WARNING: I am going to piss some people off with what I’m going to say but it needs to be said. I love black men and would like one of my own but our community is in trouble. It’s because of this love that I am writing this article.
I was at work last night, driving my bus when I began to think about my poetry cd that I’m working on. I then thought of my poem entitled, “BLACK MAN.” A few of the lines came to my head and then I got the urge to write this article. I will share those lines with you:
“SPIKE SAID WAKE UP! TO DO MINIMUM IS NOT ENOUGH. BLACK MAN! SLEEPING WITH MEN, SMOKE AND SELL DRUGS, KILLING OURSELVES, AND ALL THAT STUFF. OUR BLACK MAN WE NEED YOU. BLACK MAN!” “SPIKE SAID WAKE UP! TO DO MINIMUM IS NOT ENOUGH. ALWAYS HAVE FUN MAKING THE BABIES BUT WON’T TAKE CARE OF THEM. OUR BLACK DADS WE NEED YOU. BLACK MAN!”
