Jameis Winston

Feminists are objecting to instructions given to an elementary school class by NFL quarterback Jameis Winston.

The 23-year-old Buccaneers quarterback was invited to speak to youngsters at Melrose Elementary in St. Petersburg Wednesday.

According to the NY Daily News, Winston instructed the boys to "be strong" while telling the girls to “sit down" and "be silent, polite, gentle."

Feminists are upset because Winston addressed the children by gender.

"All my young boys, stand up. The ladies, sit down," Winston said, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"But all my boys, stand up. We strong, right? We strong! We strong, right? All my boys, tell me one time: I can do anything I put my mind to. Now a lot of boys aren't supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I'm saying? One day y'all are going to have a very deep voice like this (in deep voice). One day, you'll have a very, very deep voice. But the ladies, they're supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men (are) supposed to be strong. I want y'all to tell me what the third rule of life is: I can do anything I put my mind to. Scream it!"

"One of the girls turned around and looked at me and said, 'I'm strong too,'" Bonnie Volland, a speech language pathologist at the school, told the Tampa Bay Times.

Winston was forced to "backpedal" and explain why he addressed the children according to their genders.

"I was making an effort to interact with a young male in the audience who didn't seem to be paying attention, and I didn't want to single him out so I asked all the boys to stand up," Winston told the paper.

The NY Daily News made sure to mention Winston's rape allegations while he was a student athlete. He was never charged and he later settled the case with the accuser.

Unfortunately, some boys rarely hear powerful words like Winston's because they are raised by single mothers. Then they go to school where liberals are determined to emasculate them.

Thanks to loyal reader Tanishia for the tip.

    I skimmed the write up looking for Sandra's very own Jerry's final thought. Boom, there it is? You're more consistent and regular than an old man on an all fiber diet?

  • Missy

    i need a break from this place but i just keep coming back *eye roll*

  • CrunchyBlack1

    so nobody went over his speech before they gave him the green light to proceed with that bullshit...i wish a nigga would tell my daughter to be some subservient, passive, docile lil girl

  • SpiceGirl

    you too? Thought it was just me....

  • KDub

    Let me go find the video where Jimbo Fisher was looking at his ass like he was SLOW during that one FSU game. I sure wish @Taken was here. We cried about that mess real hard that night

  • Strong White Woman

    Free Muhiyidin d'Baha?? Black Lives Matter??

  • missmiami305

    Nothing wrong with his speech. I mean he's a male so I expect his speech to be geared toward them.

  • SummerBaby

    I feel like folks are really reaching with this. So he can't address the kids by gender?! ? It's dumb to me.

  • SummerBaby

    Me too! ??

  • CrunchyBlack1

    its what he said to the girls. how you gone tell the girls to be quiet and the boys to be strong?

  • SummerBaby

    According to this write up it states "Feminists are upset because Winston addressed the children by gender."

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong
  • CrunchyBlack1

    well they'd have a better gripe if it was based on the content of the message.

  • SummerBaby

    In my understanding he told the boys to stand up & the girls to be silent, polite & gentle while he's speaking.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Have yall talked about BIC? Sky's numbers aren't adding up. How old is she supposed to be? She claims the dude was 28 and impregnated her when she was 16, which would make him like 43 now. He is NOT 43. And she is ONLY 30?! She has had a HARD life, bih. HARD.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    My thoughts exactly

  • Anunnaki

    Mean what u say. The end. Fck who dont like it

  • Vonn

    Meanwhile...he grew up to be an accused rapists & crab leg thief. Was he raised by a single momma?

  • CrunchyBlack1

    "One day, you’ll have a very, very deep voice. But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle. My men, my men (are) supposed to be strong."

    he was making a distinction between men and women. this is wrong to place a woman in a box like that, especially in this day and age where women are making tremendous strides in all facets of life.

  • nucynu25

    He should've just kept out the Steve Harvey parts .

  • hi-liter

    He seems like a bishassnigga too me....cussed Young Bae clean out, but when Walt came out to speak to him, nigga acted like he had sense then.....Sky had Miss Kitty poosey mold all up in her face....I'm like girllllll stop!.................Sky gone get a replica of Miss Kitty's kitty.

