The Woman Who Brought Actress Nia Long to Tears

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Tell us the truth:  Do you think that it’s right for us to deliberately raise so many children without their fathers?

This is a topic of heated discussion in the black community, since there is a broadening of awareness of the long-term effects of fatherlessness in the household.  People find that their kids dont’ show them them effects of the missing parent until they are old and out of the house.

Are fathers no longer relevant?

Have we lost our minds?

From youtube:

Nia Long, star of The Single Moms Club, vocalized the fears many single mothers struggle with when she asked herself a simple question: “Am I doing this right?” Nia says that, in matters ranging from raising her two sons to making the decision to separate from her partner, her own mother has continued to inspire her confidence. While recounting her mother’s resourcefulness as a single parent, Nia breaks into tears of amazement at her strength. Plus, find out why Nia hopes that opening up about the challenges of single motherhood will bring women together.

  1. This single mom brand has always existed certainly with a different outlook on the required responsibilities today. And, just look at the statistics of our children who are taking a lost do to the behaviors of parents in this generation. Mainly because both parents are taking on more financial dominance in the raising of their children, so the child lacks the natural nurturing it needs to function properly as a maturing adult. By the grace of God many children do make it productively, but there's still a social or a relationship dysfunction that reappear in sometime or another within those lives, and we pray that these people have lived enough and develop an individual spiritual bonding that keeps them stable in spite of. But, many of these women talk about the single moms brand, like the new weave of the gay marriages movement. Everything has it place and just because it's the new topic of conversation; it's still a matter of opinion on how essential it is to the order of our society. Sincerely, congrats to women and men who really are raising their children alone. This isn't a game!!!

  2. It's hard for a couple to raise kids and a single mom or dad would be twice as hard. Just as a dad can't raise a daughter with some female help just as a woman can't raise boys. Now there are exception to this rule. Women that raise boys alone have to be mom and dad and have to set good rules for the boys to be successful.

  3. Respectfully, None of us is perfect, and charity starts at home, and THEN goes abroad, so speaking of broads ( as in wide broad roads to follow) I was a briefly a neighbor of Ms. Long. The complete catering to her white neighbors and the blatant disregard and loathing expressions towards African Americans, we are talking educated, successful and articulate African Americans, brought stinging to my eyes, because the film "Boys N the Hood" made a difference in my life and I got such a kick out of "Fridays" that I was a genuine fan, that really felt that I had arrived when I quite accidently moved into the same neighborhood as Ms. Long, Now she never did anything directly to me, but her body language and facial expressions instantly changed whenever a Black person approached and she was talking to or around white people. I watch and study my people, and I know that when express unwarranted loathing for our own people, It means that there is pain beneath the aloofness and distain for the people that look like you. Low self-esteem is such a contributing factor in why, Black family units have twice the challenge of our counterparts, and how we treat each other reflects psychologically on our youth and this effects the decisions they make later in life. So I wanted to contribute this: Until we learn to love or at least tolerate our own people, we will be fighting an uphill battle when it comes to producing people that wait and postpone first time experiences with sex, and produce individuals that understand that every flaw or short coming we have when it comes to mistreating our own , was learned, Willie Lynch indoctrinated behavior. So when I see my former neighbor cry, my take on the image is entirely different, which does affirm that we need more honest dialog about how this country is and how it has affected certain (So called ) minorities' psyche's . ~ Stefan Augustus Lambert ©2014

  4. Bro. Stefan, Beloved Thank you for bold honesty and getting to the ROOT of our issue! PEACE

  5. Why is Nia crying? She made the decision to keep sleeping with men who she was not married too. In may interviews she defended her desire to have children and said she didn’t need a husband. So why cry now? Life is choice driven. Why do we get on these shows like Oprah and allow her to pull people into this emotional bullshit when folk are going to continue having sex unprotected and never get married and them allow Oprah and TD Jakes to make you feel like you have been victimized. Where is the responsibility?

  6. Kikay Exum> Mario said it all, or at least was able to cut through the media BS. I thought it was only me that could see that! The emotional BS is brainwashing, even if Oprah wont admit it. It's time to recognize. Nia Long got her break in a profound movie by John Singleton. Whenever a director gets it right, every actor's name, photo, background, and weakness is placed in a file and they are studied, like that sell-out broad in the Cosby Show, Take a look at that nasty, devil, bloody sex movie she did, and compare it to the movie Aaliya did before she was sacrificed. Every black actor that plays a strong, positive black character, they take their picture, name, background, weakness and strengths and put it in a file and then strive to capture them on film in a role that counter acts the positive and strong black image they fear so much. That why we are going to make our own images.

  7. Mario:

    I could not have said it any better than you. Too many people have grown comfortable with “being the victum” in some cases.

  8. I CAN`T AGREE WITH ALAN AND MARIO MORE. AS A RESULT OF A DIVORCE, I TRIED TO RAISE MY MALE AND FEMALE CHILD AND THEY TURNED OUT OK. BUT I CAN`T HELP THINKING IN RESTROSPECT THAT THEY WOULD HAVE BE A FULLY WELL ROUND IN THEIR OWN MARRIAGES IF THEY HAD SEEN A MORE FUNCTIONAL MARRIAGE.(THE OPERATIVE WORD IS HEALTHY FUNCTIONAL MARRIAGE). I ADMIT IT WAS DIFFICULT AT TIME. SINCE I WAS IN A PROFESSIONAL THAT ALLOWED ME TO HAVE A FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE, I WAS ABLE TO PROVIDE A MIDDLE CLASS LIFE AND STAY INVOLVED WITH THEIR ACTIVITY AND THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. TODAY BOTH CHILDREN
    ARE MARRIED WITH CHILDREN. THIS IS NOT TO SAY THE
    MARRIAGES ARE PERFECT BUT THEY HAVE ENOUGH COMMITMENT TO KEEP IT TOGETHER. WHEN CHILDREN ARE INVOLVED, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT FAMILIES STAY TOGETHER. OTHERWISE, OUR COMMUNITY WILL BE EXTINCT.

  9. We need to stop putting people on pedestals and view them as human beings instead of "superstars". Nia did what she wanted to do. I don't think she sees herself as a victim or the likes there of. She desired children and had them. She could afford them and seems to be doing fine. Black women have always been strong beings from slavery until present day. She should be encouraged for just simply doing it. We all fall short of the glory. Lest we NOT forget. Some people make choices that are good for them. Everything is not for everybody. IJS

  10. "We are sick and tired of being exploited and having these actor opportunists ACT like they care. They only, pretty much, want to be around whites, but they wont pass up the opportunity to evoke our emotion and get our support to get our money and run to spend it with the white community, If you ask them what Black businesses they support beyond their own, They can't answer. We are really tired. Don't piss us off!"

  11. It is less stressful when the father is not in the picture. They are more of a hinderance than helpful.

  12. I’m not extremely wonderful with English but I discover this extremely leisurely to translate.

  13. An extremely fascinating read, I might not concur completely, but you do make some incredibly valid points.
