Mister Mommy

Okay, I could have chosen from the four rappers that were in the New York City Court house today:

Busta Rhymes, for charges of drunk driving and Assault.

Ja Rule, for charges of possession of a firearm (this is the same man who thinks seeing same sex relationships on television sets a bad example for his kids).

Lil Wayne, also up on charges for possession of an illegal firearm (I also had a make-up wearing story all set and ready to go on this young man).

And Remy Ma (the only one I don’t know), charged with assault and tapering with a witness.

Or, there was always Snoop Dog and his brawl in the England Airport (old news).

Instead I chose to go with the story on this nigger. Do you know who he is? If you are not into the sport of Ultimate Fighting, it’s a good chance you don’t. He is one of the up and coming fighters in the UFC and he is a brother. A brother, I tell you!
In the article I read about the man, whose name is Alexander, I learnt that he won his very first two light heavyweight (talk about you oxymoron) fights by Knock out. He can bench press 450 pounds and he is a mixed martial arts master (the article just said fighter, but I wanted to jazz it up a bit). Not to mention that he came into the sport as an unknown and blew the competition away.
All that being said, this is not why I chose to showcase Alexander in today’s Nigger Post. Nope, not the reason at all. I chose the muscle bound brother as my shining Negro because of the fact that I was impressed that the man is a single parent, raising six chillin’. Six chillin’, I said, ranging from the ages of 5 to 16, all by his lonesome. Can you believe that shit? I must say I was truly impressed by the brother, who is 35 years old, stepping up and taking responsibility to take care of his kids. I guess the reason why the story impressed me is mainly because I never knew my own father (not even his name). So, stories about men who stand up to be fathers truly touch me. It’s kind of hard to hate on that.
Now don’t take it from this article that I don’t think black men are capable of stepping up and taking care of their kids, far be it from the case. As a matter of fact, I am always touched when I see a young brother out with one of his bastard children (LOL…I was wrong for that. Just kidding. Seriously, I was.). I give props to all of the fathers out there, handling their business, because there are so many out there who are not. The article I stumbled across on this young man, did not make mention of where the kids mother was (I’m guessing in jail) but it managed to make me feel a lump of pride in my bosom (men do have bosoms, right?). I had to share it. I promise to get the hater train back on track real soon.

It is said when we have to set aside time to acknowledge the job that someone is suppose to do.

Props, dc!

yet another black guy said...

uh, if he is the shining beacon, why is he referred to as a N?

One Man’s Opinion said...

No one is referred to as a "N" on this site, but everyone is referred to as a nigger....It is the whole point of this blog. I even refer to myself as a nigger. I was hoping by now, after 61 post, that people were getting the message behind the use of the word nigger, as it relates to how I use it on this site.

Everybody that I refer to on this site, from Oprah to George Bush, will be referred to as a NIGGER, damn it. That's the whole friggin' point!

I, too, love it when men step up and do the damn thang when it comes to raising their kids! My father was one of the first men in California history to get full custory of his children (both daughters), so I can defenitely appreciate when another man does the same.

Oh, and we's all Niggers too!
