5 Feet of Fury

Oh, THAT ‘decline of the black family/culture of poverty’

Actual black woman writes:

I’m disgusted and frustrated at the amount of grown black men in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s and 50′s who are unable to function because instead of being given the principles and standards of manhood when they were children, they were spoiled and coddled by their mother, and grew into punks who can’t deal with the realities and complexities of life. (…)

I’ve witnessed many mothers tell their black boys not to go away to college because they need them at home, as they are the man of the house, and in some cases the only man in the mother’s life.
