We Must Make The Change
Americans are increasingly uneasy about race relations in the United States,
ranking that as the nation's number one problem along with unemployment,
according to a recent Gallup poll.
Some Of Our Dead Unarmed Black Men
of our concern, which began growing last year, is driven by highly publicized
police shooting of unarmed black men, also in the news a lot over the last five
fact that race relations ranks so high is not surprising because of how often
the news and entertainment media highlight stories that associate black men
with violence, crime and poverty, yet I
believe that all races and genders suffer from the same epidemic as does our
black communities coast to coast, "Now, Ain't That American?"
mostly black males are focused on and portrayed everywhere we look in a
negative light, our brains -no matter our race or sex - are prone and primed to
believe that this portrayal is correct, even the norm, But the fact is,, it's
not. Not by a long shot.
way to address the problem is to "update" the narrative with a more
full picture of "us" black men and our black teenage boys.
example: more than 80% of black men 25 and older have at least a high school
diploma. And a much repeated myth that there are more black men in prison than in college isn't true, and if you believe in that liberal disinformation, then,
you're the problem.
One Of The Many Black Contributors
U.S. is bursting with black men that are educated, good businessmen and great
fathers, yet their contributions to society are greatly overlooked. So that's
why America needs to update the way it views black men.
nation is in the middle of perhaps its biggest cultural transfer in history.
Over the coming years, the baby boomers will give way to the
"millennials" as the largest generation in history. As that happens,
America will no longer have a racial majority. All of the social myths will
be updated for better or worse. If we
make a concerted effort to understand each other over the next decade, I think
we can change them for the better.
that black men are assets opens up opportunities for all people to build better
cities by working with those black men who are willing to uphold important
values and take constructive action. We must stop ignoring the overwhelming
amount of good that black men do for our country. Letting go of stereotypes
about black males will help more than just black males. Valuing all members of
the human family is the most prosperous way forward for a nation as diverse as
of us should reject any narratives that denigrate people and prejudice one
group against another, that's why I'm committed to informing people of all
races and genders to bring about a more understanding, caring and prosperous
can each be the hero in the story of America's future. As black men and as a
nation, our challenges are real, but our contributions are more real. What you
focus on has power over your life. So, as black males and as Americans, we make
our future when we make our choices.
