Danger of a neglected man

In relationships, both men and women are subject to neglect. In my book, Men are Dirt, an entire chapter is dedicated to the danger of a neglected woman, and the entire book is dedicated to empowering women. Women who have not read the book should get a copy and read it. They will find it extremely enlightening and beneficial. When it comes to the danger of a neglected man, there has been very little discussion on the topic. Although most men may never say this out loud, neglect hurts.

The plight of the Black man

Last Saturday night, I went to see the new movie "Fruitvale Station."

I cannot begin to tell you how powerful the story is. Michael B. Jordan (depicting Oscar Grant III) really captured what I call or consider the plight of the Black man.
