Single Black Fathers are the most unappreciated and undervalued group in the America. In light of the many good and responsible black fathers across the world, we continue to be victimized by a biased court system and overall view as a whole. I encourage SBF’s to embrace being the underdog! There’s nothing sweeter than getting a victory when being an underdog.

Our children are truly our future and it’s our job as father’s to lead, guide and direct their lives. We must parent not a from a perspective of “do as I say” but from a perspective of, “do as I do.” We must raise the bar of personal accountability as SBF’s, which will in turn raise the level of personal accountability in our children.

We must always be able to answer yes to the two following questions about our children.

  1. Is this decision going to put my child in the best possible position for success? And
  2. Is this decision going to bring my child closer to making a successful transition in being an effective contributing member of society.

If you can’t answer “yes” to these two questions when making a decision for or about your child, I strongly encourage you to reconsider. We don’t ask for the parenting task as underdogs to be easier, we ask that we have the strength, intelligence and endurance to be better.
I encourage SBF’s not to never forget your “Why”, that you are suffering so that your children don’t have to. I encourage SBF to not just strive until you get it right, strive until you no longer get it wrong. Keep fighting the good fight, My Brothers!
