Comment on I AM Not a CAUSE by Keon Whaley http://irvincohen.com/blog1/2014/06/12/black-men-and-boys/#comment-22950 Keon Whaley Fri, 27 Jun 2014 02:30:34 +0000 http://irvincohen.com/blog1/?p=169#comment-22950 As you shared (paraphrased) the contents of this article I envisioned the great white hope or heroine. You know, Dangerous Minds (the movie with white lady who played in scarface...sorry, I don't care to look up her name) and Freedom writers with ole Hillary swank. Everybody is looking to have Denzel or Halle or somebody to portray their greatness. An African Proverb I love says "don't look where you fell, but where you slipped." The problem can not be solved by addressing the results. See to get down to the core, some people have to as you said engage in some tough conversation. Some people have to be evicted from their comfort zones. Some body has to give up something. Until then it's all talk and I ain't come here to talk anyway, ya dig.

Comment on For People 40 and Over… by Johnny Arnaud http://irvincohen.com/blog1/2011/04/06/for-people-40-and-over/#comment-7394 Johnny Arnaud Wed, 12 Jun 2013 13:23:14 +0000 http://irvincohen.com/blog1/?p=42#comment-7394 Great thoughts guys. If we can strike a balance between being cool enough to get the attention of the younger generations without looking foolish and embarrassing our kids in front of there friends. We have a great opportunity to instill values and teach them valuable life skill that are rarely being taught in the culture today. The way to do that is to have something they want and they will want to learn from you. Great thoughts guys.

Then maybe you might truly understand what is going on in OUR BLACK society.

Here's another one worth an Extra 100 Bonus: "If you are 40 and over and you and your son or daughter still drink, smoke weed, or go to clubs together, give it up!
