This image has been making a huge impact since it recently surfaced on the internet and its existence is important to the culture of the African American male society. It is the image of a groom and his groomsmen. On their chest are the attributes of how a man should treat his woman. Attributes such as Love Her. Honor Her. Protect Her. Respect Her. Please Her. And last but not least, the groom dons the attribute to Marry Her. In a day and time where black men are categorized as species of humans that refuse to be anything other than unemployed baby daddies with children scattered here and everywhere by multiple women. A species who is uneducated and does nothing but mooch off of others, listen to rap music while indulging in drugs, stealing and killing one another with no rhyme or reason. The stigma is that they don't get married and if they do, all they will do is be unfaithful and mistreat the woman that idiotically considers giving her hand to him in marriage. I must declare that this photo alone breaks every stereotype ever uttered about the black men.
This photo shows strength, love, respect and passion for women. It shows that there are black men out there who do have an understanding of how to treat the woman that they have fallen in love with to include marrying her. I absolutely adore the statement that this photo makes. Kuddos to the creative mindset behind this work and may it make a profound sound that all black men are not ignorant and they do know how to handle the precious cargo that is woman.
