Why Sexual Irresponsibility Is Harmful To The African Community In America.
(ThyBlackMan.com) Growing up as a kid, I didn’t knew what the term sexual irresponsibility meant, but I knew I had 8 other brothers and 1 sister.
When I got older however, I finally realized that I was the product of sexual irresponsibility because my mom had 10 kids with 6 baby daddies in all.
I sometimes hear stories of ordinary and famous brothers like deceased rapper Shawty Lo that have over 11 kids through multiple baby mamas. My first thought was there is a huge lack of discipline and STDs are very rampant in our community.
There are a lot of guys in our community that often listen to bastardized urban music on the corporate radio that tells them that if a beautiful woman approaches them and offers them sex, they’re supposed to take it no questions asked and because of this, there are a lot of brothers that are basically baby daddies and this is very destructive to our family structure because many kids come out of these relationships and become angry and bitter that their fathers aren’t around to help raise and provide for them emotionally and financially because if they ain’t taking care of their kids from previous relationships, they definitely ain’t gonna take care of yours.
One of the most notorious cases of the baby daddy epidemic that has plagued our community over the past few decades is a football player named Antonio Cromartie, who is currently a free agent has 12 kids (4 with his current wife Terricka & 8 through at least 7 other women in different states).
To be honest, I feel sorry for the sista who is married to him because that’s not a complete man she’s married to, that’s a piece of man that she’s married to because there will always be a piece of him left behind with seven other women and it’s creates complicated situations, financial problems, etc.
I have said this once and I will say it again, “It’s never good to sleep with everything that moves very recklessly and irresponsibly and get multiple kids through several baby mamas because this negatively affects the kids that will cause them think and act in a certain way.
A lot of African men that are 20+ years old that still have the mindset of a boy will not make great husbands and fathers in the home, they will make great baby daddies which is sad.
A lot of the sexual irresponsibility that is happening in our community comes from the marketing and promotion of it from the rap songs that young African men listen to on the radio that constantly telling them to sleep with everything that moves and brag about it.
Sexual irresponsibility is harmful to our community because a lot of brothers that are not disciplined enough to understand that they can’t sleep with everything that moves.
The Conclusion – We should teach our young men the discipline they should have kids by women that truly love them and have a real relationship with them.
