Great video. Could you do a follow up about single mothers and their sons? I grew up in a single mom household, lots a dysfunction. My mom hit the wall somewhere in her mid 40s, and when that happened, she went completely off the deep end. She'd start picking fights with her co-workers and her neighbors. She couldn't keep a job and moved constantly. She's a big drama queen, and I guess this was her way of getting her chaos fix. Anyway, in her mid-40s is also when she started calling me up, and constantly asking for money. At first I tried to help her out, but eventually I got tired of just being an ATM machine. The most egregious example is when my apartment complex burnt down, and I was almost homeless. Fortunately, some of my co-workers took up a collection and I was able to get a new place, but I made the mistake of telling my mom about my co-workers helping me out. Apparently she must have seen dollar signs in her eyes, because she started obsessively emailing and phoning me for money on a daily basis. And she wouldn't let up no matter what I said. With everything going, I almost had a nervous breakdown. It just disgusts me that my mom is like that. I moved on, and rarely have anything to do with her anymore. But, I have to say this video explains a lot of her behavior, so thank you.
Wrote a blog about single mothers and their sons a few years ago. http://shawnsjames.blogspot.com/2013/04/ways-single-mothers-destroy-their-sons.htmland one stating why men should avoid single moms: http://shawnsjames.blogspot.com/2012/08/why-real-men-avoid-single-mothers.html
Cool. I'll check them out.
You are not making any sense. You tell men to stay away from single mothers but in the same breath you say that young Black men need a positive Male figure in the household. So which is it??
I am making sense. I tell single men to stay away from single mothers. The positive male figure they need in the household is THEIR FATHER. No man can be a positive male figure to his son but his biological father.
"No man can be a positive male figure to his son but his biological father."Why? Why do you need to be biologically the father to teach a young boy right from wrong? Why is biology so important? What difference does it make?
^^^^^^ LOL I asked this question over a month ago. Why no reply Shawn?
You know what, this entire rant is ugly and misogynistic. I could go into detail on how utterly wrong you are and how specious your entire neanderthal argument is, but I'll just say that I'm done here, You've lost a reader.
