Black men are… men who seek to be the best at what they do. We are hard working, proud men with deep desires to learn, educate, provide, and make an impact on the world for ourselves, our families and others. Black men are loyal men who support our families and friends and lend guidance wherever we can. We are men who thoroughly enjoy life, challenges and all, laugh hard, treat people with respect and kindness; passionate men, who try to live our fullest lives. We are loving, but serious and protective men, who are trying to grow within our changing world and find ways to demonstrate our love.

The one thing I know to be true about women: They are highly adaptable.

Three things every relationship should have are real, unconditional love which is best maintained through trust, communication, and non-judgment (forgiveness)

My job as a husband is to love and encourage my partner unconditionally; do my part to create a thriving union and live my own best life.

Any woman I’m involved with must be open to love me as I am, while also encouraging me to be my best.

Sext/Text/Call? All three can add to communication depending upon the time of day and our whereabouts, but I prefer calling because it’s the clearest and most intimate of the three, if we can’t be with each other in person.

I want my legacy to be… I’d like to recognized one day as a man who embodied love, facilitated others in learning to love more, and to live in love more. I’d like to be known as someone who did his part to help humanity learn to love itself across boundaries, both geographic and cultural. I’d like to be known as someone who demonstrated a way for society to bridge its divides, increase its non-judgmental care and concern for each other, and apply its technology toward the same ends.
