GET MAD, IT'S COOL. I HAVE A BULLETPROOF VEST ON LAYAWAY. WE NEED TO OPEN UP THE DOORS OF COMMUNICATION AND NOT BE AFRAID TO SAY THINGS THAT MAY NOT BE POPULAR.

HERE WE GO!

Many of our black athletes come from humble beginnings. They came up watching their single mothers struggle, working long hours, or hustling to take care of them. A lot of them grew up without fathers and had mothers strung out on drugs. Sports were their escape.

To the future athlete these are some of the things that they saw on a daily basis.

* GUNS/BLACK ON BLACK CRIME

“JUST BECAUSE EVE TOOK THE FIRST BITE, IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT WE HAVE TO EAT THE WHOLE THING” TIFFANI A. MCCLAIN

Ladies, ladies, ladies, we need to get it together. We're smart, beautiful, independent, strong, and out-spoken. We settle too much. Either we have super high expectations or we scrape the bottom of the barrel.We have to follow God so that we can learn how to be happy in the middle.

Suicide is a topic rarely talked about in the African American community.

Here is my story. When I was 14 years old, I was living with a friend of mine and her family.  I had a lot of freedom but I was unhappy.  I was very unhappy.

I began drinking Cisco, trying to escape my pain. The alcohol wasn’t working. I no longer wanted to live. I began to have thoughts about suicide, thinking about jumping in front of cars. I decided against it because I had been hit by a car before and that wasn’t a good feeling. I then thought about stabbing myself but I didn’t want to bleed all over the place. I wanted my death to be peaceful.  One night when everyone in the house was asleep, I went into the bathroom, opened the medicine cabinet, and pulled out a bottle of pills. The bottle had not been opened, so when I opened the bottle, I only took half. I didn’t want to take the whole bottle for fear of getting in trouble, just in case I didn’t die. I went into the kitchen, got a glass of water, and took the pills.
