TIRED OF BEING BLACK
Butterfly Evolution welcomes Author Rodney Jordan -
Never Judge A Book By Its Title…. "TIRED OF BEING BLACK" offers a fresh perspective on the struggles and stereotypes of the black race from a man who personified most of them growing up but then turned his life around to become a school teacher, a basketball coach and a positive role model to hundreds of students and athletes.
In his literary work, Jordan draws heavily from his experiences growing up in an urban area largely defined by drugs, violence, teen pregnancy, and welfare. Jordan disrespected and rebelled against all authority figures in his life which led to him being forced out of his mother's home at the age of twelve. Tired of being Black exposes negative stereotypes that Black Males like the young Rodney Jordan often perpetuate through their actions, reactions and lack of actions.

Enviroment? We don't come together? We lack family value systems? We like crabs in a basket? We don't communicate? Everybody wants to be a leader? We kill one another for little or no reason at all, other than self defense. We to scared to stand up on serious issues? We won't do a worthy cause for free? Etc.,? We need to quit the circles and groups that stump for the same causes and come together like we vote...in our black grassroots communities our children are dying and when we cry for our black women and men to stand, they don't.
A blanket of silence has covered the grassroot communities. Why wait until it happens to you, before you stand. If the Whites, Jews, Hispanics, Indians, Orientals and so on can stand up, as one for a cause, and push for legislation to pass on an issue, why can't we!

What do our children have to be proud of as black children in America? We can fool ourselves and try and make believe we love being black but most black people in America, if they were honest with themselves, do NOT like being black in America.
Why would we like being black? What are the benefits, if any, of being black in America? Yeah! I know, some people say..."I love being black to make themselves feel better, but in reality, if they could change themselves to a different ethnic group...they would.
Michae, Jackson, arguably the greatest entertainer of all times, did not want to be black. He not only changed his skin color from brown to white, all of the women he married were of the caucasion persuasion. He also left the bulk of his multi-million dollar estate to white chidren.
Did Michael Jackson hate being black?
It is already hard enough being black in America, but through gay in the mix and it makes life even more difficult. Homophobia is steadily increasing, even with the progress that us gays are making with the new states making same-sex marriage legal. What's worse is when hatred is at your own front door. It seems as though the most homophobic are those in the black community; the black church going community at that. Not to say that all are homophobic, there are some black in the church that

We have been dealt another blow in the wake of the unfortunate murder of unarmed, 17-year old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida. As we have all been forced to demand justice for the arrest of his murderer 28-year old George Zimmerman, we have also been forced to face the fact that racism is still very much alive. Being black……wearing a hoodie, walking in a gated community—
