We recognize the contributions and accomplishments of black men to their industry, society, and the world. Thanks for making a difference! I love this site.
Well done brother.
This article makes good point about “factors” that are protective and those that pose additional risk.
Such a journey Angel has taken, glad you shared the story. God bless!
Yes, it’s true that you are what you EAT and so is your sperm! Men take notice.
This young man has been missing for nearly a year and like too many, the case doesn’t get the attention it deserves. We must save ourselves!
This is a woman on a mission and we love her for it. Thanks for pushing this agenda!
I am new to coconut water and will seek out a sample because Mr. Williams writes so credibly about it. Who else has tried it…let me hear from you!
Say it isn’t so. Pizza is pizza, vegetables are vegetables.
Great insight on what happens in “real life” and how weight gain can creep up on you. Good stuff. I’m e-mailing this to friends.
Do you take any supplement pills? Which ones?
Great stuff. Love some mac-n-cheese.
I’m wondering what other Halloween tips am I forgetting? Add yours here…
I wonder what this is going to mean for beer and wine manufacturers in the USA and around the world?
Glad to hear this is helpful Johnnie.
Get tested and make sure you are reducing your risk for HIV and other STDs. Be careful.
Get the facts about the president’s student loan relief plan.
Get to know the facts so you can protect yourself and your sexual partners, maybe even your unborn child.
This is the type of article to link in your next e-mail to your buddies. They will thank you!
What’s so amazing is that Mr. Isaiah Washington is also a Chief of the Mende people in Sierra Leone. He’s a great guy.
Mr. Washington was such a great interview subject. It’s refreshing to talk to someone so willing to share their honest opinions and insights. Appreciated.
I appreciate that while mainstream television may not give fair and balanced coverage of stories related to black males and their communities, each of these brothers on their respective platform expands the conversation and enriches us all. Job well done brothers.
I think you are absolutely right!
Interesting that this particular article is seen as a scare tactic in comparison to other health issues. It is my hope this information helps somebody somewhere. In fact, I hope this is true for the entire website. It is the mission to taise awareness.
Mark, I can appreciate your comment. Thanks for leaving it. AS EIC, I think the message here is really “too much of a good thing” can be unhealthy in ways that do not increase HIV/STD risk. I take full responsibility for the content. Thanks again for commenting.
Asad, much appreciated. We need to support one another. Let’s connect brother.
Believe it or not, but the Super Bowl can really bring families togther. For those that dont watch football, the food and gathering, makes it a special day. Good luck to the Falcons going to the Super Bowl next year.

You may want to start with the United Way and local half-way houses.
Research indicates masturbation to be ‘normal’ and common. I’d recommend talking to a professional if it becomes an issue in your life.
Thanks for the question. Herpes typically does not manifest that way with a sex partner. I am not a physician and so I would direct you and/or your partner to a local clinic or health department. You can also call the toll-free 24 hour STD/HIV hotline at 1-800-232-4636. Be safe.
I think this is likely part of the issue. A recent Poz magazine survey identified factors why people delay treatment, the top reasons included things like, ‘not feeling sick at the moment,’ ‘not knowing who to see for HIV care,’ and the number one reason was ‘feeling ashamed and embarrassed about having HIV.’
Glad that you appreciate it.
It’s an area where there is widespread agreement that an intervention is required yet the devastation continues. What are missing here?
Agreed. It gives “family planning” a whole new meaning. It’s critical to consider the sexual partner today could be a co-parent in 9 months. Plan accordingly.
Our military veterans deserve much better treatment upon their return home. Can you imagine surviving Vietnam, Iraq, or Afghanistan only to succumb to lack of medical care at home.
Good points Kevin, I wonder about liability if the “wrong results” are publicized. Where is the liability then? Do we want to be a nation with less or more control over our medical content?
This type of device could help millions but could also risk privacy. Be careful either way.
Thanks Tarun. Hope you enjoy our other content as well.
Phil you make some great points. All of us have value and deserve respect. We need have laws and policies that reflect this as well. Racism is real, explicit and subtle just like sexism, homophobia,etc. We must do better in protecting each other and valuing each other. It’s the American way it should be.
Damon, thanks for the great comment and for sharing your own path to the correct diagnosis and services. I hope you are better than ever. Stay strong brother.
Thanks. Will check into it.
I have to admit that I had the iPhone 3G but thought it felt like a toy, then the BB Torch came out-A HYBRID. It worked for me. I like it but I have to admit to being swayed by other Apple products, so the phone would fit nicely. I’m secretly swooning the iPad2 for 2012.
I see there is an evolution in your smartphones. What single feature made you switch from BB to Droid?
It’s definitely coming. Thanks for giving us feedback.
I very much appreciate you sharing this Cheryl. Too many fathers are not in their children’s lives and it is damaging. I agree brothers must step up and women must make better decisions who decide to create a child with too, right?
I hear that ice cold is the only way to try it. I’ve had it once (ice cold) and liked it. Is it popular where you are?
Thanks Marlon. It’s disturbing but I can understand that so many brothers have so many “strikes against them”— poverty, drugs, crime-ridden communities, unemployment, baby-mama drama, poor self esteem/self-worth…along with a society that BOTH elevates the black man via the election of Barack Obama and yet personally demonizes him to the point of reinforcing that black males are systematically de-valued even when you are president…all of this contributes to brothers wanting to just “not deal with another issue” and while it’s painful, it’s understandable from a mental stress perspective.
You can always get more than one…
