What I Love About Black Men

A shared history

We may not have physically been there to witness the erection of the pyramids or the sphinx, but we hold hands across time to a shared greatness. This connection yields  a paramount and pivotal shared experience that runs deeper than the shallowness of present attraction.

With lips full like the moon, and the African legacy, black men give you kisses that remain on your lips long after they’re gone

Their body

A beacon of beauty and strength, the natural physique of a black man is a ethereal masterpiece. From the shoulders, to the legs, to the jawline—the black man is perfect even in his imperfections.

The energy of a black man is one of a kind. Sometimes this energy is curious, sometimes seductive, other times intellectually curious.

The Potential
He could be good with his hands, a philosopher, or a teacher. The black man’s potential is as endless as his legacy.

 

The confidence  160604012743-03-muhammad-ali-0604-full-169

This is an attribute not encompassed by all, but black men who truly possess confidence are perhaps the most beautiful sight to see. Confidence is not loud, but a pleasant subtly known to all they encounter but solely referenced in the world “greatness.”

The conviction

A black man who understands and appreciates his blackness bears a conviction stronger than any mortal creation. This conviction converts non-believers and challenges the weak to be just a little stronger. 

The genetics

From the strong noses and hair, to bodies built to weather adversity–the black man bears extraordinary genetics that breeds outer beauty and inner resilience.  t_coates_credit_gabriella_demzuk

The talent

Although talent is certainly present in ancestors like W.E.B. Dubois who received extensive training, talent is also present in 1970s leader George Jackson and contemporary writer Ta-nehisi Coates who lacked formal training and reflect the talent of self-education.

Whether it’s raspy, deep, or mellow—the black man’s voice is strong and distinctive.

The strength
The black man is physically capable of mastering any task, but his strength lies in his ability to dodge the destruction implemented by our oppressors.

The envy
Black men are the portrait of masculinity unsuccessfully imitated by countless other factions.

The focus
Examples like Nat Turner, Dr. King, Malcom X, Medgar Evers, and Fred Hampton prove that the black man can do literally do anything. His abilities make it so that no task is out of reach, and nothing is impossible. hamptonfred

The walk
It may be a stride with large steps or a swagger with a slight bop. Or it may be a business like saunter or slow, small steps. Either way, the way black men move is magical.

The Charm

There are some black men that are overt charmers blessed with the gift of gab or a forthcoming energy. I would say for the most part however, that the charm possessed by most black men is unspoken. It could be in the smile, or his gentle way of speech. Or maybe in how he treats others. But nevertheless the charm is ever-present and more gjintoxicating than any cologne.

 

Black man. You complete me..
