I'm hurt. I can't Breathe.

Usually I focus on light weight banter about fashion, style, and all that stuff. I highlight the strengths, beauty, passion, motivation behind Black Men, from a fashion perspective. My Father is Black, My Brothers, My Nephew's, My Uncles, My Cousins, Teachers, Friends, Neighbors, Acquaintances, Strangers, Mates, Colleagues are also Black. My President, Senator, Attorney General, Garbage Men, Engineers, Bankers, Lawyers, Doctors, Artists, Pastor, future sons, grandsons, great grandsons are Black. And I am tired. My heart is broken, but I am not broken. I am committed to my future, to my legacy, to my sons. I can't pretend that this is not reality. So for the next year the tone of this blog will change. I'm going a different direction. We're moving in the direction of charity, and giving.  I'm going to do all that I can, to establish a safe place, safe forum, a network, and positive image for Black Men. My focus will not be highlighting their image to the public, but more on touching lives. Faith without action is dead.
