and the halls at work.
Most we can't see because we don't know what a
good man really
He usually isn't flashy enough or rich
to turn our heads.
He might not wear a suit or push a Lex. He might
not have a "body
with a Denzel face."
But, as you mature, you realize it's better to

You'll miss out on your own fairy tale by buying
into the myth that
are no good.
It's just not true.
Black Men, we salute you, and thank you for who
you are and all
