Black Male Educator
This guy...who do you think you are? Why are you spreading the joy of knowledge to our African American men throughout classrooms around the world? Why are you a black male inside of a classroom teaching our future how to read, and how to do math, and how to be able to speak properly? Man our black future is supposed to be looking up to jeezy, t.i.p and lil scrappy for their black heritage and culture. We are supposed to be teaching our youth that the only way to be successful is to leave high school and go straight to the pros with out knowing the difference between a verb and a noun. How dare you be a standout in the African American community, teaching that education is the true way to make it in the world today. How dare you be literate and have expectations for these men. You would rather use your intellect to subdue confrontation instead of violence. You call yourself a role model? Please, we don’t need you. We have all the role models for our black men without you. Look, we have drug dealers, who make a fortune on hard work and honest money. We have rappers who talk about only sex, drugs, money, and death. Oh, and of course if you’re talented with a ball you can go play in the pros. So we don’t need you Male Black Educator. You think you’re high and mighty with your college degrees trying to give a better future to our young black men. Our future is set. You really thought you could change the perception of black men as being ignorant and illiterate? You can never change that. You’ll never be able to change that because we don’t want to leave from where we are. We are too comfortable as people with the state of the young black man in society, we don’t care if we’re ignorant and can’t speak properly. So we definitely don’t need you Male Black Educator.
