When a child is born they know neither head from tail. Everything they know is taught to them. Four centuries later someone could be knowing something different. Instead the same thing is being taught. And executed differently amongst the generations.
Can we black parents really teach our children right and save them? By all means necessary we can. We can teach our children that they are worthy of marriage and love. And because they are black that does not mean they are destined for a jail cell or death. When did it become the cool thing to sell your body for whatever a man has in his pocket? I'm not teaching my daughter or any other young lady I see after me to prostitute herself. There are many ways to sever that connection and obsession with money. Recognizing self worth is one way.
