Are we as black men powerless in America? Some may think that it is a ridiculous question, but is it? 

The media will lead you to believe that black men are only good as athletes, entertainers and criminals. Our laws tell us that the killing of a black man has less value than anyone else in America unless we are the perpetrators of the crime. 

The image of black men as misogynist has caused us to have a tenious relationship with many black women, while our absence from our children has caused our mothers to be fiercely protective of us. Mass Incarceration, poor education and police brutality have damaged a generation! 

Even with these challenges, we have the leader of the free world in our midst in President Barack Obama, Neurosurgeons, CEOs, and Billionaires among us. How have people like Kenneth Chenault, done so well, yet our children are still dying in the streets at the hands of our system just for being black. 

We'll dig into this conversation with The Founder of The Jordan Davis Foundation, Ron Davis.
