Dear Black boys and the Men they will become

A letter to Black boys and the men they will become

  1. Considering BLACK HISTORY has been concealed, misappropriated and defaced, do you think placing another name on a poem is all that big a deal. Besides COACH CARTER is a CLASSIC. Respectfully

    1. Nelson Mandela, said many great quotes and speeches. To proliferate a misquote would be disrespectful to his legacy and his actual words. Coach carter is a good film; but Nelson Mandela's words are real life. His actual quotes are more powerful and offer more knowledge/inspiration. So yes it is a big deal; unless your point is that because black history has been misappropriated its ok to place another name on a Marianne Williamson poem... BUT remember to wrongs don't make a right. Nor is that reasoning uplifting to black men. Your point basically says we should steal the words of others; which devalues our own words... plus is that the only thing you took from this whole blog.... Respectfully
