The Blame Game

I've had many discussions with men and women about our experiences and how we got to where we are right now. And let me start off by saying there are plenty of beautiful families out there, supporting each other, loving each other. When things go wrong, no one wants to take the blame, its a natural part of our existence. Have you ever seen a toddler lie? Seeing such a young being do something so naturally is amazing. It seems to be embedded in us to keep a squeaky clean slate no matter the cost.

The current situation between the black man and black woman relationship has a long history, and whenever there is a question as to why black men do this or black women do that, there is a huge part of the spectrum that is forgotten. So as a part of this series, we will be taking you back, through our history starting with our African Ancestors and taking you through the complete journey of the black family. It is important before fingers are pointed, before opinions are dismissed and facts are stated that we all know where we came from and that we all know that there cannot be a reaction without there first being action.
