There’s so much negative imagery of Black Fatherhood. I’ve got tons of friends that are doing the right thing by their kids and doing the right thing as a father, and how come that’s not as newsworthy?

rarely do i follow a blog with no hesitation and buy into its message wholesale. don’t believe the absentee hype is the exception. because if you know me, you know i’m enamoured with black fatherhood and academically and sociologically obsessed with absent fathers. and this praise of presence and commentary on the falsehoods of its pervasiveness is sure to give me life.
