America’s Most Wanted

The Ideal Black Man

There is one person in the United States of America that everyone wants.  He is attractive, suave, educated, God-fearing, gainfully employed, has a slamming body, loves his mama, is his own man, respects your mind AND your body, is a thug, has a mean streak, came from the wrong side of the tracks, has seen the inside of a jail, can’t keep a job, and has “questionable” practices and friends.  To whom am I referring?  Why, the Black Man of course!  Everyone, from black women to white women to the streets to jail wants the black man, and today’s post is going to point out exactly why.

First, the black woman.  It’s very simple.  To keep the Black Family strong, united, and to remain in existence you must have a black woman and a black man.  In order to have the ideal Black Family, both parents must have love and respect for each other.   They must be able to work together.  And let’s face it, the ideal black man, the one who wants to get married (to a black woman) and have babies and life happily ever after is almost becoming a myth.  So when a black woman happens upon one, she’ll sink her claws in to him before some other woman comes along, such as…

The white woman.  She may want to get married, she just may want a good lay, or she may just want something a little taboo (since the black man has always been off limits).  But whatever the reason, white women love black men.  And unlike some black women, they won’t question the hell out of their man.  He can play ball with his boys, go kick it at the club, and can go on trips without his girl tripping.  She’ll even give him some as soon as he gets back home, no questions asked.  Now, the black man the white woman will attract most likely won’t be the same guy that is being hunted down by…

The Rough Side

The streets.  In attempt to survive in the hood and to bring money to his family, the black man will let the streets take over his life.  He’ll steal, sell drugs, and maybe even kill to ensure his survival.  At first, it may start out as him doing what he can to provide for his family or even himself.  Then his obsession with the streets can take over his life; he enjoys the power, money, and respect he receives from other hustlers and the fear he puts in people in his neighborhood.  What he doesn’t realize is that this behavior could put him in the one place no one ever wants to go…

Jail.  This place may be a reprieve for some-I mean, you are guaranteed three meals a day, a place to sleep, a gym, cable, and you can get your education if you want to.  But who seriously wants to be locked up and have your movements monitored by someone else?  For those who were in the streets, it probably feels like they’re at home.  He may have his homies and family members in with him.  But being in jail and being caught up in the streets takes the black man away from building a strong black family and from having a
“no pressure” relationship with a white, or other non-black, woman.

I took some jabs today, and this post was definitely not meant to offend, but to make you think.  I tried to pick the high points, and I think you all got what I was trying to say.  Seriously, no one is as wanted as black men.  So, what say you good people?  Did you get the point I was trying to make?  Do you disagree with my statement?  If so, why? I could go on and on, but I know some of you have short attention spans and will get bored easily.  Feel free to talk amongst yourselves and share some comments.  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city.
