    The problem is , that every new book written is assuming we know what a Black man is . . The next book written has to be , " WHO IS A BLACK MAN " . Because the New Black man is White and Indigenous . Now we getting some where . Lol

    What he said about some Men have NO ASPIRATIONS in life other than to get fast fast 💨 money , plenty women and migrate from house to house of women they sleep with as they navigate their way through life... pitiful but it actually applies to a lot of men out here..

    at 12:17 I agree as I am from Clevland but here is my point. Had those businesses been strong then selling them to others would not be attractive. It matters not who buys them black folk failed to pass them down to family. Asians, Latins,middle eastern folk can live on less than what we can because black folks are Americans and somehow feel they need more to be respected.

    Trump May be a racist And a misogynist but most American men are to some degree. Even black men. All I know is my family and I are doing fine. better than I was doing under Obama’s administration. Getting out in voting for a Democrat won’t change a thing. Getting Trump out of office won’t change a thing. America had problems way before he got elected and we’re gonna have problems when he’s out.

    I really don't believe when the media said Black people didn't come to the polls. I really it was more voter suppression that happens in black neighborhood. Also, like Dr. Claude said "What do I get if you want my black vote". It's very little representation when it comes to black people even from black politicians.

    I get it Tyler sell your people down the river so you can help people later. so basically I could pimp your daughter as long as I am able to help the hood and no, pimping is way worse than what he is doing but it's the same premise. You want to help Black..start with Black boys, get out the damn dress already! Wanna help Black women stop assisting in making us the laughing stock of the nation.

    Great and real brother. I will have to read, and digest this book, because it is a much needed conversation. @ the 5:15 mark, real shyt. It shouldn't have to be that way but it is unfortunately. Ed is a real brother and to be honest, he should have gotten his recognition long before the OJ interview.

    Aquafinachaser 2 months ago +1

    I truly admire Charla's attempt at understanding women and advocating for them and their voices but dont forget the reality is that black man voice is still one of the most unheard voices. Especially in black culture. There should be more attempts to converse with people outside of the people from specific location's. If there were more variety in locations there would be better understanding that the black mans voice, unless you are in entertainment or only praising our women, has grown to be very underappreciated.

    Everybody in the Black community is an "expert" on what the problem is and what the solutions should be. However, at the end of the day we're in the same place where we've been for the last 60 years.

  • michael UNITY

    We in 2020 need to vote but for a far more important reason. The divider is putting people of color lives in jeopardy everytime he speaks and holds those racist rallies. We don't stop to think about the innocent people in Wal-Mart and other places that have lost their lives because of this incompetent individual. That alone is reason to vote this election. In terms of things getting better from the democrats well how better has things been over the past years for blacks? LISTEN politicians and pastors aren't going to make things better for blacks. ONLY blacks can make things better for blacks. Our forefathers had more unity than we do today and that's sad. They had no social media, they had no internet, but they helped one another in the community. We get our Benz and big homes then we go ghost but if we would form a black financial movement with the numbers of people we have we all could get a bigger piece of negro pie. MAKE BLACK AMERICA FAMILY AGAIN!

    Ed Gordon Interview: Can't wait to read the Book... Really interesting dialogue.. To fail to dip into this "Conversation In Black" Your New Book would be missing out on a HUGE Opportunity to engage Blackness.. We are talking about at all levels,,,, Politics, unified Purpose, Hebrewness, and formulating a Unified Agenda... We have felt defeated by our circumstances for centuries and have failed to see that Our time has come... We have been tremendous blessed by Our Abba Yah with Opportunity beyond our wildest dreams.. One man who has been articulating this "Opportunity " is Ron Dalton,,, Of The Hebrews To Negroes Network.This man is an Author and chronicler of The Hebrews' Journey... It is time for The Breakfast Club to hear him... Other people would like to be the Host of This Conversation with him,,, but The Breakfast Club would be great for it... Let's talk about Blackness and our "Imminent Rebirth Opportunity" soon, on The Breakfast CLUB..
