Jena 6 Teen, Mychal Bell, is TROUBLED
I think we may have forgotten about the affects something so high profile could have on a teenager. So many of us got so caught up in being a part of history instead of really addressing the REAL issue: Mychal Bell is a troubled young man. But, how could we have helped him from afar? Family should have stepped up. Apparently, they did not i.e. foster home??
This is yet another reminder that WE need to do better. We must...if not we will continue to perish. Something has to give. We have yet to ARRIVE the way we should.
I am SO TIRED of having to say the same damn thing when it comes to black men, the black family.
But, here is a story that should touch your heart in a positive way.
A black father being a father even in death:
