Manly Men of Color

I don't think we need to look at statistics. Men of color are in dire circumstances right now, there is not too much men of color are doing to keep ourselves in check. So here it is. Again this is not just for black males but for all men of color.

I am wanting to start a personal development and lifestyle consultation business for those who are interested in practical planning for success.  I would like to know if there are anyone interested in something like this.  I think minorities could benefit from such a service as the business world is returning to a conservative worldview.

I'm new here.  I work as a professional, college-educated music pastor.  I am presently working in a predominantly Caucasian cultural environment, and now after many years caught between to extreme worlds---too black for the white world around me/too white for the black community.  I'm looking find out how others navigate through this maze.

I stand corrected

Yes, he makes NO mistakes! We all were created in his image and likeness, but the misconception that one man is greater than another was and is a lie that was imputed to men by the father of lies. Before Christ, we are all on even ground. My statement earlier, was an explaination that reveals that the color of my skin has nothing to do with who I really am, yet the way the average human mind precieves and interprets my outward apperance, is usually deceptive. Be at peace friend, you're in good company!

I commend you on your Citizenship but, God did not create misconception in our minds as to what the color of our skin is to be, or the language we may speak. Make no mistake, He made no mistake.

Metaphorically speaking, God only sees two colors, that is the color of righteousness and the color of sin. My Race is human, my nationality was U.S. American. The color of my skin is just a reflection of specific photons (Light rays), produced by a source, and perceived by the human mind as a denotation of who I am, which in and of it‘s self lies deception. When Jesus found me, he opened my eyes to the color of sin in my heart, which he covered with his blood to reflect the color of his righteousness, and now I am free at last. Now my Citizenship is in Heaven as a son of the most high King.

I solidly beleave that our struggle does continue, As a liberated people our people are still very young, We must not lose our heart , faith or determination. We need to realize that the materal rewards i.e. big houses , fancy cars and so on are a result of hard work and accomplishments.

I truly feel that all men are created equal, some have had advantages that others lacked. men of color have always been a focal point of the worlds development. I believe although men of color have a few obstacles to overcome, we will continue to participate create and excel in things as well as all of our male brothers of all races.

I agree, as a Mature Man of Color, I am a statistic in contrast
From a single parent home.
Yes we are in dire circumstances, however like all wars they are won in skirmishes, small battles, and we are winning in many ways.
Our college numbers are up, our small business number are rising.
Yes, the media and the entertainiment industry wants you to beleive otherwise.
I went to America I AM and let me tell you that was a sobering experience, I went through so many mood swings it was ridiculous.
But came out proud, I think that we need to invest in ourselves, build strong families, give our children, our prodigee some roots.
I could say more..........but what say you ??

Commenting on: "Men of color are in dire circumstances..."
It has been my observation that men of color in countries where European slavery had once been a part of the historical make up of that country, have an identity problem. The mentality of the newly freed and sometimes confined slave persists even to this generation. And that mentality is still personal survival by any means necessary. The problem with that kind of thinking is that it is to often canabalistic and doesn't take communal or familial responsibility into account. It also destroys and warps the definition of manhood for to many of our boys and young teens coming up. I think It is our responsibility to pass on through words, deeds, examples and stories what it truely is to be a true man in our communities. As men of color, the responsibility of passing on true manhood to our children is of greater importance because of all that is within and with out our communities working against us. We need to step up in force and show the next generation that violence, jewlery, expensive means of transportation, large houses, and the general disrespect and objectification of women does not by any means and in any way have anything to do with true manhood. We need to teach that manhood is a multi-dimentioned and oft times heavy responsibility. That we're not just responsible to ourselves but to our families, our community and to the world. For the world IS indeed watching and judging. Not just by the trappings of our lives, but by our assumed responsibilities, and how we execute them.

Moneys... and what to do with em

Hello,I have spent the last year paying off all my credit card debt. I have paid off $10,000 so far, just $1,000 to go.I've been working two jobs to achieve this, and also studying part time so that I can change into a career of my choice (instead of just working in whatever jobs I can get).My next goal will be to save $10,000 as a safety fund.But then, I'm not sure...In what ways do you all invest? Or do you not invest at all? Do you prefer to have it still safety in the bank? Let me know, for…See More
