Black man, Black woman let's take back our throne... When do we start caring about one another again? There was a time when we had so much respect. I remember looking at photos of my uncle's, when they were younger, from the 40's, and 50's, they dressed up to go out to the store. They were clean! I also remember going out on a date, and watching how the queen, that I was with, reacted to my treatment of her. It felt good. I picked her up at her door, escorted her to my car, opened the door, and throughout the night I showed her what it was like to be out with a gentleman.
Nowadays, it seems as if queens feel that if a man is a gentleman he must be soft. I hear queens talking about getting a "thug". Wow, time has really changed. I don't want to be that change. That's why I'm here on Ebony Over 30. I want queens to understand that a real black man, a king, doesn't have to be a thug. He can show respect. He can carry himself with honor. He knows how to treat a queen like a queen.