  • Anunnaki

    These mfkers just want the girls to be strong and boys to be gentle i cant stand this sick azz world.

  • SummerBaby

    I hear you, but I still disagree. There are certain things I hate/refuse dayum near have to be forced to do because I'm a woman & think it's a man's job.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He did NOT tell those young ladies to sit down (per all the reports) His words were: But the ladies, they’re supposed to be silent, polite, gentle.

    After he said: Now a lot of boys aren't supposed to be soft-spoken. You know what I'm saying? One day y'all are going to have a very deep voice like this (in deep voice). One day, you'll have a very, very deep voice.

    And he asked the boys to stand up ONLY, so that he could address them DIRECTLY and asked them to repeat the 3rd rule to him about being anything they wanted to be.

    For the girl who complained I am strong too...the adult could have simply said, "Yes, you are. This is not about you not being strong, he is just focusing/talking to the boys right now." Problem Solved!!!

    Folks stay looking for a damn problem, where there is none. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9080571313cfb3cad4c2ca2e05e0584717a61b17ba32802fb12ebf2d3e55873d.jpg

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!
  • SummerBaby

    Thank you!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He should not have cussed her out, but Young Bae with the nasty looks, should have stayed out of it. Y'all only got Sky's All Over the Place" story and her usual crocodile tears.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I am still trying to add all this mess up.

  • Buttercup

    Eye don't see anything wrong with what he said.

  • Emily post

    He didnt say it as horrible as TMZ .... Made it out to seem. Maybe he should do an football camp for boys.. .

  • CrunchyBlack1

    what do you mean, what things are you forced to do?

  • SummerBaby

  • Emily post

    Its crazy how they try to vilify certain men who are strong. He was trying to do a nice thing for the kids. .

  • Buttercup

    I thought she said she gave birth when she was 14.

  • hi-liter

    Fugazi tears.....her cry is worst that Kim K's.

  • nucynu25

    You summed this up nicely.

  • hi-liter

    This boy country.....raised in Hueytown, Al (B'ham)......by Mother and Father I believe. When he got into that trouble, dad came to his defense, and that's prolly where gets his views.

  • Jessy

    I get what he was trying to say. However, he probably should have asked to speak with the boys only if he wanted to give them a pep talk. Just as if let's say a Beyoncé wanted to talk to girls about being empowered and strong and running the world-the boys wouldn't need to be there. Both groups need to hear it in different ways and for different reasons. Acting as if gender doesn't exist is just making the problem worst. It does exist and we all do need to be strong but it is not necessarily the same message.

  • SummerBaby

    I don't mean it that way. I mean there are certain things I think a man & woman should do. Example take out trash. I'm forced to do it..if I don't have a man.

  • nucynu25

    Well said ?

  • Emily post

    Yeah well the owner is probably into emasculating males over at TMZ.... LMAO Sorry I want my kids to be Gender conforming...

  • Buttercup

    There are certain things I hate/refuse dayum near have to be forced to do because I'm a woman & think it's a man's job.
    ========
    Say that! I'm not a man. I do not want to be a man. I'm very different than a man. The differences doesn't make me less than though.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    you dont have a problem with a beta male telling your daughter to be a silent, not strong like serana williams, not strong like angela davis, assata shakur, etc..be silent like a suburban white house wife.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I just have no tolerance for dumbshyt when it was a positive thing. We have enough shyt twisted.....can we keep something good? DAMN

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah, 14. Then she said she hadn't even turned 30 yet. So 15 years later he should be in his mid 40's.

  • Ni Ni

    Okay so this the dude yall used to pass that award around for?, but i still don't know what he did.

  • nucynu25

    That's why my only problem with what he said is telling the girls how they should be . We are are all different .. As a woman I don't hve to be weak & quite to be respected that's bs.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    And then one of the girls would have complained about not being a part of it and instead of the adult explaining it-----we get this!!

    But I agree wholeheartedly with you comment.

  • Emily post

    It wasnt like they were boycotting or marching or starting a revolution... Why cant a man address males... He wasnt talking to the female children.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm calling bs. The story he posted on IG was more believable. Sky is so full of shyt. At first she was acting like both her kids had the same father. Then ole boy started telling the business and she had to circle back around and further explain that she has TWO fathers. "I gave my kids up so they would never have to feel abandoned." What? Bye, Sky.

