I cringe every time I hear that we are descendants of Kings and Queens because I feel that WE will and can only embrace Africa if we trick ourselves into thinking that we are the offsprings of only King’s and Queens. That nothing else is good enough - because we were told that.

If the world wants to talk about how stunningly it is to see a black man in a garden the way Kehinde painted Obama I get it. BUT TO SAY “It dismantles so much and creates new visions of masculinity” is insulting and disrespectful to the black men who die everyday in Chicago.

How does this portrait dismantle masculinity or provide a different vision for black men in his home state of Illinois?

There are issues labeled disgusting, and “too much.” Some make it onto the table while others get swept under the rug. As a black man in this country, I had to crawl from under it first in order to bring this message.

You know what really reflects affection for troops??? Care and treatment of war injuries! My son died after waiting 16 months for treatment of PTSD from the VA. I don't think a parade would have helped him, and I don't think a parade will help anything other than an ego.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this picture. It appears on pages 40-41 of Rebecca Caudill’s “My Appalachia” (1966). The photograph was made by Edward Wallowitch & I’d give anything to know the kid’s name & where it was made. Unfortunately, there’s no plate list.

I sometimes feel that we adults do not live up to the heights of our intentions. This is my son questioning why we have suspended support for Colin Kaepernick. I just shook my head.
