82.3* is the percentage of African American children born since 1990 guaranteed not to live in the same home as their biological fathers. Between birth and age 16, a generation of African American youth, specifically boys, has not had access to positive male role models. Additionally, the concept of a residential father is often too far removed from these children’s reality. Many of us know the statistics; too many of us have attempted to affect the dilemmas facing young boys individually. A continuous struggle that at times seems insurmountable.

From the mainstream media to the corner barbershop, most conversations can properly identify the behavioral, social, economic, physical, psychological and spiritual challenges that define the modern era boy of color. We all know the data and research around the issues; the time has come to ask, “What are we willing to do?” When will we start to leverage our collective efforts to address the underlying pathology around this crisis? What will we do to curtail the desperate plight of our young boys? When will our dialogue transcend into real life solutions?

    The Cuisinart ICE-45 is a soft serve ice cream maker churning out
    commercial quality soft serve ice cream. Now unplug and open the Belgian waffle maker to
    confirm if it is properly baked. Another to let you know the baking is in progress and the final light that tells the cook the product is done.

    We had already listed 8 excellent workouts down, now 8 more to
    go. Repeat this step again. Perform this workout mostly to build wider,
    larger, broader shoulder muscles.

    I really enjoyed watching your documentary What Black Men Think. It was refreshing to view black men finally speaking the truth. I truly hope and pray you’ll produce more programs like this. I’m just hearing about MTB and I plan on purchasing it. Good luck to you.

    BTW, I hope you’ll discuss the critical role black females play in the lives of their sons who don’t have a father in the home.
