“Black Men NEED to learn how to open up and communicate.”
– a post that I just read
If society and upbringing would allow Black boys to be more open, then more Black men would be naturally conditioned to just do it and would not have to “learn how.”
In order to get past this, for the men, it takes healing and trust. Even when healing and trust are attained, men will still withhold a lot. This is how many of us are conditioned to deal with things. Ask a Black man who he vents to…
As for our Black boys, allow them to be open and to communicate through their childhood. Do not call them soft, weak, gay, punk, bitch, lil girl, etc., whenever they do open up and communicate. We are too quick to tell our little boys to “man up,” so yeah, they do ultimately learn to keep a lot to themselves.