  • klwbaby

    I honestly think that Sky doesn't know what is happening in her own life half the time, maybe alcohol clouds her memory....

  • Buttercup

    He didn't tell the girls to NOT be strong. Even if he was talking about how girls should conduct themselves in life and not just in that moment, I don't see anything wrong with what he said. Serena Williams, Angela Davis, Assata Shakur are all strong in their own right, but that doesn't mean that a woman can't be silent, polite, and gentle whilst being strong. Open your mind.

  • Missy

    No ma'am def not just you...i come here for fun but sometimes i leave feelin kinda drained. Its starting to interrupt my spirit.

  • nucynu25

    He did address the girls . I do agree that his message was really for the boys tho .. he just got alil too Steve Harvish to meh when he did address the girls . Other than I have no problem.

  • Ni Ni

    You might as well not say shat no mo. He's just not articulate yet. He'll get better, he's still so young.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I was done when AGAIN they taking a trip and her azz running around naked.....but ain't made a trip to see her children. I don't believe her story and I would not be surprised if she lied about her age.

    Plus he did not look close to 50 to me.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Damn he's looking mighty zesty in that pic.

    It seems as if every time this clown opens his mouth it makes me believe that he did rape that white girl.

  • nucynu25

    Good point ...I like you.

  • 2brefrank

    Well..in this Fatherless generation sounds like a wonderful pep talk to me...don't mean you can't cry if sumthin hurts but you know...you are a young man!! ....thank you sir for not blurring the gender lines like Hollywood is trying to do. There's male and then theres female....

    Too many Jezebels and Ahabs running around. Get in yo place! Girls are supposed to be ladies...that's what i was taught.

  • Phillybruh

    The Getdown returns to Netflix in April...been waiting for that announcement..lol

  • Buttercup

    Acting as if gender doesn't exist is just making the problem worse.
    ========
    THIS!!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Sky done told so many stories to get by in life, she believes half are true and can't remember the other half.

  • Vonn

    It is. & Sandra threw the ole "raised in a single momma house" on at the end.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Exactly! Just stop talking about it because if you wanted to be in their lives, you would be.

  • Emily post

    I agree he could of had a little more finesse. It really wasnt as big of a deal as TMZ was trying to make it..
    I would much rather have a man telling my son to be strong than having him walking around looking like that poor black child Charlize Theron is abusing.

  • Jen_no_juice

    I'm more concerned in his lack of grammar. I don't see anything wrong with what he said though. Besides he said "supposed to be" . I'm supposed to be ignorant cause I'm black but I can handle myself in the corporate world and the hood

  • Missy

    My Grandma used to say women are to be seen & not heard. Although I didn't take this literal I understand the message behind it.

  • nucynu25

    Agreeded

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!
  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I was just saying this the other day. Took a break from FB (deactivated since January 7th) and see myself decreasing my time here. Even if you want to stay positive.......it is hard.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    he said girls need to be silent, polite, and gentle. those aren't empowering words for a girl who strives to be the best.

  • Buttercup

    I missed the latest episode, so I'm not able to run the numbers with you. I do recall some dude old enough to be PapaButter in the previews though.

  • SummerBaby

    I've heard that saying about kids never women tho! ?

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    He thought is right and said it wrong. No public speaking contracts for him...

  • nucynu25

    Right

  • Miany

    I'm good with his message.. as a grown azz woman I sometimes see the need for me to sit thee fugg down and be quiet... everything is about balance and yes, I agree we should teach young ladies (and sometimes young men) the power of being still, the strength in silence.

  • Buttercup

    Wayment, she always said she gave birth to twins when she was 14. What in the world.

    No assigning stereotypes based on gender makes things worse.
    FIFY

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I agree. When I speak strong, it needs to be heard so I choose when to speak carefully.... otherwise I'm just a part of the noise

  • 2brefrank

    I've heard this before. There's a reference in the bible and i promise those before us ran with it. We can speak but i believe we are supposed to be more gentle and let men take the lead on some things...per the bible we are the weaker vessel. Which is okay...this day and age it's looked down upon to be a gentle and sweet woman.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    so as a man i should not be forced to wash dishes, clothes, and help keep the house clean?

