With more and more of our young men shot or in jail because of an unjust system, Black women are faced with fewer and fewer options. We have to start dealing holistically with gun violence and “gangsterism,” as well as a prison system that does more damage than provide actual rehabilitation. But the truth is, when the overall structure of marriage is broken down in a community, that community suffers – and there’s no denying that. When our boys are seeking the affection of a Father that isn’t there, they can wind up with the wrong crowd. Join your hosts Jeremy, Jesse and schelett as they discuss what it means to have good relations between our men and women in the black community and how it affects us as a whole.
