Welcome to the world of the ones who fight for their financial stability. Why ‘money-smart millennials’? My goal is to build a tribe of millennials who are bulletproof with their finances. This blog is not just about income and savings; from budgeting tips to entrepreneurship tips, we cover all the bases. Here, by working together, you will achieve your goals.
Xennial with Millennial problems. Writing about all my intersecting identities. Dad. Black. Single. Empath.
In this blog I will go through the various problems I see with black men and some suggestions on how WE can do better. Some example topics will be Black Men and Relationships, Black Men and Family, Black Men and their friendships. I will also have an occasional guest post whose message I am in support of.
We started conversations and furthered other conversations along. We wrote pieces that the Black community discussed. We were part of the cultural conversation. We helped lead the conversation. I got the opportunity to sing the praises of Ray J and “Return of The Mack,” ad nauseam and celebrate Blackness in ways that I seriously doubt other publications would allow. We never had to sacrifice our voice, not once, to say what needed saying. Again, we did it our way.
The Gentlemen’s Standard is ambitiously redefining how gentlemen of color approach life, culture, and style. Founded in 2008, this site arose from a dissatisfaction with how men of color are sometimes portrayed in various media outlets. Moreover, this site was created due to a dissatisfaction with how some gentlemen of color portrayed themselves.
At TherapyforBlackMen.org, we want to break the stigma that asking for help is a sign of weakness.
With a rapidly growing directory of 316 therapists and 38 coaches throughout the fifty states thus far, we are here to provide judgment-free, multiculturally-competent care to Black men.
You don’t have to man up. Let’s talk it through together.
