Black Men. Marriage. Divorce.


With an economy such as this one I encourage ALL men to wait, think twice...in fact think really hard before you consider getting married. Marriage is called an INSTITUTION for a reason and most crazy people are in institutions, lbvs. The foundation of marriage is money and once the money is gone the love is soon to follow. Trust me.

I was married for 16 years so I know what its like to love someone and then things slowly fall a part. My marriage was great, but then the little foxes of life begin to destroy the vine. Small things (not dealt with) in a marriage grow and become big things out of control or hard to comprehend, soon you all can't stand each other and you find yourselves cheating in your social media inbox.

The thing with Black women (not all) is once you lose your job you're gonna also lose your family unless GOD blesses you to find another job like really quick. Black women (not all) will put up with you not working/laid off for maybe a month, after that you better get a job delivering pizza or some thing because the complaints and arguments are sure to come.

What I've observed and seen with my own four eyes is when a Black woman (not all) is ready to move on she does it in a cold-hearted fashion. She waits till the time is ripe and puts her man out the house when he's jobless or have nowhere to go. She's very calculated about it, she makes sure all her ducks are lined up then she takes her shot. BOOM. BANG. POW. Nigga get your stuff and get your broke a$$ out of "MY HOUSE",

"lol...hey brotha, remember when you were working and it was (y'all) house? But now that you're not working she says 'MY HOUSE!' That's one of those little foxes I referred to earlier. Even though she said its cool, you can move in, she really didn't mean it or think you all would still be living there after 5 years of marriage. Hell, she thought y'all would of been moved by now!" 

A woman wants to get married and purchase a house together. Never start a marriage off by living in your wife's house because when the arguments jump off and words of love and war starts getting flung around she's gonna be sure to let you know whose house it is. The problem with most Black men is in our minds SEPARATION means DIVORCE. To a Black man if he's not living with you then y'all are divorced and only married on paper of which he doesn't respect.


There are a lot of Black men who are legally married but feel like "we don't live together, sleep together, so we're divorced!" That may be true emotionally, but its not true legally. As I was dating a woman I was also going through a divorce; however, in my head I was divorced already thus it was okay for me to date another woman. The problem is it wasn't okay because my paperwork wasn't fully complete. The woman I dated after finding out I was still legally married threw it up in my face every chance she got which in turn caused me to suddenly leave her and date another woman of whom I unwisely and abruptly married.

I was divorced and re-married within the same year, now tell me that ain't stupid?! But it was actually out of a reaction to the woman I dated finding out I was still legally married and throwing it up in my face even though that marriage was emotionally over, nevertheless, she threw it up in my face so much I suddenly left her, started dating another woman and within weeks we were married after my divorce from my first wife was over. Needless to say that marriage died as well because it was something we rushed into without really knowing each other.

"...Women leave emotionally. 
Men leave physically".

What I should of done was went to a friend's house or men's shelter after me and my 1st wife divorced, got myself together and then moved forward on the pathway to reconstruction, but instead I started dating right away, paying bills for other women which handicapped me from being on my own. I was so use to being in a relationship to the degree I was programmed that's what my life is suppose to be...in a relationship or married.

There are a lot of Black men in the situation I was in. Your wife waits till you're helpless (not to say you're totally innocent) and puts you out in the street or says "if you don't leave I'm gonna take the kids and leave" so you leave because you don't want your children not having anywhere to go. Now, you're basically homeless...you start dating out of self preservation, you then get re-married while deep within you are a broken man to the core. To ashamed to tell anyone, to ashamed to talk to anyone because you feel no one will ever understand the unfair hand you were just dealt.

Marriages don't always end over infidelity or money, sometimes people simply grow a part and instead of making sure each other is good before they part ways, they rather become bitter and evil towards one another. Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. There are many things that need to be discussed before you get married - marriage isn't something you willy nilly jump into! You should date, and then be engaged for at least two years before you marry someone. Make sure your job and life is stable. Look and listen for red flags: those are warning signs. If you can't tolerate him leaving the toilet seat up now what makes you think you'll be able to tolerate it later? The little foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) always destroy the vine because they grow and morph into full grown, bloodthirsty wolves.

A lot of people say divorce is not an option, but sometimes divorce is the only option. Sometimes you're running from Egypt only to escape into Babylon. I don't condone people divorcing and not going through counseling to at least see if the marriage is worth saving or should the cord by pulled? Either way it goes, after 16 years of marriage, trust me, I know what I'm talking about. Marriage is no joke, it is intense pressure of two adults trying to live together and compromise on a daily basis.

Its a great, wonderful, sweet thing, but it can get ugly as well. There's a thin line between love and hate, so if you're married in this day and time you better be prepared for work, because marriage is work and nothing more. But just like work, there's a payoff. So if the marriage is GOD ordained the work will be respected because you're looking at the payoff and not the labor. You're looking at happiness and not sadness. You're looking at the gain and not the pain.

Black Leaders (SUPPORTING) Bruce Rauner


In the hot contested race for Governor of Illinois there are several outstanding African American leaders supporting candidate Bruce Rauner. Please click all pictures below for a better view. In my personal opinion I sincerely think Bruce Rauner is a better fit for African Americans. I think as a businessman he'll create more job opportunities for all, and for Blacks in particular. I'm voting for Bruce Rauner and so should you. 


Check out the below 
supporters of 
Bruce Rauner!  

