The Beauty of the Black Man (3865 hits)

I just posted this on Facebook, and thought: why not share it with my family on Connect?

Have you ever looked at a brother, not in a nasty or s*xual way, and said "there is the very definition of beauty and grace and great power"?

Its too bad a lot don't know it. They know they are strong, maybe attractive, but put aside the vanity and then what? We need the great power they have to kick in and take charge. Starting with their homes, communities etc. Walk the talk. Not just in certain cities but in ALL communities.

Of course there will be one we are attracted to. But, as a whole there is something about this black man. He needs to retrieve his kingdom back! First being the ruler of self, then home, etc

As-Salaam-Alakium: Excellent post, the Black Man needs to get in touch with his nine ether, the knowledge of himself and lead himself!

It's not hard being a leader, we all know what's right from wrong. What's hard is doing the right things, even if it's not convenient for you. Why stay in on Friday and Saturday to study, when you can be out partying.. or, why give up time to volunteer, and be an active role model.. Giving is better than receiving, what we see today is a separation of these principals, and are influenced by greed and the evils..

When I see people who are so influenced by their surroundings, that they adapt to this and fit in, rather than change it for the better is what concerns me.. Why do we need to use the vocabulary we so frequently see, or why do we dress like we do.. why let negative things in music influence our way of living.. If you surround yourself by successful people who are on the right track, then you'll be alright.

Why spend money you make now, when you can invest and become more prosperous later on.. with wisdom and spiritual guidance, a leader uses their influence to improve everyone's lives and strives for this, not to be envied but admired and influences positive messages..

The definition of a leader varys from one person to another, but the black community's really lack real leaders right now. A uniting force. One man that I know of that's probably the best leader right now is Reverend James David Manning of ATLAH World Missionary Church. Youtube some of his video's

Beautifully Stated, Brother Derek! I am in concurrence. Many of us are lost in this world of materialism...before it is my time to leave this Earth, I would love to see Our People Re-Discover Themselves...and take our Proper Place as a Proud, Majestic, Responsible, Respected, Respectful, and Beautiful Black Men, Women, and Children.

Leaders in and of this Planet...in Our Proper Position!

Thank you Brother...excellent piece.

Peace and Love,
