Pull your pants up son!

And let me not get on the subject about the sagging.

What's up with that yo?

Do you not understand where that is derived from? It shows the population that you take sexual intercourse in your anus!

Most of the population thinks it looks cute. But it's not. It's ugly and tacky.

Du-rags, cars with big rims, and loud rap music. Cut it out!

My boyfriend will not DARE wear a du-rag in public when I'm around. What he does in his own time is his business but when he is around me he will not wear such a thing.

These lame songs, Like "speakers going hammer, dougie, bernie, chicken noodle soup" It makes you look unintelligent.

I refuse to marry a stastistic.

This is exactly the reason why when you cat call out to us black womenwe don't answer! What educated black woman wants a man that sags and calls her shawty!


Let me get something straight. . .

I am not referred to as: Ma, shawty, mama, etc...

My name is Shemiah. If you don't know it. Ask me.

Black men. . . this hub goes out to you.

Do something with your life!

Don't just be a statistic.

Instead of wanting to be a basketball player, a barber, baby daddy and not a husband. Be a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing an educated black man.

As a black woman, we as a black race are looked down upon every single day.
Give people something to look up to.

We have a black president. That shows that we can do anything we put our mind to. You just have to get out there and do it.

Of course, I could just get my bachelor's degree, but I am striving for more than that. I want to one day be Dr. Shemiah. I want to get my doctorates degree in Journalism. I have dreams and I just wish every black soul had dreams too.

Instead of getting a girl pregnant and calling her your baby-mama. Call and make her your wife.

I am a Black female from the older generation and I concur with you a milnillion percent. I am for education and success. However, many Black people of both genders rather use the displacement mechanicism and blame their lack of achievement and success on outside factors such as slavery and racism instead of doing some introspection! This is an excellent hub and I voted it up of course!

Pull your pants up, your brains are showing. You are a clever writer and I enjoy this hub and your spark. May I say . . . it is time to realize that few people look down on African Americans anymore. I don't believe it is healthy to set that as an obstacle to overcome. It has a tendency to affect the way we view others. I am thinking that almost everyone is prejudiced against 58 year old white guys. I am really mixed race of sorts. I am a mutt like Pres. Obama. I am pulling for you Dr. Shemiahl.
