Does today's black boys, past the test when it comes to Love and Respect?
Do they take pride in being immature, unapologetic, egotistical, selfish and hurtful???
Most women today would say YES! Why is that!?!?! In an age we've come so far, many have lost their moral compass and what seems to be their heart, in this common age. Chivalry is DEAD! Done, Fin-e-to, Ca-put!!! Thank goodness no one can read hear my thoughts, for most boys would get there feelings hurt. I doubt most women planned to fall in Love with mediocrity. Yet, were served a handful daily. It seems that in this age, boys seek out this ignorance, this way of living as a patch of acceptance from each other. If your sweet, kindhearted, thoughtful, faithful and respectful. They depict, manipulate and bash you, in a way hurtful to your self esteem. He's soft, open, and gay, are terms often used to describe such a man. An I say man, for he is a man who isn't weak hearted and easily influenced or motivated by ones approval.
I say this because, more then none, nowadays, artist are compelled reveal their disdain for it. Ciara, and her "Like a boy" song.
"Wish we could switch up the roles
And I could be that...
Tell you I love you
But when you call I never get back
Would you ask them questions like me?...
Like where you be at?
Cause I'm out 4 in the morning
On the corna rolling
Doing my own thing
What if I?...
Had a thing on the side?
Made ya cry?
Would the rules change up?...
Or would they still apply?...
If I played you like a toy?...
Sometimes I wish I did act like a boy"
"If I were a boy
I could turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was sleeping alone
I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waitin’ for me to come home (to come home)
But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand...
You don’t listen to her
You don’t care how it hurts...
Cause you’ve taken her for granted..."
Both songs, aside a numerous ones prior, all received worldly success. For the simple reason all women if not most, could relate and sympathized greatly. One big common factor in both songs, that's relevant is the term "Boy". For we hope there is a difference from such, and a Man. A man, strong and powerful, he would build up a woman instead or breaking her down. He takes pride in a woman, recognizes there beauty and makes her feel special and beautiful. Nor does he seek any approval from another or have false intentions.
It would be nice, if women could receive half of what we put out. It would be nice if we could fully trust, an not feel naive if we fall in love or compelled to ask questions. It would be nice just to simply have a Good person, a Real Black Man instead of these boys around! Is something too many women say now, more to often.
Wouldn't it be Nice!?!