  • Missy

    Ive heard that about the kids too but she said women. And although she felt that way, it never diminished her strength.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Exactly! I was on here telling y'all last season she had two baby daddies. Those kids were not twins. But I guess no one believes me ever since I said Remy Ma gave birth in prison. Lol.

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

    variation on a theme... (Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience... I Corin) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/89e8bff840f7b066dba9a0e9e744eb581aafdea92dc9efeb4f60cc49e5cd7ad9.gif

  • Buttercup

    I don't see being quiet as being weak. My train of thought is along the lines of being submissive isn't a bad thing, and it's necessary to have order in the home. Women can only follow a man who is willing and capable of leading though.

  • nucynu25

    If you my man you don't hve to . I guess am old fashion ..

  • Emily post

    He was just addressing the males in the room... I also would not want to give my daughter the impression that she always needs to compete with males.
    Some women take the I can do whatever a man does mentality too far.

  • Buttercup

    *sits with you*

  • missmiami305

    My mama would say this to me growing up. I totally get the point. I find myself saying the same to my girls. Ladies are to be seen and not heard.

  • NeverSurprised

    I agree completely. And let's face it, some of these young girls have never been taught what it means to act like a "lady" -- to know that they can make their points without yelling or screaming or cursing like a man. Toughness in a woman is an entirely different thing. I am the female owner of a business in a male-dominated industry and I cannot, in every instance, conduct business EXACTLY as a man would, but I will always be the one in charge.

    I wish the school had used this opportunity to have a successful woman address the girls at the same time that he was addressing the boys. Or perhaps they will now have a follow-up lecture from a woman.

  • Jen_no_juice

    That's what I said when I 1st saw Cam post something, but he has not changed yet

  • SummerBaby

    Nope that's not what I'm saying. I really don't care what other folks do or what works for them or not. I'm saying if I have a man I'm not cutting grass or taking the trash out.

  • Buttercup

    ?I didn't know you said that about Sky or Remy Ma. You've been vindicated, sis.

  • nucynu25

    Submissiveness is strength but we talking bout kids sis ... I don't think a kid takes it deep how we are . The girls just heard quite & docile .. I do agree that it isn't a big deal tho .

    Some men do and some don't. All men don't go after one type of woman. There is something for everybody. That is how women lose out trying to be one type for woman for everyman that she meets. Different stokes for different folks.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    the reality is that you have to compete with men if you want to live a comfortable life. its a male driving society and you gotta fight unless its a situation of nepotism then nobody wins there.

  • NeverSurprised

    I think it's so very important that we are honest and open with young people about the realities of the business world, and that includes acknowledging the differences in behavior required of men and women. That acknowledgement does not make us weak, it makes us realistic, and it more adequately prepares us for success in life.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Missing- they just being Stevie Wonder blind to it! Just determined that it ain't happen, even when it is in writing!!

  • A D N

    Finally, a man, telling boys to be men...strong and powerful. And yes, women are strong, because we have to hold up men, when they are having weak moments. We balance each other. And....I agree, females need to be quiet sometimes...always jumping in a man's face, being rude and disrespectful, and overpowering, while weakening the man. Sit down somewhere lol. In other words, be soft and gentle, while remaining strong because you are every woman!

What I've found in the black women that i know...they have become so bitter and so hard...dealing with racism, dealing with the struggles of motherhood/single motherhood, past hurts....at the end of the day...get better not bitter. I tell my friends all the time...get your sweetness back hunny!

    Stay sweet and gentle and at peace, never let no one or nothing take that away from you. God made us so amazing and for the people that are losing that....that saddens me.

    "some co-workers off if it ain't about work."
    come thru Sis! got one here right now who was only very recently 'revealed' ...I would have never thought she was who she IS! 'round here passing out candy, soliciting prayer, and stayed quoting 'WWJD' ....well Jesus certainly would NOT have filed a bogus grievance against a supervisor that ended w/him getting fired! I be looking at that bish now like she got two heads ('cause she sure enough got a forked tongue!)

    & you did . That would've been to simple tho .

    i agree... he should've spun it a bit differently. girls should be strong, but in different ways... and then went into his spill. this gonna come off wrong, but i understand what he was trying to say.