Pastor Corey Brooks 
New Beginnings Church of Chicago 

Dr. Willie Wilson 
Millionaire Businessman and Philanthropist

Minister Jim Allen 
Activist, Blogger, and Medical Advocate

Hermene Hartman 
Founder of N'DIGO MEGA NEWSPAPER

Pastor Stephen Thurston 
New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church 

Pastor James T. Meeks 
Salem Baptist Church of Chicago 

Pastor Larry Trotter
Sweet Holy Spirit Church

Pastor Marshall Hatch
New Mount Pilgrim M.B. Church

My friends...there are many others as well in full support of Bruce Rauner. In this Gubernatorial Race we must focus on the (PERSON) and not the (PARTY LABEL). Many are fooled into thinking every Democrat should be elected simply because President Barack Obama is a Democrat. 

That's unwisely, we must look at each individual case by case. For me Bruce Rauner has always supported Black issues and causes, not too say Gov. Pat Quinn hasn't, but too say Gov. Pat Quinn is a decent social leader; nevertheless, with Illinois in the shape it's in financially we need a leader in business and that's what Bruce Rauner provides!

CLICK THIS PHOTO!

As an African American man knowing that under Gov. Pat Quinn, Black contractors only receive 1% of State contracts also Black men in Illinois have the highest rates of unemployment in the Midwest of the United States of America is disgusting and unacceptable! We cannot afford to give someone who treats Black folks in such a manner 4 more years! 

Yup! Under Gov. Pat Quinn's leadership!

2014-15 Support the Chicago Defender

Ronald Childs and Ingrid Morris 

For years I've asked all in Illinois to support the Chicago Defender by simply investing $1.00 each week and buying this historic newspaper. Every time you buy a Chicago Defender newspaper you support Black history, and most importantly American history. The Chicago Defender is one of America's oldest Black newspapers.

Here's another reason to support the Chicago Defender...did you know the Chicago Defender financially supports the Bud Billiken Parade? The Bud Billiken Parade is the LARGEST and OLDEST African American Parade in the United States of America! The same man who founded the Chicago Defender also founded the Bud Billiken Parade. Click this LINK: http://budbillikenparade.com/parade.html

Yours Truly 

So in essence when you purchase a Chicago Defender newspaper you also financially support the Bud Billiken Parade. Its a win - win situation. Tell your family and friends to buy a Chicago Defender newspaper every chance they get. Many thanks and much love.

What Is JEWish?

PLEASE CLICK ALL PHOTOS

What does the term Jewish mean? In Old Testament times the Jews were descendants of the 12 Tribes of Israel. Jesus was a Jew (John 19:19) and a descendant of King David of whom was a descendant of the Tribe of Judah. The Apostle Paul was a Jew as well of the Tribe of Benjamin (Romans 11:1). It's important to note 10 of the Tribes of Israel succeeded which left only 2 Tribes (Judah and Benjamin).

After the death of King Solomon his son Rehoboam became King. A dispute arose over heavy taxes and the governing of the Nation which led to Jeroboam and 10 Tribes of Israel succeeding from the rule of Rehoboam (1 Kings 12:1-19). So 10 Tribes went with Jeroboam and 2 Tribes remained with Rehoboam.

Jesus told the Jews of the Old Testament/Covenant
"And think not too say within yourselves, we have Abraham as our father,
for I say unto you, that GOD is able of these stones to raise up children
unto Abraham!" (Matthew 3:9)

When speaking of what it means to be Jewish the Apostle Paul presented a different definition and dynamic. The Apostle Paul wrote "For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly, and whose circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit and not in the letter, and whose praise is not from men, but from God (Romans 2:28-29).

Through Jesus Christ to be Jewish is no longer of the flesh, but of the spirit! It is no longer of circumcision of the flesh, but circumcision of the heart! It is no longer of the letter/law, but of the acceptance of Christ as the Messiah! This is the New Testament Jew regardless of your Racial and/or ethnic background! The definition of the word ISH means to be like, in other words to be Jew(ISH) means to be like the ancient Jews of the Bible. Through Jesus the Messiah we are to observe Jewish costumes, laws (ten commandments), and Biblical precepts. The New Testament Jew is one who believes in the totality of the Bible through the doctrine of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:27) and of his Apostles (Acts 2:42, Acts 5:28, Acts 17:19).

OLD TESTAMENT leaders in comparison to JESUS (YESHUA) MESSIAH...

Moses "the Law Giver" a great man of GOD who was initiated in all the wisdom of Egypt (Acts 7:22), the receiver of the TEN COMMANDMENTS, the historical lecturer on the ancient Hebrews, scribe of GOD in delivering how the Worlds and Heavens were made, yet wasn't greater than Jesus Christ (Hebrews 3:1-6).

Jesus did not come to destroy the law, but rather to fulfill the law. Jesus is the seal on the law. Jesus is the law turned into to grace. Old Testament laws must be revered and honored through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for he is the living epistle of the law. Jesus is the interpretation of the law. Jesus was and is the law made flesh/logos (John 1:1-14). 

King David saw a vision of his LORD GOD YAHWEH saying to his LORD MESSIAH JESUS "sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool" (Psalm 110:1). Even the great King Solomon, a man greatly revered by all Freemasons as the 1st Grand Master and for building GOD a house/temple which took 7 years to build and lasted for about 380 years isn't greater than Jesus (Luke 11:31).

Simply put...YOU ARE THE 
NEW TESTAMENT JEW!

More Black Construction Companies NEEDED!



As we look at the trajectory of Black America within various disenfranchised communities stricken with poverty there must be a greater emphasis on the 'Construction Trades'. Sure, not every Black child should aspire to work in the construction field; however, construction is the biggest, largest field as it relates to contracts.

In light of over 50 schools closed in Chicago I propose some of those sites be turned into serious trade schools with a focus on all aspects of the construction field. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced a 7 BILLION DOLLAR infrastructure program in Chicago, wonder how many Black contractors are shovel ready - ready to bid and work?
