Since we love you guys, here are a couple snippets from the Hilary Clinton interview with Essence (even though we’re still ridin with Barack all day!):

On issues, relating to Black men:

“I reject the conversation about the failure of these young men,” she says. “These could be 1.4 million husbands, fathers and role models. When we squander their potential, we squander America’s potential. Ultimately then, the crisis of young men of color is a national crisis. ”

On her marriage:

“I know the truth of my life and of my marriage, my relationship and partnership, my deep abiding friendship with my husband. It’s been enormously supportive to me through most of my life. Now obviously we’ve had challenges as everybody in the world knows. “But I never doubted that it was a marriage worth investing in even in the midst of those challenges,” she says, “and I’m really happy that I made that decision. Again, not a decision for everybody. And I think it’s so important for women to stand up for the right of women to make a decision that is best for them.”

  • AND...

    First of all that pic was a mess. If black men want to do better they will if they don’t they won’t. Just stop crying about how hard your lives have been. Stop acting like boys and be men. As for Hillary she may not win but she is giving them a challenge.

    One thing is correct, having so many black men in jail is a National Crisis for this Country.

    This country would be better off served by preventing Black/AA Men of The United States from jail not being passive on filling cells.

    But as someone else stated…it’s time for people to take charge of their lives.

    Make better choices, step into the father’s/mother’s role for real.

    Do the things needed to become successful for yourselves and your families.

    HILLARY IS HOT…but it’s Obama for the Win…

    nice try to win us over Hil, but I aint buyin it. To be perfectly honest the majority of young black men who are considered ‘failures’ squandered their opportunities themselves and it started with their own rejection of certain ideals (primarily education & good Christian values) and placing their emphasis on other aspirations (making quick bucks via music/crime scense, living an ostentatious opportunistic lifestyle). My nephew came out a success despite living in a deprived area and it was rather the state which helped him fulfil his potential…but I dont live in every state so this can only be an opinion.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE her view on marriage. I’m not saying that every woman should stick with a man who does her wrong (hell even i had to drop K-Ci’s abusin ass after a while) but I LOVE the fact that she actually FOUGHT for her marriage. so rare these days. Good luck to you Hilary (altho Barrack still gets my vote)

    All my love

    LOL, I love Radar.

    Anyway, people are going to be and do what they want. The number of black men in jail is troubling, but it’s not representative of the whole. I feel sorry for those brothers but I don’t feel anything more than that. I feel sorry they didn’t have good role models, sorry they were abandoned and even more sorry for the children many of them are leaving without a father.

    My solution: go back to our Christian roots and family values. Honor the love and committment in our families and put health, safety and education above EVERYTHING else. Honor and idolize smart, successful honorable people and not celebrities. Watch less tv, read more books.

    Are you serious? Oh no, they didn’t. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Oh, they played Barak out with this. I’ve seen that cover before. It’s a rehash of the Vanity Fair cover from a few years back, with Tom Ford, Scarlett Johannson, and Keira Knightly. They just took the heads of the bodies and photoshopped it.

    Oh but wait, it gets better. AND HERE’S THE KICKER. You see how they have Barak as the one lying on the floor right, and how Hilary’s naked, and Rudy comes off like a pimp . . .you’re probably thinking it’s some right wing conspiracy thing, right? Well think again. RADAR is a BLACK OWNED company. Do you wanna know who’s investment group ownes the magazine that just played out Barak Obama with that cover . . .Jesse Jackson’s son, Yusef.

    Do we need any more proof of how people view us? Guiliani is fully dressed while the black man is down on all fours naked! Racism is alive and well!

  • nahnah

    how about hilary who’s naked? what in the world are you talking about, hope? and he’s not on all fours!

  • Effin For Beats

    That cover is funny! However, Hillary can go straight to hell! Her husband, Bill, is responsible for so many Black men being incarcerated when he passed the maximum sentence for crack dealers and the 3 strikes rule. That’s what started this entire epidemic of so many Black men being hemmed up in the system.
