I am new to this page but my father did not raise me nor did he come see me. But I had a grandfather who stepped right in. He let me know not to fault my father for his weakness. He said men go through some things sometimes that turn them completely around and they get lost. My grandfather taught me laughter and music. I was his first grandchild. He took me to his back yard where he grew his own food and we picked apples from the apple tree. I once saw a very large angry dog come at him and he pushed me away and stood his ground like some African warrior about to battle and as the dog jumped at his face he grab the dogs jaws and snapped it. This man was my father my grandfather he taught me love. I miss him. Other men in my life has not compared to this man today.
When it comes to calling a man a King I think of him

Hmmm...I find it VERY interesting that this group has only 7 members...and inactive members at that. "Lucy, you got some splainin' to do"...LOL

I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about my dear departed father...James Rafiq Rasul...He was Muslim, meaning he submitted his will to the will of God. He did that even before he knew he was Muslim. When he was 25 years old he realized that my mother, who had dropped me off for a visit, was not coming back. There he was with a little baby girl and not a clue. So he just submitted his will... I am so grateful that he did that. I was so blessed to be raised by him. My father was such a good man. Part of what made him good is that he was not always good. He grew into a good man...while I watched. He taught me so many things...how to fix stuff and how to fix myself. One thing he told me that I will ALWAYS remember..."BEHAVE IN SUCH A WAY THAT IF SOMEBODY IS TALKING ABOUT YOU THEY ARE SAYING SOMETHING GOOD OR TELLING A LIE". I love my dad and I miss him so...I honor him and all "special" black men who take care of their business on a daily basis and too often don't get anything but the big piece of chicken! Peace...Aesha\o/

Untitled (Beautiful Black Man)

Beautiful black man

I watch you

struggle

chin up, proud

knowing that you

must work harder

than other men

must

be stronger

obstacles

in your path

you keep

moving, fighting

knowing that you

must love harder

to kill these

images

that people have

"he's a criminal, a

deadbeat dad, he's

lost"

you bear the

sting

of these barbs

for your brothers that

can't

or won't fight

with you

"there are no good

black men left"

you hear them

you smile and

keep moving

fighting

loving

strong, proud

beautiful

black man

I watch you.

Black Man
©2001, 2006 Karen K. Talley


The truth of the matter is
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Whether five-two or six-seven,
Yellow fabulous or chocolate heaven
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Long and lean
With deep brown eyes
Wavy hair or dreds
With strong thick thighs
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Bald head with goatee
Cornrows or a fade
A little thick, a little thin
Oh the choices to be made
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Scholarly or not
Wall Street or hip hop
I'll sing your praises
To the mountain top
Head of the home
Provider and love
Obedient son and loving brother
There's nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

A mighty provider you've proven to be
Sacrificing your life to keep me free
Working for crumbs
When the table is bare
Praising the Lord
Leading the family in prayer
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Holding my hand
When fear emerges
Remaining faithful, suppressing your urges
Proving your strength
By turning the other cheek
Having high hopes
When the situation is bleak
There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man

Treating me like the queen
I was born to be
Never disrespecting, dishonoring, or disgracing me
Giving me credit when it is due
Oh, black man, how I honor you

There is nothing more beautiful
Than a black man!
