Well, do they have one?
At this time, I think that this a good question to ask, because I’m not sure if enough people even care to know.
As a whole, Black people have made and are still continuing to make so many strides. We are pushing for more in politics, STEM, LGBT, education, entertainment and more. We have overcome, conquered and dominated many fields, and now can sit at many tables that not too long ago, we were not even included in or invited to. We are growing and building……and still, have quite the ways to go. With the rise of mismanagement and mistreatment of Black professionals in athletics, to the ever-growing number of police brutality and murders of Black people done by the hands of law enforcement, we are facing many walls. Sure, we are knocking, but is anyone ever going to answer the door?
In ALL of this, I find one epic trend that might be subtle, but is so important, and I think it is going unnoticed.
Black MALE mental health.
Does anyone care about it?
Aside from the fact that their basic needs for survival and equal rights are an everyday struggle to maintain, Black men’s internal and psychological needs aren’t even a part of conversation for consideration.
THIS SHOULD CHANGE.