    His intentions were pure.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She got a slew of them and she has to be crazy to think that she would keep them quiet being on national tv. Now she about to have Walt up in some mess, and he don't even know the whole truth.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    i agree but to say you wont have to compete with men is kinda delusional.

  • 2brefrank

    Right i think that with football being a male dominated sport he wanted to talk to the potential football players in the room. Most girls don't aspire to do that.

    In football i don't want my son whispering hut hut or whatever they say...Say it loud so the team can hear you boi!

  • hottlanta

    Rather be a single woman and happy because I don't wanna deal with no bs just to get a ring and then kiss his azz to stay married to keep it. Speaking of singe why are men like Jamie Foxx, Iris Elba, Tyres and others never been married. Oh they have no issues. RIGHT!!!! Blame the woman.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Amen. Inside and outside of work I be like namyorengaykeeyo.....!!!!! And men do need to be a tad more respectful of those of us who carry ourselves as women.

  • A D N

    Exactly! Sit down somewhere, acting all out. It's ridiculous! Get some class and be a lady. Putting on dress and makeup doesn't make you a lady. That's why some men are turning to transgender females...they know how to "act" like a lady lol.

  • Missy

    Its a lot of women at my job and the majority walk around looking angry...look you dead in the eyes and wont even speak..smile...nod, not a nothing. That's y its sometimes hard to be that change you wanna see. But I be thinking it cant be that damn bad...like ever. Its amazing how a simple gesture such as a smile can brighten someones day. It takes much less energy to be pleasant than it takes to walk around like a damn bull. I just try to stay in my zen chile no matter my circumstance or atmosphere. Did I get OT?

  • CrunchyBlack1

    for an impressionable child, those words can be taken literally. that's why the lil girl made the "im strong too comment" words have power and you better use them correctly around children.

  • Miany

    I wont lie to you.. I can't stand an extra opinionated man.. I like the strong silent type

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    He was! And he never said the girls should be strong. He said gentle and quiet in comparison to what he was saying to the boys. It was not a sexist, diminishing talk, and the target was the boys! When he wanted to address the boys only, he asked them to stand and asked the "Young ladies" to sit down.

  • hottlanta

    I guess that is why straight women turn to women that look like men since a straight man can't man up. A woman knows how to act like a man and treat a lady right since you are blaming straight women for why straight men want a transgender man.

  • A D N

    Huge misconception about strength. Strength is holding things together in the midst of a storm. Understanding from where strength originates and lean upon Him. Knowing that she is not the lead but the support, while understanding what a real leader is. Male gender doesn't make you a leader automatically. It does explain his role in the household...to secure, protect and provide. Her role: nurture and support but speak calmly when he goes off course.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    whatever

  • Buttercup

    And as adults, it's up to us to clear any confusion. If only I had a dollar for each time MamaButter told me, "You don't do what your brothers do! You are a young lady and will act as such" I would be sipping dark and stormies in Grenada right now. She finally broke it down to me that boys/girls men/women are different. Equal but different.

  • 2brefrank

    Right and i thought he was talking about the voice i really do.

    Don't nobody want no whispering football player...say it LOUD. Say it like a man! use that deep voice God gave you...I'm wit it. I got two boys though so....i'm like...come to their school please.

  • Nancy Drew is All The Way Up!

    yes! I feel horrible for my part in even entertaining her 'venting' to me about some things. I just thought she needed an outlet; what she was really doing was trying to establish me as a 'witness' for the upcoming investigation. I did try to re-direct her each time and offer her a different, more positive perspective, but she was so entrenched that I finally pulled away and began avoiding her. I now know this only made her angrier and SOMEBODY had to pay because she was out for blood.

  • Buttercup

    You ain't said nothing but a word. It's about time for me to make a trip to the office up there anyway.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She said it to the woman next to her. That woman should have been a damn adult and explained it to her, since the child was confused, unless the adult was confused too...in that case- They don't need to be teaching.

    I don't condone DV either but women can't be all loud and violent and don't expect a clap-back. I saw a girl yelling, hitting on a guy. She even tried to spit on him. That's when he 'cleaned her clock'!! One moment she was Billie-Bad-Azz the next she was seeing stars...

    Preach

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Okay I will say it:

    Funny how once a black man is accused by a white woman of sexual assault, everything he says thereafter is scrutinized. Yeah it happens to white men in some instances, but more times than not it happens to the black man.

