Black Men SOBB
“Saving Our Black Boys”
Today I would like to begin a dialogue about our Black Boys. You see they are under attack and don’t even know it. Black Boys are the future progenitors of our race and represent a potent and powerful force to be reckoned with. It appears that there are forces at work to diminish and demean the3 Young Black Males. This is in part due to the unusual effect they have on everything from culture to creativity. Black Boys rule. They dominate sports and music and cultural ideology. They influence impressionable minds across a cultural divide that includes every race of youth on the planet.
Yet they are without question under attack by the very factions that they influence. The Media has launched an all out war against Black Boys. The Media includes Music, Television, Print and digital. The Media complex has unleashed a barrage of attack aimed at desensitizing and demoralizing the Black Boys. It portrays images of a hardened and morally bankrupt tough guy. This media monster can’t cry and is presented as incapable of displaying affection to anyone but MOMMA. Raunchy Rap music shares an image of a shallow player that dresses like a SLOB and is devoid of any feeling of humanity. They are led to show and destroy each other in the name of fame and shame.
The educational System has attacked Black Boys by marginalizing and streamlining them to the bottom of class. Unfit and fearful teachers are unable to reach Black Boys at the “Common Core” so they label them slow and EMR. They socially Promote Black Boys to rid themselves of them and soon we find a broken Boy who can’t perform basic skill sets i.e. reading, writing and arithmetic. Black Boys are then pushed out of the school system and forced to struggle on the streets. (The media then glamorizes this “THUG LIFE”)
The Church has turned a blind eye and deaf ear on Black Boys in an effort to “BUILD BIGGER BARNS”. The safety net of the church is broken and the focus is growth of the ministry and not growth and development of the Black Boys, “after all it isn’t the church’s responsibility to raise these boys, it clearly is the parents”.
Today I won’t talk about the Prison Industrial Complex that is in cohorts with the School. Or the Government who has a ticking time bomb of unemployed, unskilled, UNNECESSARY Black Boys who pose a problem of epic proportions to society. Suffice it to say The Media has Assailed them, The Educational System has Failed them, The Prison Industrial System has Jailed them, The Government has Derailed them, and the Church has expelled them. Left to fend for themselves Blacks Boys have created a counter culture that is fear inducing to the mainstream society. It is for that reason primarily that Black Boys are under attack. Let’s begin a dialogue to Save Our Black Boys.

#MACKnificent Mindset: How thick is your skin. Can you handle people lying about you and talking about you behind your back? Can you deal with those brazen enough to talk about you to your face and say if for your own good? Can you take people twisting your words and meanings and actions to trap you and trip you up and take you down a notch?
Are you ready for them to laugh at your ideas and sneer at your intentions? What if they dig a hole for you to fall in and you fall and can’t get up. What if they steal your DREAMS and say they are theirs and they profit at your expense. What if they turn your friends and family and those you care about against you and make YOU look like a fool?
WHAT IF THEY JUST WON’T LEAVE YOU ALONE NO MATTER WHAT? Is your skin tough enough to handle the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune? Is it tough enough to face those that are THEY (Those Hating & Envying You)?

MACKnificent Mindset: Mindsight is so much more important than Hindsight. Mindsight is like looking through the windshield, whereas hindsight is like looking in the rear view mirror. Don’t get it wrong both are needed to drive a car. You just need to look through the windshield more than you look in the rearview.
Mindsight is the ability to see something in your mind first and then watch it manifest into your current reality. Mindset is a gift from god that must be practiced over and over. The more you use Mindsight the better you become at not only seeing what you want, but also wanting what you see.
What you hold in your Mindsight becomes what you will look at in Hindsight. You see what you say and see are a result of what you said and saw. Practice your ability to see things that are not yet, in order to have things that would not have otherwise been yours.
Man has that singular ability to speak and seek a future that is not yet manifest. It’s easier to look at the past with fondness, than to look forward to the future with faithfulness. Those that are winning in life have discovered how to use Mindsight and picture a world exactly like they want to see projected in the future and reflected in the past!

#MACKnificent Mindset: Here’s a thought….”Practice Prosperity”.
This is the process whereby you begin to allow yourself to experience the things you want to see manifested in your life daily. Start going out to nice places to eat and begin doing some of the fun things you have only imagined yourself doing.
You have to become accustomed to the way you want to live. Start going to dealerships and driving the cars you want to own. Begin visiting open houses of the type of home you truly want to own. Make it a habit of tithing more and giving more and see how it feels to be blessed enough to give and live off the balance.
Practice prosperity on a daily basis and soon you will be living the lifestyle of the blessed and prosperous. Stop withholding from yourself and others. The measure you mete out is the same degree in which you will see blessing manifested in your life. Today is a great day to PRACTICE PROSPERITY!
