Tired Black Man -- WHATTT?
Black Women have picked up the slack for the abandonment of too many Black men and had to take on the job as the provider and the protector. Males are the NATURAL providers and the protectors of their families and their communities and BM as a whole HAVEN'T done their jobs

In spite of the fact that when I saw the trailer for this film, I got so offended that I called him and cussed his ass out to the best of my ability, I've been personally invited to a private screening of "Diary of A Tired Black Man" tonight by the producer, Tim Alexander.
The title alone is the most unnerving message that I've ever read in my life. It is so unappreciative of Black mothers and reeks of ignorance due to the low presence of Black male role models and nearly missing daily participating Black fathers in the Black family/community.
Black Women have picked up the slack for the abandonment of too many Black men and had to take on the job as the provider and the protector. Males are the NATURAL providers and the protectors of their families and their communities and BM as a whole HAVEN'T done their jobs, i.e. not providing enough=too much poverty AND not protecting enough=too much crime. Therefore, I find it simply ridiculous for any sane Black man to say he is tired.
Black women are the ones that are tired of doing nearly everything by themselves or being the working wives and nurturing mother, who now has two jobs to do--bring home the bacon and cook it too.
Black men wonder why many BW are angry, strong, tough, mouthy, etc--it's because BW simply have too much to do to be submissive all of the time. If BM want a domesticated, soft, nurturing BW, then provide for us and protect us and they'll magically see BW be the feminine woman, females are made to be.
I'm really looking forward to seeing his complete film, maybe he changed his focus or maybe he is simply a Black woman hater because he certainly believes White woman are better judging by his movie trailer.
Much love for my hard-working under appreciated sistahs, who want our men to do a better job of taking care of their families, their communities, and the Black race.
Being a career woman should be a choice for females, not a requirement for the majority of Black women.