    This young man, even if he is not perfect, gave a speech to empower young men and in a sense he also told them that because women are supposed to be gentle and docile and whatever- as the man with the voice- they are her voice and therefore are supposed to speak up for her.

    WTF was wrong with that message? Oh...wait he empowering future black men to be strong when the world wants to silence them.

    By strong woman you mean masculine, I'm in the same boat as him. That's a major problem in our community that's rarely addressed America through slavery, jim crow, welfare, drugs and terrorism has caused us to switch roles the black woman today wears pants she is loud and manly and basically the head of 80-90% of our households. The black man today is effeminate, soft, subservient to the woman and irresponsible. I agree with him it's time to set things back in order the MAN is the head of the woman Brothers is time to step up to the plate and take care of business Women it's time for yall to take off the pants fall back and play your role.

    Don't Kill, Don't Steal, Don't Hate Your brother, Get and Maintain a Job/Jobs, Marry the woman you lay with, Bring forth children and take care of them, Be the head of the household. Idk why this is so hard for some to comprehend read your history these are principles we lived by in timepast.

  • 2brefrank

    I agree....and it starts with the men..man up so the woman can pipe down.

    In my home..my man runs it and i'm his personal assistant and i love it. Don't mean i don't have a voice, don't mean i don't have me time, don't' mean i don't go to lunch with my girls....but...he's stood up as a man from the beginning and baybee if a man does that...any GOOD woman is happy to oblige.

    We as black women gotta get healed from our past... and get back to being sweet. Who knows....more good men may be drawn to that...and potential good men will want to stand up.

    My son told me the other day....i want a wife like you mommy when i grow up. Mission Accomplished!!!!

    What a wonderful compliment. It means you have created a loving, happy home that your son appreciates and is happy to be a part of. He wants to feel that same joy and contentment when he is older, and wants a woman who can help provide it. You are blessed to have him, and he to have you.

    I stand by my comment as well. You would hate me because if I met you trust me I would not knock myself out to please you so you can think I am worthy of your precious son to met your standards. I would be checking you out as well so see if I want to be in your family and if you meet my standards. It goes both ways. A lot of men love their wives even if they don't cook, they have gained a coupla of pounds and they ain't funny. What pleases your husband may not please your son as he gets older.

    There is great feminine power and strength in women being silent, polite, and gentle.

    There is nothing wrong with teaching young girls to be what used to be called lady-like.

    That is what's wrong with today's society, girls don't know how to be girls and boys don't know how to be boys. There is a difference and purpose in the difference between boys and girls.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    He chases a ball for a living. I have dogs that are equally as talented. There are plenty of well-educated, well-spoken black professionals who would have been better suited for the occasion.

  • the guest

    I agree, but let me expand your point.

    Black men need not be aggressive, rather they need be strong, determined, and assertive.

    Liberal whites and the black women educators and administrators whom the white liberals mentally and financially control dominate the public school systems where black male children are viewed as threats to be tamed.

    The population that most needs to be homeschooled by capable and intelligent parents are black male children.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I agree. There is an agenda to emasculate men, in general. These days, women are more masculine than their male counterparts and they've been conditioned to believe their butch behavior is normal. Sad. ?

  • the guest

    Agreed. The socially imposed increasingly masculine behavior of black women is unbecoming and unnatural. Femininity is so undervalued in the black community.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I'll preface my comment with: I KNOW and have taught my daughter that a woman or girl can do anything she puts her mind to.

    But I remind my son of that too. and the fact that he will have to work harder than her to get the same recognition. Black boys are BORN with 2 strikes (1-black, 2-male). But he has even checked other dudes in his circle about how they treat women because he was properly taught

    The thing is, there has been so much focus on only what women and girls can do, that many of the boys fall to the wayside. Boys, young and even grown men (especially minorities) NEED to hear that we can do anything we put our minds to as well. We NEED to be taught to stand up, man up. If you're shopping with your Mom, sister, girlfriend, wife AT NO TIME should she be carrying more than you. If someone disrespects a female that you are with even if it's just a friend, step up and let them know it's wrong. Show respect yourself for them.
    These are all parts of 'standing up" as men
