial. We must continue to uplift this sacred structure if we are to continue our legacy. Black Man + Black Woman = Black Child! "We are not a problem people; we are a people with problems. We have historic strengths; we have survived because of family. The Black Family of the future will foster our liberation, enhance our self-esteem, and shape our ideas and goals." ~ Dorothy Height "It's time to rebuild the Black Family. It's not as hard as some of us think. We just need to recognize the time and what must be done." ~ Leo Muhammad #BlackLovematters "If we are to appreciate the Black family in all of its diversity and complexity, we have to reject the white family model as the frame of reference for viewing the Black family." ~ Oba T'Shaka "What must we do? First of all, it is incumbent on all serious black men to stand up, come forward and reclaim our rights to control our destiny. This is an affirmation that we will not deviate from: our ancestral legacy as providers and protectors, builders and directors, regardless of aberrant social pressures. Secondly, serious black fathers must return to their children's homes and work assiduously to restore leadership and direction to these families where noble mothers have stood virtually alone trying to raise our youth. Third, we serious black men must empower ourselves through a cultural system that permeates our social practices, giving us respect as positive role models. This value system should include the Nguzo Saba: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. Fourth, strong black men must organize and strategize to control all of the vital institutions within our community and, where necessary, build and maintain new forms of institutional structures. Among the priorities should be education, economics, politics and culture. Fifth, serious black men must take the responsibility for training our boys to become men and create criteria for certifying the eligibility of boys to be qualified as men. Together, with our wives, we can raise black boys. But only black men should train and certify our boys into adulthood. Finally, serious black men must sever the umbilical cord of dependency on white paternalism. Only when we can challenge each other to "do for self and kind" will our children emulate our positive behavior. We already have everything we need to begin and complete this process of cultural, psychological and spiritual transformation. All it takes is our individual decisions to stand up, come forward and work unceasingly for the liberation of our families and communities from racial oppression and economic exploitation.." ~ Hannibal Afrik "Birth difficulties and infant mortality, which are significantly higher among black mothers, have been found to be related to black maternal emotional upset. The constant stress of being black in a racist society, the ongoing struggle with identity problems, inferiority complexes, double-consciousness, the stresses brought on by economic problems, marital problems, broken homes (nearly half of black families are headed by females), teenage motherhood, unwed motherhood, etc., which are highly prevalent in the black community, create a state of chronic emotional stress in black mothers and this stress affects many of their children in the form of physical, mental, emotional and behavioral problems...The struggle for survival of the larger percentage of black mothers creates an emotional state of mind not conducive to childbearing or rearing. The economic hardship, regardless of familial support, institutional support such as welfare agencies are responsible for a large share of black maternal emotional stress. The black mother is far more likely to work late in her pregnancy and is therefore more likely to suffer from fatigue harmful to her child. Because she is more likely to receive inadequate financial support from the father of the child, her family, from social institutions, the black mother suffers most from adverse emotional stress and strain and physical exhaustion, thereby reducing the life-chances of her unborn child. The frequent forming and breaking of emotional-romantic attachments, and/or the continued exploitation or feared exploitation of the black mother by unscrupulous males, add to her emotional problems. For the maritally abandoned mother, the unwed and teenage unwed mother (of which black mothers form the largest number), the absence of a supportive, extended family, the absence or lack of emotional support by the baby's father or others can create a damaging psychological state of mind which may be physically or behaviorally harmful both before and after birth." ~ Dr. Amos N. Wilson The Developmental Psychology of The Black Child

mr1stroke exactly what I've been saying
I feel you.
Well he's got a friend in you. Never me.
For truth, I don't understand why a women would wait years to accuse someone of rape. That I just don't understand. But you can't think that every celebrity is squeaky clean. After Bill Cosby started dissing the brothers, I stopped being a fan. You guys can believe in him if you want to.
